Milani Cosmetics’ Shadow Eyez pencil in Espresso Line

Fairly straightforward brown creme…except that it wears like a $20 eye pencil and costs less than half that. The color's dark, but not blackened. It's also a neutral brown - no gold or pink tones, just an even, neutral shade.

I'm almost surprised Milani didn't release this in their initial lineup…except that I think they were consciously trying to avoid having the same basic shades as most other companies, and with Champagne Toast they had a brown liner in the collection already.
