Milani Beach Sand Runway Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.07 oz.) is a sheer, barely-there patina gold with a metallic shimmer-sheen. It really is rather sheer when applied dry, but it does intensify when used wet. However, this is a shade that can easily be used for that quick, two-minute eye look that adds a little dazzle to the lids without having to spend much time on it. Just a quick swipe and you’re out the door–it’s one of those kinds of shades. By itself, it doesn’t stay on for more than a couple of hours, but over a base, it worked just fine.
A silky-smooth powder eyeshadow that delivers unbelievable colour with a curved double-ended applicator. The innovative shape of the curved applicator was designed for easy application. Use the sponge applicator wet or use a thin brush to apply as eye liner to create a glamorous, intense effect on the eyes. Use the brush applicator dry for blending and shading for a subtle, natural finish.

Disclaimer: The glitter over-spray is only on the top surface of the product. Made in Italy. Use wet to intensify or dry for a softer look.

This is a gorgeous gold colour, like utmost gorgeous. Even after reading a lot about this eyeshadow, it took me 45 minutes to pick this eyeshadow up and I came home and used it for a dinner party with an Indian attire and my my, is this beautiful or what!!
The colour is a perfect subtle gold that enhances Indian eyes and skin tone. Goes very well on brown skin tone and is intense shimmery. I used it dry with my fingers and it does not give much fallout. It adds a lot of glitz and glamour to your eyes. It can be easily worn at night and if you are bold enough, for day time as well. The shimmer is very subtle shimmer and gives you that oh-la-la effect.
Paired up with bright lips and otherwise nude face, this will give you that glow and much-needed attention on the face. Let’s say if you have skipped your facial or that special step of yours to get ready, use this to give you that bling to your face, attention guaranteed!
There are so many colours available and I chose this because it was amongst my first few shimmer eye shadows. It also goes on very smooth on your eyes. This is the best value of money you can get for this price.
