I wanted to love Milani Runway Eyes Fashion Shadows in Ready To Wear($8.99), I really did. Like a date who looks good on paper, this palette should have been perfect. Warm browns, goldenrod, and champagne are some of my favorite eyeshadow colors! But like any disappointing date, my high hopes as were dashed once I got to know this product better.

Milani Runway Eyes Fashion Shadows in Ready to Wear includes six baked shadows that look gorgeous in the pan. Unfortunately, the formula is hard and chalky so you really have to work hard to load up your brush. Plus, the narrow strips of shadow are placed so close together that it is difficult to pick up one color without bumping another. Given the poor quality of Milani Runway Eyes Fashion Shadows in Ready to Wear, maneuvering around the pan is more trouble than it's worth.

Milani Runway Eyes Fashion Shadows in Ready to Wear includes a golden ivory shimmer, champagne shimmer, bright goldenrod shimmer, matte fawn, bronze shimmer and matte charcoal. The pigmentation of all the shades is poor with the exception of the golden ivory shimmer and matte charcoal, which have better color payoff.

For this look, I applied the champagne shimmer to my lids and the bronze shimmer to the crease. I highlighted the browbone and inner corners with the golden ivory shimmer. Although you can't really see it, I also blended the bright goldenrod between the crease and browbone. I tightlined my eyes with the matte charcoal.

Even though I used primer and a white base, I had to apply a LOT of shadow to get it to show up for these pictures. Given the so-so result, I am not impressed with the quality of Milani Runway Eyes Fashion Shadows in Ready to Wear.

Despite my desire to make it work, it looks like Milani Runway Eyes Fashion Shadows in Ready to Wear and I are going to have to part ways.

What's been your biggest eyeshadow disappointment, drugstore or otherwise?
