I picked up 3 colors:
- 04 Green Safari
- 02 Brown Deluxe
- 03 Champagne Toast
They also have a white, purple and blue, but I passed on those. I already have the Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in milk, so I didn't need the white. And like so many people, I picked up the Urban Decay 24/7 shadow pencil set so I already have a purple and blue.
I was most excited about the Shadow Eyez in Champagne Toast. I thought it looked like a dupe for Urban Decay's 24/7 Shadow Pencil in Sin. I love that pencil from Urban Decay. I use it several times a week.
You can still get the 24/7 Shadow Pencils in Sin. They are $20 for 2.8g of product. The Milani Shadow Eyez pencils are also 2.8g of product, but they retail for $5.99 at CVS, so they are much more budget friendly.
Anyway, back to the dupe issue. Here is the Milani pencil and the Urban Decay pencil.

The Milani pencil is pretty much an exact dupe. I will say that the Urban Decay pencil does wear a bit longer, but the Milani pencil is definitely great quality and it's about a quarter of the price.
Have you guys tried out the Milani Shadow Eyez pencils? What do you think?
