Product Review: Milani Liquif-eye Metallic Eyeliner Pencil

Eversince I learned how to line my peepers, my eye makeup will never be complete without eyeliners. I've recently reviewed my HG gel liner, and gel liners are the ones I preferred to use because they are easy to apply and the color payoff is awesome. But there are times when the space on my makeup kit is so limited for a separate gel liner and brush (just because I prefer using another brush). Good thing there's a great alternative to my HG gel liner that gives the same effect, if not even better!

Milani Liquif Metallic Eyeliner Pencil

Extremely smooth eye pencil with the application and feel of a liquid liner that delivers true color payoff, in a metallic finish with a long-lasting wear.

Available in Black, Silver, Gold, Aqua and Brown

Colors look vibrant already even without swatching!

Milani Liquif Eye liners in Gold, Aqua and Black

after setting, I've rubbed my fingers on the swatch:

They did smudge a little (so very little), but still acceptable. Besides, I don't think we'd rub our eyes like that if we know we're wearing eye makeup/liners!

now a test to see if they are waterproof:


swatches are still intact!

I've rubbed the swatches again and...

so there, once wet and then smudged, it'll finally move. but still, you'll need a makeup remover (in my case, i use my Ponds cold cream) to remover all traces.

what I love:
  • Application is such a breeze since it smoothly glides on without any tugging of the eye area.
  • This is the only eye liner that stays on my waterlines.
  • Color payoff is so awesome, a lot of people thought I'm using a gel eyeliner.
  • It's cheaper than other eye liners that works the same, Urban Decay 24/7 liners for example.
  • No itchiness or any sort of allergies on my eye area
  • the one in shade of Black is the blackest of all black eyeliners I've used

what I hate:
  • it's so soft, so it's a pain to sharpen. what I do anyway is to put it in the freezer for 5-10minutes before sharpening it and this definitely helps
  • not sold locally, but fortunately we have local resellers here like Digitaltraincase who sells it for P350

will I repurchase?

I just asked Digitaltraincase to reserve another Aqua for me. And I'll be getting another Black soon for I am totally setting aside my UD 24/7 liner in Zero

I wish it comes in other colors like Purple, Green, White, etc. though.




These eyeliners look interesting. I haven't tried much Milani Products other than their lippies. Nice review! :D

Thanks for the review! I also love the NYX Slide On Pencils - they're quite similar.

I have the black milani one and it smudges on me! ): Maybe because I have really oily eyelids but I'm glad it works out on you! They are raved about everywhere!!
