Ahh….the wonders of a new year. Since the Lunar New Year, I’ve been on a binge to snap up some makeup. As someone who is more of a lip person than an eye person, why not I get some more eyes on me?
Enter Milk Makeup. Last year, it was launched by Milk Studios and the entire concept of the line is revolved around effortless high maintenance. Basically, you get the super hot “fresh off the editorial” look with very few products. In that case, take the Eye Vinyl. It’s an eye gloss that’s meant to replace your Vaseline and eyeshadow. Sounds dope, right?!
Believe me, Georgie Greville, the brains behind Milk Makeup, has me convinced that it’s time to replicate that Kate Moss circa ’94 look with the eye gloss. As much as I want to cop that look, is it really worth spending $20 for something you can do at home for like, $6?
A few days ago, I splurged on it after the Sephora saleslady told me that it was “formulated differently on the eyes”. Considering that clear lip gloss can do the same thing, I have to admit that the initial high of wearing it was amazing: I had Moss-esque eyelids and felt like a freaking runway star. But after an hour or two, the sheen kinda faded, but it was still there.
Thankfully, there wasn’t any creasing with this product; however, I hated the fact that I had to keep on reapplying it. What’s nice about the applicator is that you can use it to touch it up. While it can run the risk of having goop running down your eyes like that lady in Mulan (seriously, it happened to me when I tried it on with mascara), it’s always best to apply a little before you go all the way; hence, the small amount of liquid in the pen.
The Eye Vinyl may not be an easy product to use and/or pull off easily, but if you are dying to try a new look, go for it!
