Milani Enchanted Black Opal Constellation Gel Eye Liner Review

image

When it comes to the Milani Constellation Gel Eye Liners you either love them or hate them. Me? I love them! The formula has some flaws but this $7 eyeliner is still beautiful and it gets the job done. I’m not going to tell you how long it took me to finally stop using Enchanted Lapis and Enchanted Emerald once I cracked them open!

Enchanted Black Opal is a smoky black with a stunning shimmering galaxy overspray. The overspray wears away the more you use it but you won’t lose much of the shimmery goodness. Somehow it’s still very visible once the design is completely wiped away. Oh and it changes the look of the black base too! The base is an intense black but the glitter seems to make it look more grey and gives it a sparkling effect. I like it!

Enchanted Black Opal has a very soft, creamy texture that applies smoothly but not quite evenly. It’s nicely pigmented but I still had to build it a bit to achieve an even layer. I’m more of a winged liner kind of gal so that’s my favorite way to rock Enchanted Black Opal. However, you can also smudge it or rock it all over your lids for a smoky galaxy effect too!

While Enchanted Black Opal is beautiful it shares the same curse as its limited edition counterparts. The Constellation Gel Eye Liners don’t seem to dry down at all. I still manage to get at least 10 hours of wear time before I notice any fading but it does smudge sometimes. I don’t have issues wearing it on my bottom lid but it tends to smudge on my hooded top lid if my liner gets too thick. It’s not too bad on my dry skin but it could be an issue if you have oily lids. I still think Enchanted Black Opal is worth the buy if you can happen to track it down in stores!
