    I’m gonna definitely gonna give the Milani primer a try when my UD primer potion runs out. They recently switched it back to a die foot applicator :/. My two ride of dies for about 10 years have been Chanel stylo yeux in noir for the water line and L’Oréal carbon black mascara. They came out with a primer that matches it over the summer and I’ll never be without that now, too.

      Heather, I will be interested in earring what you think of the Milani … once you try it. They are very similar. But, I have to say that I prefer the Milani. I have never tried the Chanel Stylo. Good to know, though. I have tried the L’Oreal Carbon Black Mascara. Although I know that is a very popular mascara … unfortunately my lashes did not hold their curl. Thanks for your input. Much appreciated. xx

        I purchased the Milani and so far find it to really keep my shadows in place all day.

        Would you please suggest a good under eye concealer?

        I thank you for mentoring me and many others.
