sometimes compared to mac mulch (java bean is a little darker)
Most make up gurus suggest nyx and milani as good and cheap eye shadow brands. They have been always compared with MAC. I was able to try Nyx first. Although their lip products are up to par if not more to my standards, the eyeshadows are just so so for me. Good thing I was able to get me some milani, a hope for everyone in search for a cheap e/s. Heard it was discontinued though, so better go to ebay and grab yourself some!
