Milani has sent out a lot of these lipsticks to bloggers (sadly I wasn’t one of them!) so I went to pick out some of the shades after seeing rave reviews. I didn’t mean to really, but I happened to grab one from each color family. Definitely worth the buy! Keep reading to see why the Milani Color Statement Lipsticks will have a permanent spot in my vast collection!
From Milani: Make a statement without saying a word! True Instant Color. One stroke, full coverage application. This next generation lipstick gives the ultimate in color, texture and finish. The lightweight creamy formula contains Vitamins A, C, & E to moisturize and nourish lips. Paraben-free. Available in Vinyl, Metallic, Cream, Shimmer, Pearl & Matte finish.
These have your average lipstick shape when opened. They smell distinctly of watermelon. Although that scent doesn’t stick around for long, I absolutely love it. Fresh watermelon, not plastic-y at all. My kryptonite. I love me some watermelon.
Raspberry Rush- Metallic raspberry purple. I honestly didn’t intend to buy a metallic shade but I didn’t notice in the store. This is super pretty but I wish it was a cream since I find them a bit easier to wear. This is beautiful though & I see myself wearing this a lot.
Nude Creme- Pink based nude cream. Love this! What great opacity for a nude! Hidden shimmer that makes lips use more moisturized.
Red Label- Bright pin-up red cream. Gorgeous, seriously, the perfect red.
Flamingo Pose- Bright, warm toned coral pink cream. This is absolutely stunning. Perfect for spring & summer. Hidden shimmer that makes lips use more moisturized.
These shades have amazing, high-end like pigmentation. Absolutely impressive. The color is smooth but not drying. Very comfortable to wear. The pigmentation is absolutely perfect on all of the shades I purchased, I only use one swipe for the swatches.
I have to say, vast improvements have been made to the Milani lipsticks, these are undeniably lovely. I found mine in a permanent Milani display for only $5.49 each. Bargain, seriously. I urge you to at least pick one of these up, I can’t wait to snap up some more! What shades are you loving? Anything you’d like to see more of?
