New from Milani Cosmetics
Milani Cosmetics has some new items that I’m excited to tell you about. Milani now has new Color Statement Lipsticks and Lipliners! I received the oranges and reds to review.
Milani Cosmetics Color Statement Lipsticks
Milani Cosmetics advertising is true to its word. The new Color Statement Lipsticks are very pigmented and provide “True Instant Color…in One stroke, full coverage application.”
I love that all of the Milani Lipsticks have a seal across the opening so you know that they have not been tampered with. Sad, but I do think of these things!
All of the lipsticks are very creamy, owing to the fact that they contain Vitamins A, C, & E. Even the one matte, in Best Red, still went on very smoothly, and was, in my opinion, not what I think of as a “typical” matte finish– a finish that I usually associate with being dry. I think even in the swatch for Best Red, you can see that it doesn’t look dry at all.
In addition to, of course, being cruelty free, they are also, paraben-free. Each lipstick is only $5.49/ net weights: 0.14 ounces / 3.97 grams; and as they are high quality, they are a real bargain at that price point! There are thirty colors in total, so check the Website for other choices.
The Milani Lipsticks are available in Vinyl, Metallic, Cream, Shimmer, Pearl & Matte finish.
Sweet Nectar is a creamy orange
Orange-Gina is an orange bronze pearl
High Voltage is a red orange vinyl
Red Label is a very bright red cream
Cherry Crave is a red pearl-metallic
Best Red is a true matte red
Ruby Valentine is a deep red-vinyl
I was able to wear these colors for a full five hours before I noticed that I should either do a touch-up or I should have a snack as my tummy was growling! I would most definitely recommend that you wear the New Color Statement Lipliners with the red colors.
The only con I can find is that while I found that the watermelon taste and smell was to my liking, not everyone will agree.
Milani Cosmetics Color Statement Lipliners
The Milani lipliner is paraben free, and super creamy! It is used to line and fill in your lips to extend the wear of your lipstick and keep it from feathering. It is so long-wearing that even when the lipstick had faded, you could still see the outline, so simply experiment as to how much you should apply to put it on your lips.
The lipliners are a great price: $3.99. (There are eight lipliners all together, so check the Website for more colors)
A tip from Milani Cosmetics:
“To outline your lips, make an X on the center of your upper lip (lip cleavage). Following the contour of your mouth, start from the outer edges of your lips and work your way towards center of your upper lip (where the x is marked). This will prevent from making one arch higher, pointier or rounder than the other.”
Milani Cosmetics Duo Sharpener
Sold separately (for $3.99) will sharpen jumbo and slim pencils without breaking them! The liners are so creamy, and you want to make sure that you carefully sharpen them. Don’t forget to keep the sharpener clean, too.
All of the Milani Cosmetics products are found on their Website, and at Walgreens, Target, CVS, and others.
