The Dragon Fruit Lipstick is a beautiful bright pink color, but it’s sheer, not shocking, and has some coral undertones.  The Dragon Fruit Lipstick color is for all skin tones and skin types.

Obviously, the Lipstick can be worn alone, but it also looks great paired with the Mighty Shiny Lip Gel in Flaunt, that will also be available on June 1.

Dragon Fruit Lipstick Ingredients

I love that Dragon Fruit Lipstick is lanolin free, petroleum free, and mineral oil free! The Dragon Fruit Lip formula contains natural oils, vitamins, and Candelilla wax, which help to keep my lips very soft, very creamy, and looking shiny and healthy–no dried out lips for summer, or anytime! As you would expect from the quality products that Youngblood always releases, the pigmentation of the Lipstick is wonderful. Yes, I did find it to be long lasting, and especially so when paired with the Lip Gel in Flaunt.

There are no cons, and I highly recommend that if you’ve got you’re sunscreen, Dragon Fruit Lipstick, and Flaunt Lip Gel, you’re ready to hit the beach!

By the way, do you know what Dragonfruit is, and what it looks like? Here’s a photo of the Pitaya, also called dragonfruit, and it comes from a pitaya cactus.

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.

Milani Cosmetics

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.
