Summer Lips Part 1: Milani Color Statement Lipsticks

Hey Girls,

I am loving bright lips for spring and summer!  I recently purchased two of Milani's new Color Statement lipsticks, and I think they are fabulous.  The pigmentation is great, and the color selection is even better.  From pink to orange to red and purple, there is something for everyone!

L to R: Fruit Punch and Flamingo Pose

The first shade I chose is a beautiful pink called Fruit Punch.  It is very wearable and slightly toned down compared to my other recent bright pink purchase, Maybelline Vivid in Fuchsia Flash.  I would feel comfortable wearing Fruit Punch for day or night.

The formula of these lipsticks is very creamy.  They smell slightly fruity and are opaque in only a couple swipes.  The packaging isn't my cup of tea (I hate fingerprints on my products), but I know a lot of people really like the gold look.  I love that you can see the actual color of the product on the bottom and that the lipsticks come sealed.

The second color I bought is Flamingo Pose.  It is a bright pinky-coral, and I already know it will be one of my go-to shades this summer.  It is really easy to wear and would look great on a variety of skintones.  Since these lipsticks are so pigmented, I do recommend using a liner to keep the product where you want it.

These wear about as well as your average lipstick.  It is not a long-wearing formula, but the color lasts about 2 - 3 hours, depending on activity.

Overall, I think this is a great release from Milani.  The price is right (under $6 at most drugstores), and there is a wide color selection (30 shades).  Enjoy, ladies!

Talk Soon,
