I’ve been crushing on some new lipsticks recently, and I knew I had to write up a post and share my find with my readers! I haven’t heard too many people talk about Milani lipsticks, but I’ve heard great things about the brand overall. I’ve been wanting to try more Milani products as everything looks so beautiful, and the prices can’t be beat, especially if you use coupons at the drugstore. Next to eyeshadow, lipstick is my favorite product to buy, so naturally I gravitated towards to Milani lipsticks as the next thing to try from the brand.
I picked up two shades; Blushing Beauty and Matte Blissful. Blushing Beauty is a gorgeous, semi-matte, bright coral shade. Matte Blissful is a purple toned mauve shade with a matte finish. Between the two, I like Blushing Beauty just a bit more than Matte Blissful. The semi-matte finish is stunning, as is the particular shade against my fair skin. I also like that, depending on the look you’re going for, you can achieve a very bright look with this lipstick or you can tone it down quite a bit by blotting it with a tissue. Both lipsticks smell sweet like vanilla, which I like a lot!
I’m going to be honest, when I first tried out Matte Blissful I was not impressed. It bunched and pulled, leaving my lips looking less than awesome. The color was pretty, but I thought the formula was bad. Not wanting to jump to conclusions, I tried it again the next day, except I made sure to exfoliate my lips beforehand. What a difference that made! The formula is so comfortable and opaque, and the lipstick lasts all day. I was highly impressed the second time around. I still prefer liquid matte lipsticks over a traditional lipstick in a tube, but I do really enjoy the Milani one.
The Milani Lipsticks retail for $6 and can be found at CVS, Walmart, Walgreens, and on Milani’s website. I’m eager to try more shades of lipstick and more products from Milani, as I’ve really enjoyed what I’ve tried so far. What’s your favorite Milani product? Let me know in the comments below!
