Milani Color Statement Lipstick Review + Swatches

Hello Beauties!

Yesterday's Pick of the Week inspired today's review.  Today I am reviewing Milani Color Statement Lipsticks. These new and improved lipsticks from Milani Cosmetics were launched a few weeks ago and ever since, makeup lovers have been scrambling to stores to find them.  I was very intrigued by them after reading Nouveau Cheap's post on them and after a few trips to various stores, I finally spotted them.


I found these babies in my local CVS.  After discovering that some of the shades were not sold at my local store, I decided to bring home Fruit Punch and Uptown Mauve.  Can you tell I love pink lippies?  Let's get into the review!

Photos + Swatches






Pros

  • Affordable
  • Great Color Variety
  • Highly Pigmented
  • Long Lasting

Cons

  • Difficult to Locate
  • Slight Fragrance

My Thoughts

What can I say?  I was very impressed with what Milani has brought to the table.  I didn't think their previous formula for lipsticks was bad; however, with the new case and shape, it's much more practical.  I love the pigmentation and the lasting color.  I could definitely go without the slight waxy fragrance it comes with, but I am not sensitive to smells so I can deal with it.  I can honestly say I still like Wet 'n Wild Mega Last Lipsticks better, but these are a close second in my book.

Would I Re-Purchase?

Definitely!  However, I would stick to only the cream finishes.  I briefly owned Raspberry Rush, but the formula, Metallic, was too rough on my lips.

Are you going to give these lipsticks a try?

God bless & stay fabellis,

  5. No problem! I appreciate you stopping by. I actually purchased Rose Hip, but I returned it because it's identical to the previous one they hide sans the new packaging. It's a beautiful color!

  6. Thanks for stopping by Roxy! I think orange would be so gorgeous on you. If you can't find these, check out a few orangy/red shades by Wed 'n Wild. They are even cheaper and last forever on the lips!
