Milani Color Statement Lipsticks - Review & Swatches:

More of my favorite drugstore lipsticks!

Before these came out, I hadn't used many Milani products but MAN, have they stepped up their game! From these lipsticks to blush, their amazing brow kit, great eyeliners and even pretty nail polishes. I've become such a fan of Milani!

The Milani Color Statement lipsticks are extremely pigmented, soft and creamy, lightweight and they glide on so smooth and the lasting power is impressive. There is a nice color selection and different finishes to choose from (vinyl, metallic, cream, shimmer, pearl and matte finishes)... There is a pretty strong scent, maybe watermelon.. It's hard to put my finger on exactly what the scent is but if you aren't a fan of scented lipsticks, these may not be for you. In the tube the scent is strong but once applied, it wears off in a minute or two.. The darker shades stain your lips, another thing some may not like (but I LOVE!) :)

I love the beautiful gold and simple packaging.

The bottom of the tube has a color swatch and the name & number of the shade.

 I only have three so far but I've been eyeing more every time I go into the drugstore and I'll for sure be picking up a few more soon!

Red Label (cream finish) - a bright red, absolutely gorgeous. Very pigmented, so creamy and just one swipe will give you a ton of color payoff - it will stain your lips a bit.

Fruit Punch (cream finish) - a big favorite of many, beautiful and a very unique shade of pink. I don't own anything like it. Super pigmented but can be sheered out if you want a light wash of pink, also works great for a summery stain if you blot it.

Uptown Mauve (cream finish) - one of my all-time favorite lipsticks... So pigmented, but you can sheer this out for a pretty berry shade. It is such a pretty color when worn alone, but I also love to pair this with a darker lip liner for a vampy ombre lip in the fall. This lasted through a night out, straight through till early morning. As with the other dark shades, it does stain your lips (but that just adds to the amazing staying power :) )
