Review: Milani Color Statement Lipsticks + Swatches!

Simply Amazing!

Milani Color Statement Lipsticks
Milani lipsticks always get great reviews so I knew I had to try them! These Color Statement Lipsticks retail for $5.49 each but I managed to get a great deal on them at 30% off when they were having their memorial day sale! I took advantage and ordered five beautiful colors and here are my thoughts!
Milani Color Statement Lipsticks
The packaging is so sleek! I've never been a huge fan of gold because I feel like it ages products but these are eye catching. Milani has an outstanding color selection from nudes to pinks to berries to even out of the box colors like oranges and bright purples. It was extremely hard to narrow done my selection but I think I picked out some great colors that embodies a little bit of everything! The formulation on these is great, granted I stuck with cream finishes. They are really smooth and wear for about 4-5 hours before you have to reapply. Within the first hours they keep your lips moisturized but closer to the 5th hour is when you can feel your lips getting drier. That's my cue to reapply haha.

I did find that the color swatches on the Milani website were a bit off. Some of the colors were darker than I expected but nonetheless I still love them. I did want to point out that they do have a watermelon fruity scent to them that can be overpowering at first, but once on the lips you can't tell. Here are the swatches:

This is just one swipe so you can tell that these a rich in pigment! Here are some lip swatches:
Milani Color Statement Lipsticks in Cabaret Blend
Cabaret Blend-  a deep wine red, a really gorgeous shade for the fall and winter! I feel like I would need to use a lip liner with this one for a more even application but overall its a beautiful shade.
Milani Color Statement Lipsticks in Uptown Mauve
Uptown Mauve- a bright violet mauve, this color will be so flattering on many skin tones! I love how it looks with minimal makeup. It's bold and beautiful for the summer!
Milani Color Statement Lipsticks in Flamingo Pose
Flamingo Pose- a bright hot pink with coral tones... gorgeous! I love coral lipsticks and this one has the perfect amount of pink to make it more wearable.
Milani Color Statement Lipsticks in Rose Amour
Rose Amour- a rosey pink, one of my favorites! It's has blue undertones so it's also very wearable. There's so many pinks to choose from in the line but this one is a must have!
Milani Color Statement Lipsticks in Nude Creme
Nude Crème-  a pinky nude and the one I've worn the most! This color is the perfect nude for everyday and completes any makeup look. I love that it doesn't wash me out too.
Bottom line: I highly recommend these lippies! They are super affordable and have a great formula. I'm super excited to play with these and hopefully purchase some new colors in the future. I'm loving them so make sure to pick some up at the drugstore or order from the Milani website. :-)
