review: milani colour statement lipstick


I've been trying to buy less lip products and use more of the ones that I already have. But that plan quickly went out the window when I found these Colour Statement Lipsticks from Milani! I have a few things from this brand, and what I do have, I love. So....I went for it. And honestly, I'm glad that I did.

There were a few different shades to choose from but Flamingo Pose and Naturally Chic stood out to me the most. Why? Flamingo Pose was this super vibrant pinkish red. I love how bright, fun, and bold it is! I find myself wearing this one when I want a wearable pop of colour. As for Naturally Chic, it's a really deep brownish red. I think this is going to be one I reach for a lot during Fall. It's such a rich shade!

Here are the swatches: (Left: Flamingo Pose, Right: Naturally Chic)


When it comes to the colours themselves, I just love them. It's also fantastic that the colour really builds, so it can be as bold as you want! Plus, the packaging is really pretty and glam...always a good thing. They definitely are great additions to my lipstick collection.

My only issue is that these lipsticks aren't particularly moisturizing on the lips. This probably won't affect most people, but I happen to have dry lips...which means that I always need to add chapstick over top. (Story of my life!) If this isn't a problem for you, then you will absolutely love these fabulous shades. They last well and look great.

Have you tried anything from Milani? What do you think of these lipstick shades?
