So I’m back with another Milani review for you guys. I have a big box of stuff to get through so please bare with me. The Milani HD Advanced Lip Colors are 3-in-1 lip colors that nourishes, hydrates and adds a sheer wash of color to your lips. It comes in 12 shades in cream, shimmer or pearl finishes. I’m missing 103 Rich Caramel.
The consistency of these lip colors are in between that of a lipstick and a lipgloss. They are very sheer but can be built up for more color and are extremely moisturizing.
Romantic Rose, Classy Nude, Lovely Rouge, Modern Mauve, Cotton Candy
Vivaciuos Fuchsia, Ignition, Candy Apple, Raspberry Blush, Sweet Grape, Premiere Plum
Due to the texture they have to be touched up often and don’t really last through meals. The texture is similar to that of the Inglot Slim Gel Lipsticks, but a little less pigmented. They smell sweet like lip smackers (remember those?) but have no taste. I love the slim tube, it’s super chic and looks so pretty pulling it out of your purse. You twist the bottom of the tube and it clicks as the lipstick comes up, I could have done without the clicking noise *side eye to Milani*
Romance Rose (pearl), Rose Pink
Classy Nude (pearl), Universally Flattering Nude *LOVE*
Lovely Rouge (cream), Brick Red
Modern Mauve (cream), Mauve Red
Cotton Candy(shimmer), Shimmering Pale Pink
Vivacious Fuchsia (cream), Bright Fuchsia
Ignition (cream), Coral
Candy Apple (cream), Classic Red
Raspberry Blush (cream), Raspberry Pink
Sweet Grape (shimmer), Pale Purple with Golden Shimmer *GORGEOUS*
Premiere Plum (cream), Plum-toned Purple
Some shades have better pigmentation than others. I would have to say that Vivacious Fuchsia and Candy Apple are the most pigmented while Raspberry Blush is the least pigmented. Lovely Rouge gives the lip a nice stained look and as I mentioned earlier, Classy Nude is a universally flattering nude lippie. It reminds me of my Inglot Sleeks Cream Lip Paint in #91, my favorite nude gloss. Sweet Grape stands out from the bunch as it is the only duochrome, so unique and gorgeous.
I really like the Milani HD Advanced Lip Colors and can see myself using them a lot, especially this Winter. I get really bad chapped lips in the Winter and no matter how much balm I put under my lipstick they still tend to get chapped and windburned. Since these are very moisturizing I can replace my regular lippies with them to keep the chaps away. They are also perfect for them days when you just want a sheer wash of color or date nights 😉
The Milani HD Advanced Lip Colors retail at $8.99 for .07 oz which is on the expensive side for a drugstore lippie. I would suggest buying them when they are on BOGO. Can be purchased at www.milanicosmetics.com or at your local drugstore.
Do you own any of these?
