Bella Blue Lip Art Lipstick is part of the Milani Limited Edition Bella Blue Collection for Summer 2014. It’s a sheer metallic light denim blue with a futuristic look. It’s taken me quite some time to try as I just kept looking at it in the tube like uh uh no way, this is not going to work for me but I decided to give it a shot this weekend. The lipstick is housed in a simple clear acrylic tube similar to the cheapie lipsticks you may find in the drugstore and the formula is similar to those lipsticks as well. Bella Blue is nothing like the Color Statement line of lipsticks. It feels thin and waxy gliding on and the lasting power is zero. I know that it is supposed to be sheer but sheer is an understatement as I had to put multiple layers on to get some color to show up on me.
Bella Blue is different but kind of cute. It’s not something that I’d reach for often but it was fun to wear to jazz up some simple blue jeans and a t-shirt. I had to touch it up constantly and as soon as I ate or drank anything it was pretty much completely gone. While I’m not a fan of the formula at all I think the color is fun and perfect for when I’m feeling a little daring.
Milani Bella Blue Lipstick is available for a limited time at select Walgreens, Kmart and Fred Meyer stores $3.99
