Milani Lipsticks

I really wanted to share my new found love for this lipstick brand. I have been using several products from the Milani cosmetics line for a short while now, ever since trying out the products about a year ago.

Milani lipsticks are fabulous!

In addition to moisturizing oils, they also contain vitamins A and C which help to nourish the delicate skin of the lips.

“Bellissimo! You know how some (lesser) lipsticks look one way in the store, and then completely different in your bathroom mirror? Color Statement is the antithesis of that. A super-luxe, grown-up girl lipstick, it delivers true instant colour in a single swipe. Laced with vitamins A and C to hydrate and nourish, this collection is all about options: Corals and Reds, Orchids and Plums, Nudes, and Pinks. Trust us, you’ll want an entire wardrobe.”

Note: If you happen to be allergic to any waxes (such as beeswax) or any coloring agents…unfortunately you may want to skip this brand and go with something a little more organic and/or free of certain irritating ingredients.

I’m actually really allergic to camphor/benzoin which caused my lips to swell and the skin to peel off and leave my lips practically raw..it was not fun and not pretty!  But (besides the fact these lipsticks don’t contain these ingredients) even as sensitive as my lips are, they don’t irritate the skin in any way and actually feel super smooth and silky on.

They come in tons of different colors…

From reds…

Application:

  1. Begin applying from the center of your upper lips and work your way to the outer edges.
  2. Do the same for your bottom lips.

 

Lipliner helps extend the wear & keeps your lipstick from feathering.   When choosing a lipliner shade, match the lipliner to your lipstick shade or match your lipliner to the shade of your lips which will work with all your lipstick shades.   Create a custom lipcolor by using a contrasting lipliner and lipstick shade.

You can find Milani lipsticks on their website of course, or you can also get them from your local CVS drugstore like I did, for approx. $6.29 each.

I rate these drugstore lipsticks 4 stars!
