Milani Color Statement Lipsticks Review & Swatches: Red & Orange

Milani Lipstick reds & oranges feb 2013 013

Hi Guys & Dolls!

Milani recently revamped, reformulated and relaunched their lipstick line and I am in love with it. Their lipstick is now called Color Statement, it comes in a shiny mirrored tube with a section at the bottom that shows the color. The finishes for this lipstick are: Vinyl, Cream, Matte, Pearl, Shimmer and Metallic. Vinyl is my favorite; it has intense color payoff with an almost gloss-like shine- how about we do? I was sent 7 to review, the Reds & Oranges.

What’s different from previous formulas:

The Smell: Milani has done away with the strong floral smell and gone with a toned down cotton candy. It’s sweet when you sniff it, but not obnoxious or noticeable when worn.

The Color Payoff: Just when you think their lipsticks are already top-notch they improve upon them. In the video I show the difference between last year’s Red Label and the new one. Wow! Improved color depth and intensity.

Texture: Holy wow! Again, I thought they has a good thing going on before, but I can say this is a luxury lipstick, particularly the creams & vinyls.

Other notes:

The Lipsticks are $5.49 on the Milani Website and are a bargain at that. They’ll be popping up at mass market retailers (Target, CVS, etc) near you soon! Try them if you’ve ever wanted a luxury lipstick but don’t want to fork over $15+

Milani is Cruelty Free and the Lipsticks are made in the USA!

    Those look amazing and very luxurious. If you would have just shown the picture of the products without telling from which brand they were I would never have guessed Milani!

    My fav has to be Cherry Crave! Sooo pretty! I’d like to see some pinks too so I think I will go googling and see if I can’t find some more swatches. Thanks so much for showing these! My #1 makeup is Lipstick! I don’t have to put anything else on but lipstick and still feel pretty. 🙂 ♥

    First off, you’re totally adorable! Second, great swatches! Although I feel like this collection seems to have a lot of reds. Maybe that’s just me.
