I haven’t been able to do a review in the last two days for a host of reasons, but never mind that because I’m back today with another (cheering lol)
Today I’m doing a review of Milani Color Statement Lipstick in the shade Sangria. I love love love this lipstick ! I had been wanting it forever, and one day I just happened upon it. I think I smiled pretty much the whole day when I did. That’s how ecstatic I was
Okay on to the review…
What Milani says: 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.
What I think: I haven’t tried a lot of Milani lipsticks, but in relation to my darling Sangria, this is absolutely true. One swipe delivers absolutely beautiful colour payoff that lasts for an absurdly long amount of time, I’m not even kidding. I get over 6 hours of wear with Sangria (without eating) which leaves behind a pinky stain after a heavy meal.
I actually expected it to be a little darker considering how moody it looked in the tube but it turned out to be a beautiful plum with pinky undertones that is extremely wearable
Top: one swipe Milani Sangria
Bottom: two swipes of Milani Sangria
See just how pigmented it is?
I love how it’s not too pink and not too purple. It’s definitely appropriate for daily wear (I wear it to work a lot so yeah) because it’s not too dark and not too in-your-face
The lipstick is housed in a gold tube with the exact colour of the lipstick at the bottom of the tube, so you know exactly what you’re buying without having to test which I think is pretty great. The cap shuts tightly with a click, so there’s no need to worry about it coming undone in your purse and staining all your stuff
It’s got a mild watermelon smell which I’m not so keen on since I don’t like watermelons but it’s not overpowering so there’s nothing to worry about. I’ve seen other reviews that say that smell goes away but I find that it doesn’t, with mine. However there is no taste.
Sangria is matte, but not at all drying. I’m used to so many matte lipsticks making my lips look so parched and in desperate need of a pick-me-up but I don’t experience that from Sangria. It’s not hydrating though. That’s one thing I do not agree with Milani about.
And the great thing is that it’s a dupe for Mac Rebel ! So those who have been wanting to get Mac Rebel but cannot afford it, Milani Sangria is for you ! I do not have Rebel to compare it with but you can check it out here
And now, as always, a full face shot of me wearing Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Sangria
Here, I’m wearing 2 swipes of Sangria. No lipliner, just pure Sangria goodness.
Do I recommend Milani Color Statement Lipstick Sangria? Most definitely ! (I was going to say hells yeah again but I stopped myself in time
Pros: amazing colour payoff
Mind blowing staying power
Not at all drying
Cons: nothing except for the smell that a lot of people may not really like
