Milani Color Statement Lipsticks

What Milani says:
Make a statement without saying a word! True Instant Color. One stroke, full coverage application. This next generation lipstick gives the ultimate in color, texture and finish. The lightweight creamy formula contains Vitamins A, C, & E to moisturize and nourish lips. Paraben-free. Available in Vinyl, Metallic, Cream, Shimmer, Pearl & Matte finish.

Here are swatches of several of the Milani Color Statement Lipsticks. I typically buy these when they’re BOGO 50% off at CVS. There’s not too much else to say other than these are great drugstore lipsticks that come in a decent range of colors. The colors Rose Femme and Teddy Bare really surprised me, as I was not expecting to like them as much on myself as the other colors. I believe those 2 colors would look great on WOC of darker complexions as well. The color Naturally Chic is a true nude for me, for it matches my lips perfectly. If you like MAC’s popular Rebel lipstick, then Milani Sangria would be a cheaper alternative. All of the swatched lipsticks are well pigmented and showed up with one swipe with the exception of Sangria which needed 2 swipes. As far as scent, they all smell like candy! I know some people are sensitive to scents, but the sweet candy scent doesn’t bother me.

Wet ‘N Wild MegaLast Lipsticks part 1

I have to start off by saying that Wet ‘N Wild has surely stepped up their game with these lipsticks! I’m very excited to share this review with you! This will be a two-part post!

What Wet ‘N Wild says:
“Lips take center stage! This 4-hour, longwearing lip color leaves a semi-matte, crème finish in one stroke. Glides on easily with rich, velvety color that doesn’t cake, feather, or bleed. Made with hydrating skin-care ingredients.”

First and foremost, you cannot beat the price of these lipsticks! Depending on where you buy them, they can be anywhere between $1.99-2.99. The best part is if you buy them from a drugstore (think CVS or Walgreens), you can catch them during a BOGO 50% off sale! Needless to say, that’s how I racked up on them. These lipsticks are very pigmented! The swatches in the pics were all done with one swipe! They are not totally matte, as they have more of a satin finish. I would like to note that I have not experienced any dryness with these lipsticks. They do live up to the claim of lasting 4 hours. They could actually last longer if you eat your food gently while wearing them. There are about 26 colors to choose from; unfortunately, not all colors are sold where Wet ‘N Wild products are sold. I’ve noticed more colors on Wet ‘N Wild’s website that you can order (via Drugstore.com). I highly encourage you to try these lipsticks! Based on price alone, what do you have to lose?!
