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.
