Today I am going to talk about one of my favorite drugstore lipstick formulas! The Milani color statement lipsticks are priced between 6 to 7 $ and for that price point it is an awesome product 🙂
As I was saying the formula of these lipsticks is fantastic! It is creamy but not overly shiny. I also like that it does not drag on your lips during application nor does it dry your lips out as the day goes by.
The shade Plumrose is really beautiful! It is a pink shade with a brown undertone. I have seen this lipstick shade look different on different people but overall it looks great on almost everyone! I find it the perfect pink shade for everyday use since it is a understated pink on the lips 🙂
The wear time isn’t super long as you might expect from a matte formula but these do great for being a creamy finish. They do last a good 4 to 5 hours with light eating and drinking and might need to be reapplied after a major meal. This is not a transfer proof lipstick either, they easily leave marks on your cups and Tissue papers 🙂 but then again its a creamy finish and so I ain’t complaining!
For the price, I find the packaging good too! It is a plain gold tube which snaps shut so you don’t have to worry about it messing up your purse when you take it along.
The only con about this lipstick is the smell. It smells like watermelon (the synthetic kind) and it hits you the moment you open the tube of lipstick. I find that the scent disappears once you apply the lipstick on your lips and so it is still bearable.Thankfully the newly released matte versions of the color statement lipsticks don’t have this smell (Yay! They listened to their customers since many people hated the watermelon scent).
Overall, Milani is a fantastic drugstore brand and I love the formula of the color statement line and the shade Plumrose is too pretty to pass up 🙂
Until next time …ciao!!!
