MILANI COLOR STATEMENT LIPSTICK
The packaging is nice and sleek as it comes in a gold casing. Its like any other lipstick, its a twist up and is a bullet type lipstick. keeping with the season I bought darker shaded lipsticks as I prefer maroons and deep reds for my skin tone. I bought Black Cherry which is a dark cherry coloured lipstick with a plum undertone and Cabaret Blend which is more of a deeper red coloured lipstick with a brownish red undertone. Black Cherry is a matte lipstick while Cabaret Blend is a semi-matte lipstick.
Both lipsticks as you can see form the pictures are very pigmented and have amazing colour payoff. They are both easy to apply and just glide over the lips with ease. All you need is one application for the true colour of the lipstick to pop. They feel amazing on the lips, not too heavy and the matte lipstick which is the Black Cherry didn't dry up my lips. Cabaret Blend which is the semi matte lipstick felt quite moisturising on the lips. There was no bleeding of the lips and the lipstick actually stayed in place but I prefer to wear a lip liner because that way it tends to stay longer on the lips. The lasting power is pretty impressive I must say, it lasts long enough till I get home with minimum wearing off but if I ate something there more wearing off but there was still some lipstick remaining, nothing that a little touch up cant fix. The other plus with these lipsticks are that they didn't settle into the cracks and ridges on the lips and you can see that in the pictures too.
I have really enjoyed wearing these lipsticks as it makes my features and skin tone really pop and in the winter that really important for me so that I wont look completely washed out. These lipsticks are really amazing, they are very well pigmented and has amazing colour pay off and for the price you pay they are absolutely worth having in your collection. I am now longing for more shades of this lipstick ever since I started using them. I also want to try a few other products from Milani like their baked blushes because if the lipsticks are amazing then most of their products should be good.
