Milani Color Statement Lipstick – Review and Swatches

I go through phases of obsessing over lipstick and am definitely in that phase right now. I recently tried out these Milani Color Statement Lipsticks and wanted to share as they are awesome and they cost $5!

The colors:
Red = High Voltage
Purple = Violet Volt
Pink = Pretty Natural

They go on pretty true to the tube color however the purple is not as purple and turns more into a magenta/pink once it’s on.  They are on the bold side and I think perfect for the fall. 

Pros: The application is nice and creamy and really one swipe is all you need, it’s not sheer at all.  They also have a surprisingly good lasting power!  I tend to lose all my lipstick after I’ve drank my morning coffee but these ones managed to stay on a bit longer and I did not reapply until well after lunch.

Cons: Because of the longer lasting power, I’ve found them to dry out my lips.  Nothing a quick application of lip balm can’t fix but I did want to point that out.

You can find them at most drugstores at about $5-$6 each but of course I tend to buy my drugstore makeup when they are running some kind of sale so you can often get them for cheaper!  There’s 36 colors so I will for sure be picking up more!

    I can't believe the price of these lipsticks. The third one is my favourite 🙂

    The packaging on these is really cute for a drugstore brand!
