Continuing my swatchfest of the new Milani Color Statement Lipsticks, today I'd like to show you the pinks and corals in this range, which were sent to me for review. If you'd like to see the reds and oranges, click here.
NEW Milani Color Statement Lipsticks
(retail: $5.49 each, 0.14 oz)
There are a whopping 30 shades in this range (I'll be reviewing all of the remaining shades in the weeks to come). For my detailed review about the texture, consistency, staying power, etc. of these lipsticks, please click here. If you want the short version: they're awesome. They are true-to-tube, ridiculously pigmented, super creamy and hydrating. They basically feel like a $25 lipstick when on my lips. I can't recommend them enough.
Alright, let's get to the swatches!
Pink Frost, Fruit Punch, Flamingo Pose, Rose Hip, Hot Pink Rage, Flirty Fuchsia, Rose Amour
Pink Frost could not be a more descriptive name. It's pink, it's frosty, and it's not a shade that looks good with my skintone. Also, I don't recommend it if your lips are chapped (like mine) because the finish will accentuate every imperfection, as evidenced above.
Fruit Punch is a lovely peachy-pink-coral creme. Sometimes shades like this turn chalky on me, but this one didn't at all.
Flamingo Pose is probably my favorite shade of all the pinks and corals. First of all, I love the name. Second, it's one of those coral-berry-red-pink shades that's hard to describe but so lovely to look at. It's not too warm, it's not too cool; it's just right.
Rose Hip is for all you cool-toned-pink lovers out there. This is bright but not eye-searing and wonderfully pigmented. Even prettier in person.
Hot Pink Rage
Hot Pink Rage is a lovely pinky-coral matte that could wake up just about anyone's face. It's one of those colors that I would reach for if I felt pale or icky because it's a very "happy" color. Much more wearable than the name implies.
I love that Flirty Fuchsia has a vinyl finish because it gives it a slick, almost lip-glossy look on the lips. This is a very sexy, cool-toned fuchsia.
Rose Amour is another one of those "wear this when you're feeling down" shades, because it's just so pretty that it could perk you up in no time. It leans cool, but I think those who prefer warm-toned pinks could probably pull this one off too.
So, what do you think of the pinks and corals in the Milani Color Statement Lipstick Collection? Any favorites? Any must-haves? Do you already own any of these shades? I'd love to hear from you!
These lipsticks are starting to show up in the usual retail locations (CVS, Walgreens, Target, etc.) so be on the lookout for them. If you can't wait, you can always order them online here.
