MILANI Lip Crèmes

Milani Lip Color

18 shades?

Yes, Milani’s website has 18 shades of these fabulous lip crèmes I stumbled upon weeks ago. On the hunt for a setting spray from a different brand, I came across these lip crèmes at my local Walgreens. Not satisfied with the colors they had, I did some online shopping. To try them out, I only purchased four colors, Amore, Gorgeous, Precious and Devotion. I love them all!

So, why do I enjoy these lippies?? Well, the price of course is numero uno-less than ten dollars. Next, the colors themselves are beautifully pigmented, each shade is opaque just like the Milani site describes them to be. You only need to add one layer on the lips. Plus, the application is smooth due to the double-sided applicator being soft and flexible.

Below are the colors.

But, like any other product, it sometimes does have a downfall or two. These lip crèmes maybe too drying for some people. If you have dry lips as is then you might not like this product (a good tip for dry lips is to exfoliate your lips and keep them hydrated with a lip balm). I read several reviews on how flaky the formula can get after hours of wearing it. Personally, I only experienced a bit of flakiness with the color Amore. Overall, it’s a great formula for a drugstore brand.
