Milani Brilliant Shine Lip Glosses - Swatches and Review
I got these like a week ago, because I’m having a lip product affair right now with practically all the brands, and of course I had to try these.
The shades I got (L to R):
- Luminous - Peachy Pink (shimmer)
- Brown Berry - Wine Brown (shimmer)
- Mauve Fetish - Mauve (shimmer)
- Black Cherry - Deep red (cream)
- Rose Blush - Rose Pink (shimmer)
- Berry Tempting - Medium purple (cream)
I love the texture and feel of these lip glosses—a little thicker than my usual lip gloss. Not sticky, although they get slightly tacky after an hour or so. They glide on my lips without major effort and last about 3 hours. They are slightly moisturizing, which I found great. They do have a butterscotch scent but no taste.
The darkest shades, Brown Berry and Black Cherry settled into lines and were a bit more difficult to apply than the others, although I did like the finish and color, I just wish they didn’t have to be babied. Luminous is quite sheer though a great every day shade. Mauve Fetish and Berry Tempting look quite similar except for the shimmer, and Rose Blush is a pink that I never thought I’d like but it looked great on me.
I didn’t expect to like lip glosses this much. Really impressed by the overall quality of these, and mess free packaging (I find the old Milani lip glosses too bulky for my taste).
My favorites are Mauve Fetish, Berry Tempting, and Rose Blush :)Availability: CVS and www.milanicosmetics.com for about $6.99
Hope y’all have a great weekend,
