Review on Milani’s Lipstick, 21 Sangria.
Not only is the color stunning, but the wear time was incredible. The color stayed on for roughly 10.5 hours, and the majority of those hours, the color stayed put. The lipstick survived intense munchies; chips, watermelon, and a shake, with the barest amount of color fading from the centre of the lips, mostly the bottom lip. Through dinner it conquered the mashed potatoes, corn and steak, with only a tad more fading in the centre, but nothing that would cause me to go running to a restaurant bathroom to touch up, if I were out.
By the time I noticed that the color would have needed a touch up, was when I was going hardcore on the white cheddar popcorn. But unluck the chips, and dinner, I was scarfing down the popcorn like that was the last bag (which it was for me). But at that point it had already been on for an appropriate amount of time for a lipstick, and I was already at home, so I didn’t care what it looked like. But even with the majority, though still slightly there, color in the centre, the outer lip still had high pigment, and the color was not bleeding, and had not smudged anywhere. Which is a good thing for a darker shade, like purples and reds, because those tend to leave a stain.
The only bad thing I have to say about the product, is the smell. It is somewhat of an intense chemically, old school lipgloss in a pot smell. I’m not sure if that description made any sense, let me know if it did. Thankfully though, the smell does not linger once it’s on the lips.
The packaging is really nice to. It’s a sleek gold case, with a clear bottom that allows you to see the color. At the bottom is the number and name of the lipstick. On the side, is the company’s name, MILANI, written in tan, cream color.
Milani is available at the drug store, and on milanicosmetic.com.
