Milani has sent out a lot of these lipsticks to bloggers (sadly I wasn't one of them!) so I went to pick out some of the shades after seeing rave reviews. I didn't mean to really, but I happened to grab one from each color family. Definitely worth the buy! Keep reading to see why the Milani Color Statement Lipsticks will have a permanent spot in my vast collection!

The lipsticks don't have a lot of information on them (meant to look more sleek I imagine) so I'll be pulling some information from the Milani website. The lipsticks contain 0.14 oz of product (MAC Lipsticks contain 0.1 oz for reference) & come packaged in a golden reflective tube. The base contains a bit of the actual lipstick shade so you can see true color & if it has shimmer in it. I love color correct packaging, so much more helpful than guesstimating. The only information on the base is the shade name.

These have your average lipstick shape when opened. They smell distinctly of watermelon. Although that scent doesn't stick around for long, I absolutely love it. Fresh watermelon, not plastic-y at all. My kryptonite. I love me some watermelon.

Raspberry Rush- Metallic raspberry purple. I honestly didn't intend to buy a metallic shade but I didn't notice in the store. This is super pretty but I wish it was a cream since I find them a bit easier to wear. This is beautiful though & I see myself wearing this a lot.

Nude Creme- Pink based nude cream. Love this! What great opacity for a nude! Hidden shimmer that makes lips use more moisturized.

Red Label- Bright pin-up red cream. Gorgeous, seriously, the perfect red.

Flamingo Pose- Bright, warm toned coral pink cream. This is absolutely stunning. Perfect for spring & summer. Hidden shimmer that makes lips use more moisturized.

These shades have amazing, high-end like pigmentation. Absolutely impressive. The color is smooth but not drying. Very comfortable to wear. The pigmentation is absolutely perfect on all of the shades I purchased, I only use one swipe for the swatches.

I have to say, vast improvements have been made to the Milani lipsticks, these are undeniably lovely. I found mine in a permanent Milani display for only $5.49 each. Bargain, seriously. I urge you to at least pick one of these up, I can't wait to snap up some more! What shades are you loving? Anything you'd like to see more of?
