Hello pretty IMBBians,
How’s life on your side, all happy and enjoying? I am also enjoying these days as my MIL is shopping gorgeous shades of lipsticks and other beauty products. I just pestered her to let me also try a few of them and yayyyy finally I laid my hands on this beautiful refreshing fuchsia shade from Milani. We all know about this pocket-friendly drugstore brand Milani, which is famous for its gorgeous cosmetics, especially eye shadows and eyeliners, but I am happy to try its lipsticks range now.

My Experience with Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Raspberry Rush:
Well, this is all of a sudden discovery. Actually, my MIL was searching for an economic yet “not available in India,” “Made in USA,” labeled cosmetic gift items for herself and others in India 😛 We wandered every store but hardly got anything to her expectation, its weird but true that you will hardly notice any pocket-friendly item, especially cosmetics, accessories or any outfit in good stores like Kohl’s, Burlington or Walmart which is not labeled “Made in China, Vietnam, Pakistan or sometimes even India 😛 ” until and unless its branded like Gucci, Zara, Asos, L’Oreal, Maybelline, etc., but who is generous and rich enough to get these eye candies for every single person in a family full of distant relatives P Thankfully, Milani came to our rescue and we just shopped like there is no tomorrow 😛 Even I was also excited to try Milani as I have only read about Milani eyeliners and eyeshadows on IMBB, but never tried myself, so I was super happy to shop Milani 🙂
Let me tell you, this is a super pretty fuchsia kind of shade with slight shimmer and metallic finishing on lips. I loved this shade in bullet itself and when I applied it on the lips, I noticed a sudden pinkish glow on my face :shy! Thereby, I decided I will keep it with me 😀 However, after using L’Oreal and Maybelline, I feel it pulls and tugs while applying.
I need to put on lip balm before sweeping this lipstick on my lips as it is a little harsh for me and it does gives pretty coverage after a few swipes. I feel a lip gloss or balm should be kept handy to avoid frosting or drying. The USP of the lipstick is 8-10 hours of staying power even with heavy meals and multiple water sips.
I just noticed that this lip color managed to glow up my face from morning till evening with heavy meals and mouth gargles. Even at night, when I washed my face, it just faded away with light pink stain on my lips. I am pretty impressed by its stubborn staying power now 😛 Overall, I would say its a pretty decent lipstick with longer staying power and great pigmentation, just wish it would have been more creamy and hydrating on lips.
Let’s sum up the pros and cons:
Pros of Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Raspberry Rush:
- Beautiful fuchsia shade with slight shimmers and metallic finishing.
- Paraben free.
- Packed with vitamins A, C and E.
- Gives bright pigmentation to lips.
- This particular shade instantly glows up the whole face.
- Long staying power up to 8 hours with heavy meals and water sips.
- Classy and travel-friendly packaging with mild fragrance.
Cons of Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Raspberry Rush:
- Texture could have been better, it tugs and pulls on the lips slightly.
- Does not hydrate lips, instead feels a little frosted after a few hours.
Apart from frosting part and harshness, I don’t feel any issue with this drugstore eye candy. I would love to try other shades in Milani and hoping to get more creamy and hydrating shades this time. I hope you liked my review.
