Today I am reviewing the Milani Color Statement Lipstick in the shade Sangria. I adored this shade from the minute I saw it on the shelf and I knew, I had to have one of these. So, read on to know what I felt about it. 🙂
Bellissimo! You know how some (lesser) lipsticks look one way in the store, and then completely different in your bathroom mirror? Color Statement is the antithesis of that. A super-luxe, grown-up girl lipstick, it delivers true instant colour in a single swipe. Laced with vitamins A and C to hydrate and nourish, this collection is all about options: Corals and Reds, Orchids and Plums, Nudes, and Pinks. Trust us, you’ll want an entire wardrobe.
My Experience With Milani Color Statement Sangria Lipstick:
The lipstick comes in a traditional bullet packaging, the colour of the lipstick shade is indicated at the bottom. Otherwise, it comes in a beautiful gold packaging. It looks very expensive and doesn’t feel like a $6 lip product at all. It has Milani written on the cap and it clicks shut tightly. I am a huge fan of this packaging.
The lipstick is very buttery to touch and glides smoothly when I swatch it on my hands. It is a creamy to matte finish with no sparkle or shimmer. When I apply it, it smooths right on, but some shades settle into lines when I don’t exfoliate. It does not moisturize/dry out my lips. I don’t need a lip balm or anything and my lips don’t crave for moisture. I love the way it feels; it is one of the most comfortable lipsticks I have ever tried.
The lipstick also had a weird melon-like smell. You can smell it as soon as you open the lipstick and while application, but it soon fades away. I don’t like the smell but since it doesn’t last long, I am personally okay with it. If this bothers you at all, beware. It also has a hint of the taste.
The shade is called “Sangria”. This is a gorgeous deep berry with tons of purple undertones in it. On me, it looks like a cool toned shade and gives me a slightly vampy look. I am absolutely in love with this shade for Fall into winter. It has great pigmentation and one swipe will cover all kinds of lips. It lasts on me for 3-4 hours. The best part of this lipstick is, that even when it fades, it stains my lips with a beautiful berry color as if I’ve been eating berries all day. I wear it with full coverage on opaque or just do a stained lip with this. Sangria is one of the best shades from this collection in my opinion. This is said to be a dead on dupe of MAC Rebel.
