Today, I am reviewing the Milani Color Statement Lipstick in the shade Plumrose.I wanted to get something from the mauvey-berry side of things, so got this one. 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.
The lipstick comes in a traditional bullet packaging, the colour of the lipstick case is the shade indicated at the bottom. Otherwise, it comes in a beautiful gold packaging. It looks very expensive and doesn’t feel like a $6 lippie 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 when I swatch on my hands. It is a creamy to matte finish with no sparkle or shimmer. When I apply, 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 and 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 just as you open the lipstick and You can smell it while applying but it fades away. I don’t like it 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 “Plumrose”. On me, it is a lovely mauvey pink. I am absolutely in love with this shade for Fall. It has great pigmentation and one swipe will cover all kinds of lips. It lasts on me for 3-4 hours. This is an exact dupe of Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in the shade Sultry. They swatch exactly the same and look exactly the same on my lips. So if you want one and have the other you may skip it. I think this is cheaper than the balm so you can make a call. 🙂
Pros of Milani Plumrose Color Statement Lipstick:
● Smooth and creamy

Cons of Milani Plumrose Color Statement Lipstick:
