New Milani Color Statement Lipstick Formula and Packaging plus Sucky Liquid Liners

post #1 of 80
Thread Starter 

Was strolling in my local grocery and saw these displays. I only purchased 2 of the liquid liners, a matte black and a nano-glitter laden teal--both say they're waterproof. I let them dry on my hand just now and licked just once at them--obliterated. Now I suppose they'll be more waterproof in a fair test with waterdrops but geez. Anywho the lipstick looks and smells great! I think I'll exchange the liners for the lipsticks.

Thanks! I don't need ANYMORE lipsticks in this life, but I will check out at least two colors. Can't pass up a good lippie!

Ok this lippie is gonna be something! I hope they dupe Mac colors! 1-2 swipes gave me this opaqueness! Feels good on my lips, has a good smell, no weird taste, and doesn't have that slippery waxy feel. All creamy and dreamy!

Found a reset for lipsticks today in store! They kept about 4-5 colors but the rest are all new! Had to replace my Black Cherry and so glad I did. The glide is so smooth! My next replacement will be Rose Hip! And then I gotta get this Sangria l/s. It looks like it could be Cyber or Young Rapunzel l/s. Def had to get Sweet Nectar as it replaces the matte orange from the old line.  Flamingo Pose is a bright Pink-Coral. eyelove.gif

My favorites so far are Dark Cherry, Rose Hip, Orange Nectar, Teddy Bare, Flamingo Pose, Fruit Punch, and Bronze Beauty. I bought Sangria and Nude Creme. I'm NC50. Nude Creme is making me look a tad Jim Crow at full strength and Sangria is a lighter version of Dark Cherry with more red-pink. Sangria also lacks the liquid shine of the other mattes CREAMS and seems dull and not as opaque.

 

2-4-13 Edit: Sangria is considered a MATTE by Milani which is not too correct based on my swatches. It's more a pseudo matte. All other lipsticks but Bronze Beauty, a shimmer, are CREAMS.

 

Milani Color Statement Lipsticks come in 6 types:

  • Cream - Orange Nectar, Nude Creme, Fruit Punch, Flamingo Pose, Teddy Bare, Rose Hip, Dark Cherry
  • Matte - Sangria
  • Vinyl
  • Metallic
  • Shimmer - Bronze Beauty
  • Pearl

On second thought with Nude Creme, it doesn't hurt as long as I put it on lightly. I don't have very dark lips.

Like kimbunney, I have a good collection of lipsticks and cannot pass up on these new packaged lipsticks. I love the shade in Rose Hip and, well, all of them. I will definitely save up money to get my pretty little hands on these. We're all very grateful that you shared all the new lipsticks and swatches. ;-)

Oooh thanks for the swatches I need to put this on my makeup list to browse around at. (Yes I keep a list) lol

@kimbunney: I do that, too. :-)

No problem! I'm actually happy I took pictures, I thought I was being OCD for no reason lol. I noticed a barrage of youtuber beauty gurus are getting these l/s in a red lip-shaped bag from Milani but they've all been sent the same reds and two oranges in the collection. So everyone is reviewing the same thing but they're not reviewing or swatching (IMO) the most exciting colors--excluding Orange Nectar. :p

Here's hoping Violet Volt is all that as a metallic. I wore Chilled Brandy today and it is truly an opaque sheet of red tinged burgundy. I usually don't like metallics either.

Violet Volt, Double Espresso, and D'Oro arrived today. Alright, I'm let down by Violet Volt but I'm most likely keeping the it. VV is a dupe for Violetta; Violetta has a pinch of blue iridescence to make it tad different.

So completely unasked, I decided to take pics of the lippies on my crusty sick person lips outside. Enjoy.

*Note: If you see any stringy, white threads in the lipstick or around my face, it's just annoying baby wipe particles.

Teddy Bare - Cream

 

Dulce Carmelo - Pearl

 

Bronze Beauty - Shimmer

 

Chilled Brandy - Metallic

 

Fruit Punch - Cream

 

Rose Hip - Cream

Red Label - Cream

 

Ruby Valentine - Vinyl

 

Rose Amour - Cream (It's a true bubblegum)

 

Hot Pink Rage - Matte

 

Raspberry Rush - Metallic (This is a very weak shade, it's like a balm and hardly metallic. I do not recommend...unless you like that sort of thing. I'll be returning this.)

 

Uptown Mauve- Cream

 

Chocolate Berries - Cream

 

Edit 2-13-13

 

Plum Rose- Cream (Though it looks like a boring pink brown cream in the tube, it's actually a tame pink-mauve! This is an unexpected favorite!)

Once again, thank you for the swatches. Black Cherry looks promising! I ordered:

 

Uptown Mauve

Naturally Chic

Flirty Fuchsia

Sweet Nectar

Teddy Bare

Sangria

Violet Volt

Rose Hip

 

I agree that VV is a good dupe for Violetta. I did the same swatch this morning. VV has a little too much blue for my skin coloring though so it makes my lips look ghastly. I'm NC 37-40 for ref with olive undertones and pigmented lips. I love Naturally Chic looks like a dupe for Hug Me. Teddy Bare was too brown on me. Sweet Nectar applied dry and cakey. Maybe I got a bad one? Currently wearing Sangria. Love! I have to swatch the rest but we've had no sunlight here so my pics are off color.

What's the staying power on these?

post #25 of 80

Think I need to pick up Flamingo Pose!

post #26 of 80

I've been wondering if the rose hip looks exactly like the old one did. I'm absolutely horrible at comparing colors if I don't have the other in front of me. I'm actually just bad at thinking colors will look way and then get them on me and look completely different.. I've been meaning to take my old rose hip to compare. I'm also going for the hot pink rage, it def isn't as what I would consider a "hot pink" but its matte...and anything pink and matte find there way into my already to big lipstick collection... and for now that and nude cream are the ones I want to try.

I don't know what people consider the standard hours of wear, so I don't want to bias any decisions. But the longest I've worn one, Rose Hip or Fruit Punch, was 7 hours. I had to touch up after eating and the cream sheen died overtime. *shrugs* But I still had the tube color and lord afterward my lips were pigmented when I wiped it off. Yesterday taking those lip swatches, less than a minute of application and my lips were stained.

They're pretty close, just different formula, smell, and lasting power. The newer Rose Hip is cooler and the older one is warmer, but it's something you barely notice.

So did some swatches on toilet paper to compare the Color Statement (cs)  l/s to older or close alternatives. BTW, waited about 30 minutes or so indoors before taking pics of the swatches, oil from certain swatches is being absorbed by the toilet paper!

 

Column 1 Top-Bottom : Milani Violet Volt, MAC Violetta, Milani Orange Nectar, Old Milani Mandarina

Column 2 T-B: Milani D'Oro, Milani Bronze Beauty, Old Milani Bonfire

Column 3 T-B: Milani Black Cherry, Old Milani Black Cherry

Column 4 T-B: Milani Rose Hip, Old Milani Rose Hip

 

Daylight Swatches w/o flash
