Around two weeks ago I won an awesome giveaway from @milanicosmetics on twitter and I was gifted with five color statement lipsticks which I was surprised about because I thought I only won four! Small wins make me excited *happy dance*.

The shades I received are as follows:

  1. Chilled Brandy (22)
  2. Candied Toffies (30)
  3. Orange-Gina (03)
  4. Hot Pink Rage (15)
  5. Cherry Crave (06)

  • Chilled Brandy: a shimmery deep wine color. I found this color dragged on my lips the most out of all of them and I also found this one to be a bit dry. The color is really pretty though but I think it’s more appropriate for fall.

  • Candied Toffee: I am so in love with this shade. I have been on the hunt for an awesome flesh toned lipstick since I had a horrible allergic reaction to a certain lip balm that left a small brown scar on my lower lip. This adds just a hint of shine to my lips that is very subtle and can be worn anywhere without looking too “made up”. You know what I mean. Girls wearing Really bright lipstick in really simple places like the grocery store…or even the gym.

  • Orange-Gina I admit this shade intimidated me in the tube since I’ve never tried an orange lipstick before. Then I switched it and thought the shade was really pretty and it’s super fun on my lips. I’m already anticipating rocking this shade on the weekends in the summer. I will say this shade is a little unforgiving if you have not exfoliated your lips before application.

  • Hot Pink Rage: This shade is the least shimmery out of all the lipsticks I received and with that being said of course exfoliate and moisturize before application. On my skin tone it’s not so pink that its obnoxious if that makes sense.

  • Cherry Crave: I think this one is my second favorite behind Candied Toffees. Since everyone has been obsessed with matte finish red lipsticks (myself included) seeing one that I like with a shimmery finish was exciting.

Overall I’m pretty impressed with the Milani Color Statement Lipsticks. Which is great and depressing at the same time because I know they sell these at Target. When can you ever resist buying something you love when it’s at Target? It’s like physically impossible. I really like how pigmented these are and can’t wait to test their longevity over the next couple of days. But go out and try these and let me know what you think!
