On Wednesday, we’re expecting from 5-12 inches of snow…to go on top of the 2 inches we got today. I think that groundhog needs to go back and look again for his shadow. I’m so sick of grey skies and dirty snow. I’ve been dreaming about summer or the Caribbean.
Since neither seems to be in the cards for me, I’m so happy I got a chance to make believe I’m in the tropics with Milani’s new Lip Intense Liquid Color that’s hitting the stores right about now!
I received Fiery Coral (left) and Pink Rave (right) to try,
two of the four new shades that also include Red Extreme and Violet Addict.
This is super-intense, super-saturated, dazzling, put on your sunglasses color. The two shades I got make me want to put on my swimsuit, beach hat and flip-flops and head to the beach!
Milani Lip Intense Liquid Color goes on glossy, but is not at all sticky. And it wears like a lipstick. It has no discernible taste or scent. What’s so amazing to me is that it’s as light as a feather. I mean the lightest feeling lip color I’ve ever worn. And unless I eat a greasy meal, it lasts for hours.
The packaging is so cool. I love the shape of the “tube”; it’s so different.
It’s flat and fits easily into a pocket, so it’s really portable.
And it’s easy to apply with the sponge-tip applicator. These lippies are great to pair with Milani’s new Anti-feathering Transparent Lipliner that I reviewed a couple of weeks ago (link to review here), shown with all the shades in one of the photos above.
On me, Pink Rave reads pink/purple and looks “cool” rather than warm on my skin.
The Fiery Coral reads hot pink with undertones of salmon and looks warm on my lips.
I can’t decide which shade suits me better: the coral or the pink.
Oh, I love ’em both! And they’ll have to keep me in a summer state of mind till the real thing arrives.
