Take a look at these two reds.

First up, Lip Intense Red Extreme, an intense bright red with a slight orange undertone. This is a warm red, but one that will look great on all, and I mean all, skin tones.

Lip Intense is applied with the sponge-tip applicator. I’m wearing it right this minute, and I still can’t get over how light as a feather this liquid lipstick is. It’s incredible.

After my review of Lip Intense last week, Rach (I think it was you, Rach) asked whether there was a scent or a taste, and I said no. Tonight, when I opened the Red Extreme and applied it, I did smell a vanilla cupcake scent that lasted for about 30 seconds or less and then disappeared completely. But I did want to point that out for anyone who might be super-sensitive to scents. However, I would not let that deter you, it’s gone in a flash. This red shade and the whole line are just amazing.

Next, Power Lip Red Control, an intense bright red with a slight blue undertone.

Although this red is slightly cooler than the Lip Intense Red Extreme, it is a beautiful, rich red that in spite of the hint of blue, you don’t need to have a cool complexion to wear it.


It’s a red with universal appeal. It goes on glossy and looks so sophisticated. Power Lip has no discernible scent or taste. And it’s applied with the all-in-one brush applicator.

How to choose?? I love ’em both! I wore Power Lip to dinner at the Arizona Grand Resort tonight, and I wore Lip Intense after dinner. The shades are very close. In fact, in the swatches below, they photograph exactly the same.

    • Merci, Nathalie! I do love these lipsticks, both of ’em. In fact, I like I like almost all of the shades I’ve tried. The Macaron Power Lip is now my go-to everyday lipstick. And I’ll be wearing one of these two reds tonight when we go out to celebrate Vday in San Francisco. I hope you’re having a lovely day <3

  2. Both look gorgeous on you! This a relatively new brand for me that I haven’t tried yet. In fact before last year I didn’t know it existed. It’s sold mainely at Walmart which I rarely go to and when I do the displays are always practicaly empty! 🙁

    • Yes, it’s a drugstore brand in the US, Helene, plus Walmart. I need to learn more about the stores in Canada so I can determine where the different brands are sold there. Here, Milani is big in CVS and Walgreens drugstores and Walmart. And you’re right, at Walmart where the price is the lowest it’s always sold out/picked over.
