Oh, I am so excited about the new lipsticks that I just received from Milani! What an unexpected surprise! There’s nothing like new lipsticks to give me a lift 😆
Milani Moisture Matte Color Statement Lipsticks
One of the trends this year is comfortable-to-wear, i.e. non-drying, matte lipsticks.
Milani has just added 8 brand new Moisture Matte Lipsticks to its Color Statement line:
- Innocence (60): pale pink nude
- Naked (61): nude
- Blissful (62): lavender pink
- Diva (63): hot pink
- Orchid (64): purpled pink
- Glam (65): purple
- Passion (66): bright orange-red
- Confident (67): burgundy wine
The new Moisture Matte Lipsticks are made with grape seed extract imported from Italy and are amazingly lightweight, seriously comfortable to wear, smearproof, and long-lasting. They’re priced around $4.99-5.99.
Ingredients: Isononyl Isononanoate, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Polyethylene, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cera Microcristallina (Microcrystalline Wax), Synthetic Wax, Mica, Stearalkonium Hectorite, C30-45 Alkyl Dimethicone, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Cetyl Dimethicone, Propylene Carbonate, Dimethicone, Ethyl Vanillin, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-di-t-butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Laureth-4, Dicalcium Phosphate. +/- May Contain: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Red 6 (CI 15850), Red 7 (CI 15850), Red 28 (CI 45410), Red 34 (CI 15880), Yellow 5 (CI 19140), Blue 1 (CI 42090), Manganese Violet (CI 77742).
Milani Vegan Color Statement Lipsticks
In addition, the folks at Milani were generous to include two other pink Color Statement lipsticks in the box that I received:
- Catwalk Pink (45), cool, girly pink
- Power Pink (46), bright fuchsia.
I think the reason I received these two new shades that are new additions to the regular Color Statement Lipstick line is that they are both VEGAN! The two pink pretties have a satin finish, but they are just as comfy to wear as the new mattes.
I was so eager to swatch all these beauties that I went right to it without realizing that Catwalk Pink and Power Pink were not part of the new matte lineup so they are tucked into the photos above. Until you put them on your lips (see the photo of Catwalk Pink at the end of the post), you really can’t tell the difference in the finish. In terms of color, I think they fit right in. But here they are on their own:
Milani Color Statement Lipliners
Also tucked in the box were two new Color Statement Lipliners in two beautiful, very wearable shades:
- Bordeaux (12)
- Pretty Pink (13).
There are 8 lipliner shades available in total priced from about $3.49-3.99. They’re made in the Czech Republic. Here’s the ingredient list:
Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Synthetic Wax, Zeolite, Stearyl Dimethicone, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Hydrogenated Polydicyclopentadiene-2, Polyethylene, Diisostearyl Malate, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-di-t-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891). +/- May Contain: Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Red 6 (CI 15850), Red 7 (CI 15850), Red 28 (CI 45410), Yellow 5 (CI 19140), Carmine (CI 75470), Blue 1 (CI 42090)
I tried out Pretty Pink with Catwalk Pink Lipstick and also with Matte Naked, and I think it’s a perfect lipliner for Matte Naked. Also in these lip pix, you can see the difference in the finish of Catwalk Pink (satin):
and Matte Naked:
Here’s lipliner Bordeaux with new Matte Confident taken in indoor light at night. I really love this shade. I expected it to be more burgundy but in the golden indoor light, it looks brighter and redder.
The new Milani lipsticks are made in the U.S. Each is 0.14 oz. Milani Cosmetics are cruelty-free, and now some of the lipsticks are even vegan. I haven’t been shopping lately so I am not sure whether these new lipsticks and liners have hit the stores where Milani is typically sold such as CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Kmart etc., but they are on the Milani website. And Milani is having a 30% off sale on lipsticks on their website through February 3. So if any of these gorgeous shades strikes your fancy, pick ’em up online now!
