Milani Color Statement Lipsticks: Plums/Berries and Naturals/Browns

Affiliate Link Press Sample

I will fully admit to getting giddy every time one of these press sample packages arrives in the mail! Not only because I have come to expect the amazing Milani lipstick quality from the new Color Statement Collection, but also because of the cutesy little lip-shaped makeup bags!  These little bags are perfect for my storage of this collection. Normally, I store lipsticks standing up in a divider in the flip top of my vanity. However, my Milani Color Statement Collection has a special place in my IKEA Alex 9-drawer unit. The cute little lipstick bags are just the right height to be stored standing up with the coordinating lipsticks housed inside. This is not only a space saver, but also it allows for ease in finding the right shade of lipstick when I get ready. If I am in the mood for a natural look, I grab my Naturals & Browns bag. A bold pop of color for the evening: I reach for the Reds & Oranges. You get the idea! :) Instead of just reaching for the same color all the time, I kinda turn it into a game by just reaching inside the colorful lippie bag and seeing what I pull out. LOL, I know, I am a nut (but it is fun I tell ya!). Sure, there are some colors that I really don't want to wear all the time (but hey, at least I am stepping out of my comfort zone and trying them out!). :)

Have you seen the NEW Milani Color Statement Lipsticks? So far, I have reviewed the Reds & Oranges and the Pinks & Corals. Today we finish up the collection of Milani Color Statement Lipsticks with my final review in this series: the Plums & Berries and the Naturals & Browns. There is no question, I have completely fallen in love with the formula, pigmentation, selection, and packaging of these amazing lippies! The color is just so saturated!!!

I am excited about these two color collections. While shades of Plum & Berry may scare some, with my neutral-cool coloring, I find that these types of shade are extremely flattering on me. As far as the Naturals & Browns, these shades are just so "wearable" for everyday!

Color Statement Collection from Milani: The Full Collection (at a glance):

The new Color Statement Collection from Milani contains 30 lipsticks and 8 lip liners. The Lipsticks are categorized into 4 distinct color families: The Reds & Oranges, the Pinks & Corals, the Plums & Berries, and the Naturals & Browns.


Milani's Color Statement Lipsticks and Liners
The Lipstick Formula:
This next generation lipstick gives the ultimate in color, texture and finish.  The lightweight creamy formula contains Vitamins A, C, & E to moisturize and nourish lips. 

I think the biggest standout characterisic, across the board, with this collection is the lipstick's amazing pigmentation.  I am completely impressed with how one swipe of any Color Statement gives you full coverage in one coat!!! Plus, these lipsticks are long wearing and extremely vivid. Seriously, I might have found a new drugstore favorite for lipsticks (or at least a tie with Revlon!).

Color Statement Lipliner:
Satin color in one stroke application. This next generation lipliner is a long-wearing, easy-glide formula to line & fill-in your lips. Paraben-free.

I just love how creamy and smooth these liners are! Actually, it makes me realize that most of my other lip liners in my makeup collection are actually on the dry and waxy side. I just love the way these apply! So smooth and pigmented!!! Like the lipsticks, you get full coverage in one sweep!
