NEW Milani Color Perfect Lipstick Shades (Review and Swatches)

More new Milani!

I love the formula of Milani’s Color Perfect Lipstick ($5.49)—creamy with a touch of shine and can last for hours on end (particularly the deeper shades) and my absolute favorite is Berry Rich, a pinkish red that I wore practically everyday for about two months since I first got my hands on it. The range of shades in the Color Perfect Lipstick line is quite impressive, but I could almost never find a drugstore near me that carried the full range (womp womp–the drugstores near me really suck btw). Thankfully you can order online and now six new shades are being added to the collection. Milani sent them over for review consideration.

Red Velvet is a toned down blue-red that can sort of ring towards being a bit brown-red. It’s creamy with a touch of shine and easily glides on the lips. This is a good starter red or a red you can wear to work without looking like “Uh, where are you going?”.

Red Label is a toned down creamy orange-red (orange-reds look best on those with warm or yellow undertones). This is a great summer red, but since it isn’t overly bright, you can also work it into the office.

Nude Creme is a creamy pinky-beige. It’s a great nude for light olive (think Kim Kardashian) to olive (think Salma Hayek) complexions.

Brown Suede is a metallic chocolate brown. It would make a pretty good nude for NW50 and darker skins.

Plum Deluxe is a creamy deep, vampy berry. This type of shade tends to work universally on all skin tones.

Barely There is a creamy beige-pink that would make a great neutral pink on lighter complexions.

Bottom line: Milani Color Perfect Lipstick is worth a look. The shade range is amazing—not to mention the price ($5.49 each). I love a good lipstick, but usually shop for them in the department store because drugstore lipsticks can tend to have that crayon smell. Not these—in fact I couldn’t really detect a scent at all. Definitely worth picking up a tube.

      I know right, I was cracking up b/c after years of wearing nudes and pinks, I started wearing reds again and that was TOTALLY the reaction I got! For some reason, switching to bright lipstick has people thinking that you are getting fancy for some special occasion.

      You know that the people saying that are also thinking “who are you going to see?”

  7. Wow such pretty shades – I love them all, except maybe the Chocolate one, not huge on metallic finishes. But I’m usually so picky about colors, so I’m surprised I like so many of them.
