Milani Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss

The Milani Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss gets my vote for the best product to come out of the drugstore this Spring! This line of high shine lip glosses come in 14 shades, from nude to deep berry. The formula is thick and clings to lips, giving it a bit more lasting power than normal gloss. It’s sticky, but not as much so as MAC Lipglass. The formula feels moisturizing and is great on my dry lips. The deeper shades that I have (Ravish Raspberry and Mauve Fetish) are pigmented enough to leave a stain after the gloss has faded. These vanilla scented beauties are $5.49 for a .21oz tube at retailers.

The shades I have (pictured top to bottom)
Luminous – peachy gloss with gold sparkle
Sweet Grapefruit – Coral Pink cream
Ravish Raspberry – Raspberry cream
Mauve Fetish – Mauve with gold shimmer

    Milani Power Lip Lasting & Moisturizing Gloss Stain Review

    Milanigloss.jpg
    Milani products are some of the best in the drugstore. I love the new Brilliant Shine lipgloss, and their lipsticks are fabulous too! I wanted to love the new Milani Power Lip Lasting & Moisturizing Gloss Stains. They are glossy and pigmented, with a gorgeous selection of colors. The packaging is small, just a bit larger than a lip balm. They have a brush tip applicator that you click to get the product out. I tested Macaroon (medium pink cream) and Cabaret Blend (deep berry cream). The colors are lovely, application is easy and they are beautiful and glossy. The let down for me, is that they make my already dry lips, even drier.
    I tried putting a balm under the Gloss Stain, which didn’t seem to help. While they didn’t work out for me, I know the new Milani Gloss Stains are very popular. You will probably see these glosses on the blog sale page soon!
    Do you have any Milani favorites?
