So on a recent trip to Dollar Tree, I found the whole Lip Intense collection from Milani that I had always wanted to try, but never did. Being orig. priced at $6.49, I didn’t want to buy it and end up regretting it. I believe these came out last year and there are only 4 shades in the line.
Website description: Weightless, bold colour –si, you really can have it all. This high-drama dazzler is infused with pure pigments, yet feels utterly light and airy.
Packaging: This comes in a lightweight plastic tube with their signature gold packaging. It’s actually a pretty small tube and so perfect to throw in a purse.
Application: The consistency is very creamy, smooth and pretty thick. It reminds me of the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams, never fully drying, yet matte in color-perfect for people who want that look without the drying of the lips. I found that when I apply these, then blot once, it takes away the slight shininess these have and some of the thickness, which makes it more comfortable to wear.
Same order as top left-right
Colors & Wear Time: The colors are all very intense with the most being 03 Fiery Coral being more of a highlighter bright pink (way brighter than the pic above). Actually the must subtle of them all is 04 Violet Addiction being more of a pretty orchid color. These will transfer a bit, but do leave a stain behind that lasted through eating and drinking.
🌹Overall these are a great alternative to the extremely drying matte lipsticks out there. All this line needs is some mauve-y and brown colors. Is it worth it? For me, I don’t really mind the dry matte lipsticks, but if you want something more creamier these will be great for you.
Thanks for reading!
