Lipstick -MILANI -Bold Color Statement Matte Lipstick

on 2/20/2019 6:52:00 PM


My review is for the shade "I am Strong," which is a deep burgundy.

I agree with pretty much everything that GlitterandGraveyards said. In fact, I'd have given this lipstick a five if not for a slight tendency toward patchiness. That may be pretty much unavoidable in a color this dark, though, and it isn't a deal-breaker for me.

I chose this lipstick primarily for its color - I wanted a deep burgundy/wine with red undertones, and this works fine. It's fairly smooth and comfortable, especially for a matte. It wears well, too, though I find that even a drop of gloss on top will break the color down. This can be remedied, though, and wear extended dramatically, if you layer I am Strong under a similarly-colored stain, like Silk Naturals' Vamp.

Cruelty-free, reasonably-priced Milani has become pretty much my go-to brand for lip products, and goodies like this one are a strong reason why. I'm looking at other shades in the Bold Color Statement line.

Bronzers -MILANI -Silky Matte Bronzing Powder

on 2/19/2019 5:23:00 PM


I love this bronzer! I’m very fair so bronzers scare me lol. I chose the middle shade because the undertone looked more neutral and I thought that would be more flattering. It adds just the right amount of warmth to my face and looks really smooth. It has good lasting power too. I prefer to use a little at a time and slowly build it up. Like others have mentioned, it has a coconut scent but it is slowly dissipating from the product.

Primer/ Corrector -MILANI -Make It Last Setting Spray Prime + Correct + Set

on 2/19/2019 4:45:00 PM


My favorite setting spray pixi rose setting mist and I noticed this had a few similar ingredients. This is a good alternative! Makes my makeup last and has a good mist. There is a fragrance, but not too strong. This is a new favorite! I was running low and bought a back up. I don’t set my whole face with powder and rely on setting spray to keep my dewy foundations in place.

Primer/ Corrector -MILANI -Prime Correct Face Primer

on 2/19/2019 3:19:00 AM


This review is for the orange primer aimed at medium to dark skin tones. For context I am in the shade 177 or cognac in makeup forever and shade 355 coconut in maybelline fit me foundation.

Im no makeup guru so i picked thia us at walmart because it was cheap. About 8.17 total. I bought this to help with some hyper pigmentation and dark spots on my face to wear under my foundation. I shook the bottle a bit as directed by the instructions on the cap and applied it to my face after my primer.

The good: goes on lightly with a non heavy or greasy feeling. Cheap as it only cost me under 10$ for 0.85 oz or 25 ml. No strong smell either but it does have a scent to it so I wouldnt call it unscented. It also comes out very easy since its packaged in a upside down squeeze bottle with a very narrow tip so too much doesn't come out at once.

The bad: it goes on WAY too sheer to be effective. My skin is considered medium deep/deep depending on the company producing the makeup but its not impossible to find a shade + undertone to match me. It looks like a cream based gel almost upon squeezing it out. Has a medium orange color. But when you rub it in (i use my clean fingers to apply) or blend it out it fades to quickly to actually blurr or hide any darkness. My dark spots are not that bad and neither is the hyper pigmentation and this stuff covered nothing unless it put on quiet a bit. Its just not pigmented enough to work for me and I doubt anyone else who is even close to my shade.

I wouldn't repurchase this stuff unless they changed the formula and gave the orange one more pigment to actually cover anything.

Blush -MILANI -Baked Blush - Luminoso

on 2/16/2019 1:42:00 PM


The peachy shade is flattering, but the gold shimmer is a little too much. It's very pretty in the pan and when swatched, but applied to the cheeks the gold turns a little more glittery and less glowy. It's a little bit chalky too, feels pretty cheap (which it's sort of is to be fair). Pigmented but not the most longwearing. But it's a pretty blush if you're looking for a warm blush/highlighter combo type of product.

The packaging is a bit bulky since it contains a hidden mirror and a flat brush underneath the pan. The mirror is a nice touch, but the brush is pretty useless.
