Milani Lip Intense Liquid Color Review and Swatches

Milani Cosmetics recently released new lip products, one of which is the New Lip Intense Liquid Color. 

Claims
Satisfy your craving for shockingly intense, super-shiny,full lip color with Lip Intense Liquid Color. Lip Intense applies like a highshine gloss, but has the longevity and wear of a lipstick.  The sponge-tip applicator allows for a fast,easy, and precise application. Paraben-free.

A lip product with full color?! Well you know I was all over these! :D

I initially just bought the three which you see above, but then thought what the hell I need the full collection so I bought Fiery Coral, below!

Flash
The full collection consists of only the four shades in (L to R) Red Extreme, Pink Rave, Fiery Coral, and Violet Addict. 
Natural light 

First off the packaging is a little misleading. When I saw photos of these I assumed the color of the packaging was the color of the product shown through clear packaging, when in fact the packaging color is just representative of the shade. I kinda thought it was packaged in like a Lancome Juicy Tube or MAC lip gellee type of soft clear plastic. It is not in a clear soft tube is basically what I'm saying lol. I have no issues with it though. 

It has a sponge/doefoot applicator, which I know some people have a preference for brush tip, but I don't mind either way. 

They do have a light sweet vanilla cupcake like scent. I love it! 

Ok as you can see the color payoff is amazing! Although on my lips Pink Rave and Violet Extreme don't come across as bright as they do when swatched on my hand, which is a bit disappointing but they are still beautiful nonetheless. 

The wear time on these is phenomenal. I have been wearing these all week and all of them last all day, maybe six + hours. They do transfer, but lasted through eating and drinking. They will fade by the end of the day but they fade evenly, at least on me. They wear more like a lipstick than a gloss. 

I honestly love these and definitely recommend that you pick a couple up! I hope they bring out more colors. A juicy orange/peachy shade for summer would be awesome! I'm so happy to see drugstore makeup improve over the years. I wish it would have been this good back when I was in high school! Lol! 

These are $6.49 each which is affordable for everyone. Currently they are buy one get one half off at CVS. 

You can find them at CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, or wherever Milani is sold near you. You can also get them from http://www.milanicosmetics.com/ .

The Milani Lip Intense colors are very new and many people are having a hard time finding them currently, so I wanted to do something sweet for all of you! I am giving away all four shades brand new on my Instagram!

Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow Palette ~ The True Romantic, Review and Swatches


I thought I'd change it up a bit and post an eyeshadow review for you. Don't worry I have more lip product reviews coming up. Lol

Anyways, I purchased a new eyeshadow quad/palette from bare minerals a couple weeks ago and wanted to share my thoughts. 

I first tried the bare minerals ready line last year and fell in love with it. I purchased a kit from QVC a few months ago and it just reaffirmed my love, so when I saw a new collection at Ulta I just had to check it out. I ended up picking up the True Romantic eye shadow quad.

The packaging is very beautiful in a rose gold colored case. It's very shiny though, so fingerprints on it are inevitable! 

Top - L to R 
Love It, Woo Is Me
Bottom - Louder, and Head over Heels.

L to R 
Love it, Woo is me, Louder, and Head over heels. 

Love It is a white/minty green color. It has a bit of shimmer but it's not glittery. 

Woo is me is such a pretty color! This one is like a light gold with pink duo chrome finish. You can see in the photos above the first photo it just looks gold but in the second picture you can see the pink finish. 

Louder is a warm gold. It's very pretty. I love this color all over the lid. 

Head Over Heels is a dark taupe-y brown. This is great to darken the outer corner, use to create a smokey eye, or even use as an eye liner. 

All of these are highly pigmented and blend easily. They can be a bit powdery but regardless they are easy to use, just tap off any excess product on your brush. 

I have no problems with fading or creasing when used with a good eye shadow primer. I love urban decay primer potion in Eden. 

The True Romantic is a great everyday color palette that can be worn to school, office, or even the grocery store. You can definitely get glam and smoke it up with the darker color though, so it's a very versatile palette. 

You can find this at your nearest Ulta or Ulta.com for $30.
