Milani Color Perfect Lipstick for Spring 2012 Swatches, Photos & Review
New from Milani this year are eight new additions to their Color Perfect Lipstick range. These will be exclusive to CVS stores and hopefully out soon!
These lipsticks don’t look like that standard ones when you open the top. They are kind of geometric looking. Futuristic! They have a contoured tip for easier application and are super smooth and creamy on the lips. They feel very moisturizing and really comfortable. There is one thing though…
They have a very specific floral scent and taste. Very lipstick-y. So if you have an aversion to scent/taste, these might not be for you.
The eight new shades being introduced are:
- Red Velvet (47)
- Brown Suede (48)
- Plum Deluxe (49)
- Nude Creme (50)
- Pink Passion (51)
- Pink Love (52)
- Barely There (53)
- Red Label (54)
Barely There, Nude Creme, Red Label, Red Velvet, Brown Suede, Plum Deluxe
Barely There is a soft pink/nude creme. Really nice on me, might be my favorite one of these.
Nude Creme is a slightly more brown and warm creme shade than Barely There.
Red Label is a bright medium red creme.
Red Velvet is a deep blue-based red creme.
Brown Suede is a brown sugar color with gold pearl.
Plum Deluxe is a deep brown/plum with red pearl.
Overall: I really love the texture of these lipsticks. They are super smooth, feel really nice on the lips, and have great payoff. The only thing I wasn’t thrilled about was that floral scent/taste.
Availability: Exclusive to CVS.
How important is scent/taste to you in a lipstick? Is it enough to turn you off from purchasing?
