Milani Color Statement Lipstick Reviews ♡ Nude Creme & Fruit Punch

Milani Color Statement Lipstick: Nude Creme & Fruit Punch

I first heard about these Milani Color Statement Lipsticks via Nicole Guerriero, she raves about them in almost all of her monthly favorites videos! So of course, I had to grab myself two to try.

Milani Color Statement Lipstick is probably a favorite of every makeup hoarders, I see it almost everywhere! These lipsticks are available in 36 shades?! I think ~ Colors ranging from a beautiful nude to a sexy vampy red.

Milani Color Statement Lipsticks has a simple shiny mirror gold packaging, there's a little clear section at the bottom showing the actual color of the lipstick. While I absolutely adore the gold tone tube, I dislike the shiny mirror effect as they hold fingerprints and they reflects back all the things around it when taking pictures. Just use the pictures in this post for an example, these pictures could have come out amazing with the kawaii pink background, but since the shiny mirror tube reflects back the kawaii prints of my photo background, these lipsticks doesn't stand out as much as it should.

Just like any other drugstore lipsticks, these Milani lipsticks doesn't come with any cardboard boxes packaging. When I first received these lipsticks, they were sealed with plastic wraps and all it has on the tube is the beige shade Milani logo, the number and the name of the lipstick printed on the bottom where the clear section is and just a little sticker with a barcode and "Milani, Dist. Los Angeles, CA 90058 Made in USA" stick on one side of the cap.

I always love a lip product that has a fruity smell and these Milani lipsticks smells so yummy! The lipsticks have a strong sweet watermelon smell when you sniff it, or if you just take the cap off, the smell is very strong; but when wearing the lipstick, the smell is not noticeable.

I love how pigmented these lipsticks are, with just one swipe on the lips, you can get an opaque coverage. There are six finish available from this range: vinyl, metallic, cream, shimmer, pearl and matte. I love how smooth these applies on my lips, even when my lips are dry, the texture of these Milani lipsticks feels gel-like and they glides on smoothly.

I often have dry lips and most of the time I would exfoliate and apply lip balms before applying any lipsticks. On days that I forgot to exfoliate, the Milani Color Statement Lipstick still glides on smoothly; but about half an hour wearing time, my lips would start to look very chapped and the lipstick seems to turn into some dry patches. Both Nude Creme & Fruit Punch are Cream finish and compare to other cream finish lipsticks, these aren't hydrating at all.

Nude Creme seems to give my lips that plump lips effect and I love it! I feel like since Nude Creme is a lighter shade, the lipstick doesn't last long for me. It usually wore for one hour for me then it starts to fade and disappear within the next half an hour, imagine how annoying it is having to re-apply every hour of your 8 hours at work?!

As for Fruit Punch, I haven't worn it long enough to judge ~

Milani Color Statement Lipsticks are available to purchase from beautyjoint and they are so affordable! Only USD $5.69 each! I have shopped from Beauty Joint many times in the past and I highly recommend the site, but this time I have purchased the Milani lipsticks from TradeMe, it's a New Zealand version of eBay, cause I'm lazy and impatient lol.

Overall I would recommend these Milani lipsticks to anyone and you should definitely give it a try if you haven't ~ These may not be 5 out of 5 for me, but I still really enjoy using them and I get why everyone loves these so much, it's because these are some very good quality lipsticks for such an affordable price and they are cruelty free and made in the USA.

Are you a fan of the Milani Color Statement Lipsticks?


  1. These are so damn gorgeous! I'm dying to get Nude Creme and another rosy tone nude shade! I can't wait to get my hands on a lippie or two from them!

  2. admire how you do your eyeliner

  4. I've never tried milani lipsticks before because they're not available in Australia :(
    But the nude lipstick is a really nice colour ^_^~


  5. The colours you picked are so cute! I've never tried Milani's stuff before because it's not sold where I'm from :( Really regret not picking up any when I visited in the States!

  6. I haven't tried this brand though your pics have caught my attention. :)

  7. Oh my goodness I've been eyeing these for the longest time now! While the shade selection is definitely on the bolder side, one of the shades I desperately want is 'Flamingo Pose'. I have heard that these were long lasting though, maybe the Nude one disappears quickly because it kinda just blends into your skintone? Well, hopefully Fruit Punch fares a lot better for you!
