Metallic liquid lipsticks! Milani Amore Mattallics vs Wet n Wild Metallic

I think we’re officially done with matte lips! Yes, it’s been a huge trend, but cosmetics companies are slowing coming out with something else: metallic liquid lipsticks. Metallic lipstick isn’t anything new (hello 90s!), but we are currently seeing more and more shiny lips as supposed to matte ones. I’m not mad at it though: matte lipsticks can be very drying and hard to apply. Metallic lip products go on more smooth, are more moisturizing and give your lips volume. So far, I’ve tried two brands of metallic lips: Wet n Wild and Milani. Below are my findings, including pictures...

Review: Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme, limited edition liquid-to-matte lipsticks

Hi everyone! In my August beauty favorites the other day, I mentioned Milani’s Amore Matte Lip Creme in the shade ‘Embrace’ (a deep reddish plum) as one of the beauty items I’ve been using a lot lately.

How I did my makeup today (using Milani’s new Fierce Foil Eyeshines)

​​ There’s still time to enter my giveaway! Click here. Today I used my new Milani palette that I showed you yesterday, the Fierce Foil Eyeshine. 🙂 Click here if you missed that blog post. I actually couldn’t wait to try it on my eyes! But I have to say: my first impression wasn’t the best. Granted, this was my first time using it and I had never used ‘foil’ eye shadows before… what do you think? ​​ If you don’t know what foil shadows are: these are creamy shadows that will apply just like if you applied them with...

My Milani Cosmetics Cyber Monday purchases

Remember when I mentioned Milani Cosmetics‘ big sale for Cyber Monday? They were offering 50% off and free shipping. Pretty sweet deal, if you ask me! 😀 I didn’t go overboard though, I only got 4 items. I ordered 4 of their Baked Blushes. I thought it would take Milani a while to process my order (because of the large amount of orders they received on Cyber Monday), but nope…I received my package within one week. I’m not a big fan of the gold, but check out the pretty colors! 🙂 04 Terra Sole 07 Fantastico Mauve 09 Red Vino...

Beauty bargain: 50% off Milani products

My favorite drugstore brand is Milani Cosmetics (my runner ups are Revlon and Wet n Wild). I think Milani has some great, inexpensive products. I’ve recently posted swatches of my favorite Crystal Glosses. You can find those here. In this past year(s) I’ve mentioned Milani quite a bit on this site. Definitely for a reason. 🙂 Right now there’s a code on the Milani website that gives you 50% off limited edition and discontinued products in ‘The Closet’. I’m not sure if these products will disappear all together or if they’re coming back in new packaging. But either way, they’re...

Milani Crystal Gloss for lips (swatches)

I was asked to provide swatches of my beloved Milani lip glosses, which of course I was happy to do! My favorite lip gloss by Milani is by far ‘Serendipity’, cause it’s an exact dupe of my all time favorite lip glass by MAC, called ‘Oh Baby’. In the packaging these glosses don’t look that similar, but on my lips…..it’s an exact dupe! The texture and smell are exactly the same as well. And not only is Serendipity widely available in US drugstores, it’s A LOT cheaper than the MAC version (MAC: $14.00, Milani: $4.49). Anyway, I digress. Here are...
