On my recent weekly trip to CVS I realized I hadn’t tried anything new from Milani in about a year or more! So, I made it a point to check out what they had to offer. They have newly released nail polish and eye shadows, but I also noticed these Power Lip Gloss Stains. (I think they came out sometime in January actually!)
I didn’t want to buy a bunch without knowing how they would be, so I decided on Raspberry Tart, a beautiful cool plum shade.
The Milani Power Lips are described as a 2-in-1 gloss & stain with a non-drying formula. Long lasting shine, stain, and color coverage. Formula cushions lips and provides a comfortable wear. Paraben-free.
The applicator is a twistable paint style brush and the gloss comes out of the middle. It took quite a few turns before product came out, and then it kind of splattered out because of air bubbles. It has become better with continued use though. The applicator is a little stiff for my personal taste, but I do think it allows for more precise application compared to say, Mally’s Liquid Lipsticks which are softer and more bendable.
The formula is very nice, it is thick, opaque and creamy and the amount of stickiness is adequate. There isn’t any scent or taste which is nice if you have aversions to that sort of thing. The glossiness lasted about 4-5 hrs and it left a lovely lilac stain in its place that lasted another 2 hrs.
It is also affordable at $6.49 for .09 oz which is slight smaller than Mally’s Liquid Lipsticks which are $20 for .12 oz. I got mine at CVS and I almost always use some sort of extra bucks deal to get an even better price! It comes in 7 other shades, but I think my store only had 5 total in stock. You can also find them on Drugstore.com and Walgreens. I really enjoyed this and will defiantly consider picking it up in other shades!
Have you tried these Power Lips or do you see any shades that would interest you? What is your favorite product from Milani?
Thanks for reading, enjoy the rest of your day! xo, Kristina
