Milani Lip Intense Liquid Color in Fiery Coral

7:41 AM

One of the best things about spring, besides warmer weather and no snow, is being able to wear fun, vibrant colors. For example, this bright pinky coral from Milani.  It just screams spring and summer fun.  And with another winter storm on the way, I am all for that.  In all seriousness, something is really messed up when Atlanta has two ice storms within two weeks.  We usually have a 3-4 year gap.

Fiery Coral is an ultra bright pinky coral with a vinyl finish.

This ranks as one of the more pigmented lip products I have ever tried.  It is classified as a gloss, but I say it is a mesh of a liquid lipstick and a stain.  When first applied on the lips, it is incredibly pigmented and has the vinyl look. It feels very comfortable on.  It is not heavy, thick or goopy.  After about 4-5 hours, it becomes more of a stain and loses some of the intense color.  I actually have a picture that shows how it ends up looking.  There is a slight scent, but it nowhere near the intensity of their Color Statement Lipsticks.  It is not as sweet or fruity, but it is something to be mindful of if you do not like scents. Although it fades quickly.  Towards the end of wear, it did make my lips feel a little dried out.  But it was not too uncomfortable and that is really the only drawback of the product.

and after about 7 hours.

The applicator is rather nice, too.  It is a soft sponge applicator that is a few steps above what most inexpensive brands put with their lip products.  But, the handle complicates things a little. Since it is short (and I have long fingers), it was a little awkward to hold while applying. The color of the packaging matches the actual lip color, which is always handy when fumbling around in your makeup bag.  It also has a gold top, which also makes it easier to locate.
All in all, this is a nice, budget friendly lippie.  It packs one heck of a punch with pigment and is long lasting, too.
