Milani Lip Intense Liquid Color

Hello! I took a few days off last week to refocus my energy and realign myself ( I know, whatever that means…) But, I’m back and I’d like to talk a little about the Milani Lip Intense Liquid Color.

“Satisfy your craving for shockingly intense, super-shiny,full lip color with Lip Intense Liquid Color. Lip Intense applies like a highshine gloss, but has the longevity and wear of a lipstick.  The sponge-tip applicator allows for a fast,easy, and precise application. Paraben-free.” – Milani Cosmetics website

The Lip Intense Liquid Color was launched in January 2014 and the range comprises a total of four shades: Pink Rave, Violet Addict, Fiery Coral, and Red Extreme. I got mine in the Pink Rave shade. Here is a swatch of all the shades taken from Makeup & Beauty Blog

Each lip intense liquid color retails in the US for US$6.49 and can be found in most drugstores. Since we do not have Milani readily available in retail outlets here in Singapore, I got mine via an eBay store and was happy to pay the overpriced shipping rates to try this out. I also got something interesting (also from Milani) in this shipment which I will share in my next post.

Described as a highly pigmented high shine gloss with the longevity of a lipstick, this product comes packaged in an flat, slightly odd-sized tube (resembles the Hour Glass Extreme Sheen High Gloss lip gloss packaging) with gold highlights synonymous with all Milani packaging, containing 0.20 fluid ounces/ 6 mL of product. This liquid lip colour features a thin sponge doe-foot applicator.

My first swatch of these and I was impressed by this super intense, full-coverage liquid lipstick that doesn’t apply patchy or uneven. The flat applicator ensures that colour glides on perfectly and creamily, leaving a glossy look. It feels lightweight and has a silky texture upon application. I love that the product doesn’t settle into my fine lines or enhances the look of my dry, chapped lips. It also has a strange coconut-ey type scent to the product.

P.S – Sorry if my foundation seems lighter than my overall skin tone in this picture – it’s the flash that’s causing the white cast, I can assure you I don’t go out looking like I have mismatched foundation. Anyway, I just wanted to show you the lip colour on me. 🙂

Overall, I like how this feels on my lips although the longevity of the product isn’t outstanding. I took a sip of water and most of my lip colour was left on my mug, leaving behind only a slight sheen with 70% of the colour intensity remaining. I must say that while I like the barely-there feeling when it’s on and the pigmentation of this lip product, I can’t attest for its longevity which also doesn’t really leave much of a stain once it fades. At least not for me. Also, this product tends to bleed when used on its own.

Compared to the L’Oreal Shine Caresse Lip Colours, I think the Milani Lip Intense definitely has slightly more pigmentation but the colour range that L’Oreal has is far more superior. Having said that, I must say that I like this product because it is paraben-free. In general, I think this is a good product and it’s definitely something that would require more care when using it especially because it does bleed a little. Perhaps, for local beauty shoppers here in Singapore, the L’Oreal Shine Caresse Lip Colourwould be a more value-for-money alternative, which I also blogged about recently. Check out the post here.

Have you tried this Milani product before? What are your thoughts?

    Nice review. I do actually have three of these, one of which I actually won in a give away. They are nice though, intense colors for sure!

  2. Keep on writing, great job!
