Milani Cosmetics has blessed us make-up lovers and budget mavens with some lovely products this year. One of those products is the Lip Intense Liquid Color. It comes in 4 colors but I was only able to pick up Violet Addict.
I’d describe Violet Addict as more pink than violet. There’s a hint of purple, but not as much as I thought given the name. This may or may not be turn off for you. Personally, I think the color is black girl friendly but I’m bias because I don’t think your complexion automatically means you can’t wear red, purple, or in this case pinky purple.
The formula is very pigmented. It’s applied with a doe wand attached to a twist off cap. There’s no overwhelming smell or terrible taste. Once applied, there’s a nice sheen to it as well.
Since this is liquid lipstick there’s a chance it may look streaky on your lips and settle into your lines. This happened to me, but it wasn’t terribly obvious. If you hate the look on bare lips trying it with the Milani Anti-Feathering Lipliner may help.
It’s worth a shot since the company is recommending it anyway. I happened to have the lipliner and the product went on a lot smoother and wasn’t as streaky.
Overall, my only disappointment with the product is that it’s not a violet as I hoped. I’d definitely recommend this product anyway and I’m pretty sure I’m going to buy the red version. After all, this is Bury Me In Red Lipstick so I have to have the red.
Milani Lip Intense retails for $6.49 and Milani Anti-Feathering Lipliner retails for $4.49. Both are sold online and where Milani Cosmetics are sold.
