Most of you probably already know about Milani's new Color Statement Lipstick line, but let me tell you about it anyway ;)
Here's what Milani has to say about the line:
I had a 20% off coupon for CVS, so I decided to go ahead and pick up one of the Color Statement lipsticks in #12, Flamingo Pose. Cora at VintageOrTacky used it in one of her recent tutorials and I thought it looked perfect for spring.Make a statement without saying a word! True Instant Color. One stroke, full coverage application. This next generation lipstick gives the ultimate in color, texture and finish. The lightweight creamy formula contains Vitamins A, C, & E to moisturize and nourish lips. Paraben-free. Available in Vinyl, Metallic, Cream, Shimmer, Pearl & Matte finish.
Milani describes the color as flamingo coral cream. That is a pretty apt description. It's definitely a coral lipstick, but it's a cool coral, so it doesn't look orange on the lips. It is incredibly pigmented. It is totally opaque in one swipe and it stains like crazy.
The formula is on the thicker, stiffer side, but I didn't find it uncomfortable to wear. As I said, it does stain the lips, so the wear time is extended. I got six hours out of it before it started looking really gnarly.
