Today I’m going to write a review about the Milani’s Color Statement Lipstick – shade 14 ‘Rose Hip’. I picked this up along with shade 01 Sweet Nectar. Actually this is the color that my boyfriend picked for me when I couldn’t decided in between Milanis’ several pink shades. I would say I have quite a few pink shades already but not as many as other people who has a big collection of lipsticks. I really wanted to get all the pink shades from Milani, however, I knew there’s no way I am going to love and use them all equally and probably some of them will end up in the corner of the drawer and never see the light again.
The packaging is kind of effective when it comes to stacking or arranging by colors since it already shows the actual colors on the bottom of the lipstick. In my opinion, even this lipstick is low priced, it doesn’t look so low-grade compare to other affordable lipsticks. I quite like its plain-basic looking.
The color of this lipstick is very much – hot pink. It is very strong, bold and vibrant. It’s not too shimmery nor matte. Just perfect cream lipstick. I don’t know if i would wear this on regular basis since it’s really bright hot pink. I would recommend it to a party look. If I am going to a fancy restaurant, I probably go with lighter tone downed pinks or brown-ish pink.
I was quite surprised by this shade’s staying power. Previously, I reviewed the shade 01 Sweet Nectar and mentioned that Sweet Nectar doesn’t stay long enough and smudged easily. Well, I don’t know why but this color, which is Rose Hip, seems like having a better staying power and doesn’t smudged much than the previous color I reviewed. Rose Hip stayed long enough to be against on Mac’s Viva Glam Nicki. Of course Mac lipstick was little bit better but with compared to its low-price, it’s pretty good isn’t it? I am very satisfied with it so far.
