These lipsticks are creamy, go on nicely pigmented and feel comfortable on your lips.

Average wear for a lipstick; re-apply as needed/as wanted.

Medium to full color. These are very nicely pigmented, and if you apply with a lip brush (or more precisely then I did) you can get great, even, full color!

Milani Color Perfect Lipstick Review:
I think the Milani Color Perfect Lipsticks are a very affordable option for creamy, full coverage lip color. They go on nicely, feel comfortable on your lips, and come in a great range of shades.

If you want to get even better/longer wear from these you can apply your lip balm, then a lip liner to your entire lips (outline first, then fill in), and then finally apply your lipstick directly from the tube or with a lip brush. You can also apply with your finger (I use my pinky) to get sheerer coverage.

Out of the seven shades shown in this post, the shade Nude Creme is my favorite. It's a perfect nude that looks great on its own and paired with a sheer sparkling pink gloss on top! I'd also like to try the shade Pink Love, which is also new but I don't have it (yet).

I found the darker shades (Brown Suede, Plum Deluxe) went on a little uneven, but that can be typical with darker lipstick shades. That's why it's best to apply darker shades with a lip brush to get the best lip look.

Overall, an affordable lipstick that I'd recommend!
