Milani Color Statement Lipstick Sweet Nectar
Just as promised, I am here with the review of Milani Color Statement Lipstick. Among all the other colors, I have chosen my favorite shade, Sweet Nectar to review first.
You all must have seen the video where I showed of all my milani lipsticks and described them a bit, for those who missed it, might see the video here.
I have liked these lipsticks so much so that I got them through my friend from abroad considering their unavailability in India. So you know these lipsticks have actually come from very far and they definitely need fare well.
Read on to know, if the lipstick fared well:

Packaging: Milani Color Statement Lipstick comes in a metallic golden tube with a shiny mirror finish. The color of the lipstick is indicated at the bottom of the tube with a transparent base showing of the color and has the name of the lipstick imprinted on it. To me the packaging of the lipstick has a Royal appeal which I absolutely adore.
Texture: The lipstick has a soft and creamy texture and glides on smoothly on lip. This lipstick leaves some sheen on the lips. The lipstick is very hydrating and makes lip feel very comfortable.
Shade and Color pay off: The shade Sweet Nectar is a bright orange shade which is quite pigmented and has a beautiful finish with very light sheen. The shade is not too vibrant or tangy and is really going to lure orange shade lovers. This will suit all the skin tones including the olive skin tones as well and will compliment the look just by brightening the face with this shade on the pout.
Though the lipstick has opaque color pay off in a single swipe, but one might need multiple swipes so as to get even- non patchy application.
Fragrance: It has a Fruity fragrance which reminds of fresh water melons. I love the fragrance, but Sensitive noses and people who do not like fruity smells, might find it a little bothering.
My take: As I said the color is perfect for all orange shades lovers and will compliment all skin tones.
The packaging gets full marks, it does its job well in maintain attraction and at the same time is convenient enough to trace the lipstick among various other lipsticks due to it color revealing packaging. The texture too is a bliss, specially because of its creamy texture and hydrating feel. It does not dry out lips, and keeps them hydrated. While the creamy texture goes well in winter season but during summers the lippy may bleed, and one may need to use lip liner.
It stays intact for some 3-4 hours and post this a touch up might be required. When it fades off, it leaves behind a nice tint.
Overall I am pretty much happy with this lipstick and might even try out some other shades from this range, but it’s all gonna be possible only if a friend of mine gets more of them to me or suddenly with a snap of magic these get available in India.
