Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Uptown Mauve

Hey all beauty geeks!!!  I am a self-proclaimed lipstick hoarder. I love almost every color in a lipstick, however, pinks and purples are my weakness. So are reds and corals. πŸ˜‰ Ok lets put it that I love all bright colored lipsticks. But somehow, even though I love purples, the lipsticks in plum or purple shades either go goth on me or make me look dull. I do love gothy lipsticks for fall season, but how I wished atleast one purple shade could brighten my face. You have guessed it by now!!! This lipstick does that and so much more πŸ™‚

My take on Milani Color Statement Lipstick 20 Uptown Mauve:

Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Uptown Mauve belongs to the family of Plums & Berries.  It is a violet mauve with a cream finish. It looks more pink on the lips than on the tube. And this is why this color looks gorgeous on the lips. It instantly gives a glow to the face which lot of purples & mauves lack. It is brighter and pink-ier version of MAC Rebel.

Texture: The lipstick is insanely creamy in texture. Looks so comfortable on my lips. Does not dry the lips or emphasize any lines.

Pigmentation: Highly pigmented color in just one swipe.  The color can be build up without looking cakey.

Staying Power: Stays put for 4-5 hours and leaves behind a pretty bright stain.

Packaging: The lipstick comes in a shiny gold tube with a mirror finish. The bottom of the lipstick carries the color of the lipstick.

Smell: Has a wonderful watermelon smell πŸ™‚
