My experience with Milani Color Statement Lipstick Best Red:

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: This lipstick falls under the matte category of this range. It is though soft and smooth but not as smooth as the crème finish lipsticks of this range. Being a matte lippy it is a bit drying.

Shade and Color pay off: The shade is a true shade of red and I consider it best because all Indian skin tones will pull off this color really well. On pigmentation front the lipstick has a win – win score since it has awesome color pay off which yields in opaque coverage in a single swipe.

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: This is a gorgeous red shade of lipstick or rather just as its name “Best Red”. It compliments my olive skin tone really well and instantly brightens up my face. With just the lippy on it gives a Party ready feel to me.

It has matte finish, but since I do not have very dry lips, the drying tendencies of this lippy did not bother me much. Women with dry lips will need to seek a lip balm application underneath before using this lippy.

The packaging gets full marks, it does its job well in maintaining attraction and at the same time is convenient enough to trace the lipstick among various other lipsticks due to it color revealing packaging.

It stays for some 4-6 hours, and leaves behind a tint when it fades off. This is pretty decent staying power actually.

Overall I have all good things to speak about this lipstick despite of its drying nature, because this is how matte lipsticks behave.
