Milani Lip Intense Liquid Lip Colors

If you have been keeping up with me on YouTube, you know that Milani has tons of new products out for 2014! I was thrilled when Milani decided to send me their full line of new makeup, but the Lip Intense Liquid Lip Colors definitely stood out to me the most. I started testing them right away, and after three weeks of constant use, let me tell you...


They are fabulous. 



There are 4 shades total: Pink Rave, Violet Addict, Fiery Coral, and Red Extreme.


The tubes are a bit peculiar, the shape is just odd to me, but it's what inside that counts! These lippies are full of silky pigment that glide on effortlessly!


Swatches from top to bottom: Pink Rave, Violet Addict, Red Extreme, and Fiery Coral.
Pink Rave is a bright medium pink, Violet Addict is a bright pinky- violet, Red Extreme is a bright, blue toned red, and Fiery Coral is a bright cool toned pinkish-coral.


Claims: "Satisfy your craving for shockingly intense, super-shiny,full lip color with Lip Intense Liquid Color. Lip Intense applies like a highshine gloss, but has the longevity and wear of a lipstick.  The sponge-tip applicator allows for a fast,easy, and precise application. Paraben-free."
Pigmentation: One swipe gives full color, a little goes a long way! I'm amazed at how pigmented these are, the swatches show it all.
Finish/Texture: The finish on these reminds me of satin. It's not exactly matte, but it does have a hint of shine. The texture is very creamy, like a NYX matte lip cream but silkier.
Lasting Power:  I had 4-5 hours of wear on these before I needed a touch up. They do stain the lips, but not in a pretty way, expect to reapply these throughout the day.
Scent: These have a strong Cheesecake scent to them. I know that's really specific, but every time I smell these it just reminds me of cheesecake frosting. Haha!
Packaging: Like I said before, I don't think the packaging is pretty. I like the bright colors, but the shape is just outdated to me. 
Price/Availability: I didn't buy these personally, Milani sent me them in consideration for review. The only place I have spotted these right now is at  Walgreens for $6.50.

Likes:
  • Great pigmentation
  • Bright, stunning colors
  • Creamy texture
  • Satin finish
  • Inexpensive

Dislikes:
  • Scent is ok, it does fade quickly
  • Lasting power isn't the best, touch ups needed
  • The packaging is a bit tacky

Overall:
I would definitely call these a lip cream, it's like a cross between a creamy lipstick and a gloss. I'm so impressed by the light, silky texture, and the intense color that these have! 

Although I'm over the moon about these lip creams, I must say that they don't have the best longevity. They claim to last 'like a lipstick', but I only had 4-5 hours of wear before these faded badly. They leave behind a funky stain, the ring-around-the-mouth kind, so reapplying is key. It's not surprising, since the texture is so light and silky.

If you're looking for something bright and unique, these are for you!  I already want more shades to choose from! Will you be trying the new Milani Lip Intense Lip Colors?
