Your Lips Will Shine For Hours With Milani Cosmetics Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss

I Bought It

By Sheila Arkee

Lip gloss lover alert! You need to get your hands on Milani Cosmetics Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss, because it’s pretty much lip perfection.

Milani Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss Sweet Grapefruit and Ravish Raspberry 1

The Brilliant Shine glosses are brand new, but I’ve located them in the permanent Milani display already. They are $5 worth of fabulous, with 14 shimmer-free shades to choose from.

I purchased Sweet Grapefruit and Ravish Raspberry. Both gorgeous shades that are full of shine, come with a doe-foot applicator, are low on that dreaded tacky feeling, and will last on your lips forever and a day. Or until you need to eat.

As a fast and true devotee of lip gloss, I’ve devoted a certain palette of preferences through the years. If the gloss is too sticky, I’ll reject it, and likewise if it’s too slippery. Like the Goldilocks of glosses, I’ll keep looking for those that are just right, with the perfect long-wearing texture that adds lots of shine and moisture. Brilliant Shine fits the bill and then some – I’ll be nabbing more of these great glosses!

My Final Thoughts: Drugstore cosmetics have come a long, long way in recent years, and it’s exciting to see how low priced products are becoming more and more on par with higher end brands. Milani has really hit the mark with their line in general, and especially with some of their newest products, like Brilliant Shine.

    I also hate tacky or slippery glosses! Ravish Raspberry is a gorgeous color. I’ll keep my eyes peeled for these!

    Love Ravish Raspberry and I’m so with you I need the “perfect” lipgloss at all times. I tend to go with shimmer though both of these look so nice!

    And my wishlist now officially expanded with one more product :) Sweet Grapefruit shall be mine!

    Those are really pretty! At first, I was all about the Raspberry one, but now I like the grapefruit one, too. You take great lippie pix!

    Both are gorgeous on you, Sheila. Wish I could wear the lighter one, but I’d look dead. I’ll be picking up the Ravishing Raspberry at http://www.milanicosmetics.com (because my local drug store chains have zilch when it comes to Milani).

    I’m ill that Milani is not as readily available in Denver as I had in Florida. Alas, it is online ordering. But, I gotta have!!!

    Your lip swatches are divine. I’m going to need that Raspberry.

    I saw a red one on Temptalia and am totally lusting after it. I love the colors you showed too. We have no CVC here though. Are these at Kmart? Our Kmart has a small selection but it’s not super close to me.

    I go through phases, I used to be a lipgloss junkie and now I’m a total lipstick-obsessed woman.I like both shades you had on, very pretty!
