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