Lately I’ve been on a huge lip product kick, feeling the need to enhance my collection with the new, shiny, and bright lipsticks, glosses, and stains. When I came across the new Power Lip by Milani Cosmetics at CVS, I couldn’t resist picking up Pink Lemonade.
Hot pink is my color these days, and after years of fully embracing the nude J. Lo/Kim K. lip, no one is more surprised than me!
Milani has released quite a few new products recently, including the Power Lip range of 8 lasting and moisturizing 2-in-1 gloss stains. According to Milani, Power Lip offers long lasting shine, stain, and color coverage that will not dry out lips. I have to say they’re right on all counts. Dang, this is a heck of a lip color!
While I favor doe-foot applicators and am slightly annoyed by click brushes that you have to keep twisting in order for color to come up, Power Lip offers some serious color and coverage!
I’m really impressed by the longevity and find that long after the gloss has worn off (with eating, talking, living life), you’re left with a beautiful stain that does not look patchy at all. Slick some lip balm over it and you have a more toned down look.
My Final Thoughts: As a long time fan of Milani’s high quality products that won’t break the bank, I have to add Milani Cosmetics Power Lip to my list of favorites. If you’re looking for a way to spruce up your lip collection for Spring, swing by your local drugstore to see if this is in stock. It might be a wild goose chase, but Power Lip is also available online.
Availability: You can find these at mass market retailers or milanicosmetics.com
