Milani Lip Intense Liquid Color Pink Rave - Swatches and Review






Happy Easter and I hope you're having a wonderful weekend. The weather has been really nice and the birds seem to really enjoy it. I can hear them chirping all day, lol. 
I went to see God's Not Dead yesterday and enjoyed the movie. It's probably not a movie everyone will like but if you are one of those who wonders about the existence of a higher being or have lost some faith, you might like it. 

Otherwise, let's move on to the review. I've had this product in my stash for a few weeks now and finally got around to testing it. 

Packaging
  • I think the packaging looks kinda cool and the shape is different. It's nice that the packaging matches the color inside and it comes with a doe foot applicator.
  • .20 oz or 6 ml


Product
  • Pink Rave is a medium fuchsia with a cream finish. 
  • My first impression when I swatched it was WOW. It is so richly pigmented! Definitely has that liquid lipstick quality to it. 
  • It feels and applies really smoothly on the lips. Another thing I was really pleased with is that it doesn't feel heavy at all. It's lightweight yet really packs a punch in pigmentation. 
  • I didn't find it very moisturizing but it's not drying either. It does feel very comfortable though. 
  • I was able to get 4 hours of wear before it started to fade. I also noticed some bleeding as it was fading. This shade stains a bit and the stain last for a few more hours. 
  • It has a subtle coconut scent to it. 


Final Thought

The smooth, lightweight, and richly pigmented formula was a hit for me, especially for a drugstore product. There are only 4 colors to pick from and I really wished they had more and also included a nude color. Pink Rave would be great for the weekend or parties. It's a bit too bold for the office, which is why it took a while for me to test it out.

  4. Stunning pink shade! I've always loved blue toned fuchsia and hot pinks! I've yet to try or wear any liquid lipsticks in the last few months though, just still afraid that they'd dry my lips out!
