Milani Power Lip Mango Tango - Review and Swatches

TGTIF (Thank God Tomorrow Is Friday, lol)!!! Looking forward to the weekend of course. It's my favorite days of the week. I just got back from Sephora, didn't really get what I wanted but got something I needed. Boo! I guess I'll look on the website.

I picked up this Milani lippie a couple weeks ago while I was shopping at Wal-Mart. I was actually surprised they had them in stock. I can't find these at CVS or Walgreens in my area yet.

  • It comes in a pen like packaging with coordinating shade to match the lip color. You need to twist in order to dispense the product. The first time I had to do that it look like 20 something clicks before the product started peaking out of the brush applicator.
  • The brush applicator is nice I think. It's very precise, not too big or too small. 
  • I find the pen a little short. It would have been easier to handle if it was a bit longer. It is just a bit taller than a MAC lipstick.
  • .09 oz or 2.5 g

  • Mango Tango is a lovely warm coral pink shade, no shimmers. I am totally digging this shade. It's bright but looks very flattering on my skin tone I think.
  • As you can tell from the swatch it is super pigmented and opaque and has a nice shine to it.
  • The color applied evenly. The gloss is a little thick but overall comfortable and non sticky
  • I didn't find it very moisturizing so I would recommend you use a good lip balm before use.
  • I get about 4 hours of wear before the top layer starts to fade. This also has a pretty good staining power that remains on the lips for an additional 4 more hours.
  • it has a very subtle sweet scent. 

Final Thought

This lip product is a combination of liquid lipstick, gloss, and stain all in one. It applies evenly and has a pretty strong staying power due to the staining ability. My only complaint is that I didn't find it very moisturizing and that the pen is a little short for handling and twisting

  1. I can't wait for the weekend either! That lip product is so cute and little! But I can see the dilemma with it being difficult to apply because of its size, but it is a very lovely color on you! Would you happen to know how many colors they had?

    1. According to Milani's website, there is 8 colors available. You just need to have a better grip when twisting the product out otherwise, it's not too bad.

  2. Such a gorgeous shade! It's coral but not so orange that I would be scared to try it! Sounds awesome, looks awesome and I'd love this in something more berry like!

    1. It's pretty bright in normal day light but so pretty.

  3. That is a gorgeous color on you! I too am surprised they made it that size. You always find the best stuff! :)

    1. I was surprised too. I thought this was going to be much bigger.

  4. Its looks very pretty on you dear. Love the color <3 I also have got this one. :-)

  5. Wow, what a gorgeous shade! Looks great on you!

    1. Thanks. I'm debating if I should get a couple more. Maybe when I can get it on sale.
