Currently Loving: Milani 3D Glitzy Glamour Gloss

When I first spied these Milani lippies, I figured they were just another collection of chunky, glittery glosses that I wouldn’t find very wearable…and I guess it’s true that you can’t judge a book by it’s cover (or a lip gloss by it’s tube for that matter).  Imagine my surprise when Milani 3D Glitzy Glamour Gloss ended up pretty much rocking my world, it was true love at first swipe!  Believe it or not, I actually dig it when I’m wrong about things like this.  I guess it would help if I told you what I found so awesome about them, right?

• Beautiful twinkle!  Almost like I had thousands of little stars on my lips

• Enormous amount of shine with a glass-like finish

• Smooth texture, not sticky or tacky at all

Of the seven available shades, I checked out In Vogue and Starshine:

As far as color saturation goes, some of the shades are more pigmented than others–as evidenced by the contrast of Starshine versus In Vogue.  Here’s the shade breakdown:

Movie Star — Ultra violet with iridescent sparkles (looks blue in tube)
Fashion Diva — Hot pink with purple & pink sparkles
Starshine — Purple with pink & iridescent sparkles
Stylish — Orange with copper & gold sparkles
Designer Label — Nude peach with pink & gold sparkles
In Vogue — Red with pink sparkles
Leading Lady — Rose-berry with pink & gold sparkles

Typically, this might not be your everyday lippie of choice–especially for an office setting.  But these are super fun to amp up boring glosses and lipsticks without the MAC Dazzleglass price since these go for about $6.99.  (I’ve spotted them at CVS on sale too.)  I didn’t detect any flavor but I did think the scent was pretty pleasant, it was a little on the vanilla side.  I was especially impressed that these glosses didn’t have one trace of a gritty texture for being so glitzy as the particles are extremely fine.  Have you tried out any of these shades of Milani 3D Glitzy Glamour Gloss?  Do tell!

    Gah!! As if I needed further proof that these are gorgeous! I neeed a few of these, but I just wish they came w/ safety seals because every time I go to a CVS, it always looks like the ones left in the displays (and there are not many left in the displays since they seem very popular) all look like they have already been opened and tested. You are so lucky to have found these–they look stunning on you! :)

    R! I know! It irritates me to NO end that people are inconsiderate enough in the first place to open live product (GAH!), but also that most brands don’t use safety seals for products that are open stock or not in some sort of packaging to prevent it. It would cut down on so much damaged stock too! I know this completely defeats the purpose of saving some cash–but if you think you can’t live without them, maybe you can order them from either the CVS site or Milani’s? I’m totally with you, I hope they hear our cries!
