Giiiiiirl, Milani has some new lipsticks and I am swooning! Their lippies have gone through quite the makeover. From the packaging to the formula, everything about these new lipsticks is spectacular. I’m going to be reviewing all of the color families but first up are the ever so sexy oranges and reds…
Best Red is a true red matte and although that’s Milani’s description, it didn’t appear to be TOO matte for me. I’m not complaining though. It’s stunning and is definitely one of my favorites in the bunch.
Cherry Crave is a red pearl metallic that has a gorgeous amount of shimmer. It definitely has the most shimmer than any of the other lipsticks.
High Voltage is a red orange vinyl and colors like these don’t compliment me best but it’s pretty nonetheless.
Orange Gina is an orange bronze-y pearl. The finish is frosty and I’m not a fan but the shade is a bit off-putting on me too.
Red Label is a bright red cream is a fantastic red. It is my absolute favorite because it’s blue-toned and just woooonderful. I also found it to be the most moisturizing.
Ruby Valentine is a deeper red vinyl. It’s my second favorite red in this collection
Sweet Nectar is an orange cream and I wish this orange loved me as much as I love it. But naw. It’s just not that flattering on my skin. But whatever. I’m going to rock it anyway with a lipliner. Watch!
I’m sure some of the reds look similar but nope, they are all very different be it the finish, addition of subtle shimmer or blue or orange tuned hinges.

Yes Milani. Yes! I love everything about these lipsticks. Of course I didn’t expect every shade to look phenomenal on me but I was impressed with the finishes and longevity of the lippies. Of course the price point is fantastic too. Stay tuned for more features of Milani’s Color Statement Lipsticks.
