Lately I’ve been getting a mess load of emails from ladies who have would love nothing more than to venture outside of bare lips andd boring neutral lip colors to colors with a little more POW. Now I know bright lip colors ain’t for everyone. And I know they aren’t for every occasion but trust me when I tell you a bangin’ lip color can set of an outfit and send you confidence soaring through the roof.

Now I’m ain’t some lip color guru or anything like that but I remember being that female loving lip colors on other women but being terrified to wear it myself. So I’ve taken my former insecurities and your questions and devised a list that I hope will motivate you to rock a hot lip.

Beauty Review: Milani 3D Glitzy Gloss

If there is a product that you desperately need in your life, how many drugstores would you hit up in order to find it and take it home?

That’s not a trick question, y’all. And don’t judge me when I say this but I searched almost 12 CVS’ and Walgreens to find these lippies. Yeah, I know you’re giving me the side eye but I did this for you guys. I promise! If I weren’t a blogger, I darn sure wouldn’t be doing crazy stuffs like this. But when I heard that Milani came out with a blue gloss, all I could think was, “Must.Get.It.Now.”

But first, let’s talk about Milani’s Fashion Diva and how similar it is to MAC’s Funtabulous. I reviewed Funtabulous sometime ago and it always been one of my favorite lip glosses EVA! But while I am an enormous fan of MAC’s Dazzleglass, I was never a fan of spending $18 for one. That’s a hefty price tag for a gloss yo. My collection of them as never been more than 3 because of this.

Milani’s 3D Glitz glosses are pretty good dupes for the Dazzleglasses. The consistency is not as thick, sticky and pigmented as the Dazzleglass, though. These of course means that they aren’t as long lasting.

Still a steal nonetheless. And Fashion Diva looks A LOT like Funtabulous and it’s only $6.49. Heyyy!!!

And now back to Movie Star because this blue gloss is truly rocking my world. When used alone, it is rather sheer and the neon blue sparkles are hardly noticed.

I wanted to see how it look layered on top of one of my favorite Inglot lipsticks.

Loves it! Now I hate to be a dream basher but finding Movie Star is like THEE hardest thing ever. I haven’t seem to locate it in a good 2 months. Hopefully you’ll be able to track down Movie Star and her other 6 friends. You can find them at CVS, Walgreens and K-Mart.

Have you tried these yet? How do you think they compare to MAC’s Dazzleglass?
