Milani Violet Volt Color Statement Lipstick

Milani Violet Volt Color Statement Lipstick ($5.49 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “purple metallic.” It’s a rich, red-toned violet magenta with violet shimmer and a frosted, metallic finish. MAC Heroine has no shimmer, so it is a bit darker and purpler. MAC Seductive Intent is very similar in color but has no shimmer. MAC Violetta is slightly purpler (not as red/magenta) but also has shimmer–but it is smaller so it doesn’t appear metallic.
