Milani Raspberry Rush Color Statement Lipstick
Milani Raspberry Rush Color Statement Lipstick

Milani Raspberry Rush Color Statement Lipstick ($5.49 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “raspberry metallic.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark fuchsia-shimmered pink-red with a frosted, metallic finish. NARS Jardin des Plantes is redder and less iridescent. Estee Lauder Demure is pinker, less iridescent. MAC Lickable has a similar base color but lacks the frosted finish and iridescence. MAC Quite the Thing is a touch more berry-hued. NYX Chloe is similar. Illamasqua Atomic is similar but matte. MAC Full Fuchsia is also similar in color but not as shimmery.

The lipstick was fully opaque–not quite in a single stroke (that’s how it’s advertised), but it doesn’t take too much to get there. It looks fairly good applied, but the texture is noticeably dry and stiff, so it doesn’t apply as well as I’d like. It just tugs and drags on the lips, so it takes several passes to even out the color and get full coverage. Because of the drier texture, it does settle and feel a bit clingy (not the clingiest texture I’ve come across, though), but the upside is it wears well and lasted six hours on me (and left a stain behind).  It has a very strong, sweet, fruity scent.

I really wish Milani's metallic lipsticks were creamier--just enough that they'd apply more evenly and smoothly without a lot of work, and so they wouldn't feel so clingy when worn.

  1. Love the purple iridescence!

  2. What a fabulous colour for Spring/summer. I think I would need to try it first before I buy bearing in mind your comments on it being dry and not applying as well as advertised. Shame because the colour is just gorgeous.

  3. It colour is amazing, I love the fuschia shimmer.

    Lovely color on you! Also, your base makeup is looking exceptionally stunning and flawless here! What are you using for foundation and concealer under your eyes?

  5. LOVE this color!! Looks great on you, ill have to pick this up for sure, a nice shade for spring :)

  6. This color has my name written all over it!

  7. I loved the colour in the tube, but you can see in your photos it definitely does not provide much in the way of moisture.

  8. The finish is definitely eye-catching!

    OMG thats the colour i’ve been looking for everywhere! So disappointing that we can’t get Milani in the UK :( so sad now.

  10. That’s why I wear gloves when I do my product photos ;) LOL! (I’m a jerk huh? Yeah I know) Heheh Pretty lipstick though! This is one of those colors that I always have to stop myself from buying because I have several of them already :/

  11. I love Milani but I don’t like this color at all and the formula doesn’t sound great – particularly for me, because my lips are super prone to dryness

    The shimmery shades in this line aren’t my favorite, but the creamy ones are awesome!

    For some reason I don´t like the way this looks at all. Maybe it´s the finish that I find unflaterring…I don´t know…
