Milani Rose Hip Lipstick

The Summer Season: Milani Rose Hip Lipstick

Milani Rose Hip (07) Lip Color ($3.49 for 0.13 oz.) is a beautiful, vibrant shade of fuchsia-pink. It has no shimmer but it does have a bit of a frosty sheen–not quite glossy. It’s intensely pigmented without having to pile on the layers, and it feels lightweight. The formula itself is creamy and moisturizing, but I find the color wears off considerably after two to three hours. (In all consideration, though I rate quality independent of price, $3.50 for a lipstick doesn’t make me feel guilty or worried about reapplying throughout the day!) I wish the scent was a little less synthetic and waxy, but I don’t notice it when I’m wearing it (though those with more sensitive sniffers may want to try before they buy).

Is this the right bright pink lipstick for you? Would you wear it?

The Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.
