    A few weeks ago I shared some lip swatches from Milani Cosmetics new for Spring 2014 Power Lip Lasting & Moisturizing Gloss Stains! In that post you can see three of the eight shades available — Cabaret Blend, Raspberry Tart, and Macaroon. At the time of that post I unfortunately didn’t have Red Control. Not too long afterward, imagine It wasn’t too long afterward when I received Red Control in the mail along with a few other new items Milani is releasing!

    So, without further ado, here is my review and lip swatch of it! (Finally! The photos I took have been on my computer for weeks.)

    Milani Power Lip Gloss Stain - Red Control

    Milani Power Lip products sell for $6.49 each and contain 0.09 oz / 2.5 g of product. There are eight shades total to choose from. I have been sent four shades total. The first three were Cabaret Blend, Raspberry Tart, and Macaroon, which you can see in my initial swatch post here. This post is sharing my fourth Power Lip product, in the shade Red Control. Bonus: Milani Cosmetics is a cruelty-free company.

    Official description
    Power Lip Lasting & Moisturizing Gloss Stain combines the shine of a gloss with the long wear of a stain. When first applied it goes on like a high-shine gloss, and then wears to a rich stain that lasts. Formula cushions lips and provides a non-drying, comfortable wear. Get the power of a bold lip in just one click! Paraben-free.

    How to use: Before first use, prime brush by twisting base until lipcolor appears on applicator tip. For light shine and stain, apply one coat onto the center of the lips and brush toward the outer corners. For more coverage and color pop, apply two coats.

    Anyone who has followed my blog or my Instagram long enough will know by now that I am crazy for a great red lip. This product did not fail to make me excited. It’s pigmented, it lasts for an insanely long time, it’s glossy (!!!)… this is basically a kick-ass blue-based red that stole my heart. Even when I don’t want to wear much else for makeup, this shade still manages to help me look put-together and feel gorgeous.

    Like my other Power Lips post covered, the formulation and wear time are incredible considering this price point. I’m in love with this red. Maybe it’s the high-shine that has me going bananas over it? Don’t get me wrong, I adore a matte red lip, but a bold red with a glossy finish feels very fresh to me. If you haven’t picked up on my excitement by now, I definitely recommend this to anyone who is a fanatic for red lips–it is seriously a great addition to any Red Lover’s collection!
