Milani Power Lip ($6.50) is a moisturizing gloss and lip stain all in one. It comes in a variety of 8 different shades. They were buy one, get one 50% off recently so I picked up two of them. I went with the nude shade, Creamy Cafe, and a pink shade, Pink Lemonade.
I love the compact size of these. They aren’t as small as a tube of lipstick but they aren’t as long as a normal lip gloss tube. Each tube contains 0.09 oz which is on lower end.
These glossy stains have a brush tip for easy application. To get product out, you simply twist the tube. Don’t twist too much though cause a ton will come out all at once.
I was instantly impressed at how super pigmented these are! They have a silky smooth texture to them with no stickiness at all. They remind me a lot of a liquid lipstick. One layer gives me opaque coverage with a very glossy finish.
They are marketed as a stain and the Pink Lemonade one does really stain my lips a medium pink color once it wears off. Creamy Cafe however does not leave any color behind on my lips.
These have about average wear time just like any normal gloss would. They easily wear off with eating and drinking. I do like that they don’t dry out my lips at all as well.
I would have to say that I highly recommend the Milani Power Lip. If you like a glossy finish and a quick way to get instant color, then these are for you. I definitely need to pick up a few more colors!
