Review: Milani Lipstick in Dolci

I found a new display at my local CVS that contained new  products from Milani!

There are five products that are all part of the Milani Summer 2015 Dolci Bronze collection.  This collection contains:

  • Lipstick
  • Lipgloss
  • Bronzer
  • Color Statement Nail Polish
  • Eyeshadow

Each one is in the shade “Dolci” and is a beautiful rose gold/bronze color.  My store was completely out of the nail polish and eyeshadow, but I did get my hands on the other three!

Today’s review will be on the lipstick.  The other two will be going up later on this week.

I purchased this for $6.49.

  First of all, how gorgeous is this packaging?

    I found it difficult to photograph the true color of this lipstick.  It looks darker at first and then when it hits the light it has that foiled effect.  It’s definitely a metallic bronzer/shimmer lipstick.

   can see the gold specks in this picture.

The color is beautiful!

Unfortunately for me, this product has that same watermelon scent as some of the other Milani color statement lipsticks (the original not the matte) which I dislike.

That alone is enough to keep me away from using this product.

The other con is the application.  I had a tough time getting an even application of this.

I wasn’t a fan of the metallic finish.  I just didn’t love how it looked on me.  I can definitely see this working for others though and can think of so many friends of mine who could definitely rock this finish.

Overall, this just didn’t work for me.  I love the idea of the collection and I could make this work by layering it with another color, but the smell kills it for me.
I’m hoping to find the nail polish and eyeshadow because I think those would work better for me! 🙂

Check out your local CVS if you are interested in this collection!

If you’ve tried it, let me know your thoughts!

Have a beautiful and wonderful day!
