Milani Power Lip Lasting & Moisturizing Gloss Stain

Hey guys! I’ve been chugging through all of the other Milani’s new offerings for 2014 and here’s the one that surprised me the most. Here’s Milani Power Lip Lasting & Moisturizing Gloss Stain.

These are described as:

  • New non-drying formula
  • Long lasting shine, stain & color coverage
  • Easy to use twist pen with brush applicator
  • Non-feathering
  • Made in USA

I wasn’t excited about this product at first glance, but this blew all my expectations away. The unassuming simple packaging disguised such a powerful product that packs a lot of punch to bring color to your lips. To use, you have to twist on the base until product is visible in the brush tip applicator. The lip brush is initially stiff, but it will soften up with the initial use.

Pigmentation is superb for these bold lip glosses and formula is very pleasant to apply with almost no stickiness at all. This is much pigmented than their other new offering Milani Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss, as it should be based on the “stain” in the name. It lasts all day — even through light snacking and sips of water! Color me impressed! This definitely lives up to being called a gloss stain (lip stain with the gloss). Gloss effect is high, but not overly done. Scent is similar to a lot of the other Milani lip products, like buttery vanilla. The finish for all shades vary from cream to shimmer mostly. No surprise here, my favorite would be the shimmery ones. BUT! I am very impressed with the cream shades mostly because of how opaque and pretty the shades are. This is available in 8 different shades and I have 4 on hand to show you swatches. For each shade, I globbed it on in the first picture since I was twisting each tube to get the product out and wanted to show what the product looks like in its pure form. The second picture shows more or less what to expect with a normal application of the product with 2 gentle strokes. This is how much product I usually apply with lip glosses.
