Vivacious Fuschia+Wild Nails.

Milani HD Advanced Lip Color • Vivacious Fuschia 112
Holiz (: I just wanted to show the Milani lipcolor that I received earlier this week. Sometime last month, Milani's FB was giving away these lipcolors & even catered to your color preference which I thought was pretty cool! They sent a full size lipstick. I wish more cosmetic companies would do this! I'm looking at you, Revlon!

  • Really moisturizing & creamy. It glides on really smoothly like a lip balm without the waxy-ness.
  • It's a sheer lipstick but can easily be built up to full coverage.
  • Fruity watermelon scent. Might be a con for some girls. But it's not overwhelming & I find it pretty pleasant.
  • Sleek design & has a lot of product.
  • High shine!
  • As you can see from the pictures, the color bleeds really easily. (top right)
  • Lasting power is not very long. The color faded significantly within the hour.
  • Kind of pricey for a not-so-special lipstick. I've seen them at Walgreens for around $7 or $8
  • It's not a regular up & down tube. It clicks up & down. This might not matter to some people, but I just don't like that lol.
I love the red based pink but am not a big fan of  the application. I prefer matter lips, so I probably won't get much use out of this. I do love how moisturizing it is, though.

I used these full nail stickers along with my Lee Press On's the other day. Haa. Although I got a lot of air bubbles on my first hand lol I managed to pull it together on the other one. I'm not sure what kind of animal print it is but it's really pretty. I was super disheartened though because the stickers started to peel off the next day. :(

Thanks so much for stopping by (:

Pretty color! I received mine in Classy nude. I love the smell & softness but I agree that it doesn't last long.

BTW I like your banner =)

It's a shame that the lipstick faded within an hour. I really want to be able to pull of this kind of lip color. The nails are beautiful <3

Loren said...

Those nails are awesome! I haven't tried nail stickers yet, are they easy to apply?

Melyssa said...

That's such a pretty color. I think I'd dare to wear it (anything pink but not red). Would it last a little longer if you dab a little powder on top? I do it sometimes ^.^

Love them nail stickers, so cool!

@ Loren : After awhile you get the hang of it. But I'll admit I had a pretty bad first time lol The first hand didn't look so good :( It gets easier with practice though.

@Melyssa You're right! I guess it would last longer with powder. thanks for the tip <3

@Mie Exactly girl -__- haha it's not super unique.

@Lindsie Hi girl! Glad to see you back!! How have you been? Things are good with me :P

@Indigal thanks so much! I surely will (:

i love he lip color! I need to be brave and just rock it!
I use jamberry nails which is more like a nail shield---uses heat and pressure to stay on. I would love if you could do a review and tell me what you think. They can be used on artificial nails.
Let me know if you're interested.
