LTHP Quickies! Milani Power Lip Lasting & Moisturizing Gloss Stains

(**Press Samples**)
Hello and happy Monday!! 

  Well, as happy as a Monday can be anyway lol. Today I want to share this quickie post going over the new Milani Power Lip Moisturizing Gloss Stains. Milani kicked off 2014 with a huge expansion of lip products. The Power Lip release is made up of Eight, brand new, glossy shades.

 The packaging on these resembles the, ever-popular, pencil lip stains. The color of the Tube represents the color of the gloss very accurately. These pretties are equipped with a stiff (ish) brush applicator. I was a bit worried when I noticed that these are the kind of glosses where you twist up to get the product to come out of the brush.
 The good news is that each click dispenses a controlled amount. It was good to see that the product does not come gushing out, hence ending up with wasted product. Anyhow, I really like the applicator on these, it really works well with this type of uber pigmented gloss.

 I love the consistency of these. They are very glossy and moisturizing. To say they are pigmented is an understatement. It takes very little product to achieve an opaque look. For some reason I was expecting these to be a bit more sheer, they are not. These have incredible staying power, they really do live up to their "gloss stain" title.

Red Control: This shade is an amazing classic, glossy, Ruby Red.
Raspberry Tart: A classic shade of deep Raspberry creamy gloss. 
Cabaret Blend- This shade is a classic deep Burgundy- Wine with a slight shimmer. 
Pink Lemonade- IDK why this shade is called Pink anything lolol.. It is definitely more of a Watermelon shade. Somewhere between Pink, Orange and Red. That said, it is a GORGEOUS shade!
Macaron: This shade is a perfect shade of warm Pink- Mauve creamy gloss. 
Strawberry Sugar: Ok, first thing's first... The formula on this color SUCKS.... It is a shame, the color is really pretty. It is an interesting shade of light, creamy Pink. It is almost White based. It was so streaky, sticky, and hard to get even. It is also a strange color at first, after a while I did grow to like it. 
Mango Tango: This shade is the most perfect shade of light, Spring Coral. This color is perfect in every way. 
Creamy Cafe: This shade is a wonderful light creamy Brown with a bit of shimmer. It looks really flattering and effortless. 

And now.. RANDOM swatches!! Hahaha, these are the pretties I've gotten around to wearing. I did prep my lips with the Milani Anti-feathering clear pencil for these. It made the application very easy. Prepping my lips also created a smooth surface for the color and extended the wear.

Now... this is a weird swatch.... It looked weird from this up close. But, yeah, this was the best I could get it to look. Milani Strawberry Sugar.
 So as you can see, even though they are glosses, they are ridiculously pigmented. I really dig these a lot. The colors are so perfect for Spring and Summer. These are available now wherever Milani is sold and retail for $6.49.

Unrelated news: I finally have completed setting up my little corner of polished goodness. I'm so happy to be finally done with that project. It was much more of an ordeal that I thought it would be hahah. But I'm super excited to get to working on some nails. 

My faves are Mango Tango, Macaron, Red Control and Creamy Cafe. Are any of these speaking to you?
