Milani Pretty Pair Review and Swatches
If you’re anything like the Muse you might like a matching pair of this and a matching pair of that. How about a matching lipstick and lip gloss combo housed in a slick little compact with a fold out mirror?
In steps Milani Pretty Pair which features all three for a couture of color!
Select from 8 different shades of perfectly matching lipstick and lip gloss with the new Milani Pretty Pair Lipstick and Lip Gloss Duos out for Spring 2009.
These duos contain one lipstick and one lip gloss for creating a perfectly matching glossy, pigmented pout. Slap them both in a rather cute compact with a flip out mirror and it’s a pretty fine beauty budget find. Mix ‘em up for three different looks that you can achieve by wearing them alone or together.
Milani Pretty Pair Lipstick and Lip Gloss come housed in a stand up gold compact which has a slide out mirror on the back for easy application on the go. Simply twist and pull to release each product! Apply the lipstick first and pair it up with the gloss for added impact of color and shine.
Both products are heavily pigmented and quite a nice buy for the price of $6.99 USD. You’re probably not going to be able to purchase a gloss and a lipstick at $7 bucks so this is a nice little budget option as it gets you both.
Although the products are meant for wearing alone or together, I personally prefer using them together as they work best that way as the lipstick on it’s own is a little bit drying. Paired with the gloss you won’t notice the drying texture of the lipstick so it’s best to wear them together in my humble opinion. The formula is paraben-free as well which is always a plus.
I tried the shades Two Sweet and Two Good to Be True. Two Sweet wasn’t working out too well on me as it’s really a very true red. If you love bold, vibrant red shades you’ll absolutely adore this. On me it looks a tiny bit clown-like. Two Good to Be True is stunning and quite flattering! It’s a mix of beige with gold and silver sparkles that give it a bit of a bronze brown look. This shade was quite lovely for Spring and will work well into Summer.
If you’re looking for a rather cute compact of gloss and lipstick paired together for a low price, Milani Pretty Pair is something you’ll absolutely love. The Muse thinks they are well worth checking out for yourself for that perfect Spring pout!
