Milani Cabaret Blend Statement Lipstick is one of several new Color Statement Lipsticks that Milani is launching for Spring 2014 at CVS this February.
So far many of these new shades have been real winners for me and Cabaret Blend is just as awesome.
Milani Cabaret Blend Color Statement Lipstick is a shade that has both outstanding color and a great formula as well. The Color Statement Lipstick Collection sometimes has a hit or miss formula but this shade is a huge hit.
It does have a very strong watermelon scent and flavor that has elements of perfume to it. Some folks are nauseated by the scent but I’ve grown used to it.
Cabaret Blend is nicely creamy with a smooth satiny finish. Color applies beautifully on my drier lips with an easy, tug-free glide. The color is SUPER pigmented! Crazy pigmented! This is full color on a single pass. However, since the color is so deep and so rich you have to be careful with it migrating and feather. Do use a transparent or colored lipliner to keep this one in check. Color wears strong for a solid five hours for me however, in that time I did have my issues with the color creeping up my lip line and even ending up on my chin so again, prep well!
The color is a deep rich, dark, vampy shade of decadent burgundy wine. I think it looks best when worn with clear gloss on top which is how I am wearing it below. The clear gloss sheers the color out for me because full on I do look a little ridiculous with this much color on my lips.
If you like making a dramatic statement with lips I guarantee Milani Cabaret Blend Color Statement Lipstick will bring all the bold and drama you can handle.
Loves this shade!
