Milani Bella Blue Lip Art Lipstick ($3.99) is a new limited edition blue shade of lipstick that Milani recently released for Summer 2014.
Lord knows, I wish I can rock blue lipstick but Milani Bella Blue Lip Art Lipstick can be used in other ways!
Milani Bella Blue Lip Art is marketed as a full coverage blue lipstick. I find the shade isn’t quite full coverage and runs more sheerer. It will look different on an array of different skin tones which makes it unique.
This is a different packaging for Milani as you can see. This comes in a clear case so you can see the complete lipstick inside. It’s a very Shu Uemura take on packaging!
It is a rather lovely shade of blue that has an almost metallic, silver sheen. The shade almost looks like a blueish gray. It does not apply fully opaque on first application so I could easily see my natural lip color on the first layer. Three layers will give you more pigment but you’ll find the shade a bit translucent even when built. If you want the best color pay off and the bluest one you’ll need to neutralize your lips by using a lip primer of sorts to nude your lips out. You can even use maybe an old nude zombie color lipstick that might be hiding in your makeup graveyard to nude your lips out prior to application and apply this on top so you get a more pigmented color pay off.

The texture of the lipstick is quite nice. I wouldn’t say as creamy as Milani Color Statement Lipstick but it has a slicker texture with an easy glide and isn’t drying in the least although it will have to reapplied without three or so hours because it does fade quickly when worn without anything under it.
I can’t really wear blue lipstick. I like a bit, scary!!? But I use it either under or over red lipstick to add richness to the color. It kinda makes reds look even redder and more vibrant! So if you’re worried Milani Bella Blue Lip Art Lipstick isn’t for you, don’t, because it is workable in other interesting ways! Heck, I haven’t tried, but maybe you can even get along using as a creamy shadow!
Milani Bella Blue Lip Art Lipstick is available now at Walgreens.
