Milani Crystal Gloss for Lips New Shades Cotton Candy, Fascination, Precious Review & Swatches

Milani Crystal Gloss for Lips are available in three new shades for Summer. The new shades are Cotton Candy, Fascination, Precious.

Haven’t tried Milani Crystal Gloss for Lips?

Well, it’s a dupe for something a lot more expensive…!

MAC Lipglass….yup, the formula is very much a dupe of MAC Lipglass in formula, texture, and wear time. Crazy right? But a true story…

These tiny tubes look small but they contain 0.17 oz of gloss. That would be the equivalent of a MAC Lipglass for as little as $5 bucks and change.

The formula is a nice medium consistency which isn’t too thin, nor too thick and has a wonderful wear time since the product has just the right amount of comfortable tackiness that adheres to lips.

Like Lipglass they tend to start out a little drier but build up easily leaving behind a nice bit of glossy shine. The newer shades are on the sheer side but they create a nice, nude lip look if that’s your deal or I suggest a little lipstick or stain underneath for more pop.

Cotton Candy, Fascination, Precious


Cotton Candy


If you’re on a strict budget these are pretty nice little dupe of MAC’s version for as little as five bucks each. Winning!

The three new shades are available at CVS, Walgreens, or online at

Tried ’em?

Love ’em?

    I have Fruit Punch and I love the heck out of it…since it’s so small I keep it in the wristlet I use on weekends :).

    The rose one with shimmer you reviewed looks like a perfect MLBB shade, I’ll have to pick it up…Fruit Punch is amazing but quite bright, so it’d be nice to have a more natural looking one in my wristlet as well πŸ™‚

    Muse, would you describe the taste / scent of these Milani Crystal Glosses? I’ve heard everything from “smells like plastic” to “cookies” to “watermelon.” *confused*

      mine tastes vanilla-ish christina. not watermelon or plastic…very subtle vanilla more pleasant than the vanilla of a mac glass that’s for sure.

    I am not scent sensitive, but these smell not so nice. It doesn’t linger. The color and wear time on these are really nice!!
