Milani Color Statement Lipstick Orange-Gina

Anyone one for burnt orange gorgeousness? Milani Statement Lipstick in Orange-Gina is my new go to for Spring lips. You know how I always bitch, complain, and whine about the fact I love orange but can’t pull it off on lips?

That isn’t the case when orange goes metallic! I can kinda dig metallic oranges that’s why Orange-Gina is my new BFF for Spring.

Milani’s new Color Statement Lipstick is all kinds of awesome. If you haven’t tried a few shades you’re missing out. Check your local displays at CVS and Walgreens as they are just starting to pop up in stores now. GREAT budget lipstick!

Milani Orange-Gina Color Statement Lipstick Swatches

Orange-Gina Swatched Right

Orange-Gina is the exception (along with a few other shades) as it is kinda one of those shades that tugs and looks rather dry on lips. Blame it on the metallic finish? Dunno..but the texture is less than smooth on my lips and this is on lips that aren’t even dry! If you have chapped lips or are prone to flaky, dry lips I’d avoid the shade like the plague. I know this sounds like a rant but honestly, I love the shade!

If you can get past all the hassle of the drier texture the color is a gorgeous lighter burnt orange bronze pearl! It’s a true orange but very wearable due to the metallic finish. It’ll rock on tanned and darker skin tones but I had fun playing with it today and amuse myself that it looks rather well, just agree, no one gets hurt that way 😀

Milani Orange-Gina Color Statement Lipstick FOTD

I think I can pull it off a hell of a lot easier than a cream finish. The shade kinda sorta reminds me of a lighter version of Revlon Orange Abstract.

Pick it up or choose from a ridiculous amount of other shades that makeup the new Milani Color Statement Lipstick Collection.

Own it?

    I love my new Milani lipsticks. Ill have to get this one on my next trip to CVS. 😀 Im more into the orange colors in the summer. I sure do like the changes they make and the fruity smell is very nice too. I could almost eat it. LOL 😀

        It took two days for that comment to show up. Have you been moderating me :-)?

          everyone’s comments are moderated, some are over a month old 🙂 It’s only me running the blog so I get swamped sometimes and can’t reply right away 🙂 I have over 600 pending at the moment slowing getting through ’em today! 🙂 I’m doing my best to reply fast but I def get crazy sometimes with comments. Sorry for the delay.

    What color is swatched on the right? I finally found these in Walgreens along the wall. I was expecting a display out front. They had all the shades. I picked up Sweet Nectar because it was a little different from what I usually buy. It’s very nice.
