Milani Cinnamon Spice Lipstick

Milani Cinnamon Spice Color Statement Lipstick ($5.49) is one of six brand new, permanent shades being added to the Milani Color Statement Lipstick Collection.

If you recall I fell in love with Estee Lauder Burnished Bronze Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick in October and much to my delight Cinnamon Spice is a delightful version of it but with a WAY beefier formula that’s pigmented and stunning.

Bring on Summer because I’m ready for it with this shade.

Milani Cinnamon Spice Color Statement Lipstick is a metallic shimmering shade brownish bronze with golden shimmer. This is a beautiful color for Spring break and will work well into Summer and of course, when Fall comes back around this is a perfect autumn lip look color.

This has a smooth creamy consistency that doesn’t tug during application and provides full opacity in two layers. The color has an even application that doesn’t migrate of feather. The wear time is a solid five hours for me before showing fading and completely disappearing at hour six. It does have highly fragranced formula and flavor which tastes like watermelon. I find the smell and taste pleasant but sensitive users might not love it.

I haven’t yet tried any of the other new shades but if they are as wonderful as Cinnamon Spice I’m in for a treat as I adored this shade.

DO get it when it launches in February at CVS.

Muse Approved.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Happy Monday, Sista Muse! I am definitely a fan of Milani and the entire line of new lipsticks are lovely BUT I cannot bear the smell! Seriously, I tossed three or four of them because the scent renders them unwearable to me. I swore off L’Oreal lipsticks years ago because of the old lady perfume stank — but these are even worse IMO. Such a shame because the colors are indeed lovely and if it wasn’t for the damnable smell, I’d probably buy all of them! Are you listening, Milani?

    I was totally prepared to hate this shade based on the tube, but it looks beautiful on you! It’s sparkly and rich enough that it could be a holiday colour, too. Very impressed.

      I love it! and thank you 🙂 I think it’ll be lovely as Holiday shade as well! So versatile 🙂

    I love that you can find this at the drugstore! It’s much more affordable not to mention convenient.

    Hi Muse. Beautiful color. I’ve only owned one Milani lipstick and found it to be drying. Maybe this is a different formula. Btw, I didn’t get your e-mail for this blog today. Not sure what happened. I tried to resub, but it said I was already sub’d and wouldn’t let me.

      melissa the formula is very inconsistent because I have a few that are dry as well where as some are incredibly creamy and gorgeous! you aren’t alone! 🙂 Any posts I did yesterday should be in your inbox today, typically it is a one day delay, did you get them today yet?
