Milani Fierce Foil Brilliant Shine Lipgloss is a six shade permanent lipgloss collection launching with the Milani Spring 2015 Collection!
So far Milani has been hit or miss with their Spring collection. The new Eyeshine Palettes have disappointed as have the Fierce Foil Eyeliners (although I admit to using these often and loving them none the less). I expected the Fierce Foil Brilliant Shine Lipgloss to hopefully prove better than what I’ve seen so far but unfortunately, these are a mess!
Take a look!
Milani Fierce Foil Brilliant Shine Lipgloss at a glance reminded me of my beloved Milani 3D Glitzy Glamour Gloss from way back in the day. I really adored that formula! But turns out the formula is more like the shimmer overload we saw from Milani Haute Flash Full Coverage Shimmer Lipgloss.
These come in a square barrel tube with an attached flat sponge applicator. The flat sponge applicator is very helpful because this gloss has a unique texture and it proves a little difficult to spread evenly so the sponge is very helpful.

For me, the texture and formula reminds me of metallic craft foil sheets or if you have it the texture is much like the Sephora Precious Metal Mousse Shadow. The formula is pretty thick, it’s very chunky with huge chunks of foil-like pieces which are super shimmery. I feel like a robot when I wear some of these shades! They don’t necessarily have a foiled finish but they do reflect metallic but for the most part many of the shades look frosty and ultra shimmery. The texture isn’t sticky and does have a smooth feel but it is a gloss that makes itself well known on lips so it isn’t lightweight that’s for sure. It has a very strong sweet vanilla taste and flavor that’s slightly fruity, I know total contradiction but it’s kinda a fruity vanilla flavor. I didn’t mind the flavor or the fragrance but it is very strong so it could be a deal breaker for many especially if you take into consideration how strong a scent the Milani Color Statement Lipsitcks had!
Many of these shades tend to look similar on lips but they do reflect different depending on the light you’re in. Worn alone they are a highly glittery, shimmery gloss. On top of lipstick or stain they add a very nice sparkly effect and bring a three dimensional finish to your lip product!

It’s an odd thing as I felt some the shades wearable but others a little overkill in the shimmery department. For example, out of the six shades, Florence, a rich dark berry wine, had a lot less shimmer with a lacquer-like finish! If all the shades were as nice as this one I’d be more inclined to rave. Although I will say this particular shade does feather and bleed a good deal. The worst offenders, shades I’d recommend avoiding, were Venice, Milan, and Rome. These three are very chunky and super shimmery!
The wear varies but I get about three hours of wear from the shades. I hate when they wear away because they leave behind a ton of shimmer.
Milani Fierce Foil Brilliant Shine Lipgloss is an interesting product but the formula and intensely shimmery, chunky texture might be a miss for most folks. If you are curious I’d recommend grabbing Florence or even Sardinia as those are two very wearable shades. The others? They might just be a miss. The odd texture, strong flavor, and incredibly hard to wear formula makes them a big miss for me.
