5 stars out of 5

Milani Color Fetish Shine Lipstick ($8.99) is a new, lightweight lipstick with a shiny finish that launched in 12 shades for Spring 2021. I love this formula. I’m a little sad I only got one but I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about the texture so I just grabbed the one! I’m going back for more for sure. I actually like them more than Maybelline Color Sensational Shine Compulsion Lipstick and L’Oreal Colour Riche Shine Lipstick if you can believe it.

By the way, Milani Black Friday started today and you can use code BLACKFRIDAY to grab 30% off!

Let’s take a look at my Milani Color Fetish Shine Lipstick review below!

Milani Color Fetish Shine Lipstick arrives in a studded barrel that sort of gives me Kat Von D vibes! This barrel holds 0.1 oz of lipstick and is comparable in size to both L’Oreal and Maybelline’s formulas. Out of the three L’Oreal’s formula is the more expensive ($11.99 original retail) and Maybelline ($7.99 original retail) the cheapest with Milani ($8.99) right in the middle at $8.99 per shade. Of course, there are so many sales on drugstore makeup you’ll likely never spend that much on any of these formulas but I still like to compare.

As I said these remind me of the KVD Beauty Studded Kiss Creme Lipsticks but they are a bit slimmer and color isn’t standard black! The barrel shade reflects the color of the lipstick inside. It’s a pretty lightweight packaging but those that like their barrel standard and uniform so everything stores easier might not appreciate the studs surrounding the barrel.

Milani Tied Up Color Fetish Shine Lipstick

Milani nailed the formula in my opinion! I love both Maybelline and L’Oreal’s version but Milan’s seems thinner in comparison with lightweight moisture and a very shiny finish compared to both of those lipsticks. It melts like butter on my lips! It has such a smooth, easy glide that practically applies itself! Even when my lips are at their worst this still has a smooth, perfect finish! The lightweight moisture is nice and soothes my drier lips while the color is pigmented and beautiful! And there’s plenty of shine here as promised! The wear is about three and half hours for me.

Milani Color Fetish Shine Lipstick is a winner. Lightweight, moisturizing, excellent color, and beautiful shine! A fantastic lipstick!

Where to buy


Milani Color Fetish Shine Lipstick is a new shiny, lightweight, moisturizing lipstick that gets an early launch for Spring 2021. This lipstick is available in 12 shades at $8.99 each which are 0.1 oz in size. I thought the formula was fantastic. It’s lightweight, glides on lips like butter, and leaves behind smooth, pigmented color with a very shiny finish. It feels lightly hydrating on my dry lips and wears for about three and a half hours.


  • Lightweight!
  • Moisturizing.
  • Very shiny.


  • Smaller shade selection, wish there were more!


Milani Color Fetish Shine Lipstick is a perfect pick for anyone that loves shiny lipsticks!

    What blush and eyeshadow are you wearing here with the Milani Lipstick?
    I really like it!

    • Isabella Muse

      Thank you! It’s Milani Baked Blush in Sunrise Serenita and my eyes is a shade from the new Huda Palette, it’s one of the matte browns, I forgot the name LOL! πŸ˜€

        You know, that textured barrel reminds me a little of that Kat Von D Studded Kiss lipstick that was popular a few years ago- are you seeing the similarity? I love drugstore dupes.

  • Kellly

    That looks beautiful on you! The color suits you very well. It looks like the color I will pick for myself too once these (finally) show up in my area in about a month or so
    I’m so glad shiny lipsticks have returned!

  • Felicity

    YES! I can’t wait to find these in stock. My absolute absolute favorite formula was Revlon lip butter (pink truffle was my fav) and this reminds me so much of that formula. You always provide swatches for exactly what I’m looking for, I refer to your blog so often, thank you.

      I’m sure Walgreens will start getting them soon! πŸ™‚ I used to LOVE Pink Truffle! I’m so sad it’s gone! aw thank you! That means the WORLD to me!
