Milani Color Statement 2013 Lipsticks: Reds & Oranges Swatches/Review

Hola! This morning I have swatches of some awesome new lipsticks from Milani to show you guys! Milani recently revamped the packaging for their Color Statement lipsticks and they now come packaged in beautiful gold tubes with a clear piece at the bottom that shows the color of the lipstick. Today I have the red and orange shades to share with you. All of these lippies have great pigmentation and smell like watermelon in the tube! The scent doesn't stay on the lip, but I love it!

Sweet Nectar is a bright orange creamy shade. I thought orange would be too crazy for me, but I actually kind of like this one.

Orange-Gina is a metallic warm orange with a "pearl" finish.

High Voltage is a seriously bright red with a "vinyl" finish. It is so shiny!

Red Label is a pretty even-toned red to my eye. Nice and saturated.

Cherry Crave is a warm metallic red shade. I generally prefer cream shades over shades with shimmer, but this one is very pretty and flattering.

Best Red is my favorite of the set and the first one that I wore. This is the most matte shade out of all of them (I actually gently patted a tissue over my lips to take away a bit more of the shine when I wore this). It matches perfectly with the True Red lip liner.

Ruby Valentine is the last and darkest of the shades. This one has a vinyl finish and is very shiny! However, you can see that it doesn't match too well with the True Red lip liner.

Here are swatches of all the shades on my arm. From left to right on the top: Sweet Nectar, High Voltage, Cherry Crave, and Ruby Valentine. From left to right on the bottom: Orange-Gina, Red Label, Best Red, True Red lip liner, Nude lip liner.

These lipsticks retail for $5.49, which is incredible for how nice they are. You can view and order them on Milani's website, or find them in your local drugstores. Do you rock red lips?
