Milani | 01 Sweet Nectar (Cream)  
First of all, I want to thank Amelia(The Non Brit) for a little photography tip! It made my pictures crispy clear. Please go check Amelia's amazing photos & reviews on her blog :)
 
I am a huge drugstore lover and love affordable products that have great quality. Well, who doesn't? The other day I went to the mart to get some berries- technically my boyfriend wanted it. While my boyfriend was picking some fruits, I wondered around the beauty section (just like always.) I picked several products. This Milani's Sweet Nectar Lipstick is one of them.
Milani's 'Sweet Nectar' is a  bright orange-red(more orange-ish), with subtle yellow undertones. It is super creamy, very opaque color looks might be better on darker or more olive skin tones, paired with winged liner and heavy black mascara. If you are looking for something wearable orange color lipstick, this might be perfect for you. It also has like bubble gum kind of smell which I really like it. 

Like : Pigmentation, It's very creamy but still doesn't go into every single lip cracks. I also do like the smell of it and its affordable price.

Dislike: Little too easy to get smudged. It doesn't seem like a 'long lasting' product.

Product Description : Make a statement without saying a word!  True Instant Color. One stroke, full coverage application. This next generation lipstick gives the ultimate in color, texture and finish.  The lightweight creamy formula contains Vitamins A, C, & E to moisturize and nourish lips. Paraben-free.

  1. I ordered a Milani lipstick a few weeks ago because it was only a few dollars, and I was pleasantly surprised! I was expecting it to be pretty terrible, but no! I really love the colour you chose.

  13. Such a shame that it smudges and not very long lasting, thanks for the review because thats a very important factor I look at when I buy lip products. But it is such a pretty color!

  14. that's a lovely color. I find the scent of these new Milani lipsticks a bit too strong otherwise, I think they are fairly good.
