Milani Cosmetics’ Metallic Glitter Lipstick collection

This was released for Halloween 2021 (or maybe it was Halloween 2020?) and it's still around, with all colors still available. I love that! I don't know how much longer this will last, but it feels like metallic and/or glittery lipstick collections don't stick around for years. NYX's Wicked Lippies are the last big-name brand that I can remember who released an entire metallic-lip collection, and those seemed to go out of stock fairly regularly. This is a smaller group, and concentrated on deeper and more saturated colors: three reds, one deep green, one bright medium purple, and one black. This is definitely a "Halloween"-color grouping.

All of these have fairy good coverage, though you will want a lip liner for the deep green and the black, even if you aren't typically a lip-liner person. They cover well, but I've found that they need a second pass to really even out the color. I am on the search for a good sticky lip primer, with these lipsticks even more so, since the glitter is the first element to visibly wear off.

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches

Three lip colors, swatched: Love Bites, Make Believe, and Once Upon a Time. Two lipsticks, swatched: Poison Apple, and Sticks & Spells.

in 2012, four years after I began my latest deep dive into makeup, I would have passed these by without trying them. In 2016, I might have looked longingly at the bright magenta-pink, thinking how it was a gorgeous shade but I'd never find a reason to actually wear it, especially with the glitter finish. This past autumn, I bought all of the shades EXCEPT the lightest.

When the artist is ready, the paints will appear.

Apparently.

This collection contained:

  • Love Bites - metallic ruby-red sparkle
  • Make Believe - metallic vivid violet sparkle
  • Once Upon a Time - metallic evergreen sparkle
  • Poison Apple - metallic blood-red sparkle
  • Squad Ghouls - metallic medium bright magenta sparkle
  • Sticks and Spells - metallic black sparkle
