Milani Cosmetics’ Metallic Glitter Lipstick in Once Upon a Time

I can wear purple lipstick. I can wear vampy red lipstick. I can wear black lipstick. Heck, I can wear blue lipstick. Green, though, is just a color that's outside of my personal-preference zone....unless it's a lush evergreen like this one. This color goes on solid, with none of the bothersome lack-of-adhesion that I saw with Love Bites. I'm not quite sure why that is, but I'm not going to worry about it too much: I have a really gorgeous, vampy metallic green!

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

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the lip color in the tube; top right, the color applied over bare skin, to better show the shade; and below, the color applied to the lips.

The relatively minimal glitter finish might be considered a drawback, especially since this is a "metallic glitter lipstick." But I'm quite happy that it's definitely metallic, rich deep emerald in color, with even pigmentation and no feathering. It's even still in stock, which either indicates that it's quite popular, or (more likely, with us going into our third year of masking) that Milani has a LOT of this stuff in inventory and that there's just enough regular demand for them not to put it on deep extreme sale.
