In the winter, I played with lots of red! But, now that spring is here, I’m ready for something a little more fresh when I want a bright pop of color on my lips. I finally found the perfect hue in Milani’s Uptown Mauve color.
In college, I had this great fuchsia color I wore and then it was discontinued. Oh, the stress of losing a color you love and having to start the experimentation again. It took me years to find another color I loved like my college hue. The great thing about this Milani shade is that not only is it pretty, but the wear and color feel amazing on as well!
This lipstick goes on creamy and smooth. I haven’t had any issues with it feathering out and it lasts for a long time. As you wear it, it transitions from a little bit of glossy sheen to a stain look on your lips. And at around $5 for the tube, it’s pretty hard to say no to at least trying it out!
In the photo above, you can see me wearing this bright hue. But, I’ve picked out several other mauve shades below that should help point you in the right direction whether you want something more muted, more pink, more neutral, etc. Look for this same photo on my Instagram feed today to enter to win the awesome Laura Cox Designs necklace I’m wearing in the picture!
