One of those brand that is very hyped about at the moment is Milani Cosmetics. I was very late to the party and only just recently tried out a selection of their products (which you can read more about here), and there's no denying that the products exceed all expectations. Today I'm excited to share with you some additional products… 

First up is the Milani Cosmetics Spotlight Face and Eye Strobe Palette in Sunlight, which is available in three shades, and I put the darkest shade, Golden Light, to the test. This palette is incredibly beautiful with its wavy design, which is made up from three different shades, a rose gold, a bronze and a gold. And it is truly the most versatile multitasking illuminating palette you'll come across, as it can be used as blush, highlighter on the cheek bones, cupids bow, brow bone, eye shadow and accent for the most stunning luminous glow. The shades are all very buildable, so you can apply just a touch for everyday use, or build up for a night out. I especially love the bronze shade as an eye shadow, and the rose gold on my cheeks. This colour combination is perhaps a tad dark for my current winter-pale skin, but will be absolutely perfect come summer and my skin gets slightly tanned, so for now, I wouldn't mind checking out a paler shade on my pale skin now.

The Milani Rose Powder Blush is without a doubt one of those makeup items that is featured the most amongst beauty bloggers, and with good reason as is it so incredibly stunning with its rose embossed design. But it is also such a beautiful blush to wear. I tried the shade Romantic Rose to the test, which is a matte nude dusty rose shade. And this shade is the best shade for those with pale skin, giving you a beautiful and very natural blushed cheek. Perfect for everyday makeup, or a barely there look, also because it applies with just a very subtle sheen. It is
 quite pigmented, so you have the choice if you want to apply just a sheer wash of colour, or have a more intense look. Just incredible, and worth all the hype. 

The blush comes in a golden compact with a clear lid, so you can see and admire the beautiful embossing - and unlike the Baked Blush, this one doesn't come with a brush or mirror included, which does make the packing slightly more slimline and stylish, and again, I actually personally prefer this and leave the little brush out.

Then there's the Milani Cosmetics Moisture Lock Oil Infused Lip Treatment, and here I have to admit that I am completely new to lip oils. I have heard some many rave about lip oils, but just never gotten around to trying some, so very excited about this one. This one, formulated with the natural healing power of Jojoba, Avocado and Tsubaki Oil. As an added benefit, each if the 8 shades in the range is infused with different nutrient-dense oils that treat a specific concern. I tried the shade 07 Protecting Pomegranate, and it seriously has the most divine fruity scent. My lips are not usually dry, but do get drier in winter, and just one application of this, and my lips are left so soft. I love the huge sponge applicator, and the moisturisng ultra glossy finish and just a tint of the red shade. And I really love that it doesn't just sit on top of the lips like any other gloss, but that the oils absorbs into the lips to help treat and protect them. I am loving this Lip Oil, and will have to get my hands on a few extra shades and treatment options.

Next is the Milani Cosmetics Amore Matte Lip Crème, which are liquid-to-matte lip crème, that formula dries to a soft, velvety matte finish. And as promised, they are very pigmented and saturated, so you get a bold opaque colour with just one swipe. The doe applicator makes it easy to apply, and shortly after it dries to the matte look. As with most matte lipsticks, I do find that it can make you lips look and feel dry, so my tip is to use a good lip balm prior to applying it, and once that has absorbed, apply the lip crème. This lip crème also stays put quite well, I managed to get approx. 5-6 hours wear, even surviving a few drinks without transferring, but then it does start to flake and look dry. I do find that I need to use a makeup remover or micellar water or if I'm on the go, a makeup wipe, to remove it completely, as I find that re-applying, doesn't give the greatest result, again as you start out from having dry lips! I do love the look and wear of these, and the shade I tried, Fabulous, is a stunning dark berry-red shade, so whenever I wear it when I'm out and about, I simply carry a travel pack of wipes (which I usually do anyway), and its well worth it. They are available in a massive 23 different shades, so definitely something for everyone

The Milani Cosmetics Amore Matte Metallic Lip Crème, which are essentially the same liquid to matte lipsticks, but with tiny metallic shimmer particles that give the lips a subtle sheen, while still offering the same bold, intense colour payoff. It is also long wearing, promising up to 16 hours of wear. I don't quite feel that I can get that many hours, but usually manage 5+ hours before I feel I need to reapply (as above), but personally I also find that is very reasonable. These metallic versions are available in 15 shades, and I tried the colour Mattely In Love, which is a gorgeous red shade.

Speaking of removing these long-wearing lipsticks, of colours, of course Milani Cosmetics has thought about it with the Keep It Clean Longwear Lip Color Remover. This remover is made with safflower and grapeseed oil base with conditioners, and has a thick jelly consistency. And it is truly fantastic, just a tiny bit massaged into your lips, will remove stubborn lip colours, while still being very gentle, and the hydrating formula helps nourish and keep the lips soft and smooth. I I never knew I needed this, but now that I've tried it, I wouldn’t want to be without it.

Finally, there's the Milani Cosmetics Keep It Smooth Luxe Lip Treatment restores your dry lips and prevents lips from becoming chapped. The treatment contains Shea Butter to moisturise, well as coconut, olive, sweet almond, macadamia, jojoba, and argan oils to hydrate, while also promising to smoothe, soothe, comfort and minimise fine lines. The pale pink treatment comes in a cute little jar, and I have to admit that I would have preferred if it had come in a tube or stick, as it is simply easier to apply. But that said, it feels lovely on the lips, almost immediately absorbing, leaving the lips feeling soft and nourished, and without any greasiness. A great treatment to get your lips into shape, and to use before applying the long-wearing lipsticks.
