naturals and browns

Even if you love a bright lip like I do, there is ALWAYS a place for a good neutral lipstick in the beauty addict’s makeup bag!

I received the fourth and final batch of Milani Color Statement Lipsticks and Lip Liners – the Naturals and Browns – from the company/PR firm about a week and a half ago, and yet again, I was not disappointed in the formula or wear of this line.

Let’s just jump right in, then?!

Here’s swatches of the lip liners:

Teddy Bare reminds me of a cream lipstick version of Spice lip liner.

Double Espresso:

Double Espresso is a deep brown pearl.

Overall, I can’t pick a favorite from these shades, because naturals and browns are always a win for my skin tone. Double Espresso and Chocolate Berries are the daring picks for me against my complexion, but they aren’t unflattering. Naturally Chic, Nude Creme and Dulce Caramelo are great to pair with bold eye makeup looks. Teddy Bare and Candied Toffees are great for neutral work appropriate looks. Bronze Beauty and D’Oro add some shimmer/metallic fun – these two are higher up in my list of favorites from the naturals and browns, I suppose!

These lipsticks retail for $5.49, and are available in CVS, Walmart, Target, Walgreens and Kmart.
