Review: Milani Black Cherry Lipstick

Hi, loves! I've been trying to hunt down some dark lipstick shades for the winter season. In my red lipsticks post a lot of you recommended 107 from the Kate Moss Rimmel collection. Sadly, last time I was at the drugstore I didn't find that shade in particular. I saw that a lot of makeup items were on sale. Among them were most of the Milani lipsticks. I picked up the shade "Black Cherry" for 3 dollars (a steal!) and a lip liner which ended up being almost identical.

PRODUCT OVERVIEW
  • The lipstick looks almost black on the tube, but the actual color is a deep berry red
  • The formula is very thin, it feels soft on my lips and doesn't dry them out
  • Just like most dark lipsticks, the color lasts a long time and leaves a stain
  • The lipstick feels great but since it's so thin it shows lip imperfections and sometimes settles into lip lines quite visibly
  • Note: I exfoliated my lips right before applying it because I read reviews that said it accentuated imperfections.

Bottom Line:  It's an average to good lipstick.  I really enjoyed wearing it, it's beautiful. The only thing keeping it from being a great lipstick is that it settles into lines. Although it's only noticeable from up close. Even at full price, the lipstick is still very affordable (prices vary but I've seen it retail for $5). It's a great budget alternative if you're looking for a vampy lipstick.

  5. Great value and I think it's actually quite wearable on you - the autumnal deep berry red also makes your teeth look super white :)

  11. It looks great on you! A lot of darker lip colours tend to settle into the lines... They can be tricky to wear!

    Thanks for the great review! Jo x amomentwithjo

  13. This lipstick looks absolutely stunning!! I have been obsessed with dark lips at the moment - I just bought a Make Up Forever lipstick in number 48 - definitely reminds me a bit of this Milani lipstick. So gorgeous!
