Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Uptown Mauve

Purple….you have won my heart.

And that is why I am the proud owner of Uptown Mauve.

It’s actually not as mauve as one would think it is. It’s a plum-berry with strong purple tones.

In natural light:






On my lips it’s a gorgeous berry creme with no shimmer. I get maybe 4-5 hours of wear time without having to reapply. There’s no unpleasant or overbearing smell, and the product feels creamy on my lips.

I think this would work best on medium and darker skintones.

    Pretty! :-D I’m not sure where they got ‘mauve’ from, though… Still, the mysteries of lipstick naming are best left unexamined sometimes ;-)

  2. Mauve? How is that mauve? It’s so berry! And what a gorgeous shade of berry!

  3. Indeed! Totally misnamed. Lovely shade though.

  4. So pretty! Definitely not a mauve, but this definitely looks like a color I need to add to my collection. :)
