Milani HD Advanced Lip Color in Classy Nude: Swatch and Review

I won this lipstick in a giveaway that Milani held on their facebook. I asked to get a neutral shade and got it in the shade Classy Nude 102.

Milani describes it as a "3-in-1 lip color that nourishes, hydrates, and delivers a sheer wash of color with clarity and perfect radiant shine. It instantly comforts dry, chapped lips, and provides long-term moisturization"

Here's a swatch of the color.

I definitely agree about it being a sheer wash of color. Classy Nude is my perfect "my lips but better" color with shimmer. It's got a very balm-like texture and it smells a bit fruity, kind of like a mix between a lipstick smell and fruit. This is perfect for me if my lips were stained after a lip product or eating and I wanted a uniform nude look.

I found these to be average, it didn't take away moisture but I didn't think it added a whole lot of it.

It's packaged in a slim tube with a clicky twist at the end to twist up the product. The negative thing about it is how little product you get, 1.8 grams. It retails for $8.99 on the Milani website and I think I've seen it for $7 in CVS.


  1. Color looks good. But for that price, if Morgana's moisturize better, I'd definitely go for hers instead! Thanks for the review!

  2. Looks good, but pretty pricey for 1.8 grams!

  3. Your lip swatches are fantastic. If I sold lipsticks, I'd hire you to do lip swatches. How do you make them so... ... good? :(

  4. I'm pretty lucky, I live in California so I get perpetual sun and I take tons and tons of pictures. It's all trial and error and good weather!

  5. yeah that's the thing I don't like about it. Even MAC lipsticks are $15 for fourish grams

  6. You're welcome, but yeah the Milani lipstick isn't bad but I'd prefer other lip balms
