Fellow bloggers, I have a question for you. Do you ever buy products and then never review them? That’s exactly what happened to me with Milani Dolci Bronze Collection that was released last year around this time. I did manage to cover several pieces in the collection, plus write a brief overview with swatches, but some of these never made it to the blog. I know it’s super late at this point, but I thought I’d share a few pictures and my overall thoughts anyway. Who knows, Milani might re-release these at one point if they haven’t already! [I wrote this post in advance, so they might already have. And if they did, YAY!]
Anyhow, this blog post is mostly for your viewing pleasure. While these particular products are not available anymore, it could still help someone decide if these unusual shades could work with their coloring. To refresh your memory, Milani Dolci Bronze Collection consisted of five pieces: a matte bronzer duo, an eyeshadow single, a nail polish, a lipstick, and a lip gloss. In this overview I wanted to show you the latter two.
Milani lipsticks are some of the best within drugstore price range, and I have amassed a nice collection in my stash. I am partial to their neutrals, especially Naturally Chic and Rose Femme, but I also love experimenting with trendy colors I normally wouldn’t risk buying from high end brands. Rose gold and bronze are totally within my comfort zone for eyes and cheeks, but not for the lips.
Milani Color Statement Lipstick in 47 Dolci is officially described as Bronzed Rose Gold with Pearl finish, but to me it looks like a beautiful warm-toned shimmery caramel. Warm-toned lipsticks look especially good with my complexion, but I bet this color would really work well for tan and dark skin tones.
Milani Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss in 15 Dolci is officially described as Rose Gold with Gold Pearl shimmer, and while I think it’s pretty accurate, I would like to add that it can also be called a bronzed rose gold with metallic finish. If you love Milani lipsticks, you will love their glosses, too. They are very comfortable to wear, the color actually shows up on the lips, and the formula doesn’t contain fragrance, which is rare for drugstore makeup.
A year later I still use the lipstick occasionally, but only on its own. While I love the dramatic mirror-like effect from wearing both the lipstick and the lip gloss together, the lipstick alone has enough shimmer for everyday wear without looking too festive.
Do you remember Milani Dolci Bronze Collection from last year? Did you buy any Dolci Bronze products? Have you ever tried wearing bronze or rose gold makeup? Let me know in the comments below!
