Hey everyone! So I was at Dollar Tree the other day to pick up some V05 conditioners for cowashing and out of the corner of my eye I saw some Milani products in the makeup section! I went over to have a look and there were a bunch of the HD Advanced Lip Colors that came out a few years ago. I’m guessing they’ve been discontinued because I haven’t seen them in any drugstores lately but when they first came out they were about $7 each. I never got any when they first came out but I did remember seeing swatches and positive reviews of them. If you don’t know, everything at Dollar Tree is exactly one dollar so I was SUPER excited and promptly snatched up one of each color they had. And I must say, I am glad that I did.

They come in a slim black tube with a twist-click bottom. The packaging is very sturdy and feels like something you would get from a department store brand.

These have sheer to medium coverage. They have enough pigment that you can tell you have something on but are sheer enough to be very wearable. They  are  also very smooth and moisturizing. It does not feel like a lipstick at all more like a lip balm. These could not be more comfortable on the lips.

I love all of these but my faves are Rich Caramel, Vivacious Fuchsia and Sweet Grape. Rich Caramel is the perfect nude for my skin tone, Vivacious Fuchsia is a hot pink that is sheer enough to wear every day, and Sweet Grape is a light purple with gold shimmer that doesn’t look frosty at all.

Seriously though, at one dollar these are a STEAL!  You seriously can not beat the price. I have paid 15  bucks for lippies that I didn’t like as much as these. If there’s a Dollar Tree in your area I suggest you snap these up while you can! If you’ve tried these let me know what you think!
