wearing the new Milani Power Lip enduring & Moisturizing Gloss in Mango Tango
Yeah, I’m turning into *that* girl — the one who applies a glossy lip stain ideal before bed just to see if it’ll still be there in the morning.
I did it the other night with one of Milani’s new Power Lip enduring & Moisturizing Gloss Stains, and El Hub was like, “Why are you wearing lipstick to bed? got a hot date?”
The Milani Power Lips collection, new for spring 2014
“First,” I replied, “it’s not a lipstick. It’s a stain. and second, yes, babe, Tabs and I are going as soon as you fall asleep.”
Lol! Som om. Tabs is a total night owl, whereas I’ve normally zonked out by 11. I could never hang…but if I could, I’m sure any of these eight stains could hang with me.
These glossy lip stains are DOPE! They cling to lips like I cling to outdated ’90s references.

So, back to that bedtime test I was talking about, the following morning, I caught a look of my reflection in the coffee pot and saw the stain from the shade I’d applied before bed (07 Mango Tango).
That’s an 8-hour wear time! — assuming you’re just dreaming about RyGos and mumbling in your sleep. add munchies and meals to the mix, however, and the wear time drops to 4-6.
Still not bad at all, considering that each tube is only $6.49.
Jeg liker disse. They remind me of YSL glossy Stains, only not…
I mean, they’re the same idea — they look and feel like shiny glosses but eventually wear down to satin lip stains — big come in absolutely different packaging.
The YSL glossy stains come in a tube with a doe-foot applicator, while the Milani products come in a click pen tube with a brush applicator.
I don’t mind the click pen, in this case, but I’m not exactly crazy about it. I think it’s a little a lot more challenging to use, like to line the edges of my lips, than YSL’s doe foot, in part because it’s tough to control how much product it applies. I can’t, for example, think of using it in the passenger seat as we’re driving to the movies.

01 Red Control
04 Pink Lemonade
07 Mango Tango
06 Strawberry Sugar
02 Cabaret Blend
08 Creamy Cafe
03 Raspberry Tart
But the formula itself? veldig bra. You get a ton of pigment for $6.49, and a little goes a long way.
I think that these also feel slightly thicker, sticker and heavier on my lips than YSL’s glossy Stains, but they’re still comfy and quite moisturizing.
The faint buttery flavor and scent, I could do without, but it’s not a big whoop — again, considering the price.
I think all of the colors here are fab. I like 05 Macaroon and 08 Creamy cafe on days when I want a lot more of a nude lip look, and 07 Mango Tango and 04 Pink Lemonade on days when I want to wear something bright.
PRICE: $6.49 each
AVAILABILITY: Coming this February to drugstores (CVS for sure) and also online

The English Teacher
I’m reaching my breaking bad breaking point, so I Netflixed a cute motion picture last night called The English Teacher. I wasn’t expecting much because it only gets a 42% on Rotten Tomatoes, but I’ve always liked Julianne Moore, who stars in it, and I figured that if it’s really terrible, I’ll just turn it off.
The movie’s about a small-town high school English teacher (Julianne Moore) and the chaos that ensues when one of her former students, a writer now living in new York, returns to town.
It actually [turned out to be] much better and funnier than I expected. A good pick if you’re in the mood for something light.
