Milani Coral Bora Bora Color Perfect Lipstick Review

Milani Coral Bora-Bora swatch

Weekly Cheap Secret:

After chatting with BotO‘s Dee, I decided to bust out some of my favorite Milani and orange lipsticks to swatch. I love orange lipsticks, even before they became a fad 😉 And I love Milani lip products. Unfortunately, I haven’t found any local vendors that carry the line since I moved. I hate this. It really is a great line. Here’s my review and swatch of Milani Color Perfect Lipstick in Coral Bora-Bora.

Milani Color Perfect Lipstick Coral Bora Bora

The Color: Coral Bora-Bora is a medium peachy coral with silver frost. This is a great “everyday” peach, not as orange as most corals, and it is a good balance of pink. I love this shade because it has a late 1950’s vibe. I need a nail color to match 😉

The Formula: The formula is opaque and one coat does it. It’s a good formula for the price. It isn’t long-wearing (I’m not a fan of long-wearing formulas anyways). This Milani formula is longer wearing than a gloss or their moisturizing formulas. The formula itself isn’t drying. However, the frost in this formula may emphasize lip flakies and imperfections. Like with all lipsticks, make sure lips are exfoliated before applying. Milani Color Perfect Lipsticks are scented, almost floral. This may bother some wearers.

The Packaging: The packaging is good, a “gold” plastic. Cap doesn’t fall off in my purse, etc. The actual lipstick is fauceted and I like that, reminds me of Sisley.

So, here’s me wearing the lipstick. I’m wearing super minimal makeup: brown cake eyeliner, mascara, and Nars Blush in Orgasm. I think it’s a good summer/spring “everyday” or work-friendly look.

Milani Color Perfect Lipstick retails for about $5 and are available at Cherry Culture.

    1. Where do they hide? In Nashville/Middle TN area, they were all the CVS, Walgreens and Target. Can’t find them here. I think I’ve stopped at every drugstore and Target in 100 mile radius 🙂

  1. Holy gods that color looks great on you!

    I’m so glad that you’re swatching the Milani’s! I was thinking of you today, actually, because I braved the zombies at K-Mart once again to pick up another Milani lipstick! This time I scored the HD lipstick in Rich Carmel… and I LOVE it. The texture is divine… the only problem is that the colors that my Zombie-Mart carries is so limited. I see an order from Cherry Culture in my near future. 😀

    Anyway, thanks for introducing me to Milani–and thanks for added more swatch/reviews! I’m looking forward to them all!

    1. Haha, when your target audience is zombies, I bet you don’t bother bringing in the entire line 😉 I love the HD lipstick, perfect Dior Serum Lip Color dupe.

      I’d be happy to even find a zombie Big K that carries the line, even limited. I’m at the point now where I’m buying based on on-line swatches and many of the colors aren’t swatched…another reason I’m swatching!
