Review | Deborah Milano*

Although this product was gifted to me, all views and opinions are that of my own.

I was recently contacted by Deborah Milano cosmetics, a luxurious Italian cosmetic company who want to bring their products to the UK.
They asked if i wanted to test out one of their lipsticks and share them with you!
Originating in 1903, they sure know a thing or two about make-up!

All the names of the products are in Italian which gives them an exciting luxury feel before I've even ordered!
I was gifted IL Rossetto Lipstick, which you can find HERE, it retails for £5.90 and is the cheapest within the lipstick range.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to choose a shade or lipstick that came through - and I don't normally do lipsticks that are on the red spectrum. But actually, I'm kind of happy about this as I've tried something completely new and I actually liked it. Sometimes you need some help delving into new territory!

The packaging isn't anything ridiculously fancy - but the red coloring of it gives it quite a deep expensive feel and it feels quite nice in your hands.
Its branded with the companies logo so you're instantly drawn back to them!

The pigment of the lipstick was incredibly vibrant from just one simple swipe on my wrist!
The website describes the lipstick as;
Soft, creamy lipstick enriched with Vitamins A, C and E. Leaves the lips dazzlingly shiny and perfectly moisturized. With UVA and UVB filters.
I really love the fact that it has built in UV features, even though a lot of lipsticks do these days, its a great drawing point! It was incredibly creamy and has quite a heavy texture on your lips, it does make them look a lot healthier and more moisturized and I could feel this almost instantly.
The colour is beautiful and vibrant - no sort of wishy washy stuff you get with some cheaper lipsticks and I really loved that about the lipstick.
It blends across my lips really well and doesn't clump in parts.

My only criticism is that it doesn't last very long - I found myself topping it up on the hour!

Over all, the product has really grown on me, and for an evening or event lipstick, I think that this is an absolute winner.
I think that Deborah Milano will go far over the pond here in the UK and they've already got my sales!
And James liked it to!
