MILANI HD Advanced Lip Color in Ignition (113)

Milani HD Advanced Lip Color Ignition Dollar Tree MILANI HD Advanced Lip Color in Ignition (113)I don’t know if it’s just me, but when I notice a stray brow hair, I immediately get the must pluck urge. It will bother me to no end. This happened the other day and of course I was without any of my many tweezers on hand. So I ran into nearby Dollar Tree to grab a cheap one (excessive, I know). That’s when I saw it – Milani HD Advanced Lip Color… at the dollar store? I’m not sure how it happened, but I’ll take it! After sorting through two racks of a frosty pink shade, I came upon Ignition (113).

Ignition is a bright coral-y pink. It’s like watermelon jolly rancher in a lipstick – and fittingly, that’s also exactly what it smells like. It’s not quite sheer, but does allow a bit of your natural lip color to show through. Wear time isn’t spectacular, but it’s not any worse than most light, semi-glossy formulas. For those of you who don’t have easy access to Milani, the brand plans to expand in the US and internationally in 2014.

Between work, graduate school interviews, and travel, life has been a little hectic lately.  My passion for this blog and connecting with all of you is as strong as ever (I’m overflowing with post ideas and plans, products to share, etc.) – I just haven’t been able to dedicate as much time as I want to it lately. Realistically, it’ll probably be about three weeks until things calm down, but then I’ll be back in full-force!

    Hey Catherine, oh I have the same problem with brow hair, though most of the time I just tweeze before bedtime (sometimes it’s not a good idea, especially when it’s late. That’s when I over-tweeze). You definitely found a gem here! What an adorable shade on you!

    I hope things will calm down a bit soon. Sounds like you’re juggling with a lot of demanding stuff in your life now, but it’ll all be worth it!

      Thanks so much, Sunny! ♥

    That’s such a pretty color! I’m the same way about tweezing…once I spot one, it has to come out! I hope you’ll get to enjoy some down time soon–you sound hyper busy!!

      Thanks, Martha! ♥

    Hi Catherine, don’t have to apologize about the slow down in posts. We all have real lives to attend to and we understand. That said, this one looks so sweet on you!

      Thanks, Lily! I think I sort of worried that if I slowed down at all, all the work I’ve put into the blog would go away and everyone reading it would disappear, but I’m realizing that’s not the case, which feels like such a relief. ♥
