Milani Hot Pink Rage is a part of Milani’s Color Statetement matte lipstick collection. Personally, out of the whole collection, this is my favorite color. It has warm undertones and it is a bright, yet very wearable hot pink. The name Hot Pink Rage really suits this lipstick. It is great if you are in the mood for a statement lip, if you are looking to create a girly look or if you are looking for a perfect pink to pair with your neutral eye.
The formula is the same as other Milani’s from this collection. It is super pigmented, super matte. I did experience some tagging on the lips while applying, so beware of the. maybe wear a lip balm or a lip primer under it to reduce the tagging. The color lasts for about 5-6 hours. Transfer is very minimal, but if you eat, it will move a little, so reapplication is needed. Also, keep in mind, that this lipstick has an incredible staining power. I have never experienced anything like this before. You need some serious makeup remover (or I always recommend olive oil) to remove it completely.
It does have a smell. I would describe it as a freshy-fruity smell that is not noticeable once it is on your lips.
Overall, I love this lipstick and when I am all out, I will be repurchasing.
Who can pull it off: almost any skin tone as long as you like the bright pink lips on you. Having warm undertones in your skin tone will definitely help pulling it off, even though it is not necessary.
