I first became familiar with the brand, Deborah Milano, through Twitter and I recently had the opportunity to review one of their lipsticks.  I opted for a lipstick from their Shine Creator collection.  The shade I chose was number 8, 'Rossetto' -- purely because the colour was such a rich pink and I always love to go for a bright pink lipstick.  On the website, it states that this is a light-weight, luminous lipstick which combines the shine of a lip gloss with the comfort of a lipstick and the moisturising properties of a lip balm.

The first thing I noticed upon application was the scent.  I really loved it!  The scent is a 'good-enough-to-eat' kind of smell.. like a combination of cocoa butter and honey.  I much prefer this to a fruity-smelling cosmetic -- I think it's far less overpowering & doesn't leave me prone to headaches.  And if I'm giving my lips a top-up throughout the day, it's a smell that I won't grow tired of.

Next, the consistency.  It definitely did strike me as a lip gloss -- the texture isn't quite so 'matte' as the other lipsticks that I own.  It has more of a sticky consistency and I found that it did need quite a few coats to get the full potential from the colour.  It does have a glossy finish and the colour is really appealing after around 3+ coats, but that completely depends upon how bright you want your lips to look -- I personally like very neon/vibrant lips so I go a little overboard when it comes to coats of lipstick.  Despite how many coats I applied, the lipstick still sat well on my lips and didn't sink into the cracks, which is always positive.  I think my only real negative would have to be the packaging.  It's a little bit bulky for my personal taste.  The packaging of their 'Atomic Red Mat Lipstick' would definitely be more likely to draw me in if I were to see their lipstick collection on the shelf in a store.  However, you know a product has done well when the only complaint I can make is the packaging!

All-in-all, I think that the Deborah Milano Shine Creator Lipstick sets out to do everything that it claims to.  The application is in the form of a lipstick, the texture is like that of a lip gloss and when you rub your lips together, it really does feel like a lip balm.  Testing out this lipstick has certainly left me intrigued to try lipsticks from their other ranges, especially to see how they compare as regular lipsticks.  This Shine Creator lipstick will most likely be popping up in outfit posts from now on and will be a new little addition to my everyday handbag.
