Review: Milani Buzz Worthy Lip Gloss in Bee Rich 03

I'm sure many of us pick things up on sale or clearance that we've never tried, never heard about and generally are reluctant to purchase but the price tips us over the edge. Or in this case, we (I) had a coupon to get so much money off the purchase of Milani products at CVS and this got me to that dollar amount.

Either way, the Buzz Worthy glosses were something I hadn't heard any buzz about (haha so funny). And although I'm not 100% sure that this line of glosses is getting discontinued, they are currently 75% off at CVS making them extremely affordable. For what it's worth, the product is still on the Milani website:

Lips will gleam with this extraordinary high shine, deliciously fragranced lip gloss that delivers a smooth and precise application with its easy to use slanted tip applicator. For moisturized and smooth lips, this gloss was formulated with Honey Extracts, Cranberry Seed Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil and enriched with Vitamins A & E. Available in 9 nourishing shades.

NET WT 0.17 OZ/4.86g

I picked up the shade Bee Rich which is a sheer red with no glitter/shimmer (the other shades in the line, aside from a clear seemed very glittery).
The applicator is kind of cool looking. It's a slant tip but also very long. The tube itself is fairly simple though the metallic accents are kind of nice and not over the top. The coloring changes with each gloss color. Obviously, since this one is red, it has metallic red accents.
The gloss itself is kind of a gel texture. It's kind of sticky upon application but is not sticky on the lips. I was surprised actually to find it rather moisturizing (my guess is all the vitamins added do help a bit). And guys the smell of this is awesome. It smells exactly like watermelon jolly ranchers and it's quite strong. Thankfully, I love the smell of that artificial watermelon, but if you don't, you might want to pass on these even though the gloss is pretty excellent for the price.
The lowest swatch is blended out and the top is layered a bit. Since this isn't goopy or especially runny, you should be able to get away with building it up to a nice juicy red. I prefer just a thin layer to add some shine and tiny bit of color to my lips.

Have you tried this line and thought it "buzz worthy"?

Thanks so much for this review. I keep looking at these...and looking...but I'm always scared of being disappointed. So it's great to know that you like 'em! I'm such a sucker for a nice sheer red gloss...looks like I'll be picking this up soon (with my 2 extra bucks!). :D

That's pretty cool - a bit sheer but that's good if you're using a darker color :)

@R: I was the same way with the sale with these, but the coupon pushed me over the edge and I'm glad I got it since this particular shade went the fastest at my areas CVS stores - probably since it's the only non-glitterbomb in the line!

@ndoodles: The sheerness is perfect for me since my lips are pigmented, so it just gives them a little oomph. To tell you the truth, I'm pretty self conscious if I wear a lip color too bright so this is perfect. =)

I grabbed one too since they're so cheap, I really like it. Nice consistency and a great sheer pink, perfect for me. They had a gold one that I bought for a friend, I really want to see what it looks like on.
