Introducing Deborah Milano


Deborah Milano is an Italian cosmetics brand that has recently launched in the UK. I'd never actually heard of them until I was asked to review some of their products. I had quite a hard job choosing which products I wanted to try, but you know me, a lipstick girl at heart I had to give them a go! And I also realized I was lacking a bit in the eye shadow department, I love my naked palette but the beauty blogger in me always needs more!

I was a bit dubious at first as the lipstick shades weren't quite as I had expected and weren't really me. I usually opt for a brighter shade in a red or purple, although I do have quite a large collection of pink lipsticks... oops! I was still excited to try to see whether these could win me over. With 2 very different lipstick finishes, I was eager to try.

Milano Red Lipstick* in Shade 6

The Milano Red lipsticks are pigmented while still being moisturizing. Shade 6 is quite a light blue toned pink, with a slight frost finish. Definitely not a shade I would wear all the time, but a much more wearable shade that will fit in well with my collection. This one looks really nice with more of a statement eye.

Shine Creator Lipstick* in Shade 5

The Shine Creator Lipsticks are a lot more sheer than the Milano Red ones. Again this is a lot more wearable than the majority of lipsticks in my collection, I can't actually think of any sheer ones I own! It is very moisturizing so would be so easy to wear! Great for a day when you want that natural look. Shade 5 is a baby pink with a slight frost finish. Again, not something I'd wear that often but I'm sure I'll get some use out of it as it's very wearable.

Eye Design Quad Eyeshadow* in Shade 1

I was a bit sceptical of this palette at first, although the shades looked gorgeous I wondered whether they would be a bit chalky, but how wrong was I! The shadows are lovely and so pigmented. They blend nicely and this palette is the perfect one for a smokey eye! I lack a little in shades like this as I am usually picking up nudes and brown shades but I keep meaning to pick some up like this, so now I don't have to. Perfect for that statement smokey eye, or could possibly be mixed with more neutral shades to create more of a wearable smokey eye. I really like this!


After being a little unsure I was totally surprised at how lovely these products actually are. Very wearable, and lovely quality. I would love to expand my collection and get some more shades, perhaps even try some more of their products as I have definitely been won over! 

Have you tried any Deborah Milano products before?
