Milani Cosmetics, the leader in multicultural color cosmetics, will continue to outshine expectations come 2015 with the introduction of seven revolutionary additions to its portfolio of cutting-edge makeup. Inspired by the latest trends of metallic shine and subtle mattes seen on the catwalks of Milan, Milani will be providing women everywhere with what they need to interpret these runway looks while reflecting their individuality. In support of this launch, Milani has announced a nationwide contest, “Win a Dream Trip to Italy,” which started on January 1, 2015.
