Last fall, I reviewed and swatched several shades from Milani’s new Amore Matte Lip Creme line here. The matte liquid lipstick trend is still going strong so Milani has added 10 more limited edition colors to their lineup this fall.
I received 4 new shades:
- 28 Darling: pink-beige, almost the color of my lips
- 31 Glamour: deep bronze
- 35 Attraction: blue-red
- 36 Magnetic: Merlot, deep red-plum
I photographed the swatches while they were still wet and then again after they dried.
The colors are absolutely stunning. In fact, I think that’s what Milani does best: great color! They are highly pigmented, and the color stays on. In fact, I use micellar water to remove them, and it takes several strokes to get it off. The Amore Lip Cremes really stay put on your lips unless you’re eating a lot of greasy food. Milani claims that they last up to 16 hours. I haven’t worn them that long, but they do last and last.
Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme lipsticks are not hydrating but they’re not exceedingly drying either. I think the darker shades are a little more drying than the lighter ones that I’d describe as neutral: neither hydrating nor drying. So if your lips are not desperately dry like mine, you’ll have no trouble wearing these matte lipsticks. As with any matte lipstick, exfoliate first to prevent the formula from clinging to any dry patches.
The slim applicator makes them quite easy to apply. On older lips like mine, I think using a lipliner gives a crisper outline, but for most of you, just line with the applicator and go. Here’s Darling (sorry it’s such a grainy photo) applied without a liner.
Truth be told, I’m usually often too lazy to find a universal lipliner so I just apply it with the applicator and go. But you can see in this nighttime photo, that my line was off a bit. The shade is pretty great, though.
If you’re a fan of matte liquid lipsticks, definitely give some of these Milani Amore Matte Lip Cremes a try. I think the shades are unparalleled. Right now, there are 28 shades in total.
