Usually, I am very unlucky when it comes to finding limited edition products. But, this one time I would say I was really lucky. I spotted the new Milani Fall 2016 LE Amore Matte Lip Cremes at my local Walgreens.
(Adorable) was the first shade I purchased from Milani’s Amore lip creme collection. Milani, has thus far released 37 shades in their Amore Matte Lip Creme collection.
Milani released 10 new limited edition Fall shades. The collection consist of mostly red,burgundy shades and three nude shades. I picked up the shades; Glamour, Magnetic and Dearest. I skipped over the red shades and nudes.
I’ll start with the lip creme that I was most disappointed in, the shade Dearest is described as a deep merlot. Dearest is the darkest shade that is available in the Fall 2016 collection.
Let us get on to the formula of this specific shade, it is just plan horrible. From the beginning of application I could tell this shade was going to be a bit hard to work with. As I applied it to my lips, it was patchy from the word go. When I got over the patchy part of it all. Mind you, I do own a shade from Kat Von D that is patchy. That shade I am able to work with, this however I couldn’t work with. If you tried to rub your lips together the colour would lift. It was the weirdest thing, that wasn’t even worst part. The worst part was when I stretched my lips the shade just started cracking and flaking off my lips.
I have heard people talk about liquid lipsticks in this way, I was truly shocked and disappointed. Lets just say I now have the t-shirt. Take it from me and stay clear of this specific shade,it is beautiful and all but just doesn’t work. Below you can see in the little Snapchat clip what I mean.
I even documented it on my Snapchat–> follow me on there if you don’t already, it’s stephndstuff.
Next we have the shade Glamour, which is the fourth shade in the collection. I think one of the two metallic finishes in the collection. Glamour is a beautiful pearl bronze metallic shade on the lips. There are no annoying glitter particles on your lips. My eyes immediately drawn to the shade, I have nothing like it in my liquid lipstick collection. This shade definitely did not disappoint. I love this lip cremes formula. It wears really well on my lips, it is not patchy or flaky. It is a very different experience from Dearest.
If you are not fully sold on metallic lips, I would suggest you give thus shade a go.
Last, but certainly not the least… the shade Magnetic it is described as a pearl cranberry . It is the second darkest shade in the collection. It is the other metallic finish shade in the collection. As soon as I applied Magnetic to my lips all I could think about was Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick in the shade Sad Girl. Even swatching the two shades side my side you could barely tell the difference It applies just as good as Glamour, I will say that you do have to work with this one a little.
It can apply a little patchy but, it is nothing like Dearest. What one does have to keep in mind with darker/berry shades, they do tend to be a little patchy when applied to the lips. So, you kind of have to expect that if that makes any sense.
Finally, these are highly saturated liquid-to-matte formula that dries to a soft, velvety finish for fuller-looking lips. I love the double-sided, flexible plush applicator it is perfect as it hugs the contours of lips. Let us not forget to mention Milani have some of the best smelling lip products out there.
Milani, claim that these can get about 16 hour wear from these. Unfortunately, I did not get that many hours wear with these. Dearest, did not even last 15 minutes on my lips.
You can find the display at Walgreens, these are now available on the Milani website. If you are in Texas you can find them at H-E-B
They retail for 7.99 each at Walgreens. On the Milani website they retail for $8.99
I definitely will pick more shades from the regular Amore Matte Creme collection. I would love to the the metallics, but sadly people just think it is ok to just swatch the products. Wish Milani would change their packaging and not just have a little sticker to help keep the product from not being opened.
*Some of the shades are vegan, you can have a look on the Milani website to see which ones are vegan or not..
