Metallic lipsticks are definitely the new rage in the lipstick universe and are becoming as hyped as matte liquid lipsticks. I have heard a lot about the Milani Cosmetics Amore Mattallics Lip Cremes and I was really excited to try them as they are matte AND metallic! Recently, I have been trying to be a responsible adult (cue eye-roll emoji) and I only purchased only two of these lipsticks to try! I really regret not buying all of the shades they have in this formula.
Review of the Milani Cosmetics Amore Mattallics Lip Cremes
The lipsticks come in a pretty standard sized bottle similar to the Kylie Cosmetics or the Colourpop Cosmetics liquid lipsticks. The lipstick itself has a gold cap with gold writing on the bottle. It comes with a more slanted applicator than the standard doe foot applicator of Kylie Cosmetics or Colourpop lipsticks. This applicator is nice for applying product to the centre of the lips but does not really have an advantage over the standard doe foot applicator.
These lipsticks are sold on the Milani Cosmetics website for $8.99USD. I purchased mine from Discount Beauty for $19.95 AUD as the Milani Cosmetics Australia website did not have the shades in stock. The lipsticks are very reasonable in terms of price point when compared to other liquid lipsticks that are of the same volume such as the Colourpop Ultra Metallics which are $6 USD.
The lipsticks have a fairly strong vanilla type scent, that you may either love or hate. I do not mind the scent at all and I do find that after the lipstick dries down, it becomes relatively unnoticeable.
These lipsticks are extremely pigmented and the formula is thin yet mousse like. They apply very nicely with the doe foot applicator. These lipsticks are pigmented enough that there is no need to use a lip liner underneath unlike some other metallic lipsticks. They are very easy to layer also for more coverage if needed and don’t crumble or become tacky. I really like the fact that they dry down to a nearly complete powder finish.
These are really comfortable to wear and are pretty long lasting as far as metallic lipsticks go. As they do dry down to a powder finish they are transfer proof. Throughout the day they fade evenly and you can also easily reapply without having any layering issues.
I really like the formula and how these lipsticks look. They have a metallic shine but with a matte finish! They are definitely the best of both lipstick finishes.
Swatches of the Milani Cosmetics Amore Mattallics Lip Creme
I have swatched the two shades that I have purchased on my arm as well as on my lips. Please keep in mind that the appearance of these shades may vary with skin tones.
This is a gorgeous purple shade which is oh so pretty!!! Uggh, this shade is so gorgeous that it has already been stolen by my sister and I need to buy it again!
This is a hot pink shade which is really bright and pretty pigmented for such a bright shade. I usually find that bright shades sometimes appear streaky!
I will definitely be purchasing more of these lipsticks soon and will update this post accordingly with new swatches!
