One of my most used lip products is the Milani Amore Matte Lip Creams. I first discovered the brand whilst on holiday in Canada. Most of the time, I end up reaching for it because I love the colour so much.
If you follow me on Instagram, you will know I recently lost my makeup bag, and in that bag was my favourite Milani Lip Cream. I had to re-purchase it right away because this is one product I actually cannot live without. The shade of my choice is Pretty, but I also ended up picking up Daring and Precious too since I love the formula so much.
I purchased mine from Beauty Bay for only £9 and it really is worth every penny. This is one of those formulas that instantly plumps my lips and gives them a fuller look. Every time I wear it, I get asked about the colour and brand. It’s probably my most worn shade on social media too which is why I feel like I need to rave about it so much!
This isn’t like your standard traditional liquid lipstick. It dries matte, but the formula is a light mousse texture which settles into the lips nicely. The applicator is the standard doefoot shape but it’s quite wide which enables even and plumper coverage. I really do think it’s down to the applicator and the way in which you apply the product that gives the illusion of plumper lips. I’ve very often said it’s like a lip job in a bottle for me.
This product wins for me hands down with price and quality and I love that it’s so affordable. I’m so predictable, I always opt for Rose Pinks or Mauve Nudes and although the 3 shades look very similar in colour they translate well on the lips and give off a very striking colour.
What Milani Says
The Amore Matte Lip Crème has arrived. This revolutionary, highly saturated liquid-to-matte formula dries to a soft, velvety finish for fuller-looking lips. Its double-sided, flexible plush applicator hugs the contours of lips, working to lock in bold, opaque color. Non-sticky, smooth and ready for all-night wear (up to 16 hours!) our Amore Matte Lip Crème is the ultimate transfer resistant kiss-me-matte.
A couple of things that I love about this lipstick is that it doesn’t transfer and the applicator really hugs the contours of the lips when you apply it. One coat is enough to give you full coverage, but I like to be extra and go with two. My face instantly lights up and looks so highlighted when I wear these shades, it’s just like magic!
It is long lasting up to about 5 hours, now the 16 hours that it claims and I do find myself touching this up at least once. This doesn’t really bother me too much as I always end up touching up after a big meal. The second point to note is, that because it is pigmented, you will need an oil based makeup remover to take this off, because the colour literally does not budge!
Finally, here’s how the shade ‘Pretty’ looks on me:
I’d love to know if you’ve tried these before and what your thoughts are?
