Meet your matte. Your fantasy matte. The matte that not only feels great (yes, you read that right – it’s actually comfy) but also lasts for hours and has “a-mazing Instagram selfie” written all over it. Infused with grape seed extract imported from Italy, this smear-proof lip soother delivers mega color that won’t budge, even after a close encounter with a cappuccino cup.
If you you love matte lipsticks that have great staying power and feel comfortable on the lips you are going to love the new Milani Cosmetics Matte Lipsticks that is apart of their new 2015 Spring Collection. I love matte lipsticks in fact I try to usually only wear matte lipsticks but let’s be honest if you have dry lips they can look very bad and feel very drying, but thankfully that’s not the case with these lipsticks. They feel lovely on the lips and don’t dry out my lips. These lipsticks are formulated with grape seed extract that Milani claims to have a smear proof, long lasting formula.
Much like other Milani lipsticks these matte lipsticks are packaged in a beautiful gold shiny tube. At the bottom of the base you can see the shade which I love. The shade name is also located at the bottom of the base.
These lipsticks are completely matte with no shimmer which is my favorite type of finish. Although they are matte they aren’t drying to the lips like a typical matte lipstick. I don’t feel the need to apply a lip balm underneath and my lips feel hydrated even when wearing these lipsticks all day. The pigmentation for these lipsticks are excellent for a drugstore brand. There are a few shades that require more layers to achieve an opaque finish but it’s really not a downside considering how moisturizing they feel. For those of you who are not a fan of fruity scented lip products will be happy to know these lipsticks have a very faint vanilla scent.
These matte lipsticks have phenomenal staying power. They last a good five hours on my lips if I don’t eat or drink anything. I actually decided to eat a greasy burger while wearing matte passion and I had to keep asking my husband if the color was still there every 5 minutes and it sure was. It did fade a little but it was obvious I was wearing a bright orange lipstick.
