Product Review: Amore Milani Matte Lip Crème

Milani Amore Matte Lip Cremes: (l to r) Embrace, Beloved, Lust

I recently picked up some of the Milani Matte Lip Cremes and finally had the time to play in makeup and wear them last weekend. It wasn't the easiest to find them in my area, and ultimately I was only able to get 3 of the 8 colors that are available. At the price of $2.99 (yes they were on sale in CVS) I'm not surprised they were so hard to find, however I was hoping the makeup gods were going to be in my favor.

Official Description: 
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, the limited edition Amore Matte Lip Creme is the ultimate transfer resistant kiss-me-matte.

Initial Thoughts: 
I picked up 3 of the colors in the middle of the series Lust (a rose pink), Beloved (a brown pink) and Embrace (a berry plum). So far I have worn Embrace and Beloved.

The application was very smooth and the color is very opaque. The applicator definitely makes it easier to perfectly apply the lip color even if you choose not to use a liner. The texture is very nice and they have an amazing vanilla-candy like smell that I enjoy.

I'm normally not a HUGE fan of most matte lip products,  however this didn't leave my lips feeling dry at all. It almost felt like I wasn't wearing anything at all. I didn't feel the need to keep checking my lips to make sure they were still on. And there wasn't that crumbling/crackling feeling you sometimes get when using matte lip products. They are long lasting, if you're going to be eating and drinking they will definitely fade some. While the product description says that they won't transfer, that's not completely true.

Overall Reaction:
I think they are great. I will be hunting down the 5 other colors I don't have at all the CVS's in the city before I resort to buying the rest of them online. They are a winner in my book and I will be wearing them out this fall.
