The internet is flooded with the liquid lipstick trend and I am all about liquid lipsticks. My make up drawer consists of all brands that sell “liquid lipsticks” to name a few NYX, Colourpop, Kylie Cosmetics, Give me Glow Cosmetics, Chambor, Lakme, Miss Claire, Nyx, Pac Cosmetics and the list goes on. I have tried and tested most liquid lipsticks and sadly Colourpop sells the most drying matte liquid lipstick. No doubt, Colourpop is affordable and covers a wide range of shades that is difficult to find in other brands. This is the reason why I have not stopped purchasing from Colourpop. But, honestly speaking, the drying matte formula gets on my nerves which force me to keep searching for that comfortable matte formula. I like Kylie’s liquid lipstick a lot but let’s get real; spending $29.00 every time is not ‘Me’. I have got quite a few from Kylie, but I can’t afford buying them all. I was always curious about Milani Cosmetics and thought of giving it a try as it hardly cost $9.00 and I got mine from target for some $6.99 odd bucks. I bought the shade “Devotion” and damn the moment I applied it, I kicked myself so hard because I just love the shade and formula. It pinched me that I bought only one…
It’s time to put your lipsticks on notice. 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.
How to Apply-
Using the Amore Matte Lip Crème’s double-sided plush applicator, glide the liquid matte across your lips smoothly, starting at the cupid’s bow in a criss-cross pattern, then along the outer corners of lips, and the bottom of lip. Next, fill in the rest of the lips as if you are connecting-the-dots.

My Experience with Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme-
Soon after I purchased “Devotion” I went ahead and splurged on two more shades – “Gorgeous and Obsession”. Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme has the best formula that not only glides easily but indeed gives a soft, velvety finish without drying out the lips. The shades are highly pigmented and one stroke is enough to give you fuller looking lips. When I applied Devotion, I thought this is going to be just another red shade. To my surprise, ‘Devotion’ is such a beauty for a red liquid lipstick. Its near to my perfect go to red lipstick. My second favourite shade is “Gorgeous” it’s a beautiful hot pink but yet so unique. “Obsession” is a purple-y shade and will look awesome on medium to dusky skin. All three shades will suit any skin color – fair to dusky. The staying power of this liquid lipstick is easily 6-7hrs and tends to disappear from the center of the lips after 5 hrs. This is a common problem with every liquid lipstick. With eating and drinking they tend to disappear from the center. However, you can always re-apply and it doesn’t look flaky like Colourpop liquid matte’s. The wand of this matte lip creme works perfectly with the liquid lipstick. You don’t need to be a pro to apply it, simpy follow the instructions as mentioned above on “How to apply”. Every matte lipstick demands well hydrated and smooth base before application so do exfoliate before applying it. One last thing I want to mention is that it doesn’t transfer on things, I have experienced this with other liquid mattes but not Milani.
