Milani has done it again. Just when I thought I had all the lipstick a girl could possibly need, the Milani Color Statement Moisture Matte Lipsticks entered my life. Matte lip products are my favorite, but I always hesitate to try new matte lipsticks on the market. Finding the perfect matte is always challenging, and it’s our first instinct to think “dry” when we think matte lipstick. Or maybe it’s just me. As soon as I applied the first Milani Moisture Matte, I knew it would change my entire perception. They are so hydrating! Not once throughout the days of wearing them did I ever have to worry about the lipstick drying out my lips. Honestly, they felt quite moisturized. And this is coming from someone who constantly has to apply chapstick.
Oh I didn’t even get to the best part yet. The colors stay put! From the lightest nude to the boldest red, all of the shades last for hours on the lips. There is nothing that annoys me more than reapplying lipstick while I’m out because I find half of it on my coffee cup, but the Milani Color Statement Moisture Matte Lipsticks do not budge. Even better than the staying power, is the range of shades to choose from. I was so impressed by the spectrum of colors they included in this collection. I firmly believe there is a shade for everyone. On most days I like to keep my look simple, so shades like Matte Innocence, Matte Naked, and Matte Blissful are perfect. But when I want to kick it up a notch for the evening, there is plenty of color packed in the other shades.
“soft whisper of pink nude.” I thought this shade would wash out my complexion, but it’s the perfect nude. It contains just the right amount of pink.
Which shade is your favorite? xo
