I have been in love with the metallic lip trend but was very nervous to try it. I finally gave it a try with the Milani Cosmetics Amore Matte Metallic Lip Creme and I am obsessed! I’m reviewing these products today for this edition of Lipstick Fridays.

Metallic Lip

I’ve been eyeing the metallic lip trend for a while. I’ve seen it all over Instagram and have been really eager to try it out myself. When my local Walgreens stocked the Amore Matte Metallic Lip Creme from Milani Cosmetics, I had to give them a try.

Milani Cosmetics Amore Matte Metallic Lip Creme

Milani Cosmetics is a cruelty-free cosmetics brand that draws inspiration from the style of Milan, Italy for women who love color and experimenting with new looks.

Fun Fact: Milani Cosmetics was launched in 2002 by founders Ralph Bijou and Laurie Minc.

The Amore Matte Metallic Lip Cremes are boldly pigmented matte lipsticks with a metallic finish.

The lipstick retails for $9.00 and can be purchased online or at drugstores that carry the brand. I found them at my local Walgreens.

I have a ton of shades because I keep going back for more (clearly I really like these). But for this post, I’ll be reviewing the shades Overdramatic (a metallic rose) and Making Me Matte (a bronze brown).

Packaging

The lip cremes came in a clear tube with a gold top and detailing. I’m a fan of lip packaging that is clear so you can get a sense of the true product color before purchasing. Also, metallic colors just look so cool!

Application and Finish

The applicator is a doe foot applicator that’s flat on the sides. I really liked the wand because it was very easy to smoothly apply the product.

The finish was very pigmented, smooth, and matte. However, my lips didn’t feel dry at all. The formula is actually a more velvety/mousse like texture. It dries down completely matte and doesn’t budge at all.

Wear Time

The lipsticks had great wear time and were transfer-proof. They still looked amazing even at the end of the day.

Here is my initial application of Overdramatic:

Also loved this color! This bronzy brown is in trend with the brown lip shades people have been rocking lately.

Quick Tip: Be patient when applying metallic lippies. Take your time and be precise in your application. Metallic will call more attention to your lips so you want to make sure the application is on point!

Here are photos after 9 hours of wear:

Overall Thoughts

I will admit, this is probably my favorite formula of all of the matte liquid lipsticks I’ve ever tried. It is very long-lasting, is kiss-proof, and still feels comfortable on the lips.

I keep going back to buy more shades from this line and currently have about 4 or 5 different shades.

Have you tried the metallic lip trend? What are other lip trends you are loving? What lipstick products do you think I should try next?

Thanks for reading!
