Review & Swatches: Milani Moisture Matte Lipsticks

Milani Moisture Matte Lipsticks

Milani's Moisture Matte Lipsticks are the newest addition to Milani's lip collection. While the current shade selection is narrow, the promises are big. All 7 shades offer a matte finish, along with a guarantee that they won't budge or feel uncomfortable on the lips. I bought 2 shades when I first saw them on a drugstore display (and used one in a Valentine's Day tutorial), then Milani sent two more of the bolder shades my way. Here are 4 of the new colors out:

  • Matte Naked: medium cool nude
  • Matte Blissful: light cool pink
  • Matte Orchid: electric fuchsia
  • Matte Glam: deep purple
The texture across all of the shades are consistent. All of them glide across lips without tugging, and leave a smooth, velvety texture when you blot your lips together. My lips were in rough shape at the time I took the pictures below, but you can see that any dry patches, or uneven texture remain smoothed and un-emphasized. 

While I didn't experience transfer-proof wear, the bolder shades stain the lips to extend the wear of the overall color. I noticed Matte Orchid lasting through eating and drinking beyond the 4 hour mark. After the matte finish completely wore away, my lips remained tinted for an hour or two longer. 

Despite the long-lasting wear, these didn't dehydrate my lips - and I certainly didn't experience the uncomfortable "tightening" that goes along with a lot of matte lipsticks. Comfortable wear: check.

Overall, these are some of the best mattes to come from drugstore shelves. At just $5.99, they're unbelievably affordable. All of the shades currently released lean cool, so hopefully they even things out with some warmer shades in the near future!
