Milani Amorematte Metallic Liquid Lipstick: Review + Lip Swatches

9:14:00 AM


Another day, another K-Mart run for snacks turned into makeup shopping....

So randomly the other day, while in K-Mart buying snacks I ran across a new display for the Milani Amorematte Metallic Lipsticks and decided to pick up a few, given that metallic Liquid lips are on trend at the moment.

So many brands have come out with Metallic Liquid lipsticks. I wasn't so sure that the trend would work on my dry ass lips so the Milani ones are the best for me at a $7.99 price point.I have been wearing these for a few weeks and I am ready to give my final verdict on these Metallic lippies

First let's look at swatches of the three I picked up:

Chromatic Addict (01): metallic midtone nude with gold sparkle


Cinematic Kiss (04): midtone pink metallic with pink sparkle


Dramatic Diva (05): bright fuschia pink with pink metallic



Review



I am going to rate these 1-5 based on the following criteria: Packaging, Pigmentation and Performance

Packaging: 4

This lipsticks come in standard liquid lipstick packaging. It has a clear bottle with gold accents. There are 5 grams of product in each tube. There is a elongated doe foot applicator with a precision tip, that makes application super easy, as you would be able to line your lips with the applicator an fill in with even application. These also have a frosting smell, that's kind of strong. If you are sensitive to scents that maybe a problem, but it goes away rather quickly. Nothing to special about the packaging, but I love the applicator! It makes it soooo much easier to apply precisely and evenly.These are also available on the Milani website for those that don't have Milani available in their area.

Pigmentation 4.5

These liquid lipsticks are so pigmented! They are opaque on one swipe a
 the metallic effect is gorgeous for all three. This can easily be worn alone or with other liquid lipsticks as a pop of metallic in the center of the lips. As you can see from the lip swatches the pigmentation of each shade is bold and the opacity is unreal. I was pleasantly surprised at these, but I will say that Dramatic Diva is a tad more sheer than the others. The good thing though, is that these actually build up nicely with out being cakey or too thick!

Performance 4.5

Okay....so about the comfort of these on the lips. OMG! They are so comfortable. They dry down rather quickly which is also a plus. These will not bleed or budge. I have been testing these for several weeks and had no issue with them last 4 - 5 hours. They hold up pretty well through eating, but I felt that I needed to reapply mine after eating oily salad dressing. The best thing about these metallic lipsticks is that they do not flake or ball off your lips like some other liquid lipsticks. I typically always have that issue because I have extremely dry and peely lips, but with these,specifically Chromatic Addict and Cinematic Kiss, I had no issue with peeling.

Final Thoughts

I love these lipsticks!  I honestly wasn't to thrilled about the metallic trend, but these are changing my mind. I think that the color was most wearable for me, most likely as a touch of metallic in the center of the lips. I would also wear all over my lips and as a complement to other similar color lipsticks
