The night before using the matte shades I did a lip scrub and intensive overnight lip treatment to prep my lips. I always do this if I am going to wear a matte. My first thoughts on the Milani Metallic Lip Creme was that the packaging is pretty and the lip color looks gorgeous. As soon as you open this Lip Creme you get a strong smell of vanilla. I personally like that, but if you are sensitive to smell you may not. The application was smooth and even, and just like most mattes it dries down. I have read reviews on this product about flaking….. I did not have that problem. I wore it for an entire evening out and it still looked beautiful. It is drying, for me, no more or less than most mattes. I just take really good care of my lips before and after. The metallic colors are gorgeous and look so beautiful on the lips. Matte is not my favorite because it is not always the most comfortable choice, but these were so stunning I didn’t care. These have quickly moved up to my favorites list.
If you do not like matte, I also tried the Milani Amore Lip Shine in the shade Delight. I did not get a scent with this product. Again, it applied smoothly and evenly. I found it to be pigmented and hydrating. When pressing my lips together they felt smooth and were not sticky at all. This was a very comfortable and flattering lip product and shade for my complexion.
Recap: The metallic lip creme is not the most comfortable, but is absolutely stunning for a night out. The amore shine is super comfortable, moisturizing and pigmented without the staying power of a matte of course. These products were all wins for me. Ulta has these buy one get one 40% off right now.
