Paint your pout with gilded glamour. Bold and richly pigmented, these metallic liquid lip colors shine with a soft luster and dry to a smooth matte finish—without drying out your lips. Waterproof and kiss-approved, each Amore Matte Metallic Lip Crème delivers up to 16 hours of wear. Remove with an oil-based longwear lip color remover.
Milani has recently re-packaged and released 10 shades (2 of them are brand new) of its Amore Matte Metallic Lip Cremes, which the company says are rich in pigment and will leave a smooth, matte finish while also imparting luster in a waterproof formula. All 10 shades are reviewed, depicted, and swatched, below.
These now come in rectangular, clear tubes with pinched, doe-footed applicators.
All the shades are richly pigmented and have varying degrees of metallic finish. The most metallic are 01 Chromattic Addict and 02 Matterialistic. Most of the shades are opaque or can be made opaque by adding more product, but a couple of shades (for example, 08 Raving Matte) show a little bit of patchiness and don’t layer super well.
These have a feather-light, thin formula that, true to Milani’s claims, is waterproof and very smudge- and transfer-resistant. You will need a waterproof or oil-based makeup remover to get these off if you don’t want to scrub with a makeup wipe or washcloth.
These colors last for a very long time (over 8 hours), though I’m not sure if they last a full 16 hours (since I almost never wear makeup for more than 12 hours straight). That said, if you are eating something oily, these will wear off (likely in patches), and touching up isn’t the easiest with this formula. Applying more product on top of the dry liquid lipstick gives you a patchy effect. Otherwise, the formula does a good job of being very long-wearing without being drying.
I dislike the very strong buttery-vanilla scent these have. Luckily, I don’t notice the scent after about a minute after application.
