First, let me say I had no idea that Milani was coming out with new lipsticks this summer. Last I heard new lipsticks would be out this Fall so it took me by surprise to see the display in Walgreens. In my excitement, I snatched up these 6(there are 8 total) with the quickness.
Like the names say, these are matte. There are already 8 other Milani matte lipsticks so this brings the total to 16. Most of these swatched with a smooth application, however, Matte Luxe gave me some trouble. I’m only going by how it swatched on my arm, but I’m thinking this one is going to be least forgiving. That means serious exfoliation on your part if you struggle with dry lips.
This set of matte lipsticks is heavy on the reds and wines with a couple of nudes(not pictured) and the bright orange. It’s possible that you won’t need both Matte Flirty and Matte Love since they’re so close together in color, but Matte Love does have a hint of sparkle to it so understand if
you hoard them you’re compelled to get both. And while Matte Fearless looks super dark, I think it’s manageable if you’re apprehensive about dark lipsticks. I posted a swatch on Instagram so you can see what I mean.
