Since leaving MAC, I have really been expanding my makeup collection beyond just that. I have also been exploring more drugstore lipstick brands. There are so many affordable (and good quality) products in drugstores and I’ve been trying to explore as many as I can. I have recently fallen in love with the lip cremes from Milani. They retail for about $10, and are really creamy on the lips (hence the name) and stay on for hours. Today I’m wearing “Gorgeous” from their Amore Matte Lip Creme line.
This color is absolutely…well…gorgeous! Depending on the lip liner that you use, this color can pull more pink or more red. I lightly outlined my lips with “Nightmoth” from MAC. This made the lipstick slightly darker towards the outer edges. Next time I wear, I’ll probably pair it with a pink lip liner to get a different effect.
TIP: I never fill out my lips with a lip liner when I’m wearing a liquid lipstick of any kind. It makes your lips feel and look drier.
So far, I’ve added three colors from this line to my liquid lipstick collection. I plan on getting some more shortly. I really like the way they apply on the lips. The color pay off is also really rich, so I rarely feel the need to layer it.
The only downfall with these liquid lipsticks is that they do tend to start to crumble after a few hours of wear. This can Beverly kind of uncomfortable. So I found that if I wear a lip balm/conditioner under these lip creamed, it makes wearing them more comfortable and they look and stay smooth for a longer period.
Besides this minor inconvenience, I find myself reaching for these a lot more than I do other lipsticks fro mm my collection.
HAVE YOU TRIED ANY COLORS FROM THE MILANI AMORE LINE?
