Hey it’s G,
Thank you for reading my reviews. Today’s review will be about Milani Matte Lipstick #70 (Fearless). The color of this lipstick is dark, it is like a dark purple, kind of similar to eggplant. It is my first Milani product. I saw it in a drugstore and it was only $4, so, I thought I would get it, especially that it was winter and I needed this color.
This Milani lipstick is great in terms of color and length of application. The color looks AMAZING on my lips and contrast very well with my skin tone. The lipstick is pigmented also, one layer is enough to get the desired effect. Additionally, it is long-lasting, which means it lasts almost all day. I really appreciate it when a makeup product lasts long, I don’t like having to reapply makeup every hour or so.
Now comes the negative review. Things I didn’t appreciate nor liked in Milani matte lipstick. These things include texture, smoothness, and smell. The smell is weird, I cant really figure out what it smells like. But I am not used to wearing lipstick with a weird scent. When I first applied it, I was able to smell its scent all the time. Which was extremely ANNOYING. Also, the texture was thick. I mean was feeling the layer of lipstick on my lips all the time and it is very dry. After wearing it for an hour my lips felt very dry and chapped. I guess I should have applied lip balm before hand, maybe this way my lips wouldn’t have felt dry and chapped. Finally, because the lipstick is very dry, I wasn’t able to apply it smoothly. It doesn’t glide like most lipsticks. This is not a big issue, but lipsticks that glide when you apply them are easier to apply.
At the end, I don’t think that I would be buying Milani lipstick anytime soon. I wasn’t very happy with this one. I LOVE LOVE LOVE to share that if you want cheap pigmented lipstick and don’t mind heavy texture and smell, Milani matte lipstick would be a good choice. It is cheap, comes in many colors, and you can find it at any drugstore. But if you wasn’t a smooth lipstick, then I am sorry to say that Milani Matte Lipstick is not for you.
