NEW Miliani Amore Matte Lip Crème + 17 Hour Matte Eyeliner Review



Hey hey babes!!! How was your Labor Day? I have to admit I did a lot of labor during the holiday weekend. I was blessed to spend the weekend doing makeup artistry on a beautiful bride and her bridesmaids; styling a photo shoot; cleaning my house and spending time with family.

Over the last couple of weeks I have been using the new Milani Amore Matte Lip Crème’s and 17 Hour Matte Eyeliners to insure the best review. If you follow me on Instagram (you should @pinkluxpl) or attended my broadcast on Periscope (@pinkluxpl) I wore a vibrant purple matte lipstick- for the record I never wear purple- but I have to admit I am IN LOVE with the lip crème’s. 

I have tried soooooo many different matte lipsticks that I am kinda picky.

To pass my test the matte liquid lipsticks must do the following:
  1. Must be matte. I have tried so many that are labeled matte but are NOT matte...ugh
  2. Stay in place. 
  3. Don't transfer.
  4. Non-drying.
  5. Non-streaking. 

I first discovered Miliani cosmetics years ago when I wanted a beautiful nude lipstick for my skin tone. This is before all the new companies and the millions of nude lipstick choices. I instantly feel in love with all of their lipsticks and the delicious smell. At the time all the lipsticks smelled like wax or where none scented. A few years later Milani came out with one of the best drugstore full coverage foundations I have tried. Now they have raised the bar with the matte lip crèmes and very pigmented 17 hour matte eyeliners. I have to admit they are in my top 3 favorite drugstores list. I can always count on them to have my shade and deliver great quality products.

Milani was kind to send me two of the new lip crème shades –Obsession and Precious- and all of the shades of the matte eyeliners. The green and blue are perfect for fall makeup looks. (Stay tuned to see some fall inspired look tutorials) Below are my swatches and review. If you purchase a shade please tag me so I can see how you rock your look. Xoxo
