Who else gets distracted while running errands that are strictly non makeup related and then end up falling victim to purchasing something you swore called your name? Well that’s what happened to me while at Walgreens a couple of weeks ago I came across a Milani Amore Matte Lip Crème display showcasing their 10 new limited edition lip crèmes Milani launched for the fall season. After sifting through the remaining shades I selected two lip colors that I thought would be perfect additions to my collection and complimentary to my skin tone. The two Milani Amore Matte Lip Crèmes I purchased were Glamour which is a beautiful pearl bronze shimmery shade and Magnetic which is described as a deep pearl cranberry color with also a hint of shimmer.
Glamour and Magnetic are both very reminiscent of two of the three Dose of Colors “Dare to Dazzle” collection shades Teddy and Corset which are almost identical to the Milani matte lip cremes. The “Dare to Dazzle” collection was released last holiday season and sold out before I could purchase however, with luck I think I’ve come across two possible dupes for almost half the price! The Milani Amore Matte Lip Crèmes are very pigmented and once applied can be a bit difficult to remove. I experienced this during my lip swatch session but it was nothing a little oil couldn’t handle. Proper lip maintenance such as lip scrubbing and moisturizing with your favorite lip product is essential before application because these lip crèmes are not forgiving when it comes to imperfections they magnify them ALL. I really liked the applicator of this product as it was very flexible and made it a dream to apply which helped me to achieve an even and precise application right off the bat. The packaging of course is fashioned after Miliani’s traditional sleek design and at the price point of $8.99 it’s a great buy especially for the beauty on a budget.
