Milani Cosmetics 61 Matte Naked Color Statement Moisture Matte Lipstick Review and Swatches
It’s like Christmas Day! Milani has been hinting about their new matte lipsticks since last spring and we’ve all been
impatiently waiting. Only 2 drugstore brands do true matte lipsticks the right way and Milani just became one of those brands with their new Color Statement Moisture Matte Lipsticks.
Meet your matte. Your fantasy matte. The matte that not only feels great (yes, you read that right – it’s actually comfy) but also lasts for hours and has “a-mazing Instagram selfie” written all over it. Infused with grape seed extract imported from Italy, this smear-proof lip soother delivers mega color that won’t budge, even after a close encounter with a cappuccino cup. In eight luxe, go-the-distance shades, from the oh-so-sweet, pale pink Matte Innocence to the va va voom, fiery-red Matte Passion. This matte? So major.

Whenever I see the words moisture and matte together I always expect it to be too moisturizing to be a matte. Surprisingly, Milani nailed the formula or at least came as close as we can get. This lipstick feels like your average lipstick but after a few minutes it dries down to a slightly more moisturizing matte formula. The wear was really good even without the lovely Milani lip liner but it would have worn longer with it. I only touched up twice which isn’t bad. I didn’t use any lip balm prior to testing and didn’t notice any dryness at the end of the day. Can we also talk about how perfect this pink-tone nude color is? It’s perfect all year long!
