Milani Beloved & Crush Amore Matte Lip Cremes

Milani Beloved Amore Matte Lip Creme
Milani Beloved Amore Matte Lip Creme

Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme ($8.99 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a new, limited edition liquid lipstick that dries to a matte finish. You’ll mostly find them at your local drugstore (I got mine from Walgreens), but they are available online as well through Milani directly. These have a very thin, liquid-y consistency–they easily get outside the lines and in general, the applicator can apply far more than you need, so I highly recommend a little patience and maybe using a lip brush (if you can) to apply and get really precise, neat lines. The formula has a longer dry down–about five to ten minutes before you can press your lips together–and gets very tacky after two minutes or so (do NOT! press your lips together or else you will lift color in large patches!). They’re one of the lesser drying liquid lipsticks I’ve come across (but these did get a bit drying after four to six hours of continuous wear), and they are long-wearing and pigmented. They have a moderately strong sweet, vanilla scent.

Milani Beloved Amore Matte Lip Creme ($8.99 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is described as a “brown rose.” It’s a muted, medium-dark plummy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich, opaque color payoff with a thin, highly spreadable consistency, which gave really smooth and even coverage, but it does make it a little harder to apply if you don’t wipe the applicator a bit prior to application (think of it like mascara). It wore well for eight hours and was a touch drying after six hours of wear. Colour Pop Bumble (P, $6.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Bad Girl RiRi (LE, $17.00) is glossier (90% similar). NARS Mayflower (DC, $26.00) is less pigmented, glossier (90% similar). NARS Bansar (P, $25.00) is lighter, warmer, glossier (85% similar). Maybelline Nude Nuance (P, $7.99) is darker, more muted, glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop Mosh Pit (LE, $5.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). Kat Von D Double Dare (P, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte Beach Bum (P, $22.00) is darker, cooler, glossier (85% similar). Tarte TBT (P, $20.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Tarte Front Row (P, $20.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Liar (P, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (80% similar). Tarte Delish (P, $20.00) is cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Milani Crush Amore Matte Lip Creme ($8.99 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is described as a “warm brick brown.” It’s a dark red-toned brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that looked smooth once it dried down, but it was somewhat uneven–there were places that appeared darker than others, even though I didn’t see so much actual streaking. The color lasted for eight hours before having noticeable fading, and it felt a little drying after the six-hour mark. Kat Von D Plath (LE, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). Kat Von D Vampira (P, $20.00) is darker (80% similar). Colour Pop Kae (LE, $6.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Colour Pop Lax (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar).

ColourPop Super Shock Shadows
ColourPop Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Mixed Tape Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone cool grey.” It’s a medium, purple-taupe with cool undertones and a pearly sheen.

ColourPop Party Time Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “dusty mauve grey.” It’s a muted, medium-dark purple-taupe with a sprinkling of very, very fine shimmer over a matte finish. It had fairly good color payoff, while the texture had the drier (but smooth) consistency of a lot of the ColourPop’s mattes, but it wasn’t too dry; the eyeshadow still spread out without losing intensity and was easy to apply on the lid. It wore well for ten hours without fading or creasing. Too Faced Mulberry (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Straight Trippin’ Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “deep black with a slight hint of a violet hue.” It’s a purpled burgundy with warm, plummy undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a fairly blendable texture, but it ran a little drier, so it needed extra blending to ensure it didn’t look uneven or patchy when applied. The color lasted for ten hours without any fading or creasing that I could see. Too Faced Meow! (LE, $16.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). Tarte Glamorous (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar).

ColourPop Plaid Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “deep blackened olive.” It’s a deepened olive green with subtle, warm khaki undertones and fine khaki and green shimmer. It was intensely pigmented with a really creamy, blendable texture that still applied with full intensity to the lid. At this point, I sound like a broken record, but after ten hours of wear, it still looked as good as it did initially applied. Clarins Forest #3 (LE, ) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Shade V (LE, $25.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Cobra (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Last Dance #4 (P, ) is lighter (85% similar).

ColourPop Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Supermodel Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft golden ivory.” It’s a brightening, light-medium golden beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen.

ColourPop I Spy Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft yellow peach.” It’s a light-medium orange with warm, yellow undertones and a satin sheen.

ColourPop Stereo Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “blackened burgundy with copper and pink violet duo chrome glitter.” It’s a deepened, burgundy-brown with warm undertones and lighter gold and plum sparkle. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a more emollient, thin consistency compared the average ColourPop eyeshadow. It applied better with fingertips or patted on in two to three layers for truer-to-pan intensity in practice. It wore well for ten hours with minimal fall out but no fading or creasing. Too Faced Pop (P, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Stila Deep Plum (LE, $18.00) is cooler (90% similar). theBalm Alice Copper (P, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar).

ColourPop Central Perk Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “dirty maroon.” It’s a medium-dark burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a drier consistency compared to other shades, though it wasn’t actually dry. The texture was smooth, squishy as you’d expect, but it could been more emollient to make blending easier.

ColourPop Cruel Intentions Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Cruel Intentions Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Cruel Intentions Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “warm rose.” It’s a lightly brightened, medium pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had buildable coverage, and it applied with the most pigmentation with fingertips (exactly as described), but I had no problems using a stippling brush and using two layers for color. The texture was lightweight and blended out easily, more like a powder in that respect, and it wore for nine and a half hours on me. Tarte Genius (LE, $28.00) is glossier (95% similar).

ColourPop Never Been Kissed Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “dusty coral.” It’s a muted, medium coral with a hint of pink and warm undertones paired with a matte finish. The texture was smooth, blendable, and felt like a powder as soon as it hit the skin. The color payoff was buildable, just as described by the brand, and you’ll get the most opaque coverage with fingertips while brushes will yield less coverage, but the payoff is buildable in two to three layers.

ColourPop Be-dazzled & Guess Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Be-dazzled Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop Be-dazzled Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Be-dazzled Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep true purple.” It’s a lightly brightened, medium purple with cool undertones and a vinyl-like sheen. It doesn’t dry down to a fully flat matte finish like a lot of the other shades have. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a thin consistency that is a little harder to apply evenly. The formula feels clingier and really emphasizes the natural texture and lines on the lips in a way that makes them look somewhat shirveled–it’s not as soft or smooth as the average ColourPop liquid lipstick. I noticed the color flaking away from the center of the mouth after four hours of wear, and it was fairly drying over time, though most of the color lasted for six and a half hours. Makeup Geek Electric Slide (LE, $12.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Kat Von D Roxy (P, $20.00) is more muted (90% similar). Estee Lauder Shameless Violet (P, $30.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Kat Von D Roxy (LE, ) is lighter (85% similar). MAC She-Rebel (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). MAC Matte Royal (LE, $17.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). Illamasqua Kontrol (P, $24.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar). Illamasqua ESP (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). MAC 4Eva (P, $17.00) is lighter (80% similar). MAC Recollection (P, $21.00) is lighter, warmer, less glossy (80% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Belladonna (DC, $18.00) is lighter, warmer, glossier (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Guess Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “dark blackened violet.” It’s a blackened purple with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation (one of the least pigmented shades I’ve encountered in the line-up!) that dries down to a mostly matte finish. Unfortunately, as it is a very dark color, that sheerness also came with unevenness. It wore for eight hours without flaking, and it was moderately drying after six and a half hours of wear. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Stud (LE, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Too Faced Melted Villain (P, $21.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Bite Beauty Black Truffle (P, $26.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). MAC Which Witch (LE, $17.00) is warmer, glossier (85% similar). MAC Smoked Purple (P, $17.00) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Formula Summary: ColourPop Ultra Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a long-wearing, pigmented lipstick that starts off glossy and dries down quickly to that super flat matte finish. They have minimal transfer with some of the lighter shades having almost none for the first few hours of wear, but any time you’ve had a meal, they lose that transfer-resistant quality to a noticeable degree. They tend to wear anywhere from six to ten hours with darker shades maintaining better color coverage and wear over a longer period of time. Some shades get a little drying about two-thirds to three-fourths through the wear, while a few shades have been fairly non-drying even many hours into wear. They fade away evenly with most color loss occurring from the center of the lips if eating a more oil-based meal but the majority of color survives a meal. Reapplication has been hit or miss and tends to depend on how well it wore away and how easily the shade applies normally, but reapplication tends to emphasize the lip’s natural texture significantly compared to initial application and gives lips a very wrinkled, dried-up look. I’ve layered gloss on top of some shades with moderate success, though it will obviously lose the matte finish and will transfer and I’ll get tiny flakes where the matte lip color has lifted by mixing with gloss but has been pretty minimal. The formula had no discernible taste or scent.

ColourPop Dr. M & Kapow Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

ColourPop Dr. M Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick
ColourPop Dr. M Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick

ColourPop Dr. M Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep blackened green.” It’s a cool-toned, green-leaning teal with very, very subtle emerald green pearl. It’s such a cool color, and I love that it applied with fully opaque, even color, but it emphasizes the texture/lines of the natural lip tremendously in a way that makes them appear raisin-like. Despite this, it didn’t seem to “crack” when I smiled, but it was a little more uncomfortable to wear (I felt more aware of it on than other shades in the range, even for liquid lipstick). It wore for nine hours and was moderately drying after five hours of wear.
Makeup Geek Twerk (LE, $12.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Illamasqua Apocalips (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, lighter, cooler (80% similar). Anastasia Requiem (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, darker, more muted (80% similar). MAC Young Attitude (P, $21.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Chlorophyll (P, $18.00) is lighter, warmer, glossier (80% similar). MAC Show and Teal (LE, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar).

ColourPop Kapow Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is described as a “muted greey taupe.” It’s a medium-dark, purpled taupe with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. This was less of a flat matte finish and more of your traditional matte finish, and this shade had a much longer drying time compared to a lot of the range, so you’ll need to be careful as it dries down to avoid pressing your lips together or else the color will lift/flake off where the lips meet. I had very slight “cracking” with this shade after an hour and a half of wear. It was fairly comfortable to wear until four hours, where it felt a bit drying,a nd it lasted for seven hours. Makeup Geek Misfit (P, $12.00) is cooler (85% similar). Maybelline Gone Greige (P, $7.49) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). MAC Simply Smoked (P, $21.00) is more muted (85% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Sebastian (P, $18.00) is lighter, more muted, glossier (85% similar). MAC Deep Rooted (P, $17.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). Colour Pop Trap (P, $6.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
