Editor's Review

The formula is supposed to be "bold, hydrating color" with "intense color in just one swipe." The finish is more of a "soft matte" to true satin (a little more sheen than "soft matte" to my eye), and the finish will wear down to a more matte finish within an hour or two of wear (or faster if one blots).

The texture felt lightweight, thinner on my lips but felt lightly creamy with more of a velvety slip as I glided the product across my lips. It didn't tug, but the product had good hold and wore between four and seven hours on me, depending on the shade.

In my experience, the more velvety slip seems to result in the color pulling away a bit more along my lip lines and can be more prone to accentuating any imperfections of my lips (texture, flakiness, and so forth). A few shades were on the... Read More.

A few shades were on the drying side, while most were non-drying. The majority of the range was pigmented with payoff typically ranging between semi-opaque and opaque. The formula has a sweet, vanilla scent but no discernible taste to me.

Black lipstick is usually a pain to pull off but Milani got the formula as good as it can be for the price with this fierce cool-girl lippie that I hope inspires people to take a change and wear black lipstick outside of their usual Halloween and occasional daring big club night excusions. Black is, after all, a neutral shade, and with some tasteful choices and a little tough swagger, just purposeful, minimal makeup and accessories), it can look quite chic. Practice makes perfect, so maybe try wearing it on a night out with friends first—and watch some tutorials (I don’t care how 2016 you think they might be; you probably need some tips to help you balance your look with black lipstick and help build your confidence). Or consider a super dark vampy shade that is almost black and work your way up (down?). Just practice practice practice on getting your application immaculate (and check your teeth!), and do not overdo the rest of your face. Cool neutrals are still everywhere for spring, and if you are a 90s or Y2K stan, this look falls right in formation . Milani’s Liquid and Bullet formulas both work great for this look. If you want a little dimensionality, add a pop of metallic red where you pout goes but keep most of your face matte (sculpted yes, blush just a little of your lightest shade) , except for a touch of cream highlighter for day—add holo highlighter for evening if you want some drama and pop on your lashes. But the whole theme of this look is effortless, minimalist, tiny silver jewelry, black mini a line dress or shorts and tee, converse kicks, little cross body bag—immaculate and not fussed, a little intimidating at first but also the most chill. You got this. Don’t spend more because this lipstick is better than the high end dupes anyway, and cool kids don’t buy their every day lippie at the time Dior counter. Just be sure and exfoliate first. To quote the great Alyssa Edwards, “If you’re not exfoliating, you’re not wearing lipstick.” Especially the liquid ;)

It's such a nice color and it wears more red than brown on me. Perfect statement color that still wears as office-friendly on my light-medium skin. Only slight complaint is that after a few hours of wear it feels slightly dry and crumbly. It reapplies nicely though so it's a non-issue, and layering it over or under a balm fixes this. It applies creamy but gets drier with time. It's a true matte formula.
