Milani Matte Glam Color Statement Matte Lipstick Review
Listen, if you love purple lipsticks you NEED Matte Glam! Yes, need it. For the past two days, I’ve had to worry about semi-trucks, narrow lanes and no GPS signal during my never-ending road trip. But I never had to worry about my lipstick because it remained poppin’ all day!
Matte Glam is one of the eight new Color Statement Matte Lipsticks and perhaps my favorite so far. It’s a cool muted grape with a creamy, matte finish and sweet vanilla scent. Matte Glam is the kind of purple that’s a little easier to wear. I mean, it’ll definitely make a statement. But it’s not crazy bright. Or too vibrant really. It’s a more laid back kind of purple.
Matte Glam has a really great formula too. Milani describes this line on the site as “Moisture Mattes” which is like a makeup oxymoron but it actually makes sense when you apply it. Matte Glam has a soft, creamy texture that applies smoothly with full coverage in a single swipe. Some matte formulas tend to feel a bit drying and clingy but Matte Glam is very comfortable to wear. It didn’t dry my lips out at all and I didn’t experience any issues with flaking, settling, bleeding or feathering.
Plus it lasts forever! Even through heavy talking, eating and drinking Matte Glam wears for well over 6 hours before it shows any signs of fading. My dad and I drove all the way from Michigan to Virginia and back (11+ hours each way) and I only applied Matte Glam twice. Yes, only twice! I also only needed to apply lip balm once so I’d say Matte Glam is an A+ in my book!
