Milani Moisture Matte Lipstick-- Matte Confident

  It's really hard for me to turn down a matte red lipstick, especially one by a brand as fabulous as Milani.  I've yet to meet a Milani product I didn't like and their lipsticks are particularly stunning.

  The new Moisture Matte spring 2015 lipstick collection is a set of eight matte finish shades.  There's a nice cross section of nudes and pinks, a fuschia, purple and orange, but only one bona fide red.  I found this rather odd, and initially disappointing, because it's a dark, dramatic ruby shade, cool and remote, not so easily accessible.  I would have, given the option, gone for a truer, more classic shade, but curiosity and the always fantastic price point ($5.99 retail) got the better of me.

  I've worn this a few times, if you couldn't tell.  The color is gorgeous and different from any of my not inconsiderable stash of reds, and I've never received so many compliments on a lipcolor.  But let's talk about the formula and what Moisture Matte really means.

  The big thing these days in matte lipwear seems to be creamy, smooth application combined with good pigmentation and that wonderful flat finish.  Matte Confident is all of these.  The slip is simply remarkable-- when's the last time a matte shade glided onto your lips with the ease of a creme?  You even get to purse your lips post application to even the color distribution and it won't mar the finish.  The formula is such that it gives you plenty of time and freedom to apply precisely and comfortably before drying down to classic matte.  Once it's there, it's pretty traditional in feel and behavior-- your lips will feel dry and you will need to take a certain amount of care in freshening up your color throughout the day.  The "moisture" component is in the application, only, but it is a wonderful, novel luxury.
