Important Update Regarding the New Milani Amore Matte Lip Crèmes

Milani Limited Edition Amore Matte Lip Crème Collection
(retail: $6.99 each at Walgreens)

Thanks to several of you for letting me know that Milani has confirmed via social media that the limited edition Amore Matte Lip Crèmes are exclusive to Walgreens. HOWEVER, Milani has also confirmed that these will eventually be available for purchase on the Milani website! Awesome news, right? (Especially since you get free shipping on orders $25+ on the Milani website.) I obviously do not know yet exactly when this collection will be available on the Milani site, but I believe it will be September.

Milani also said that this collection was scheduled to release in late August/September, but some stores are obviously putting it out earlier (which is often the case with limited edition collections). This is key though, because I don't want everyone to get discouraged if they cannot find this display at Walgreens right now. Some stores MAY not put out the display for a few weeks. You can always check with your Walgreens Beauty Advisor to see if they have their shipment yet, and when they plan to put it out (Walgreens Beauty Advisors are awesome, so don't be afraid to talk to one and ask questions!).

ALSO: I just added some beautiful reader-submitted lip swatches to my original post HERE. Also, I was able to find this collection recently and I purchased a few shades, which I'm testing right now for review. If you're in San Diego and you're looking for this collection, start near the coast and downtown area first, and then work your way inland. I've found over the years that the stores closer to the coast and downtown (basically metropolitan San Diego) get things first, and it may take a little while for stores in inland areas (like East County) to get things. Also, check the larger, 24HR Walgreens stores first--they usually get the newest collections before smaller stores.

Thanks again to everyone who took the time to share these Milani updates with us. I truly appreciate it!

  2. Do you know if these are exclusive to Walgreens? None of mine carry Milani but the CVS stores do. . .

    1. Same here. Does that make this a regional promo? No wags anywhere near me carry Milani. Just CVS.

  3. Wow my Walgreens does not sell Milani only my small Cvs which is about the same size as my Walgreens. Looks like I may be ordering off their site. Which may give a chance to get some products I normally can't. Look on the bright side. Maybe more makeup to add to my collection. Hahahaj

    1. New York City ladies, I have seen these in Duane Reade but not Walgreens (not yet anyway). Please remember to check both stores. I have found things in Duane Reade that never appeared at my local Walgreens.

    2. Thanks, ladies! Makes sense since Wags owns DR! :)

    4. ok - update from me in nyc- finally found them today while making an 8am pepto run for a horrible stomachache at my local duane reade (long island city). They must have put them out late yesterday but are almost all gone already! I managed to get all but adore and beloved...2 I do want so the hunt is now on! But at least we know we can try to order online in sept...

  6. Yay! Glad you added the lip swatches, and doubly glad you got them on different skin tones. I predict that Flirt will be undersold and first to the discount stores (patchy as it is). I am amazed at how dark Beloved looks on light skin and how light it looks on dark skin!

  7. Thank you for this post! I had called 3 Walgreens, with no luck. I finally just emailed Milani today and asked them just to tell me WHERE in my city it is. If anyone is from Hampton Roads, VA - I will let you know!

  8. Found them today and put one on as soon as I got home. Smell like liquid cupcake, so freaking good. Very light, remind me of Stila stay all day but thinner. Takes a while to set. No flavor. One of the more drying formulas I've tried.. I've had it on about three hours and I definitely felt like I wanted some chapstick.. and it looked pretty dry too, didn't settle into lip lines but clung and made them pretty obvious.. also wore off rather quickly around the inside of the lips (that may be because I was licking for some comfort from the dryness, I haven't eaten or had anything to drink) the rest of it looks good. No transfer. I'm undecided.. I grabbed my favorite four in case I never saw them again.. I'm not thrilled with the wear though, it would look pretty obvious with the dark colors especially.

  9. What I wanna know is why is this only available at Walgreen's? They never put milani on sale

  10. My Walgreens put them out early and only got 2 of each color so they were gone the first day. So much for that :(

  11. Apparently not a Walgreens exclusive in Detroit area. Got all 8 at CVS, $2.99 each on sale until tomorrow. Neither of my Walgreens carries Milani at all. I wonder if that has anything to do with it?
