Spotted: NEW Milani Limited Edition Amore Matte Lip Crème Collection (With Swatches)

IMPORTANT: Milani has confirmed to several readers via social media that this collection is exclusive to Walgreens. It was scheduled to release in September but, as many of us have seen, some stores are putting it out earlier. Milani also confirmed that this collection WILL BE AVAILABLE ON THE MILANI WEBSITE. As of the time of this post, I do not know when this collection will be available for purchase online, so hold tight and I'll share with you as soon as I find out.

Milani + matte + liquid lip lipstick? Buh-bye, money!

Milani has just released a new limited edition collection of Matte Lip Crèmes. Today I have lots of pics to share with you thanks to reader @avidliteraryworm007 on Instagram, who just spotted this display at her local Walgreens. Take a look!

01 Crush, 02 Adore, 03 Beloved, 04 Lust

05 Embrace, 06 Desire, 07 Romance, 08 Flirt

Um, I'm going to NEED Beloved and Lust (and I predict right now that those are going to be the first shades to be wiped out in this display when I find it!).

Swatches of Beloved, Lust, Crush, Flirt

@avidliteraryworm007 just shared these swatches of the four shades she purchased. She mentioned that the only one she didn't care for was Flirt, which was patchy (as you can see above).

NOTE: In the last 24 hours, I have heard from several of you who have been lucky enough to find these in your area, and just about everyone has said that these are super pigmented, very opaque, transfer-proof, and not drying (I did hear from a few people who said they were drying, though the majority of you said they were not). Reader dee M also mentioned that these are long-wearing, which is pretty much the icing on the cake as far as I'm concerned (thanks for that tip, dee M!). And reader Aliece just commented below to let us know that these have a vanilla bakery fragrance (not watermelon like most Milani lipsticks).

Embrace, Crush, Lust, Beloved

Reader @tigrej21 on Instagram kindly shared these swatches with us of the four shades she purchased. She also mentioned that she had to seriously scrub her hand with a makeup towelette before she could remove these, so they definitely have some staying power!

(I am THRILLED that I'm able to share with you how these shades look on different skintones in this post. Thank you to all of these lovely contributors for enabling this to happen--you have no idea how much I appreciate it!)

Romance, Crush, Beloved and Beloved 
Plus: Beloved compared to Sephora Marvelous Mauve

Next up, my pal Emi of Project Swatch shared these swatches that she posted on her Instagram, with a comparison of Milani Beloved to the Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Marvelous Mauve. I love this comparison since I know many of us own Marvelous Mauve and as you can see, it is NOT a dupe.

Romance, Crush, Beloved and Beloved 
Plus: Beloved compared to Sephora Marvelous Mauve

Next up, my pal Lisa (@makeuplunchanddinner on Instagram) shared this great comparison of various popular matte liquid lipsticks to Milani Beloved. She compared it to LA Splash Latte Confession, Sephora Marvelous Mauve, and Kat Von D Lolita

PLEASE NOTE: Lisa said that Beloved looks more brown on her actual lips than on her hand as pictured above. I think this is one of those shades that is going to differ dramatically depending on your skintone and whether you're swatching on your hand/arm or wearing on your actual lips. So please be aware that this shade may not look at all like any of the swatches you see online--you'll probably only really be able to tell once you get it on your actual lips. Although I think one thing we can all agree on is that it definitely is not as pink as Sephora Marvelous Mauve!

Also, to underscore the staying power of these liquid lipsticks, definitely check out Lisa's soap-and-water removal test video HERE.

All eight shades as worn by reader @interviewandy

Here are all eight shades as worn by reader @interviewandy on Instagram. I think you can see that Flirt, Romance and Embrace are a bit patchy (@avidliteraryworm007 mentioned that above about Flirt as well) but the others look pretty darn smooth and even, right? Really appreciate you sharing this collage with us, @interviewandy. 

UPDATE:

Huge thanks to reader @celestesstyles4less for sharing these beautiful pics of her wearing seven of the eight shades in this range!

    2. Lol!! That's a perfect excuse! I called a few Walgreens and so far none of the stores have recieved them in yet.

    3. I actually found mine on an end-cap at CVS! I've seen them at K-Mart too so call those stores in your area also :) It's worth it for sure!

  3. I seem to be going though some serious 90s nostalgia where I grab every brown lip colour I come across so I think I'll be needing Crush ≧∇≦

  5. Hmmm, Beloved looks an awful lot like LA Splash's Latte Confession to me, but that likely won't stop me from trying to snag the Milani version!

    2. If you are in New York City, don't forget about looking in the Duane Reade stores. I saw a display of these in two Duane Reade stores (one on 57th and 6th Ave and the other at the store opposite the Time Warner Center). Sometimes Duane Reade will get collections before Walgreens does.

  10. I *finally* found the new matte lipsticks and the only one that was a good color for me was Matte Beauty :::sobs::: These might just ease the pain though ;)

  11. Anyone know if these are semi-permanents (aka: dries to be transfer-proof) or if they're a regular lipstick?

    1. Just tried lust and they are transfer proof!! Love it! transfer proof, long wearing and so far not drying! More! I need more haha

    1. Milani is in some Walgreens here in the Denver area, but not others and I cannot figure out the pattern. It's also available at the Neighborhood Store Wal Marts and K Mart.

    2. Actually, I live in Castle Rock and not Denver proper. 😊 So none South of Denver.

  18. Awesome! Walgreens is on my list of errands :-) Will check out the display - if it's up :-P

  19. Just picked up Adore (actually my sweet husband saw the display while at a Walgreens we never go too... so he texted and asked if I wanted one since he heard me lamenting that I couldn't find them) I'm so into nude lips right now and this is perfect! I'm not use to the liquid lipsticks since this is the first one I have tried from any brand. So to me it's a little drying but I slapped a touch of gloss on and it's PERFECT. Long wearing and I really like the smell of them too. Not Watermelon smelling like their lipsticks, but more like a cupcake, or vanilla something.. hard to describe but I like it. Now that I know this Walgreens has them, I will be going over there to get the shade in Lust.

  20. I found them in Philadelphia today at Walgreens. I showed restraint and only bought three. Haven't tried them yet though

    1. Omg where in Philadelphia did you find it?! I went to two stores and they didn't have any :(

  21. Does anyone know how much these cost? I need flirt oh my gosh

    ReplyDelete
  22. I found these at a Walgreens that DOESN'T carry Milani, which was a surprise.

    I got 5/8 of the colors. And while they're not drying, I'd say they accentuate your lip lines. They're light weight but you can still feel them on your lips throughout the day, but not tacky or peel when your lips are pressed together. I got them for 6.99 each.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Same here I just bought 7/8 also at a Walgreens that doesn't carry Milani after I went to another that DOES carry Milani but doesn't have them yet. So one will probably have to look at ALL of the Walgreens in their area.

  23. I just left my local Walgreens, it's 1 am. And I found and purchased them all. Price was 6.99 (7.41 w/tax) still affordable compared to some others on the market. I'm waiting until morning for a test run. Just happy i was able to find them!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I am going to CVS today to see if they have this display as of yet. I have worn Milani brand before that were wonderful and so affordable too. I will let you know if I find this display today and if so how I like these new mattes. xo

    ReplyDelete
  25. Do we know how much these are yet?

    ReplyDelete
  26. You're killing me with these! I can't wait to find these, and the new Matte Lipsticks by Milani as well!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Gahhh! I love Milani so I cannot wait to find these. So happy I'm off tomorrow. I'm going to hunt for these!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Omg finally a drugstore matte liquid lipstick

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm hitting up my local Walgreens after work this afternoon! After I used Cailyn's liquid lipstick matte I was HOOKED! There is ZERO point in me using ANY other kind of lipstick! Then I got Jeffree Star and now this. Y'all about about to make me lose my mind. But I'm going to look good doing it ;)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I just saw these at walgreens on Nasa 1 in Houston, Exit 24 of HWY 45. Just follow to the end and stay on the left. Otherwise it will be tricky to get into the Walgreens parking lot

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thank you for the swatches on multiple skin tone. That is SO helpful.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I just purchased Embrace and Romance and thought Romance is a stunning red, I really dont like how drying they feel. It went on very sloppy as well and was hard to clean. chapstick over it helps. Otherwise it felt VERY drying

    ReplyDelete
  33. I found these but the colors just aren't doing it for me. I think the market is just starting to get saturated and basic colors feel pretty blah at this point when it comes to these matte products. Milani's matte lipsticks are way more interesting!

    ReplyDelete
  34. These have popped up and the Walgreens on Scarsdale in Houston near San Jacinto South Campus AND on Broadway/518 near Barry Rose Dr. in Pearland.

  35. if youre in nyc they are at duane reade! i also posted a review with lip swatches on youtube if youre interested <3

  36. Has anyone found these in the Dallas/Fort Worth area?

  37. I have been to 7 different walgreens and in at least two of them I was told that they stopped selling Milani products..wth??!! There's no display or space where their products used to be. That blows. and I need them now cuz I dont want to wait..lol

  44. Do any of you ladies know where I can find them anywhere in Los Angeles ? I've been looking for them like crazy with no luck 😩😩

    ReplyDelete
  45. I bought these in the 4 lightest colors (the others are WAY dark). They are amazing and have a great wear time. I also don't find them to be any more drying than bare lips.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Just went into a CVS today August 20th and found them! apparently they're not Walgreens exclusive after all!! Yay!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. For northwest peoples, my walgreens doesn't even have Milani but I found this collection at Fred Meyer's on a special display.

    ReplyDelete
  48. My local Walgreens had one Crush in clearance for $1.74.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Found an untouched display at the CVS on 23rd Street, near 1st Avenue in Manhattan! Picked up Beloved and Romance. I've seen the display at a few other CVS stores in Manhattan, but not yet at any Walgreens.

    ReplyDelete
  50. just wanted to share some information. This is NOT exclusive to Walgreens I just found them at my CVS if I could upload a picture of my receipt I would. so for those ladies that have been looking for them like crazy try CVS. and also a little birdie at Milani Cosmetics told me that they will be releasing again in mid October. They screwed up my online order so she shared that info with me.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I wasn't having any luck finding these at Walgreens or CVS. I found them at 2 but they were almost gone, no shades left I would wear. I found them today a Kmart. Only $5.99.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Picked up Embrace and Flirt for 2.99 each this week at CVS. I tried Embrace; it had a super-smooth application, and dried to a nice matte finish and felt like I had nothing on my lips, but as it started to dry my lips started itching! And then I needed two cleansing wipes to get it off of my lips. This will be great for some people but I do not like long-wearing lipstick of any kind so this is a "No" for me. The color was gorgeous though.
