New Milani Limited Edition Amore Matte Metallic Lip Cremes
(retail: $7.99 each)
Matte About You, Mattely In Love, Automattic Touch, Raving Matte

Thanks so much to longtime reader Sierra for this one! Sierra spotted the new Milani Limited Edition Amore Matte Metallic Lip Cremes (click here for pics of the display) at her local HEB for $7.99 each (I'm also receiving reports of Walgreens sightings). Sierra purchased four of the eight shades and kindly shared swatches, plus her thoughts about these. So take a look!

(NOTE: These are $1 less than the price of the original Amore Matte Lip Cremes on the Milani website, although they're $1 more than the price of the originals when those were first spotted in stores for $6.99 each).

Sierra mentioned that she has never tried the original ones but that these metallic ones are lovely. She said they're "so comfortable on the lips and smell like vanilla".  She said it was difficult to capture their metallic sheen in pics, which is why she thoughtfully included pics both with flash and without.

Thanks so much to reader Andi for sharing this swatch of Chromattic Addict. This is the lightest shade in the range (you can see the tube HERE). I think you can really see the metallic sheen in her pic. Thanks for the pic, Andi!

Again, these are now starting to pop up at Walgreens and HEB. I'm guessing they'll also be available at CVS and Kmart in the days to come. If you spot them out in the wild, I would love to know where you found them. Hopefully they'll eventually be available on the Milani website, as well.

Thanks again, Sierra and Andi, for the beautiful swatches and info about these--I really appreciate it!

  1. Spotted these at Walgreens today along with the summer limited edition wet n wild collection that includes the highlighters. I picked up one of these in the color 01 Chromatic Addict. I would love to know how these compare to the metallic Kyle came out with like King K.

    5. I bought mine on the Milani website. They're $8.99 on the site, but I've heard they're sold in drugstores for less. I felt like it was worth paying an extra dollar or two since these are less than half the price of my other liquid lipsticks, and I didn't want to run around all over to try to find them! And after trying them, they honestly feel, look, and wear like a $20 lip product. So I recommend the website! Shipping for purchases over $25 are free, so get 3 to try out and you get free shipping!

  2. They are sooo pretty!!! I have to stop by HEB in hopes that they have them in stock. No luck at Walgreens finding them so I'm excited to know HEB will receive them as well. I wonder how these metallic matte lipsticks compare to the new Kyle metallic matte lipsticks?

    1. I hope you find them all, Erica! If you end up getting any of the three shades that I didn't feature here, I would love a swatch or two! ;)

    2. I'll definitely let you know if I'm able to find the remaining shades you need swatched. No luck at HEB, but hopefully this week I'll find them.

    1. HEB is a store chain(in Texas, I believe). Different states have different store chains which may not have stores in all 50 states. New York City has Duane Reades but these stores are primarily confined to the NYC area. It probably would be helpful if the location could be put after a store name so that readers could tell if the store was local/ had stores in their part of the US (or we could google the store name). It's nice to see them popping up in different stores across the US (not just confined to Harmons/Bed Bath and Beyond) because it increases the chances of more people finding them.

      Speaking of Harmons- NYC girls (women?), the Harmons at 22nd/23rd street and 6th Ave still had these in stock (along with the Wet and Wild summer 2016 collection) as of the evening of 4/17.

    2. I actually linked to HEB in the very first paragraph of this post, because I always seem to get asked this question! :)

  9. I wasn't into these at all until I saw the updated post with swatches - I actually really like the way those look!

  10. I need all these!! Especially the gold toned and lighter ones! I will definitely be searching CVS and Walgreens for these. I hope I find them!

  11. These are stunning!!! I got the red and purple and they POP! They do dry matte on the lips but its isnt drying. LOVE IT!

  12. I went to Walgreen's looking for the new WnW highlighters... didn't find those, but my store had two full displays of these metallics from Milani! I didn't get any because I tried a metallic liquid lipstick from Jouer and didn't like the look - I feel like not many people can really pull it off. Metallics seem to really make the lines in your lips more noticeable. Maybe girls with filler-plumped lips won't have that problem though (fewer lines, lol). But after seeing these and other swatches I'm kind of intrigued as many of the deeper shades look metallic in a more subtle way!

  13. These are at cvs too! Use your cvs coupons!!!

  14. I'm in NYC and I literally just got the last one at a CVS on 14th St and 5th Ave. Dramatic Diva. They only just got the WnW Spring collection in NYC so forget about Summer, lol. I can't. *smh*

    1. Yes, I was on there yesterday. Monday was the online launch day but don't want to pay shipping and I don't want $25 worth of Milani, lol. I just spent way too much at The Makeup Show NYC. And I bought Kylie's King K yesterday also.

  16. I feel like getting your hands on a Kylie lipstick is like finding a unicorn or winning the lottery, and I've just given up lol. I've been waiting for a brand to come out with a full range of metallic mattes, and Milani KILLED IT! I'm a total liquid lip junkie. These wear and feel just as good my $20-$24 Anastasia, Kat Von D, and Stila ones. Go get yourself one! You won't be disappointed :)
