I recently picked up a few shades from the Milani Color Statement Moisture Matte lipsticks. I have already reviewed the shade “Matte Darling” and “Matte Iconic.” Today, I am reviewing the shade –”Matte Passion.” Read on to find out whether I liked it or not.
$5.99. Prices may vary from store to store.
Meet your matte. Your fantasy matte. The matte that not only feels great (yes, you read that right – it’s actually comfy) but also lasts for hours and has “a-mazing Instagram selfie” written all over it. Infused with grape seed extract imported from Italy, this smear-proof lip soother delivers mega color that won’t budge, even after a close encounter with a cappuccino cup.
My Experience with Milani Color Statement Moisture Matte Lipstick – Matte Passion:
Packaging: This lipstick comes in a beautiful gold packaging with a band at the bottom matching the color of the lipstick.
The cap shuts tight and there is no danger of the cap coming off loose even if you toss it around in your bag. Even though the packaging is quite simple, it looks classy and doesn’t feel flimsy at all.
Shade: Matte Passion is a gorgeous reddish-orange shade. It is a warm shade which will suit most Indian skin tones. I love that this shade is not neon and hence can be carried off pretty easily. I would surely recommend this shade to anyone who wants to try out an orange lipstick but is scared to try out something full-on orange.
The pigmentation of the lipstick is quite decent. While one swipe does cover the lips, I prefer 2 swipes to get a more opaque finish. Multiple swipes does not make the application patchy.
Texture/Finish/Pigmentation: This lipstick is quite creamy and applies nicely on the lips. There is no tug and the lipstick is quite easy to apply.
The finish of the lipstick is a gorgeous matte. It is not a flat, dull looking matte. Instead, it has the slightest sheen which adds a little dimension to the finish.
The lipstick does not feel drying, but it is not overly moisturizing either. The lipstick does accentuate the lines and dry patches on the lips a bit. I would recommend exfoliation of the lips prior to the lipstick application.
The matte formula makes the lipstick stay long – it stays on for around 5-6 hours with light meals. It leaves a slight stain behind.

Cons of Milani Color Statement Moisture Matte Lipstick – Matte Passion:
