Today, I am reviewing a lipstick which has been around for some time, but I picked this shade only recently. I am talking about the Milani Color Statement Moisture Matte lipstick in the shade “Confident.” Quite a few shades from this range have been already reviewed on IMBB (Flamingo Pose, Uptown Mauve, Matte Iconic, Orchid Moisture). Read on to find out more about this shade.
$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 Matte Confident Color Statement Moisture Matte Lipstick:
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 Confident” is a gorgeous deep maroon red shade. It is a warm shade which will suit most Indian skin tones and will look especially good with Indian traditional dresses.
The pigmentation of the lipstick is quite strong. One swipe is enough to get a lovely opaque finish. Multiple swipes does not make the application patchy.
Texture/Finish/Pigmentation: Even though this is a matte lipstick, it is quite creamy and applies very easily. There is no tug at all and the lipstick glides smoothly over the lips. The finish of the lipstick is a gorgeous matte. It is not a flat, dull-looking matte. Instead, it has a slight sheen which adds a little dimension to the finish.
The lipstick does not feel drying but it is not overly moisturizing either. It does not cling to any dry patches and I do not use any lip balm underneath. I would still recommend exfoliation of the lips prior to the lipstick application for a more even finish.
The matte formula makes the lipstick stay long – it stays on for around 5-6 hrs with light meals. It leaves a slight stain behind.
Pros of Milani Matte Confident Color Statement Moisture Matte Lipstick:
- Gorgeous red shade.
- Strong pigmentation.
- Nice matte finish.
- Good staying power – around 5-6 hours.
- Classy packaging.
- Very affordable.
Cons of Milani Matte Confident Color Statement Moisture Matte Lipstick:
- Exfoliation is recommended for dry and chapped lips.
