Milani Cosmetics Color Statement Matte Lipstick in swatches review on BeautyJudy

The Milani Color Statement lipsticks are some of my favorite drug store lippies on the market!

I was excited when the brand launched eight matte lipsticks in great, staple hues.

I’ve actually got swatches of 10 Color Statement lippies today – two are from the regular line! I’ll share those last. Let’s take a closer look at these pretty-packaged lippies!

Milani Cosmetics Color Statement Matte Lipstick in swatches review on BeautyJudy

Color Statement matte lipsticks include grape seed extract for hydration, and have good pigmentation. I didn’t experience feathering, although I would recommend exfoliating your lips prior to wearing, especially in winter months, which is when I wore most of these. I also have another trick I learned since exfoliating didn’t help me much. I dabbed the slightest bit of lip balm on my lips and rubbed my lips together. It was very minimal balm, but enough to make a smoother surface and moisturizer my lips before adding the matte to it.

I’ve got lip swatches from wearing each one, so I’ll jump right in to sharing these colors in action!

Matte Innocence:

Matte Innocence is a pale pink nude. You can see on my lips that when it comes to matte lippies, exfoliation is important. I worked on that as I wore through all of these matte lippies.

Matte Naked:

Matte Naked is a great nude. It’s a staple in my collection!

Matte Blissful:

Matte Blissful is a nice soft blush pink.

Matte Diva:

Matte Diva is a great hot pink.

Matte Orchid:

Matte Orchid is a more fuchsia hot pink than a straight up hot pink. You can tell that I added just a touch too much lip balm as my base on this one because it looks a little glossy.

Matte Glam:

Matte Glam is a beautiful vampy purple matte.

Matte Passion:

Matte Passion is a fiery red with a hint of orange. I loved this one. Such a beautiful pop of color.

Matte Confident:

Matte Confident is a great true red matte, this is one that I would use as a confidence-boosting, power red lip!

And below are the two that aren’t matte!

Catwalk Pink:

Catwalk Pink is kind of like a lilac-touched pink, or a Barbie pink. Love this!

Power Pink:

Power Pink is like patent leather pink for my lips. It’s the pink version of a bold power lip for me!

Overall, having worn each one, I can say they are well pigmented, wear from the morning until after lunch (of course with some touch up after eating), and did feel light-weight on my lips. Although they are matte, they didn’t feel over drying or tight on my lips.

These lipsticks are available on Milani’s website and at CVS locations nationwide and retail for $5.99 a piece. Not all the colors are currently listed on the website.

Have you picked up any of the Color Statement Matte Lipsticks?! I’d love to know which one you like best!

  • http://beautylitfromwithin.blogspot.com Nidia Doherty

    I picked up Matte Confident, but I think I also need Matte Glam! The lighter ones I couldn’t pull off, but they look really good on you.

    • BeautyJudy

      Thanks Nidia! Both Matte Confident and Matte Glam will look great on you!

  • Allison @neversaydiebeauty

    I liked these too, though truth be told, I like the Jordana Modern Mattes even better. I do love Power Pink and Catwalk Pink though because they are the regular Color Statement formula and less drying for me super-dry lips

    • BeautyJudy

      I love the Jordana ones too! I think these worked well for me putting that little bit of balm underneath of them. It’s become my favorite trick for all these matte lippies and long-lasting liquid lipsticks!
