I recall when Lime Crime’s Velvetines came out (gorgeous!!!), and since then I feel like there have been a ton of matte lip colors on the market – not just in lipstick tubes either.
The Milani Amore Matte Lip Cremes are packaged more like a gloss, with a flocked applicator. Jess from Ink361 shared a bunch of swatches, as have a few blogs out there. I haven’t seen these in store as yet, but I am sure they will be cropping up – very Autumnal in feeling I think.
Nouveau Cheap also shares some comparisons from her readers, as well as comments and additional shots! I was sad to see that one of two of the vampiest of the lot – Flirt – has some streaking issues. The others appear to be pretty opaque. Romance has a bit of that too, actually (bummer – great red!) but maybe if it is really layered it will be nicer!
They appear a bit different on the already pink-base of the lips, though – I like crush on the lips better than swatched, for example.
