Milani Cosmetics Moisture Matte Lipstick
I swatched the Milani Cosmetics Moisture Matte Lipstick with my 5 stoke system (per The Read review guidelines). I swatch the lipsticks directly from the tube on dry skin with no primer or sealer. I run the lipstick on my skin 5 times in the same line with light medium pressure.

Product | 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. In eight luxe, go-the-distance shades, from the oh-so-sweet, pale pink Matte Innocence to the va va voom, fiery-red Matte Passion. This matte? So major. – Milani Cosmetics
Pigmentation | Milani Cosmetics Moisture Matte Lipstick is very pigmented. I swatched with my 5 swipe system but I didn’t need that. The pigmentation is so rich you can apply with 1 or 2 swipes and get the same amount of color.
Application | Even though the lipstick is matte it is very smooth and feels very moisturizing without feeling oily or greasy. The color is build-able without being blotchy. The application didn’t drag on the lips and the Moisture Matte formula has a pleasant fruit/vanilla type fragrance.
Texture | The texture is matte but smooth. The color applies slightly shiny but sets to a moist matte.
Longevity | I wore each color for about 6 hours during normal daily activities and didn’t experience any negative effect. I didn’t experience and bleeding and/or smearing. However, I did get a little bit of dryness. The deeper shades did stain my lips a little but was easily wiped with a makeup wipe or alcohol.
