Milani Amore Matte Lip Crème in “Precious” Review & Swatch-
Hey pretty ladies!
As you all must be aware of already, Nykaa has recently launched Milani cosmetics & though the prices are a bit steep, the entire blogosphere has gone into a tizzy! As soon as I saw the launch, I knew I had to get at least a couple of their very famous Amore Matte Lip Cremes & today I am featuring one called “Precious”.
What Milani Says-
It’s time to put your lipsticks on notice. The Amore Matte Lip Creme has arrived! With a revolutionary, highly saturated liquid-to-matte formula, this one is for that ultimate red carpet look!
- It dries to a soft, velvety finish for fuller-looking lips.
- Its double-sided, flexible plush applicator hugs the contours of lips, working to lock in bold, opaque color.
- Non-sticky, smooth and ready for all-night wear (up to 16 hours).
- It is the ultimate transfer resistant kiss-me-matte.

How to use-
Using the Amore Matte Lip Creme’s double-sided plush applicator, glide the liquid matte across your lips smoothly, starting at the cupid’s bow in a criss-cross pattern, then along the outer corners of lips, and the bottom of lip. Next, fill in the rest of the lips as if you are connecting-the-dots.

My take on the Milani Amore Matte Lip Crème in “Precious”-
The amore matte lip creme comes in a sturdy square plastic tube with a lovely double-sided plush spongy applicator which picks up enough product to saturate both your lips in a single swipe. Convenient & travel friendly 🙂
The pigmentation is superb & a single swipe provide rich, saturated color for even those with a lot of lip pigmentation <3
The texture is very runny & lightweight & is very easy to apply evenly on lips. Do work with it quickly though, as it dries up & settles super duper fast into a complete matte finish without any tacky/sticky feel to that extent where you feel like you have applied nothing on lips. Being a complete matte, it does have a tendency to accentuate lip lines though.
The shade ” Precious” is a gorgeous rose pink shade which was sold out on the first morning of the launch itself! It is a perfect medium everyday rosy pink shade for the spring/summer & will look extremely flattering on light-medium complexions 🙂
The staying power is amazing & is completely transfer proof, kiss proof & stayed on me for an amazing 7 hours till I came back & removed it. Also, in spite of being completely matte, it did not dry my lips out <3
These lip cremes have a delicious caramel fragrance which I loveee & it lingers for quite a few minutes after application.
Pros of the Milani Amore Matte Lip Crème in “Precious”:
1> Convenient & travel friendly packaging.
2> Runny & lightweight texture- applies evenly without tacky/heavy feel.
3> Amazing pigmentation- single swipe needed.
4> The shade ” Precious” is a lovely rosy pink shade perfect for daily wear.
5> Lasts on my lips for 7+ hours!
6> Did not dry out my lips.
7> Lovely caramel fragrance 😀
Cons of the Milani Amore Matte Lip Crème in “Precious”:
In spite of being a drugstore brand, it is priced quite high here :-/

My Rating: 4.7/5!
Do I recommend the Milani Amore Matte Lip Crème in “Precious”?
Milani Amore Matte Lip Crème in “Precious” is the liquid lipstick I have been wearing every time lately in spite of not being a fan of matte finish *_*. It is a gorgeous pink shade, settles quickly into a lightweight finish, has amazing staying power & does not transfer at all. It’s also rumoured to be a very close dupe of Kylie’s Posie K 😉 Winner all the way! Recommended!
