Kylie, Milani, Cailyn Metallic Lip


Metallic lips are all over my media social making me itchy to try this trend. Despite not being very adventurous in terms of make up, I decided to try 3 fun colors that I don't have in my lip collection. The first one is the one that started it all, Kylie Matte Metal Lipstick in Reign. Second is Milani Amore Mattalics Lip Creme in Dramatic Diva. And the third is Cailyn Star Wave Mattalic Lip Tint in Andromeda.



Kylie metallic collection has 5 shades and all are very gorgeous except for the dark blue one.. I don't think I will ever wear that one. But never say never right? Anyway, this one :
- has good pigmentation with full coverage after one or two layers. 
- a faint vanilla smell
- easy to apply with good applicator
- not drying at all
- sheen with micro glitters (only if you look closely)
- not kiss proof with matte finish
- cool packaging

I had high hopes for this one since this line created all that hype about metallic lips and it did not disappoint! This one is the easiest to apply from all three and you can definitely see the metal effect. I haven't worn it more than 15 minutes so I'm not sure about feathering.


Milani Amore Mattalics Lip Creme comes in various colorful range and for only $8.99 you can definitely try lots of color! I actually have Chromatic Addict shade in the mail and will update when it arrives. My impression about this item in Dramatic Diva :
- has good pigmentation with full coverage after two or three layers
- STRONG vanilla smell (but gone once you applied the lip creme)
- easy to apply with good applicator. I think Milani has the best applicators of all three. Long and very sturdy
- not too drying
- no glitter
- completely kiss proof with matte finish
- okay packaging with no box

I must say, I am very much impressed with the pigmentation. I mean, just how gorgeous this barbie pink color is? It's the least metal from all three but I feel like that's what makes this one is the most wearable. It's more like a sateen finish. And I love the fact that it's completely kiss proof!


As for Cailyn Star Wave Mattalic Lip Tint, at first I was really into this color but upon seeing it in photos, it looks really washed out on me. Nevertheless, I am keeping this one because I don't have a lavender color lipstick. I think this one :
- has good pigmentation with full coverage after one or two layers
- a strange mechanical smell 
- easy to apply with good applicator, kinda flimsy tho
- most drying of all three
- sheen with micro glitters (only if you look closely)
- kiss proof with matte finish
- standard packaging, comes with a box

Again, I always love lipstick that is kiss proof. Maybe it's the color but this one is my least favorite. Perhaps it will look better with a more prominent blush or a heavy eye make up. I do think it looks really cool with my silver top.

I tried really hard to find Colorpop metallic lip line as well but I had no such luck. Maybe it's because Colorpop put the cheapest price tag ($6) that colors run out fast.

Anyway, I don't think I will ever wear Andromeda shade out of my house but I am excited to try Reign on my next weekend date. And I will try to take notes on how it will survive from food and drinks.

Wishing everyone a productive Monday!
