Today’s review is a confession and a review. This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a small commission if you make a purchase using these links.

First up, the confession. I own what I think is easily over 50 lip color products. I am pretty terrible about actually wearing them. Wearing a bold lip color is a statement – I had a week of trying out bold lip colors last year, and I really need to try again. However, in the meantime, I’ve bonded with a lipstick.

I had read about the Milani Color Statement Matte Lipsticks on Nouveau Cheap (anyone who shops at the drugstore for beauty items needs to be following this blog), and when I was at CVS, I checked them out. I ended up purchasing 2 colors of the matte lipsticks, Naked and Darling.

Milani Matte Naked is totally my new favorite lipstick. It’s matte, so it is long-lasting, but it isn’t so drying that I want to cover it in lip balm. It’s not quite a “my lips but better” color, it skews a bit too brown on me for that. I think the reason I love it so much is the balance between putting color on my lips that is enough to be noticed without being overwhelming.

Plus, the price is pretty amazing. These are about $6 at the drugstore. I think the word on Matte Naked in particular is out because I have had trouble finding it. Once I realized how much I liked it, I have been hunting for extras to stock up.
