I’m here to share pictures and swatches with you of Milani Cosmetics’ latest release: their Ultimate Lip Vault. I was graciously gifted this collection of 17 lipsticks, 12 liquid lipsticks, and 7 glosses and wanted to share swatches and thoughts on them here.
The lip vault itself retails for $143.99. There is a price of $289.64 which I’m assuming is the price all of the products in the vault would be. The Vault houses 3 of their lip product offerings: Bold Color Statement Matte Lipsticks, Amore Satin Matte Lip Cremes, and Keep It Full Nourishing Lip Plumpers.
I have owned all three of these lip finishes for a while now and can tell you with certainty they are all great! Even if the Vault is not an option for you, I hope these swatches help next time you’re at the drugstore and curious about these lip products!
Before this lovely package was sent to me, I came across these lipsticks at Walmart and picked up one shade: I Am Smart, a cooler nude shade. After using it and loving it, I stopped by a CVS and picked up the shades I am Pretty and I am Fierce. Having used these shades repeatedly for several months, I can honestly say I would recommend them. They retail for $6.99 on Milani’s website, but you can find them for less at Walmart and find them at good deals at Walgreens or CVS.
The formula itself is a satin matte. They are labeled as a matte lipstick but do not have a drying effect or tough texture that some matte lipsticks can have. They can transfer, especially the colored shades, so I would recommend a lipliner under or just watching what you eat/drink.
If there is no consumption of food/beverage involved then they can last through a complete work day. I really like that Milani has put a few nude options as some companies only put out one and they don’t work for everyone. I am Pretty is the perfect nude for me!

While I’m not the biggest fan of liquid lipsticks, I find the Amore Satin Matte lip cremes to be comfortable on the lips. I don’t experience the dry, crusty flaking that some other liquid lipsticks have given me. These last for several hours before they begin to fade and reapplication is required.
Ive worn these alone, over lipliner, and have used gloss over them. I’ve found using gloss does help the color to fade quicker, but I’m currently obsessed with gloss right now so I don’t really mind.

What can I say about these that I haven’t said before?! I discovered these a few months back and quickly fell in love with them! They definitely compare to higher end plumping glosses such as the buxom ones, but at a fraction of the price.
Some of the shades – usually the ones with glitter – tend to apply more sheer while the ones without glitter have some tint to them.
I have tried every shade provided along with the shades I bought and have loved every single one. There is not a dud in the bunch. I won’t ramble too much about these because I’ve done so on previous blog posts and on my Instagram page.
These are a must have and I would encourage you to pick up at least one!
Well, there you have it! I hope you enjoyed my mini review and swatch post on the Lip Vault offered by Milani!
