Let me start off by saying that I have heard a lot of good things about Milani's Amore Matte formula, so I had high hopes for this product. Unfortunately, those hopes were dashed. It could be just this particular color or maybe I got a bad batch but I have to say I am NOT impressed. To start off with the formula is somewhat streaky and for being a metallic there's hardly anything metallic-looking about it. It looks like a regular matte and you can barely detect the sparkles at all. It also crumbles like CRAZY off of my lips from the get go (a problem I also have with the Kylie lip kits which, ironically, these smell identical too). I've tried it on dry lips, with lip balm, primer, etc. and nothing seems to remedy the problem. It's a pretty color but if it won't stay on my lips and it's going to crumble all over my face then I consider this a complete dud. The only reason it gets two stars is because the smell of it (which reminds me of Red Vines) is TRULY divine.
