Today’s post is a comparison post with the three nude shades I own by Milani. One was limited edition and is no longer available, and that is what truly compelled me to compare them. I wanted to see if the new “Matte Beauty” is a lot like “Enchanted Topaz.” Maybe someone that follows me was wondering the same thing? I don’t know, but this post is happening anyway.
For starters, I do have separate posts with swatches of both Matte Naked and Matte Beauty. I will link those at the end of this post. Matte Naked came out with the first batch of new Milani Moisture Matte lipsticks, and Matte Beauty is part of the newer line. Enchanted Topaz came out before both Matte Naked and Beauty, I believe with a holiday set. The packaging is different, and the color was beautiful! I do still prefer the typical all gold packaging with the gold top, personally.
Swatches from left to right: Matte Naked, Enchanted Topaz, Matte Beauty
Okay, so, the first thing I noticed is that all three of these shades are pretty different. Neither Matte Beauty or Matte Naked are very close to Enchanted Topaz. I love all three of these shades, and I think they’re wonderful nudes! However, I did find that Enchanted Topaz seems to be a way drier formula than the new line of matte lipsticks. I don’t particularly mind because the more matte the better to me, and I view the mattest of formulas as a challenge to improve my lip game. If you do not feel the same way and your first experience with a matte Milani lipstick was Enchanted Topaz and you wanted to toss baby snails onto hot pavement, have no fear, the formulas are different.
The moisture matte (newer) formula is way more comfortable on the lips than Enchanted Topaz was. If you didn’t snag Enchanted Topaz, or you’re running low on it because you loved the heck out of it, there are now two other brown-nude shades to choose from!
What do you think of these swatches? What are your thoughts on the differences and/or similarities?
Also, if you like comparison posts like these, let me know or give me suggestions! Doing comparisons kinda helps me out as well, because I have a problem with buying about 10 of the same color…except for red. I will never stop buying every red lipstick.
Anyway, I hope you all enjoyed this post or found it helpful in some way! I hope you’re all having lovely days!
