Milani Lipstick in Enchanted Ruby

There’s something kind of vintage ’40s glam about Milani’s new deep matte red limited edition Enchanted Ruby Lipstick in ($6.49). I sure love how the matte finish looks in pics! If your lip sitch isn’t as dry as mine, you’ll probably be able to pull this off, no problem, but I find the texture a tad powdery and dry for me by itself…so I usually end up popping a gloss on top.


Enraptured by Enchanted Ruby? You can find it (and its enchanting cousin Enchanted Topaz) casting spells now at CVS and Walgreens stores.

  1. I really like this color! Love deep reds and have a new found love for Burgundy too. But the powdery dry texture is a real issue. I don’t have very dry lips but I don’t like the look of most matte lipsticks on my lips.

    I absolutely love intense red like this for myself! I like a good deep red just a touch away from vampy but very intense! This is gorgeous!

    Such a gorgeous red! I love it on you! Why couldn’t Milani make these a tad creamier though? No one likes powdery looking lips lol

  9. Erin says:

    Love the color but you’re right it looks too dry… Not as bad as the other one though.

    This is a lovely colour on you. 🙂

  11. Tatiana says:

    That is such a gorgeous color!! Looks fabulous on you. I’d like to find a dupe that isn’t quite so matt and is a little bit moisturizing.

  12. Rachel R. says:

    That color is absolutely gorgeous! It looks fantastic on you. Between this, the Enchanted Topaz, and the Costellation liners, I’ve got to get to a Milani display pronto.

  13. Sylirael says:

    I absolutely can’t do powdery dry finished on my lips, but the colour of this lipstick is most definitely gorgeous! Makes me think of Christmas!

    I just purchased 2 of these Milani lipsticks and it’s like I have to scrape the products onto my lips! I love the shades, but the texture is way too dry to use.

      Hi Savannah,

      Ooh! You know what? I don’t think I have that MAC Lip Pencil. Thank you for the recommendation. I have Dubonnet and need an excuse to bust it out. 🙂

  16. This is such a gorgeous shade, you should re-create the Dolce & Gabbana SS15 look with this lipstick)

    What a beautiful, bold shade for fall!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kim,

      Right? I just wish it was more moisturizing, le sigh!

      How’s the weather like out your way? It’s cooler here today, and it finally feels like fall.

      • Kim says:

        Oh, I hear you – we’re heading into dry lip weather as it is! It’s been quite cool (high 40s this AM but warming up to low 60s). Last Sunday was a dramatic change – high of 78. That just means everyone is getting colds. 🙂

    I’ve been on the look out for a matter lipstick, although I have quite dry lips that are prone to flaking during the colder seasons, I still want to try the look. Matte lips are a little more sophisticated and tamed compared to glossy lips which are more on the ‘playful’ side. At such an amazingly low price, I might just ignore the fact these lipsticks could be a disaster waiting to happen on my lips, but that’s a risk I’m willing to take. I mean JUST LOOK AT THAT PACKAGING! It’s so mature and classy!
