999 Matte (999) is a bright, medium red with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The color coverage was nearly opaque in one layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips. The lipstick had a very lightweight, velvety consistency that glided easily over my lips and felt comfortable to wear. The color wore well for seven hours and was non-drying over time.
