Milani I Am Powerful Bold Color Statement Matte Lipstick ($6.99 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark berry with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that adhered evenly but was difficult to build up much beyond semi-opaque coverage. The texture was lightweight, thin without being clingy, and felt velvety as the lipstick glided easily across my lips. It wore well for five hours and was a touch drying over time, and it left a faint, pinkish stain behind.
