Milani I Am Strong Bold Color Statement Matte Lipstick ($6.99 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark burgundy red with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied unevenly, especially along the inner portion of my lips, where it was noticeably patchy. The texture felt velvety, thin, and lightweight but didn't feel clingy when worn. I expected it to settle into my lip lines a lot, but it was quite slight. This shade lasted well for five and a half hours, felt a touch drying over time, and left a subtle, reddish stain behind.
