Beautiful Stranger is a muted, medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had rich pigmentation that applied evenly to my lips in a single stroke. The texture was smooth, velvety, and creamy enough to glide on but not to the point where it felt overly emollient, though there was a smidgen of product that sank into my lip lines; it wasn't noticeable in person, just in the close-up photos. It wore well for five and a half hours and felt hydrating over time.
