I Am Fabulous

Milani I Am Fabulous Bold Color Statement Matte Lipstick ($6.99 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. The color coverage was opaque in one layer, while the lipstick had a smooth, lightly creamy texture–almost more velvety, as there was glide but no wetness. The color went on evenly and didn’t sink into my lip lines noticeably (far less than most shades in the range, too). It wore nicely for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating over time.

I Am Awesome

Milani I Am Awesome Bold Color Statement Matte Lipstick ($6.99 for 0.14 oz.) is a light-medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a smooth, velvety consistency that was comfortable to apply as it glided easily across my lips, but it separated along my deeper lip lines slightly. Due to it being a lighter shade, it seemed more noticeable and worsened somewhat over time as the color wore on. This shade lasted for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating on me.

I Am Smart

Milani I Am Smart Bold Color Statement Matte Lipstick ($6.99 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium pink with strong, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The pigmentation was opaque in a single stroke, while the color went on evenly and smoothly, though it separated along my deeper lip lines and emphasized some imperfection in texture (despite exfoliating prior). The lipstick had a lightweight, more velvety feel–creamy but drier than a true “cream” finish, which often feels wet–that was comfortable to apply and to wear. It stayed on well for four hours with the color not sinking too much more into my lip lines over time. The formula felt non-drying while worn.

The formula is supposed to be “bold, hydrating color” with “intense color in just one swipe.” The finish is more of a “soft matte” to true satin (a little more sheen than “soft matte” to my eye), and the finish will wear down to a more matte finish within an hour or two of wear (or faster if one blots). The texture felt lightweight, thinner on my lips but felt lightly creamy with more of a velvety slip as I glided the product across my lips. It didn’t tug, but the product had good hold and wore between four and seven hours on me, depending on the shade.

In my experience, the more velvety slip seems to result in the color pulling away a bit more along my lip lines and can be more prone to accentuating any imperfections of my lips (texture, flakiness, and so forth). A few shades were on the drying side, while most were non-drying. The majority of the range was pigmented with payoff typically ranging between semi-opaque and opaque. The formula has a sweet, vanilla scent but no discernible taste to me.
