Milani Cosmetics’ Color Statement Lipstick in Chilled Brandy

I thought this color might be cooler than it actually is. When I apply it - either a swatch on my hand, or on my lips - the color goes kind of brick-ish red. It leans far warmer than the bullet, or even the name, implies. That's a little bit frustrating to me: the color depth is great, the hint of a deeper red without a truly deep color that demands to be center-stage. But…it leans just a bit warm.

(This shade has also been discontinued by Milani. Why, Milani? Why??? Dammit, now I'm going to have to hit Ebay…)
