Beautiful warm toned red, that has a slight orange base. It smells like vanilla (almost like a MAC lipstick) The packaging is elegant and pretty. It applies smoothly , does not settle into lip lines, but it does transfer easily. It does not make my lips feel dry, which is a plus. The lipstick has a different shape , instead of the typical pointed lipstick, it's flat on both sides. At first it made it harder to apply, but now I find it to be easier, as it applies easier to the top of my lips to define their shape. The fact that it's a replica of Marilyn's favorite shade is a bonus.

Oh, Besame! I love your schtick, with all the dinky jars of fragrant powder and the elegant lippie tubes and cakey mascaras, and I love the story of how you were founded and the beliefs of the company. For vintage die-hards (and here I plead somewhat guilty), these products have such allure. I love the color Victory Red, but the quality is somewhat wanting--gritty and smeary, leaving behind a lurid Kool-aid magenta stain. There are--I hate to say it--better options out there for these classic colors.

This is a cool, clear pinky red that ticks all the usual boxes we’ve come to expect from Besame. It’s part of their beautiful, highly researched Snow White Collection in collaboration with Disney Studios. The entire collection is stunning. I highly recommend you check out Emily Noel’s YT video review for pictures of the whole collection. As for the lipstick, Snow White’s Red is one of four colours in the collection (a pale pink, a coral pink, the red and a deep cocoa-violet), priced at $24. The packaging is lovely: a gold tube with blue tracing of Snow White’s flower, the apple blossom, very luxe looking. The formula itself goes on smoothly, giving complete coverage in one stroke. I blot and find it lasts for several hours, although I always re-apply after eating. This is a comfortable, long-wearing lipstick that remained fresh looking for six to seven hours when I wasn’t eating. It’s a beautiful soft red for fair to medium skin tones. Even brown skinned girls could wear this well if they are looking for a light, clear red. Highly recommended.

At first, I thought this looked silly, I wondered why anyone would buy it. Months later I purchased it on impulse, and won't be without it now. It blends makeup and dusts powder off better than anything I've tried, from cheap to ultra-expensive brushes to blotting with everything imaginable. Just do your makeup, then brush/pat lightly over my face and it's all just flawless looking, even the nose corners. It also cleans off easily enough by brushing on a microfiber cloth, so I rarely have to wash it. I store it in the original box to keep it in shape. Do yourself a favor and purchase this brush.

I was pretty disappointed in the packaging of this product. I had previously bought the lipstick, the lipstick matches, and the cake mascara, all of which have glamorous, retro packaging. This powder came in a delightful box, but the actual product is underwhelming. It's a simple plastic tub with a puff and a sifter. The sifter is very annoying for on the go touchups, as you need to open the inner lid to get to the powder. The violet powder is a light lavender colour with a light scent. I really couldn't tell the difference between this purple powder and an ordinary translucent powder. This powder didn't help with oil control or brightening. I love the idea of the lavender powder, but I wouldn't repurchase unless the packaging got a glamorous update to make it unique.
