These lipsticks totally lived up to my expectations! The colors are all lovely, the lipstick doesn't dry out my lips, and it doesn't taste like anything - yay! Too many lipsticks have a weird plasticky floral taste, which is disgusting. I need more colors!

At first this is a beautiful, true to tube deep blood red. It is so pretty, but it turns the same bright pink as so many of the Besame lipsticks do on me. I wish I knew what the pigment or ingredient was that turns colors so pink on me so that I could avoid it.

After purchasing the sampler set from Sephora, I was convinced to buy several full size lipsticks. I have shades 1935 Cherry Red, 1945 American Beauty, 1946 Red Velvet, and 1969 Dusty Rose. The pigmentation on these lipsticks is outstanding. The formula for Cherry Red and American Beauty is a bit drier than the others, though not crumbly or hard to work with. These are more of a matte than a cream or satin finish, and they wear comfortably all day. I find applying in the manner suggested by Besame helps with staying power: apply, blot, apply again, blot again. Pros:highly pigmentedgreat staying powerrich, comfortable formulabeautiful packagingCons:some shades drier than otherspricey

I initially picked up the mini-size sampler set from Sephora after hearing some pretty good things about the brand, and was convinced to purchase several full size lipsticks. The formula is rich, creamy, and pigmented for the most part, though some shades are dryer than others. Dusty Rose is a beautiful mauvey color on my skintone (NC25 for reference) that makes for a wonderful daytime look. It applies well without much fading even after eating. I find it helps to apply it in the manner suggested by Besame: apply, blot, apply again, blot again. I can go a full day without needing to touch up if I apply it like this. Pros:creamy formula that dries comfortably mattegorgeous packaginghighly pigmentedserious staying powerCons:pricey

I too love Besame lipsticks, and am a sucker for pinks and lighter formulas. I had to get Mint Rose and I’m glad I did. I feel that they are moisturizing while wearing, and do leave a stain after it wears off, which I don’t mind. Next I need the berry shade. Also, FYI, try Portrait Peach and Portrait Pink lipsticks if you haven’t, perfect for summer.
