Lipstick -Besame -Snow White Red

on 12/14/2017 10:54:00 PM

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.

Makeup Brushes -Besame -Boudoir Long Hair Finishing Powder Brush

on 11/5/2017 7:06:00 PM

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.

Loose Powders -Besame -Brightening Violet Powder

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.


Lipstick -Besame -1922 Blood Red

I get compliments every time I wear this. Subtle vanilla scent, flavor. Doesn't bleed or feather, which IMO is imperative for darker colors. Love the vintage packaging, too!

Lipstick -Besame -Enchanting Lipstick

Gorgeous packaging and beautiful colours.

I love, love, love the idea of historical shades being re-created and I actually own most of the historical Revlon shades too.I also think the packaging is perfect - so beautiful and classy!

However, for the price of this lipstick I have a few too many issues.

First off I found it to be quite drying for me. On me, it is more of a matte finish than a satin finish and I have to top up regularly with some balm to keep it fresh-looking and moisturised.

Second isn't a huge deal but I really don't like the shape of the top. It's awkward to get into the cupid's bow. This lipstick is not an everyday one for me. I put it up there with my LimeCrime Velvetine that requires a little extra attention and care and I can't just slick it on and forget about it.

However, like the Velvetine, when it's done right and looked after throughout the day/night it looks great.
