Enchanting Lipstick - 1946 Red Velvet
5.0
Created with Sketch.
from

3 months ago

I got this in a mini set from Sephora a while back (like years). I am neutral leaning nw20, deep winter, brown/hazel eyes, 3n hair. I LOVE this red. Sadly it is always sold out on the Besame site. I hope they still make it and it just sells out fast. It is right up there with my other favorite reds, Revlon Fifth Avenue Red (LE) & VGI The name of this lipstick pretty accurately describes the color. It is a deep red velvet shade. Not vampy, not too cherry or blue based. Definitely not orangey at all. If I was on my phone typing this I would be adding heart emojis right now. Some reds can be pretty but require a bit more blush or seem too much for simple wear. Red Velvet 1946 is just captivating. My eyes looked dark and rich like I had eye makeup (just had this lippie on, that's it). My cheeks looked slightly flushed with the perfect amount of color. My lips were so gorgeous, bold but not over powering. I looked in the mirror and the first things to pop were my eyes and lips. At 45, I will take all the popping I can get! I love, love, love this red on me.

After anxiously waiting for my online order to arrive, I was disappointed in this lipstick. On the positive side, the packaging is lovely on my counter (although a bit cheap feeling). I actually like the shape of the bullet quite a bit. When applied per the instructions, I am able to get a crisp line and the staying power is fairly good. It feels okay on the lips, not overly drying. I love the idea of vintage lipsticks. What I am most disappointed in, is the color. I feel this is easily duped. It is a medium red with a PINK undertone. Once applied, I feel it looks very flat, and needs to be layered with another color to give it some dimension. I considered returning this, however, after paying return shipping and a possible restocking fee, I have decided to keep it. I doubt I will order from Besame in the future, since I don’t live in California (where the store is located) and have to rely on the color descriptions to make a selection. I wish Besame sold sample sizes, so customers could try out several colors before investing $22 in a full size.
