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 …Read more

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 …

I have been lusting after this for years. But was afraid to spend so much on something that may not work for me. I was thrilled to see the sample set recently. All of the colors are just beautiful. Highly pigmented, long lasting, non drying. The texture is creamy and goes on like silk. I can't believe how long the color lasts. Red is one of those colors that shows any bit of wear. I …Read more

I have wanted to try this lipstick for a long time, but wanted to see it in person, rather than try to choose colors online. Woohoo! One of my fave stores is now carrying the line. I bought Cherry and Merlot, and I am thrilled to pieces. The size is adorable, and the packaging enchanting. I love the slanted tips, and have had no problems with breakage. These colors are amazing. Heavy, matte …Read more

I actually love the packaging and don't mind that the lipstick does not fully retract. The tubes are, indeed, tiny, but if you consider it's all lipstick and very little packaging, it's an excellent value. I read on Gabrielle's Facebook page that 1940s lipsticks were molded using bullet casings. Pretty cool! Plus the color is deeply pigmented, so a little goes a long way …Read more

Red Hot Red is a perfect neutral red on PPP me, with very low pigmented lips. I tried a number of red shades in the store, and this one was the most flattering. There was another more blue based red that was beautiful, but too vivid for me to wear on a regular basis
The consistency is perfect, creamy, soft satin finish, does not bleed, stays on and does not dry out my lips. Lovely vanilla …

My lippies might not show it, but I absolutely love this lipstick. I am realistic though about the drawbacks of the product.
First the good: Most of the colors are absolutely wonderful. I never used to wear dark lipsticks because they always seemed to look 'off' on me, but with these? I wear red to work and feel gorgeous rather than like I'm making a scene. The shades and …

I thought I had found my perfect vintage lipstick in Carmine. Small size yeah, but such a great consistency and the color is so gorgeous. And at the discounted price of $6 a pop, I could have stocked up on lovely red lips to last me a lifetime.
Well, good thing I didn't.
because on about the fifth use, the lipstick completely snapped of at the base and fell out of the tube. I …

Size doesn't matter when you have pigmentation and quality like this! I personally love the bullet lipsticks - they let you bring several options along where there was only room for one before.

I have about a dozen shades of these babies, having taken advantage of the sales going on over at Besame online. (They're retiring their first line of products.)

The …

After placing my first order with Besame cosmetics, I recieved a lipstick as a gift with my purchase. As many others have stated, I was honestly surprised by the size of the lipstick. It's literally about the size of my pinky. Aside from that though, I can say that I'm very pleased! The shade I recieved is called 'Wild Orchid' which is a cool deep pinkish purple shade. The …Read more
