I love any kind of orange, coral, or red lip color, and Carmine is a perfect go-to in that category. On my pale skin it is a bright orange-red, true to the name "Carmine." It has a satin finish and lasts really well, and it is very pigmented to boot. I don't feel like it slides around a lot, which is a bonus, because on me it doesn't require a lipliner. I love the bullet …Read more

My HG lip color. On my golden complexion Carmine is wonderfully bright and I get tons of compliments when I wear this shade. It wears incredibly well, smells and tastes great and the packaging is retro and uber femme. In a day when lipstick can cost upwards of $90 this is a true bargain.

I've avoided orange shades since seventh grade, when I made a profoundly uninformed purchase of a pot of frosted gloss in the most unfortunate shade of orange. But after seeing many, many reviewers rave about this one, and loving all things Besame, I took a chance.

I'm glad I did. Yes, Carmine looks scary in the tube, but when I put it on, it became a wonderful pinky/orangey …

Orange lipstick wasn't tops on my list, but when I got a sampler of Besame lip colors and tried the Carmine I was really surprised how neutral this color was. Granted, my application is very light and I dab the lipstick on my lips till I get a saturated matte color and then blend it with a brush, but that's how I apply all my lipsticks. It lasts till most of the day, has no taste or …Read more

A highly pigmented creamy lipstick that has incredible staying power.
It is bright orangey-coral on me, not red at all.
This is my first Besame lipstick, and if they are all this great, it won't be my last

This has pretty packaging and delivered a true pop of color to my lips. I think it is something well worth buying again and I love the vintage style of it. It is really well pigmented too which was a plus. The only thing I don't LOVE is that the ingredients aren't fully natural but overall it's a step up from many others.

I am taking off one lippie b/c I don't like this color. It is a bright orange, not my style. Otherwise, this is a heavily pigmented l/s, just like I like them. The color stays true and lasts on the lips a long, long time. The lipstick will wear off if you use your mouth (LOL), like for example, I drank something through a straw and there was a little no-lipstick line where the straw was …Read more

I love this lipstick on my fair skin! Add a beautiful punch of color! Packaging is BEAUTIFUL! Gold casing, very vintage. The lipstick had wonderful staying power, and is really moisturizing!

Time warp lipstick! Carmine is THE 40's lipcolor. Beautiful bright red-orange color that looks amazing with my fair-medium skin. I feel like Kathryn Hepburn in this lipstick. Super creamy and pigmented and has a satiny finish.
Yes, it's tiny (smaller then my pinkie) and yes, I'm loath to put the cap back on for fear of cutting a chunk off the stick. But god! The color and …

I love this unique coral-red. I really love love bold bright reds, and I think this is the brightest boldest one I own. If you're looking for something glamorous and wild, this is it. The packaging is gorgeous, but it seems like you get a tiny amount of product. I tend to end up throwing out half of an old unused lipstick, so I prefer a smaller sized product. A little bit really does go a …Read more
