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 …

I really love this lipstick and this colour! It's a very blue-based red that fades to a pink. When first applied it's a very glamorous red with a satin finish. The tube takes a little bit of getting used to but overall is easy to control. The packaging itself is a beautiful gold bullet tube. It's quite dainty and petite:)

One day I wore it and had an …

What's not to like about this? It's a pow, in-your-face kind of retro red in a cute little gold case. This definitely has blue undertones. So, if you need a red that veers in that direction, this will work. Like many of my favorite matte reds (Russian Red, for instance) it can be drying. But I solve that by putting a teensy bit of Almay's Apple A Day liquid lip balm over it. I …Read more

This color is truly THE classic red. While I realize some people take issue with the somewhat smaller than standard size of the tube, it is in no way miniature, and the color is so rich and long lasting for me, it will outlive my other reds for miles.

The only thing that prevents me from rating it a 5 is it is slightly drier than i'd prefer, but not so dry as to be unattractive …

Today I received my Besame lipstick which I have been wanting for a really long time. I chose the Besame Red shade, after reading carefully the shade descriptions in What Katie Did's website.

The package is good. It comes in a red box with golden flower ornamental designs. Inside, it is the lipstick in a burgundy velvet pouch, tied in golden straps with the Besame logo. Very …

I'm a new Besame Cosmetics fan, and I own 7 of the Enchanting lipsticks, but I was disappointed with Besame Red. The color looks gorgeous in the tube, a bright blue red, much like Julie Hewett Femme Noir. Unfortunately, it turned fuchsia on my medium-rose pigmented lips, even though I neutralized my lip pigment first with foundation. My DH knows I am going through an experimental phase with …Read more

This lipstick is not for the faint of heart. It is a bright, 1950s, Betty Draper shade of red with a matte finish. It obviously needs a lip liner, so between the matte finish and liner, it has amazing staying power.

A lot of people have noted the tiny size of the lipstick, which actually doesn't bother me at all, as I don't think I've ever finished a tube of lipstick …

I love this lipstick! The shade is the perfect blue toned bright red, it goes on so easily due to is satiny texture, and lasts all night if you take the time to apply it right - primer, lipliner, blot, powder, lipstick, blot, lipstick. The bullet is small, but the colour is so highly pigmented, and lasts so long, that it easily lasts as long as a cheaper full sized lipstick. The only drawback for …Read more

This color is much too bright for me, I perfer the deeper shades of Noir and Cherry. I bought this color sight unseen during the Beseme clearance so I have bunch of BNIB of this color in my swaps.

The bullet packaging is really pretty if not small and the lids tend to come off and made a mess in my kit.

I purchased the Besame Enchanting lipstick kit in Red, and Besame Red is a creamy, rich, bright red. It's definitely blue-based, and as it wears, it tends to lean fuschia on me (NC25 with warm undertones). The tube is really small, but the formula is very pigmented, so I'm hoping that my tube will last a long time. The texture is matte-ish, but still creamy, and doesn't dry out …Read more
