Just got three more Besame lipstick colors, and these are of the pink variety. Don’t get me wrong- -I absolutely adore my Besame reds- -but it’s high time I gave some of their other hues a shot. And I am really glad I did!
In the photos below, you will see lipstick tubes, lipstick swatches, and a new thing I am going to see if I can stick to: lipstick kiss prints! The Besame colors featured in this review are Portrait Pink, Debutante Pink, and Dusty Rose.
While I do my best to capture the lipstick colors as accurately as possible, it’s kind of hard to do. Every lipstick hue seems to alter appearance considering the time of day, the setting, and the type of lighting, among other factors. My favorite of the three Besame lipstick colors pictured above is Dusty Rose, and yet the photos don’t seem to do it justice. I described it to a friend as “…mauve-esque. Kind of an antique-looking, shabby chic shade of pinkish-brown.” Debutante Pink is also a uniquely gorgeous color; I’d describe it as a pinkish-lavender with a gentle, frosty shimmer. Maybe because a different formula is needed to create the frosty shimmer, Debutante Pink seems more creamy and moist than the other Besame lipsticks I’ve tried. It really is a beautiful lipstick, although I think Dusty Rose looks better on my complexion. Portrait Pink is a more natural hue for my complexion; a soft, pretty pink that doesn’t draw too much attention.
I must have said it before, and I am sure it shows in the amount of reviews I make about the brand, but Besame is definitely one of my top favorite lipstick brands. As far as packaging, cases, color, texture, and fragrance goes, it is just such high quality. Add that to the vintage vibe and uniqueness of the whole Besame cosmetics line, and we have something really special to enhance our beauty and lives with.
