  • "Great creamy formula, lasts for hours and hours, but it does transfer easily. The color is a lovely red that is lighter than their other reds. " in 23 reviews
  • "A bright red with blue undertones that is guaranteed to flatter any skin tone! With a creamy texture, insanely opaque pigmentation, Besame Red is long lasting and hydrating. With one swipe to your lips, you're good for a hours and hours before you'll need to reapply. I can't get enough of the vintage packaging and perfect reds Besame produces, such a luxurious brand. If you're looking for a bright red that'll flatter your complexion, I highly recommend Besame Red 1920. " in 11 reviews
  • "Vintage colors, amazing packaging, and a way to not have to commit serious money for a lip color you're not sure of? Yes please! Besame Lipstick Matches are a great way to try out one of there vintage lip shades without having to make a long-term commitment if you simply aren't ready. The matchbook contains five applicators that are supposed to have enough lipstick on each for one application. Depending on how deep you want the color (which are semi-matte), I've found that you may be able to get two uses per applicator and still have lush, glamorous lips to show off. Along with all of those perks, the lipstick product itself is moisturizing and nourishing for lips." in 7 reviews

Both shades of the Besame lipstick that I purchased are absolutely beautiful! The pigmentation is perfect and full, the smell is lovely, the packaging is glamorous, and the wear-time is long lasting. They feel amazing on the lips and look good on as well. Would definitely recommend these!

I love these lipsticks! They last don't rub off easy. I have about 8 different colors slightly obsessed. The shape is a bit funky but it's classic. This shade is American Beauty.

I got the Agent Carter collection of this color aptly re-titled Sweet Dreams for the theme.
It goes on super smooth & is not drying. Has pretty good hold though does still come off a bit. Would definitely recommend!

This is my favorite bullet lipstick. It stays on all day with their double boot technique and it's so comfortable for a matte with no drying. I never experience feathering or bleeding. Their shades of red are gorgeous and I plan on purchasing more than the two I own already!!

This brand is darling and a joy to wear. I love the classic packaging and color selection. My favorite color to wear is Victory Red. The price is worth it and the color payoff is wonderful. I got mine as a Christmas gift and I will definitely be buying more to add to my collection. I love the historical accuracy of the brand.

I absolutely love this lipstick. It's smooth, it's creamy, easily turned into a matte stain with blotting and the gorgeous bullet packaging! I have died and gone to pin up girl heaven.

Presentation/packaging- Very pretty and retro gold and burgundy packaging however it is smaller than most lipsticks and the actual amount of lipstick seems to be a little bit less as well.

Smell/scent- Very pleasant, nothing in particular, just a light scent of lipstick.

Feel/texture- One of the creamiest true mattes I've tried. It goes on flawlessly, I couldn't be happier.

Time of use- 3 times

Effectiveness- There is no patches of colors and no exfoliation needed before hand (although that never hurts). It is highly pigmented and the colors are unique and true to the time of the 30's.

Price- I think the price is spot on and very fair for this being such an extremely high quality product.

Something unique- On the box of lipstick comes a sticker that tells you exactly what year the lipstick was replicated from and that it is an exact match.

Final thoughts- I will definitely be buying every color in this collection as this is now my favorite brand for lipsticks. I hope they create even more colors.

Smells amazing and glides on smoothly! I have the Portrait Pink color and it's just beautiful. The only thing you might find weird is the shape of the lipstick since it's different, but it's still amazing.

Is it worth it to try out the matchbox testers first or should I just bite the bullet and go for the full size? Has anyone used the matchbox tester and used it to make a decision whether or not to buy the full product?

These colors are amazing but I can't seem to get them to set right. They smear, bleed and leave traces all over the place. Any recommendations for keeping the color on my lips and not on everything else in the house?
