Review for: Red Velvet
Let's be fair: I'm a comic book nerd who loves vintage fashion: of course I was going to buy the lipstick from Agent Carter. This was my first time trying the brand, and I did enjoy it. The shape of the bullet can be somewhat awkward, especially if you're trying to follow their instructions for application, but it is distinctive. The lipstick is highly pigmented and moisturizing, and lasted for about five hours. There is some transfer, but it is a good satin or demi-matte red, and a must have for nerd girls.

The Red Velvet lipstick was my first Besame Cosmetics product. It is a matte long-lasting lipsticks. I recommend this shade if you want to go for a 1946/1950's vibe.

Review for: Carmine
I've heard about Besame lipsticks (and products in general) for a while now and always wanted to try but wasn't too sure if I wanted to spend so much on a lipstick I've never tried. One day while scrolling through Zulily, I noticed they had this brand on their flash site at a discounted price. Being since I've heard great things about them and wanted to try them for a while I went ahead and bought a few of their products, this being one of them.
Now I've used this lipstick for a month now and I can honestly say that I wish I would have purchased from them sooner! This lipstick is so pigmented, it smells like sweet vanilla, and lasts for a good amount of time. The same of these lipsticks is unique, it almost reminds me of a pyramid. The great part about the shape is that you can really sculpt out your upper lip.

Overall do I recommend this lipstick, you bet ya!

Review for: Red Velvet
I have yet to see a person who wears this lipstick that DOESN'T look good in it. Gloria Hernandez has found the universal shade of red that looks good on EVERYBODY! I love how it goes on; it's very smooth and creamy, and it stays put just about all day long if I blot it before I leave the house. This shade was made famous by Hayley Atwell, who wore it on the show Agent Carter. I'm glad she shared that that was what lipstick she was wearing; it deserves all the praise it gets!

I have a few of the lipsticks, but the Besame Red is by far my favorite bold lip color. Its a very bright classic red. The staying power is really good and just the overall story and packaging is very appealing! I love this company and their products!

Review for: Red Velvet
I didn't discover Besame cosmetics until last year, I now own everything! Their lipsticks are divine. I can't express how every single shade of their red lipsticks are perfect...they just are. Red Velvet was my first. For starters their lipsticks are shaped in a way for you to line your lips first, then fill in. Secondly, the formula is perfection. Creamy and luxurious, not drying in the least. Yes, you will have to reapply after eating, but with any real lipstick you have to do that anyhow. The bullet is substantial and not cheaply made and don't be surprised if you find yourself needing the entire line.

How does this compare to other high end lipsticks? And is there a strong crayon scent?

I have brown hair and it's a pixie cut. I also have really pale skin with a more yellow undertone. I really love the look of red lipstick on other people, but I've always been afraid to try it myself. Would it look good with my description?
