This is the third Besame lipstick I bought. I originally wasn’t planning on getting another one right now but when I saw this was based on Marilyn Monroe’s favorite color I couldn’t resist. (I’ve been a big Marilyn fan for years.)
The packaging is pretty as all Bésame lipsticks are.
The color is a bright, warm toned red. After reading reviews and looking at swatches I was a little concerned it would look too orange on me. After trying it I saw happily that It didn’t.
It feels light on the lips and wears well without feathering. The texture seems a bit creamier than some of the other Bésame colors but it doesn’t feel greasy or like it will smear a lot.
I am very pleased with the color and how it looks on me, and happy that I bought it.
