Summer is upon us and now’s the time to bring out our tan appropriate makeup. As you prepare for your holiday, where you’ll no doubt be sunning yourself, you’ll need makeup to go with the tan. Shimmery bronzer, neon talons and of course, lipstick to match! I have just the thing - Besame Cosmetics lipstick in Coral*, £22. I came across this brand from Vintage Brighton managed by the lovely Jo-ann Fortune.
Besame Lipstick in Coral is an orange coral with the right amount of shimmer to complement a sun kissed tan. Firstly, let’s take a minute to appreciate the beautiful, luxurious and regal packaging. Taking this out of my bag, I feel like a queen of some description! The luxurious red velvet pouch and the gold packaging with intricate design scream vintage style.
The lipstick in the bullet is an unusual shape to normal lipstick, square shaped. This actually makes it easier to apply from the bullet. Also, it smells amazing. Think MAC lipsticks. The formula is moisturising without being glossy or sticky. I’d say it has a semi-matte finish. It has such a light texture, that I forgot I had anything on my lips!
The pigmentation on the lipstick is really impressive; with one swipe the colour is opaque. On re-application, there are no patches or uneven application. Exactly what you need when you’re out and about so you can re-apply whenever you need to!
Just because I’m dreaming of wearing this when I’m sunning myself next to a pool, doesn’t mean it’s only good for tanned gals! I think it’s a great shade for any skin tone as it’s warm enough to add colour to your complexion without looking too orange.
If you’re looking to treat yourself, give Besame lipsticks a whirl!
