I am an avid, longtime fan of Besame cosmetics and their lipsticks in particular. These lipsticks are absolutely beautiful to wear and to look at. They are wonderfully pigmented, a great semi-matte finish in a comfortable consistency which stays put quite well. Besame offers a wide variety of colors - especially REDS - to the extent that just about everyone can find a signature color. Mine is Besame Red. If all that were not enough, their vintage style packaging is second to none. In short, they are THE BEST lipsticks I have ever worn.
