You know how you can be an admirer of something and not own it? That was me with Besame Cosmetics When I heard they provided makeup for the ABC show Agent Carter, I was over the moon! I had intended to cosplay Peggy Carter, and I needed to know what her signature color was. A few days after it was made public, I made my first purchase.
I wore the lipstick right after receiving it, and I fell in love. The packaging, the shape of the tube, all of it made me very happy, and feel absolutely glamorous. Red Velvet is a gorgeous color reminiscent of the mid 40's, and I was very happy at how it looks with my complexion.
It’s a very smooth application process. I use the pointed edge of the lipstick to line my lips, and then fill it all out. I then blot with a tissue, and go about my way!
It keeps my lips very hydrated, and the only time I experienced dryness, is when it was an exceptionally windy day. I combated that by wiping some lipstick away, and re-applying.
It should be known, this lipstick will get on everything. There are little tips and tricks to get your lipstick to not end up being your next way of marking your territory, but I didn't feel like utilizing them. Though, I will say, it makes an amazing kiss mark, and lasts through out the day of eating and being very animated.
I hope to have photos of my Peggy Carter cosplay up fairly soon, so you all can see it in action!
Thank you all for reading!
