Edward Bess First Kiss Deep Shine Lipgloss
Edward Bess First Kiss Deep Shine Lipgloss

Edward Bess First Kiss Deep Shine Lipgloss ($30.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright pink.” It’s a cool-toned, blue-based, cotton candy pink with a creamy, glossy finish. MAC Style Packed is darker. MAC Silly is slightly darker. MAC Pink Nouveau is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

The formula is supposed to have “extraordinary shine” with a “kiss of brilliant color” that’s “hydrating.” The shade range “[ranges] from barely there to bold and dramatic.” First Kiss had semi-opaque color coverage, and I think it might have been nearly opaque if it applied more evenly. It had a tendency to settle a bit into lip lines and had a translucency that gave it somewhat splotchy coloring. The consistency is medium-thick and very tacky. It feels a bit gummy and gluey; it’s not as thick as MAC Lipglass, but it’s as sticky, if not slightly stickier. It has a sweet fig scent that might be cloying for some (it was noticeable even when I wore it, and I usually don’t notice scents in lip products once applied). It lasted four and a half hours, which is slightly better than average. It was neither drying nor hydrating while I wore it. This was the first product by Edward Bess that disappointed me; this didn’t feel like a high-end or luxury lipgloss at all.

  1. thats such a lovely color im debating getting it even with the not so great review!

  2. I like how it looks from afar, but the close-up is rather disappointing :-(

  3. Mir

    from far, it looks really nice.. too bad about the consistency.
    Also close up you can kind of see it starting to pool on the edge of your lips, how odd!

  4. AJP

    Do you remember what you’re wearing on your cheeks?

    it only looks cute from afar…

  6. Such a pretty shade of pink…shame about the consistency, it looks as though it doesn’t sit well on the lips.

    That’s a shame it didn’t settle well or get fully pigmented! It’s SO PRETTY in the tube!
