Edward Bess Forbidden Flower Ultra Slick Lipstick
Edward Bess Forbidden Flower Ultra Slick Lipstick

Edward Bess Forbidden Flower Ultra Slick Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “beige coral.” It’s a warm-toned, light peach with a hint of pink and a creamy, shiny finish. Chanel Sentiment is more frosted. MAC Sweet & Sour is lighter. MAC Style Surge is darker, warmer. MAC Razzledazzler is pinker. Burberry Pink Apricot is more matte, slightly darker. Burberry Devon Sunset is slightly darker, pinker. See comparison swatches.

Forbidden Flower had full color coverage with little effort or product needed. The consistency is slick, creamy, and not too thick or too thin. With a lighter shade like this, though, the creaminess does lead to “lines” showing up, which make the color look somewhat uneven, when you press your lips together. Luckily, it’s not too noticeable from afar. It lasted four hours well, and it was nicely hydrating during that time. The formula has a sweet fig scent to it, but I didn’t notice it once applied.

  1. I definitely wouldn’t call this coral, but I guess it all depends on who’s wearing it :-) Maybe on paler lips this would look coral.

  2. That color looks lovely on you!

    So pretty on you Christine, I am obsessed with orange coral lipsticks. I found mac razzledazzler lipsticks in orlando at a cco this weekend and now I own all the lipsticks from all about orange, except for neon orange.

  5. Looks lovely on you! How does it compare to MAC’s In a Heartbeat (l/s from the Divine Desire Quite Coral set)? That’s the one l/s I’ve been wanting to find forever, but ebay prices for the set are completely outrageous!

  6. I’m so curious to try out more products from EB, especially the lipsticks, but they’re all so warm-toned for me! I like the couple of things I’ve gotten, so I hope there’s an upcoming collection for us cooler-toned lasses.

      Try the Night Romance lipstick, it’s a sophisticated berry color that I do not find at all warm.

  7. you look beautiful, i literally said “wow” out loud lol :)

  8. I think I need this! It’s so hard to find any kind of peach lipcolor that isn’t shimmery or frosty, not to mention not too pale/too orange, and scented in a good way.

  9. This looks like a really cute, neutral peach!

    I find the packaging very cheap looking. Just based on that I wouldn’t purchase this brand of lipstick.

  11. Have this and love it. I think it works really well regardless of skin temperature.

  12. It looks very weird (and kinda yellow!!) in the tube, but it looks really pretty on the lips.
