Besame

Colour Pop Besame Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick ($6.50 for 0.11 oz.) is a deep red with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage in a single layer–just shy of full coverage–that applied evenly and fluidly over my lips without streaking or gathering in my lip lines. The liquid lipstick had a lightweight, spreadable texture that was thin but not watery, though it dried down to a soft matte finish. The color was still going strong after six hours of wear, and it felt neither drying nor hydrating at that point.

Edited to add: For additional clarity, this is a ColourPop product made in collaboration with Becky G, named “Besame,” and has no relation to Besame Cosmetics.

Formula Overview

$6.50/0.11 oz. - $59.09 Per Ounce

It is a long-wearing, pigmented lipstick that starts off glossy and dries down quickly to that super flat matte finish. They have minimal transfer with some of the lighter shades having almost none for the first few hours of wear, but any time you’ve had a meal, they lose that transfer-resistant quality to a noticeable degree. They tend to wear anywhere from six to ten hours with darker shades maintaining better color coverage and wear over a longer period of time.

Some shades get a little drying about two-thirds to three-fourths through the wear, while a few shades have been fairly non-drying even many hours into wear. They fade away evenly with most color loss occurring from the center of the lips if eating a more oil-based meal but the majority of color survives a meal.

Reapplication has been hit or miss and tends to depend on how well it wore away and how easily the shade applies normally, but reapplication tends to emphasize the lip’s natural texture significantly compared to initial application and gives lips a very wrinkled, dried-up look. I’ve layered gloss on top of some shades with moderate success, though it will obviously lose the matte finish and will transfer and I’ll get tiny flakes where the matte lip color has lifted by mixing with gloss but has been pretty minimal. The formula had no discernible taste or scent.

I’m so inspired by the entire look you did above in the whole face photo! Very festive and fun!

As for Besame, it is a stunner! I do love it, but I’m fairly sated with beautiful reds over here. New favorite? MAC Slay Ride!

Besame is labeled as an Ultra Matte in Colourpop’s website, not an Ultra Satin. That would explain it being more matte than the typical Ultra Satin from CP.

Very nice. Fortunately I’m safe from temptation in that it’s an ultra-matte and I already have 8217 reds, so … I’ll just look. 🙂
