Besame American Beauty 1945 Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a "cool berry red." It's a subdued, medium-dark red with cool, raspberry undertones and a satin finish. It had very nearly opaque coverage (you can just barely see my lip freckle peeking through) that applied evenly and smoothly. The color lasted for six and a half hours and was lightly hydrating over time. Clinique Cherry Pop (P, $18.00) is lighter. MAC Stunner (LE, $16.00) is warmer.
