I already told you guys that I recently got a mini lipstick set from Besame cosmetics and today I am going to talk about the last shade from the bundle, which is “1970 Chocolate Kiss”. Let’s see whether this is a buy or bye.
$22 AUD for 3.5g
A lipstick with a satin, matte finish that delivers full coverage in one coat. Bésame Cosmetics’ Classic Color Lipsticks feature retro-inspired, smooth lip colors that provide a budge-proof finish that stays put, while the angled design offers precise application. Each lasting color is inspired by the shades worn by coveted Hollywood starlets of the ‘20s, ‘30s, ‘40s, and ‘50s, imparting an iconic, satin meets matte lip look. The formula is packed with macadamia oil, vitamin C, chamomile, and aloe to leave lips feeling soft and hydrated.

My Experience with Besame Cosmetics 1970 Chocolate Kiss Lipstick:
Packaging: This lipstick comes packaged in a red and gold cardboard box with all the product and shade details. The lipstick itself comes housed in a gorgeous golden bullet with the brand’s signature chrysanthemum flowers design in red and the shade name is also present at the bottom of the bullet. Since I got the mini lipstick, I didn’t get the outer box and also, the lipstick came with a push up button to push the lipstick forward. The packaging is gorgeous and unique. Each of these lipsticks is inspired from a particular decade of the Hollywood world, and the year details are also put on the lippie. Usually, lipstick bullets have a single flat end, but this one is chiseled with 2 flat ends, which make it easy to line and fill your lips. It also has a beautiful vanilla fragrance just like MAC lipsticks. Overall, this lipstick shouts “Luxury” and “Vintage”.
Shade: The shade “Chocolate Kiss” is a neutral milk chcocolate brown with an orange undertone. This is a true replica of a color from 1970. Nude shades were all the rage as the 1970s began, because the focus was on tan skin and barely they do makeup. Chocolate Kiss is the perfect “kiss” of color for a softer look. This is a universally flattering shade which will look like a beautiful neutral shade on medium to deep skintones.
Formula: The formula of these lipsticks is “Divine”. It’s not as extra creamy or slick as some ranges; it has the right amount of creaminess like a classic lippie. It applies smoothly onto the lips and provides a full pigment with a single stroke. These doesn’t have a matte finish, as there were no matte formulas in the older days; they have a beautiful satin finish. All the lipsticks are enriched with Vitamin E, C, and A, as well as aloe and green tea, which makes the lipstick all the more smooth and good. There is no major feathering, flaking or smearing; this felt light and easy on the lips. Since this is a dark shade, a lip liner is necessary to avoid bleeding around the lips.
Longevity: This product also had impressive wear time; it lasted for almost 6 hours just like most of the traditional lipsticks. The lipstick faded evenly, instead of from the middle. It is easy to reapply and also leaves a beautiful stain behind at the end of the day.
This is a beautiful lipstick and a must-have for neutral shades lovers. It has amazing quality and gorgeous packaging which won my heart altogether.
