Lips as red as blood


Konnichiwa!

Lately my blog has become popular in Japan, which I think is amazing! I love Japan, but it makes me think... Lindsey - is it you?

I am feeling poorly, with an infection and fever, but it's only a cold, so it'll be over soon. I was lucky to escape colds all spring, so it's only fair that summer brings one. I hope you are all doing well though!


I rarely write about makeup even though I love makeup! I especially love lipstick, and mostly red lipstick. Well let me tell you something exciting - I think I've found the best red lipstick out there!

It's from Bésame Cosmetics, and the colour is 1920 Bésame Red. It is a blueish bright red that is a replica on a true colour from 1920. It's very pigmented but still feels creamy on the lips - I love the texture! I can't believe I've gone so long without this magnificent lipstick.

Another thing that I really love about this lipstick is that it leaves a lovely stain on the lips after wearing it. It makes me think that it would look lovely to tint the lips with.





For people in Sweden and probably the rest of Europe, it's unfortunately not possible to order cosmetics from Bésame's own page (really, needs to be fixed imo), but I managed to get the lipstick from Beauty Bay.

This is not a sponsored post, I just really like this lipstick and wanted to share that with you!


Do you have any favourite lipsticks? Any favourite red lipsticks? I'm always looking for different shades of red lipstick. I just love the Snow White look it gives.

Much love,

    1. Oh thank you beautiful Andini! I think it's quite a universal shade, I think it would look good on many skin tones. And yes, it's adorable in it's vintage-y golden bullet.

  4. Haha! I'm sure I account for some of your new traffic from Japan...but I'm sure it's not all me! ;) And I love this shade of lipstick on you! You are so gosh darn beautiful, Mona! Wow! I'm going to have to try this out too! I'm addicted to red lipstick and am always looking for new shades. My favorite right now is Lipsense's Blue Red shade.

    I hope you have a lovely weekend, Mona! :)

    1. Hahaha, it was just so funny to me. You move to Japan and suddenly I have lots of readers there.
      Oh thank you so much beautiful. Gosh, I'm blushing now. It's such a beautiful shade, the Bésame Red, but Bésame have many red lippies, so depending on what you like I'll think you're bound to find something.
      I'll check it out! I love blue reds, so I'm sure I'll love it.

      Thank you and you too!! <3
      Much love

  6. This shade is indeed gorgeous! Red lipsticks looks so good on you, I love it. The real Snow White :D I'd love to try Besame lipsticks, all their shades are pretty. Is the shipping expensive from Beauty Bay, and does it ship from the US? I'm so scared to order from there because of additional costs!

    1. It really is Julia! Oh thank you so much! :3 You're making me blush.
      All their shades are amazing!
      The shipping was free for me, and yes it does ship from the US. But I saw that Beauty Bay doesn't have the Bésame lipsticks anymore, but I think it's only temporarily sold out.
      Much love

    2. Oh that's annoying :( But actually I've got a friend going to New York this summer, I might ask her to get me one or two lipsticks. Hopefully once the brand gets more fame, in a few years, it will be sold in more countries! :D

    3. Very. I was ready to buy more :P
      That's great! I hope so too. I've emailed them saying I'd love to be able to buy their lipstick in Sweden, so I think the more costumers ask for it, the bigger is the likelihood that they will eventually sell in Europe too.

  10. I hope you're feeling much better now, Mona! I'm just like you. I've got a deep love for red lippies as well! The Besame lipstick looks amazing on you. The formula looks so vibrant and smooth. I'm eying the Red Velvet. Trying to save up so I can get it! Thank you always for being so kind.

    Lots of love,
    Zoey
