Edward Bess Lipstick in Endless Dream

blogger reviews, lipstick, edward bess, makeupwithtea, beauty,


Around my birthday this year, I decided to treat myself to a lipstick. Lipsticks are usually the one makeup item that I cave into. Prior to this, I never really heard much about Edward Bess, but after seeing their wearable color choices and seeing their good reviews on MUA, I decided to give this one a shot. This is my review on Endless Dream. 

Color: (4/5)
blogger reviews, lipstick, edward bess, makeupwithtea, beauty, Endless Dream is a fuschia with many faces. Under natural sunlight, it can appear quite dark - with hints of purple peeking through. In artificial lighting, it appears as a gentler warmer magenta color. Very interesting! I really prefer the warmer color as I feel like it suits my skin color better. I'm not really sure how to rate the color. It's definitely the color that I wanted, but I don't really like that it seems to look very different under different lighting. I understand that it's supposed to look different in different lightings, but I just feel like the color difference is quite noticeable. Not sure how I feel about this. Anyway, the color comes out semi-opaque, with full coverage in two to three swipes. Not bad.

blogger reviews, lipstick, edward bess, makeupwithtea, beauty, Formula: (4/5)
The formula is fairly moisturizing and feels like a standard moisturized lipstick. It isn't the most moisturizing, but it isn't drying either. It falls somewhere in between. With lip balm, it wears very comfortably and doesn't dry my lips out. Hooray for that!

Longevity: (5/5)
So far, I've been able to use this for about four hours without needing to reapply. It does fade quite nicely and evenly. When eating and drinking, it fades evenly into a nice tint. I'm not really sure about going 6 + hours with this one - as I usually never last that long with lipstick. 

Overall: (4.3)
Overall I think this is a pretty good lipstick. Is it amazing? I mean, it didn't really excite me or make me want to more of it's kind. It's sort of like... your average joe lipstick. Which for the price point, really kinda sucks. At about $32.00, I feel like I personally wouldn't repurchase this. I'd probably save up that money for a YSL or a Chanel Lippie. But nevertheless, it's a great and unique color. It just didn't dazzle me enough. 

Do you have this lipstick?
If so, how do you like it?

  3. a very lovely colour, I agree with Kallie, it does look a lot brighter on your lips than in the tube! $32 is a whooping price to ask for, I'm finding more and more cheaper lipsticks to be up to par in hydration, pigmentation and lasting qualities as the more expensive lipsticks.

  12. True. I feel like the price is a little too much... But I'm not saying it's a bad lipstick. I just feel like I shouldn't be paying such a high amount for it. And yeah there are definitely a lot of cheaper alternatives.
