Edward Bess Ultra Slick Lipstick in Secret Desire – swatch & review

Edward Bess is a name that’s being thrown around quite heavily in beauty world. His Quads are a best-seller and an absolute favorite of mine. So it’s no surprise that I wanted to continue to further discover the Edward Bess brand. I picked up an Ultra Slick Lipstick in the Shade Secret Desire and it was love at first swipe.

edward-bess-secret-desire-1The Ultra Slick Lipstick is a “creamy, ultra-moisturzing formula that drenches your pout with intense hydration for visibly softer, smoother lips.” It is available in a selection of 14 shades.


The word Slick is a perfect description of how the lipstick applies, similar to YSL Rouge Volupte line though not quite as slick. It’s a very silky formula that feels incredibly comfortable and moisturizing on the lips. The Ultra Slick lipstick has light to medium coverage with a glossy finish. For a glossy-finish lipstick it has a great wear time. I found Secret Desire to layer well to provide more intensity, while never feeling heavy. There is a very detectable scent referred to as “fresh figs”. While I’m not to keen on fragranced lipstick, I wasnt really offended to this one. The scent is actually quite nice though I do suggest a sniff test first.


Seceret Desire is a creamy peach-pink nude shade. One swipe delivers light to medium coverage while it can be layered for an opaque finish. Secret Desire is nude perfection and pairs beautifully with many looks. The formula is exquisite and if you’re a fan of glossy lipsticks, this formula is certainly one to try!

    Ahh Secret Desire is SO pretty on you! I have Island Blossom but I think the finish is less glossy!

    Oh this is so pretty on you and the texture seems quite nice. Sad that we don’t have EB in stores where I live.

  3. This looks like “My lips but better” on you. Very pretty! I don’t like lipsticks with a particular scent, and since I can’t sniff it, I probably won’t be so adventurous to try it then. LOL!

    Beautiful! I feel like there’s quite a bit of pink in this, for a nude — which (if you ask me) is always a good thing, of course! 😉

  6. OMG perfection. Edward Bess should be hiring you to model this shade. LOVE it.

  7. Larie says:

    That is the perfect nude for you! I really like it. I’m not a fan of fig-scented lip products, though…just too sweet for me!

  8. Oh it’s PREFECT on you Taylor! LOVELY!! And your lips look so smooth too! I’ve been meaning to try one of his lipsticks and you’ve convinced me!

  9. Teri says:

    This shade is another very ‘you’ shade, love it! You rock warm peachy shades so well, and you look like a flawless beauty here!

  10. I knew it would look great on you. I was right 🙂

  11. Tiffany says:

    Ooo, I really love this shade on you! It looks like a great everyday lipstick. I have one EB lipstick and although I think it smells good at first, it gives me a massive headache after a few minutes 😦 I tend to be pretty sensitive to scents though. Oh well!

  12. I really need to try some EB already. I’ve seen some of the Quad Royales and they look so pretty. As does this lipstick. It looks great on you, too!

  13. miss belle says:

    this looks so, so pretty! love the peachy pink lipsticks!

  14. Latoya says:

    This is the absolute PERFECT shade for you Taylor!!! I am desperate to buy a shade like this that enhances my lips in a natural way. Great pick!

    Lipstick is beautiful, but what blush are you wearing. Gorgeous
