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.
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!
