Ultra Slick Lipsticks ($32) that were marked new. That's sometimes a ruse, but I'm a total sucker for Edward Bess lipsticks, so I ordered Blushed Orchid and Desert Escape.
Ultra Slick Lipstick is described as seductive, a way to
accent the curves of your lips with irresistible, radiant color. The
creamy, long-wearing formula delivers superior hydration (really, it's
not "just a claim"). Ultra Slick smoothes and shapes the lips with an
exclusive treatment for a sensual pout. I like the way it feels on my
lips, and it's as long-lasting as any "long-lasting" lipsticks I like
(meaning they feel good - not just last).
I'm happy with both shades. Blushed Orchid is shown at left above, and Desert Escape at right. I took my swatch photos in full, morning sun in the same order. Blushed Orchid is shown at the top of my arm, with Desert Escape below. The two shades could not be more different.
Long ago, I declared myself an Edward Bess groupie. You too can become an Edward Bess groupie - even if you don't have a
local source. Edward Bess makeup and skin care is available at Sephora (thank God).
