Product:
The formula is what I call super matte but not drying. I can slightly tug on the lips, but it doesn't feel drying to me and feel somewhat cushioned on the lips as well. The finish does dry down to more of a matte finish through the day but for the first hour or so it has a very subtle dewiness to the lips.

I find that using any lip brush is my preferred method of applying this just because you need that clean line with deep reds.

I previously did a review of Cherry Red 1935 here >
I previously did a review of Noir Red 1930 & Portrait Pink 1963 here >

Colour:
Noir Red 1930 is a deep merlot red with a matte finish.
Portrait Pink 1963 is a light baby pink with a matte finish.

Love's First Kiss 1937 is a cool pink with a matte finish.
Red Velvet 1930 is a warm red with a matte finish.
Merlot 1963 is a is a cool deep red with a matte finish.

Wear: Close to 6 hours of wear before slight fading occurs.

Packaging: 
Gold round bullet tube with the Bésame flowers in red and is a touch shorter but 1cm than most lipstick bullets on the market giving it that vintage size feel. The closure also has a nice and tight snap.

The bullet is also cut into a V shape are the tip for a better application, or so they claim. ;)

The Love's First Kiss 1937 has an updated bullet art that used the Snow White flowers from the movie which I thought was a nice touch.

Portrait Pink 1963 is way lighter and warmer compared to Love's First Kiss 1937.
Red Velvet 1930 is lighter and slightly warmer compared to Cherry Red 1935.
Merlot 1963 is lighter and warmer compared to Noir Red.

Verdict
So you may not need 4 shades of red, but Besame has a history of shades of red for every time period but every ever skin tone should also find a match in their range. I like to see more shades of pink in the future.
