Bess. Edward Bess. No? Haven’t heard of him? Me neither, until a sample from his lovely lip line showed up at the office. Looked like a good color for me, so I gave it a try and voilá, lip love at first sight. Number one in my heart is the Deep Shine Lip Gloss ($26 online or at Bergdorf Goodman). Mine’s in Desert Glow, on the nude end of the spectrum, and aside from adding the perfect natural shine, its fragrance (a hint of wild fig) is alluring. I also tried the Ultra Slick Lipstick—great color, smooth texture, fig fragrance. Love it.
Also, he’s cute.
