Wild Passion (No. 19) is one of the new colors in Edward Bess' revamped range of Deep Shine lip glosses. The shade is escribed as "berry mauve" and I can't argue. That's exactly right. Wild Passion is the perfect companion for the new Edward Bess lipstick in Night Jasmine (especially since the lipstick is somewhat on the dry side). The gloss offers a shiny finish with no shimmer and has a low-to-moderate stickiness and the usual Edward Bess fruity fragrance.
Wild Passion works well on its own (this shade is what passes as a nice nude in my world) or over Edward Bess Nude lip liner. As I said, it's also great over lipstick: not just Night Jasmine but also Demi Buff. Pigment intensity is similar to other Bess glosses, but I find that it doesn't apply as smooth. I have to scoop quite a bit of product out of the tube and preferably use a brush for the even coverage I prefer.
The lip gloss, like everything else in the current line, is made in Taiwan.
Bottom Line: nice enough, but I'm worried.
Edward Bess lip glosses ($30) are available from Bergdorf Goodman, select Neiman Marcus locations, Sephora (online and in the NYC Union Square store), as well as from edwardbess.com.
