Besame Cosmetics is inspired by the makeup of yesteryear, and they strive to revive bygone eras by creating their own versions of the classics. Their crimson cream rouge is reminiscent of 1938, and their Chocolate Kiss lipstick recalls the shades of 1970. This fun company’s products are all vegetarian and cruelty-free! In fact, most of their products are vegan, with the exception of their lipsticks. The lipsticks contain beeswax from “very happy bees.” We think you’ll be happy, too, when you try these fabulous offerings!
You’ll love their website, www.besamecosmetics.com. So many wonderful items to choose from! The Black Cake Mascara ($20.00), was inspired by a product from the 1920s. It’s cruelty-free, paraben-free, gluten-free, mineral-oil free, vegan, and sustainably made in California. This lavish product comes in a recyclable metal tin, complete with its own brush. You can use it as a mascara, an eyebrow fill, or an eyeliner. Great for sensitive eyes!
If you’re a Lucille Ball fan, you’ll swoon over Besame’s I Love Lucy collection. It includes the Lucy’s Face Powder Compact ($35.00), Lucy’s Love That Redhead and What a Peach lipsticks ($24.00 apiece), and the Club Babalu Shadow Palette ($35.00). These products all recall the glamor of the Lucy era. Each one is rated five stars by a host of satisfied customers! We just love the shadow palette, which features eight different shades, including Tropicana Taupe, Ricardo Rose, and Babablue. What fun!
Besame’s rouge selection features three shades, each inspired by the year 1938, and are made to use on both cheeks and lips! Each one costs $20.00 and comes in a recyclable tin bearing the image of a gorgeous flower. We love them all, but feel especially inspired by the Poppy Cream Rouge. Described on the site as a “warm-toned pink shade with a hint of coral”, this offering will give your lips a warm, kissable hue! It’s easy to blend, and stays on all day! Best of all, it’s vegan!
We could go on all day about this wonderful company, but you’ll just have to order some of their products and see for yourself. If you spend at least $55.00, shipping is free! If you really love Besame’s line, you can join their loyalty club. You’ll earn points every time you shop, and can redeem them for discounts. You earn extra points for referring a friend to the website, by posting a review, or by following the company on Facebook and/or Instagram. And….fifty extra points on your birthday! How cool is that?
If you love vintage makeup, Besame is your jam! Just remember to check those labels if you’re vegan. But everything is vegetarian and cruelty-free. Enjoy!
