I’ve always loved the Golden Era. I love everything about the 1950’s and wish I grew up in this era. If I had a time machine, I would go back to this time!
At least with Besame Lipsticks, they help me to imagine what cosmetics were popular during this time. I received samples of Besame Lipsticks and I’d never tried out or heard of their products until now. I wish I had known sooner! These luxurious cosmetics are inspired by the Golden Age of Cinema. What is very clever is that each lipstick is inspired by a particular decade. Their reds are the exact shades used by favourite Hollywood starlets. I absolutely adore the design of the packaging, its very classical and vintage-inspired.
Interesting facts: Besame Lipsticks are made by hand in Los Angeles! Each lipstick contains Squalene, Vitamin C and Aloe.
A bold and brazen warm red. This definitely has to be my favourite shade! This colour was Marilyn Monroe’s favourite. I’m a big fan of Marilyn Monroe, so I’m wearing this colour constantly.

The Besame lipsticks I tried glide on effortlessly and are of a vibrant pigmentation. They provide a a semi-matte, smooth lavish finish. I did try these lipstick colours on my lips, but it was rather difficult to really notice the colour difference between these lipsticks as they are very similar. But, I swatched them and it was much easier to see the colour difference. I’ve provided image below 🙂
I must purchase some of these lipsticks, as they’ve left a splendid impression on me!
I have some very exciting posts ahead, so keep in touch!
