A Find: Besame Cosmetics
October 11, 2005
In the age of cheek color, minimalist packaging and boho style, Besame Cosmetics is bringing back rouge, ornate vanity cases and old Hollywood Glamour. I love retro everything, so I was immediately impressed when my eyes fell on the vintage-era compact. Frankly, I’d be content just pulling it out of my bag on occasion while out on the town. In bright can’t-miss gold with elaborate scrolling, it looks that sophisticated. But I knew what was inside would be good too. The case comes in three color palettes (light, medium and dark) and includes appropriate shades of powder, concealer and rouge. It also includes Shimmer Beige, Socialite Brown and Black Pearl eye shadows. Each product is also sold separately in a suite of shades that were researched to be authentic recreations of colors used in times gone by. The company also offers instructionals on how to duplicate classic looks from the 20s through the 50s. Besame is the bee’s knees! Find Besame Cosmetics at besamecosmetics.com.
