Besame Cosmetics Lipsticks

Besame Cosmetics is an absolutely stunning brand that mimics makeup of the past both in style and colour. Each lipstick shade represents a shade that was popular during the year it was named after (e.g. 1930 Noir Red, etc.) What I love about these lipsticks is that they’re just a solid, trustworthy lipstick. You know that the colour you purchase is going to show up on your face exactly as the tube itself looks. I particularly like the flat, square tip for application. You can use the pointed ends to line it, and the flat top to fill the lips in consistently.

As you can see from this pic, I definitely need a mani, and my Besame lipsticks are definitely well loved! This particular shade is Carmine, one of my go-to’s.

Another favourite is 1930 Noir Red. It’s a lush, plum red that I particularly enjoy for winter.

I fell in love with these lipsticks a little while after I’d stopped working as an actor/tour guide at The Tunnels of Moose Jaw. The first summer that I worked there I had absolutely loved dressing up and dolling up as a flapper and travelling time while leading tours for the day. When I saw Besame lipsticks featured in a video on Facebook, I was instantly hit with this nostalgic pang both for the retro-styled makeup and for the lipsticks that reminded me of my flapper job. If my bank account was limitless, I’d own every single one of them to be honest!
