In the past year, I have been drawn to Besame as a brand, as it really appeals to my personal aesthetic and style. If you’re not already familar, Besame is built on recreating vintage colors that existed in previous decades. I have three products to share today; two blushes and one lip gloss.
I purchased one powder blush and one cream blush that is multitasks as a lip product. The powder blush is called Raspberry, and it is a 1930 reproduction. Housed in a vintage style compact, the top twists off and the pan is adorned with a stunning floral design and the brand name. The cream blush is in a smaller pot in the shade Apricot, a 1938 reproduction.
I have worn both of these blushes several times and prefer the cream; however, I am going through a cream products phase at the moment, and I could be going through a bright moment due to spring being here. That said, Apricot is lovely, as it blends well and provides a naturally bright blush. It’s also very long lasting.
Raspberry is very pigmented; be careful with this one on the skin! It’s a dusty pink mauve and despite all of the blush I have, unique to my stash. I have accidentally gone overboard a few times with this one and had to spend time blending it out.
I definitely recommend both of these stunning products if you’re in the market for a new blush.
Caramel is a Sweetheart Glaze lip gloss and does not have a particular date associated with it. I prefer lip gloss, and this is a lovely nude shade. It’s extremely comfortable, not sticky, and gives just enough color. There is a slight sweet scent, but it’s not overpowering; I barely notice it.
I’m very pleased with my Besame choices and it’s hard to resist not purchasing everything my heart desires from this brand! In case you missed it, I did write about their Victory Red lipstick awhile back, which has earned a place of honor in that it is currently the only red lip color I own at the moment. 🙂
