I made my first Besame cosmetics purchase at Unique LA. Gosh–I think it has been a few years ago.
After that first time, I was hooked.
The packaging. The colors and range of products. And my, they last and last. What seems like a splurge ends up being just good economy in the long run. Plus, the company has a darling founder and visionary, in Gabriela Hernandez. It is all just good stuff.
Looks like there is a new red in town, folks. Not sure if I am so bold as to try it–but I just might. I think the gloss might be nice.
Here are a few of my personal favorites from Besame, if you would like to dip your feet in their plentiful pool:
Crimson Cream Rouge
This is my go-to blush and lip stain. It lasts all day and really has a nice vintage look.
(here is an adorable video of Gabriela Hernandez giving a tutorial on its application)
Brightening Violet Powder
This is just the most heavenly stuff. It works very nicely over concealer or cream, under a finishing powder. It smells nice, too! It is so delicate and feminine. It’s a delight to use!
Besame goodies are always impeccably wrapped. Even if you are gifting someone else, you truly feel like you had a lovely, old-fashioned shopping experience. With bon-bons , hat boxes and many other lovely parcels to carry. It is a real feel-good purchase.
At shows, there have always been generous gifts with purchase. And if you order online, they do have free shipping on 2+ items. Also, get on their mailing list–they do provide special deals from time to time.
Gee. I just love this stuff.
