Ever since I heard Besame had opened a little boutique near me, I was eager to go and visit. I love Besame Cosmetics and while I’ve been able to see the little displays some vintage shops and vendors set up, I wanted to see the whole line together and ensure nothing would be sold out. I was in for a real treat.
What I love about Besame Cosmetics is they are kind to your face, with natural ingredients you can actually recognize, yet without skimping on the beautiful pigments, packaging and product quality that hearken back to a more glamorous age.
I grabbed Lily, partner in crime, and we went by the little boutique in Glendale. We had the shop all to ourselves and Gabriela Hernandez herself, the founder of Besame, showed us all of the products, and more, including some sneak peeks I’m happy to share with you.
One of the lovely gift options coming up is the adorable signature Besame makeup case to store all of your travel makeup essentials.
The next is a gift set created in conjunction with Kenley Collins of Project Runway fame, including a lovely scarf and
lipstick inspired by Kenley herself. The lipstick is highly pigmented, even more concentrated and cooler than Besame Red, so if you like richly-colored lipstick, this one may be the one for you. But snap up the gift set while you have the chance, as when the limited-edition set with scarf is gone, it is gone.
The next item which I am anxious to get my hands on is the cake mascara and liner, which will come with both a mascara wand and a sable brush for the liner. This will come out in either February or March 2013.
While I couldn’t purchase the new gift options just yet, I was able to purchase the new Brightening Violet Powder, which I’m looking forward to experimenting with. And when you visit the store, you get to select a gift with purchase – of the three options, I chose a lovely red Lip Glaze.
I will be back at Besame very soon to see the new gorgeous options to make me feel beautiful.
