Monday, 29 August 2011Inspired by original decorative cases used during the post-war 1940's when metal was in big demand, this bullet shaped lipstick was the first product that the founder of Besame Gabriela Hernandez created.
It is the most delectable lipstick, infused with a semi-matte finish and an alluring high pigment, making it great for a 1 coat full strength look and a blotted stain for a subtle look.
It’s the high natural pigment content that makes this lipstick smooth and incredibly long-lasting, not to mention its feather-proof finish. Each lipstick is set in a gold plated bullet shaped case, with a protective velvet pouch for storage. They are enriched with vitamins A, E and C, aloe and green tea which help protect your lips from drying out, without losing its long-lasting effect. The collection of vintage reproduction colours are the exact shades used by your favourite Hollywood starlets.
The colours from this collection, stocked by Deadly is the Female are....
Besame Red is Beseme's signature colour. It is a true red with a cool/blue tone. It is bright and vibrant and brilliant for those with a cool complexion.
Carmine is an orange/red colour which changes depending on skin tone. It is a semi-matte, vibrant shade which is a more neutral orange and isn't too yellow. At last - a red-orange lipstick that is becoming on warm and olive skin tones! This is our favourite for this season
Cherry Red is a deep, rich, dark red shade. It can also be worn as a stain which gives a beautiful rose colour. This Besame lipstick is a cool, deep, ripe cherry colour which is very flattering to medium and olive skin tones and incredibly pale skin.
Debutante Pink is a soft pink with cool tones which offers the perfect alternative to the classic vintage reds. It has a slight pearl tone to it and is great to use when going for a dramatic eye look. As the saying goes, you only draw attention to either your eyes or your lips, not both....unless you are a drag queen!
Dusty Rose is a natural rose shade which is great for everyday use. Best on lighter to medium skin tones.
Portrait Pink is a warm baby pink. It is very pale pink which makes it good on light skin tones. With a no shimmer, opaque finish and a soft pastel shade, it is true to vintage and again, great to use if you are going for a look where you are accentuating your eyes.
Red hot red
Red Hot Red is bright and bold. It is a bit warmer than Besame red and Marilyn's favourite!
Red Velvet is a deep, rich red which is flattering on most skin tones. Great for office wear or an everyday red, this delicious lipstick is neutral and not too bright.
We're adding this last product to the list as a little bit of a cheat and although it's not technically a lipstick, it is a beautiful colour and great addition to the Besame collection.
Lip Glaze – Cotton candy
Being enthusiasts for the eras before super-shiny lips were in vogue, there aren't many types of lip glosses that we would wear, but Besame's is one of them! Their Enriched Lip Glaze is beautifully creamy and thick, and is packed with anti-oxidants and anti-ageing ingredients. Vitamins A, C and E, green tea extract, marine collagen and peptides all work to keep your lips feeling full and healthy.
The wonderfully moisturising formula will keep your pout perfectly shiny for hours and has a delicious, subtle vanilla scent. We love to layer them over lipsticks, but they're fabulous for wearing alone too.
All these colours are stunning for day and night wear and are essential additions to any girl's handbag. But these lipsticks aren't the only products that Besame do, so check out Deadly is the Female's website and shop for an amazing selection of conditioning lip-liners, eyeshades and powders
