Besame Cosmetics Order Arrived!

I was really excited to open this. Besame is a unique, vintage-inspired make-up line. Although shipping it here was crazy (more on that later) and I probably won’t place another order, it was totally worth it.

I ordered two of the Classic Color Lipsticks in Portrait Pink and Noir Red; their Signature Compact in Porcelain; the Crimson Cream Rouge; and their 1930s Mascara.

I love the lipsticks. You really feel like you’ve gone back in time to the 1950s. Back then, lipsticks were smaller, so the Besame lipsticks are smaller than a typical lipstick:

Speaking of MAC…the Besame lipsticks are similar to the MAC cremesheen lipsticks in formula, finish, and even the vanilla scent.

The mascara packaging is so glamorous, but it was the only product that was disappointing. I didn’t think the formula or brush did much for my lashes. But, I loved the rouge and the compact. Again, you really feel like you’ve gone back to another era. I mean, just look at this compact:

My order initially came to $122.00. The problem was with the brokerage and customs fees which weren’t included. Besame ships using UPS and they charged me an additional $55.00! which means I am not likely to place another order. I will just have to enjoy these for now.
