Besame – Treasures of the Lagoon Shadow Palette- Review Time

Remember when I said that Besame Cosmetics has my credit card on file? Well, I was technically kidding, but they might as well have it because I practically buy everything they put out.

It’s a sickness! But a beautifully one because the Treasures of the Lagoon Shadow palette from their Peter Pan Collection is soooo pretty!

This is Besame’s second collab (4th if you count the Marvel ones) with Disney and in a year when every makeup brand is coming out with a Disney collab (ie Colourpop and Dose of Colors), I find that this one is way more unique. While the other two focused on more mainstream characters like the Princesses and Mickey, Besame stuck to their modern vintage motto and not only threw us a curveball going with Peter Pan, but specifically choosing the Mermaids as the theme of their collection.

Let’s face it, Peter, Wendy and the gang are fun, but the mermaids? They stole the show with their Regina George routine. Mermaids are Memorable!

The palette features 8 pans and, just like their Snow White Collection, drew inspiration from the actual ink and paints used during the making of the film. What you get is a fun and bright palette that, I would describe as half warm/half cool.

Now, the inexperienced makeup junkies like myself may look at this palette and find it difficult to create a look without dipping into other palettes because of the half/half situation we have going here, but I’m sure the more experienced artist won’t have a problem. Besides, I don’t mind going into other colors to create a finished look.

The green and blues are all metallics and swatch like a dream. I will say that I was a little disappointed to see that the the pearly white shade with a blue shift came broken, but I was able to press it back without a problem. I find this color to be the standout and as inner corner highlight the perfect touch when utilizing the other 3 shimmer shades.

The left half of the palette are the warm mattes. As I’ve come to expect, the plummy, Burgandy shade in the top center swatches a pit patchy, but does blend quite nicely with a brush. You will have to build it up, which I will the same for the brighter red just below it. However, the orange and yellow shades are very nicely pigmented and swatch like a dream. I really enjoyed using them in my crease and just about everywhere.

The palette does come with an itty bitty brush, which I can’t seem to find any other use for except the inner corner. I feel like it’s kind of unnecessary and if that’s what drove the price up to $48, then I would have preferred no brush as I’m pretty sure the Snow White palette debuted at around $38.

I am affiliated with Besame, so if you want to pick up the palette for yourself, feel free to use my link by clicking here. I will make a slight commission if you decide to purchase anything and for that, I thank you in advance!

Let me know if you have already picked up anything from this collection and what your thoughts are.

Till next time, my friends!

Besame Cosmetics – Peter Pan Mermaid Lagoon – New Collection Reveal

I was totally snowed, friends!!

If you read my earlier post this week, you would have seen me hypothesizing on Besame’s new collection and I was totally convinced that it was going to be Cinderella.

Well, I was wrong, but not disappointed in the least.

Honestly, I love that Besame took a step back from the Disney princesses and went with another very much loved character. Actually, the mermaids had like a 10 minute role in the film, yet they were so memorable because they were like the Mean Girls of Neverland.

I mean they did want to drown poor Wendy!

That doesn’t take anything away from this collection and quite frankly, I already have my calendar marked for the November 5 release because, friends, I’m getting a few things!

And by a few, I mean like 90%.

First off, you know I never say no to an eye palette and this one is so pretty and fresh. I love both the Snow White and Agent Carter palettes, but they were darker in tone and this one is so crisp and light. I love it!

img_0531

I will most definitely pick up the bronzer and highlighter, because…. seashells? I am a Florida girl after all.

I won’t pick up all 3 lipsticks, but definitely one of the shades, most likely the pinky toned one in the pic above from Trendmood. I also will skip the perfume, as though I’m sure the bottle is gorgeous (is it the mermaid?), I’m very sensitive to certain scents and I always need to smell perfume before I buy it.

I am so very excited for this collection and freaking Besame has my credit card practically on auto payments as it is, so it’s no brainer for me.

Stay tuned to for more info as I get them.

Till next time, my friends!

Besame Cosmetics – New Collection Theory – Cinderella???

If you have been a long time reader of my blog, then you know I am a HUGE fan of Besame Cosmetics. I love their attention to detail and I really get wrapped up in the whole nostalgia of the brand.

I bought every last piece of the Agent Carter line and recently picked up some of the Snow White pieces that went on sale.

It’s funny because just last week I was wondering what Besame was up to. After they launched the Avengers Infinity War line, I really haven’t seen any major collections announced. Well, as usual the Universe picked up on my musings and was like, “Patience, my friend.”

This past weekend, I was checking my emails and I came across this one from Besame advertising their 1950’s Prom Party in the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, which if I didn’t live completely across the country, I would totally go, when I noticed in itty bitty writing ” for the launch of our newest Disney collection.”

Ohh…. Besame. You are so sneaky!! You thought I would miss that, didn’t you?

Of course, I’m trying to tie the theme to a Disney movie and automatically, I think of Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty since both came out in the 50’s.

However, today Besame dropped another hint when they posted on Instagram that they will be announcing their newest collection on Thursday. They didn’t give you too many hints, other than the post below with a bunch of bubbles floating around, but it was enough to get all Besame Beauties in a titter.

Some speculated that it was Ariel, but that wouldn’t align very well with their 1950’s prom theme. Besides The Little Mermaid came out in the 80’s. Then someone said that the bubbles could be a direct reference to the Sing Sweet Nightingale scene in the movie where Cinderella was mopping the floors while she sang and her step sisters were in the other room and I was “Bingo!”.

You see, this is why I like Besame. They don’t drop bombs, but rather little Easter eggs and I appreciate that they keep us engaged. They could have easily just put a picture of the glass slipper and have us all go into fits, but they were like “Yeah, we are going to make you work for this.”

Check back on Friday to see if my theory was right. Either way, I’ll probably buy it!

While we are on the subject of Disney Princesses, Besame is probably making some room for their new collection by putting their Snow White products on major sale, so if you didn’t pick up anything when it first launched, now is your chance. The two Snow White palettes are on sale for the next week and a half for only $10 each!

All you have to do is use code Shadow10 at checkout and you will be saving like $28. They also have their lip balm trio on sale for $8 if you use code Pies8. Just remember you can only use one code at a time.

I am affiliated with Besame, so you want to use my link, feel free to do so by clicking here. I do get a slight commission if you decide to purchase anything, so keep that in mind.

So who do you think the newest Disney collection will feature? Let me know in the comments below.

Till next time, my friends!

Love It!

Brands I Love, but Everyone Skips Over

I was going to say that everyone hates, but that wasn’t the vibe I was going for and I don’t think anyone, including myself, hates a brand, they just prefer others.

Does that make sense?

Anyways, these are just some brands that I feel don’t get enough love on social media, but I think are pretty darn good.

Almay

I know. I know. Almay is kind of the red headed step sister of the makeup world. Always shoved all the way in the back of the drugstore makeup aisle alongside Neutrogena. They never really get any attention. Well, they really weren’t doing anything to make themselves noticed until recently when it looks like they rebranded.

Personally, I love their Shadow Squads and their Butter-kiss Lippies are so creamy. I own 4 of them and literally one is in each one of my favorite purses because they are moisturizing with a dash of quick color.

Also, their makeup wipes are completely underrated. They take off EVERYTHING!!

Besame Cosmetics

One of two brands that I am affiliated with at this time. I LOVE everything about Besame, but I feel like they are a niche brand.

Generally, people who have some sort of affinity for retro looks and styles seem to really favor this brand, but I love them for their all out commitment to the production of replicas and also because their products are really good. In an era when brands are coming out left and right with new products, I appreciate that Besame takes it sweet time to perfect a products.

If you haven’t tried Besame yet, I recommend starting off with one of their lipsticks. I love 1941 Victory Red, but 1946 Velvet Red is pretty popular. The are long lasting and SUPER pigmented. The square shaped tip of the lipstick takes some getting used to, but I work around that.

BH Cosmetics

So I know that a lot of people say they love this brand, but I just don’t hear enough hype around it and I don’t know why. I love BH! I think they have an excellent combination of quality and price and, also, like Besame aren’t releasing stuff left and right, which makes me think they are being conscience of whats going into their makeup.

I see a lot of hype around their brushes and their Festival palette was a real hit this spring/summer, but I’m a fan of their baked shadows. I LOVE the Supernova palette and use it all the time. The colors are metallic, pigmented and last all day. Also, they are really easy to apply with your fingers, so no brush necessary, which is great for those days you are rushing out the door.

For the price, it’s a win!!

Antonym Cosmetics

Ok, I would consider Antonym a small indie brand, but they have a pretty loyal following and for good reason. They are AWESOME! Not only are they certified organic, but they are headquartered in my very own hometown of Miami (extra brownie points for that).

They are are on the pricy side, but well worth it. Their baked blush in Peach is my go to blush of all time. I may stray here and there and use another one every so often, but always go back to my Peach. If you are you looking for good quality basics, then check out Antonym. You won’t regret it.

Any brands you want to give a shout out to?

If so leave them in the comments below.

Till next time, my friends!

Besame Infinity Stones Rollerball Lip Gloss – Review Time

I don’t know if you all have picked up on my obsession with Marvel (ahem… Agent Carter, anyone?), but I tend to geek out over anything comic book related. Combine Marvel with makeup and it’s like the stars have aligned in the most magical way possible.

So when I saw that Besame had a discount code on their Infinity Stone Rollerball lip glosses, I was sold.

Truth be told, I don’t recall a whole lot of hype around them when they first came out and at first thought I can see why. They are super cool to look at, but they are all basically a colorless lip gloss. Spending $35 on something you can easily pick up at the drugstore for much less sounds a little more sane.

However, I don’t buy Besame makeup just because I need a new blush or lipstick , I buy it for the story and experience behind the products. So I really didn’t need much of a push to hit submit on my purchase.

The actual lip gloss itself is fine. As I mentioned, they are all clear and each one has a distinctive scent to it although very faint and nothing like the artificial fruit scents those roller balls I used to use in middle school had. You know what I’m talking about, right?

Also, the formula itself is lovely. It’s a thick oil base that nicely coats the lips. It does have a heaviness to it, but I don’t mind it. I also like that the roller ball doesn’t dump a whole lot of shine all at once, so you have the ability to go with a soft natural shine or full out gloss if you want with a few more layers. It’s not super long lasting, so you might want to throw it in your purse on your way out the door to reapply.

Which is fine, because much like all Besame products the packaging is where it’s at and you are going to want to show this one off. Housed in a clear, long glass tube with both Besame and Marvel logos on it, the design is supposed to resemble a lava lamp from the 70’s. If you tilt the tube from one end to the other, you actually do see a bubble slowly make its way up and down.

I could honestly see myself following that little bubble up and down during one of my endless conference calls at work.

There are six colors to choose from and I don’t need all 6 so I will definitely give some out to my girlfriends to enjoy.

This might even be a cute stocking stuffer for Christmas! Just break the set apart and you have 6 gifts!

UPDATE: Besame just released a code on the Infinity Stone Rollerballs!!! Use code Infinity9 at checkout and you can get the entire set for $9. That is a Steal!!!

I am affiliated with Besame Cosmetics, so if you want to purchase the Infinity Stones Rollerballs or any other products, feel free to use my link by clicking here. Keep in mind, I do make make a slight commission if you buy anything.

So who is your favorite Marvel character? I’m a total Cap Girl and it breaks my heart that Chris Evans will be stepping down from the role after the next Infinity War movie, but my love will go on.

Till next time, my friends!

Besame Cosmetics Agent Carter Passport Shadow Palette and Invisible Dusting Powder – Review Time!

Besame Cosmetics recently debuted the second part of their Marvel Agent Carter line, or as I like to call it, their EVIL plot to take all my money. They have somehow figured out my weakness for eye shadow palettes and SUPER cute packaging and are basically holding my credit card hostage by releasing the Passport Shadow Palette and Invisible Dusting Powder at the same time.

I mean seriously, Besame, you might as well just charge my VISA as you go along because it looks like I am going to buy it all.

I have to say that Besame gets an A++ on this collection. Their previously released Field Agent Lip Kit was genius, so was hoping for some of the same with this one and sure enough from marketing to packaging to quality, I think they batted this out of the park as well.

The eyeshadow palette has to be my favorite out of the two I picked up during this release. Consisting of 3 mattes and 3 shimmers, they are STUNNING:

  • Dugan – shimmery copper
  • Zero Matter – shimmery vanilla
  • English – matte/slightly satin light pink
  • Allies – shimmery olive green
  • Leviathan – matte brick red
  • Midnight Oil – matte chocolate brown

All the colors are creamy to the touch and blend beautifully. Zero Matter performs nicer with a little setting spray, but Dugan and Allies (my favorite) work beautifully by simply patting it on your lid with your finger. The two dark mattes, Leviathan and Midnight Oil, are quite pigmented so I found building the color little by little worked best for me otherwise it’s going to be harder to temper if you go in heavy handed.

Let’s not gloss over the packaging of this palette because it is so fabulously thought out, that I squealed when I opened it. Resembling a British Passport, when you open it up, it has Ms. Carters demographic information, in what I am assuming is her handwriting, and her signature. It even comes complete with a small passport picture sized mirror, which although does not provide much assistance in creating a look, is really meant to help you get into the role. If you hold it just right, you suddenly become Agent Carter.

SWOON!

The Invisible Dusting Powder is another packaging winner. Complete with Shield logo on the front and a decoder running along the edge of the mirror, it’s really a collectors piece. If I had one complaint though was that the packaging is plastic and next to the leather bound palette and the ribbed gold of the lipsticks, it does feel, if not look a bit cheap. The powder itself is fine as well. It’s translucent, but I recommend to dab lightly as it will leave a white cast if you go in heavy.

I am affiliated with Besame Cosmetics, so if you are interested in picking up anything from the Agent Carter line, feel free to use my link by clicking here. Keep in mind that if you purchase anything, I will make a slight commission.

UPDATED 10/23: Use code Carter50 to get the Invisible Dusting Powder for 50% off ($17.50)

Besame Agent Carter – Field Agent Lip Kit – Review Time!

I think I have been waiting for this launch FOREVER! Ok, a little less than a year, but DAMN! In this day and age when life is all about instant gratification, waiting this long had me flashing back to dial up internet and waiting for about 2 hours to download some music.

But don’t fret my friends, the wait was worth it!

The Field Agent Lip Kit was shrouded in secrecy and Besame dropped little nuggets for months, wetting our appetites for this collections:

  • A letter from Howard Stark
  • Speeding Ticket
  • Newspaper Clippings
  • Origami Note

I mean they took the theme seriously and, in retrospect, it was neat. Spying is not easy stuff and I think that the build up and clues sort of led us through all the twists and turns that this profession may take you. Nothing is literally handed to you. You have to work for your lipsticks (err…I mean target). Also, I think they held off with the launch to time it with the upcoming Avengers Infinity War Movie, which is also cool.

The whole concept of the lip kit was crafted down to the last detail. It was like one of those gifts you receive, where you open one box and find another wrapped box and open that one and find another and so on and so on.

When you opened the actual delivery box, you are met with another box that looks like an old fashioned parcel, with postage stamps hailing from all over the world. It’s addressed to Margaret P. Carter and the return address is from Besame Cosmetics. I mean what an introduction!

img_1285

The second box, which I will be buried with,  was a jewelry box. It has the intials PC (Peggy Carter) on the front and when you open this box, you have a note and picture of Howard Stark, looking very Old Hollywood Handsome (I don’t think we would expect anything less from Howard). On the inside lid is the SSR or Shield Logo.

img_1286

Seriously I’m dying right about now! But this is not even the best part!!!

img_1288

There is a secret compartment that houses your “newest pieces of tech” or your three lipsticks. The tubes are in your classic Besame gold, but instead of the usual flower design, it’s a sleek ribbed design with the name of the lipstick written in Typewriter font running down the side. When you open the cap, MARVEL is embossed on the inside tube.

img_1290-1

Ok! Now I am dead!

img_1296

You get three lipstick shades:

  • 102 Sweet Dreams – a deep red shade
  • 103 Forget Me Not – a deep mauve
  • 104 Always Be True – a bright classic red

I like Besame lipsticks, but I have always found them a little dry and if your lips were not properly moisturized, you will find that you have to go over with the color a second time to cover any patchiness. However, I feel like the formula was tweaked a little with this collection, as they are definitely creamier when you swatch and apply.

I do think they benefit from a lip liner and you will have to reapply as I found the colors to fade throughout the day, but I won’t fault it too much as I think that is typical with cream lipsticks.

Besame is scheduled to drop 102 Sweet Dreams as as single, along with a powder compact and an eye palette, which you all know I am going to get and once again make sure that I am buried not only wearing the entire collection, but also with the actual items themselves.

Besame Cashmere Stick Foundation – Review Time!

You all know that I am big believer in the Universe sending you signs, right?

Have I got a doozy of a story for you. Last summer, I purchased the Besame Cashmere Stick Foundation along with the 1941 Victory Red lipstick. Unfortunately, I went a shade too light for me at the time and decided that I would put it away till my summer tan faded a bit. Well, in the process of moving houses in August, I misplaced it and was never able to find it and I just assumed it got lost among all the boxes and chaos.

Fast forward 7 months, I get an email from Besame saying that their stick foundations were going to be 35% off (I am an affiliate, so I get advance notice of sales from time to time). I thought about my lost foundation and figured that maybe I would take advantage of the sale and pick up a new one to give it a shot now that me and Snow White can compete for Ms. Pasty Skinned 2018. I headed over to their website and saw that the Cashmere Foundation Sticks were $10 each.

Umm….what?

I know I paid something like $25 or so last year, so to see them at $10, I though they must be discontinuing them. Long story short, I decided against purchasing the foundation, despite it sale price, because I am on this Low Buy and having already splurged on the Agent Carter Kit (future post in the works), I didn’t have any real need for it. I figured, it’s still $10 I get to keep in my pocket.

Ok, so this is where the Universe kicked in. A few days later, I am getting ready to head out to dinner with my friend Yudy, and I decide that I want to switch purses. I go into my closet and pick this GORGEOUS blue Coach bag from the back of the shelf and open it up to clean it out, as it’s been quite some time since I last used it. Lo and behold, sitting in the bottom of the purse is the Besame Cashmere Foundation Stick in Bisque.

Thanks, Universe!

The packaging of this product is STUNNING. Encased in a gold tube, with Besame’s signature flower design, it’s definitely a collectors item. It’s the kind of beauty product that you would display on your vanity.

Unfortunately, that is about the nicest thing I can say about this foundation because I just could not make it work for me. The consistency, when placed on your face, is creamy, but it somehow dries down to an almost powder feel and that was the main problem I had because it just made it difficult for me to blend. When I used a beauty sponge, I felt like the wet sponge was picking product up, instead of blending it, which made my skin look patchy. None of my brushes seemed to be dense enough to move the product around and disperse it evenly either.

The best method I found to evenly distribute the product were my fingers, but when I finally got it looking the way that I like, I felt like it sunk into every pore and collected into every line on my face.

I even tried different primers to see if it would help. The first one I used was the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer, but I found that it exacerbated the powdery finish of the foundation and made my skin look too dry and cakey. Using the Farsali Rose Gold Elixir worked the best, but once my natural oils kicked in, I could see all the product settle into EVERY SINGLE PORE ON MY NOSE. So Gross!

If that wasn’t enough, I thought that maybe with such a thick consistency, this stick foundation might work best as a concealer. It actually did cover up my dark circles quite nicely, but I still couldn’t prevent it from settling into the fine lines under my eyes.

I honestly give up.

So, this is a serious pass for me. I don’t seem to have the right skin type or face products on hand to make this work for me. However, if you like this foundation, hop on over to the Besame website and pick up one for you now that they are on sale.

As I mentioned, I am affiliated with Besame Cosmetics, but seeing as this was a miss for me, it just doesn’t feel right to make any commission off of it. However, I will still share the code (not tied to me though) I got sent for 35% off $10. That means that the final price will be $6.50, which I think is a nice deal if you happen to like this product or like to collect Besame products.

The code is Foudation35.

YES, there is a typo and it’s missing an N, but when I was testing out the code yesterday and typed in FOUNDATION35, it didn’t recognize it, but when I typed FOUDATION35, it gave me the discount.

Till next time, my friends!

Besame Agent Carter – Teaser Email

It’s time for Beauty Avengers to Assemble!

I was perusing my emails today and, low and behold, I find a little nugget about Besame’s upcoming Marvel Agent Carter line. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to decipher the clue they sent, so I am calling on all my Agent Carter fans for help.

What do you think? Is there a clue here on when the line is going to drop?

I know that Red Velvet must be part of the line as there is clearly a reference to it below and Besame also happened to feature it today in Instagram and Twitter. Not to mention that the color formulation is from 1946, which would place us right around the same time Agent Carter joined Shield, but what else am I missing?

Anyone else able to pick up on any other tidbits? If so, drop them in the comments below. We can super sleuth together.

Besame Cosmetics – It’s Vintage, Not Old. Just Like Me.

I am officially 40 years old today! Not sure why I added an exclamation point there, to be honest, but positivity, my friends. Positivity.

In honor of me entering the 4th decade of my life, I’d thought it would only be appropriate to talk about vintage makeup. Ok. Not the kind you buy in eBay or find in grandma’s closet, but the new kind sold by Besame Cosmetics, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite brands.

A little back story on how I came across this brand…

A while back I was reading, Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella. It’s a quirky, but extremely charming novel about a modern girl, Lara, who finds herself haunted by the spirit of her deceased aunt, Sadie. Back in the 1920’s, Sadie epitomized the modern woman. She dressed in short dresses, wore makeup, smoked, drank and dated men her parents did not approve. However, she died all alone in a nursing home with no family or friends around, and decided that her niece, who is in her 20’s, was going to help her with some unfinished business solving the mystery of a cherished piece of jewelry and artwork. Of course, along the way, Sadie ends up helping Lara, a practical person by nature, to let loose a bit and enjoy life. It’s a fabulous story.

Anyways, there is a part of the book where Sadie convinces Lara to dress up in typical flapper girl garb for a date with a hunky American businessman. They end up in a second hand store, where Sadie, invisible to everyone except Lara, begins pointing out all the items she would have worn back in the 1920’s, including makeup. Sophie Kinsella went into such great detail describing how the lipsticks, powder and mascara not only looked, but how it was used and applied, that it stuck with me. So when actually doing some research on vintage makeup,  I came across Besame Cosmetics.

I was immediately hooked on the brand. Not only did it look like something out of Twenties Girl, the whole website had this vintage, old Hollywood vibe that I dig. Their lipsticks are all replicas of shades used from 1910 -1960’s and their cake mascara is also supposed to mimic the type used by women of that time. Just check out some of the Instagram pictures posted by their fans and you will get an idea of how totally cool these vintage looks are.

Besame 1941

I swear, they could be selling puppy poop in a tube and I would have bought it simply for the presentation.

That’s kind of gross, actually, but you get my drift.

I have a long list of items that I want to buy from Besame, including everything from the upcoming Marvel Agent Carter line — sight unseen — but I decided, shortly before the eve of my 40th birthday, that the most appropriate item would be a lipstick, aptly named 1941 Victory Red.

I know that something named 1940 You’re Old would be better, but Besame skipped that year, so when deciding between 1939 Tango Red or 1941 Victory Red, I went with the second one. Which works for me because 1941 is a gorgeous, vibrant, highly pigmented, true red. It’s not stiff, which allows for the color to glide on easily on to your lips. I wish I could do a live demo to show you how much color goes on with one swipe. I am in love!

Besame 1941 swatch

Also, I need to take a moment to discuss how gorgeous the tube is. I would totally take it out in the middle of a dinner date with the hubs or right before a big meeting and reapply my lipstick just to show it off. Now, I know that this may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I am totally swooning right now.

Typically, I don’t wear colors this vibrant on a day to day and reserve them for special occasions like my birthday, but, like Lara, I’ve decided that life’s too short to sit around and wait for the right moment to wear a cute dress, take a day off to go to the beach, or in this case, put on red lipstick. So, I decided, just before the BIG 40 on a random Thursday, to get all glammed up and wear Victory Red. I didn’t do much. I worked from home, packed up some old (vintage?) kitchen stuff in boxes to take to the Goodwill and attempted to build a Minecraft Lego set with Logan. It was, for all intents and purpose, a totally boring day. But every time I looked in the mirror, I was like…Damn Girl! You look FABULOUS!

Maybe 40 won’t be so bad, after all.
