Anyone who reads this blog probably knows that Besame is my favorite cosmetic's company. In fact with the exception of my Burt's Bee's BB cream it is the only cosmetic's brand I use. First off they make gorgeous vintage inspired cosmetics that really look like the orginals right down to the packaging. Secondly they are cruelty free, no animal testing, which is a cosmetics must for me.
I am already fanatical about Besame's lipsticks, I love their opaque one coat coverage and era authentic colors (see these posts: post one, post two, post three) I tend to prefer a semi-matte lip stick, and naturally glosses are well, glossy. Still when I saw them on sale for $5.00 It was a bargain I couldn't resist and I decided to spring for the Rose glaze. Naturally like all Besame products the lip glaze arrived beautifully packaged.
The color in the container is an opalescent pink with a faint lilac tinge.
You can see the Rose glaze is opalescent and sheer with an purple tinge to its pinkness. I found the color almost invisible on my lips when applied alone, it just gave the faintest hint of shimmer, I didn't bother to take a picture. Then I decided to follow some advice on the Besame website and tried layering it over my Besame Exotic pink lipstick one of my favorite colors which unfortunately is no longer in stock. It is subtle but I really liked the effect.
Here is my Exotic Pink lipstick without the glaze.
and here it is with the glaze on top. In outdoor lighting:
Now is definitely the time to snatch up a Besame lip glaze is you are interested for $5.00 you can have shiny, glossy, vintagey lips!
