ARE YOUR MAKEUP SHADES REALLY VINTAGE REPRODUCTIONS?

Yes! We gather vintage makeup from estate sales, auctions and antique stores and recreate the colors and textures to exactly match the originals, including our classic reds. We use modern ingredients for safe and long wearing cosmetics.

IF I LIKE THE MATTE LOOK, ARE YOUR LIPSTICKS RIGHT FOR ME?

Bésame lipsticks are made with a semi-matte finish. We didn’t formulate our lipsticks with a matte finish for two reasons: First, and contrary to popular belief, vintage lipsticks from the early 20th century were not matte. They were made with petroleum products or castor oils, and were pastier than lipstick formulations today. Second, we didn’t opt for a matte formula because of texture; it’s terribly drying on the lips and would flake after a full day’s wear. Our satin finish won’t chap your lips and wears wonderfully well. Back then, women would blot the color to achieve a lasting finish, and you can do the same! Apply a layer of lipstick, blot with a tissue, reapply another layer, then blot again. Or, dust a layer of translucent powder on top of your lip color to seal and mattify.

ARE ANY OF YOUR PRODUCTS CONSIDERED VEGAN?

Yes! All our powders, both loose and pressed, Black Cake Mascara and Brown Cake Mascara, as well as our Cream Rouges. 

Our Classic Color Lipsticks and mascaras contain beeswax for texture, but the wax is properly sourced from very happy bees! 

ARE YOUR PRODUCTS GLUTEN FREE?

Yes! All of our products are Gluten Free. 

IS THIS WEBSITE SECURE?

Yes! We understand how important security is to you online, which is why we have partnered with Shopify, the industry leader, so you can rest assured your order will be placed safely and securely.
