Coco Beau's Thoughts...
Bésame Cosmetics resurrect true glamour in beauty, the beauty of a golden bygone age.
Created by Argentinean born, Gabriela Hernandez, Bésame Cosmetics combine ‘romantic sensibility’ and ‘historical detail’ with high performance. Gabriela drew on her background in art and design, her love of feminine detail, and memories of her glamorous grandmother when creating a range that brings together artistry with romance.
The Bésame range has details and formulas that make the women who use them feel glamorous in their own unique way.
At Coco Beau we love the pure unashamedly feminine and beautiful packaging that makes even applying the products a glamorous experience! The design cries out vintage Hollywood luxury, with products that would not look out of place on the dressing tables of the screen greats of the forties and fifties! Why have a plain tube when you can have a gold coloured, shining adorned one? Why have powder in a plainly functional pot when you can have a beautiful compact in a pretty braid-tied bag? These products make you feel ‘one hundred percent gorgeous woman’ before you even begin to apply them.
However, Bésame Cosmetics are not all about packaging, they also perform, and how! Here are some of the ways we love Bésame:
Crimson Cream Rouge: For timelessly pretty flushing cheeks and tantalisingly tinted 'Snow White' lips, Crimson Cream Rouge is a vintage-inspired tin of loveliness! This beautiful concentrated pinky-red cream, shows exactly why rouge has been a handbag staple across the ages!
Classic Oolour Lipsticks: These beautiful products are packaged in gorgeously adorned, vintage-inspired gold-plated tubes, and come complete with their own little red velvet pouch. Inside the pretty box, you’ll find a lipstick that will take your lips back to a more glamouous time! In super-long lasting, traffic-stoppingly beautiful, pigmented shades, based on the favourites of beauties from a bygone age.
Try rubbing your finger over the top of the lipstick and applying it to your lips in dabbing, smudging or pressing movements for different effects.
Classic Masterliner Pencils (eyes): These soft dual-ended pencils are a joy to hold, in their gold-plated packaging. Classic in design, but 21st century in the ease of twist of these automatic pencils. Water-resistant, vibrant, smooth and long-lasting colours can be used to exaggerate the beauty of your eyes by lining and defining or smudging for a gorgeous smoky eye.
Cashmere Powder Compact: Encased in a glamorous gold metal compact, these silky textured powder foundations give a flawless, polished but natural coverage, radiant but without shimmer. The formulation also offers a degree of ‘natural’ sun protection, and comes in shades to suit various complexions. Use these with a light touch (with a brush) to set your foundation as powder, or as a powder foundation on their own. With the little mirror, red-backed puff and red braid-trimmed bag, you’ll smile every time you see this compact in your handbag!
Bésame are the products you love to hold and play with. They just happen to produce fantastic results too!
