Welcome to the alluring world of Besame Cosmetics. A vintage makeup brand which honours the style, spirit, and sensibility of female beauty.
Our 1940s tube packaging, the squeeze tube design is truly versatile and uniquely hygienic. For the individual or the professional working on multiple actors, one tube prevents waste and contamination, as the applicator never enters the container. You control how much product is on the applicator by squeezing the desired amount onto the brush. Use the included applicator brush or any you have on hand for different effects. Whether used for a natural look or a more glamorous makeup style, this mascara will leave lashes with a beautiful glossy finish. Use a small amount for subtle definition or use more to build up lashes for a deeper effect. The prolonged drying time allows ample time to work with the formula and build volume without clumping. And since every Bésame product is tested with our founder’s sensitivity in mind, this mascara delivers great performance and washes off with mild soap and water. Bésame products are always Paraben-free, cruelty-free, gluten-free andNZ$ 60.00

This shade is a true replica of a color from 1965. During the 1960s paler lip shades were all the rage so that the bold eye makeup looks of the time could take center stage. Gabriela found this perfect peach color from 1965 and knew it had to be a part of our line up. A soft and flattering color on all skin tones, this makes it the perfect every day shade or companion to a smokey eye look. We think of Twiggy and 60s Audrey Hepburn when we swipe on this gorgeous color!NZ$ 55.00
