Birchbox Breakdown

While we’re glad that hot rollers and garter belts are no longer in vogue, we can’t deny the appeal of vintage beauty. We’ve found that the easiest way to channel ’40s glamour is to stock up on these handcrafted lipsticks. Bésame founder and beauty historian Gabriela Hernandez painstakingly recreated the colors worn by Hollywood’s leading ladies of a bygone era—think Jean Harlow, Vivien Leigh, and Marilyn Monroe. Made with extradense pigments, they’re designed to withstand long days and nights, and the gold-plated tubes come in luxe red velvet pouches that beg to be paired with your fanciest clutch.

How to Use

Swipe onto your lips first thing in the morning or right before a big event. For extra precision, use a lip brush.

Besame is timeless!

I have been using Besame lipstick for 5 years now. Their colors are beautiful and they last all day! I have a couple of colors that are not available on here, but I can say that Besame Red and Debutante Pink work great on so many skin tones. I constantly receive compliments when I wear them. You will not be disappointed! ;)

Adorable

I bought the dusty rose color. It suits well, and lasts a good long time. I love the old school matte texture. The vanilla scent, also a big plus. As for presentation, it's in a glassy gold tube, and comes with a little red velvet pouch for travel. So much fun.

Wonderful reds!

This has become my favorite lipstick! I have it in Besame Red and in Red Velvet and both are gorgeous! It stays where I put it and has stayed vibrant through meals and drinks without needing reapplication. It is not too creamy or too drying and has a beautiful vanilla smell.
