Our Products

How is Bésame Makeup Formulated?

We use only the highest quality ingredients in Bésame formulations, including natural waxes, oils and extracts. Our products work well with sensitive skin and have not caused reactions with our customers.

Does Bésame Cosmetics test on animals?

No! Bésame does not test on animals at any level of production and uses natural responsible ingredients in all our products.

Are the make up shades really vintage reproductions?

Yes! We gathered antique makeup and recreated the colors and textures to exactly match the originals, including our classic reds.

I like the matte look. Are the lipsticks right for me?

We didn’t make the lipstick matte 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. 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.

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.

Are any of your products considered vegan?

Yes, all our powders both loose and pressed, as well as our Sweetheart Balm, are Vegan. Our lipsticks do contain beeswax for texture.
