Bésame is a lovely retro-esque brand created by Gabriela Hernandez – you can read all about the brand but if I were were to use three words to describe that brand it would be: Dainty, Golden and Elegant.
I got a lipstick and lipgloss in my first order – I am looking at the lip gloss first:
It’s hard to choose a make up item when all you have is a dulux paint style swatch, but I closed my eye and chose Chocolate…
Hmmm….its not really my kind of shade. See what it looks like after the jump! Chocolate smells a bit chocolatey-vanilla to me (it could be subliminal) and the its a sheer, light cocoa shade. Very pearly and is a medium thick texture:
Bésame’s gloss contains vitamin A, C, E and green tea extract. It also has squalene, aloe vera, macadamia nut extract etc.
Everything was going so well – chocolate is almost a slightly metallicy light nude, then my lips started to tingle….tingle…..tingle….an unfamilar tingle….yes. I am allergic. I didn’t swell up but it did burn my lips and it became a little uncomfortable to keep on.
Its possible this gloss has some lip plumping qualities? But the burning was not at all great.
Hmmm. So overall I think the colour is just ok, I think the texture is ok but having a burning reaction is not great. Well, you got to try or you don’t know!
