Besame 1930's Mascara

Creating a darkly glamorous 1930's inspired make up

I've been a fan of Besame Lipstick for years. Their bullet shaped lipsticks are such a glamorous homage to a bygone time and the quality of the product is amazing, highly pigmented,long lasting and in wonderful shades which look particularly fab on vintage inspired ladies but work equally well with edgy fashion.

The lovely Lotty Blue are now one of the exclusive suppliers of Besame in the UK and Lisa who runs the company knowing my love of retro inspired glamour sent me one of the brands 1930's mascaras to try.

Rather than just do a straight forward review I thought I would give Lilly a 1930's inspired make over to show you what the mascara can do.
This being a thirties style product its not about lengthening the lashes rather its about separating them and adding to the smoky eyed allure of the Jazz baby theme.

Ive been using this mascara for a while now and really,really like it. Aside from the packaging which is as you would expect from Besame is just adorable the product is lovely. The mascara is fairly thin so very buildable. It claims to have conditioning properties and I did feel it left my lashes glossy and soft which is unusual for a mascara.

For me this is the perfect mascara for when you want more natural looking lashes or if you tend to suffer from the dreaded "clumping' I also use it as a base coat under my false lashes and as a bottom lash enhancer.
At £19.75 it isn't cheep but unlike a lot of other make up marketed as luxury this does really feel special.

For Lilly's make up I created a smokey eye using carbon by Mac and
shades broken, beware and bewitched from Urban Decays Theodora Oz palette. I lined the eyes with collection 2000's gel liner and then coated the lashes with the Besame mascara.

Keeping with the Besame theme I also used Besames Cherry red lipstick on her lips.Lilly finger waved her hair, gently rolling it underneath to create a soft bob.
