Noir Red Besame Lipstick

Vintage Glamour: @BesameCosmetics Noir Red Lipstick

Noir Red from Besame Cosmetics

Besame Cosmetics is a California based cosmetics company with a vintage feel. I talked about how I discovered the brand in a previous post that covered the red lipstick Agent Peggy Carter(Hayley Atwell) wears in Marvel’s Agent Carter. I ended up purchasing Noir Red.

Noir Red is described as a semi matte deep plum with one coat coverage.


Besame Cosmetics is cruelty-free

This lipstick doesn’t skip or skid across the lips to be semi-matte. You know you’re wearing lipstick when it’s on but it’s not uncomfortable because it’s not drying. This isn’t a long wear lipstick to me but there are instructions on the Besame website to help with longevity.  The color can be built up with a lip brush and or applied with maximum intensity directly from the tube. This is some high quality lipstick.

Now I have gush about the packaging. I love it so much. It’s what drew me in first place. The lipstick looks more like a keepsake than something you just toss into your purse and slap on haphazardly. From the box to the little red felt pouch to the gold tube, the old school glamour is front and center. I want to get another lipstick soon.
