Bésame is a line of cosmetics inspired by authentic vintage beauty products and makeup. I’ve been using their lipsticks for years. Now that it is winter, I’m currently in a cream blush/gel stain makeup mood. I want a dewy complexion so I’ve switched to cream-based products.

One of my favorite cosmetics brands, Hourglass, has launched new colors in their lip products, Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss and Panoramic Long Wear Lip Liner.
