    I know! I have a BOX full of Besame PLUS a small box of other brands...sheesh. I'm on a tight budget already because of the hundreds I've spent at Besame but I can't seem to have enough of Besame's lip products! I know we all love the vintage matte look but I been using the red berry lip glaze I got from their sale with red lipstick...OH MY! It is THEEEEEE BEST lip gloss I have ever used! It lasts for HOURS!!!! and not to mention, makes my red lips stand out even more! I NEEEED (lol) to buy more because no lipgloss even comes CLOSE to Besame's lip glazes!

    Here's a pic of the Besame lipsticks I found online. The person who took this captured the colors pretty well. It's only a TEENY bit brighter than how the colors really look...

  3. I got the 30's mascara and love it also. It doesn't give the false lash look like Bad Gal (which I love also) but it great for an every day mascara. If I had more money I would buy more too.:eek:

    Cherry Red..
    Does your mascara dry out really fast? I tend to have that problem with most mascaras... mabey its just me.. LOL

    It seems I will be drowning in buckets of makeup soon if I dont start using it all.. normally i just give things away.. most of it.. never even used.. and If it has.. only once.. LOL

    I am such a compulsive shopper.. Thankfully I have gotten a hold of myself before i bought the whole store! LOL

    I got my order in today. I am tremendously happy with the eyeshadows. For my free product I got crsytal lip glaze. I do not like lip glaze or gloss(its a texture thing). I was wondering if someone has a 30's mascera they dont want I could trade with them for the glaze.

    Oooo!! Ooo!!

    I want the clear lip gloss, and I am expecting my delivery tomorrow, but I have no idea what my free gift will be. If I get the mascara or something else not quite up my alley, I'd be game to trade. Keep me in mind!! :)

    I ordered Besame for the first time lastnight!!! I suddenly just felt like looking around the site and saw that they are having a closeout sale, so it looks like I decided to look at just the right time! I got 2 lipsticks, Besame Red for me and Champagne for my mom :D, the 1930s mascara, Sun Kissed rouge, and the satin roll. I absolutely cannot wait for them to arrive! I know they'll all be wonderful.

    Did anyone else place order at the very last minute? I just did...at 12:01 by my clock. I hope the order actually works...It said it did. I ordered the Besame Red, Red Hot Red, and the satin roll.

    I got my shipment on Friday!! I'm so excited!! I got Cherry Red, 2 Besame Reds (one for me and one for Mom), and my free gift was clear lip gloss!! :D

    So, no trading with Retrogirl 1941 :( . (I PMed ya!) Anyone else want to trade with her???? I know she has the clear lip gloss and is pining for the 1930s mascara, but it sounds like she'd trade for other stuff (not lip gloss).

    I also found Cherry Red to be a bit darker than I expected. I still love it, but if you're ordering, it's a bit more deep bing cherry than cherry popcicle colored. And I find Besame red to be a rich true red with a hint of blue. And I love the way they all smell!!! :eusa_clap

    I just ordered Besame and my order came tonight..I love that sale! I bought Pistachio Eye shadow, Besame Red lipstick, Cherry Red lipstick, and 1930s mascara (which I like the scent of). The lipsticks are great, I just wish they would have had Red Velvet in stock when I ordered. such great packaging.

    I gave in to the $12 shipping and pretty packaging at very nearly the last minute too... 11:51pm, lol .

    I bought 1 cherry red lippy, 2 carmine lippies, and pistachio shadow. I'm suspecting I'll love the carmine- I have a coral-peachy shiny lippy that looks great on me, so I'm hoping the matte orange-red works well for me too. If not- expect to see one carmine up for trade!

    I *love* the Carmine! It will be perfect on me when I go back to being a redhead! :) It's a beautiful color! :)

    I just got my order today:) Although, I wasn't very smart about this...I bought the loose powder and also got it for free in the Warm Trio Set that was sent to me for free. Should have bought something other than the loose powder:) Now I have 3 of them! Oh well, can never have enough powder. I also got the Peacock Blue eye shadow...which is a lot prettier now that i see it in person than on a computer screen:) I'm thinking that will be great night time color instead of the Socialite Brown I wear during the day. I went on the website today and there is nothing on there that says the sale is over?

    The sale continues!

    Hi everyone,

    I'm brand new to this site (so new I don't even have a picture up yet!) this is my first post, and I was poking around today looking for tips/tutorials on how to achieve the vintage look. I followed the links andI came across this thread and was absolutely taken by the Bésame line. That everything is currently still on sale doesn't hurt either.

    I just placed my first order and am now eagerly awaiting my goods! I also just got my new digital camera a few weeks back so what an opportunity to play. I'll post my vintage look provided I don't make myself look like a clown! :D

    I don't think Besame closed down, I heard they were re-packaging (maybe new products?).

    When the sale first started, I went a little crazy an ordered about $121.00 worth (tee hee!) but I love everything. I visited the warehouse about a year and a half ago and my friends and I were given the makeup artist discount, so I picked up a couple of items. I have since fallen in love with the loose powder and lipsticks...so much so that I am SO tempted to buy the reds set.

    As far as closing shop, probably not. Gabriella sent an e-mail a few months ago asking what flavors we would love in a lip balm as they are supposed to be coming out with some (I assume part of the "new" collection).

    If the packaging does change, I will be sad to see it go also :(

    I received my order today! Everything is amazing and I am thrilled. When I opened the box though, I found that I had not received one satin roll, but TWO! Plus the free lip glaze! I don't know if this is because after I made this order, I made another one the next day to order the eyebrow pencil and the translucent powder, but I certainly don't need two of these.

    Does anyone want to exchange the extra satin roll with me?

    I got my parcel two days ago (thanks to the wonderfull Miss Horne) and I LOVE my fab new carmine lipstick. Usually I just wear cherry red and noir red, but carmine might takes their place. My man liked it, too.
