Why Blood Red? This is a true replica of a color from 1922. Gabriela found this color at an antique store in California and instantly felt it must be added to our lipstick collection. As women in the twenties began to take more risks with hair and clothing, they also started to take risks in makeup. The cupids bow lip shape, thin brows and dark lips became standard. Blood Red is the perfect complement to this time. Unlike most red lipsticks that have a pink undertone, Blood Red is a true red, with a true red undertone that can be worn full on or as a stain.
All Besame lipsticks are true replicas of lipstick shades from the past. Gabriela searches through actual vintage makeup to pick out particular colors that speak to her and truly represent the years they were produced. Using only the safest and best ingredients we make long lasting lipsticks to give you classic glamour at any era. Encased in a red and gold lipstick bullet inspired by the tubes of the 1940s, these treasures will look lovely when applied, having everyone turn heads. With our classic lipstick shape designed for form and function, used for many lipsticks in the 1930s and 1940s, you can apply with ease. Use the sharp tips to line lips and the blunt side to fill in color. Blot once or twice with tissue for long-lasting wear. Get ready to be admired...
