This is a true replica of a color from 1925. Women of the twenties were taking leaps forward, whether in their fashion choices, their pastimes, or their rights. It was a time of moving away from traditional expectations and taking the world by storm. Red lipstick was a new way for these women to show their daring side while feeling confident and beautiful everywhere they went. Forever Red is a deep and cool red shade that would have been a popular choice amongst the socialites for an evening out... maybe even to a speakeasy or a dance hall!
Slightly cooler than neutral with a vivid undertone, this classic red looks stunning on all skin tones. Can also be worn as a stain for a natural dark pink lip. A semi-matte finish with one coat full coverage. The highest natural pigment content for a smooth, feather-proof finish. Enriched with squalane and vitamin E.
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 a 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.
