1941 Victory Red Lipstick
1941 Victory Red Lipstick
During the war, the American military forces commissioned the first Victory Red lipstick to women in uniform. The clear, strong tone looked vibrant when worn with the standard-issue, olive-drab jacket and skirt. The caps worn by women in the armed forces often featured a brilliant red braid trim detail, and Victory Red also accentuated this band. A color meant to inspire positivity and hope with the line, "Beauty as Duty". The name of this shade references the Allied Victory in World War II. Besame’s "Victory Red" is an absolutely faithful color-match to the original from 1941.
A highly pigmented and saturated red. Denser, brighter, deeper and a bit darker than Besame Red. Ideal for all skin tones. A semi-matte finish with one coat full coverage. The highest natural pigment content for a smooth, indelible, feather-proof finish. Enriched with squalane, vitamin C, and aloe.
