Don’t stress; parties are supposed to be fun. And what could be more fun than creating a gorgeous new look for yourself with inspiring ideas from Besame Cosmetics, and then getting out and showing yourself off?

Earlier this month, I was invited to attend the annual Besame Holiday Party to celebrate the launch of Besame Vanilla Brightening Powder and French Vanilla Brightening Powder.

Besame Cosmetics

besame cosmetics founderFirst introduced in 2004, Besame is a luxury cosmetics line–the brainchild of Argentinian designer, Gabriela Hernandez–that features classic luxury makeup and fragrances for today’s modern woman.

As an artist, designer, and cosmetic historian, Gabriela Hernandez has created the beauty brand of her dreams; and in the process, has helped fuel a stylistic obsession with vintage glamour. Her products are inspired by memories of her grandmother’s makeup; with custom-designed gold compacts and gilded bullets filled with gorgeous shades of lip colors, right out of the 1940s.besame lipsticks

Vanilla Brightening Powder

Besame Cosmetics is launching their newest products–their Vanilla and French Vanilla Brightening Powders–in January 2015, and they will be available at all Sephora stores and You can currently find their Brightening Violet Powder on line there now.

besame vanilla brightening powderThe Besame Vanilla Brightening Powder and French Vanilla Brightening Powder, like everything else in their product line, are cruelty-free and hand-made in Los Angeles, California. These powders will instantly brighten dark circles around the eyes; and can be used over your regular foundation to “set” your makeup, or used alone to brighten skin tone.

The Brightening Powder comes in two shades–Vanilla, which is perfect for light to medium skin tones; and French Vanilla, for medium to darker skin tones. Each will give you a more polished look; and will carry the delicious, subtle scent of vanilla.

“This amazing partnership is allowing our customers the ability to walk into their nearest Sephora location, and pick up our new powders; and to reach a whole new group of women who will now discover our treasures,” said Gabriela Hernandez.

  1. I’ve never heard of Besame (or maybe I had, but I’m lucky if I remember pants on a given day let alone put on my face). Excited to check them out!

  2. I love the sound of this powder, love all the pictures!

  3. Thanks for sharing Ann…it sounds amazing…but then again, I wouldn’t expect anything less from Besame. Can’t wait to try it! 🙂
