Vintage Pretty...

Sunday, October 29, 2006

I love all things vintage. From movies to clothes to jewelry to books, I have been known to act like I'm from another decade. My line sister Shannan used to say I belonged in the 70s. So one day while browsing through Besame Cosmetics by Gabriela Hernandez website, I instantly fell in love with Art Deco/30s/50s inspired packaging. I'm such a sucker for packaging! What I fell for first was the Alluring Eye Shadow. First, I like that there are only six shades. I don't need four types of blue!!Secondly, I can sample them before making a major purchase of one. When my eye shadows arrived, the sleek gold case lived up to its word. No bigger than a silver dollar, the case comes complete with mirror just big enough for the eye. I applied Socialite Brown from the lash line to the crease, then put Shimmer Beige on my brow bone.The Socialite Brown gave a satiny shimmer that wasn't flat and the Shimmer Beige was a perfect highlighter giving just a little glimmer. The other shadows include Black Pearl,Plum Dandy,Pistachio,and Peacock Blue. I can't wait to have "mucho" more from Besame!
