We know our value



There are few female characters in media that are as strong as Agent Carter. When we found out Besame Cosmetics was planning an Agent Carter collection we were so  excited! It's not often that we get makeup mirrored after our favorite heroines, and Peggy is definitely up there on that list. We love the way that Besame takes inspiration from both vintage makeup and the aspects of the show to create one a kind unique pieces. We are so thankful that Besame was gracious enough to let us try out these different pieces from the collection. We definitely will be back for more! Besame lipstick in the shade red velvet was the color Agent Carter wore on the show and therefore this partnership was kismet! Besame created three new pieces of tech for agents; they include a Passport Eyeshadow Palette, Invisible Dusting Powder, and 102 Sweet Dreams (Lipstick).These are the products we will be reviewing today. Keep scrolling to see our looks inspired by them!



 





This eyeshadow palette is the most travel friendly of the Besame eyeshadow palettes. It includes eyeshadow shades to create day and night looks. This palette is disguised as a vintage British passport. Each shade is inspired by the TV show. These eyeshadows are very blendable and easy to work with. 

On Paola's eyes: Allies, zero matter, and Midnight Oil
On Kirsten's eyes: Dugan, English, and Leviathan

Shades included (from Besame website):
DUGAN a beautiful shimmer brown, ZERO MATTER a shimmering buttery beige, ENGLISH a pastel shimmery pink, ALLIES a shimmery army green, LEVIATHAN a deep matte purple, and MIDNIGHT OIL a dark matte brown. 


THOUGHTS

We felt the presentation of the palette was absolutely gorgeous and unique. As for the colors themselves they are very rich and buildable. They are perfect for everyday wear, or making it more dramatic for a night time look. We liked how the shadows were pigmented enough that they could be seen easily on both our skin tones. We did find that the darker colors tended to show more on Paola's skin tone, as opposed to the lighter shades. However since they are buildable we had no problem getting them all to show, and it has become our go to palette.


 


Invisible Dusting Powder (Vegan)

 
THOUGHTS

This powder is the perfect addition to any makeup routine. This powder blurs your skin and makes it look flawless. Kirsten's favorite way to use this powder is to pat it right under her eyes to get rid of the creases and brighten them. This powder is white and needs to be blended into the skin or it will keep a white cast on the face.

We love how incredibly lightweight this powder is and how easily it blends into the skin, it adds an almost "air brush" effect to the skin. Paola likes to use a light dusting of it all over her face for that photo ready finish. It goes on very smoothly, is not heavy and lasts through a hot florida day. This is definitely our favorite powder formula yet!


 




102 Sweet Dreams (1946 Red Velvet in classic) is a beautiful neutral red shade in a case that is accurate to the show. The lipstick is the lipstick shade Agent Carter wore on the show. 



THOUGHTS

This lipstick is the same amazing formula as other Besame lipsticks so we knew we would love it! They are long wearing and packed with color. The lipstick can be a bit drying so you will want to make sure you use a lip balm before and after wears as well as exfoliate the dead skin. The lipstick is great on its own or can be paired with your favorite lipliner to insure it lasts all day and has no bleeding. 

We are no strangers to red velvet as it was one of the first shades we got from Besame, however the new and exclusive design of the lipstick tube truly sets this shade apart. This is one of our favorite reds to wear. It is very matte, pigmented and flattering on all skin tones.

We cannot thank Besame enough for letting us test and review these products. They are incredible and we cannot recommend this collection enough. If you had to only get one thing..well we'd say it's too hard to choose.  They have easily become some of our favorite make up products yet, and made their way into our everyday looks.
