Bésame Cosmetics dedicates beauty line to Marilyn Monroe as part of ‘Iconic Women’ series

The 15-piece product range includes products inspired by the Hollywood star’s beauty looks

LA-based cosmetics brand Bésame has paid homage to 50s female figurehead Marilyn Monroe with a dedicated beauty collection.

The 15-piece range, inspired by the blonde bombshell’s signature beauty looks, is an extension of the brand’s ‘Iconic Women’ series and is available in two product curations or as a complete set.

Marilyn’s Cosmetic Valet Case comprises Bésame’s full product line boasting a refillable compact, mascara, trio of lipsticks, two lip liners, two eyeliner pencils, highlighter, as well as two gloss products, an eyeshadow quad, sharpener and Marilyn lashes, based on the lash products Monroe used on-screen.

The full set is housed in a limited edition box made of sapele mahogany with a golden metal signature, velvet interior and gold-plated clasp.

The Essential Marilyn collection, housed in an embossed keepsake box, includes the full range apart from its refillable compact, while the Red Carpet Compact and Lipstick Set includes the brand’s Red Hot Red Lipstick in a replica tube used by Monroe with a faux diamond top, as well as the refillable compact.

“We’ve designed this make-up collection to feature Marilyn's favorite colours and historically accurate products," says Gabriela Hernandez, founder of Bésame Cosmetics.

“These colours are authentic, and we are incredibly proud to be releasing them as they are a reflection of Marilyn and her personal style.

“Wearing her make-up is a way to celebrate who she was, and her influence over the world of personal beauty.”

The products are expected to launch on 23 April via besamecosmetics.com.
