We’re at D23 Expo getting an up-close look at the new Bésame Cosmetics Snow White storybook collection and are absolutely in love! Right now, the two pieces available are the Storybook Palette and the Vanity Mirror, but the collection will include 13 other pieces from face powders to lip balms and lipsticks.Bésame is known for their vintage-inspired cosmetics designed to bring back that old Hollywood glam. They’re goal is confidence, and to enable women to feel bold and beautiful in their own skin. But they also stand for accuracy and authenticity in recreating the beautiful past with long-lasting formulas that are wearable today. And because the Ink and Paint Department at the time was predominantly female, they honored their work by using an all-female team to design this collection. According to their website:
Through extensive and careful research, we have painstakingly hand selected and matched the colors from the original color palette [of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs] provided by Disney’s Ink and Paint Department to bring you a beautiful and authentic recreation of the colors from the classic 1937 film.
See, what you may or may not know about Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, is that the women in the Ink and Paint department back in 1937 applied real blush to the cells to get Snow’s rosy cheeks just right. So, leave it to Bésame to bring her look to life 80 years later. Pretty cool, right?
Plus, look at the book. It’s JUST. SO. PRETTY.
Needless to say, we’re excited about this one, and can’t wait until the rest of the collection comes out this fall!
