We are suckers for a good crossover collab, and the latest from Bésame Cosmetics doesn't disappoint. You may remember their Sleeping Beauty and Snow White collections with Disney, but they have now turned their attention to honoring memorable women across history with their “Iconic Women Series”.

They are kicking off the series with the legendary comedienne Lucille Ball, who broke barriers for women in the entertainment business. She was the star and producer of many sitcoms and specials, but is most known for her work on the American televison show I Love Lucy. While the show was shot in black and white, this makeup collection is all about the color. Scroll down to see what is included. 

Keep your nose powdered with the collectible, plastic Lucy's Face Powder Compact. Inside you'll find a super-refined pressed powder, offering sheer, matte coverage with a subtle glow. Founder Gabriela Hernandez commissioned the one-of-a-kind artwork of Lucy’s silhouette, accented by shimmering crystals for an extra dose of elegance.

The Club Babalu Shadow Palette offers an eclectic range of shades featured on I Love Lucy and worn by Lucille Ball herself in the 50s and 60s. Though the colors are classic, an assortment of neutrals with shimmering pops of color look great in any decade. The highly-pigmented shadows are soft, easy to blend, buildable, and long-lasting. The palette's cover features a playful sketch of Ricky Ricardo’s Club Babalu as featured in the show. 

  • Tropicana Taupe - matte taupe
  • Bandleader Brown - matte chocolate brown
  • Mertz Mauve - matte mauve
  • McGillicuddy Roots (Lucy's maiden name!) - matte cream
  • Salesman Blue - matte navy blue
  • Babablue - light shimmering blue
  • Ricardo Rose - matte light pink
  • Lucy's Lilac (her favorite color!) - matte lilac purple

Inspired by Lucy’s signature red lip, Lucy's "Love That Redhead" Lipstick is a warm, neutral-toned red that looks great on all skin tones, especially redheads! Enriched with plant-based squalane, aloe, and vitamin E, Love That Redhead feels great on the lips with a semi-matte look that stays on all day.

Lighter lip colors took center stage in the 60s and 70s. Later in her life, Lucy started wearing peachy shades that complemented her apricot-colored hair. Lucy's "What A Peach" Lipstick is a warm, coral-toned peach that looks great on all skin tones. Encased in Bésame’s classic gold tube. Pull off the cap to reveal the classic I Love Lucy heart logo.

The "Love, Lucy" collection completely sold out within the first 12 hours, but Bésame is restocking and you can get the individual lipsticks on BésameCosmetics.com.
