So excited to add the Mickey Mouse Lipstick Duo to my collection. This collection is SOLD OUT.
In celebration of the 90th Anniversary of Mickey Mouse, Besame Cosmetics has collaborated with Disney to specially create two brand new lipstick shades. Encased in painted metal decorated with artwork pulled from classic Mickey animation from the 1930s.
This limited edition set includes two brand new lipstick shades, Mickey Red and Ink and Paint. The two lipsticks are packaged in a collectable box with a gold plated, plastic compact dual mirror decorated with Mickey's likeness. One mirror has a 2x magnification for close-ups, while the other provides a standard image.
M29 Mickey Mouse Red
A classic cool-toned red, with a strawberry pink undertone. Our classic cream formula. Matched directly from the red of Mickey's trousers and shoes. In celebration of the 90th Anniversary of Mickey Mouse, Besame Cosmetics has collaborated with Disney to specially create two brand new lipstick shades.

M250 Ink and Paint
A sheer, blackberry lipstick with a berry flavor. Ink and Paint goes on black and adjusts to your personal pH to give you your own signature deep berry shade! Inspired by the introduction of Mickey Mouse in the original black and white animation.
I'm in love with this collection. I'm a huge Mickey Mouse fan and this set is so beautifully done. Classic, cool and creative just like Mickey.
Peggy Carter was first introduced on screen in Captain America: the First Avenger. The time was 1943. Popular cosmetic brands were Max Factor and Revlon. Here are some advertisements of that era.
By 1929 Elizabeth Arden had 150 stores. Victory Red was a popular color of the 1940s. Here are two colors Peggy would have also used: 2 Red Door Red and 33 Wildberry.
Estee Lauder officially launched her brand of cosmetics in 1946. The colors Peggy would have used (above) are 220 Shock & Awe and 300 Hot Streak.
Makeup wasn't heavily used during the war, especially with military personnel. Peggy would have used a soft gray/brown shadow, mascara, a light sheer pink blush and vivid red lipstick. Women were proud to wear red lipstick to show their femininity during the war. And with colors like Victory Red, one can see why. Nails would have been a bold red color.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
