We got make-up!

I've finally pursuaded the boys to add some glamour to the HepCat Store and stock some make-up. But not just any old brand, it's 1940's cosmetics from Bésame Cosmetics.

We've got the perfect matte red lipsticks, lip gloss, and some wicked eyeshadows. Shimmer Beige is my favorite and a great base eye shadow.
