Their second lipstick shade, titled Ink and Paint, is a more goth inspired lipstick for the Besame Cosmetics Mickey Mouse anniversary collection. Inside the lipstick container, the shade is pitch black — a nod to Mickey Mouse’s original black and white format — the sheer shade does in fact adjust with the wearer’s pH. After adjusting, the Ink and Paint shade will turn into a beautiful, deep berry shade with a berry flavor. Both Ink and Paint and Mickey Red are in retro painted metal cases with 1930s Mickey Mouse artwork. Each shade can be purchased for $24 USD each, or both can be bought together as a set with an adorable gold-plated plastic mirror compact for $50 USD.

Fans of the cosmetic brand know that the new Mickey Mouse additions are not Besame’s first Disney collection. Besame Cosmetics previously introduced both a Snow White and a Peter Pan Mermaid Lagoon collection. The Snow White and Peter Pan Mermaid Lagoon collections have a wider array of makeup products which are still available on the brand’s website. Besame Cosmetics also is not the first brand to come up with a Mickey Mouse anniversary makeup collection. Earlier this month Dose of Colors released their very own makeup collaboration that includes lipsticks, lip glosses, and a palette. The palette was such a hit that it sold out on the very first day.
