SPRINGFIELD, Va. (May 25, 2023) – Beginning today, and running through the Fourth of July (as supplies last), Bésame Cosmetics will support military families nationwide with the sale of its Victory Red Lipstick & Nail Polish Set. For $39, customers can purchase the Victory Red Lipstick, the limited-edition Victory Red Nail Polish in addition to a Victory Red commemorative pin with $5 of each purchase benefiting Hope For The Warriors.
For over 16 years, the national nonprofit has been serving the post-9/11 military community; including, service members, veterans, military families, caregivers, and families of the fallen across the country in all branches of service.
“Bésame is proud to support our veterans and thank all who have served for our country on this Memorial Day by donating proceeds from the sale of our Victory Red Lipstick & Nail Polish Set to Hope For The Warriors,” said Gabriela Hernandez founder of Bésame Cosmetics. “We appreciate Hope For The Warriors’ valuable work providing assistance to service members and their families.
“Our 2023 set features our iconic Victory Red Lipstick, plus the return of our limited-edition Victory Red Nail Polish as well as one of our Victory Red commemorative pins. The Victory pin is a replica of a pin made during WWII that was worn in support of the troops. It has wings of hope and the letter V in red signifying Victory for the allies,” added Hernandez.
Bésame researched and created a replica of the same, red lipstick shade from 1941, which was originally commissioned for women to wear as part of their uniform and named this shade for the Allied Victory in World War II.
“As a longtime supporter of Hope For The Warriors, we’re excited to work with Bésame Cosmetics again to support the military families that we serve,” shared Robin Kelleher, co-founder and CEO of Hope For The Warriors. “This is a great time to stock up on some new lipstick and nail polish, while supporting service members, veterans and their families.”
Since 2016, Bésame Cosmetics has contributed over $10,000 to Hope For The Warriors and its programs.
