UPDATE (July 22, 2020 at 1:20 p.m.): People love Lucy so much that the Besamé Cosmetics Lucille Ball collection sold out entirely within 12 hours of its launch, according to the brand. Thanks to the insanely high demand, Besamé Cosmetics will restock both limited-edition lipsticks shades, $24, sometime in September.
You can pre-order either lipstick on the brand's website right now — and you don't want to hesitate to do so. "Already, hundreds of orders have come in to pre-order these colors inspired by classic Lucy looks," a representative from Besamé revealed to Allure.

When I say the name Lucille Ball, a very specific image probably enters your mind: ginger ringlets, pale complexion, big lashes, and bright red lips. This month, the iconic actress's signature look will be translated to a retro makeup collection by — you guessed it — Besamé Cosmetics. On June 25, you can snag up to seven products the brand says are exact matches to the makeup Ball wore back in her day.
The collection features an eye shadow palette, two lipsticks, a pressed powder compact, and a pencil set for the eyes and lips. The eye shadow palette, Club Babalu, contains eight matte shades in neutral hues plus pink, peach, and blue colors.
Meanwhile, the two cream lipsticks — Love That Readhead and What a Peach — emulate two very popular lipstick shades from decades past. The former is a classic red akin to Ball's signature shade and the other is a coral-toned peach. As always, they're encased in rounded gold bullets, but this time they're etched with an original drawing of Ball.
Similar to the lipsticks, Lucy's Face Powder Compact is encased in gold with an etching of Ball. Inside you'll find a mattifying pressed powder you can use to set your makeup and blot oil throughout the day or night. Lastly, Lucy's Pencil Set contains two eyeliner pencils (a brown for the lash line and a white for the waterline) and a bright red lip pencil to match Love That Redhead.
Those who purchase the collection as a bundle (which costs $150) will be gifted two additional and exclusive products: an I Love Lucy tote bag and a set of false lashes the brand says "are based on the exact size, shape, and color that Lucille Ball wore."
This won't be the first collection of its kind, by the way. The Lucille Ball collection is just the first in what Besamé calls its Iconic Women Series. The brand has yet to reveal who will inspire the remainder of those products, but when it does, we'll keep you in the loop (otherwise we'll have some 'splaining to do).
The Besamé Cosmetics Lucille Ball Collection is available on June 25 from besamecosmetics.com.
