Birchbox Breakdown

If we could go back in time and catch a glimpse of Greta Garbo’s vanity table, we’re pretty sure we’d find a little pot of rouge like this one there. The versatile lip and cheek cream is making its rounds through Hollywood—in fact, it appeared in the Oscar-winning movie The Artist. Designed by Bésame founder and vintage beauty buff Gabriela Hernandez, it takes its influences from the ’30s with a red and gold floral tin.

Love everything about this rouge
Purchased

I was drawn to the vintage feel of this rogue and went out on a whim and bought it. I am so glad that I did.
It comes packaged in a vintage style tin, which is precious sitting out on your vanity, btw. It is slightly difficult to open and close though, but the product itself is worth the struggle.
It can be worn as a lip or cheek product and you need VERY little. It's super pigmented and this pot will last you a lifetime. It is long lasting and you will not need to reapply.
Once you're done with the product, this will be a cute keepsake.

Like it but the container is terrible
Purchased

I love the design and the vintage feel of the rouge. It's something my grandmother would have used. However, I hate the container. While the design on the container is gorgeous, the container itself is next to impossible to close. I barely use it for that reason. It takes a while to match up the container lid so it'll go back on and you have to wiggling it back and forth forcefully to fully close it.

beautiful natural color
Purchased

Works best when i just brush my fingers over lightly and then dot over my cheeks- gives a very natural healthy flush that lasts all days- easy to overdue it though

Amazing!

This is the first Besame product that I purchased several years ago and I absolutely love it! I usually don't like to purchase beauty products sight unseen, but I had read so many great reviews on it that I figured it was a safe bet. Also, it is such a great deal because this stuff literally lasts FOREVER! I only use a little dab on my cheeks, blend, and done. At first I was a bit nervous of the bright color, but you can truly make it as subtle or intese as you want. I also really love the vintage look of the packaging and the fact that this make up brand is made by a woman, Gabriela Hernandez, who really knows her stuff and loves vintage beauty like I do. I have several other items from Besame and they are all fantastic!
