Bésame Cosmetics Crimson Cream Rouge

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.

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

Once again, Birchbox did not disappoint! A little goes a really long way! I have a feeling that this is going to last me for a very long time! Love it!

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!

Works on light and dark skin!
Purchased

VERY pigmented, a little goes a long way. This tin will last forever. Dab two or three small dots on the cheek bone and blend well for great cheek color, or apply to lips for full color. I have used this on olive colored skin and on dark skin and it looks beautiful on both!

Great Color, hard to use
Purchased

I really like the color of this product. I have always had a difficult time finding a shade that is natural looking and I think this one is great and that will flatter almost every complexion/skin tone that exists. However, the main drawback for me is that I find it very hard to blend. I have oily skin so I can only imagine that it would be even more difficult on drier skin. I'll probably look at other options before purchasing again.

If you're even "just thinking about it," buy it.
Purchased

You won't be disappointed. I bought this blindly, having never sampled before and only having read the reviews. I love it. It's definitely one of those hues that looks good with any skin tone. I haven't tried it as a blush, but this is my new favorite go-to when I want some red lips. And the tin is so cute and chic!

I'm a sucker for vintage packaging, and the staying power of this cream blush is amazing! Be careful to use a light hand and blend well though, because it's very pigmented. I wish they'd come out with more shades (besides apricot)!

Gorgeous color! Like the packaging, a little hard to close but not a big a deal. A little goes a long way!
