Bésame Cosmetics Classic Beauty Duo

While we’re glad that hot rollers and garter belts are no longer in vogue, we can’t deny the appeal of vintage beauty. We’ve found the easiest way to channel the classic makeup from glam periods past is to stock up on this lipstick and cream rouge pair. Bésame founder and beauty historian Gabriela Hernandez painstakingly recreated her line worn by Hollywood’s leading ladies of a bygone era—think Jean Harlow, Vivien Leigh, and Marilyn Monroe. The Classic Color Lipstick in Besame Red is made with extradense, long-lasting pigments, and the gold-plated tubes come in luxe red velvet pouches. The versatile Crimson Cream Rouge, a lip and cheek cream, takes its influences from the ’30s with a red and gold floral tin.

Lovely set, just not for me
Purchased

I was so excited to get this set, because I love red lipsticks and rouges. The containers and packaging are beautiful and very old Hollywood glamorous. However the lipstick itself is more of a blue red that turns into a deep pink on me. This is a common problem with me, so it's not really the fault of the packaging although any buying this has to understand those with cool coloring will love it. Those with warm coloring, not so much.

I ended up giving it to my mom and it looks great with her white hair, green eyes and pale winter coloring.

Channeling Liz Taylor

I was looking for something in a red lipstick and rouge that was really classic, yet quality. I am very impressed and satisfied with this product the lipstick does not stain your teeth even without having to put your finger in your mouth traditionally to get access off and a portion of your lips. The lipstick stays on for hours without feathering are becoming cracked or dry at all.

Love Besame!
Purchased

Besame red is my new favorite day time red. I wear it almost everyday. Goes on smooth, long lasting and doesn't dry my lips out. Love that it is a matte lipstick. The crimson cream rouge doesn't work for me as a rouge, but I love it on my lips. It gives a semi sheer red when a bold red lip isn't appropriate.

get the blush solo
Purchased

I bought this -- but the lipstick is too much, the color is too bright.... The blush is nice in that you can use a little and it gives a natural flush. Great in photos!

Best siren red lipstick I have found w /bonus blush
Purchased

This was not in my sample box,but I was intrigued by it when I saw it offered by Birchbox. I am very pleased with the deep velvety red & creaminess of the lipstick. The rouge or blush matches & goes on smoothly & last all day. The lipstick & rouge are offered as a pair in beautiful vintage packaging. It reminded me of the lipstick & "rouge" my Mom wore. But the formula is definitely not vintage. You will be very pleased with this pair.

Beautiful packaging and product
Purchased

The red lipstick is a beautiful shade that is complimentary to my skin tone. The cheek rouge is easy to blend and gives a beautiful flushed look to any skin tone. I love this duo!

Quality product
Purchased

This duo of cream rouge and lipstick is a real winner. Color, consistency, and value outstanding. Looks cute in vintage packaging, but modern product formulation makes application easy. Highly recommend.
