I fell in love with Besame due to the vintage-style packaging. The compacts are gold metal with a lovely red floral design, and while they are small in comparison to modern products, they are reproduction of vintage-sized products. I own several original 1930s and 1940s rouge tins, and they are the same size as this Besame. Sun-kissed is a nice peachy bronze without shimmer. I am an NW15 freckled redhead, and I use it as a blush and find that it adds just enough color and goes perfectly with a red lip. Pigmentation is impressive. My only complaints are that I agree with others - the packaging is very difficult to open. Also, the products tend to crumble, which is unfortunate. I would not recommend carrying it in a purse for this reason. For those 2 reasons, I am removing 1 lippie. Otherwise I do love this and would definitely repurchase.

My friend introduced me to this blush and I am IN LOVE! It is not a colour you would ever think about buying. On, it is the most perfect sunkissed blush/light bronzer. I use this every day for the perfect amount of colour without looking phoney.

One of my faves blush out there. It is so blendable and matches my skin tone perfectly. My best friend who is Asian loves this shade on her too. It is so hard to find a blush that is so easy to work with and color stays true all day.

This is a very pretty blush that is more like a bronzer. It really does give you a sun kissed look. It's perfect for days when you don't want to look to made up. I do have to blend it or it looks strange. I really love the 30s style compact it's pretty & tiny. The blush is about the size of an eyeshadow.

I was fortunate to be introduced to this line of cosmetics (Thx MUA!), and happy to have found sunkissed. IMO it is a very nice nude peach. The pigmentation is awesome, and the texture is extremely soft making it "a day at the beach" to apply. Now the serious cons-On sale, had I seen it in person, the blush was overpriced. It's the tiniest thing I've ever seen. It's a little hard to handle since it is so small, and the closure isn't the easiest, so too much fidgeting and splat-Bye Bye blushy :( It is definitely a top quality item therefore I would repurchase.... on sale for sure. As mentioned by numerous reviewers, aesthetically it is divine to showcase on a vanity. For reference I'm an NC 40-42, Hyper real 300, LORAC SMS 5.

When not on sale, Besame is the biggest rip off going. Sure people say "Oh it's the metal packaging that makes it cost so much, and it's super pigmented!" but I'm not going to be wearing the packaging, and I'm not wowed by the pigmentation either.
These compacts are made for tinkerbell sized people. I can barely see a whole eye when I look in the mirror on this because it's so small. The tiny little applicator is a waste of time too.
These are *very* hard to open too, and if I did my nails I'm sure they'd be messed up from trying. I have to leave mine open in my blush drawer.
That being said, Sun Kissed looks like an orangey bronzer in the pan. It shows up as such on my skin too. It's easily blended, but very hard to get out of the tiny compact with my average human sized 187 brush. The compact is pretty, but not pretty enough to make up for all the faults.

This is quickly becoming one of my favorite blushes, and I have to say I'm really surprised because it didn't look like much in the pan.
In fact, I looked at it originally and said to myself, well, THIS is never gonna show up. But I was surprised, it really does. It is ultra-pigmented, and a perfect shade of nude-peach that I've really not found elsewhere. Applied with a slightly heavier hand, it also works for contouring on my NC25 skin.
The tiny size can be offputting but it is actually plenty big enough to swirl a blush brush in. And the red-accented, mirrored goldtone compact is truly lovely. I'm told that these are not really meant to be carried in a purse (they're soft and shatter easily) which is a shame, but they're pretty enough to leave out on a vanity as well.

I got this in a swap and forgot about it for about a year. Then I tried it on and vavoom! Sexy nude blush, perfect with red lips! It's a gorgeous matte and it just lights up my face, which is weird because I thought I couldn't wear nudes (orange-potential). This never turns orange on me and just stays true to color. It's like the color of honey. Lurve.

I received Besame Boudoir Rouge in Sun Kissed with my Warm Trio GWP. The compact is the size of a silver dollar, but you get 3g of finely milled product and the pigmentation is awesome. The metal compact is precious! Comes with a tiny puff that's basically just for show. Sun Kissed is matte, peachy and adds a subtle definition to my cheeks - not pink like Cargo's The Big Easy or as brown-tinged as NARS Amour. Goes beautiful with the Chocolate Kiss lipstick in the Warm Trio set. I am a MAC C3 for reference.

I complete agree with the reviewer below who was disappointed in this blush. I don't see peach at all, but rather a ubiquitous matte brownish pink. I don't think it flatters my PPP (neutral/pink undertones) at all. The packaging is pretty, but I find it really hard to open, especially having long fingernails.

my skin is cool toned but I have warm freckles, which sometimes makes it hard to find a good subtle blush to wear with red lipstick. I know that a lot of people struggle to find a blush that is both, subdued enough not to clash with their lipstick and yet intense enough to be noticeable. I think sunkissed is ideal. It is a truly neutral shade, it is not really warm but not cool either but it has a *hint* of red in it. Think 85% cool light brown with 10% peach and 5% red. It goes with virtually any true red I have tried, warm or cool. It does NOT work with berry shades or pink lipstick. It seems to me that this blush was made with red lippies in mind, which wouldn't surprise me, given Besame's reputation. I could also see how this could be used as a bronzer. As far as the product size is concerned, don't be fooled by it. I pat the littley powder puff on the product and that is all I need for BOTH cheeks. Little goes SUCH a long way. Besame blushes are close to being pure pigment minus a lot of the usual fillers. This is what the product looks like in the pot
and this is the Besame founder wearing that color

I have to tell you first that I am in love with most of Besames products, but this one is not my favorite... The review below sorta says it all.. This is a nice color, but not that unusual. More brown than my usual peach, but doesn't stand out. I do love the little compact, and the consistency is great! But alas, the color is not one that I reach for all that often. For reference, I am fair skinned with dark hair. I do love the crimson and sweet pink though!!!
update: I purchased this blush in a 3 piece kit, which came with chocolate kiss lippie, and it was just too much brown. I wore it last night with my red velvet and I have to say that it's lovely with this. I would probably repurchase, if for no other reason than to wear with the reds I have from Besame. plus, the compact is just so stinkin cute!

It's a very pretty color, but not one that you couldn't duplicate for much cheaper somewhere else. I have a Bourjois blush that I got for $13.50 in the color Tomette, which looks exactly the same as this on me. For reference, I'm NC35-NC40.

Warm peach that is more earthy and muted than most "peach" blushes, so it's a lot more natural-looking. The color is similar to Bobbi Brown's Tawny. What I like about the Besame is that it's so very finely milled, so you can put a very sheer wash of color on, or build the coverage without splotching or streaking. And the packaging is to die for.
For reference: NC100-NC15, Px Cream, BB Warm Ivory.

Very pretty matte peach color. No pink at all, just straight peach. Completely matte - no shimmer at all. Very natural, warm color that is true to it's name in that it does give one a natural "sun kissed" glow. Comes in a GORGEOUS vintage gold compact. Very pretty. I would purchase again. :)
