The Crimson Cream Rouge is perfect for a rosy glow and the color is very pigmented. This rouge can be applied with fingers, sponge or brush and it can also be used as a lip stain with lip gloss. I love this stuff.

I also bought the rouge in apricot and whenever I wear it, I'm asked if I have been out in the sun. I'm not sure if that's a compliment or not as I am very …

This stuff is pigmented! Holy moly, all you need is a tiny amount and you've got lovely rosy cheeks. It can also be used as a lip stain. With the amount of product you get, I see this lasting a very long time. The packaging is adorable red and gold tin, but I'm telling you it SUCKS to open. The cap suctions on and takes a session of twisting, pulling, and cursing to remove. Other than …Read more

I've used powder blush ever since I started wearing makeup - my skin was very oily when I was a teenager, and I considered cream and liquid rouge to be something old ladies used. I never gave it a second thought. Well, I wish I'd had this all along. It's not greasy or pore clogging at all, and it's easy to control and get exactly the way I want it, whether that's a very …Read more

Wish I had found this sooner! This cream rouge can be used on both lips and cheeks and gives an instant healthy, vintage looking flush. A little goes a long way so the pan will last forever. The color is sort of a pinky/red on me - not too much orange or too much blue and neutral enough to be worn by most skin tones. The only down sides are at $22 USD it is somewhat expensive (though the long …Read more

The Besame packaging is so beautiful. You really feel like you've gone back in time. The lovely Art Deco tin of rouge looks spectacular on your vanity and makes you feel like Velma Kelly or Roxie Hart. I do agree with some of the other reviewers that the round tin is somewhat tricky to open and close which is the only downside of the packaging.

The rouge itself is VERY pigmented …

Okay, everything fashionfreak678 (review below me) said - yep, yep, yep, agree with everything, so I'll keep this semi-short. A little goes a very long way with this pinky-strawberry red cheek/ lip creme. From my own experience (dry/ sensitive skin), moisturize first, let moisturizer soak in throughly, maybe blot to absorb any excess moisturizer and then use your fingers to gently tap …Read more

PROS: highly pigmented, multitasking, long-lasting
CONS: packaging

One of my favorite hobbies is watching Old Hollywood films. The actresses of that era, especially Barbara Stanwyck, Ginger Rogers, Myrna Loy, Claudette Colbert, Jean Harlow, Katharine Hepburn, and of course Audrey and Marilyn as well as Lucille Ball, have been huge inspirations for my style, both fashion and …

I love Makeupalley. I have been an active member here since around 2001, and, for two big reasons, I would be very different if I didn't have Makeupalley. Reason number one: I wouldn't smell as good, and I'd probably be wilting all wildlife within a 5 mile radius while wafting bottles of Camp Beverly Hills I stored in my freezer for 30 years. Reason number two: I definitely …Read more

I had purchased this about a year ago and have barely made a dent in my tin. It is such a beautiful color on cheeks and lips. I have never reacted to it (extremely oily and acne) and it lasts all day. I do not notice a slight scent to it. My only complaint is you have to gently twist the cap back onto the metal base-do not push straight down. All in all I love Besame products.

I'm borderline obsessed with all things vintage & glamour, so naturally I love Besame cosmetics. The packaging is gorgeous, but more importantly, the products do not fail to deliver. This rouge is no exception. $22 gets you a fairly large vintage-styled metal tin of lightly cherry scented red cream rouge. I will say that the tin can be a little persnickety to open. The rouge itself is a …Read more
