I'm normally fair-toned when it comes to pressed powders, so I ordered Porcelain, which unfortunately is far too pale for me. Coverage is very good though - I feel I would have really liked this powder had I found the right colour for me. Unfortunately, it's too expensive to keep experimenting until I find the right shade, so will be giving this one a miss.

I ordered the Besame "Signature Compact" in the shade Porcelain. The shade is a good match for my very fair skin. The compact is beautiful! You really feel like you've gone back in time. I can totally picture Betty Draper whipping this out of her handbag. It is small, but it's a vintage design, based on the size compacts used to be. I think its absolutely adorable …Read more

Mixed feelings. I love all things vintage, and this compact is a replica of what a lot of high quality compacts looked like in the 1940s. With that said, the formula is much like products from that era as well. Granted, this is paraben free, and shouldn't break you out, but it is also very heavy, has limited color choice and is tricky to apply since the compact is so small. I …Read more

This is a fantastic touch up powder, with very elegant packaging and a size that's perfect for my small bag. Though the amount you receive is very modest, a little big goes a long way and a few swipes of the little applicator last for hours. I have Light, which is a good match for my skin. Recommended.

I love this powder. It's finely milled, doesn't settle in pores, and gives skin a finished look without appearing made up. I own Light but what I really need is Porcelain. Light is a hint too yellow for my fair, cool-neutral skin (NW15). .


As for the tiny compact (not much bigger than a silver dollar), tiny is the point. These are replicas, and I love that the blush …

I ordered this and some other Besame products because of the vintage look. I was going to display them on an antique art deco vanity I have with some other vintage things. That said, I was very disappointed when I actually received the products because they don't look as vintage as they did in the website's photos. The blush is almost impossible to open, I can already tell the …Read more

Small size and very easy to crumble. I'm forever taking some heavy object and pressing it again when I take it out on the town and bang it about..

However, it is a lovely powder--very sheer yet good for touch-ups when applied lightly-- I have the medium for redness around my nose although I am generally fair and press on with my finger or puff.. Does not emphasize pores when …

Okay....see the tiny photo of this compact in the upper right hand corner of this page....that's about how big this compact really is. So if you were cursed with big mitts, you'll find it pretty darned teeny for the price. It's an excellent powder but fer gawds sake the thing is as big as a Canadian loonie!!!!!

Wow, this is one fantastic powder! It is so finely milled that it does not look the slightest bit powdery or heavy or cakey. In fact, you can't detect it at all on your skin, except that the parts that were powdered just look *perfect*. Definitely HG for me!

I absolutely love this compact, I miss the glamour and class from the 1920-1940's. I must have been born into the wrong era.
I carry this with me daily for touch ups and it gives me the perfect finish. I hope with all the new products Besame is currently working on that their new foundation compact will exceed all my expectations.
