Bésame Cosmetics Crimson Cream Rouge

Bésame Cosmetics is one of my favorites beauty products that I totally love and can't leave home without! Lately these products have become famous thanks to shows like Pan-Am and the movie The Artist. But the main reason why these products are sought is because of it's founder Gabriela Hernandez who has brought back classic beauty makeup for the glamours woman of today.

Recently Bésame Cosmetics was awarded a Cosmetic Innovators 2012 City Award for their vintage inspired Crimson Cream Rouge!

What is special about this little rouge? Well lets find out and see.

  • Crimson Cream Rouge is a concentrated, long-lasting color cream modeled after the rouges from the romantic 1930's era that doubled as a cosmetic for use on the cheeks and lips.
  • Applied to the cheeks with a fingertip, it goes on as a silky, creamy color to create a natural, rosy look. Add a little more for a bolder, more enhanced look.
  • Never heavy or moist after application, it blends into the skin seamlessly. 
  • Applied to the lips with a lipstick brush or the fingertip, lips are stained to a semi-matte finish for a pop of color.
  •  The bright crimson hue has been carefully developed to be complementary with all skin tones. 
  • Crimson Cream Rouge is formulated with the finest ingredients: olive, grape seed and jojoba oils for moisture and antioxidant properties, vitamin E, kaolin clay, and a natural cherry flavor. You can be rest assured that Crimson Cream Rouge provides a healthy and fresh-faced look while being beneficial to one’s complexion. 
  • Beautifully designed to look like a reproduction of the rouge containers from the 30s, the embossed tin with Bésame’s signature chrysanthemums is made from 100% recyclable materials.

Vidal Sassoon / The Man Behind The Scissors

Vidal Sassoon was more than just a hairdresser, he was an artist, a visionary, a craftsman who "changed the world with a pair of scissors."

Vidal did not have an easy childhood. He spent seven years with his younger brother at a London orphanage. His father had left his family when he was three years old and and due to poverty his mother could not afford to care for him.

One day his mother dreamed of her son being in a barbershop, she apprenticed him to a local barber. And that was when Vidal's hairdressing career started.

He develop two classic geometric Bauhaus-inspired hairdos of the 1960s, the bob and the shorter five-point cut. These hairstyles liberated generations of women from the tyranny of the salon with his "wash and wear" philosophy that revolutionized a world wide trend.

Although he became very famous Vidal never forgot where he came from. He took time to help people in need through his many philanthropic causes.

I didn't know much about his life and work until I saw his movie documentary. Sometimes we may have misconceptions of people because they are famous, have money or look or act in a certain way. I learned time and again to first find out what a person is really like and not to judge a book by it's cover.

This guy had a big zest for life and for people. He was truly an inspiration for us all!
