This is a nice product, if you want to brighten your complexion without resorting to shimmer highlighters or liquid luminzers. I was unsure if I wanted this, because I was concerned about flashback or ashy on my medium/deep golden complexion. I find it easy to apply and I love the travel size container it keeps the powder and puff separate, without the loose powder getting all over the place and the screw cap keeps it intact. What I don't like it the price point. Colored powders have been used for a long long time, especially in theater and TV.  Graftobian makes a huge container in French Vanilla for the same price point, its not as yellow but can be mixed w/ Graftobian Yellow powder and put in a little travel container and I can get the same result. The powder has a light vanilla scent to it which doesn't bother me but I prefer as little scent as possible in my makeup.

Just like with the lipstick from this line I was drawn to the packaging when it first came out so I got the color Vanilla. I am pretty pale and this color worked nicely on me and it made my face look fresh and bright throughout the day! It wasn’t too drying ok my skin either. I don’t use it a whole lot really more on special occasions but it is a great product with super cute packaging!

I got a variety pack with the vanilla brightening powder, the rose and the lavender. These did not work under the eyes for me. I do really like the vanilla as an all over setting powder. If I did repurchase one it would be that one. Also all of the powders smell like the title. It’s not strong but noticeable. If you are going to try one, go vanilla.

This product is actually pretty nice. It smells faintly of vanilla ( and let me tell you I HATE vanilla everything) but this doesn’t bother me at all. It applies nicely with a medium coverage. I didn’t give it four stars as it tends to lighten a natural tan a bit. Packaging is okay- they should consider adding a plastic layer to keep product from spilling into the cap in your makeup bag.

I got this in one of my Ipsy bags and I’m in love! It smells amazing and it leaves my face looking flawless all the time. It’s super easy to apply and it feels so luxurious when I put it on. I will definitely be buying again!!

I absolutely love Besame. I have always had a good products from this brand. This powder is wonderful. I have dry skin and it doesn’t cling at all. It’s best to use only a little so you don’t get the white out effect. It also smells great. The container is small so you have to be careful getting the product out. The tint has a yellow tint to it, which is great to help conceal my rosacea.

I love this powder! I bought the vanilla scented one. I read that it would help with redness but figured, eh it’s just a powder to put over foundation... what magic could it really do?
Well I’ll tell you! The slight yellow tone of this powder covers the redness of my skin perfectly. Color corrects, sets makeup, leaves skin soft and smells great!

Leaves my under eye area completely flawless and perfect. I use this on special occasions. Ladies if your skin is super dry i would pass on this. For everyone else it's incredible.

This power looks great with my skin tone and smells JUST like vanilla!! I like it quite a bit.. BUT I have dry skin all year around so powders aren’t my strong makeup statements

It’s such a nice powder and I love how many shades and finishes they have. I have a vanilla powder and it really smells like vanilla and has a yellow tint that’s brightening. It is rather small for 22 dollars though, but the packaging is beautiful.

Can this be used for baking? I've heard good things about it but no one has mentioned yet.

I really love the vintage approach to make up, but am not quite sure of all the applications for this. How are you ladies using it?
