"Life. Changing:" Real Customer Stories About Our Cashmere Powder Compacts

Flawless. Light. Effortlessly beautiful. 

Our Cashmere Compact is perfect for when you want a touch of powder to reduce shine or if you’d like a full face of light coverage. The finely milled powder helps blur lines, pores, and redness and feels like you’re wearing nothing at all! 

Fervent fans have written many kind words about their favorite powder. Here are some of our favorite customer stories inspired by Cashmere Powder.

For Flawless Coverage of Fine Lines and Pores

We all have fine lines and pores, but if you’re in the mood for a flawless finish, Cashmere Powder can help. Here’s what Kelcie B. said about Medium Powder:

Hands down this is my favorite powder. This was my second purchase of a compact from Bésame and won’t be my last! It provides an almost velvet finish to your skin similar to an airbrush effect. This is great for me, because it minimizes the appearance of my enlarged pores without being cakey. 

I haven't used powder foundation since I turned 30. But, I was in a hurry one day and dusted this with a light hand all over - using the shade Medium for the center. I didn't have time for my usual creme foundation and I needed coverage that day. I ran out the door in a hurry and WOW. Not only did this provide excellent coverage with a small amount of product, it did not settle in my fine lines, irritate my dry skin or any of the other problems I now experience when using powder foundation. It lasted all day. It looked fantastic. It didn't feel dry or look dry or settle into lines. I could not believe how good this looks and how it blurred all my imperfections in a light natural feeling way. I swear it makes me look younger !!! - Cathleen

For Sensitive Skin

When you have sensitive skin, a heavy layer of foundation can irritate or exacerbate any issues. Luckily, many customers find the Cashmere Powder is just the coverage they need without any aggravating ingredients. Here’s what Samantha R. had to say:

This is hands down the best foundation I have ever used. It goes on so smoothly, gives great coverage, and a little goes a long way. I've been using this foundation for 3 months now, and I've seen an improvement in my skin's complexion and have not had a single foundation-related breakout since I began using it. Highly recommend it times a million! 

For the Fairest of Them All

When your skin is very fair, it can be hard to find a color light enough for your skin. Fortunately, our Porcelain powder is perfect for everyone on the lightest end of the spectrum. Here’s what some of our customers had to say about our Porcelain compact:

Pale Princesses Rejoice! I bought this primarily because of the gorgeous compact, but I didn't expect to be head-over-heels in love with the powder inside (surprise- I AM!). It has way more pigmentation than expected. I'd say on it's own it can give light to medium coverage, so it's not just a finishing/setting powder! Also, I didn't expect the shade to be light enough for me - I'm ALWAYS lighter than the palest foundations that most makeup companies offer. In MAC terms I'm about an NC10 or NC15. Shockingly and amazingly, THIS POWDER MATCHED ME PERFECTLY! It truly is a PORCELAIN shade, unlike what so many other companies call "porcelain." Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU Bésame for making a shade that truly can match us pale princesses! - Brit

I'm a pretty pale girl. Foundations, concealers, and powders that are easily attainable are always a couple shades too dark for me OR make my skin look chalk-y and makes me look ill. I now have one cashmere compact in my makeup bag and a back-up one so I'm not caught without it when my current compact runs out. Slight coverage, the perfect color, and leaves a lovely smooth texture on my skin - Alyssa J.

Pressed powders and I do not have the best of luck. Finding one within my budget that works with my very pale "There's no sun in Scotland" skin tone is usually a nightmare and has been since high school.  Not to mention my sensitive skin and very sensitive sense smell. 
I was a bit nervous in ordering this, but this compact did exactly what I needed it to!  
It keeps me from being overly shiny, doesn't irritate my skin, doesn't smell funny and covers up some serious Narcoleptic dark circles. The fact that it's from a cruelty free, woman owned, Made In America company is just the cherry on top! I would buy it again in a heartbeat! - Hannah H

For the “No Makeup” Look

Sometimes, you want a bit of coverage without feeling like you’re caking your face in makeup. Krystal said:

My entire life, I've struggled with the redness in my face, but still wanting to show off my freckles. Any other powder or foundation I've tried has left me flat. It works great for the redness, but would also cover my freckles and I felt "fake.”
In walks THIS BEAUTIFUL BEING, and oh my god. Life. Changing. I've been using it for just a few days, but I am in love. Its light enough to leave my natural look, but also strong enough to cover the redness and give me that skin that I have been coveting my entire life! 


This powder is so soft and light and melts right into my skin! It doesn’t look like I’m wearing makeup at all, let alone a powder! It blurs all of The discoloration and helps me feel more and more confident! - Ashton G

Honestly, I was nervous. I have dry skin so I don't usually go for matte finishes, but since this was said to give the "complexion a luminous, soft-focus radiance" I thought I'd give it a try. Also, I'm a medium/dark shade :-/ This powder did not disappoint. I LOVE the look and feel of it. Completely blends in with my skin and maintains the warmth that I like. - Lauren

For Multiple Uses

Though it looks gorgeous all over your face, this compact can be used for contour, highlight, and even eyeshadow. Here’s what Rebecca has to say about the Medium Cashmere Powder:

I actually use this as an eyeshadow and eyeliner with a damp brush. I also use it with a fluffy brush for contouring. It has a slight reddish undertone so it’s great as a brow powder for redheads.
