Ratched S01 Promo

In a promotional video for the tv show, Mildred Ratched (Sarah Paulson) puts on her make-up.

The lipstick she wears is Debutante sheer lip colour by Bèsame Cosmetics.

Her blush is one of the most famous products by the American brand – the cream rouge in a beautiful red tin decorated with golden chrysanthemums.

Claire (Samara Weaving) and Camille (Laura Harrier) are getting ready to audition for the part of Peg Entwistle, the British actress who committed suicide in 1932 by jumping from the “H” on the Hollywoodland sign. On their dressing tables Bésame Cosmetics products can be seen.

On the far right side of the table the golden cap of a lipstick is visible. Probably it’s American Beauty, the cool, berry-red shade with magenta undertones that Claire wears all through the show.

On the right side of Camille’s table there’s a red round box containing Bésame crimson cream rouge, that can be used on lips and cheeks.

While Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) is at the Cedars-Sinai hospital, George Cukor (John Rubinstein) pays her a visit. While they’re talking, she puts on some pink lipstick. It’s by Bésame Cosmetics: the shade looks like Dusty Rose.

There are other Bésame Cosmetics products by the washbasin in her hospital room – a powder compact, a cream rouge, a brightening face powder and a travel lip brush.

The kit of Joan Crawford’s make-up artist include several boxes of Max Factor Pan Stik creamy foundation.

The pressed powder on the left could be the famous Creme Puff by Max Factor, but no details are visible. Next to it there’s a gold tube of Bésame Cosmetics mascara and a beautiful gold vintage compact. The red round pot on the right is another Bésame product – the cream rouge in Crimson.

More Bésame products here: I’ve spotted other two round pots of cream rouge and a round pot of brightening powder. No details are shown, so it could be the Violet, the Vanilla or the Vanilla Rose one. On the table we see the pressed compact powder again, along with two gold bullet lipsticks (the one laying on the table is by Bésame) and a Bésame cake mascara with mirror compact.
