      Hi, always great to look at grand-ma stuff :-)
      I think you have a rouge box, rouge for lips to apply with a brush from the shine and prints in the make-up :-)

      hello, kyratango,
      thank you for your comment i wasn’t sure if it was rouge or even vintage shoe polish as it has a very odd plasticky smell to it, it would of been applied with a brush that would explain the makes in the make up, :) have a great day .
