Rouge Bunny Rouge – For love of roses – Original Skin blush swatches
Rouge Bunny Rouge claims to be targeting the “true seekers of beauty”
In an era when most brands are concerned with following the trend, we provide something quite different; a thoughtfully balanced palette of colours, for true seekers of beauty, who choose beauty over brand name or fad.
I am looking for a blush that enhances my cheeks, that doesn’t shout blush, with a matte but not powdery finish and with Rouge Bunny Rouge I am in the right place.
I actually find the packaging practical and trendy but for the price tag it could be a little bit more luxurious… or it could contain a bit more product !
The case is 1cm high, 5.5cm diameter with a big mirror inside, it contains 3.5g of product for 25 Gbp (I think, because I got mine without VAT so it reduces the price to Gbp 20.83). An European version of a Chanel blush is 4g and costs 31Gbp, now you know that Rouge Bunny Rouge is a very expensive brand indeed !
I am sad but also lucky they don’t have more shades available because I would be tempted to buy them all ! Today I have all their shades from their Original Skin blush range.
I stick white labels with the names on the side because of the way I store them, it helps me to pick them up more easily.
Rouge Bunny Rouge started in Russia in 2006 and even if I find their prices too high, I find most of their products to be extremely good and worth the price tag.
I like the RBR description, it really makes you want to have them
Original Skin Blush blends with a sheer, silky touch for a naturally luminous glow. A medley of active ingredients, including Uhaloa from Hawaii, also known as Velvet-leaf and modern technologies impart a long term brightening effect. Indian Gooseberry Fruit Extract stands guard against free radicals. Sheer pearls amplify the creamy soft touch and ensure a limpid glow. Innovative powders entwine with your skin to preserve perfection all day long.
Result is your skin but better; you’ll wonder how you blushed before…
Their shades :
- Delicata : Nude beige-rose with the barest hint of peach for an illuminated natural glow – Excellent to accentuate your cheekbones creating a 3D-effect depth
- Florita : Most natural, rich raspberry red with an illuminating radiance – It glides onto the skin imparting a warm rosy glow and is best suited for medium or olive skin tones
- Starina : Palest coral with an illuminating radiance – Great for any pale complexion
- Gracilis : Medium rose with a hint of mauve, for a natural glow – Best suited to pale, cool complexions
- Orpheline : Medium, warm strawberry with an illuminating radiance – Best on medium warm skin tones
- Habanera : Medium, sun-warmed terracotta with a hint of rose – Great for any medium complexion
I could not wish for a better powder blush finish, feels wonderful on the skin, pure silk. My favorite is Orpheline, not a surprise since this one is a staple and its shade and texture deserve all the raves.
Delicata is too light for me, it disappears on my NW20-25 skin, I use it when I want to tone down some other cream blushes, or if I want a no-blush blush, just evens out the skin.
Florita is the darkest of them all, very long lasting.
Starina I tend to use it more like a highlighter than a blush, this one seems to be the more “glowy” of all their range.
Gracilis, this is the kind of cheek colors that I don’t usually like to wear, but the silky finish of this blush makes it a gorgeous cheek color, it blends on the skin without leaving an artificial powder finish. I use it when I do grey smokey eyes and with Tom Ford Pink Dusk lipstick, the combination is perfect, balanced, flawless.
Orpheline, my favorite… so unique, so bright and a must-have. Of course the finish is not that bright if you use it sparingly…
Habanera, the swatch on the picture is very heavy, it doesn’t show up as dark on the cheeks. I was afraid it would be too orange but it’s not at all, I use it to contour as well.
Florita, Orpheline and Habanera are the darkest and therefore the more long lasting. I just love them all, I can use all the shades and the matte, but still non-powdery glowy finish, makes them appropriate for any age, any occasion.
The only problem with these, is their price. I got most of them in Zuneta.com when they had the 20% reduction at the beginning of this year, that 20% off plus the VAT off, it gave me a better deal…
Just in case you are interested… at this moment I am using a Zuneta coupon ZBEAUTYBIBLE until recently it was working and giving me 10% reduction…
