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… 😉
