Rouge Bunny Rouge – For love of roses – Original Skin blush swatches

by Sonia G.

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… 😉

OK, I’m digging out my RBR blushes again. I think today is an Orpheline morning:))
I can only use Delicata as a contour color on my NC25 skin. On the cheeks it’s just too subtle.
I hope you’re going to love the RBR contour brush. It’s my very favourite for a soft cheek contour.

Sweet Make Up Temptations 13 August, 2012 - 12:37 pm

🙂 today it’s Gracilis – Pink dusk – Grey smokey 🙂 love that !!!!
I think I will love the RBR contour… it’s the one I wanted from the beginning but every time I wanted to order it, it was sold out.

Stacy 13 August, 2012 - 3:15 pm

Ok so now I had to run upstairs and see which RBR blush I have because I don’t give it enough love! I would have sworn it was Gracilis but it was Delicata which I promptly added to my TF Frantic Pink just because I had to. Not only do a value your posts Sonia for all of the incredible information but also it makes me remember some of my neglected lines!! I should have Gracilis and Orpheline! I think I will have to correct that over site!
Also I need to go to the Mac counter and get foundation matched so I can talk the MAC color talk!

🙂 sometimes I look inside my drawers and I find the urge to write about something I love 🙂 These are nice little gems !

Buggsiebee 13 August, 2012 - 3:49 pm

Grey / black eye shadow makes me look even older than I am:(
I can wear a warm, dark grey in the crease but then I need a bright ‘pick-me-up color ‘ on the rest of the lid.
The strange thing is that grey clothing & scarves suit my complaxion well?!

Stacy 14 August, 2012 - 2:35 pm

Sonia, I would love to see a post on your smokey eye! I too would love to be able to wear grey and black shadows but they make me look sooooo tired. Maybe you have a trick you could share or maybe it is just your gorgeous face 🙂

If that is the case Buggsiebee and I will have to stick to our grey and black clothes……

Sweet Make Up Temptations 14 August, 2012 - 3:19 pm

Maybe there is one trick, the grey or black I use are not entirely matte, neither shimmery, it also depends what shades of grey I use 😛
Sorry couldn’t help it… 😀 This is me not being funny …
I like to use Chantecaille or Suqqu greys most of the time.
In my next post I will mention them, there is one coming up where I will share my favorite eyeshadows, I hope that’ll help…
I also plan to take pictures of the grey or black smokey eye look but I need to first master my camera, which is not the case right now 🙁
This saturday I have a full day training with a photography teacher, I am not sure that this will help for the kind of pictures I want to take but anyway.. it’s a start … as soon as I am able to take decent pictures I will share that with you !

Nikoleta 13 August, 2012 - 10:05 pm

Gracilis is really nice, I love mauve blushes as they seem to neutralize redness on my cheeks.
Zuneta should make promotions more often and they don’t ship for free outside UK any more 🙁

Stacy 14 August, 2012 - 2:32 pm

Nikoleta, I didn’t realize they weren’t shipping for free outside the UK. Darn!

Buggsiebee 14 August, 2012 - 5:18 pm

Heeeeelllo Nikoleta:)))
Only one more sleep then it’s birthday cake for breakfast ;D

Stacy 14 August, 2012 - 4:29 pm

Yes Sonia, do share your shades of grey with us 😉 Seriously the favorite eyeshadows and a picture of your smokey eye will be wonderful! Your photography class should be so interesting!

Sweet Make Up Temptations 14 August, 2012 - 7:59 pm

I’ll let you know when I am ready 🙂

Buggsiebee 14 August, 2012 - 5:12 pm

Loving your new comment feed on the side;)

Sweet Make Up Temptations 14 August, 2012 - 8:01 pm

Thank you 🙂
I thought it could be a good idea…

Latoya 19 August, 2012 - 2:19 am

I haven’t been wearing Florita lately only because I’m a bit too tanned and it doesn’t show up as well as I’d like right now…also on my oilier skin is doesn’t last as long in this humid weather. But as soon as fall comes – I’m gonna be all over it! I love it so much 😀

Sweet Make Up Temptations 19 August, 2012 - 3:30 pm

I am sure this blush must look good on you ! you look impatient to get to fall 😉 by the way, I had such fun reading your Fall post !

I was just writing to let you know the RBR website has free shipping in Europe with any order 30 Euro or over, and anything over 75 Euro for international. i just ordered the time defying foundation along with a lip gloss and the creme blush stick! I received some samples from them in the mail with all the shades of foundation to try- I am very pleased with there customer service, the lady even sent me an email apologizing in the delay of the samples. On another note, have you tried any of there skincare? I’d love to try the anti ageing moisturizer, some day! 🙂

Sylvia 25 April, 2013 - 7:33 am

Thanks good news about the free shipping to Europe, Michelle. I was going to get some of my Russian colleagues to buy some RBR products for me when they go home on hols but this is much better!

Sylvia 25 April, 2013 - 8:18 am

I’ve just placed my first order at RBR, taking advantage of the last chance sale to pick up two kohl pencils (so practical for fast fast last minute touch-ups at work!) in colours I’d like to use but don’t have as well as the free shipping to Europe. By the way, the free offer is only til 5 May.

Gladys L. 25 April, 2013 - 11:29 am

It’s super nice that they give non-VAT price for international customer.

Michelle 25 April, 2013 - 12:44 pm

YEAH!!!! My wish list is long for RBR and I have been wanting to order from them directly as they usually have a special for a free gloss or something plus they send samples. but, 20 euros for shipping I cringe so had to take advantage of this. Have any of you tried any of there colognes? they sure look and sound beautiful. I tried a sample of the makeup melt and enjoyed it- and the moisturizer is high on my must haves. Now, to get my hands on some Shu , Suqqu, and RMK products! :O

Stacy 25 April, 2013 - 2:00 pm

Hi Michelle! I recently got the RBR fragrance Lilt after trying samples of all three. It is a beautiful fragrance, very different than anything I have… All three are very well done in my opinion, very elegant and “expensive” scents. I had read that they blend well together so I tried the Lilt with Chatoyant and the result was gorgeous! The bottles are to die for, amazingly well done! The are frosted heavy heavy glass that I swear are worth the purchase price just to look at 😉 You will have to let us know what you end up getting and what you love. If I remember correctly the RBR website was offering a free trio of the fragrances with an order recently. Unfortunately for me, being in the US I can’t order the fragrances directly from RBR so I stick with BeautyHabit.

Michelle 25 April, 2013 - 4:05 pm

thanks for the update Stacy 🙂
i too am in the states. good to know about them not being able to ship the cologne and having to go thru Beauty Habitat. the bottles do look very pretty and would look so nice on my chest of drawers in the bedroom. i have allot of Jo Malone colognes on my wishlist as well.the wish list keeps growing. for mother’s day I told my husband I want some more Hakuhodo brushes so my virtual shopping cart is ready! 😉

Michelle 25 April, 2013 - 4:11 pm

oh let me know how you like the products ordered ladies! I am very excited about trying this brand. I bought the lip gloss in Come Here Sweetie, as the girl from Delicate Hummingbird blog had it on in a photo and looked so pretty. hey, what happened to her as I am late and only discovered her blog a few months ago and learn something new everyday from the blog but she is not blogging at this time? I also got the blush wand in Titian, hoping it looks good on my pale skin and the time defying foundation in Linen.
