so if you zoom in, you see random sparkles. forgive me, i was dipping my glittery hands in it. this stuff has no glitter in it at all.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Orpheline
Formula: If you’re familiar with Face Fabric foundation, imagine the texture and feel, but in a blush. It’s basically a silicone based gel formula. You literally need the size of a pinhead on your finger to use on both cheeks, because it’s pure pigment. They’re so easy to blend out and sheer, but they do set pretty quickly. Once it’s on your face, they last a long time. 😉 Last year I purchased Blushing Fabric #1 and #3 and I reach for these quite often.
Blushing Fabric #4: The best way to describe it in terms of color is…cinnamon. It’s a slightly burned terracotta kind of shade? Uhm, let’s just stick with cinnamon. This particular one will be a learning curve for me, because it seems like if I apply too much of this on, it can be easily seen as a sunburned kind of look. I know I can pull it off, but when I return to the USA, I’ll have to talk to my MA on how to use it.
Blushing Fabric #5: It’s a pinky purple color and it’s really a gorgeous shade. sigh. I know I’ll be using this one often. I know this one will sell out quickly because it’s a fool-proof color.
Sheer lipstick #37: The the best way to describe it is…imagine a very soft orange cream color (like ice cream), but add in a hint of beige with a beautiful sparkle. On me it lightens up my natural lip color and on my hand it looks kind of ordinary (as in you can find another color in your stash that looks similar). But the effect and shine on your lips is incredible. SO incredible. It’s soft enough that it doesn’t scream orange, but it’s definitely not a boring clean peach color either. Lighter skintones will adore this one. On me it’s a light orange-beige. sigh. I wasn’t even planning to buy a lipstick, but I may have to try the others, because they look so beautiful.
Onto the swatches. I rushed to swatch them so they are a bit uneven, but you can get the idea:

Formula and Finish: By Terry liquid blushes are designed to be a highlighter and blush in one. These liquid blushes definitely fit the bill for that effect, as they have a high sheen and some sparkle. The overall effect they give is this really wet look. You know those photoshoots where the person looks really moist, dewy…yea, that kind of effect. You really need a tiny bit of it; one pump will be more than enough for both cheeks. The best way to apply these is with a synthetic brush (in my experience). The reason because if you just slap on the color with your fingers, it can go on a bit uneven if you’re not careful. When first applied, the sheen may scare you, but when it dries, it looks a lot better. These will be so awesome when you go out at night. yummy.
Is this worth buying?: I like the color myself, so I think it’s worth the purchase. I can say it’s a very cool pink, so it may not be for everyone. If you feel like the color isn’t for you, Poppy would probably be a better pick since it’s warmer (and a more universally flattering color). I’ll do a review for Poppy in the near future.

Texture and formula: It’s so finely milled, it feels like really creamy powder (which I’ve come to really like), creamier than La Mer’s translucent powder. It goes on so smoothly on your face. This particular blush has very fine silver sparkle that isn’t over the top. The lasting power is average for a blush, which is nice. When applied, it goes on evenly, no fuss application and it’s easy to sheer out. The formula in of itself seems like someone with dry skin would really appreciate because it just melts onto your skin.
