Rouge Bunny Rouge Bronzing Glow Liquid +

var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push([‘_setAccount’, ‘UA-22605383-1’]); _gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’]); (function() { var ga = document.createElement(‘script’); ga.type = ‘text/javascript’; ga.async = true; ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytics.com/ga.js’; var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s); })();

Now that summer is officially here, I bring to you stuff that makes me happy as of late, and as you all know…it’s BRONZER TIME !! 
So I know a lot of people are out there on the market looking for something that’s gives them that sunkissed glow. I don’t blame you, whatsoever. So I ordered Rouge Bunny Rouge’s bronzing liquid to see what it’s all about…
Packaging: It’s in a tall, slender pump, clear frosted packaging like their illuminators.
Texture and formula: I’m personally biased towards liquid bronzers, as it tends to look more natural, than powder. It’s definitely lovely on my skin as a soft sheen, when sheerly applied. So I tried layering this on, and the shimmer is definitely more apparent when layered. The formula in of itself is a runny liquid, so it’s easy to spread out quickly. It takes a couple of seconds to set, which isn’t bad at all because I do like an extra moment to adjust the coverage. 
Color: It’s like a golden honey-light caramel color, which I know will work gloriously on paler skintones. I know it’s very hard to find a bronzer that doesn’t make you look like an oompa loompa, but for those of you who are very fair, this won’t look orange at all. 
Size and Price: 1.75 fluid ounces; $100 (approximately given the conversion rates from GBP to USD)
Onto the photos 🙂

oddly enough in this picture you can see the shimmer when layered.

Is this worth having? I think so if you’re fair in skintone because you can use a small amount and it gives a nice warm bronze glow. If you’re like me or darker: it’s nice as a soft sheen (illuminating), but used as a bronzer, you do have to layer it. I don’t mind the shimmer when it comes to layering it, but some may.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Velvet Fritillary Long-Lasting Cream Shadow +

var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push([‘_setAccount’, ‘UA-22605383-1’]); _gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’]); (function() { var ga = document.createElement(‘script’); ga.type = ‘text/javascript’; ga.async = true; ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytics.com/ga.js’; var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s); })();

I know there must be some of you who must be tired of my blog…after all…over 90% of my posts are lip stuff. 

So for you girls who are all about the eyes, I’m sure you’re all interested in Velvet Fritillary ! 😀 

Packaging: It comes in the signature Rouge Bunny Rouge sleek, black packaging. Pretty straightforward, but part of me wishes I can see how much is left with the cream eyeshadow formula. No big deal, but you know what I mean. It’s like a lipgloss in the sense you unscrew the top and the applicator is a doe foot.

Texture and formula: This stuff is really creamy. It’s a thin (but not runny) formula. It’s wonderful for those who have really dry eyes and feel like eyeshadow primers can be drying or just not the right consistency. Velvet Fritillary is grey, but it has an interesting greenish cast/undertone. So the finish is a bit hard to explain:  It’s matte from a distance, but if you look REALLY up close, there’s a super tiny shimmer. Like super tiny, like almost non-existent. So to me, let’s just say it’s matte, but it’s not a flat matte. I like it because a lot of the cream eyeshadows tend to be very shimmery or sparkly. I’m always one for more options when it comes to finishes in all makeup products.

Longevity: so this is an interesting one…without any other primer, as in just by itself…9 hours and minimal fading. That’s not bad at all for something that’s a cream texture on my semi-oily eyelids. I’m sure this over my NARS eyeshadow primer, it would last eons. 

Size and price:
0.135 fluid ounces, or 4mL. The price is approximately $66 (conversion from GBP to USD). 

Is it worth having?: I think the color in of itself is unique, but the tube is very small. So I can understand why some people won’t buy it. For those who want a serious splurge, I don’t see why not.

Onto the photos !

Rouge Bunny Rouge Highlighting Liquid in Sea of Nectar +

var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push([‘_setAccount’, ‘UA-22605383-1’]); _gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’]); (function() { var ga = document.createElement(‘script’); ga.type = ‘text/javascript’; ga.async = true; ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytics.com/ga.js’; var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s); })();

hi ho hum it’s June which means it’s time to break out the warm golden colors ! you know bronzers, luminizers, highlighters, sparkly things that make me look like Jennifer Lopez. 

I never really bothered to look golden, well very simply because I can easily tan to NC35+ over the summer. I avoid the sun now, and given my schedule I hardly see it…but that doesn’t change the fact that I still want to look like the sun and I get along sometimes. 🙂

So today we have Rouge Bunny Rouge Sea of Nectar…It’s a highlighting liquid that’s the darkest shade from Rouge Bunny Rouge line of highlighters. I know most of us like the pretty lighter shades for our cheeks such as Sea of Tranquility. But let’s be real here, I know many of us want to have that warm radiance. Most of my life I always asked myself “What is it with Americans and wanting to be tan? but WHY!?!?!?” Ok, maybe I still ask that question but I get it, some people want to look nice and golden, like a rotisserie chicken (kidding!). 

Packaging: It comes in the gorgeous frosted glass packaging, just like Sea of Tranquility. with black flowers on the glass. I seriously fear the day I’d drop it from being such a klutz. Either way, it’s definitely pretty and luxurious. It’s something that you want out on your vanity because it’s pretty to look at.
Formula and Texture: Sea of Nectar is a metallic warm gold, with a very slight red undertone. It’s neat because it has this high metallic sheen, but when rubbed onto your skin, it’s luminous. This is what I *wish* Becca’s highlighters had been, but that’s ok. I’m not complaining.  It’s an opaque highlighter, which I personally don’t mind because I like to wear it at night. You know…in the club…with all the strobe lights on you. heee. I would use this moreso on my body than on my face. When your skin looks and feels dull on a Saturday night, this would definitely give it luminosity. I can wear it on my face with a light hand as an awesome luminous blush.

Price and Size: $70 (the reason for this approximation is the conversion from GBP to USD),1.01 fluid ounce, or 30 mL

you can see how opaque Sea of Nectar is when rubbed in a bit and the dry down? my fingers are in serious pain so I lazily rubbed in Bella Bronze (my HG body bronzer). nomm

Worth having?: For me I like it, and it has a specific purpose and I think it’s worth it. At the same time, I can see why some people may steer clear from it because it may be too intense or too dark, especially if you’re like a NC15. It can be sheered out a bit more than that, and it’s still luminous . . . but you know what? It’s glorious for us who are a bit darker in skintone…so yay !

Rouge Bunny Rouge Orpheline Original Skin Blush

var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push([‘_setAccount’, ‘UA-22605383-1’]); _gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’]); (function() { var ga = document.createElement(‘script’); ga.type = ‘text/javascript’; ga.async = true; ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytics.com/ga.js’; var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s); })();

So I’m back, albeit sick. 
But I’m here to review Rouge Bunny Rouge Orpheline blush. I’ve reviewed a couple of other items from the line seen here. The few items I do have are really beautifully packaged and nice quality as well. 
Packaging: The blush comes in a sleek black compact, with flowers on top of the lid, which I like. When you open it, there’s a nice mirror and the flower design embossed on the blush itself. The packaging is pretty straight forward, and it snaps shut, so you know when it’s closed. I like it because it’s sleek and it has a feminine touch to the packaging. Sometimes it’s too pretty that I confuse it with a mirror compact.
Texture and Color: it’s a smooth, buttery texture. It’s so finely milled that it feels like a cream when you touch it. I was a bit surprised when I first got Florita because it’s a bit smaller than what I had expected, but it’s definitely worth it. The color itself is a warm strawberry pink. It’s not overly warm where it’s garish, at all. In the pan there’s a tiny sparkle, but when applied it doesn’t show up at all. I wouldn’t consider this a matte finish type of blush, because matte blushes look flat on the face. When applied on the cheeks it feels more of a soft satin finish. 
Price and size: It’s approximately $39 (because of the conversion rate, since the price is in GBP), 3.5 grams or 0.123 oz. 
Where to purchase: Zuneta. I’ve had awesome experiences with them myself, and they do email you back in a very timely manner if you have any questions. What’s nice about the website is aside from great color descriptions, they also state what skintones the items are the most flattering on. They’re always spot-on. Since they’re based out of the UK, their shipping is pretty high, unless you spend around $150+ and you’ll get free shipping.

Is it worth buying? Of course 😀 !

Rouge Bunny Rouge Sea of Tranquility and Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer #7

var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push([‘_setAccount’, ‘UA-22605383-1’]); _gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’]); (function() { var ga = document.createElement(‘script’); ga.type = ‘text/javascript’; ga.async = true; ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytics.com/ga.js’; var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s); })();
I’ve gotten requests as to how Rouge Bunny Rouge Sea of Tranquility compares to Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer #7. They’re both very nice highlighters, but there are some differences. For the sake of this review and to make typing easier Sea of Tranquility will be (ST) and #7 will just be #7. 


Packaging: Rouge Bunny Rouge illuminator comes in this gorgeous frosted glass packaging with black flowers on the glass. Definitely pretty and luxurious. The advantage of this is that you can see how much is left in the bottle. #7 is in the standard Armani Fluid Sheer opaque packaging. Minimalist in appearance and slightly shorter in height. With #7 is when you lift the lid, the pump doesn’t come off. At times ST when you lift the lid, the pump can come off and if you’re not careful, you can spill some of the illuminator. The downside to #7 is that you can’t see how much you have left. Ok, so both overall have their small flaw, but the design of the bottle and packaging are pretty solid. 

Formula and Finish: ST layered on it has a nice pearlized finish on your face. Sheered out, the frost is less apparent, and it has a soft sheen. It has a soft smell, like a fresh garden after it rains. I’m not good with smell descriptions. It’s a neutral pink with a very slight peach to it. #7 when layered is a cooler pink, and has a milky finish. When sheered out it’s a super soft cool milky pink. It’s an awesome highlighter, and not as opaque as ST. I can’t detect a smell with #7, but it could be just my nose acting up. Fluid sheers have the claim that it’s oil free, which is an advantage for us combo to oily skintypes. The Rouge Bunny Rouge illuminators didn’t come with a list of ingredients so I don’t know if it has oil or not. 


Size and price: #7 is 30mL for $59. ST is 30 mL for approx $70 (the reason for this approximation is the conversion from GBP to USD).

Keep in mind I layered it on so you can see the color/finish difference, applied both with fingers.

Fluid Sheer #7 ingredients, as listed on the box. Rouge Bunny Rouge illuminators didn’t come with an ingredient list, well at least mine didn’t. 












Are these worth buying: Yes! They’re both different, very nice highlighters with different finishes. I wouldn’t say one is better than the other, because that’s not the case. 🙂

Rouge Bunny Rouge Florita Original Skin Blush +

var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push([‘_setAccount’, ‘UA-22605383-1’]); _gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’]); (function() { var ga = document.createElement(‘script’); ga.type = ‘text/javascript’; ga.async = true; ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytics.com/ga.js’; var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s); })();

This is seriously one of my favorite items of the moment. Rouge Bunny Rouge is a line I’ve been recently getting into, and the couple of items I do own I really like, as seen here. I recently acquired Florita blush in the mail. I’m seriously in lust with this color. Ok onto the specifics:
Size and packaging: 3.5 grams or .0123 oz. It comes in a sleek black compact with a mirror built inside. The blush itself has flowers embossed into the blush. The same pattern is seen on top of the compact, which is a really pretty feminine touch. It’s not flimsy packaging and when you close it, it snaps in. I know it sounds silly, but I am less inclined to use something if it’s crappy packaging. 

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.

Where to buy?: Zuneta.

Onto the photos 🙂

*Moroccan Rose is more mauve than Florita, and Crazed has a micro sparkle that the camera didn’t pick up.
Is this worth having?: Yes, the formula in of itself is worth having, and it’s just a gorgeous red/berry shade. As you can see, I am a sucker for these kinds of colors. 🙂

Rouge Bunny Rouge Word of Mouth Lipstick +

Rouge Bunny Rouge is a relatively new makeup line based from Russia. I’ve heard of this line through the grapevine of the makeup community. What makes me sad is that it’s not sold in the United States, but it is sold on Zuneta. Anyway, a little bit about the brand:
What makes the website in of itself stand out is the very visual and beautiful layout. Another aspect are their intense descriptions of the products, as seen on their lipstick page seen here:
The fiercely beautiful royal dragonflies from the Enchanted Garden inspired us to concoct this glorious beam of a lipstick for you.

Their buzzing intensity has been poured into the most vividly delectable hues imaginable, to make your lips appear instantly fuller, and bewitchingly luminous.

Ok, sounds a little over the top (to me), but at least the theme is original, unlike most products that are based off of something sexual, like say NARS blushes. It sounds pretty and glamourous, but does it really live up to their descriptions? For Word of Mouth lipstick, yes, it does. 
Packaging: It comes in a sleek black tube, with a flowery/garden like design on the bottom of the tube. I do wish that it had a magnetic enclosure, but it’s a small con. My main concern is the cap falling off in my bag, but the lid doesn’t easily slide off either. The tube is sturdy, which I like.

Texture: Can I just take a few moments to discuss this? It’s what I’ve dreamed in terms of what my dream lipbalm and lipstick in one would feel like on my lips. It’s definitely a full coverage lipstick, but the balm feeling is amazing. It’s really a unique formula in of itself. It has been a long time since I’ve been really blown away with such a texture.
Longevity: It’s not as long-lasting as my Giorgio Armani Rouge d’Armani lipstick, but you do get a few hours with it. The best part is due to the brilliant texture, it wears off to a beautiful balmy stain. When it does wear off, the balm feeling remains and your lips feel so moisturized and hydrated. 
The color itself, well let’s see some photos:

The closest color that I have in my makeup vault is probably Shu Uemura.

Is it worth getting: Yes !! Word of Mouth is such a soft shade that even fair ladies would feel comfortable wearing it. I know this color will be a staple in my makeup bag with my pretty Rouge d’Armani lipsticks. I’ll be buying more Rouge Bunny Rouge when I return from vacation. 🙂
