New Rouge Bunny Rouge box alert! IT’S FEB (nearly…) And FEB sucks almost as much as January sucks (that’s LOADS…and my bloody birthday is in Jan so I’m allowed to say that.) But this is a wee bit of cheer.
Rouge Bunny Rouge for those who aren’t familiar, are a small brand who specialise in super beautiful, whimsical beauty products. They’re incredible quality, always finely milled and very luxurious. The name is bonkers, but I love that they do something a little bit different. I’ll say this now, the base range (ie the foundations powders etc) are TINY – so I wouldn’t even bother going down that route. You want a big foundation range to get the right undertones and shades for your skin, but the colour cosmetics are fun, and great for WOC too which is a bonus. The textures of Rouge Bunny Rouge products always remind me of Chantecaille – and for me suit WOC far better. And they’re a bit fairy-witchy-goth too (have a look at the packaging) which is always a JOY. Anyway – off on a tangent!
They’re launching a new beauty box in Feb. This is it :
There’s s no subscription or anything – it’s a gift with purchase! (FWEEEEE!) And it’s lovely and ‘Winter’ themed. It contains:
Satin Eyeliner NOCTURNAL INK, ‘Blue Roan’ – original size
Modelling Mascara WITCHERY, ‘Midnight’ – original size
Aqua Primer PRELUDE IN THE CLOUDS – miniature
Bronzing Glow Liquid AS IF IT WERE SUMMER STILL… – miniature
Highlighting Liquid SEAS OF ILLUMINATION, ‘Sea of Tranquillity’ – sample
Delicate Flower Duo, hand-crafted, unscented plaster flowers – original RBR collectible (I was actually sent these once and was like WTF are these weird tiny tiles?! – now I know…)
So with that in mind, if you want it, these are my top RBR picks (you’ll need to buy something to get the gift set!)
1. Quartz Eyeliner in Tiger Eye Essence, 28 euros
Molten blacky, bronzey gold joy. It’s beyond lush – and there’s other shades to pick from too.
2. Blush Wand in Rubens, 31 euros
Transparent damsony blush stick that adds a sheen of deep raspberry to cheeks lips and lids. Perfect post-gym when you don’t want to cake on loads of make up. There’s 3 other lighter shades too!
3. Highlihting Liquid in Seas Of Showers, 38 euros
This is seriously pigmented stuff. Pretty sure they used to do an even darker shade which I still have, but this one works for darker skin tones to a number 5 fitzpatrick. It would work for 6 too – but would be very bright indeed. (And you’d be better off getting the Cover FX one in Candlelight which is LUSH on super dark skins.)
I’m never that taken with GWP. But this one is a special AF. Click here to buy (and hopefully get your gifty!)
