A Few Pieces from Rouge Bunny Rouge

Over the past few months, the beauty blogosphere has gone nuts over the Anglo-Russian brand Rouge Bunny Rouge. For most of us, including those of us Stateside, the only place to access these beauties is from the website, which is based in Britain but ships worldwide.

The Rouge Bunny Rouge, or RBR, logo from the back of a box.
The imperial looking logo is indicative of the high quality of the products in this line. They do veer towards being a bit pricey, but in my experience, they are worth it if you are looking to invest in some unique items. Plus, Zuneta often has sales of 10 or 20% off of everything in their store (the code elle20 will get you 20% off until sometime in February, a little birdie has told me...). I will be posting swatches of these products over the coming week, but in the meantime I wanted to introduce you to what I have. 

Rouge Bunny Rouge - Angelic Cockatiels
The most popular items in the line seem to be their shadows, which come in a wide range of what appear to be undupe-able shades. I stayed away from some of the most popular ones, which seem to be Delicate Hummingbird, Abyssinian Catbird, and Solstice Halcyon. Instead I went for two slightly less popular shades, but ones that look gorgeous but also highly wearable on a day-to-day basis.

The first one I picked up was Angelic Cockatiels (pictured above), which is described as 'a metallic gold-finish honey with a hint of copper.' Zuneta recommends wearing it as a highlighting shadow, but I also think it could be worn all over the lid with a darker shade in the crease. From in the pan, it definitely has a metallic, or at least shimmery, finish and is a warm beige.

Rouge Bunny Rouge - Fire-Tailed Sunbird
The second shade, Fire-Tailed Sunbird (say that three times fast!) has a more matte, satiny finish with an apricot tone. The texture of both of these is exceptionally buttery and smooth, which should make blending a dream! I cannot wait to play around with these and will post the results!

Rouge Bunny Rouge - Coy lipgloss
Being the lipgloss lover that I am, I couldn't resist trying out one of their shades--especially since I have not yet heard much talk over the RBR glosses. I decided to go for Coy, which is a warm pinky-red strawberry. It does have a lot of shimmer, but is sheer enough to still look rather polished. I don't know that this is the most exceptional product in history, but it is very nice nonetheless. 

Rouge Bunny Rouge Sheer Lipstick - Tongue Tickles
The final product I purchased (in this order....there may or may not also be two RBR blushes on their way to me) is a sheer lipstick in the shade Tongue Tickles. This is hands down a super star, MLBB (my lips, but better) for me. It is a fresh, sheer pink with plenty of cool, silvery shimmer throughout. I was worried that it would be too light on my naturally pigmented lips, but after a few minutes of wear, it settles down into a gorgeous, natural shade. It has a slightly rough texture (I am guessing this is the's not rough, per se, just in comparison to all of the lip butters & balms I have been wearing lately), but lasts a good couple of hours on the lips (which is fantastic for me, as lippies never stay on me) and doesn't dry out my lips. The bullet also has a curved shape, rather than flat, and so it fits the lips perfectly on the first swipe! If you like sheer lipsticks, you should definitely look into these!
