Review – Rouge Bunny Rouge Original Skin Blush Delicata

I may well be one of the few people who had NOT tried the Rouge Bunny Rouge, and i was more than eager to make that change. The Original Skin Blush products from Rouge Bunny Rouge have received numerous rave reviews, but i actually got to know about this brand through fellow blogger friends Jacqueline and Lunaface. So when Luxola was having a sale, i took the plunge! This blush retails for S$51 (3.5g, made in Italy) on the Luxola website.

Original Skin Blush blends with a sheer, melting touch for a naturally luminous silky 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 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’ effect; you’ll wonder how you blushed before.

There are a total of 6 shades – Delicata, Florita, Gracilis, Habenera, Starina and Orpheline.

The floral design embossed on the blush is very dainty, and pretty. Makes one happy just looking at it 🙂
However, the black plastic casing leaves much to be desired, especially for the price that we’re paying. S$51 is by no means cheap, so perhaps some improvement in the packaging is something the brand needs to be looking at. Anyhow, i do appreciate the nice mirror within the casing, which is very convenient for mid-day touch-ups.

I chose Delicata because I wanted something different from the usual corals and pinks which i already have in my stash. It did look rather ‘pale’ on screen and I really wasn’t sure if it would show up nicely on my cheeks, but i decided to take a chance anyway. 😉

Here’s a picture of a swatch on the back of my hand.

First Impressions:

  • Texture-wise, it’s fairly smooth and blends well
  • Matte, with a touch of shimmer. Very subtle, and i like that.
  • RBR describes Delicata as a ‘Nude beige-rose with the barest hint of peach for an illuminated natural glow – Excellent to accentuate your cheekbones creating a 3D-effect depth’. And i completely agree.
  • It hardly shows up on my fair skin. No rosy-cheek effect here.
  • I wouldn’t quite classify this as a blush, it probably works better as a bronzer for some.
  • I like the quality of this blush, but Delicata is as expected – a color that’s not suitable for me.
