If you follow me on Instagram, you could already see a preview of some Rouge Bunny Rouge products that I was sent for a review, so here is a long time promised feature about their Glassy Gloss Sweet Excess gorgeous glosses.
There are six shades in the range, and I actually have five of them. The missing shades is CHERRY CLAFOUTIS which is described as a “gloss version of the ‘Scrumptiously Devious’ lipstick, sheer blue based cool pink with a warm golden opalescence”. And I actually have a review of the lipstick here.
The shades I have are (descriptions from Rouge Bunny Rouge):
FLEUR PARFAIT, Cushiony-soft semi-opaque mauve pink, with subtle silver highlights
MOUSSE FANDANGO, Dark tone of milky pink with barest whispers of grayish mauve and touch of silver micro pearls
RAHAT LOKUM, Pale milky pink with medium-heavy mother of pearl effect micro-shimmer
RASPBERRY MERINGUE, Pale pink with very soft mother of pearl micro-shimmer – this shade doesn’t yield a strong colour, but it makes lips naturally pretty
RHUBARB CUSTARD, Semi sheet coverage milky nude rosewood – irreplaceable my-lips-but-better colour
My personal favourite is Raspberry Meringue which is actually always in my handbag. It is a gorgeous cool-toned pink with micro-shimmer. Love me some sparkles!
The other shade that I use a lot is Rahat Lokum which is heavier on the shimmer and warmer in tone. I am actually wearing it as I type.
Rhubarb Custard is a great option for those who like “nude” lip glosses. It is a creamy and balmy every day kind of shade. No shimmer.
As for Mousse Fandango – RBR have a reallyRead More

Although I personally love berry and plum shades all year round, they look especially nice in Autumn/Winter. Recently my friend asked me what lipstick I was wearing as she really loved it, and was surprised to hear that it was Maybelline. This made me think that I should write about affordable berry lipsticks that I would recommend. So here are three different options…
Bourjois Color Boost Glossy Finish Lipstick in 06 Plum Russian (review and lip swatches)
It is a gorgeous glossy plum which feels comfortable on the lips, and is super easy to apply as it comes in a crayon form. You can get a sheer colour pay-off or layer it for an intense effect. It can also be worn on top of other lipsticks if you want to create an extra sheen/gloss. The other day my Mum saw this lipstick, and loved so it much, that now I have to get a new one for myself (as she “borrowed” mine) .
