Today I would like to share about the new Rouge Bunny Rouge Glassy Gloss. You may remember my review (here), so, yes, these are the re-launched version, and they are very different. The only thing which is the same is the name.
But before we get started, I have to remind you of the 20% discount RBR kindly offered to my readers. The code is RBR-BLOGQ4; valid until the 31st March 2020. It is not affiliated and I don’t get any profit, just sharing the love. The glosses were sent me.
But back to the glosses, there are 5 shades in total, they come in a red outer packaging and in tubes with frosted effect. You can tell that it’s a high end product straight away.
When you open the tube, the first thing you notice is the applicator which I find to be great, it’s very user friendly and is great for precision.
I also have to mention that the glosses are scented, which I personally like, but not everyone will.
What about the formula and the finish?
The pigmentation is insane, it’s out-of-this-world intense. The formula is very creamy, it glides onto the lips and leaves you with glassy, vinyl-like finish. Trust me, it is quite a statement! Full-on but not greasy or heavy at all. It is not drying, however, there is a price to be paid, this gloss is high maintenance. You can’t just pop it on on the go, especially with more intense shades, mirror is a must, so is checking on your lips during the day/night. You can wear the gloss on it’s own or apply on top of the lipstick for that wow, show-stopping look.
But that’s just one way to wear this fabulous product. I personally have been wearing three of these shades as “stains”. They are not your regular stains, as they do not stay put (and dry out your lips). But they give you that beautiful just-been-kissed carefree look. Makes me think of all the French women beauty cliches (in a good way). That’s exactly how it looks. Just be warned that even applied this way, dabbed with a finger, it will transfer and come off easily.
What about the shades?
ROSEHIP PANNA COTTA, “creamy opaque cool nude pink – irreplaceable my-lips-but-better colour”. It is exactly that for a lot of women.
CRÈME CARAMEL, “creamy opaque warm nude beige like creamy caramel pudding”. This is such a Victoria Beckham shade, a great nude.
CORAL MACARON, “creamy opaque warm coral pink”. Would look gorgeous on warm-toned skins/tan. It is also a pretty blush shades, as all of them are, actually.
BERRY SORBET , “creamy opaque berry pink”, for me personally, this is the easiest shade to wear, my everyday shade,when blotted with a tissue.
RED VELVET TART, “creamy opaque, deep red like red velvet”. This was my Christmas shade, and it did not disappoint. It is quite a red!
I though a comparison with a more mainstream product would be useful so here is Chanel Rouge Allure Ink in 168 Serenity (bottom swatch), and how Rosehip Panna Cotta and Serenity look applied to on the lips (RBR is more pink).
The price of each gloss is €28 for 6 ml / 0.2 fl oz from Rouge Bunny Rouge
