Rouge Bunny Rouge Time Defying Foundation Skin Sanctuary Review and Swatches of All Shades

I really wanted to try the newest Rouge Bunny Rouge Time Defying Foundation Skin Sanctuary on a more mature skin, as well as on myself  but, unfortunately,  did not get a chance to do so yet.

But since I have promised a review to several people quite a long time ago, I thought I’d share anyway…

I’d say that this foundation gives a medium coverage and evens out the skin tone pretty well, without feeling heavy. I have tried several  application methods and liked really working it into the skin with Sigma’s brushes the best. That way it really blends in and gives a natural looking effect, so that people don’t really see that you are wearing a foundation.

As for the finish, it is not dewy but not matte. It doesn’t make my skin glow, like some light reflective foundations, but at the same time doesn’t make the skin look flat and dull. It is probably the effect that most women desire for their every day look.

It is promised to work for all skin types and it does work for my very dry skin tone but I have to prep the skin properly. However, if you have normal skin – it should work really well for you! I’d assume the same for the girls with oily skin.

Skin Sanctuary (love this name a lot) should  diminish the natural signs of aging that appear with mature skin and help to prevent and protect younger complexions.

Key Ingredients:

  •  Detoxyl, a natural complex derived from Shea Butter,  protects, detoxifies and calms, offering skin sanctuary from ravaging free radicals and urban pollutants.
  •  Ceramide III & IV – works to erase fine lines, deeply moisturises and monitors the skin’s dehydration process, rejuvenates the skin.
  • Extracts of Karitè Butter Seed  – nourishes and softens.

This time there are four shades available with one being suitable for deeper skin tone:

  • BARLEY CREAM, Medium honeyed beige
  • LINEN CREAM, Pale milky beige
  • QUINOA CREAM, Pale pinkish beige
  • WHEAT CREAM, Medium tawny beige

The price is €48.50 for 30 ml/ 1.01 fl oz

Although my personal love is Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Tinted Moisturiser Sketches on Water, this is a great foundation and will suit a lot of women.


Diorskin Nude Skin-Glowing Make-Up in Ivory Review and Swatches

I have been wearing Diorskin Nude Skin-Glowing Make-Up by Dior (£31), which is a part of their Nude range, for several weeks now so I am ready to give you my opinion.

I love the classic design, it is simple but luxurious at the same time. This foundation comes with a pump which is very handy as you don’t waste any product.

I have the lightest shade which is called Ivory. It is a little bit light for me right now but will be perfect soon.

Skin-Glowing Make-Up does give a glowing but not dewy or matte finish which should work both for dry or oily skin. It looks very natural on the skin and if you blend it properly it is very hard to tell that you are wearing anything, Nude is a perfect name for such product actually.

I was amazed that this foundation smooths out the skin (I think that pores are less visible, too) and evens out the skin tone nicely. I find that it gives a medium coverage but can be built up without looking like you have tones of product on.  Plus it feels light on the skin. I personally don’t need a concealer with this foundation.

It has a nice smell and

Clarins Skin Illusion Mineral & Plant Extracts Loose Powder Foundation Review and Swatches

As you may remember, there are a lot of new foundations out for Autumn. So here is, as promised, review of one of them – Clarins Skin Illusion Mineral & Plant Extracts Loose Powder Foundation.

I have the lightest shade, of course, which is 105 Ivory. I actually really like the design of this foundation.  I love how it looks on my vanity, it draws attention and it is cute. Isn’t it important, too? 😉

I don’t usually use mineral foundations as they may look powdery and a bit cakey on my dry skin. But since it’s summer my skin is normal now, so I’ve decided to give this one a try. I’ve had it for several weeks and am ready to tell you my opinion.

Here is how the powder  looks like.

First of all, I love the scent, it smells fresh and floral, as a lot of Clarins powders do, and I love it!  I was afraid that it may look too obvious on my skin, but it doesn’t.  You should prep your skin first and application is the key here (more on that read below). But it looks flawless and blends in beautifully. Skin Illusion doesn’t feel heavy on the skin, if fact, I can’t even feel it.

It is long-lasting and stays on really well. Unfortunately, I did not have a chance to test it out in the heat but it does stay  on all day long when it’s  +25C.

The coverage is medium to high, it is buildable, I had some skin problems this month and it was enough. I just used a little bit of concealer on top. Otherwise, this loose  powder foundation would be enough.

I have also used cream products on top (photo below) and they

17 Sheer Moisture Foundation SPF 12 Review and Swatches

I have already told you that most of the time  I get asked to recommend a nice and cheap makeup product. This is why I’ve bought some affordable products to try out and let you know my opinion.

And since today we are talking about 17 anyway, I though I’d tell you about their Sheer Moisture Foundation SPF 12.

I’ve got it around Christmas time but also wanted to try it out in summer so this is why it took me so long to write about it.

I have got a shade which is called Light (I think the only other shade is Medium) and I have say that it was   too dark for my skin tone during the winter time so it’s definitely not that light…

The coverage is very sheer, this is basically a tinted moisturizer, and light so don’t expect that it will cover  blemishes  and red spots completely.  I’d say that it would work for those who have nice skin to begin with but want to even out the

Rouge Bunny Rouge Tinted Moisturiser Sketches on Water Review and Swatches of All Shades

Summer is here so it’s time for a light coverage  foundation or, even better, tinted moisturizer. This is why I think it’s a perfect time to tell you about the Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Tinted Moisturiser Sketches on Water (£46).

It comes in three shades and I had a sample of each shade which was enough to properly try the product and swatch the shades for you.

The shades that available are:

  • ADANSONIA, Transparent wash of pale milky beige
  • SEQUOIA, Transparent wash of pinkish beige
  •  QUERCUS, Transparent wash of warm tawny mid-beige

Here is how they look like. I should have taken a photo earlier as there is hardly anything left and the product is a bit dried out (I’ve had it for months) but you can still see how each shade looks like which  is the most important thing here.

As you can imagine, this TM would
