Rouge Bunny Rouge Velvet Whispers Full Colour Matt Lipsticks: Review and Swatches

Rouge Bunny Rouge just launched (on the 31st of July 2020) a new line of lipsticks – Velvet Whispers Full Colour Matt lipsticks, there are 7 shades, and I was sent all of them to share with you.

I took a photo of every shade separately, so here they are; a photo of the 7th shade you can see below.

How beautiful are they?

The shades are:

  • 106 Vigorous Whiff – berry
  • 107 Lighthearted Murmur –  baby pink
  • 108 Visionary Breath – this coral is like summer in a tube
  • 109 Ambitious Insinuation –  classic red
  • 110 Mirthful Innuendo – taupy nude
  • 111 Sanguine Sigh  –  I am struggling to find a good description for this shade, so just check the swatch. A reddish sienna, perhaps?
  • 112 Innocent Inhale –  raspberry red

I have been wearing these for a week, and I loved creating an outfit based on the colour, you can actually see

Burberry Cat Lashes Mascara Review

I am a big fan of everything from Burberry Beauty that I’ve tried, and their Cat Lashes Mascara mascara was not an exception.

The name itself made me want to try it, to be honest. I love cats, and cat eye is my go-to makeup look. So there we go.

The hourglass wand which is  made with elastomer took me some time to get used to but once I did I became a convert. I find that it’s easy to reach all the lashes, and it creates incredible results.

As many of you know, I am

AW19 Foundations: Chanel, Charlotte Tilbury, Pat McGrath, Anastasia, Clarins and Kevyn Aucoin

Autumn is the time to be browsing  foundations, as so many brands are bringing new  ones out. So here are just a few that caught my attention. And it’s  incredible how brands now do such a wide variety of shades, and some even demonstrate all shades applied.

Chanel Ultra Le Teint Velvet, £37. Comes in 15 shades.

“Longwearing foundation that naturally smoothes and evens out the complexion. Its blurring effect erases all imperfections and ensures makeup with a matte velvet finish.
Ultra-light, ultra-matte and ultra-natural, it instantly becomes one with the skin for a flawless complexion all day long”.

Chanel is available from NordstormSaks, Neiman Marcus, Selfridges and  Harrods.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Foundation, £34, There are 44 shades to choose from, and there is a before and after for each shade.

Favourite Makeup Products of 2018

As promised, here is a feature about my favourite makeup  of 2018. It was supposed to be makeup and beauty but I am already almost on 1200 words so had to divide the feature into 2 parts. I’ve chosen the products that I love and used the most hence some of them may look a bit grubby but it does show that they are true favourites.

And by the way, you can also check out my favourite products of 2017,  2016 and 2015

Base

Rouge Bunny Rouge SERENE LIGHT Skin Perfector  (here). This is a slightly tinted primer which leaves your skin glowing and luminous. For my very dry skin it is perfect. It is a primer so barely gives any coverage but is great for adding radiance and creating that “healthy” polished look. I have used it on my wedding day, and used it up completely. Absolutely incredible! Gets big thumbs up from me.

 Chanel Les Beiges All-in-One Healthy Glow Fluid SPF15 ( £34 from Harrods and from Nordstrom).

The “foundation” I loved the most this year. A very light and moisturising one, feels light on the skin, and gives a light (to medium) coverage. According to Chanel, it contains  a hyaluronic acid derivative and  a complex of cotton flower and white rose plant cells.  It has a relatively strong scent but I personally like it. Another thing I love about it is a chic and minimalistic tube. And SPF 15, of course.

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Eye Lift In a Tube. Dual Ended  Full Coverage Anti-Aging Concealer and  Brightener (in Light). I am not sure if the name of this product could be even longer. (From Selfridges and Sephora)

Long time readers will know how  I like only very light textures under my eyes hence I am such a fan of Touche Eclat (I’ve used many many tubes) and this Rouge Bunny Rouge gem. The same goes with this product, I did not use the concealer side at all. However, the Illuminator is incredible, I have almost used it up. It does not enhance the fine lines,  while reflecting the light which brightens the under eye area. Just don’t expect it to cover the dark circles completely, it is not the task of this product. I wonder if this Illuminator is available individually. It seems like there is one with the same name ( It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Light).

4 theBalm Balm Desert (review).

I feel like the next two products do not need an introduction, as I’ve been  talking about them non stop.  I am determined to use this bronzer/blush until I am completely  done with it. It sculpts and gives colour at the same time.  You get definition and a healthy glow with Balm Desert. I also love the finish, it is not matte but not shimmery.  Everything about it is great, including the cute cardboard packaging.

5 Daniel Sandler Watercolour in Golden Glow (review). 

It’s like a healthy post-holiday glow in a bottle.  A shimmery bronze which
