Rouge Bunny Rouge Original Skin Blush in Delicata - Review, Pictures, Swatches
Why is it so hard to write about a product that I love so dearly? I purchased the Rouge Bunny Rouge Original Skin Blush in Delicata from Zuneta months and months ago. So long ago I was still taking pictures outside waiting for sunlight through the clouds. So why, now when I have literally reached pan and have completely finished this blush can I not put a few words together telling you all what a staple it has become in my daily makeup routine?
This unsung hero in my makeup case is a blush with no equal. It is quite possibly the perfect contour color I have ever used in my entire life. And remember, I date back to the Paleozoic Era so I have some experience with contour blushes. The blush is sheer. I mean like second skin, airbrush sheer. It imparts such a natural look to the skin that I question if it is made from fairy dust and wishes.
The color is a tawny brownish rose. It's hard to describe accurately because it is s sheer that it will look different on different skin tones. I will admit that when I first purchased this I was expecting more of a pink color and I was slightly disappointed. But then I thought I might use this for a contour and that is when the magic happened.
Hen applied in the hollows of my cheeks and the sides of my nose, the Rouge Bunny Rouge Original Skin Blush in Delicata transformed my face. I looked "sculpted", "defined" "chiseled". I HAVE CHEEK BONES AGAIN AND A SLIMMER NOSE! Sorry to shout, but after years of just going through the motions with a contour I have finally found a contour blush that actually CONTOURS!
Now I know what you are thinking. "Elvira, there are a bevy of contouring products out there that are far less expensive. Why do I need this one?"
Well my frugal minded friend. You are absolutely correct. There are less expensive contour blushes out there. You probably have one yourself. However. I have found this one and I love it and I learned not too long ago that I could waste all my money buying products to try and replace a beloved but high priced item or I could just buy the high priced item and save my money for other stuff.
So yes. this blush retails for approximately $31 USD on Zuneta and Beautyhabit. That is high as far as blushes go. But the fact that It is the most perfect nude beigey rose with the slightest hint of peach, and it gives an illuminated glow, and accentuates my cheekbones creating...actual cheekbones...it's a small price to pay for such perfection.
What say you? Do you contour? Do you have a favorite contouring blush/product?
