Earlier, I introduced you to Rouge Bunny Rouge Metamorphoses Mattifying Primer; while it didn’t sweep me off my feet, my foray into the enchanting world of cult- favorite Rouge Bunny Rouge can’t be curbed. Not just yet.
Let’s start with Orpheline ($28, 3.5g), described as warm strawberry blush with illuminating radiance. It is part of the For Love Of Roses Original Skin Blush Collection which features six rose petal-soft hues ranging from pale to uber bright pinks and corals.
Ever heard of “small but terrible”? that’s what Orpheline reminds me of. Small and compact but a total kick-ass when it comes to pigmentation. The texture and finish reminds me of Tarte Amazonian clay blush. You definitely need a light hand when applying it. It is rosy-pink with barely-there sheen, enough to impart radiance without accentuating mah open pores. A must-try ladies!
Inspired by delicate butterflies from The Enchanted Garden, the Succulence of Dew Sheer Lipstick features five shades. It claims to hydrate and re-sculpt the lips to fullness. Dissolved in Dreams ($24, 3.8g) is described as sheer watermelon with silver shimmer.
I hate to be a Debbie Downer because it is indeed a beautiful rosy-pink lipstick. I think I look well-rested and healthy whenever I wear it but here’s the issue my dahlings…. it ain’t creamy and hydrating. Also the silver shimmer makes it a tad gritty. I wish the angels intervened but there was no miraculous re-sculpting of lips that transpired. I might be taking it to the extreme but you get what I mean, this is just plain lipstick.
Here are the swatches of Orpheline blush and Dissolved in Dreams lipstick:
Finally, here’s the infamous FOTD (face of the day) featuring Orpheline and Dissolved in Dreams:
