Review: Rouge Bunny Rouge Original Skin Blush Starina

I only have 1 blush from Rouge Bunny Rouge. I bought it last year, and it’s in a nude shade that I lack. I bought this sight unseen, only depending on some online swatches, and of course, it’s a gamble. Initially, I thought I was getting something really light, but against my skin, it’s actually not too bad.

It comes in a pan similar to the eye shadows. It is a little smaller than my palm, and the case is quite slim. I bought this from Luxola¬†(affilliated) when there was a sale, and it cost me less than RM100. Not bad, considering there was free shipping as well. What surprised me was the texture of this blush. It is quite powdery even when picked up with my softest Chikuhodo Z4 brush, but it goes on the skin like silk. It doesn’t take much blending, and the intensity of the colour can be built up.


RBR Starina


Rouge Bunny Rouge describes Starina as the palest coral with an illuminating radiance, great for any pale complexion. The pan looks quite dark here but it’s different applied. I think RBR’s description of the shade is¬†pretty accurate based on the swatch below, don’t you think? I wore this blush in the picture below, taken end of last year for my Sunday Stash Shopping post. As you can see, it is quite nude with just the right hint of coral. It is a very natural shade one me, giving me slight warmth without looking muddy or ashy.

Have you tried any RBR blushes before? It took me a long time to actually review this. I had the pictures ready for ages, but just never thought of writing it. Sometimes, it’s just weird like that. This blush pairs very well with Clinique Curviest Caramel, one of my favourite nude lipsticks. It’s also what I was wearing in the picture above. What do you think of this shade? Do you like your blushes bright, or nude? I’m making a conscious effort to get colours other than pink. I seem to have a variety of pink blush shades in my stash but not so much other shades. WEIRD!
