I received Rouge Bunny Rouge Bronzing Glow Liquid As If It Were Summer Still... ($99.26) at the start of summer. Even so, I appreciate the wishful thinking of its title, imagining that feeling we experience as autumn's chill descends, like a curtain on the last act of summer.
I delight in the descriptions provided for Rouge Bunny Rouge's products on Zuneta's Web site. I can't compete with the whimsy!
When the Sun-God cries tears of joy, each precious drop is collected by the Fire Sprites in the Enchanted Garden. These precious drops are sent to all corners of the realm to bring the light and delight of summer, in all seasons, in all weathers.
The Order of Rouge Bunny Rouge recreated this liquid enchantment in a bottle to polish your skin to a natural, even, and radiant blissed-out halo of warmth. The subtle softness of the golden micro-particles contained within its heart will burnish you to glistening silk, all laid out on a reserved bed of summer.
Anoint yourself, with this delicately exotic liquid, to remind you of spinning until light-headed under the dreamy light of the sun on a mid-summer's day. Gloriously glamorous and inexorably captivating, you'll be transformed into a Sun Angel, even in the midst of the greyest winter.
This liquid formula of the future will magnify your youth and summer glow timelessly. Giving a transparent, extremely luminous and smoothing finish. The health and beauty of the face and body are emphasized beyond comparison, by a natural lighting effect.
This Bronzing Glow Liquid illuminates while it bronzes. The glow it provides is gorgeous, and you can apply it sheerly for a touch of warmth or layer it for a bronze goddess look. Because the intensity of the application is up to each user, this bronzer will work for everyone who wants a summer glow. The shade is an incredible, luminous, shimmering brown. There isn't a trace of orange. It looks pretty on my pale skin, and I'll bet it would look equally good on medium and dark complexions. I enjoy a laugh when my chocolate-skinned friends tell me they need a bronzer. They have no idea how envious I am of their ageless, gorgeously warm skin.
Not only is Bronzing Glow Liquid great for a glow, it's packed with ingredients that are good for our skin. It contains hyaluronic acid and a mix of triglycerides to moisturize and smooth the skin. Grape seed oil will help restore the elasticity of the skin. I love makeup that multitasks. I also love makeup that looks nice in its packaging and container. Each Rouge Bunny Rouge gem is cleverly decorated with a design from the Enchanted Garden.
There is no question that Bronzing Glow Liquid As If It Were Summer Still... is pricey. Basically, it's $100 U.S. dollars. A little goes a very long way, so I doubt anyone could use a whole bottle in less than a year, particularly if the product is limited to the face, neck, and décolleté. I wouldn't recommend using it as a full body bronzer. I think it's too expensive for that, even if the Product Application Guide at Zuneta shows it being applied to a model's arms, discusses using it over the whole body, and incidentally mentions the face. However, there's plenty in the bottle if you want to go full-on bronze.
The bottle has a long "paddle" inside for drawing out the product. You can use the tip of the paddle to apply a dab to your palm and apply it from the palm with either your fingers or a brush.
I wanted to show you a swatch photo. My swatch was "messy." The contents of the bottle expanded a bit in transit (as liquids often do during air travel), so I took a dab of this liquid gold from the rim of the bottle with my finger to spread on my arm. My photo was taken in full sun, but the shimmer you see is the bronzer. I applied it heavily for this photo.
I've tried Bronzing Glow Liquid on my face, applying it lightly to the high points of my face, as well as my neck and my chest. I think it looked fabulous, and it did not transfer to my clothing. I let it dry before I dressed.
I've become such a Rouge Bunny Rouge addict. As I've mentioned recently, Zuneta's customer service, helping me (or you) select colors online is superlative. The shipping from the U.K. is free to U.S. customers who order enough. I haven't had any trouble achieving the free shipping level. I've done it multiple times! There's even more Rouge Bunny Rouge to come here at Best Things in Beauty - more of the Enchanted Garden...maybe a few more Fire Sprites. If you missed my earlier features, just scroll down (a few pages).
You can find the Rouge Bunny Rouge Web site at this link. They have a Facebook page here. Head over to Zuneta to browse and order. Just remember, with the currency exchange, you can expect to pay a little more than you might normally pay for exclusive, luxury cosmetics in the U.S.
