What better way to continue my Rouge Bunny Rouge voyage than with more lipstick? During one of my first online shopping forays at Zuneta, I saw that Rouge Bunny Rouge offered eight lipstick shades in a sheer formula. I love sheer lip colors. I had a dilemma. Buy one or all eight? I decided to buy one, try it out, and then order more. That rational process resulted in another order. The last time I ordered, I purchased Dark Juices and Fluttering Sighs. I tried to order Tongue Tickles, but it was out of stock that week. Must be gorgeous! I made a mental note to try again next time.
Succulence of Dew Sheer Lipstick ($32.57) has all the qualities of my other new Rouge Bunny Rouge makeup beauties: whimsical packaging, lust-worthy color, and a story. The first shade I had ordered was Dissolved in Dreams. You can see it at this link. That's where you can also read the enchanting tale about these "soft, diaphanous colors that hover on your lips so finely that they enhance and refine your naturalness into a graceful glamour."
My two new sheer lipsticks are shown in the tubes above, with Dark Juices at left and Fluttering Sighs at right. Dark Juices is described at Zuneta as a shiny, sheer blue-toned plum, shimmering with silver. That's a perfect description. Fluttering Sighs is described as a sheer, shiny tea rose warmed with a gold shimmer. Don't let the "tea rose" lead you to think it's a pure rose or pink shade. I think it's a peachy pink hybrid - definitely warm in tone.
Check out these swatch photos and see what you think. I tried to take them at different angles to the sun to show these gorgeous shades with all of their nuances. Fluttering Sighs applied a bit too heavily below Dark Juices. It was so hot out when I took these photos, the tube started to soften in the sun! It was one of those "cook a lipstick on the walk" days.
Dark Juices offers more shimmer than Fluttering Sighs. I fell in love with it instantly. It's in my "utterly perfect" color range. Plum shades are flattering - for me and many women. They work year-round, depending on their intensity. I've been wearing Dark Juices all week. The shimmer gleams, but not in a flashy, metallic way. It's perfect.
Fluttering Sighs has less shimmer, although my full sun photos show how beautifully it reflects light. The color is scrumptious - no other way to describe it. There's a lot of peach in the rose - at least on my skin. I think Fluttering Sighs is one of those color straddlers that will work on both cool and warm skins.
These sheer lipsticks adhere nicely, providing good wear and flattering color. Tongue Tickles is definitely next on my list. There's so much to love. At the rate I'm going, I'll own every Succulence of Dew shade before the year's out.
You can purchase Rouge Bunny Rouge at Zuneta. They offer free international shipping with orders over £65. I never have any trouble achieving the free shipping level. If anything, I have to restrain myself from ordering one of everything.
