Rouge Bunny Rouge Dazzling Sip Tinted Luxe Balm from the Euphony of Lace Collection for Spring 2016

The moment I saw the e-mail announcing the new Rouge Bunny Rouge Dazzling Sip Tinted Luxe Balms ($31), I asked about them. There are no lipsticks that delight me more than those that are sheer and shimmery. Totally unexpectedly, Rouge Bunny Rouge offered to send them to me, making me one of the most grateful bloggers on Earth. They arrived on a sunny day. I knew I could get photos if I hurried. I think my hands were trembling as I opened the box. It's a wonder I didn't cut myself. I left Charlie playing with the pretty RBR tissue paper as I dashed outside to try them and take photos. I've been wearing them ever since.

These beautiful new lip colors are part of Rouge Bunny Rouge's Euphony of Lace Collection for Spring 2016. The beautiful model is wearing the new Spring Harmony eye shadow palette, the Foundation Essence I featured in January, and the darkest of the Tinted Lip Balms, Specs of Cerise. To see how she got the look shown above, pop over to the Web site, where you will find step-by-step directions.

The three shades are shown directly above. From left to right, they are:
  • Pinch of Nude, a juicy and transparent juicy beige, nude that adds shimmer with little color for your casual days;
  • Sip of Pink, a transparent and luminous soft raspberry-pink with light peach undertones; and
  • Specs of Cerise, a transparent and luminous red - like crimson-red cherries.
The balms offer dazzling, sheer treatment colors with anti-aging, intensely moisturizing, and repairing properties. They have a delicate scent that dissipates quickly, leaving behind all of the hydration and shine. They feel light and creamy on the lips. As we age, our lips lose color, elasticity, and volume; the unique Tinted Luxe Balm formula is exclusively aimed at making a difference. The shimmer will make your lips look plump. It doesn't get better!

Rouge Bunny Rouge says that Tinted Luxe Balm is based on a powerful active complex designed to bring back the original volume of our lips within four weeks of daily use, all while smoothing fine lines, nourishing, and brightening the lips. An Ecocert-approved, patented active complex derived from natural sunflower oil intensely hydrates and softens (clinically approved). I haven't had them for four weeks to testify to this effect, so I'll have to get back to you later. In the meantime, I'm enjoying them for their sheer, shiny look.

Adding to the glamour of Rouge Bunny Rouge color, there is a story, of course. This sybaritic balm is inspired by the Dragon-guarded Fountains of Indulgence in the Enchanted Garden.

It's a soothing yet scintillating mélange of exuberance and healing that quenches your lips with richness while glinting them with a light veil of precious pearls. This sumptuously luxuriant balm melts creamily, dispelling cold and fatigue, making your lips as soft to the touch as the unopened buds of spring, while also polishing them with a dewy gleam. Your shining smile will sweep everyone around you into the heart of the Water Faeries’ abode, where you can swim unabashed in your own bubble of contentment.

Luxury care, with a reflection of pearls. An innovative lip balm that nourishes, restores, and protects with a Triglyceride-packed formula. With specially selected actives: an emollient complex, rice bran oil and vitamin E for antioxidant and emollient properties. Aloe adds moisture and promotes natural healing. A structured, full-bodied cream glides on smoothly and melts onto the lips. The immediate results are healthy lips with a brilliant veil of precious pearls.

The transparent shimmer at the top of my arm is Pinch of Nude (#091). The middle shade is Sip of Pink (#092). The shade at the bottom is Specs of Cerise (#093). I applied all three shades directly to my arm (one pass) from the tubes and took my photos in late-afternoon sun. I love them all. I would have purchased all three.

You can purchase Dazzling Sip Tinted Luxe Balms from Rouge Bunny Rouge and Beautyhabit. Rouge Bunny Rouge was offering a buy two, get one free offer in February, but I don't think it's still valid. Beautyhabit has a special offer on their page. With your $85 or more Rouge Bunny Rouge purchase, you will receive a Succulence of Dew Sheer Lipstick in Tongue Tickles - a beautiful shiny pale carnation pink with a white shimmer (a $29 value) Use the code LACE. The offer expires March 25, 2016 or as long as supplies last.

I tried out a few of the RBR products recently and am in LOVE with the brand! Lovely textures, great packaging and beautiful shades! Of these tinted balms, I think the pink and the berry shade would work for me. The Nude one wouldn't even show up on my pigmented lips.

Thank you, Anonymous. That's what I get for writing late in the evening. :)

These look delightful. I've been a longtime fan of the Succulence of Dew Sheer Lipstick (Wherever do they get those names? :-) ). They're sheer, but the color is unmistakably there. Two of my favorites are Tongue Tickles (Those names again! LOL) and Fluttering Sighs. I wish RBR had a stronger presence in the US. They really do put out some wonderful products with excellent texture, refined finish, and beautiful color.

Random thought: Why do some brands think they have to photoshop their product promos to the point where they look like artist illustrations rather than product photographs? Your picture of the lipsticks is so much more flattering than the RBR's. Since the vast majority of people in the US have to buy RBR blind, it makes sense to present a more accurate (and honest) representation. RBR is fortunate to have you to show how beautiful the product actually is :-)

Beautiful color and texture! I could do without the nude, but those pinky rose shades...gorgeous!

Ladies - I've been so tempted by rouge bunny rouge and I just decided to take the plunge because the 3for2 sale is still on until the 23rd I believe. I also got the eye whip mousse in Gossamer Wing that CG blogged about in February, and the gorgeous smokey eye palette Raw Garden. I am so excited!!! They let me pick 7 samples too which is delightful for a brand newbie like myself. I couldn't be more pleased and naturally am quite sure I will be in love with everything as I always am with CGs stamp of approval.

I'm so glad y'all like RBR as much as I do. They are one of my superstar brands!
