Rouge Bunny Rouge Blush Wand in Manet, a soft coral with pink leanings, is probably the most natural looking blush I own. The color is somewhat outside of my comfort zone, and just as it tends to happen with other products that are sent to me for review, I was blown away discovering how wonderful it is. Maybe it's because of the semi-sheer texture and the skin-like finish, maybe it's the way this shade settles on my cheeks (they're less ghostly green than my arm) and brings out whatever natural color I may have. It's hard to tell, but Manet doesn't look like makeup when I blend it into my skin.
Rouge Buny Rouge is famous for incredible makeup textures, and the blush wand is no different. It has an almost gel-like consistency, a sheer creamy finish that melds with the skin and doesn't just sit on top of it. Blending is a breeze. I don't need to fuss with it for longer than a couple of seconds-- maybe because the shade itself is so right. The blush holds on to whatever base I'm wearing and stays put all day. It's a reliable product that doesn't require any skill or planning. Just touch and go.
One thing that needs to be noted is that Rouge Bunny Rouge blush wands are tiny. Each wand holds only 4ml of product. While the blush is very pigmented and doesn't require more than a light touch, it's still less than third the size of a NARS Multiple (1/2 oz, approx. 14ml). I still think it's worth it, especially if you're not a one blush person and keep a color wardrobe on hand.
Bottom Line: I see two other shades in my future.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Blush Wand is available from beautyhabit.com ($29) as well as directly from rougebunnyrouge.com (29 euro). Also from Zuneta. The product for this review was sent to me free of charge.
