Rouge Bunny Rouge sure love their names long because today’s product is about the Original Skin Blush For Love Of Roses. If there is another great product that you need to try out, it is definitely an Original Skin Blush. The one thing that I immediately loved were the pretty flowers embossed in the powder itself. Expect finely milled pigments with soft finishes. It is called Skin Blush for a reason, the whole idea is to enhance the skin in a natural way.

Original Skin Blushes come in six petal-soft colours. They all look very wearable, aren’t screamingly bright and look so soft. The blushes come in a round black compact with a floral design, it’s the same floral design that you will see in the blush itself.  The compact carries a little mirror for on the go. A blush contains 3.5 g of product and goes for 28 euro. Original Skin Blushes are supposed to be sheer and they’ll melt into the skin. It has a creamy touch because of the pearls and They also contain some active ingredients. Uhaloa and other ingredients will give a long-term brightening effect if you use it on a regular base.

Orpheline 036 is described as a medium, warm strawberry with an illuminating radiance. I really think Rouge Bunny Rouge does a great job at describing their products. It really is a strawberry shade, a warm pink with a soft satin finish. It’s a very interesting shade, I don’t own any pink like this. I looked around in my stash and did some comparisons with the pinks I own. Closest to Orpheline is Illamasqua Tweak but it has more red. Orpheline is very warm compaired to the pinks I have. It’s not a true coral though, it has too much orange for that. Like I said, it looks dupeable but it’s more interesting than you’d might think! I really love the soft glowing satin finish. The trick must be the very fine pearl in it, it prevents the blush from looking dull, you sometimes have this issue with matte shades. The texture is very fine, it’s soft, smooth and silky to the touch. My brush didn’t kick up any powder either.

I went over my other blushes to compare texture and I came to the following conclusion: most of the matte/satin shades that I own have a drier texture. The Original Skin Blush is amazing when it comes to blending into the skin. While I love my Burberry blush (and it’s one of the smoothest, silkiest powders that I have) it can’t compete with the softness of Orpheline. It is just a bit more creamy and it makes such a difference on the skin. Orpheline is not really that sheer as a blush. It is actually pretty pigmented, giving the skin a pretty flush of colour. It also wears really well on me but I honestly don’t have a lot of issues with blush fading on me. Overall I really love my first Rouge Bunny Rouge blush, I’m definitely going to buy Florita when autumn starts. The only thing that I’m torn about is the amount of product you get. For me it’s great, I’ll never use up a blush any time soon, but for people that don’t hoard blushes like me, is 3.5 g enough? Don’t get me wrong though, the price/amount you get is just about right, it’s more about the amount itself. I think the average blush contains 4/5g of product. That is just nitpicking though because the blush itself is wonderful!

  1. Ahh your first RBR blush–I’m sooo jealous! I want this shade so bad–this one and Delicata! And softer/creamier than Burberry?!! I MUST try these!

  2. When I clicked over from Bloglovin I knew I was in trouble.. Better than Burberry! Ok, I’m in. I have to see! This one is a beauty and looks amazing on your skin tone. I wish RBR was more available in the US.

    • Oh yeah, I just wished they had more shades! It’s not readily available here eithert but you can find them on Beautybay now!

  3. Ok, I just saw this on Sunny and now on you and LOVE it. I think I will order this one for sure! SO PRETTY!

  4. I think of all the Rouge Bunny Rouge blushes, and quite possibly among all my blushes, Orpheline reigns supreme. The color is so pretty and flattering and the texture is so lovely on the skin. It looks marvelous on you!

  5. Better than Burberry?? 0_0 That pretty much means I NEED this!

    • Yeah, well in my humble opinion. These are softer and less dry. The Burberry blushes are great too though, but I like these a bit better!

  6. So pretty ! And I love RBR products ;)

  7. Pretty ! Ziet er inderdaad een goed werkbare blush uit en mooi gepigmenteerd !

  8. Ah, RBR again! One of my favourite pinks has to be NARS Deep Throat. This one looks lovely too! Reminds me of Dior Pink In Love :-)

    • Oh yeah, I love that one too, I do love the satin finish here more, it’s a bit more forgiving on the skin ;).

  9. Total prettiness! Can’t brain today, I have the dumb, hence the airhead comment… But hey, it really is a pretty blush! :-)

  10. I love RBR products, I bought my first one the other week. Can’t wait to get more! Even though it was a cream blush, the size issue is the same – I was expecting something like a NARS stick, instead it’s more like a fat lipstick. I don’t have a huge blush collection though so it should be more than enough.

    • Oh that’s great to know. I don’t know about the cream blushes, but Orpheline is pretty pigmented so you just need a tiny amount, that makes up to it.

  11. ben onder de indruk :)

  12. Isn’t this one AWESOME? I hope RBR will do more shades soon though. I am interested in another shade, but all the rest seem a little too pale for my taste ;)

  13. echt super pretty in de verpakking alleen al :D

  14. Just when I thought “whaw, that’s an okay price for such a pretty blush!”, you broke the weight news. Such a pity indeed; I am quite like you and really don’t hoard blushes. This does sound lovely though and I have been contemplating a RBR haul, so might take a look to find my color.

    • Yea, I still don’t really know about the quantity, it’s great for ppl with a lot of blush though. The blush itself is amazing though, I really hope they come out with more shades!

  15. Hij ziet er ook gewoon echt enorm smooth uit, alsof je met boter gaat smeren zo nice! De pigmentatie en de intensiviteit.. gurl. It blew me away! Ja, dat vind ik ook. Net zoals bij matte lipsticks, ze zijn altijd wat droger. Amazing dat deze romiger is, de lipstick van MAC heeft dat ook en dat maakt hem echt incredible!

    • Jep, hij is echt super zacht en zo fijn gewoon! Hij blijft gelukkig ook een hele dag zitten, vaak zijn die zachtere blushes snel weg.
