A couple of months ago, HauteLook had Rouge Bunny Rouge on sale, which means I pretty much maxed out what I could fit into two orders (this and a bunch of eyeshadows), and this was one of the items I bought. According to the brand, their highlighting powder is supposed to feel “feather-light and creamy” with a “natural, even and radiant look.” The powder had semi-sheer, buildable coverage that could be worn as a veil of color when applied with a more feathery brush (like a fan brush) or semi-sheer to semi-opaque if applied with a more traditional blush brush. It had a soft, blendable consistency that was a little powdery and kicked up excess product unless used with a very soft, feathery brush. On the skin, it didn’t emphasize pores, and the sheen was surprisingly subtle, given how it appeared merely swatched on the arm. I’m light-medium with yellow undertones, so it didn’t add a lot of noticeable color, though it is like a subtler bronzer on my skin tone, and it didn’t have a white base, so it didn’t look chalky. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading.
