Rouge Bunny Rouge Bronzing Glow Liquid +

Now that summer is officially here, I bring to you stuff that makes me happy as of late, and as you all know...it's BRONZER TIME !! 

So I know a lot of people are out there on the market looking for something that's gives them that sunkissed glow. I don't blame you, whatsoever. So I ordered Rouge Bunny Rouge's bronzing liquid to see what it's all about...

Packaging: It's in a tall, slender pump, clear frosted packaging like their illuminators.

Texture and formula: I'm personally biased towards liquid bronzers, as it tends to look more natural, than powder. It's definitely lovely on my skin as a soft sheen, when sheerly applied. So I tried layering this on, and the shimmer is definitely more apparent when layered. The formula in of itself is a runny liquid, so it's easy to spread out quickly. It takes a couple of seconds to set, which isn't bad at all because I do like an extra moment to adjust the coverage. 

Color: It's like a golden honey-light caramel color, which I know will work gloriously on paler skintones. I know it's very hard to find a bronzer that doesn't make you look like an oompa loompa, but for those of you who are very fair, this won't look orange at all. 

Size and Price: 1.75 fluid ounces; $100 (approximately given the conversion rates from GBP to USD)

Onto the photos :)

The bronzer sheerly applied on the inner part of my arm, where I'm palest.

oddly enough in this picture you can see the shimmer when layered.

Is this worth having? I think so if you're fair in skintone because you can use a small amount and it gives a nice warm bronze glow. If you're like me or darker: it's nice as a soft sheen (illuminating), but used as a bronzer, you do have to layer it. I don't mind the shimmer when it comes to layering it, but some may.


  1. I actually love the pretty shimmer this gives off! Very nice product!

  2. I don't mind it either, but I know some people shy from shimmer.

    your reply is the fastest i've ever gotten. LOL i luv it <3

  3. I like the fact that it looks so subtle...tanned girls don't exactly need more bronzer but good illuminator :O

  4. That is gorgeous and I love, love, love the shimmer!

  5. @poseylass i could use a tiny bit more color. it's a nice illuminator too :)

    @makeup merriment i love the shimmer too :D

  6. OK you just HAD to throw in how great it is for fair skin! GRRR!!! I have so many lemmings right now!! I still seem to be having an issue applying the RBR highlighter though. I need to work on my liquid product application techniques :-(

  7. They both look beautiful, but can you explain how you use them? I have Bella Bronze but every time I look at it I just don't know what to do with it!

  8. Love this but I think the price tag is a little steep for me!

  9. I know what you mean when it comes to the price tag...but I'd prefer to pay a bit more for a liquid bronzer than a powder one (ex: Guerlain terra inca), but that's probably just me.

  10. I'd rather save my pennies for the LMDB kabuki that I need to get now. :p Actually, I enjoyed this post thanks for featuring something new.
