Rouge Bunny Rouge Succulence Of Dew Sheer Lipstick, Perfume Of His Gaze


Rouge Bunny Rouge Sheer Lipstick Perfume Of His Gaze

The names of Rouge Bunny Rouge things are always poetically mouthful. God forbid sheer lipstick be just sheer lipstick. It is Succulence Of Dew, ok? And this brown color shall be called "Perfume Of His Gaze". A sheer brown lipstick could be the most boring object in the world, but suddenly it becomes so mysterious and irresistible. 
I love sheer lipsticks and didn't have a brown one in my collection (really, really). Plus there was a 20% off code with free shipping (this is offered on Wondegondigo blog and still available). I wonder who could resist such a combination.






When it comes to color descriptions though, Rouge Bunny Rouge is always on point.  Succulence Of Dew Sheer Lipstick Perfume Of His Gaze is described as "Wet effect, Medium transparency, cool toned rose taupe", and I don't feel that anything should be added. Perfume Of His Gaze is exactly that.

Well, it is brown, of course. It even resembles so many medium brown lipsticks that I owned in the 90's that were perceived as "My Lips But Better" shades (Back then people thought many things differently). I would instantly cringe if I had to wear them now. "Ew, that's so 90's. And I don't even have dark brown lip liners to go with.."
But, Perfume Of His Gaze doesn't make me feel that way although I don't completely exclude the possibility of myself being hypnotized by fairy words of Rouge Bunny Rouge.

The formulation is truly gorgeous. In fact, it is so nice that my other favorite sheer lipstick formulas like Dior Addict and NARS Sheer Lipstick pale in comparison.
It has a perfect amount of slip, a very faint rose-like fragrance, and no paraben. It is moisturizing and hydrating for a long time, actually until you need to put on another coat - a rare thing regardless of the finish, you know? 
I wouldn't say it is all that sheer, though. It still provides a decent coverage. I guess (by the year 2015 standard) if it isn't completely opaque like NARS Audacious, it is a sheer lipstick.

To me Perfume Of His Gaze is like the milkier browner version of NARS Sheer Lipstick Damage (reviewed). I need a flawless yet sheer base and certain eyeshadow pairings to pull it off. Which means a few extra steps in my routine, but I don't mind. I like this lipstick.

  1. It is indeed so beautiful, Lena!
    I own one RBR lipstick ( Whim of Mine ) and I love it so much, but it melted inside the bullet and I am not a fan of depoting make up and applying lip product using lip brush :/ and I am too lazy to firm it up, I am actually thinking to simply repucharse to eliminate the hassle xD

    1. "Whim of Mine" is another great name! I am actually interested in trying some of the old colors (which are still avail on the web site), too.
      Too bad it deformed in the tube. Maybe it was too soft in consistency to begin with? ;o

  2. This is a lovely shade! I quite like brown lipsticks, more so when they are sheer and have a bit of red in them. Clinique Black Honey is the closest that I have to this.

    1. Very often, opacity & finish are more important than the color itself, I think. ;)
      I have Black Honey as well, but it looks more plum than brown. Love it how it looks on me, though.

  3. Thats a lovely shade on you, I've yet to buy any of the reformulated RBR lipsticks but that is going on my list :)

    1. Thanks, Clare. :)
      I think the formula is probably the best out of all sheer-to-medium lipsticks I've tried in years. I haven't tried the old ones but am interested in them since they are still offered on the website.

  4. It's definitely not a 90s brown, Lena. This one looks really pretty on you... I might even be tempted to pick one up for myself!

    1. Thank you so much, Lily!
      I think it will looks beautiful on you. Your lips are naturally pink, so the color would be interesting and soft, I imagine. :)

  5. Hey Lena, you wear this so well! The only shade that tickles my fancy from the line is probably the bright fuchsia pink. I really can't pull of brown like at all! I enjoy seeing it on others tho :)

    1. Thank you, Sunny! :)
      The new colors covers the all spectrums and look very pretty. That fuchsia pink is the star of the range, I think.

  6. It looks so modern and beautiful on you. I adore this formula, too. Thank you so much for the shout out and I'm so glad you got to use the code.

    PoHG is slightly grey on my lips. I think the slight translucency of the formula allows my blue lips to shine through to make the grey so strong when I wear it. Sounds gross, but I think it is such a modern and beautiful shade!!

    1. No, thank YOU so much for offering such a nice DC code for us. I also got the Starina blush totally enabled by you. It is a beautiful shade, too!
      I think Perfume Of His Gaze looks deeper and very pretty on you. Love sheer lipsticks for that. They seem to work differently on each one of us. :)

  7. Beautiful! I don't ever grab for browns, but perhaps I should reconsider...

    1. This one is definitely very interesting and easy to pull. I am relieve to have filled the gap in my lipstick rainbow with such a pretty one. ;p

  8. Perfume of His Gaze... ah it sounds so poetic! This brown shade is definitely not 90's and it's so pretty on you Lena. I haven't worn a brown lippie in awhile. Perhaps I shall dig out my Chanel Rouge allure in Farouche.

    1. Thank you very much, Rowena! <3
      Chanel Farouche is a beautiful color. Ah, Chanel does it best when it comes to colors, and for that I tend to forgive their formulations sometimes. But seriously, I think you'd enjoy the Succulence of Dew formula a lot. A bit excessive it sounds, but it really is hydrating on lips. :)

  9. I thought it was going to be that 90's type of brown, too, but it actually pulls a really nice everyday color on you! Even better than the Dior Addict huh? I might just have to check it out then! :D

    1. I love Dior Addict, but yeah, definitely better. :) And way better than Chanel Rouge Coco Shine if you're wondering.
      The color range is somewhat limited but filled with all the gorgeous basics. Very well done. :)

  10. Really pretty on you Lena! I don't know, I went through a RBR phase a couple of years ago and it promptly ended hahaha. Never felt the pull to buy anything again for some reason!

    1. Thank you, Tracy! :)
      I love their pressed powder formulations (everything is so well done), but it's not like I feel I must have everything. They don't really churn out seasonal collections aggressively so maybe that's another reason.

  11. Girl you really sold this. Makes me want to run out and buy it now, lol! I've never tried anything from Rouge Bunny Rouge - it was on my radar a bit last year but then I kind of forgot about the brand. Thanks for resurrecting my interest. xo

    1. Haha thank you, Kimmy!
      Glad to help. :) Do try their powders, eyeshadows, blushes, and primers. They are really great (Quality wise, I've never been disappointed by them) :)

      Delete
  12. LMAO. Your intro cracked me up because I can't with these names. Maybe I'd be friendlier if RBR had a counter like everyone else but I believe most people when they say it's good stuff.

    This looks great but I'm not seeing too much brown! No browns for me as I've already spent almost a decade on them and it's time to make up for lost time with actual pretty colours, lol.

    1. LOL. Yes, the names are a bit too much even for me. But packaging and more importantly the quality make the brand work for me. For a brand always going for the most girlish names in the world (creatively, too), the colors are quite complex and never shallow. I love RBR for that as well. :)

  13. This kind of name would go so well with the new (and annoying) revlon love-is-on ad tactics...I am imagining Antonio Bandera (or Fabio) as the poster man. This color looks quite pretty and office friendly though.

    1. Ahahaha, true, but hey I love both brands. ;D
      Personally, I think RBR should keep this girly fantasy vibe going. It somewhat works well with their well executed product lines.
      But honestly, I'd like to made a PDF file with all the RBR names one day.

  14. Perfume of His Gaze...

    Right... what a name!

    LOL. At least the colour looks pretty on you! It looks moisturising as well

    1. It is a great name! Actually all the names from the lipstick range sound like they popped out of romance novels, which I don't mind at all!

      But all the jokes aside, it is a great lipstick, both the color and the formula! :)

      Delete
  15. Oh such a wonderful color and that has to be the most amazing name ever :D
    Rosy taupe sounds so incredibly wonderful and even though I´m not a huge fan of sheer lipsticks I know I would LOVE this cause it looks so stunning :)
    you are so darn adorable btw :)

    1. Thank you so much! :)
      Maybe the folks at RBR have special eyes to see colors. Once they say it is a rose taupe, I can't see it any other way. LOL. It is a beautiful shade and will suit anyone. This one is not exactly sheer, either. Still gives a great coverage but still lets your natural lip color play a part, which is actually my favorite kind of lipstick finish. :)

  16. Hells yes! This is gorgie-pants! You look ridiculously slammin'. I own and love NARS Damage so this would be a no-brainer buy for me as well. Plus I live for brown-toned lipsticks. They work for me. Maybe it's a whole "earth thang" with green eyeballs and then brown lips being the "soil" on the earth plane of my face?! I don't know. I swear I haven't been drinking! OMG, you are excellent! "It is Succulence Of Dew, ok?" I'm dying! :D

    1. Thank you, Kristen! :D
      Definitely use Belly's code before it's gone. It think it is good until August. I wonder if I can use the same code again, because I want some more... ;p Neutral/warm lipsticks look so awesome on you and now I understand why after your metaphor.
      All those long RBR names make me cringe a bit, but I still love what they are doing. It would have been all together horrible if the quality didn't live up to the fancy names. I also learned a lot of birds names thanks to their eyeshadows. LOL

  17. Ack, gorgeous. I love how glossy it is. And thanks for the no-paraben heads up. I think you're enabling :P But seriously, that shine! *swoons*

    1. Thank you so much, Larie! I think you should get this one (and use the Belly code before it expires. Good till August) rather than a Dior Addict, to think about it..? It is shiny but not slippery. A best, really. ;D
