Samples | Rouge Bunny Rouge Fire Drops Embrace Of Cashmere & Seas Of Illuminations Sea Of Clouds




These two adorable pot samples came with my last Rouge Bunny Rouge order. Both contain enough for me to learn about the products, and obviously Rouge Bunny Rouge went extra miles for these sample containers with their logo and the printed labels attached. I like that.
Sampling them didn't lead to an additional purchase (I am on low-buy lately), but I occasionally reach for them whenever I feel like some extra glow. Not exactly the colors I would choose for my full size items, but they are pretty nonetheless.




Samples of
Fire Drops (Loose Glitter Pigment) in Embrace Of Cashmere
&
Sea Of Illuminations (Highlighting Liquid) in Sea Of Clouds


Rouge Bunny Rouge Embrace Of Cashmere swatch

Embrace of Cashmere is a shimmery champagne flashing a tinsy bit of green. The texture is very fine and even creamy yet it does not crease. I usually just put a little bit on my lid space blending with my finger for subtle definition and finish off with some eye liner and mascara. I personally would prefer something more distinctly taupe if I am to use a single color on my lids, so maybe I will pick up Caress Of Mink in the future.


Rouge Bunny Rouge Sea Of Clouds swatch

The texture of Sea Of Clouds is rather dreamy - it feels hydrating and seamlessly blends in to give a realistic glow despite the cold silvery hues. Initially I was worried that it would turn me into a cyborg (or worse, Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz), but that didn't happen. The opalescent Sea of Tranquility would be my first choice, and Sea of Clouds if I can afford another one. I love the natural and ethereal glow it adds to my complexion. It is a shame it is scented with a cucumber fragrance, though. (Why oh why)


Here is another swatch photo with both (because I forgot I had taken the pictures above before and took it again).



And I put together a very simple look using Embrace Of Cashmere and Sea Of Clouds. Believe the glow.

Rouge Bunny Rouge FOTD


Embrace Of Cashmere is also very handy to blend out a dark cream shadow and add more dimensions, as well as Sea Of Clouds to liven up my face when I skip foundation. They seem to be impressively long lasting even in the hot humid conditions. 


Have you tried these from Rouge Bunny Rouge?
What are some of your favorite pigment and liquid highlighters?

  1. I've realised a while ago that I don't use highlighters much. So, I've been going ooh and aah when I see those beautiful highlighters, liquid or powder... but I know never to buy them. I have, I think 2 or 3 highlighters, but I know that'll last me a lifetime! Hahaha!

    1. Although I always opt for highlighters than bronzers, I think you're right - only a very little is needed, so what I have would last me for a long long time if not forever! ;p
      Normally I reach for powder types more often because they are easier, but liquid ones do give a different kind of glow, which is worth a little more effort. :)

  2. I have Sea of Clouds and I looooooove it! It is one of the best highlighter I've ever encountered. The texture and finish are just divine..
    The finish looks really nice on you Lena!

    1. Thanks, Pam! I remember how beautiful it looked on you from your review. :)
      I think I'd stomach the cucumber scent and end up getting the Sea of Tranquility in the future. My GA Fluid Sheer 007 is very close but it is getting quite old, so I think I have an excuse. ;p

  3. These look lovely on you, I have EOC and use it a lot and had a sample of Sea of Clouds which I really like but prefer Sea of Tranquility on my skin as its got that bit of pink to it, RBR make such lovely liquid highlighters it would be great if they came out with some more shades.

    1. Thank you, Clare! :)
      I love how almost wet and silky the loose pigment feels yet it stays on!
      I think Sea of Tranquility would suit me better as well not to mention it seems to create a more subtle type of glow. I wouldn't mind having a bottle of Sea of Clouds, though! They seem very different in their unique ways.

  4. Ahh so pretty! You look stunning! Very elegant and put-together. I have Embrace of Cashmere and it's just stunning :) It's about the only loose eyeshadow that I am willing to use. I have samples of all their liquid highlighters but I haven't really tried them, because I am not very big on highlighters in general.

    1. Thank you so much, Sunny! <3
      I can't say I always wear highlighters but I sure like highlighters better than bronzers. It seems those three function all uniquely different, and I think the warm color (Sea of Showers) would look beautiful on you.
      I like cucumber scent but only when I eat it. I wish they were scented with something else. ;-)

  5. Embrace Of Cashmere is so pretty and seems to versatile. Those are some really nice samples, some of the best I've seen. :-)

    1. I think anyone could use a shade like Embrace Of Cashmere! RBR also has nice selections of their fragrance samples. I'm going to choose that next time. :)

  6. Gosh, that glow! So super pretty. I've yet to try anything from RBR, but I'm tempted everytime I see a review! :)

    1. Thanks, Jen!
      RBR has relatively smaller selections and seems to be quite careful with how they expand their lines, which is why I think their makeup is pretty much always on point!

  7. The Sea Of Clouds colour is so dreamy! I haven't seen anything like it that is just like that and doesn't cost an arm and a leg!

    1. Isn't it so pretty? ;) I still wish it came in a smaller container and costed a little less since you only use very little of it each time, but you're right - I think it is one of the best liquid highlighters out there!

  8. Oh, wow - both look heavenly. RBR names crack me up but I have to admit they're fitting in most instances!

    1. Hehe. I know. I like their fairy marketings actually although I wish the names were shorter for the blogging purposes. ;p
      It is a shame they are not readily available offline but their color descriptions are very accurate and I haven't seen ridiculous exaggerations from their product claims yet. :)

  9. The Tin Man! You crack me up! You look angelic here. Sea of Cucumbers (ha!) for the win! I've been OD-ing on Becca pressed shimmering skin perfectos lately. I picked up Champagne Pop while I was visiting your city, and ordered a favorites kit when I got home that contained a mini Opal pressed and a mini Opal liquid. I've been loving the liquid Opal so much I've been putting some on after I finish my nighttime skincare routine. It makes very little sense but it makes me happy and isn't hurting anyone, so I figure, hell, let's live a little! ;)

    1. Aw, thanks Kristen! ;D
      I love those Persian cucumbers and eat them almost daily but I do not like cucumber scent in my cosmetics. Period. Yet I might make an exception and end up with a bottle of this. It IS nice.
      I've tried the Opal from Becca and it was a bit too dark and warm for me to love daily, but I can imagine how beautiful it would look on you. And you put it on in nighttime? That's some real "Boudoi", girl. ;D

  10. Oh they look amazing Lena!!! That's fantastic they gave you such samples and in nice little jars! I'm always up for a good cream shadow and that illuminator although white is just gorgeous! I totally would love to own one of that tone!

    1. The eyeshadow is actually loose pigment and RBR also offers a very nice cream shadow stick duo. The brand is European and seems to be slowly branching out these days. They offer international shipping as well if you're interested. :)

  11. Gorgeous! But like Lily, I rarely use highlighters. I don't know...I just forget? Or don't care most of the time hahaha!

    1. Thanks! :)
      I guess what you need is a cream blush duo that has a highlighter in it (but I think you already have some..? ;p).

  12. Ooh I believe! Lol. Love the look you did. I love highlighters but often they're the thing I skip when I'm in a hurry :( I used to like liquids but now I prefer powder highlighters, mostly cuz they're faster to brush on

    1. Hehe thanks, Meiko! ;)
      I don't wear them all the time, either. After all, it is an extra step! And for that I prefer a pressed powder one although liquid type does look different on skin. LOL
      I do reach for a highlighter on a day I only wear sunscreen with white cast (like the day I took the pic) otherwise my skin would look so flat and lifeless.

  13. So glowy that it flashes back!! :D Embrace of Cashmere looks fantastic! I bet you can use it as a cheek highlighter as well. The sample size would last a really, really long time. I doubt you'll ever need to buy a full-size any time soon. ;D

    Very lovely and polished look you put together, Lena! Love!

    1. Embrace If Cashmere does seem to work as an highlighter especially on deeper complexion. And you're so right. I only need very little each time and I still have tons left, which is why I kinda wish the highlighters came in smaller size bottles. :)

      Thanks, Jaa! :)

      Embrace Of Cashmere is a sophisticated neutral shimmer that would work on anyone. :)

  15. Wow, Sea of Clouds looks so gorgeous on your cheeks, Lena! I love highlighters, I need to check out the RBR website to see how expensive it is!
