Review, Swatch - Rouge Bunny Rouge Precious Velvet Flawless Face Powder Piano Forte (002)

I needed a powder foundation for touch-ups at that time, but had to settle with Precious Velvet Flawless Face Powder, which is the only powder makeup offered by Rouge Bunny Rouge.
Why I didn't buy one from other brands?
No, no, you don't understand. It had to be something from RBR since I was making a "Rouge Bunny Rouge haul".
(I thought we knew each other better than this?)

Rouge Bunny Rouge Precious Velvet Flawless Face Powder
Piano Forte (002)

RBR Flawless Face Powder comes in a sturdy round case that looks like a mini hat box, and now I keep my barbie pins in it.

The compact itself is simple and elegant with the usual fuzzy flowery prints that I adore so much.
Unfortunately, it comes with a rather flimsy puff that is thin with little flexibility.

I chose Piano Forte (002), which is a "pale milky beige with subtle apricot tones".
This is the lightest shade from the four shades available.

Actually, the color match is great.
This is definitely a yellow-based color but just so enough to correct the uneven tones.
It is probably the prettiest beige I have seen in a while.

You can't really see anything on my arm, but this is how silky and light it goes on and melds with my skin.
I put it on rather heavily, too.

I was hoping RBR Flawless Face Powder would be enough to cover the blotchy uneven spots that would show often in the middle of day (or those super red cheeks after a few drinks), but it wasn't the case.
I am not saying this powder is bad or anything, because it is quite great for what it is.
It is just that Precious Velvet Flawless Face Powder is not what I was looking for except that it comes in a pretty compact that I can easily carry in my makeup bag.
Naturally I put it aside and soon started carrying some other powder foundation.

Then one day, when I used Flawless Face Powder to set my foundation, it finally dawned on me.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Precious Velvet Flawless Face Powder is a setting powder!!
I never understood the "medium coverage" claim before, but it is true Flawless Face Powder adds a light veil of coverage which is more than I would get my translucent loose powder.

Unlike other talc based pressed powder, Flawless Face Powder feels much comfortable on since it contains rice powder.
I have recently mentioned how it subtly corrects a foundation tone and evens out the complexion beautifully.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Precious Velvet Flawless Powder is also great for "no-makeup" makeup looks. 
Since the finish is truly natural and non-powdery, I find it goes nicely with dramatic lip colors, too.

It seems the price widely varies depending where you order from, but I got mine from Beautyhabit
I am not sure if I want to repurchase although now I am enjoying this pressed powder tremendously in this harsh winter.
It is only because I prefer using loose powder to set my makeup in general, but I would certainly pack my Flawless Face Powder for travel.
I would highly recommend this for someone with dry skin as well.

Thanks for reading.
