I’ve been bad… really bad… holding onto a secret for so long…. This little jar of silky miracle has been in my possession for… oh I don’t know… a month? Two? You know how it is… you dust it on as the final step of your makeup and dash out the door. It is not until you get to the office or wherever life takes you that you realize hmm… your makeup looks good! And then you hoard it… like a.. oh wait, that’s squirrel… They say bunnies don’t have big mental capacities, maybe that’s why I’m having difficulty discerning the true secret to my perfect makeup. But they sure are soft… diaphanously, impalpably, soft.
When you have as many powders as I do (take a peek here), it can sometimes get confusing. The beauty geek in me is always questioning what makes this powder better than the others in my stash. But invariably, when I go back and forth to compare, I get confused. So I’m just going with my gut on this… because the gut is always right. I love Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Impalpable Finishing Powder in Diaphanous. Love it. Covet it. Hoard it.
Big big words, but every single syllable is on point. This is a very fine loose powder that is translucent, goes on subliminally light and silky. It seems to float over the skin, blurring imperfections, and helping to mattify in a soft luminous way. Although it is described as a finishing powder, it works wonderfully to set my makeup and keep shine at bay. Of course, these qualities are reminiscent of my beloved La Mer The Powder in Translucent (reviewed here) and YSL Souffle D’Eclat (reviewed here)… but Rouge Bunny Rouge lasts longer than La Mer; and the transparent shade is universally flattering (as opposed to YSL’s pink hue).
Rouge Bunny Rouge Impalpable Finishing Powder in Diaphanous retails for EUR40 for 7gm, making it EUR5.71 per gram or USD7.37 per gram. This is the most expensive loose powder that I’ve encountered so far, and that is the only reason I’m not recommending this more vehemently. But at least this powder delivers that ideal dream finish. Soft, velvety, bunny dreams.
