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.
lol, I completely understand your love for powders, I’d love to own lots of them! I’d never heard of Rouge Bunny Rouge’s powder before, and after reading your review, I’m not sure if it’s a good or bad thing that you recommended it so! I guess it’s good for my wallet that we don’t get Rouge Bunny Rouge products here 😛
Does it come with a powder puff? I have a blush from Paul and Joe that comes with a powder puff, and it reminds me of a bunny tail, all fluffy and soft, lol so I thought it’d be the perfect applicator for this powder 😛
You can order RBR through their website, and I believe they are now available in the US! Hear all that money flapping away? LOL! It doesn’t come with a powder puff, and this is so fine, i’m not sure if a puff is the most economical way to apply it… but i love that bunny tail imagery!
I love this powder too! Completely agree on the more-than-finishing powder powers! And is that the original skin primer I see? Really been loving that one recently, though for some reason I didn’t like it so much when I first got it months ago.
Oh gosh, I’ve banned myself from buying any more finishing powders because I have so many and it takes forever for them to die!! I’m on a mission to use up these powders and imagine the satisfaction. LOL!
