Rouge Bunny Rouge

Rouge Bunny Rouge: "
For weeks now I have heard online, whispers of a new, fantastic cosmetics company. Appearing sporadically on blogs and on twitter, the whispers intrigued me. Inspired by Victorian fairytales I heard. Originally from Russia, ooh how exotic. You cant currently buy it in any UK stores, interesting and exclusive eh. Its very expensive, definitely high end stuff, certainly.

 Rouge Bunny Rouge had become my new fascination, not purely because of the seemingly exclusive nature of their products (and their price tags) but more because of the innovative nature of their items.

I awoke from a peaceful slumber one fine morning  and found to have in my possession a variety of different Rouge Bunny Rouge items. How they had got there, I could not say. It were as if by magic. I spotted a light glimmer of what appeared to be fairy dust gleaming in the sunlight which was peaking through my window and realised that the fairies from the enchanted garden had glided silently into my bedroom that evening and left their magical lotions and potions for me to find upon waking.

Ok not really, but this is exactly the imagery Rouge Bunny Rouge evokes, with its fairy tale esq descriptions of products which evoke images of fairies, princesses, enchanted woods and magic. 

Evocative descriptions aside, Rouge Bunny Rouge really does have a fantastic array of products to offer, my favourite being their Decadent Duo range. Ever had the issue of trying to find a blush and lipgloss that actually compliment each other? Search no more ladies, Decadent Duo can solve the problem for you.  
The duo range is basically a 2 in 1 product. 1 Physical product, 2 functions. One end of the wand contains a delicate liquid blush whilst the other contains a lipgloss. Im a massive fan of liquid/cream blush anyway as I feel it gives you a more natural glow as opposed to being too matte.

The blush has a brush wand for application, though I prefer to put it on my fingers before blending it into my cheeks. The Gloss was silky, shiny and moisturising and complimented the blush perfectly. 

What a genius idea eh! Genius if you know what you are using. I must admit, it took me a while to realise it was a blush and gloss- I had thought it was a dual lipgloss to begin with…

Another firm favourite is their Lip Potion in Devilish Nectar. Blended with spicy essential oils (I can definitely smell cinnamon, cardamom and chilli for sure) and jojoba, it increases the blood flow to your lips leaving them flushed, softened and irresistible to any prince!

You can currently only buy Rouge Bunny Rouge on the website Zuneta.com, but be warned, you will need to save up your hard earned gold coins before indulging, with the Decadent Duo’s selling for £28,  and The Lip potion £24 they are definitely little luxuries. 

OR, You can just enter my competition to win over £100 worth of Rouge Bunny Rouge goodies!
You can win  a Decadent Duo in Rumba Cubana RRP £28, A Lose Glitter Pigment, Fire Drop RRP £24, and The Bronzing Gold Liquid, RRP £64.

All you have to do to enter is follow my blog through Google Friends Connect on the right hand side of the page, follow me on twitter @sarah_berryman1 and leave a comment below with your contact details and tell me what mystical creature you would most like to be!

The competition closes at 12pm on Friday 5th August.

Paulina Carcach Alexa Handbag Review & Giveaway

Paulina Carcach Alexa Handbag Review & Giveaway: "

When we look for handbags we not only look for style but we want great value as well.  It’s not hard to find handbags for hundreds and hundreds of dollars, but with the economy as it is, we want more value for our money. It’s most womens  quest (addiction perhaps)  to have every color of handbag to match our shoes and outfits and that can be costly. Is there a solution?

Paulina Carcach has created some of the loveliest handbags  that are not only feminine, modern and stylish, but they also give you great value. One of their gorgeous handbags is the Alexa.

This satchel features polished plated gold hardware and pleating at the front. Rolled handles, detachable shoulder strap, and top zip main compartment closure. Luxurious Eggplant Calfskin Distress Leather. The leather is Full-grain and it has a beautiful distress texture and pretty polish finish. The interior is fully lined with contrast navy blue satin fabric and features one zip pocket on one side, cellphone pocket and multifunctional pocket on the opposite wall. It has one 22” approx. convertible/detachable shoulder strap, and two top handles that have an approx. 5.5” drop.

Approximate Dimensions: 15″W (38cm) x 12″H (30cm) x 5″D (12cm)

I received the Alexa in eggplant. This is an absolutely gorgeous color. Purples and eggplants seem to always be in style and you must have a least one purple handbag in your collection. The Alexa is a rock star not only for it’s looks and function but also for it’s value.  The Alexa is extremely well made and attention is given to details. It has beautiful pleats on the front and back and has studs on the bottom of the purse to protect it from wear.  It’s made out of a very soft leather that’s nice and smooth to the touch.  The Alexa is a fairly large purse yet not overwhelming. It looks heavy but is surprising light and that’s  important to me. Carrying a heavy purse and then loading it with your stuff can fatigue your shoulders.  This is what happens to me so I tend to make sure the purse is fairly lightweight before I consider purchasing it.  The interior has a beautiful royal blue satin lining with a zipper compartment and two pouches.  The handbag is very roomy so you can really pack a lot of things into it. I also really like the shoulder strap, it’s wide enough so it rests comfortably on your shoulder without feeling any pressure.  The handles are also comfortable to hold, they are strong and sturdy yet not too bulky in your hand.  The style is such that it will be in style for years to come.

Paulina Carcach has a beautiful Spring collection that is a must to view.  There are so many beautiful colors to choose from , delicious oranges, eye popping greens, breath taking blues , cheerful yellows and gold and so many more. They also carry sleek and styling belts and diaper bags too.  Every handbag is so beautiful I want them all.

Paulina Carcach would like to offer one lucky reader the chance to win an Alexa bag in their choice of color. Thank you very much Paulina.
