ROUGE BUNNY ROUGE CLAIMS
This fluid Tinted Moisturiser gives your skin seamless, radiant glow and quietly underlines your natural beauty. The sublimely light texture refreshes with a high percentage of water and absorbs quickly, leaving an imperceptible film that veils small imperfections.
Loaded with botanicals and skin protective ingredients, our Tinted Moisturiser nourishes, hydrates and protects your skin against negative environmental factors like pollution and UVB rays. It includes Vitamin A and E which have anti-ageing and anti-oxidant properties; Malachite Extract is rich in copper and detoxifies the skin; it is also anti-oxidant. Smithsonite Extract provides natural UVB protection and is rich in Zinc, an essential mineral for the skin that aids healing. Laminaria Digitata Extract (Oarweed, a seaweed rich in calcium and potassium) fights fatigue, reinforcing the cells’ natural defences and is anti-bacterial. Hyaluronic Acid and PCA attract and bind moisture into the skin, preventing and treating dehydration. Botanical Squalene (from olives) prevents water loss by helping repair the hydro-lipidic film whilst maintaining tone and elasticity and Prunus Extract (from the Cherry Tree) is rich in Isoflavones to naturally improve firmness.

PRICE & AVAILABLITY
€42, £36, $55 Rouge Bunny RougeBeauty Bay

THE BASICS
Rouge Bunny Rouge Tinted Moisturiser is available in three shades: Adansonia, Sequoia & Quercus. It comes in a classy, black and white sturdy tube with 30ml of product. I received samples of all three shades, the original packaging can be viewed here.

MY OPINION
As I have mentioned in my two earlier Rouge Bunny Rouge reviews, I am really impressed by what this brand has to offer. The Original Skin Blush and Loose Glitter Pigments are definitely must-have products that beat some amazing brands out there.
Considering all this I had high expectations from the Tinted Moisturiser considering my all-time favourite is Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint, it was a hard competition to win. On the positive side, RBR Tinted Moisturiser comes with a lot of skin benefits, so many, that some just baffle my unscientific mind. You can read all that in their claims above. Parts that are less technical for my mind includes that it has UVB protection, provides moisture and Vitamin A & E have anti-ageing properties.
I find this tinted moisturiser slightly less fluffier and airy in consistency in comparison to Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint and also providing a li'l less coverage than that. It does a good job to even out the skin, giving a uniform tone! It does add a touch of radiance, is moisturising and also quite lightweight and non-greasy. A good thing is tit doesn't fade out through the day.
The major drawback I would say is the colour range. There are three shades, with names so hard to remember. I was thinking my match would be the second lightest shade, Sequoia, but surprisingly Adansonia (lightest shade) was the best match; which made me wonder what would be a good match for skin tones lighter than me, because I always fall under the first or second lightest shade in the foundation range. But, Sequoia is quite close to it and I am sure I could wear this in Summer without looking off. 
If this was the first tinted moisturiser I had tried I might have loved it, since the colour matches my tone, is moisturising, yet does not break me out and provides an even, radiant skin. Since Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint is my HG product, I can’t help comparing it. I can get a 40ml tube Liz Earle for €25 with slightly better coverage and RBR’s 30ml tube costs €42.

RATING



I would say 42 EUR is a big price to pay for this!
