Pressed powder is in the same league as foundation for me...I cannot seem to get enough. When placing my last Rouge Bunny Rouge order with Beautyhabit, I was very curious about the Precious Velvet Flawless Face Powder but couldn't find swatches of the four colors offered anywhere! Instead of ordering a compact blindly, I was provided with samples and am excited to share them with the blogosphere.
Retailing for $45 and designed to provide medium coverage, here is what Rouge Bunny Rouge says about their powder:
Effortless radiance and sophistication in a pressed powder, with a texture so light it melds with your skin, making it naturally flawless. An advanced micronisation process guarantees a combination of a velvety and creamy texture for ultimate comfort, perfect adherence, smoothness and an even finish. Innovative ingredients include Papaya Fruit Extract as a natural “face lift” and skin softener, plus Hyssop Extract with soothing properties. Rice Powder imparts a perfectly natural, non-shiny finish. Compose your own concerto of impeccable loveliness.
The powder comes in four shades:
1. Piano (001) which is pale beige with peach tones
2. Piano Forte (002) which is pale milky beige with subtle apricot tones
3. Allegro (003) which is a natural rose beige
4. Adagio (004) which is a honeyed beige
|From L-R: 1. Piano, 2. Piano Forte, 3. Allegro and 4. Adagio in direct sunlight|
|From top to bottom: 1. Piano, 2. Piano Forte, 3. Allegro and 4. Adagio in shade|
While I haven't had the chance to wear it on my face all day, I can attest to the fact that the powder is indeed very smooth and finely milled. I hope that you find these swatches to be helpful!
