Anglo-Russian based cosmetics and fragrance brand Rouge Bunny Rouge has just arrived in the U.S. and it is the epitome of luxury. Founded by Moscow-based creative director, Alexandra De Montfort, Rouge Bunny Rouge aims to take beauty a step further than just covering up a blemish, or trying to lengthen short lashes. It’s more about looking through the lens of fantasy… grown up fantasy. The beautiful packaging is filled with high-quality products that are different in look, feel and function to much else on the market.
Every product springs from the colorful imagination of De Montfort and each is the star of its own fantastical little tale, set in the Enchanted Garden – the mythological home of Princess Rouge and an enthralling red bunny who has unleashed the stories and illustrations that animate the entire brand.
Fire Drops Loose Glitter Pigment is inspired by the Sparkling Fireflies that team around the Agni Tree in the Enchanted Garden’s densest forest. Succulence of Dew Sheer Lipstick was created to match the translucently delicate butterflies found nearby. The Prelude in the Clouds Aqua Primer should be used “rambunctiously,” like the wily Rain-Pixies, who harness it to keep their skin looking dewy.
With early years at Yohji Yamamoto, Max Mara and Pout, De Montfort believes that through the power of makeup women can be transformed into whatever they want to be. In 2006 Rouge Bunny Rouge was launched in Moscow. Today the company is UK based and is in the process of transforming from a cult secret to an international beauty brand.
The philosophy of Rouge Bunny Rouge is that skin should radiate beauty. Texture is paramount so every product is effortless to apply (like the cream eye shadows and silky lipsticks), is lightweight and feels comfortable on the skin. Ground-breaking technologies paired with the latest ingredients and actives ensures that skin is repaired, improved, protected and long-lasting.
Then there are the fragrances. Both are brand new (just released last month) and cost $129 each. The Allegria is a green floral woody scent. The fragrance is unlike anything I have ever experienced before and it’s completely captivating. Top notes are bergamot, sour orange, grapefruit and passion fruit. The mid-notes include blackcurrant leaf, basil and mimosa absolute. The base notes include cedarwood, moss and musk.
The other scent is called Muse and is a woody floral cedarwood. The top notes are bergamot, freesia, gardinia and green leaves. The mid notes include jasmin and moss and the base notes are comprised of musk, amber gris and cedarwood.
