Rouge Bunny Rouge Milk Aquarelle Liquid Foundation

Milk Aquarelle Liquid Foundation is another reason to love the brand Rouge Bunny Rouge!

It has a satin finish that looks ultra-smooth on the skin with a subtle glow.  Upon application, it looks semi-matte but within minutes, it gets absorbed and looks softer.  The first time I applied it, it hit me - this is really great for pin-up looks because it just looks so clean.

I tried applying this using different tools - a foundation brush, my beauty blender and even my fingers.  No matter what I used, I still ended up with an airbrush-like effect.  I suppose it's because the texture is so light and easy to blend.  Its one of the foundations that I've tried which feels nearly weightless.

Coverage is medium and by far the best.   With Milk Aquarelle, I could get away with not wearing any concealer - I use concealer almost all the time and I'm stoked that I can totally skip this step.  If I'm having a really bad day, the most I would do is wear a highlighter on my dark under eye circles, nothing more.  It covers blemishes extremely well but the rest of the face still looks natural.  You know what I mean? 

I like using this in the evening or when its cold because the formula is hydrating.  It won't get cakey at all.  During the day, I do find myself having to blot after three to four hours of wear but with everything else this foundation does, this is forgivable.

I read a lot of reviews that agree this is a great product however the price tag is a bit steep.  Yes, it is quite pricey but it's also not your ordinary foundation.  Besides, if there's something I'm not stingy with, its foundation.  I just love how it transforms my skin into a clean, flawless canvas... so yes, as soon as I'm done with the other foundations I have (some of which are still unused!) I will take the plunge.

Milk Aquarelle comes five shades:  Almond Milk Parfait (pale yellow-toned beige), Hazelnut Milk Parfait (medium tawny beige), Coconut Milk Parfait (milky-pale pink beige), Chestnut Milk Parfait (warm, pale ochre beige) and Cashew Milk Parfait (medium, warm olive beige).
