I purchased Edward Bess Compact Rouge in Island Rose some time ago after seeing it on Sarah from Dempeaux.com . Zuneta had free international shipping at the time, so I jumped at the chance to try something from the luxe UK line [edit: it is a US line] that everyone was talking about.
Island Rose is a medium mauve rose that sheers out easily on the cheeks. On the lips it looks more like a sheer pale pink with a creamy finish and subtle sheen. I really like the dewy finish on the cheeks particularly when my skin is looking dry and dull (hello winter!), and also the fact that it is non drying on the lips- but I do find that this type of finish tends to fade quickly on the skin in the warmer months. It’s definitely a winter or Autumn blush
I’ve forgotten exactly how much I purchased this for (Zuneta has since closed down). You can purchase it from Neiman Marcus (38 USD), Beautybay.com (for a whopping 55AUD), or Strawberrynet.com (currently on sale for 35 AUD)- either way it is not cheap.myfunnyvalentine on Mar 4th, 2014 in Blush, Reviews, Swatches | 99700 comments.

Hello beautiful people!
I haven’t done a haul post for awhile so I thought it would be fun to show you what’s turned up in my mail box in the last 2 weeks. Plus, I’ve been itching to show you guys how pretty everything is!
The first photograph is the contents of my Neiman Marcus package (I used Shopaholiques mail forwarding service as usual because they don’t accept non-US credit cards).
So we have…
– Issey Miyake L’eau Dissey Purse spray : I basically live in L’eau D’issey and I’ve gotten sick of lugging around my 50mL bottle and continually losing the cap.
– NARS Grand Palais Eyeshadow Duo
– Edward Bess Compact Rouge in Island Rose for lips and cheeks
– NARS Outremer Single Eyeshadow
– Jack Black Vanilla and Lavender intense therapy lip balm: the scent is interesting.. reminds me exactly of how the store Perfect Potions smells inside. Hippy, but in a good way
– Two more backups of Jack Black Mint Intense Therapy lip balm.
This is my package from Zuneta.com . I went a little crazy when Sarah from Dempeaux told me that it was free international shipping because Zuneta normally charges an arm and a leg for shipping to Australia and there’s nowhere else I can purchase Rouge Bunny Rouge products.
Keep reading after the jump!
