Have you ever tried explaining the idea of no-makeup makeup to your significant other? Did he (or she), like El Hub, drift off into space as you broke it down, bullet-point style? Did their eyes glaze over as you described, in painstaking detail, your quest to find a perfect barely-there blush in a no-makeup makeup color?
If so, I may have found something to help.
In a manner of speaking.
Here comes Peter Tabbytail, hoppin’ down the bunny trail, and he’s carrying RBR’s Blush Wand in Titiaaaaan.
Rouge Bunny Rouge’s $34 Blush Wand in Titian isn’t exactly drugstore magic, but it’s capable of casting a spell or two.
The pricey, albeit perfectly natural-looking, peachy cream stick blush hopped on the scene eariler this summer with its cotton-tailed cousins in the Rouge Bunny Rouge Mistral Collection.
I swipe it straight from the stick on bare skin, or atop foundation and/or powder, and then blend out any visible edges with a finger.
Unfortunately, this bunny is also kinda skittish and disappears after about four hours…
Yup, it doesn’t last very long, at least not on my combination dry/oily skin, which means that it’s a good thing the packaging is so doggone cute and convenient.
To its credit, this bunny is quite a rare breed. It’s not always easy to find a cream blush that can lay down a veil of even, glassy color on my patchy, sometimes flaky cheeks, but Titian manages to do just that.
It might not be right for skin tones much darker than mine, possibly appearing washed out based on what I’m seeing, but lighter lasses and medium skin tones may be in luck, especially those who don’t mind having to reapply halfway through the day.
If you have very light skin, I hope you give it a try and let me know how it goes. I bet it’ll look beautiful.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. I still haven’t caught last night’s episode of True Blood, but I’m hoping I can watch it tonight. I did, however, start watching the new episode of Hell on Wheels.
So random, but every time I watch that show (LOL! I just accidentally typed “every time I swatch that show”), I say to El Hub, “I don’t think I could have handled living back then. There’s just so much mud!”
Yeah, I’m not built for frontier living and chamber pots… I’m pretty sure about that.
