Rouge Bunny Rouge have brought out a new pressed powder called Imperceptible Powder Evanescence, its meant to be suitable for all skin types (including dry) and provide a "bare skin" finish. The formula is enriched with rose hip oil and contains an anti-wrinkle complex called D’Orientine S.
Though I need to wear powder daily as I get a lot of shine breakthrough, me and powder do not get along,
however as RBR is a brand I have a very good success rate with I was
keen to give this a try.
RBR very kindly sent me the powder, I selected
the lightest shade Aura (there are four shades available). Aura
suits my pale complexion well, there is a slight yellow tone to this
that helps counteract some of my redness.
The powder has a smooth, silky texture and feels light weight. It does not blot
out all shine, like something more heavy duty like MAC blot, but it
prevents any more shine coming through. The powder really does lock
everything in place, I notice very little change after a days wear (I
tend to wear makeup from 6:00AM till 18:30PM).

The powder blends very
nicely on the skin, not accentuating dryness nor fine lines and provides
medium coverage with a natural you skin but better finish.

powder is heavily scented, kind of a sweet almond smell, fragrance tends
to make my skin itchy straight away but I've had no problem with this
but I would have preferred fragrance to have been excluded.
For me this
is a solid performer as I have not encountered any of the problems I
normally get with powders (such as feeling drying, clinging onto dry patches,
not preventing shine, breaking me out and not lasting).
I really like that this does not feel mask like and provides a
medium coverage that minimises excess shine without obliterating
everything, so that your skin still looks like skin but just on a good
