I first bought these blushes from the Hautelook sale at 40% off and swatched Call Me and Kinky in this post. Then, the next time the sale came around, I decided to buy X-Rated, All Nighter, Bedroom, and Lust as well since I was so impressed with the quality of the first two. A reader e-mailed me to let me know that Hautelook will be having Rock & Republic Beauty sale again on Monday, 7/12 so I thought it would be a great time to post all of my collection and swatches.
If you haven't already signed up for Hautelook, click here for an invite. Note: Hautelook does give a store credit to the inviter after the invitee's first purchase, but as always I only post when there is actually an event I am personally buying from too. Gotta share those good deals! ;)
As an all-encompassing statement, I will say that this blush line is one of the best quality blushes that I've come across. They are gorgeously pigmented, finely milled, and are long-lasting. The actual amount of product in the pan is literally 2x the amount in a NARS blush, so they last forever. I don't even want to start on the packaging! It's weighty, shiny, and just over-the-top decadent which I LOVE.
The only downsides to these blushes are the availability (You can only buy it online and at R&R specialty stores, or occasional Hautelook sales) and the price (Original retail price is $40. Ouch!) But as I mentioned before, I got mine through Hautelook where they were $24 and compared to NARS blushes which retail at $26, it's quite a nice deal.
So with no further ado, here are the swatches which can explain 100x better than words can. :)
Now, with Sweet Swatch Action™
Each blush in biggins glory. So you can see the pretty shimmers. ^O^
All my babies together. Hopefully I will add even more on Monday's Hautelook sale. ^.^
And my face wearing Call Me. You can see a peek of my beloved orchid! She has 13 blooms, so pretty.
Check out the adorable necklace I bought from Lisa HQCD's store. I freakin' love the silver branch. Oh, and the watch I'm wearing in the video is from Juny's and the polish I'm wearing is Revlon Petal Peach.
And just to end with a BANG, here's a shot I took from the 5th of July, when we had a fireworks show since the 4th got rained out. I took this with my trusty pink Sony Cybershot T-90 in fireworks mode! Impressive, no? We could see the fireworks from my apartment complex so it was nice just going outside to see the pretty lights. :D
Anyway, hope that was helpful if any of you are deciding to buy something from Monday's Hautelook sale. Let me know if you decided to get something or if you already have any Rock & Republic stuff! Any other suggestions of colors I should get this time?
Hope you guys have a fantastic weekend. :)
