Rouge Bunny Rouge Highlighter Brush & Blender Brush

Rouge Bunny Rouge Highlighter Brush 014, Blender Brush 016

Rouge Bunny Rouge recently launched two new brushes, the Highlighter Brush (014) and Blender Brush (016). Both of them have shapes that I don’t own yet in my stash, so it has been an interesting experience trying both out!

Both of these are made with synthetic hair, and the handles are wooden. The hair is firm without being scratchy in the least bit. I have washed both a handful of times, and none of them bled at all. They also retain shape extremely well.

The Highlighter Brush (014. 30 euros) works with both powder and liquid highlighters. The tip is very precise, so you can’t overdo it! I often use my blush brush to highlight, but this gets the smaller corners (like Cupid’s Bow) while a blush brush can’t! Rouge Bunny Rouge says this works with a variety of powders and liquids, including foundations. However, I haven’t tried this yet, as the smaller size means it’d take a long time. However, it is fantastic for concealers! Be it the undereye area, side of the nose, or corner of the mouth, this gets the job done fast and well!

The Blender Brush (016. 27 euros) is a domed eyeshadow brush.

The tip is again firm yet non-scratchy. It is supposed to blend and smudge out eyeliner. I principally use this to blend eyeshadows together, and it does work well. However, since I have limited lid space, I have to be a bit more careful. It is also way too big for me to smudge my eyeliner out.

Bottom line: Both Rouge Bunny Rouge Highlighter Brush and Blender Brush are high-quality and well-made. I personally find the Highlighter Brush more versatile. In fact, it might just be my favorite concealer brush so far! The Blender Brush does work well, but I have to maneuver carefully because my lid space is very limited. However, it should work better for those with more lid space!

Have you tried any Rouge Bunny Rouge brushes? If so, what would you recommend?

    Cool! These look really great! I love different brushes-you can use them for so many things I think! That highlighter brush looks especially great to me. I could use something like that!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Tracy, yeah I like the highlighter brush more! I’ve actually tried to use the blender brush for concealer, but it seems like concealer has to be smoothed on and not buffed in, so it’s not really a good one for that.

  • beauties

    they are cheaper than I expected :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Oh yeah. They have some more expensive ones, but in general RBR brushes are affordable!

  • Becca @ The Beauty Sample

    That dense blending brush is so cute! It actually reminds me a lot of the Sonia Kashuk Domed Blending Brush. The RBR one is a bit shorter and denser but still. I like the the SK version a lot though–it blends out harsh edges beautifully!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Becca, oh I’ve heard good things about SK brushes! That one actually looks REALLY promising, and I like the shape of the handle.

  • syrena85

    They look lovely :-). I don’t have many brushes in my collection and have never used any of the RBR products. It would be maybe worth trying.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Irena, I don’t have that many brushes, either! I’ve been looking into expanding my collection though. Right now I’m eyeing the Hourglass foundation brush and Tom Ford (or Wayne Goss) eyeshadow blending brush. If you want to try RBR, I would encourage you to start from their eyeshadows and blushes! Those are really truly good!

      • syrena85

        It’s sometimes really difficult to choose the right one. I heard Tom Ford’s brushes are very good. But then they are so expensive. I don’t have any RBR here. Will check this out once I’ll go to Poland.
        PS: my Caudalie hand cream set has just arrived 😀 😀

        • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          OOO yeah lucky you! You’ve got stores there! I’d love to hear what you think! Hope you’ll enjoy your Caudalie hand creams as well <3

  • Icaria

    These both look great and I know I could get good mileage out of them. *sigh* I so need new brushes, if only I could stop buying makeup!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha good brushes go a LONG way though!

  • Sara_BeauTime

    They both look lovely but I am wondering how the blending brush blends with such short bristles. It look more like a layering brush to me.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Sara, the brush is not THAT soft. I mean it’s soft in a non-scratchy way, but the hair does have a certain firmness and yield.

  • LifeOfBun

    That blender brush looks looovely! Big though indeed.. ahh some brushes are too small (test my patience) and others are too big.. third world problems lol!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha brushes are also very personal. There are brushes others love and I just can’t quite figure out how they work 😉

  • Isabelle

    They look nice, and not too expensive! Especially that Highlighter Brush caught my eye.. I shall add it to that RBR haul I have been contemplating for ages. I keep putting it off because I’m buying other stuff. WHY!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hahaha you should make up your mind and start saving for that! A lot of great stuff to be discovered!

  • Natalie

    The highlighter brush looks really cool! Its nice that its multipurpose.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Yeah it is! I love to use it as a concealer brush! It’s big enough to get things done fast, but small enough for all the nooks and crannies :)

  • Jenny

    Oooohhhhh, I’ve been eyeing both of these and was wondering how they were. Thanks for the review Sunny, I may have to cave and get them.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      You’re welcome, Jenny! I’d like to hear what you think if you do!

  • jenn @Abeautifulzen

    i like the shape of the highlighter and would totally use that over the lid. i just love wider flat brushes for lids since you get a lot of a color all in one go. great for work days.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Jenn, I think the highlighter brush might be a bit too big for my lids, though now I kinda want to give it a go :)

  • Judith

    I have two brushes exactly identical of your highlighter brush, must be the same private label. I use them all the time, as a brow highlight and as an all over color (I have big eyes)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Judith, I’m not surprised! Many companies outsource when it comes to manufacturing brushes. If you have big eyes, I can see how that works well for you!

  • Liz

    Have you tried using the blender brush as a concealer brush instead? I find almost all brushes way too big for the purported usage on my face.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Liz, I have but it doesn’t work that well. It seems like concealers have to be “smoothed on” instead of “buffed in,” and when I tried to use this with my Cle de Peau Concealer, the concealer ended up looking uneven after it has been set. I’m not sure if it is that particular concealer though! I should get my science geek on and experiment!

  • Sofia

    I’ve never tried their brushes. For my eyes I’m really into cream eyeshadows and pat it in with my fingers… These brushes look nice though, I’d love to try them!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Sofia, oh I use cream shadows/shadow sticks very often as well! If you’re just dabbling in the RBR water, I’d recommend their blushes and eyeshadows first!

  • Lily

    Oh I haven’t tried any of their brushes. That little blender brush is cute, but I got my eye on the highlighter brush. It reminds me a little of that MAC brush – cant remember the number though. Pretty good to highlight brow bone and little areas :-)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Lily, yup that highlighter brush is nice and versatile! The result is very precise and subtle!

  • Joyce (bronzer bunny)

    i keep staring at these online. I suppose i should add them to my wishlist :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hahaha yeah that sounds like a good idea :)
