Kristin and Jenni continue their summer 2012 pursuit of achieving Rouge Bunny Rouge’s “Mistral” look. Both BFF Beauty girls believe that the Mistral look, with neutral and balanced colors that compliment all skin tones, captures the essence of summer perfectly by creating a natural, fresh and sun-kissed glow!
The second product from Mistral, that Jenni is reviewing today, is the Sweet Excesses Glassy Gloss NEW SHADE Rhubard Custard, along with Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Shimmering Luxe Balm in Sip of Pink, and the Longlasting Lip Pencil in Vasco.

The Rouge Bunny Rouge MISTRAL Look…
Sweet Excesses Glassy Gloss “Rhubarb Custard” color description…
Along with the Mistral look launch and the product launch of 5 new Glass Gloss shades, Rouge Bunny Rouge has updated their Glassy Gloss formula to a more advanced texture…
Rhubarb Custard is a gorgeous shade on its own, but here is how it is used in the Mistral look:
Step ONE) If your lips need an extra portion of moisture begin with our structured, full-bodied and creamy DAZZLING SIP Shimmering Luxe Balm ‘Sip of Pink’ which melts onto your lips.
Step TWO) You wish for a my-lips-but-better colour? Try our semi sheer coverage milky nude rosewood SWEET EXCESSES Glassy Gloss ‘Rhubarb Custard’ for an ultra glossy but natural result on your lips. Apply with the included applicator.
- If you naturally have a darker lip colour, first use FINE-SPUN LIGHT to lighten up and get a more fresh and brilliant colour.
- Use our Long-lasting Lip Pencil to contour your lips and prevent “bleeding”. .
…I completed all the listed steps, including the ‘Small Tricks.’ Staring with the Fine-spun Light to even out my lip color, and the Longlasting Lip Pencil “Vasco” to contour my upper lip line. Then I applied a base-coat with Shimmering Luxe Balm “Sip of Pink” and topped it all off with my new favorite lip accessory Glassy Gloss “Rhubarb Custard.”
Here are the products I used…

First let me just say that I don’t know how Rouge Bunny Rouge continues to not only impress, but keeps me on my toes with excitement. I feel like just when I’ve found my all-time favorite RBR product, they manage to top it, and I fall in love all over again. As I’ve already discussed in previous Glassy Gloss reviews such as Fleur Parfait (link HERE,) I think the Glassy Gloss line is top-notch, probably the best gloss I own (and yes that includes Chanels Levres Scintillantes Glossimer.) Best in both the colors and formula. Well the ‘updated formula’ is just as fantastic, and I honestly can’t think of anything negative to report on it. The consistency is definitely less ‘sticky’ than the previous formula, but I didn’t think it was ever ‘too sticky’ to begin with. What I love about this new formula is the light & fluffy creaminess – it glides on so smoothly and really does coat your lips with a wet-effect look while providing long-lasting luscious color!
So you can get a better idea of the different Glassy Gloss formulas (original vs. updated,) I’ve included side-by-side comparison swatches of both…
Rhubarb Custard (on the LEFT) has the updated formula
Fleur Parfait (on the RIGHT) has the original formula.
Rouge Bunny Rouge gets an A+++ and a cherry (or should I say rhubarb) on top, for their updated formula and new Glassy Gloss shade – Rhubarb Custard!
