|The box that houses this bronzer is beyond charming.
My love for Rouge Bunny Rouge continues with this review of the Bronzing Glow Powder in Netherway Cove. Retailing for $49 at www.beautyhabit.com, this bronzer has surpassed my expectations, swiftly replacing the remainder of my Guerlain Terracotta Bronzer #01 in the precious high-rent real estate of my cosmetics bag.
At Netherway Cove is the darker of the two RBR bronzer options, though I think it is completely suitable for light to medium skin tones.
The bronzer shade itself is extremely special. For reference, some bronzers that I have used faithfully include Edward Bess Ultra Luminous Bronzer in Daydream and Guerlain Terracotta Bronzer in #01…while these bronzers are fabulous (please scroll down towards the end of this post for comparison swatches), the ability for Netherway Cove to be authentically tan (without orange or red undertones) and both shimmer-free yet glowing is a pleasant conundrum, that places it above the rest.
It comes in a lovely plastic compact with a generous mirror.
Rouge Bunny Rouge via the Beautyhabit website describes Netherway Cove as a…
This bronzer is a matte (yet, somehow glowing) brown with no perceptible shimmer and possesses a very believable olive, rather than orange, undertone.

As demonstrated by the comparison swatches above and below, the Gueralain Terracotta is a bit thicker in texture than the Edward Bess Ultra Luminous Bronzer in Daydream, which has some shimmer and is a bit more russet in tone. The Rouge Bunny Rouge is the most “olive brown” of the three, as well as being shimmer free and extremely silky in texture…it just melts into and becomes “one” with the skin.

Bottom Line: The Rouge Bunny Rouge Bronzing Glow Powder in Netherway Cove is nothing short of amazing…the pure bronzed look it yields, all while avoiding shimmer, oxidation and the dreaded “orange effect” is sensational. Highly recommended to achieve luminous bronzing, believable natural contouring and an overall natural, healthy glow, all without the harmful effects of the sun!
