Rouge Bunny Rouge Cheeks in Bloom Blush Wand in "Manet" [Review + Swatches]

I'm reviewing the Rouge Bunny Rouge Cheeks in Bloom Blush Wand today and the shade I have is called 'Manet' 013. This was sent to me for review by Rouge Bunny Rouge in the bloggers meetup we had in January 2012.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Claims:
Charge your cheeks with ultra-sheer, natural-looking colour in a starry instant. A decadently ravishing sitting-by-a-glowing-fire flush, or an innocently alluring frolicking-in-the-meadow bloom is yours. This magical-sceptre-of-a-blush enlivens your face with a subtle youthful shine and a hint of even, blendable colour. A palette of four charming shades will paint you into a soft aquarelle inspiration or a vivacious oil-on-canvas muse. Those lucky souls, who find themselves gazing at you, will be suitably… distracted.

Contains a blend of natural oils and spherical powders for a super-soft emollient cream-to-powder finish in an easy to use portable wand. Blend with fingers, or layer on for intensity to achieve your very own look. Still want more? Then use this rare masterpiece on your lips too, for an ultra-sheer comfortable colour.

A twist-open stout cylindrical black plastic packaging, with cute-sy white flowers all over. A plastic cap covers the product inside and keeps it safe.  

Review and Swatches:
The RBR Cheeks in Bloom is a cream blush available in five shades. Manet is a medium warm rosy coral color that I love. It can give you that sun-kissed look during the day which is perfect for the summer. The consistency is like that of a creamy stick foundation but with super blend-ability, and it literally melts into the skin. It's fairly sheer and allows you to build the color according to your preference, RBR claims it to be 'semi-transparent' and I tend to agree, it gives you that subtle youthful glow without going overboard! I love the petite-ness of it, easy to accommodate in your makeup bag or when you travel. It has a mild synthetic scent that I feel vanishes after application.  
I use it directly on my face, by dotting it on the apples of my cheeks and then blending it outwards towards my temples with a dense blush brush. It stays on me for a good 4-5 hours easily.
According to RBR, it can also be used on the eyes and lips as well though I've not used it myself I'm sure it would make a lovely lip color!

Below is the swatch in flashlight, you can see the difference as to the color hue you can get with a single swipe or with the built color.
