Rose Extreme is delicious :smile: Yummy, refreshing, summerly - these are the words that come to my mind when I think about it. I recently took it out of the dust bag and caught myself smiling. Such a fun, bright Summer color! I don't like to give it a label of "corral", "pink" or "reddish" because it can look like any of those in different light conditions but my "experience" of the color is simply "fun and sunshine". I love it!

I only have Rose Mexico in a little rodeo so of course, the effect of the color is quite different in such a small doses but despite Rose Extreme being so bright I personally find it easier to use than Rose Mexico. I wear a lot of white in the Summer so Rose Extreme goes perfect with that. But I find that it also looks fabulous with black, grey and even certain green and pink shades. For me it turned out to be a very versatile color. I just find that whenever I wear Rose Extreme I feel like I need a nice frozen Daiquiri in another hand :biggrin:

Here are some photos for your reference. I hope they help!

And here I really went overboard with and decided to actually combine it with lime :smile:
Talking about those Summer cocktails, huh? ;) Summer's almost over around here so I am trying to make the most our of any ray of sun, which still comes through :smile:

I think of RE as a neon shade that glows like a duochrome red/pink, especially in leathers that bounce light strongly. It's a quirky pink for sure.

RM is a super bright true bright pink, think. It's slightly more 'serious' then RE.

(RP is softer, more going towards purple, i.e. with more blue undertones, but doesn't glow blue)

Rose Mexico is the pink I've been waiting for! Rose Pourpre has always been a little too blue for me. The only pinks I really liked were Rose Tyrien, Extreme, and Tosca. Will there be bags in RM? I would love one in Clemence.. :love:

I love all these photos :love: Here’s mine - photo taken indoors overcast day. They are all definitely more vibrant / lush in decent light. Colours look pretty true on my screen. B8C94D78-E5D5-4E95-81DF-AF14733A5915.jpeg
Clockwise from left: Rose Pourpre evercolor > Rose Mexico Milo > Rose Extreme clemence > Tosca swift. Hope this helps!
