When Birds Are Singing..
I finally gave in to the much-raved about Rouge Bunny Rouge eyeshadows when I saw that Luxola was having a 30% off sale. Luxola is a Singapore-based beauty online retailer that ships door-to-door to the Philippines for free! For local beauty fans like me, this is godsend. They carry brands that aren’t freely available here in the Philippines such as Alpha-H, By Terry, Dr. Jart, Edward Bess, NUXE, Rachel K Cosmetics, REN, SK-II, This Works, Zoeva and many others. This is actually my second purchase from the online shop and I’m ecstatic to share that they deliver door-to-door in less than a week’s time to the Philippines without any hassle.
Moving on, I bought four Rouge Bunny Rouge eyeshadow singles in Delicate Hummingbird, Bohemian Waxwing, Unforgettable Oriole and Abyssinian Catbird. I was also eyeing another one, Eclipse Eagle, but it was out of stock. Don’t the names sound so…. for lack of a better word, complexly hipster? They’re actually all derived from different kinds of birds (no duh, Shari). I even had to look up a catbird as I was stuck with images of a half-cat, half-bird creature while swatching this whole set. I will be reviewing these individually with comparisons to other brands and matching FOTDs so if you’re here for in-depth reviews, sorry. For now, I’ll only be doing swatches and first impressions.
A League of its Own
In general, the texture of these shadows are all topnotch. They’re super smooth and silky, almost feeling more like cream than powder. Buttery is an understatement. They’re similar to the Burberry sheer eyeshadows which I recently fell in love with, only these RBR shades I got are more shimmery. I could slightly compare the butteriness to LORAC Pro’s satin eyeshadows (which is similar but not exactly the same) except there’s zero fallout on these. Pigmentation varies from shade to shade with Abyssinian Catbird being the most pigmented of the four.
Can I also just share the Rouge Bunny Rouge brand description on their website? It sounds like a literary masterpiece worthy of its own fairy tale. I think I had to look up a word or three.
At Rouge Bunny Rouge we believe everyday is worthy of a soupcon of whimsy. As if the book of the Enchanted Garden lies open in our hands, we tell its enduring tales through powders that whisper over skin, unguents that caress and cajole and mesmeric vapours that seduce the senses. With indulgent textures tied with wistful tones, each fragment is created to enhance natural beauty, allowing you to become the protagonist in your own mysterious tale.
