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 HummingbirdBohemian WaxwingUnforgettable 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. rouge bunny rouge eyeshadows swatches

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.
adh2 Delicate Hummingbird is a dusky sugar-frosted plum that remains to be one of the best-selling shades of the brand. I like that it has the perfect blend of purple, brown and grey tones making it a taupey plum shade I can wear without looking like I haven’t slept for days. It has good pigmentation, although not as intense as the bold Abyssinian Catbird. I think I may just pull off wearing it alone. abw2 Bohemian Waxwing is an iridescent bronzed champagne that makes one lovely neutral to be paired with just about any other shade. Although I don’t really see it as champagne, more like a light taupe brown. Pigmentation is the same as Delicate Hummingbird – good but not as saturated as Abyssinian Catbird. In the pan, it looked quite boring to me, but swatched, transforms into a beautiful complex shade. To me, it looks like Delicate Hummingbird without the purple tones. I’m excited to see how it translates on  my lids.  aac2 Abyssinian Catbird is a bold olive-toned golden bronze. I think it’s the creamiest of all the shades, almost didn’t feel like I was swatching powder shadow. One swipe gives a super saturated color that’s just too beautiful for words. I don’t think I have any shade similar to AbCat at all. It’s a step out of my comfort zone because of the olive tones, tbh. I’ve never really worn khaki shades well, but I’m willing to give this one a shot. Unforgettable Oriole is a metallic white gold that I plan on using not just as a highlight color, but a lid wash paired with darker shades on the outer-v. It has good pigmentation although it takes two heavy swipes to achieve full opacity, unlike the rest that are opaque in just one swipe. I think this isn’t as unique as the other three shades, but let’s see how I can use it differently.

IN SUMMARY

Overall, I think these Rouge Bunny Rouge single eyeshadows aren’t raved about for nothing. Usually, I shy away from overhyped things and when I do give in, I find that it’s all smokes and no fire. This time though, like the Burberry eyeshadows, I think it’s all fiiiiiire. Beautiful creamy texture that melds into the skin upon application. Throw away those blending brushes because these seem to blend seamlessly on the lids on their own. Also, despite my heavy swatches, these virtually have no fallout at all. I can’t say yet about longevity or crease tendencies as I haven’t worn it for a full day but will update you on the individual reviews on these. All in all, I can say that Rouge Bunny Rouge is definitely one of the best eyeshadow formulas I’ve come across so far. Better than Tom Ford, Chanel and Guerlain, even. I could not equate it to my love for Burberry though, as those sheer eyeshadows hold a special place in my heart because they do neutrals so damn well (I’m waiting for 2 more shades to add to my collection). I have yet to wear these RBR shades on for a full day with a full look and see if they can contend with my Burberry infatuation.

    I have Bohemian Waxwing and Abyssinian Catbird (as well as a couple others) and I loooove them a lot! I don’t tend to reach for singles very often, but these are definitely exceptions in my stash.

    Ahhhh I love RBR. So far, I only have Solstice Halcyon, but I’ve had my eye on three of the shades you’ve hauled. Soooo good. <3

      Oh wow, Solstice Halycon looks niiiice! 🙂 Get them at Luxola pag 35% off, super sulit (I think!)

        Yeah, I think at this point, I’ll really only get them if sale. I have way too much makeup right now. Soooo pretty, though. 🙂

    Oh wow, the brown and the purple looks and sounds like a dream! I’ve seen quite a few reviews from different ladies in the blogsphere about the super smooth and highend consistent feel about these! They are a bit pricey but they seem so worth it!
