I’m not the first person to discover the awesome-ness that lies within the Rouge Bunny Rouge eyeshadow formula. After seeing a deluge of YouTube videos and blog posts of various shades I finally decided it was time to give in and try them out. It’s always hard when you have to order something overseas. You can’t see it, touch it, etc. AND the waiting. But one fine day they arrived and it’s no wonder why I soon felt the need to fill up my shopping cart with more shades…
Rouge Bunny Rouge Delicate Hummingbird and Angelic Cockatiels. I do find the names endearing. The packaging is plastic and I’m not really impressed with the quality of it. I have said this before, but for the price Burberry shadows are far more luxe with packaging than most brands are. I also find that these are sometimes difficult to open. But nonetheless the beauty lies within the actual product itself.

Delicat Hummingbird is one of those “have to have it” taupe shadows. If you’re like me, you’re on a no-taupes-left-behind beauty tour. The quality and texture of the shadow itself is amazing. Not as dry as Chanel, but not as soft as Le Metier de Beaute. Of the the three I find that Rouge Bunny Rouge is the best. The pigmentation is superb and while Le Metier de Beaute makes a fine shadow, sometimes I feel like it’s a bit too soft. I included a flash picture so you could see the dimension of this shade. Truly stunning!

Angelic Cockatiels is such a wearable lid shade. The same things I said above apply here as well. This shade is like a cross between MAC All That Glitters and Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in Emerveille. It marries the best qualities of both in one spectacular pan.

As I said earlier, Angelic Cockatiels is like a combination of Emerveille and All That Glitters. Beige Lamé is more brown and much less shimmery. Corinthian is more brown than both Fauve and Delicate Hummingbird and Delicate Hummingbird is the most purple of the three.
Both of the RBR shadows are powders, but have cream-like qualities. They aren’t cheap, either. At about $35 each plus pretty costly shipping from Zuneta (where I ordered, and the only place I think you can get them if you live in the US) they are quite a luxury item. It’s best if you are going to try these out for the first time to pick something you will get a lot of use out of. Overall I’m happy to report that these are a total win, I just wish they were easier to get a hold of and that the packaging was a bit more…well, a bit more fetching for the price range.
Have you tried Rouge Bunny Rouge? If you have, what is your favorite thing that you have tried so far? Happy Sunday! Anyone else looking forward to The Walking Dead tonight?! After last week’s episode I’m on pins and needles waiting to see what happens next.
