Rouge Bunny Rouge is an extraordinarily high quality luxury niche makeup company that has developed a cult following in the beauty blogging community that is undeniable, and that is quite infectious (to read more about the company and my review of Abyssinian Catbird click here). The quality of RBR products is on par with any of the highest quality luxury makeup lines currently available in the marketplace. In addition to the astounding quality of their products, the entire line is conceived in the most charming, enchanting, and magical way imaginable. The fairytale narrative that magically shrouds their products makes the spectator feel as though they are embarking on a magical journey in search of the Holy Grail in an enchanted alternative universe (trust me when I tell you- you will find the Holy Grail here). There is a good reason that you will repeatedly find people speaking of "falling down the rabbit hole" of RBR, and this becomes all the more evident when you find yourself "Beyond the Looking Glass." Even their website welcomes you to the entrance of a magical secret land with butterflies flying about beckoning you to enter the Enchanted Garden. It is as though you are defenseless against the charms of this line once it has sprinkled you with its intoxicating fairy dust.
Once you enter the realm of the When Birds are Singing... Long-Lasting Eye Shadow collection you are not only greeted by beautiful collection eye shadows, but you are further educated about their beginnings in this lovely Enchanted Garden. The firefly festival is eagerly awaited all year in the Enchanted Garden. For then on this very special day, the best voices of the bird-world feed on tiny fireworks to embellish their voices and then gather to perform a single concert together. Their jubilant musical notes are inscribed in a syrup of figs and milk and preserved in tiny pots to be enjoyed all year round. Like this golden froth of musical syrup, WHEN BIRDS ARE SINGING... eye shadows are a time defying exotic enigma. This is plumage to adorn you in shades as deliciously mellow as soft silence that flows, or as brilliantly potent as jewelled notes. So addictive are these morsels that you’ll be causing your own kaleidoscopic ripples every time you wear them. Trust me- once you enter you will be hooked!
Delicate Hummingbird is a complex and multidimensional shade that RBR describes as a cool, dusty sugar-frosted plum, iridescent with pink shimmer. This is the quintessential purple eye shadow, it is simply the perfect embodiment of this glorious color, or as Zuzu*s Petals from Everyday Beauty would say it is "Purple perfection." I am nearly irrationally in love with this eye shadow, seriously. Purple has been my favorite color my entire life, and by this I mean to say that never was there a day that I wavered in my devotion to this regal color. My my birthstone is purple, my first bike was a purple Schwinn, I've lived in purple bedrooms at certain points in my life- I think that you get the picture.
