So here are a few of the things that were in those pretty little boxes in my Rouge Bunny Rouge Teaser post!
At this point in the game, I think that it is safe to say that you are well aware of my obsession with Rouge Bunny Rouge. I have yet to come across a product of theirs that was a disappointment, and that is quite a rarity. Even the best lines produce a dud now and again, but so far this has not been the case in my journey down the RBR rabbit hole. If you decide to take the plunge- don't be surprised if you see him on the way down!
I think that you will probably agree with me that matte shadows are extremely hard to do right- they are often chalky, patchy, apply unevenly, and quite often feel uncomfortable and drying on the eyelids. In fact, I have found very few brands whose mattes even come close to working for me. Rouge Bunny Rouge Long-Lasting Matte Eye Shadows- When Birds Are Singing is a real paradigm shift in the world of matte shadows. These are silky smooth eye shadows that are creamy dreamy, and luxuriously soft as well as ultra finely milled. Even people who shy away from matte eye shadows will be among the converted because these mattes are really that good. They apply evenly, are buildable, and come in a gorgeous array of must-have neutrals. I have four of them, but trust me when I tell you that the remaining shades are on my "must-have" list. Skeptics will be among the converted after a single swatch- and I am not exaggerating.
I tend to favor simple looks for myself- namely a wash of color on the lid and a winged liner, and all of these shades work quite well for just that. I tend to use Blackpepper Jay as an eye liner, and Grey Go-Away Lourie, Chestnut-Napped Apalis, and Sweet Dust Seriema for a wash of color. However the versatility of these shadows suggests that they would also be excellent crease and outer-v colors as well.
For excellent reviews of Bashful Flamingo and Sweet Dust Seriema see Visionary Beauty and Everyday Beauty, and for a lovely review of Sweet Dust Seriema see Perilously Pale- you won't be disappointed.
Overall assessment: These mattes have by far exceeded all of my expectations, period! They are my absolute Holy Grail matte eye shadows. I honestly cannot imagine how anyone will be able to top this formula. They are expensive, but worth every last cent.
