Such an act of violence against such a beautiful eyeshadow! No, it did not arrive in this condition. Instead the second time that I pulled it out of the package to gaze at it lovingly my finger slipped and I watched in horror as my fingernail embedded itself into the virgin pan! Quelle horreur! If you heard screaming at that very moment-- then you can be assured that it was me! Enough dwelling on that which cannot be changed- I suppose that I can be thankful that I didn't drop it on the floor and watch it become smashed to smithereens.
Moving on. Umber Firefinch is one of the lovely new eyeshadow colors that Rouge Bunny Rouge recently launched. Rouge Bunny Rouge describes it as an "iridescent dark umber chocolate," but I would add that it is a very cool tauped brown that is devoid of all warmth. Modesty Brown rightly suggests that the name "conjures a warm brown......but Umber Firefinch is a cool, ash toned brown." For me, this is perfect for my cool-toned skin, however for those with warmer skin you may find that this is too cool, and that the actual color seems to defy Rouge Bunny Rouge's description (or at the very least, one's perception of what the description means). As with all Rouge Bunny Rouge eye shadows, Umber Firefinch is creamy and silky smooth with fantastic pigmentation, stellar color saturation, and absolutely no fall-out. In short, it is as extraordinary as all of the Rouge Bunny Rouge eye shadows that we love!
