Rouge Bunny Rouge Feline Gaze Eye Khol in Salome & Delilah- Swatches and Review!
Every night, the Enchanted Garden artists get to work with magic pencils so that the Garden can transform itself with different colours and moods. Metamorphose yourself just as easily into whomever you want to be today, with FELINE GAZE eye pencils.
A darkly elegant seductive feline? A mystical flower-of-the-hour doe-eyed beauty? A deliciously sinful sultry almond-eyed goddess? Be pure temptation itself, as you purringly write your own manifesto with this eye pencil that adorns you. So soft that it almost melts on application, but will stay put day or night, inviting closer inspection... dancing in the memory of those who met you long after you've left the room and inviting all manner of thoughts.
Rouge Bunny Rouge suggests that, "This formula embraces spherical polymers and waxes, giving maximum comfort with outstanding staying power. The colour release, with its beautiful creaminess and glide, is much higher compared to traditional pencils. Use for precision contouring along the lash line, soft blending by smudging with fingertips or brush, or for building smoky smouldering effects."
My love affair with Rouge Bunny Rouge is no secret, and indeed I could dedicate an entire blog to my unwavering devotion to this magical line. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that I'm a huge fan of their Feline Gaze Eye Khol formula (see my review of Vera here). My two more recent additions are Salome (perfect creamy matte jet black) and Delilah (Semi-matte aubergine, with a plum lustre). First, I must state that I was legally and contractually obligated to purchase Delilah since it is the name of my dog, and she has a keen eye for all things that "use" her name-- so she forces me to purchase all such things to see whether they are good enough to have earned the right to appropriate her name. RBR Feline Gaze Eye Khol in Delilah earned the right!
Delilah is a stunning aubergine that takes more work (a few more passes) in order to build up an intensity relative to that which occurs so easily with Salome. I find that Delilah is an intoxicatingly sexy shade that really makes my hazel eyes pop when worn in my lower lash line. I have had no issues of migration whatsoever, and I find this to be a delightful shade.
I have paired Salome and Delilah together with great success as well. I have applied Salome as a winged liner on the top lid and smudged Delilah into my lower lash line- and it's a gorgeous combination. I have also applied Delilah on my upper and lower lids and then thinly applied Salome on top of Delilah closer to the lash line (but not quite a tightline)- this is also a really lovely combination.
Small tricks courtesy of Rouge Bunny Rouge:
The soft formula of the Eye Khol is perfect for a smoky look: smudge the pencil line with your fingertip or with the RBR Sponge Applicator (# 015). Use a lighter version of the Eye Khol (´Lola´ or ´Delilah´) to get a softer day-version of smoky eyes.
For a perfect line, slightly stretch the eyelid by lifting the outside edge of the brow with your forefinger and place your middle finger or thumb on the outer edge of your cheekbone with a slight downwards pull.
Apply the ´Salome´ (black) or ´Lola´ (brown) khol to the inner upper eyelid to really enhance the lash line.
