Swatches: Rouge Bunny Rouge Eyeshadows in Bohemian Waxwing and Delicate Hummingbird


Quirky brand Rouge Bunny Rouge are a bit of a blogger favourite, combining pretty packaging, lovely textures, and luxe pricing to bring you products which are downright lovely and feel like a massive treat. I tried some of their When Birds Are Singing Eyeshadows before, and found them to be lovely, albeit a little too expensive.  Naturally, when Zuneta offered a free glitter pigment shadow with a £40 spend, I felt tempted enough to take the plunge again - I'm a sucker for a freebie.

I chose Bohemian Waxwing, described as an iridescent bronzed champagne and Delicate Hummingbird, described as a dusky, sugar frosted plum.

The eagle-eyed amongst you might have noticed that the two eyeshadow compacts are not actually the same size.  Bohemian Waxwing is a tiny bit smaller than Delicate Hummingbird.

This is because Bohemian Waxwing is one of the newly resized pans, which fit into the insanely expensive palette system (a 2-pan palette costs £12, and pan eyeshadows cost £16 each, making a filled 2-pan palette £44).  The change is in the size of the pan, and also in the weight - the new format is 0.4g lighter.

Anyway, back to the colours.  As with many RBR eyeshadows, these two look pretty subtle in the pan.  Nice enough shades, but nothing to write home about.

Swatched, though, you get some idea of why these eyeshadows are so expensive.  They have a lovely shimmer and sheen to the finish, which is almost metallic, but not too sparkly.  The eyeshadow texture is incredibly buttery soft, applying smoothly to the eyelid and blending beautifully.  

I still think these eyeshadows are too expensive - I paid £22 for Delicate Hummingbird, and £21.99 for Bohemian Waxwing (a penny less for 0.4g less product).  They are undoubtedly lovely, though, and I will absolutely enjoy using them - particularly Delicate Hummingbird, which I know will look lovely next to my hazel eyes.  Find them exclusively at Zuneta.

    1. They're both pretty versatile shades - don't think there are many skin tones they wouldn't look great alongside :)

  2. Delicate Hummingbird is very pretty! I wish it wasn't so expensive though.

    1. Me too, the price of RBR stuff is a little bit offputting I must admit. Doesn't stop me from buying them though :)
