Wordless Wednesday: Rouge Bunny Rouge Matte Eyeshadows

Since my last big RBR round-up, I've managed to collect the full set of these gloriously creamy matte shadows (still my very favourite formula) so here they are, all together:

Rouge Bunny Rouge RBR matte eyeshadow swatches Blackpepper Jay Grey Go-Away Lourie Chestnut-Napped Apalis Sweet Dust Seriema Bashful Flamingo Papyrus Canary
natural light (shade)

with flash -- these aren't quite dead-flat mattes
From left to right (dark to light):
Blackpepper Jay
Grey Go-Away Lourie
Chestnut-Napped Apalis
Sweet Dust Seriema
Bashful Flamingo
Papyrus Canary


All swatches are one swipe with a sponge applicator on my bare (moisturised) arm, which is much paler than a MAC 15 depth. Bashful Flamingo and Papyrus Canary I would eyeball as around NW and NC15 respectively.

Rouge Bunny Rouge shadows are made in Italy. Each of my shadows were 2.4g, but I believe RBR are currently changing all their shadows to 2g versions in smaller (MAC-sized) pans.

RBR is sold at Zuneta and Beautyhabit online; currently they only have brick&mortar counters in Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

(My wordless is not everybody's wordless.)

    1. Buy six Seriemas! :D Now wasn't that a pithy solution.

  2. I got rid of my Grey Go-Away Lourie in my blog sale earlier this year.

    ... I don't know why.

    Chestnut-Napped Apalis is as beautiful as its name. Love it when a brand gives exquisite attention to naming (versus the appalling use of Red-y/Orange/words that shouldn't have started with a K)

    1. *disowns*
      These ARE a particularly lovely capsule collection. My favourites are the lunar seas highlighters *is seven, wants a unicorn*

  3. Damnit, I WANT!

    But I bought lots of Inglot so I would stop lemming every eyeshadow on earth :'(

    1. D: I'm eternally grateful Inglot doesn't work on me. So tempting. So much juicy research!

    1. But they are smaller! lol I know you will laugh and be able to count the years from now before I finish one of these, but I like a big pan for workhorse shades.

  5. Kate,
    Would you recommend to use "Sea of Clouds" in the inner corner of one's eye? I don't have any RBR items yet and you seem to be the only bloger with the "Sea of Clouds".
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Lena, you certainly could, but it would be quite subtle (it's not a garish highlight at all). Also depends on your skintone etc. :)

      Delete
    2. I am pale. Does it apply white? Do you have any other white highlight recomendations? Thank you!
      Love your makeup rule braking applications!

      Delete
    3. Ah, for me personally it isn't strong enough of a contrast. It's not stark white so on pale skins it doesn't really 'pop' enough for an inner corner highlight (I have garish tastes!)
      Staying within RBR I like Alabaster Starling or Capricious Nightingale eyeshadows; or Wishing for Wings pigment for that kind of thing :)

    4. Thank you for your recommendation! I checked BeautyHabit, they look lovely! Can't wait to try it!:)

  6. hehe, this is the type of silence that I like...still chatty and full of fab-neutral swatches, but girl...you are also verbally blessed so if you get superchatty on us: please go on :)

  7. Gah. I thought I was all set for matte eyeshadows but now I need all of these.

    Fantastic swatches.

    1. I got rid of my other neutral mattes after these *sigh* Replete.

  8. What a coincidence, I just bought Sweet Dust Seriema!
    I can't wait to get my hands on it ... and I need to go on a brush-washing spree since I've been so rushed lately dirty brushes are piling up, and I'm actually *gasp* running out of alternatives!

    1. I'm glad to 'see' you! This is a such a gorgeous shade, perfect balance and unsubtle complexity - I hope you love it as much as I do :)

    2. Well, I officially adore Seriema - and I'm glad I've gotten it while still in 2.4g pan format - my new Solstice Halcyon seems so small!
      (But the two shades pair beautifully - hello rushed-morning-go-to.)

      I actually got all ambitious and used what was left of Seriema on a fluffy blending brush to lightly contour my nose - totally worked, even after careful checking in all sorts of light.

      I see Chestnut-Napped Apalis and Grey Go-Away Lourie in my future!

      (I've been awfully busy, and had an OMG my computer is broken panic, but it's fixed now, and life's going really well. I just wish Red Cross would stop harassing me in the street as I'm walking to volunteer for a different charity!)

    3. *clings for life* I must try that SDS contouring trick; it seems much better suited for that than Chanel Notorious (which, btdubs, you WILL want if you log on to MUA even if you KNOW it doesn't work on you... fair warning.)

      It does seem to be accoster-season :/ I got caught up by the Hari Krishnas today, like a tourist.

  9. here is a question for ya: what sort of brush(es) do you prefer using with these?

    1. all kinds :D They blend like a dream so play well with every fluffy blender I own, but are pigmented to pack on with a flat paddle, and also creamy-dense enough to line with on a smaller dense push-brush. I have tried SDS as a contour too, and it works fabulously with a cheek brush.
