You may or may not be aware that recently over at Secret Sales there was a Rouge Bunny Rouge sale. Now this ethereal looking brand has always appealed to me, but the prices were right out of my league… however, a 50% off sale was more than I could pass up! Generally speaking this brand isn’t well known outside of the beauty blogging world, or least a quick survey of people I know showed that none of them had heard of the brand at all. Possibly the reason for this is the lack of availability in the High Street. I think it’s probably only a matter of time before word spreads though, the quality is amazing and the packaging is to die for. So first up, just take a look at the stunning outer packaging and please try and pretend that there of the boxes arent’ upside down…
The first item is the Decadent Duo in Tango and Argentino. It is beautiful. It’s a liquid blush on one end and a gloss on the other and it really is beautiful. The liquid blush is a natural flush colour that blends like a dream and the lipgloss is a sheer pink with a hint of sparkle. However, I do kind of wish I hadn’t bought this as they are so tiny. I’d rather have used my money to buy one of the gorgeous blush wand, but you know, they weren’t half price, this was, and it is glorious. I just can’t see it lasting me very long at all which is disappointing.
Next up are the three eyeshadows I bought or to give them thir proper name, When Birds Are Singing Long-Lasting Eye Shadows in Veiled Lyrebird, Tantalizing Lovebird and Gracious Arasari. Here they are under two different lights:
In the second picture the order is Gracious Arasari, Veiled Lyrebird and Tantalizing Lovebird. I have mixed feelings on these. The packaging is glorious, as are the colours! The level of pigment is pretty good. Gracious Arasari is the least shimmery of them all, and I must say I struggle to get it show up on my lid, it’s fine in it’s pigment levels, it just is very pale. Veiled Lyrebird and Tantalizing Lovebird are both stunning shades but they are very similar on my eyelid so they merge into one! Seperately they are stunning and for me, rather than wearing these shades together, I will probably end up wearing these when I want a single colour. Don’t get me wrong, the formula of these is beautiful, and the swatches glorious, there’s nothing wrong with the products at all, it’s just the colours I chose! You’ll see what I mean when you see the swatches shortly!
