Review/Swatches Rouge Bunny Rouge When Birds Are Singing... Eye Shadow

Per the Rouge Bunny Rouge website:

"Discover a new powder eye shadow with an astonishing lightweight, creamy touch and unprecedented adherence. This formula creates pure dynamic iridescence while it maintains second skin effect. It has extended 8-hour wear that will stay perfect and look freshly applied all day. Orange-derived Flavonoid improves blood microcirculation, enhances luminosity and serves as free radicals scavenger."

Such attention to detail! Look at the gorgeous RBR signet on the shadows
L to R, T to B: Unforgettable Oriole, Periwinkle Cardinal, Abyssinian Catbird
Solstice Halcyon, Fire-Tailed Sunbird, Volcano Fairy-Wren

These eye shadows are really some of the creme de la creme of what RBR offers. They are smooth, pigmented, and glide on the lid like nobody's business! The colors are true to pan and contain the most magnificent luminosity (unless, of course, you purchase one of the matte shades). These really are some of the best eye shadows you can purchase, in my opinion. They may seem expensive, and at almost 35 dollars a pop they are, but they are twice the size of a MAC eyeshadow and the quality is unsurpassed. I purchased six eyeshadows, and I plan to purchase many more in the future once my bank account allows it lol. 

Swatched left to right: Unforgettable Oriole, Periwinkle Cardinal, Abyssinian Catbird, Solstice Halcyon, Fire-Tailed Sunbird, Volcano Fairy-Wren

Just the names themselves are enchanting! Here are my thoughts on each:

Unforgettable Oriole: A perfect golden toned highlight shade! The shimmer is not over the top, just enough to give a glow to the browbone and tear duct!

Periwinkle Cardinal: A gorgeous ocean teal green, applies very nicely for a paler shade. This would be gorgeous with Volcano Fairy-Wren as a smoky eye!

Abyssinian Catbird: Probably the most well-known RBR shadow, and for good reason! A great green, bronze, gold shadow, all rolled into one! The dimension and pigmentation in this one is crazy! So smooth and buttery, not to mention it makes blue/green eyes look FAB!

Solstice Halcyon: A gorgeous taupey-purple shade. More matte than the other shadows I purchased, but still a hint of shimmer. This is a perfect crease color! It blends fabulously and really fades out darker colors well.

Fire-Tailed Sunbird: A great shimmery peachy-coral shade! Really unique and would be pretty for a bronzey-summery look. This would look especially pretty on warm toned skins. 

Volcano Fairy-Wren: A really great black shot through with silver micro-shimmer! This is gorgeous and perfect for a smokey eye! I am definitely gonna do a look with this blended out with Periwinkle Cardinal and using Vera eye khol to smudge- It's gonna be fabulous! I highly suggest this just because it's so hard to find such a dark, pigmented black that's as blendable as this one.

All these shadows are gorgeous, you really can't go wrong. The do last all day without creasing and the color definitely comes out and stays true to pan. Expensive, but will make you feel like pure luxury every time you apply them!
