Review: Rouge Bunny Rouge When Birds Are Singing Long-lasting Eye Shadow in Delicate Hummingbird

I just placed an order with Zuneta for some more Rouge Bunny Rouge products!  I am addicted to this brand.  It's expensive, so I have to plan my purchases carefully ... but heaven help me I love it!

In the meantime, I thought it was high time I reviewed my RBR When Birds Are Singing Long-lasting Eye Shadow in Delicate Hummingbird, which I purchased a couple of months ago.  Here is a pic taken outside in daylight, no flash.

More details, photos, and swatches after the jump!

Delicate Hummingbird is a cool-toned taupey plum that reminds me somewhat of Chanel Taupe Grise, only more purple and with much more shimmer and dimension.  It's a gorgeous shade.

In the photos it's coming across as more taupe and as having a silvery shimmer ... but in reality it is definitely purple and has silver and multi-colored reflections.  The dimension is incredible and just can't come across in pictures; I get complements every time I wear this shade.

Here is a pic taken inside with flash:

As is typical of RBR shadows, the formula is very blendable and pigmented.  I routinely get all-day (or evening) wear when I apply it with a primer underneath.  When I remove it hours and hours later, it looks exactly the same as when I applied it.

Here are some swatches - outside in daylight without flash (top) and inside with flash (bottom):

If you are thinking about trying Rouge Bunny Rouge, I highly recommend starting with this product.  You can't really go wrong with any of their eye shadows actually, but this is a universally flattering shade; it will make any eye color pop.

You can only order Rouge Bunny Rouge through Zuneta.  They are a British website, and they ship worldwide.   I talked more about Zuneta in this post.  They are a great company!
