Swatch, FOTD - Rouge Bunny Rouge Long-Lasting Eye Shadow Snowy Egret, Delicate Hummingbird

Here is what I don’t recommend – not blogging over a month!

True I am still struggling with my insane schedule, but I must say it was more difficult to do a new post because I have stopped for long.

I almost never lose my stuff but last month I did lose my makeup bag full of Paul & Joe goodies, which I still feel sour about yet this was a perfect excuse for me to haul some new products.
I went ahead and ordered some Rouge Bunny Rouge pretties from this time.
It was not my first time ordering from the site but the customer service I received was especially nice. I suspect (in a pleasant way) that they read my tweet about having lost my makeup bag since they sent me a very pretty Paul & Joe cosmetic pouch filled with wonderful samples.

(BTW, the price on Beautyhabit is more affordable than from the UK Rouge Bunny Rouge site. Why is that?)

Today, I just want to talk about two eye shadow colors I got (so I have some more left for next posts…).

Rouge Bunny Rouge Long-Lasting eye shadow Delicate Hummingbird

I had to get this famous purplish taupe although I was almost sure I had something like this somewhere in my stash.
This is more purple and has a bit of metallic sheen compared to NARS Lhasa for instance.
The texture is very smooth and creamy so the color blends in beautifully.
I was initially drawn to the newest color Eclipse Eagle (which is supposedly a darker sister), but I am glad I chose Delicate Hummingbird instead cause it is a more versatile color that I can wear as a sheer wash or a main color for deeper smoky looks.
(Frankly though, I am kicking myself for not having bought both.)

Rouge Bunny Rouge Long-Lasting eye shadow Snowy Egret

Snowy Egret is probably the most interesting and prettiest light color I have seen in a while. It is described as “smoked palest gold iridescence”.
Perfect for blending out those harsh smoky edges and giving depths to the look.

I did not use any primer on my arm. You can tell how pigmented they are.

I forgot to take a close-up pic on my eye makeup, but here are a couple of overall looks I put together using these two colors.

It seems that the fat from my cheeks are migrating to my tummy, which is utterly unjust. (ugh!)
