Rouge Bunny Rouge Long Lasting Eye Shadow Abyssinian Catbird and Unforgettable Oriole


Rouge Bunny Rouge Eye shadows have been on my radar for quite some time but I have never made myself get any of them. Sunny from Mostly Sunny and Clare from Visionary Beauty hadve been not so subtly tempting me to try out Abyssinian Catbird and I have been eyeing it on Luxola.com ever since. It was always out of stock until recently and when they had 25% discount I jumped at the chance to get it. You know me, I can't just get one so I decided to get Unforgettable Oriole as well because I wanted something to pair with Abyssinian Catbird. 

It is SGD $42.80 on www.luxola.com but I manage to score each at SGD $32.10 with free shipping. Woohoo! Did I mention how fast shipping is? I got the two days after ordering them.



These come is sturdy black plastic casings. You can see here their size relative to a Singapore dollar coin.







I am impressed with these eye shadows. They are buttery soft and blend very well. They don't cause any fall out. Abyssinian Catbird is a darn gorgeous shade. It is an olive, copper and gold shade that suits my coloring very well. Unforgettable Oriole may look like a boring colour but the creamy champagne gold shade with its delicate shimmer hooked me in. It brightens my lids with its pretty shimmer.


Here I have Abyssinian Catbird worn close to the lids and blended upwards. I used Unforgettable Oriole on my brow bones and over Abyssinian Catbird. I also used Burberry Porcelain to blend.





The whole look.


And what I used.


I went out for brunch with my BFF D wearing this look. We went to Pies and Coffee at Rochester Mall for a Saturday brunch not too long ago. I used to like their food but I was sorely disappointed with the service and the food. The Wagyu Beef Cheek pie is still good though.




The mish mash of too sweet belgian waffles that were too hard and the lack lustre sausage and egg was very forgettable.


The strawberry tart was delicious but the chocolate tart could have been heated and softer in texture. Instead of going on a rant, I can only say that the service was sorely lacking.


Here is my darling BFF D.



Where was I? Oh yes, back to Abyssinian Catbird and Unforgettable Oriole. They are pretty damn awesome. I still will not fork out full price for these but I suggest you keep an eagle eye on these on Luxola and jump at the chance at getting them during their fabulous discount promos.

I leave you with Mostly Sunny and Visionary Beauty's post about these Rouge Bunny Rouge eye shadows. Be warned though, reading them might make you want them even more ;)

    1. I guess it was sooner or later that I delved into RBR, doesn't helped that I have so many enablers around like you Clare. Now what would be my next shadow to get? ;)
