Rouge Bunny Rouge Delicate Hummingbird
Friday, March 20, 2015
Rouge Bunny Rouge was recently on HauteLook again (for the second time I believe) and I made good on my word: I bought more of those excellent shadows. Delicate Hummingbird was not available as a single cased shadow, so I bought a refill pan with the intention of buying a trio shadow keeper in the future.
Like the other shadows that I'ved tried from the When Birds Are Singing Long Lasting Shadow line, DH is creamy and very pigmented. I like that these shadows have enough "slip" to really adhere well to eye primer, it allows me to really build up the intensity of the color or wear it as wash. I feel that this formulation allows a lot of the sparkle to stick, which often times gets lost during the blending process.
Delicate Hummingbird did resemble a few shadows that I already had, so I pulled them out for comparison. NARS Habanera was more sparkly and had a deeper tone while Rock & Republic Tempting (discontinued) was more metallic with a finer sheen. If Habanera and Tempting had a baby, it most certainly would be Delicate Hummingbird.
While I'm slightly annoyed at myself for once again buying a similar color, I have to say that DH's superior formula to the harder pan of NARS Habanera makes it easier to blend and utilize in looks.

Usually RBR refills are $19, but they go for $10 during Hautelook sales. Each pan is 26mm (or the same size as MAC pans) and Rouge Bunny Rouge sells both duo and trio keepers.
Hope you are having a wonderful week!
