Part of my recent purchase from Zuneta included Rouge Bunny Rouge When Birds Are Singing Long-lasting Eyeshadow in Abyssinian Catbird ($34.12, 2.4 grams). Described as metallic bronze with gold highlights, I'd say that's accurate, though I also see green.
This eyeshadow is incredibly pigmented, and the texture feels almost cream based. You only need to tap your brush into the pan once and then tap if off, as it takes very little product to deliver outstanding color payoff. I like using the Hakuhodo S133 brush because its soft, flexible bristles grab onto the powder and hold it so there's less fallout—because there is a bit of fallout with Abyssinian Catbird, which I control by apply in very thin layers.
After this eyeshadow has warmed up on the skin, it gleams. I don't even mind the tiny bit of oil breakthrough on my lids midday (which I gently blend out with a fingertip) because the oil only enhances the beautiful glowy effect. Even with a very thin application, the olive-taupeness does something crazy to my blue-grey-green eyes, making them appear almost feline. Although my eyes are blue, they have grey rims and an amber starburst around the pupils, so they can look green in the right conditions, and Abyssinian Catbird makes m eyes look dark olive green.
Alas, even though my eyes looked incredible, when I stood back and took in the whole affect, I was saddened that the green undertones did no favors to my skin. Unfortunately, Abyssinian Catbird draws out the red around my nose, cheeks, and chin, but anyone who doesn't have pink-toned skin should love this.
Here's Abyssinian Catbird swatched on white paper.
The only eyeshadow I own that comes close in comparison is Edward Bess Intimate, a shimmering gold khaki taupe. They are not the same. I used to think Intimate was pigmented, but that was before I tried Rouge Bunny Rouge eyeshadows. Though both are deeply pigmented, gorgeous shades, Intimate takes one small step behind in texture. Abyssinian Catbird has a pearlized mossy patina, and next to its glistening verdigris shimmer, Intimate can come off a bit like sludge.
(Not that sludge is a bad thing! Sludge is earthy, with blends of brown and green, just what you find in these eyeshadows. It's not like I am calling Intimate "bilge water!" )
I still believe that Intimate is a worthy, even essential, eyeshadow of this color type—especially for warm-toned women with blue eyes. It is less shimmery than Abyssinian Catbird, so I find the finish to be a more subtle daytime look.
Rouge Bunny Rouge eyeshadows can be used dry or wet (which extends the wear). They truly are long lasting and crease proof. and blend exceptionally well.
Bottom line: A glowing earthy-bronzed must have.
Oh, and in case you were wondering ... I have catbirds at my feeder this time of year, though not Abyssinian catbirds.
