Rouge Bunny Rouge Capricious Nightingale Eyeshadow

source

Wanting a cool-based eyeshadow, I purchased Rouge Bunny Rouge Capricious Nightingale, a cherry-blossom pink with silver-white microshimmers in a gleaming metallic finish. Capricious Nightingale was used on the model in the above photo, along with Delicate Hummingbird eyeshadow (reviewed here) and Vermeer blush wand (reviewed here), in the Journey Through The Stars campaign.

There's not much to say about this eyeshadow, other than it is pink, beautiful, and glowy.




Indoors, natural light, no flash

Direct sunlight






There aren't many reviews on this color, but be sure to check out London Makeup Girl's interpretation of the Journey Through the Stars look, especially her snazzy necklace.

Bottom line: Pink heaven

Oh, and in case you aren't yet aware, we can now buy Rouge Bunny Rouge stateside at one of my favorite beauty e-tailers, BeautyHabit.com. (Teaser: I am also going to be releasing a large number of like-new RBR items in my upcoming blog sale, so stay tuned!)

  1. GORGEOUS pictures! Very pretty shade!!! Does it read too pink on the eyes? If you are "releasing" Solstice let me know!!!!

    1. lola, it does not read too pink on my eyes, but my eyelid skin is sort of dusky lavender anyway. I would wear this color on the inner third, blended into a matte or satin mid-toned shade, or at the inner corners, or blended out well as a brow highlight. Capricious Nightingale is at least as shimmery as Alabaster Starling.

      Ah, Solstice Halcyon! I haven't quite made up my mind about it, but my inclination would be to hang onto it—partly because it does look good on me and also because it's the only RBR eyeshadow I depotted, so I feel it's rather spoiled.

    2. I might have to put it on my RBR list!! Then you should keep Solstice Halcyon! If not, depotted or not- I will probably snap it up from you!

    3. Tee hee -- if you're "releasing" RBR, please put me on the list!

      @Lola and @Zuzu: I love reading your interactions on both this blog and on Lola's blog. You guys are hilarious and extremely knowledgeable. I feel like a creepy Nosy Parker but I can't help myself.

    5. BooBooNinja- that's so nice of you to say :D Don't feel like a creepy Nosy Parker- you can jump right in!

    6. Ha ha, the two of you. I have to do blog sale prep today, but the sun is shining and I want to be out in my gardens. Waaaah.

    7. I surely hope you went outside! It was beautiful where I am and I went outside... instead of doing work. :)

    8. I did ... a little. And it was, indeed, gorgeous. But I had to force myself back inside to start taking photos for blog sale. I spent almost 5 hours, and I am only a third of the way through my stuff! Gaah, I can't wait to send these items on their merry way, intro the hands of someone who will love them.

    9. Imagine all the happiness you will be spreading, and the new, more suitable makeup you'll be able to get with the proceeds!

    10. Believe it or not, this time I am giving it away. I am totally happy with my paired-down makeup, and I am donating the proceeds to the kitty shelter, since I didn't make my annual contribution this Christmas, and we haven't adopted a kitty from them in a while. :)

      I might keep a little for myself, but the bulk should help pay for some kitty surgery or food or whatever those poor, captured strays and abandoned pets need.

  2. I had wondered about getting that shade but thought it might be too frosty and too pink, however it does look very nice and I am starting to feel tempted, mind you I don't really suit pinky shadows.....still I'm not one for common sense so I'm sure to pick it up at some point x

    1. It is pink, but it's light. That said, it might overwhelm you if pink isn't your thing---and you seem to prefer your pinks muted with plenty of beige. Try to see it in person if you can ... which is a ridiculous statement since none of us can really do that. Party at London Makeup Girl's house!

  3. Pink, beautiful and glowy sounds right up my street. I haven't got this shade but it's definitely going on my ever-expanding RBR list.

    1. Meeta, I think this might suit you very well. If I recall you liked Batiste Grayling, and this color is about as cool and about as pigmented. Different formula, to be sure, but I think the pink would harmonize beautifully with your skin ... unless your undertones are quite yellow on your eyelids. Then you could turn lab rabbity.

      I wish we could buy wee samples of RBR eyeshadows, especially since there are no RBR counters anywhere besides Russia (and maybe Germany and somewhere in the Middle East ...)

  4. Uh oh. Blog Sale? You may as well just come up with a bulk price for the whole shebang and ship it all off to me. ;-)

    1. Heh, I must release it! It's time ... I will never use all of this, and I hate to think of it sitting around getting old and being unloved. I haven't gotten around to it yet because it's massive. :P

  5. This is GORGEOUS!!!
    AND BLOG SALE???? Oh my I better start saving the pennies!

    1. It's taken me since Christmas to organize it! All that's left is pictures and the usage writeup.

  6. It's true that I don't see very many reviews for this one on line, but I've always been curious about it, since pink shadows (when they're done right) seem to work pretty well for me. Glad to know that this one is up to the usual RBR standard!

    1. Pink is hard to do right, especially with a color that's so blatantly pink. But, yes, the texture is divine.

  7. Oh, how I sometimes wish that you had a mirror-image best friend blogger with brown eyes and warm undertones!!
    All the makeup you describe sounds delicious, but I am always looking for the versions with warm-goldish tones in the products that you adore.

    Oh, well, off to slap some olive green shadow on my lids and brick red color on my lips!
    Have a wonderful weekend!!

    1. sunlitt, but my coloring is in the minority in the blogosphere! Check out the following blogs, all of whom I am nearly sure have warm skin, brown eyes, and light to medium in skin tone.

      The Beauty Look Book
      Makeup Never Sleeps
      The Unknown Beauty Blog
      Cute and Mundane
      delicate hummingbird
      Front Row Beauty
      London Makeup Girl (not 100% sure she's warm, but she's at least neutral)
      The Non-Blonde (not sure about her skin warmth/coolness)

      Of course there are many others with warm skin (at least I think so), but their eyes are NOT brown, like Cafe Makeup, Makeup Magpie, Pink Sith ...

      And lots of bloggers with brown eyes and cool-toned skin, but I won't muddle thing further. :^)
