Rouge Bunny Rouge Fire Drops Loose Glitter Pigments in Eaten all the Cherries, Wishing for Wings, Caress of Mink, Silk Aether Long Lasting Cream Eye Shadow in Chiffon Ringlet, Review, Swatches & FOTD

I have a few posts lined up for this week and firstly I would like to talk about a product I always wanted to try out but lost in the hectic of limited collections, somehow couldn't do it earlier. Rouge Bunny Rouge's Fire Drops.

There were times when Rouge Bunny Rouge Online Store was not available and we would order them from Zuneta (an online shop doesn't exist anymore) and those pretty tubes were always out of stock. I am so glad that those days are over.

Loose Pigment is stored in a chic transparent tube, very pretty packaging as we would expect from Rouge Bunny Rouge. Once the black cap is off, there is a stopper which can be pulled out of the tube.

At one end of the stopper there is a slim pointed sponge to pick up the product. Now I have read some mixed reviews about the usefulness of this since some people do like using brushes. I have to say, I prefer this packaging to some other open ones which makes loose glitter get all over the place once you want to get just a tiny bit of it out. I also prefer this design to the package of Guerlain's Fard Metal from last summer, which were really very hard to work with. With Fire Drops I take the sponge out, it doesn't kick any powder around. I gently tap it at the back of my hand and work with my brush from there. If I am late in the morning, I found myself padding them directly on my lids using the sponge and it worked well that way too.

Now getting over the fact that the packaging is so pretty and useful, let's talk about how these perform. Fire Drops are called "Loose Glitter Pigments" which I think might be a little confusing for some. They are certainly shimmery but the shimmer is finer than what I would call a glitter. They have a beautiful iridescent quality to them and some transparency which makes them qualify for an application on top of your eye shadow to give a little bit of something to an eye look. I opted for three shades, 

Eaten all the Cherries: Love the name! This is a light pink with golden shimmer. The shimmer can be seen easily, which makes the shade appear duo chrome. 
Wishing for Wings: A soft lavender which gives the subtle iridescent glow once padded on a natural base.
Caress of Mink: Mid-toned bronze brown. This one is the most opaque of Fire Drops range and therefore Can be used all over the lid for a natural eye look with a unique transparency and glow.

Below I applied the shades directly on my eye primer. I used Caress of Mink on the outer corner, Eaten all the Cherries on the inner corner and Wishing for Wings in the middle. You can see the soft iridescent look these give, which doesn't look like any of the products I have in my stash. Since the line of Rouge Bunny Rouge is about that understated beauty, I can understand that their way of defining a glitter is fine, iridescent  and transparent but in no ways over the top.

Here is the whole look, coupled with a silk scarf since how these shadows play with light reminded me of silk fabric. On my lips I am wearing Rouge Bunny Rouge Sheer Lipstick in Fluttering Sighs.

Another way to use Fire Drops is to pad them over a darker matte base. To show you how they perform that way, I would like to first introduce Silk Aether Long Lasting Cream Eye Shadow in Chiffon Ringlet. Chiffon Ringlet is a medium to deep natural brown and has a cream to liquid consistency which can be sheered out or build up.

For the eye look below, I applied Chiffon Ringlet all over the lid and padded Fire Drops in Eaten all the Cherries on the inner corner and Caress of Mink on the outer corner. As you see the matte quality of Chiffon Ringlet takes down the iridescent shimmery quality of Fire Drops a little, which turns out to be a very wearable everyday natural look.

For eyes I also padded some Dramatic Lash Mascara Mega Plums in Oxblood Panache over my Chanel Le Volume Mascara in Noir to make the green of my eyes pop. I lined my upper lashline as well as my water line with Rouge Bunny Rouge Long Lasting Eye Pancil with Lola.

For my Rouge Bunny Rouge face below (can we call it like this? ;-) ) I am also wearing Colour Burst Lipstick in The Plot Thickens, Original Skin Blush in Orpheline. Oh and I am using their loose finishing powder for the last weeks which you had already seen in several FOTDs lately. I intend to review it soon.

Just a hint, I padded some Eaten all the Cherries on the top of my cheeks as highlighter, it worked really well.

Final thoughts: Fire Drops is a unique product for its fine shimmer, semi-transparent and seriously pretty iridescent quality. Rouge Bunny Rouge redefines glitter in a unique way, very much fitting to the idea of their make-up line; understated natural beauty.

  1. I have Embrace of Cashmere and it's hands down the best loose eyeshadow I own! If all loose eyeshadows were so fuss-free, I wouldn't avoid them like plague!

    I heard Caress of Mink is very similar to Guerlain Bronze Ora from last summer (I think it's Helen from Lola's Secret Beauty Blog that pointed this out). It is a shade I still get a big kick out of and use often. If I ever run out, I'm getting Caress of Mink for sure :)

    1. Ooh Embrace of Cashmere. I want to try that one next. I am going to check the difference between Caress of Mink but I think the texture is very different. I find Metal Fard are more opaque, this one is more about iridescence less about color but you are right the shades can be close.

  2. Wow these look magical on you! I'm now kicking myself for passing on these beauties when I hauled from them during their sale late last year. Time to plan my next haul!!

    1. Packaging is really lovely, and surely is the subtle shimmer.

  4. I would probably apply these straight from the sponge as well. I'm all about less time spent, and where other people can be neat and precise with a brush, I still manage to get shimmer everywhere. I've wanted Sleeping Under a Mandarin Tree (sleeping? sitting? Their names are so long sometimes I find them a bit hard to remember! lol) for quite a while but now I think Eaten all the Cherries and Wishing for Wings are joining it on my wishlist. :)

    1. Yes I see your point. I am also applying my makeup the shortest possible way in the morning and every second saved is a good thing lol. Eaten all the Cherries is wonderful because you can also use it as a highlighter or mix with your blush for doe additional dimension. Wishing for Wings is great to tap over any eye shadow to add that magical touch to it :-)
