Rouge Bunny Rouge Long-lasting Eyeshadow Trumpeter Koel Review, Swatches, EOTD

I have been using When Birds Are Singing Long-lasting Eyeshadow in Trumpeter Koel daily for three weeks now. I usually use it to soften and set my liquid eyeliner. If I am feeling adventurous, I will use it in my outer corners but that does not happen too often. I can't blend to save my life. Haha!

Discover a new powder eye shadow with an astonishing lightweight, creamy touch and unprecedented adherence. This formula creates pure dynamic iridescence while it maintains second skin effect. It has extended 8-hour wear that will stay perfect and look freshly applied all day. Orange-derived Flavonoid improves blood microcirculation, enhances luminosity and serves as free radicals scavenger. (Source: rougebunnyrouge.com/)

Name: Rouge Bunny Rouge When Birds Are Singing Long-lasting Eyeshadow 068 Trumpeter Koel
Price: € 24 for 2 g
Release: April 2012
Made in: Italy

Trumpeter Koel is a pewter grey with silvery blue shimmer particles. It is described as a dark lead-grey with lilac-blue iridescence on the Rouge Bunny Rouge site.

Despite what's shown in the swatches, it is not a dark and intense colour. Even layering does not help it to overpower a black liquid liner that is applied beforehand. Nonetheless, it works brilliantly for me. Grey is not as harsh as a black and that makes it the perfect colour for a subtle day time look.

The shadow has good colour payoff. It has a silky satin finish with zero grit and applies smoothly like butter. The texture alone makes it worth the € 24 price tag.

There was hardly any fallout during the application process. Despite lasting the whole day without smudging or fading, it didn't prove its mettle when I detected creasing along my inner corners. And yes, this is with an eye primer underneath. I always prep my lids with an eye primer whenever I apply makeup, it keeps gunk from building up in the creases of my eyelids.

My look with Trumpeter Koel. For the rest of my eye I used Max Factor Chic Monotone, Kate Super Sharp Liner BK-1, Empro Brown & Black Mascara and Visee Glam Glow Eyes GR-4 for a little bit of green. It makes a refreshing change from the neutral colours that I usually sport.

Since my EOTD is a little lacking, here is how Trumpeter Koel looks like on the RBR model.
