For me of the most amazing products of this month is the new Rouge Bunny Rouge Silk Aether Long-Lasting Duo Cream Eye Shadow, that I got a few weeks ago along with a bunch of new RBR fall makeup items (photos, swatches). As the name suggests this is a new duo cream eye shadow product in No.085 Gossamer Wing which comes in a new packaging resembling more of a duo lip gloss rather than an eyeshadow, but I personally really like it like this and it even appears classy, elegant and chic to me. For some reason when I first open the box and held the product in my hand, the packaging got me thinking of Giorgio Armani products which are so luxurious and glamorous looking.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Gossamer Wing Long-Lasting Duo Cream Eye Shadow ($45.00 / €42.00 for 8 ml / 0.27 fl oz) features two shades: Atlas Swallowtail a velvety cafe latte and and Brocade Skipper a silky luminous beige. They are both gorgeous colors with a soft and luminous matte finish, which doesn’t make them look dull at all and on the contrary they bring luminosity to your makeup while keeping that matte appearance.
This is a detail that I simply adore as it doesn’t make my day makeup look flat or too washed out. I like combining the shades, using them on the lid, or applying the darker one on the crease while the gorgeous golden champagne goes on the inner corner of my lid to add luminosity and brighten my eyes, making the entire look appear fresh.
The formula is super creamy, feels incredibly lightweight, like I wouldn’t even be wearing an eyeshadow, and dries down instantly to this semi-matte finish, which is also easily blendable.They apply evenly and easily across the lid, gliding so smoothly thanks to the doe-footed applicator which picks up just the right amount of color for a single perfect application.
Applied on a single layer the deliver a semi-opaque color coverage which can be built up and intensified to a more pigmented shade if you so want it. I love how smooth these creamy eye shadows feel, how well they blend without even creasing (tested with and without an eyeshadow primer) and keeping that long-lasting color for hours on end.
I wore RBR Long-Lasting Duo Cream Eye Shadow in different combinations over the past few weeks and it was either as a base for different powder eyeshadows, wore simply on their own on my bare lids or applied over Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer or UD Primer Potion, this product really got me to the same conclusion, that’s is an amazing cream eye shadow that can be wore even for those with oily lids, like me.
I had about 7 hours wear with this formula, applied directly on the lid without an eyeshadow primer, before I started a slightly fading of the color. Tested over an eyeshadow primer, this RBR Duo Cream Eye Shadow kept its amazing color for more than 8 hours, without fading, creasing or settling into fine lines.

These colours are glorious and they look as if they are easy to apply and highly pigmented. What other colours are there in the range?
