Name: Loose Glitter Pigment Fire Drops in Embrace Of Cashmere
Brand: Rouge Bunny Rouge
Size: 1.8g
Price: €23,00

From Rouge Bunny Rouge’s website:
The formula contains a super high percentage of pearl, which will grant your eyes a marvellous shine and luminosity but with a weightless feel. We added Sodium PCA, a natural moisturiser that maintains the water balance of the skin, makes the texture soft and elastic and the application creamy and easy. A sponge-tipped wand enclosed in a practical bottle will safely keep the pigment inside and let it out only when you want it.

What I liked:
– good colour payoff
– shimmers aren’t over the top
– soft texture blends like a breeze
– application is mess-free
– longlasting

What I didn’t like:
– I honestly can’t think of anything

There was a time, a few years ago, when I used pigments all the time. I was just drawn to all the pretty colours. Loose eyeshadow shades are usually more complex than their pressed powder counterparts available in drugstores and department stores. They are infused with multi-coloured shimmers, duochrome effects, and shiny pearl particles that make your eyes stand out.

But they can also be very messy and time consuming to apply. That’s why my loose eyeshadow collection has been languishing, forgotten, in a drawer for the past couple of years. I just don’t have the time for them anymore. And if I did, I’d never choose one with glitters. Shimmers, I adore. Glitters, not so much. So, when I received a sample of Rouge Bunny Rouge Loose Glitter Pigment Fire Drop in Embrace Of Cashmere, I was sure I wouldn’t have much use for it. I already saw it joining its cousins in my pigments graveyard.

I couldn’t have been more wrong. Despite their name, the Fire Drops don’t contain glitters. I would say it’s more of a finely milled, multi-coloured shimmer. Specifically, Embrace of Cashmere is shot through with red, green, and gold shimmers that make this otherwise classic soft gold shade really stand out. Yet, the shining effect isn’t over the top. You could easily get away with wearing this at the office too.

Unless you use it wet, or on top of a sticky base such as Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy. Then, both the colour payoff (which is very good, but soft, even when used dry) and the shine are amped up a notch. But in both cases, its silky smooth texture makes blending a breeze.

But the best thing about Embrace Of Cashmere is the almost complete lack of fallout. A couple of times I found a few specks under my eyes, but these were exceptions. Usually, whenever I use it, I get no fallout at all. And my pigment, being a sample size, comes in a jar. The full size packaging is a tube with a sponge applicator that promises to minimize fallout even more. So, if the only thing that was stopping you from trying this was the mess, go safely ahead. Its application is quick and hassle-free.

My favourite way of using Embrace of Cashmere? Dry, on the inner part of the lid. That way, its brightening effect makes my small eyes look bigger and more awake for the rest of the day. I’ve only used it with a primer, and it stays put from morning till evening. No fading or creasing whatsoever. Now, what shade to try next?

Don’t let the name deceive you. Rouge Bunny Rouge Loose Glitter Pigment Fire Drops in Embrace of Cashemere contains shimmers, not glitters, and hardly causes any fallout. It also has great colour payoff, a soft texture that blends like a dream, and good staying power.

I’ve been seeing reviews of these everywhere. I too always stayed away from pigments because of the fallout and difficulty in applying. These sound and look perfect. Love the shade that you got, and it look lovely on you
