Rouge Bunny Rouge Embrace of Cashmere Loose Glitter Pigment Is So Smooth that it Feels Like Silk Instead!

RBR Embrace of Cashmere FOTD

The words loose, glitter, and pigment are three words in the cosmetic world that make me cringe. Guess which brand worked its magic to not only make it workable but actually a joy to use? Why, it’s Rouge Bunny Rouge, of course! I plucked up enough courage to pick up Embrace of Cashmere Loose Glitter Pigment (1.5 grams. 23 euros) with my order. If only every pigment in the world could be so easy to use, I wouldn’t mind owning more at all!

Rouge Bunny Rouge Embrace of Cashmere

Let’s set the record straight: Rouge Bunny Rouge Embrace of Cashmere Loose Glitter Pigment does not contain glitter, and it is far from being as fussy as loose glitter. If you pour some out or move the applicator in the tube a bit more vigorously, you can see it is loose eyeshadow alright. However, with the smart packaging, it for sure doesn’t apply like one!

Once you remove the cap, you see the handle of the applicator. There is nothing tricky about this: you can simply pull it out and use it directly on your lids! I have a bit more than enough for one eye every time I pull the applicator out. It produces next to no fallout most of the time. Occasionally I can see a teeny bit, but the color is light so I can simply flick it off.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Embrace of Cashmere is a shimmery beige champagne. It looks like a fawn where the light doesn’t directly hit, so it is something that creates an illusion of depth and dimension on its own. Being a loose shadow, the shimmer in this shade is incredible. At the same time however, it is not over the top! Embrace of Cashmere has such an amazingly smooth texture that if you were to tell me it is a cream shadow, I would believe you. Even without a primer, it goes onto my lids easily and wears superbly well (I tested it out for 8 hours. It stayed intact. Not even all cream shadows can achieve this)!

Here is the swatch:

Rouge Bunny Rouge Embrace of Cashmere is an amazingly brightening shade that I enjoy enormously on the inner half of my lids. I have worn it on its own as well, and I am happy with the depth it creates. You can see it on the inner half of my lids here:

Once again, I have found a go-to lid shade I won’t get tired of from Rouge Bunny Rouge!

Bottom line: Even if you are really worried about the potential mess of a loose eyeshadow, I would encourage you to try a Rouge Bunny Rouge Loose Glitter Pigment. It is so easy to use and performs even better than many pressed/cream/hybrid shadows I own. I enjoy Embrace of Cashmere enormously for its shimmer and depth. It is so much more than a run-of-the-mill beige!

Where do you stand on pigment? Do you play a lot with it, or do you avoid it as much as you can? I have seen many truly beautiful pigments, but I always give up when I think about the potential mess or trouble of pressing them into eyeshadows. I guess I am lazy!

    Gorgeous! I love these pigments too–hands down the BEST I have ever tried! :D

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Becca, your post really helped me make the decision! Finally a loose product that I don’t have to treat as carefully as some kind of bio-hazard material!

  • Chris El

    What’re you wearing on your cheeks??

      Hey Chris, it’s Illamasqua Katie/Ambition. The review will be up sometime this week!

    I am proud to say that I am NOT afraid of pigments :-) I love their – hello miss obvious – pigmentation and I don’t mind making a little extra effort during the application, what with them being all loose and shizzles. I’ve never used an applicator like this though. Sure looks interesting.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      OOO good for you, Melissa! I am very clumsy, so basically it’s a disaster in the making if you give me a pot of loose glitter… or a bag of it…

      This one however, unless I manage to drop it on the floor, I’m probably good!

  • VickyM

    This looks very pretty and natural on you, it reminds of Chanel Moon River stylo :) . I don´t own any loose eye shadows but this is really pretty and the packaging looks cute.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Vicky! Moon River is a lot more taupe. I own one pot of real loose eyeshadow for the moment, and I haven’t had the courage to give it a proper go yet! I treated it like some kind of potential bio-hazard when I was photographing it too LOL

      The packaging of Embrace of Cashmere is very very user-friendly. I kid you not!

  • beauties

    love the colour :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      It’s something I can whip out on any given day!

  • Icaria

    Oh that is nice! I’m one of those scared of loose anything! This seems so lovely and it’s stunning on you.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Helene! Unless you drop this on the floor, I’d say you’re good! Take a look at the shades because they are stunning!

  • Lifeandlensofbeauty

    i can’t wait to try this! i have sleeping under a mandarin tree and it looks gorgeous – almost duochrome!!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      OOO yeah I have some more on my wish list now. Sleeping under a Mandarin Tree is definitely one of them!

  • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com/ Catherine

    Oh wow just the title alone is enough to make me want this. I love these sorts of colors on you Sunny, this reminds me of a Laura Mercier shadow stick color you have that looked equally lovely on you. Interesting applicator, I haven’t seen any quite like it

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Aww thanks, Catherine! I think you’re talking about Sand Glow. It’s very pretty too, but the two are significantly different ;)

      The packaging is similar to the PIXI Fairy Dust and Guerlain Fard Métal. I still have to try the Guerlain one out, but so far this is the easiest applicator to use ever!

  • http://kelly-yes.blogspot.com Kelly

    This is beautiful. I’m surprised it is even considered a glitter! It doesn’t seem like one at all. RBR keep popping up lately on my blog feed. Such a popular brand!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Kelly, I think the name is a little unfortunate to be honest LOL

      RBR is a great brand, and they just had a free shipping deal a while ago. I think that helped ;)

  • Ira

    Amazing look! So great:)

  • wheetnee

    Hopefully I can find this brand in London! I never tried anything with loose glitter because I’m 99% sure it would end up on my desk instead of where I want it to be! But this one looks like a winner for not having glitter :D It really brightens up the eyelids.and what lip colour are you wearing?

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Whitney, out of curiosity I checked, but there is no Rouge Bunny Rouge counter/store in London :( I got Embrace of Cashmere because it’s a great neutral I’ll want to wear all the time, and now I’m already looking at other shades LOL

      I’m wearing NARS Montego Bay on my lips. I’ll blog about it soon. What I like the most about this lipstick is it somehow makes teeth whiter, even though it doesn’t appear to have a lot of blue in it!

  • http://MyLuciteDreams.com/ MyLuciteDreams

    Pigments have great shimmer and color payoff, I love them for that but they always cause me a mess. MUFE star powder is a favorite. I was considering picking up one of these as well, RBR love!
    Very lovely and delicate on you

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Taylor, I have seen the MUFE ones and love how a lot of them look, but I am so sure I’ll do something stupid and make a mess, so I never got any! You should try one of these!

  • Lily

    Loose pigments that feel like silk. You had be there, girl! And I love how you wear it. This shade is definitely brightening.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Lily! It really is very very finely-milled!

  • Krystle Kouture

    This looks great. The colors is so pretty, and the packaging is genius. I always worry I’ll spill pigment jars (ala MAC).

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Same here! I was recently given a pot of MAC pigment. I have photographed and swatched it, but I am so so scared something horrible will happen so I haven’t tried it on! I suppose I will soon. I’m just putting it off!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    It’s probably the first pigment that really look ethereal on the lids! really pretty!
    I love loose pigments, but for some reason I like playing with them in the fall. Probably because they are so metallic and bright i guess! This one is less in your face but I like it!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Tracy, you have a great point! This one is not too much at all. I’d happily wear it on my lids all the time!

    By now I’m convinced that RBR can do no wrong. I’d have died for this shade this time last year but feel okay with what I have now. But someday, I’ll have to do some major RBR hauling!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Liz, I definitely feel the same way! I was so curious about these and I just had to try one!
