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!
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!
