Lo and Behold, Rouge Bunny Rouge Made a Gray and Frosty Eyeshadow that I Love: Eclipse Eagle Long-Lasting Eye Shadow

RBR Eclipse Eagle FOTD

Some eyeshadow adjectives that make me wince a little include blue, gray, frosty, powdery… However, I didn’t have much of a doubt that if a company could make a gray and frosty eyeshadow I would love, it would be Rouge Bunny Rouge! Along came Eclipse Eagle Long-Lasting Eye Shadow, a smokey shade that I see myself reaching for often during the cooler months!

RBR Eclipse Eagle Long-Lasting Eye Shadow

Rouge Bunny Rouge Eclipse Eagle (the refill costs 17 euros) is described as the richer and darker sister of the famous Delicate Hummingbird (which I don’t own but have swatched. It is not even a little bit taupe on me. It is a very frosty purple instead). It is one of the shades that I suspect will look very different on different people. On my NC 25 skin tone (with an olive undertone), it is a plummy gray with a silvery frost. If it doesn’t sound like something I would normally wear with ease to you, you would be quite right. However, Rouge Bunny Rouge always seems to work some impossible magic, and Eclipse Eagle makes a great smokey lid shade for me!

Eclipse Eagle is finely-milled and pigmented on its own. It is soft, smooth, and free of fallout. I trust that I have raved enough about the typical Rouge Bunny Rouge eyeshadows here, and saying more would be pretty excessive. In short, they make some of the best eyeshadows I have seen!

Here is how Eclipse Eagle swatches:

In the look, I used Eclipse Eagle on the inner half and Chanel Hasard on the outer half.

Just the right amount of smokey without looking heavy!

Additional makeup worn in this look: Rouge Bunny Rouge Florita Original Skin Blush and Guerlain Lou-Ling Shine Automatique (LE from holiday 2012).

Bottom line: Rouge Bunny Rouge Eclipse Eagle Long-Lasting Eye Shadow is a great lid shade for autumn/winter. It is smokey and somehow dramatic without looking overwhelmingly heavy. It is a shade that will highly possibly look very different on different people, but I doubt anyone would be dissatisfied with the quality!

What do you say? Are you a fan of Eclipse Eagle?

    The color is really interesting! It’s silver, yet kinda soft purple as well. Lovely!

      Hey Melissa, RBR specializes in making the most complex shades!

  • http://www.themistymom.com/ Shari

    I was supposed to pick this up on my first RBR haul but it was sold out on the site I bought from :'( Looks so beautiful, Sunny!! I want this more now.

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

      Oh nooo that’s a bummer! You should pick it up when you have the chance. It’s great for autumn/winter!

    I love Eclipse Eagle, one of my mostly used RBR eye shadows. I placed it inside a trio packaging together with Snow Egret. I took this palette with me to my last trip, I needed nothing else! :-)
    It looks this matches your complexion perfectly. So stunning on you. Love how easy but sophisticated it look.

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

      Hey Sara, yes I remember that post of yours! You made a great trio there! <3

  • ValleyDoll

    This kind of reminds me of Mac Satin Taupe. Love this shade, looks great !

  • Kate Driveller

    I adore EE too! It’s exactly as you say — dramatic but still light.

  • Icaria

    Oh Sunny! At this time I can only dream of the texture! I have a RBR blush that is simply amazing but I’ve never tried their e/s. I’m not sure I’d be comfortable with this particular one but eventualy hope to try others. In the meantime Chanel Hasard is very tempting. I’ll see if I can still find it. :)

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

      Hey Helene, you should definitely try a couple of RBR eyeshadows! I guarantee they’re nothing short of life-changing ;) I use Hasard SO often. It’s something I didn’t foresee but I actually like it enough to take it with me to Taipei!

  • http://rocaille-writes.blogspot.com/ Rocaille

    Great swatches and beautiful look, Sunny! I guess on me Eclipse Eagle pulls a little bit warmer and more brown…? It’s interesting to see how it looks on different skintones :)

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

      Thanks so much, Monika! I think all RBR eyeshadows look different on different people, just because they’re so wonderfully complex! For example, I have swatched Delicate Hummingbird, and it’s SO purple on me! There isn’t even a tiny little bit of taupe in there anymore (which is why I skipped it)!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    SO much cooler on you than on Monika! I love it! But I bet it would pull warmer on me too. It does look like MAC Satin Taupe on you actually!

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

      Hey Tracy, Satin Taupe is actually VERY different from this on me! Skin tones are such an interesting thing!

  • http://www.lenallure.com/ Lena L

    ah…i carefully weighed both delicate humming bird and eclipse eagle and convinced myself i didn’t need both…now i don’t know…;;;
    beautiful beautiful shade on you, Sunny :)

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

      Hey Lena, yeah that’s the one disadvantage of RBR: there aren’t many counters for us to have a swatchfest! If you like Delicate Hummingbird though, I think you’ll like this one!

  • http://wade-ashore.blogspot.com/ Caise

    what a beautiful shade!

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

      Hey Daria, I agree! I bet it’ll be stunning on you!

  • http://nothingspaces.com Carina

    OH MY GOSH. I am dying. This is so pretty… Funny re: your title, because I could never wear grey/silvers! However… THIS LOOKS PERFECT ON YOU. And we have similar skintones… HAHA. Agh, so pretty. Thanks for writing about it! Now, I must find a way to get it. :D

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

      Hey Carina, I hope you’ll like it when you get it! I’m not big on anything grayish but this one is pretty amazing!

  • beauties

    special mix of grey and brown :)

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

      And mauve! I don’t think there’s much brown in there but in any case it’s a very unique shade :)

  • http://makeupmorsels.wordpress.com Makeup Morsels

    Gorgeous shade! Somehow RBR just always makes it work. I wonder if I would be able to wear this…I’ve grown very wary of taupe-y silvers like this one because they never seem to work with my coloring. But you do make a convincing case….

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

      Hey MM, I was really skeptical about taupes in the beginning and I have tried shades that look REALLY horrible on me, but with a little experiment I’m sure you can find taupes that work for you! I don’t know much about your skin tone, but for me the taupe can’t be TOO gray. Also, matte taupes don’t look good on me, unless we’re talking about them as contouring/outer corner shades.

  • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com/ Catherine

    YES, absolutely a fan. Just gorgeous, pure gorgeousness. I keep wanting to try RBR, then I add a bunch of stuff to my cart and get discouraged by the price before checking out. Someeeedaaay though

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

      Thanks, Catherine! I’m not sure if RBR removes VAT for non-European orders, because I know some European webshops do. I hope you’ll try some RBR one day!

  • http://www.glambunctious.com/ Kristen / Glambunctious

    Beautiful! This is one of my fave eyeshadow colors in general. This one reminds me a bit of Chanel Gri-Gri! Lovely on you, babe!

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

      Thanks so much, Kristen! I think Gri-Gri is lighter and definitely not as mauve. I managed to resist the temptation, but it is indeed a great shade!

  • Bellyhead

    Sunny that is so flattering on you! I LOVE this color, too. In fact, I’m a bit of a lunatic about how much I love the RBR eye shadows. :)

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

      Thanks so much, girl! Same here: I have yet purchased a shade I’m not crazy about!

  • http://papayapieces.com/ Sofia

    It looks great Sunny! I keep on reaching for grey eyeshadows lately. Every morning I think I shall wear brown eyeshadow today, then suddenly I’ve put grey on… weird.

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

      Hey Sofia, I guess that’s the season/weather talking ;) If you’re into grayish shades, this might be a good one to add to your stash!

  • http://www.rxbeautychic.com/ RxBeautyChic

    Oh this is such a pretty color! It reminds me of Soft Wash Grey pigment from MAC! I seriously need to get my hands on RBR shadows!

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

      Hey girly, I just checked it out and I think Eclipse Eagle has more mauve in it, while Soft Wash Grey more blue! And yes, you need to try some RBR, and eyeshadows are a great place to start!

  • Lily

    RBR definitely has some great offerings. Thanks for all the recs – I’ll be adding them to my collection one day. Oh, and that olive one too!

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

      You’re welcome, Lily! And YES get Olive Violetear! It’s great if you want a subtle hint of olive in your outer half/contour area!

  • http://www.abeautifulzen.blogspot.ca/ jenn @Abeautifulzen

    would you say this was the sparkly version of hasard?

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

      Hey Jenn, not really! I definitely see more gray in this one, if it makes sense. The two would work well together though!

  • http://www.pinklavenders.com/ Rainy Days & Lattes

    I love how this looks so very elegant without being dramatic or over the top. Beautiful! Another win from Rouge Bunny.

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

      Hey Jen, I agree! They make some of the most interesting eyeshadows in the industry!

  • http://www.phyrra.net/ Phyrra

    That’s a very pretty shade!

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

      Hey Phyrra, I agree! I haven’t tried a shade from them that I don’t loooove!

  • http://beautyreductionista.blogspot.ca/ Liz

    Love it! Still haven’t tried RBR, darn it. LOL

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

      OOOO Liz, you’re missing out! They have some seriously great stuff!

  • Jacqueline Ma

    I have not ventured into RBR eye shadows yet, I’m afraid if I start it will trigger hoarding instinct so as pretty as it is I’m going to resist for the time being. Have I told you how I appreciate the fact that you take time to reply to every comment made. It takes a lot of time and effort and I really love that about you Sunny. Hugs. Keep up with the amazing posts my dear, you are one of my fav beauty bloggers around.

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

      Hey Jacqueline, I’m actually pretty sure it’s a dangerous path for you to go down LOL

      Thanks so much, Jacqueline! I’m blessed with great readers who comment, and I don’t want to drop the ball! It’s nice to keep a conversation going, and Disqus is great for that :)

  • http://bronzerbunny.com/ Joyce (bronzer bunny)

    i just ordered this and olive violetear :) Arrived yesterday. Cant wait to use them!

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

      Oh yesss I hope you’ll like them, Joyce!

  • marciaf

    That’s a beautiful shade. I recently wore Delicate Hummingbird after a long time and had forgotten how pretty it was. Now I need to consider adding this to my collection.

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

      Thanks, Marcia! You should definitely take a a look at this one if you like Delicate Hummingbird!
