Rouge Bunny Rouge Blue Roan Satin Eyeliner Nocturnal Ink

Rouge Bunny Rouge made new felt-tip liquid eyeliner? Count me in! I got to try Blue Roan Satin Eyeliner Nocturnal Ink, and for the most part we get along really well!

Rouge Bunny Rouge Blue Roan

Rouge Bunny Rouge Satin Eyeliner Nocturnal Ink (1ml/0.034 oz. 27 euros) has a slightly rubberized part for easy grip. It claims to be quick-drying, transfer-proof, and long-wearing. There are three shades available for the moment, including Friesian (black), Dark Bay (ebony brown), and Blue Roan (Midnight Petrol Blue).

I might have mentioned that I can really only use a liquid eyeliner when it has a felt tip, which is why I am very happy Rouge Bunny Rouge made it that way! The tip of Blue Roan is long, fine, and soft. It is flexible enough not to feel like I am poking myself blind with a marker, but not so flexible that it becomes hard to control. I can easily get a clean and opaque line by lying it down sideways, but I can also gently dot it along my lower lash line with the tip for a softer look. Rouge Bunny Rouge isn’t joking about how quick-drying it is, either. I can pretty much immediately open my eyes without making a mess! At the same time, it doesn’t produce much of a cooling or tightening sensation. I’d like to think the formula is more gentle!

In my humble opinion, Blue Roan is the most interesting shade out of the three in the line-up. There aren’t that many blue felt-tip liquid liners on the market as far as I can tell, and the blue of Blue Roan is not very common at all! It looks more like a blackened teal to me. The finish is more satin than lacquered.

Here is how Blue Roan swatches:

I did a quick look to show you how Blue Roan actually looks on. I used Rouge Bunny Rouge Bohemian Waxwing on the inner two thirds, Bobbi Brown Slate on the outer third, and Bobbi Brown Beige Shimmer Wash in the inner corners. I lined my upper and lower lash line with Blue Roan before smudging my lower lash line out with Bobbi Brown Rich Navy (all the Bobbi Brown shades are found in last summer’s limited edition Navy & Nude Eye Palette, though except for Rich Navy, the shades I used are available permanently as single eyeshadows).

Here is how the look turned out:

RBR Blue Roan review

I would say Blue Roan looks much darker on the eyes (I might have used a lighter hand in the swatch as well), but the effect remains softer than black. I also find it easy to get a sharp wing with Blue Roan, though getting it between the upper lashes takes a little more patience.

Blue Roan is pretty stellar in terms of lasting power as well. It does smudge ever so slightly around my inner corners at the end of the day, but to be honest that is not uncommon for me. Sometimes it is because I didn’t get the primer onto those pesky corners, so I can’t blame it on the eyeliners.

Bottom line: Rouge Bunny Rouge Blue Roan Satin Eyeliner Nocturnal Ink is definitely a very nifty one! I like how easy it is to work with the tip, how fast it dries without producing that weird cooling/tightening sensation, as well as how well it lasts! The shade itself is a great selling point as well. It is dark enough to define the eyes, but it is softer than black. I don’t think I’ve seen many similar ones, either! All in all, recommended! I also hope Rouge Bunny Rouge will add more shades to the line-up. A delicious eggplant plum and a mossy/khaki green will be highly-appreciated!

Is Blue Roan something you might wear? Talking about Rouge Bunny Rouge, I have been jumping up and down for the two new eyeshadows they are launching soon. Again, if you have never tried anything from the brand, eyeshadows and powder blushes are the best place to start!

    Hi Sunny, Happy New Year! And yeah you are right, it does look a lot darker on the eyes than in the swatch. But I like that.

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

      Thanks, Melissa! I think I used a much lighter hand when I was swatching it. If you compare how it looks on my upper and lower lash lines, you see the difference too (because I dotted it across the lower lash line gently).

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    It’s pretty! I like it! Wish I used liquid liners more-I should, hey? That might be a new makeup goal for me this year!

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

      Hey Tracy, my go-to eyeliner is probably just a black gel eyeliner, but liquid ones are great to have for days on which I need something fast!

  • http://www.nailsandcupcakes.com/ Isabelle

    This looks very pretty! Almost black, but somewhat softer.

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

      Hey Isabelle, I like how it’s intense enough to define the eyes, but you do see hints of teal!

  • liyeun

    quite unique colour for a liquid liner like that! Too bad, malaysia does not carry this brand. Online shipping sometimes takes forever…..

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

      Hey Liyeun, I only have access to RBR online as well. I suppose shipping doesn’t take that long for me because they ship from Germany. I do think their stuff is worth the wait though!

  • Qtplace

    I would wear this color! I think this color is very beautiful and rouge bunny rouge is such a lovely brand! I have the foundation and it’s definitely in my top 3

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

      Hey girly, lucky you! I got sample pots of all the shades a while ago, but unfortunately I can’t find a match in there. My skin tone is tricky though. I need quite some yellow in my foundation, which you don’t see a lot in Western brands.

  • Icaria

    This is a nice color, love the hint of green on your eyes but I’m so bad at using this type of e/l, takes me at least 10 min to apply. :(

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

      Hey Helene, aww I’m sorry to hear that! I think everyone has a preferred type of applicator when it comes to liquid eyeliners though. This is the only type I can work with!

  • http://redhotjillypeppers.com/ Redhotjillypeppers

    That’s a lovely shade ! Very wearable and a change from the standard black or brown.

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

      Hey Jill, definitely! I love how it’s actually dark enough to define as well. I don’t stray from black often because a lot of alternative shades aren’t intense enough. This one actually is.

  • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com/ Catherine

    AHHH LOVE the color! Though to me it looks more teal than blue. When am I going to stop saying I need to try RBR and actually make a purchase!?

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

      Hey Catherine, I agree. It looks more like a teal to me as well! I hope you’ll take the plunge sometime soon. I can’t wait to lay my hands on their new eyeshadows!

  • http://eyeheartit.blogspot.com Larie

    I wonder what the ingredients are – I’m always looking for more liquid liners, especially colored ones! :D

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

      Hey Larie, I found the ingredient list on their site: AQUA, STYRENE/ACRYLATES/AMMONIUM METHACRYLATE COPOLYMER, METHYLPROPANEDIOL, POLOXAMER 407, PPG-70 TOCOPHERETH-100, COCO-GLUCOSIDE, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, SODIUM LAURETH-12 SULFATE, CITRIC ACID, AMMONIUM HYDROXIDE, SIMETHICONE, STEARETH-4, STEARETH-20, BHT, PHENOXYETHANOL, POTASSIUM SORBATE, SODIUM BENZOATE, IODOPROPYNYL BUTYLCARBAMATE, SORBIC ACID, +/-: CI 77510, CI 77491

      I know you can’t do parabens, and I’m glad to see none on the list!

      • http://eyeheartit.blogspot.com Larie

        Eep, thanks, Sunny, you’re so sweet! I didnt think to look – brands aren’t fantastic about posting ingredients lists; I’m impressed!

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

          You’re welcome, Larie! I agree. Rouge Bunny Rouge is one of those wonderful exceptions. The full ingredient list for every product is available on their website!

  • beautiesatwork

    a special kind of blue :) intriguing!

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

      Yup it’s a dark, dark teal when you apply enough pressure, and much lighter when you gently dot it along!

  • Lily

    Oh, love the colour and everything about it sounds good. I gotta try this once I run out of my Diorshow Art Pen.

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

      I think this one lasts better! I only use the Dior one sometimes to make the wing sharper, but otherwise it smudges on me after several hours so I don’t use it that often.

  • marciaf

    That is gorgeous. It’s on my list to buy the RBR liquid liners. I wouldn’t have considered this before your review though.

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

      Hey Marcia, you should give it a go! It’s actually a very interesting one!

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

    Stunning colour! True, it’s not as obvious once applied. It’d be amazing as a gel liner in pot to be doubled as shadow base.

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

      Hey Liz, oh yeah that’d be fun!

  • http://www.beautyfrontline.com/ Beauty Frontline

    Wow!! so gorgeous and lovely review :)

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

      Thanks! I’m glad you enjoyed it ;)

  • http://eyespaintedblack.com/ Natasja

    I’ve never heard of this brand, but this eyeliner sure does look good. I like how thin it is and your swatches look really good. Guess I am going to take a look at their eyeshadows now :P

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

      Hey Natasja, you should look into RBR! They make GREAT eyeshadows and blushes!

  • Jacqueline Ma

    I am definitely one who will try a navy blue eye liner especially felt tipped ones. Did you experience smudging with it?

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

      Hey Jacqueline, if I prime my eyes properly then no! Just remember to get your primer into the inner corners properly. I fail to do that sometimes and that’s when it would smudge lightly.

      • Jacqueline Ma

        Oh I missed out on ensuring that my primer also goes to the inner corners, perhaps thats why my liners smudge on me. Thanks Sunny. I’l be trying this tip out on Monday. :) Hugs.

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

          Hey Jacqueline, let me know how that works out! I discovered this only recently. Those inner corners are PESKY!

  • Keilexandra

    I’m in love with that color! Do you have any dupes (different types like pencil are fine) to suggest? Rouge Bunny Rouge is a bit difficult to find in the USA, since I’m loath to pay for high shipping or to buy $100 of new-to-me products at a time.

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

      Hey girly, the only other remotely similar liner I have is Chanel Bleu Exquis, which isn’t that similar at all! Have you checked out Beautybay? They offer free shipping on all orders!

      • Keilexandra

        Oh, I didn’t know about Beautybay! Thanks!

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

          You’re welcome! I don’t know if they deduct VAT for non-EU orders, but free shipping is always good!

  • http://thefantasia.com/ Stephanie | theFantasia.com

    This blue shade is so unique! It’s not as obvious once applied but it looks like a great alternative to a black eyeliner!

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

      Hey Stephanie, yup I agree! You can see it’s not a black though!
