Rouge Bunny Rouge Sweet Dust Seriema Long-Lasting Eye Shadow – Swatches, Pics, Review

I’m sure you all know I LOVE Rouge Bunny Rouge! I especially love their eyeshadows. Now I know considering I have hooded lids I should be wearing matte colours in my crease but I love dimensional, shimmering eyeshadows and I tend to break convention. I get wooed by the gorgeous colour descriptions of Rouge Bunny Rouge regular Long Lasting Eye Shadows and haven’t paid much attention to their matte collection. When they released the two new shades earlier this year I was finally tempted. I ordered Sweet Dust Seriema. As always Rouge Bunny Rouge’s colour description is bang on. Sweet Dust Seriema is described as semi-opaque cool dusty mauve taupe.

I think the easiest way to summarize my thoughts on this incredible eye shadow is to say that I now know that I must add every shade of When Birds Are Singing Long-Lasting Eye Shadow in the matte formula to my collection. I think this may be the best matte eye shadow formula I’ve ever used. Matte eye shadows are notoriously sketchy in formula. It is hard to find ones that don’t appear flat or chalky and that blend well. Sweet Dust Seriema is a dream to work with. Pigmented, smooth, creamy, effortless. PERFECTION!

    I agree that RBR’s matte are perfection. I’ve only Blackpepper Jay so far but am eyeing the others:)

    The color sounds similar to MAC Quarry–a favorite of mine. But I am veery interested in trying out the formula. To say that it’s the best matte eyeshadow formula you’ve ever tried is huge! I read about Rouge Bunny Rouge everywhere and have always been curious, but I think I just need to take the plunge and do it already! Thanks for the review!

    Good mates are so hard to find and this sounds perfect. The best mattes I’ve tried are Inglot, but someday I will try one of these!

    I’ve been thinking about this since it was introduced. I’m not big on matte either but if anyone can do it right, it’s RBR. The color looks great in your swatches.

    Excellent review, and I agree wholeheartedly that one needs all of the shades! I just need a couple more to complete my set. It doesn’t matter if we have to go hungry in the process!!!!!!! Marcia- I know you love your dimensional eye shadows with some sheen and sparkle, but you must try at least one of these– they are the most outstanding mattes in the history of humanity! 🙂 I’m salivating all over the 4 that I just picked up!

    The way the color lays down on your hand shows the excellent quality of the product. I love the evenness of tone, the degree of pigmentation, and obvs, the color!!

    PP, aren’t you glad? SDS is a total love.

    @Becca, it’s not much like Quarry at all. SDS is more grey and less muddy looking. I find Quarry to be more rose based.
