I've already shared some comparison swatches of Rouge Bunny Rouge Caress of Mink but I still wanted to devote a post to talking about this new glitter pigment. Glitter pigment sounds a little scary and glitter generally is not normally my cup of tea but this is glitter Rouge Bunny Rouge style. It looks twinkly rather than a full on sparkle-fest.
This is my second RBR loose glitter pigment, I also own Wishing for Wings. I really like how these are packaged. I'm normally wary of loose pigments as they can be very messy but I find using the sponge tip as an applicator avoids any fall-out. I had intended to have a go at mixing the pigment with some of the Seas of Illumination highlighter as they do in the Beyond the Looking Glass look video but I confess I have been too chicken to tap the product out! I'll have to get my mixing palette out at some point though as I'm intrigued to see how this changes the finish. I have wondered if Caress of Mink would look similar to the taupe colour in my YSL Chromatics #3 quad when applied wet.
Caress of Mink is a medium taupe brown. The sparkle is iridescent and I really like the flashes of green in certain lights. I don't think the glitter looks over the top when applied and in most lights you see a sheen rather than obvious glitter. My apologies for the size of the pictures below. I had a bit of a camera malfunction. Hopefully it will still give you an idea of how it looks applied. Here I have applied over a base of RBR Atlas Swallowtail and lined with RBR Long-lasting pencil in Lola.
I spotted that Rouge Bunny Rouge are running a competition on Facebook to win both of the new shades of glitter pigment. To enter you need to go to their Facebook page and click on the Win! Win! Win! tab. Something else I want to share with you is Visionary Beauty's lovely review of Caress of Mink and Embrace of Cashmere. Replica owns six of the seven pigments and in her review she shares swatches of her complete collection. In fact, if you're ever undecided on a Rouge Bunny Rouge product I would recommend searching Replica's archives for her side by side swatches of their lipsticks, eyeshadows etc. Her swatches have helped me with many shopping dilemmas!
I bought Caress of Mink pigment from Zuneta.
