I was most fortunate to receive the Fire Drops Loose Glitter Pigment in Embrace of Cashmere to try recently. I was tremendously excited about this as I am a big fan of Rouge Bunny Rouge products but not entirely enamoured with loose powdery things or glitter (I prefer a more delicate shimmer).
I have equated loose pigments with mess in my mind. I have had awful accidents with MAC and Barry M products and have been avoiding such things ever since. RBR however has take an impressive and practical approach to their already beautiful packaging.
There is a clever little stopper at the mouth of the vial that’s prevent spillage and helps to release the right amount of pigment onto the sponge applicator. The applicator works well for me and allows for neat mess-free usage of the product. However, I suspect that a few of my friends that are known for their more flamboyant use of eyeshadow might exclaim that not enough pigment is released onto the sponge applicator each time.
I would like to correct the RBR mind that hailed this a glitter item for it is more of a pearly shimmer than a chunky glitter product on me at least. I like the super fine weightless powder to silk formula and I really appreciate the fact that it does not dry out my lids like many shadows tend to at this time of year.
Embrace of Cashmere is a wonderful gleaming complex neutral golden champagne colour appropriate for use as a highlighter or solo as a shadow. I am so pleased with the shade and envisage myself using this plenty much over all seasons. I honestly think that this pigment is a cut above anything similar that I have tried before in terms of it’s fine quality, texture and finish.
