It's been quite some time since I've worn a green eyeshadow. In fact, I used to wear greens far more often than neutrals. And, greens just look fabulous on tanned complexions. Right now I'm hovering between NC25 to NC30.
I'm so glad I picked up Rouge Bunny Rouge's Long-Lasting Eyeshadow in Periwinkle Cardinal. It's definitely refreshing to have some color with my purchases. I have been a boring old fart lately, including my life. Some color is definitely needed in my life!
Periwinkle cardinal is hardly a daring choice; I would describe it to be a silvery sage green with iridescence. It's complementary with many of the eyeshadows you may have in your stash, especially with neutral tones.
The RBR eyeshadows individually contain 2.4g. I'm a little disappointed that Zuneta had charged me the price for the larger pans to my smaller Solstice Halcyon. I'm not a person to check prices and quantities, but the discrepancy wasn't quite fair, in my opinion.
Depending on the light, it has a slight blue-ish tinge.
In my stash, Majolica Majorca GR791 and Lancome Color Design in Filigree were the closest dupes. RBR Periwinkle Cardinal leans slightly more cool, with almost a grey or blue tone depending on the light. Shu Uemura's green is far more yellow-toned. Stila's is the truest sage green I have. The lancome green has a similar finish and shade, but the texture is not on par with the silky texture of RBR eyeshadows.
I completed the look today by pairing RBR Delicate Hummingbird on the crease, and RBR Solstice Halcyon slightly above RBR Periwinkle Cardinal, blending it slightly.
I do believe that this pairing is a match made in heaven! If you're not quite sure which first RBR eyeshadow to begin with, I would recommend you to pick Delicate Hummingbird and Periwinkle Cardinal!
I hope you're all having a wonderful Saturday. It just keeps on raining non-stop here in Copenhagen! I guess that only means doing laundry, cleaning the apartment, packing and finally leaving to Tokyo!
Oh I can't wait!!!!
I have my shopping list full of Japanese magazines, snacks, stationary and makeup, of course!!!
