Spring is in the air, and Rouge Bunny Rouge is celebrating with new spring releases for skin, eyes and lips. The Spring Look, Euphony of Lace presents a sophisticated yet no-fuss makeup that is perfect for day to night wear featuring the brand’s Foundation Essence which is a foundation pigment (review coming soon), Shimmering Luxe Balm, a tinted lip treatment, and the star of the show, the brand’s latest eye shadow palette, Antigo, which has a mix of four truly neutral shadows in a formula that is silky smooth. Today let’s take a look at the eyshadow quartet.
The Antigo Colour Quartet features four eye shadows pressed into one pan featuring a modern geometric design which is a fresh take for the brand. The palette was designed to combine four natural neutral shadows to flatter any skin tone: sandy beige, earthy taupes and a powdery chocolate brown which can easily create a fresh dimensional eye look just with this palette. Before swatching the lightest shade in the palette I expected a powdery/chalky highlight shade, but I was pleasantly surprised. Definitely more pigmented than I expected, with a subtle satin sheen, this shade blends out easily as a brow highlight or can easily brighten up the center of the lid (even if you’re placing it on top of other dark shadows!). The two mid-tone shades directly across from one another appear to lean slightly warm and slightly cool but once on the lids they really do appear neutral which would work beautifully on many skintones. The deepest shade of brown is a soft chocolate brown that was surprisingly pigmented as well.
The consistency of the shadows in Antigo as described by RBR – silky soft, highly pigmented yet easy to blend and the description of almost “melting” into the skin is very accurate. The shadow is enriched with natural argan oil which keeps the texture smooth and lightweight, not powdery or dry. When looking at the pan I expected the shadows to be matte and it was not until I started using them on the eyes that I was able to feel how they blended with each other in application and see the hint of natural sheen. Because of the thin consistency and near-satin finish the shadows do not make the lids appear dry or cracked and thus I felt the shadows worked beautifully and did not accentuate my wrinkles. The silky texture and shadows’ ability to almost melt into the skin results in a very natural and almost “undone” makeup look.
The shadows in this palette perform unlike typical eye shadows as well. The shadows pick up easily with natural or synthetic fiber brishes and although there is some product that kicks up in the pan, I did not get any fallout even with the deepest shade. I have oily lids so I used the product both on top of a light amount of primer and the shadows lasted all day. I more recently tried them simply on top of a face powder and I actually preferred how they blended more with less of a “sticky” base that some eye primers are prone to. It lasted the few hours I tried it, but I have yet to test it out all day (let me know if you are curious in the comments below!).
Next up I wanted to share a quick make up look I put together using in the eye shadow quad, a spring-perfect blush from the brand, as well as one of my favorite RBR Glassy Gloss. This is a very neutral, natural make up look that is perfect for every day.
In lieu of a black liner, I used the darkest shade in the quad on a wet liner brush to give soft definition to the eye which gives it a light and fresh spring feel.

Overall I am impressed with the quality and shade selection for the eye shadow quartette, Antigo. The formula is soft and silky, and unique when comparing to other eye shadows I experience. I love the natural look it gives the eyes and I can see myself using this for daytime makeup as well as a minimal eye base with a long flick of liner and bold lipstick for evening.
