Rouge Bunny Rouge Large Shader Brush (003)



Rouge Bunny Rouge makeup brushes don't get the same amount of attention as the color products receive, and it's a shame, really, because these tools are top notch. Take, for example, Rouge Bunny Rouge Large Shader Brush (003): It has a thick medium size head of soft natural hair (pony, which picks and holds more product than soft squirrel hair usually does). The brush is large enough for an all-over lid application and has enough bounce and fluffiness to blend it nicely.




As you can see, Rouge Bunny Rouge Large Shader (003) is of similar proportions to the magnificent RMK's Eye Shadow brush L. It's not quite as thick, but close enough, and is not much different in performance, unless you're using ultra soft, sheer, and shimmery Japanese eye shadows. In that case go with the RMK brush for an even application and minimal fallout. Other brushes in this category, Sephora Pro #12 (formerly the Platinum Collection) and Sue Devitt Refined Eyebase brush (the medium size of the three eye brushes by Sue Devitt), are flatter and not quite as soft and luxurious.

Bottom Line: Excellent.

 Rouge Bunny Rouge Large Shader Brush #003 ($26) is available from Beautyhabit in the US and Zuneta if you're elsewhere in the world.

  1. I'm so pleased to hear that you like this brush too. It's one of my favourite eyeshadow brushes for its versatility. Of course, now you have me eyeing up that beautiful looking RMK...

  2. Any more RBR brushes in your collection besides this and the blush brush? I think I am _finally_ going to take the plunge and buy some RBR when my birthday rolls around.

    1. These are the only two I have. Just this week I considered more but couldn't justify it.

  3. Gaia- I wholeheartedly agree with you and Modesty Brown! When I bought this brush I assumed that it wouldn't come close to comparing with my Hakuhodo brushes, but I find that I reach for this brush every single day, and I really love it! I am now finding myself very tempted by the RBR Blusher Brush 002- particularly after reading your favorable review of it!

  4. Have you tried the RBR Mini Shader 005? I was trying to determine whether it is as fantastic as this brush, but it's hard to determine the size based upon the pictures on the RBR, Zuneta & Beautyhabit websites.

    1. No, I haven't. It looks great and I doubt you could go wrong with RBR, but I just don't need another eye brush (famous last words).

    2. I know what you mean. There is something about the 20% off at Beautyhabit that has me in a bit of a frenzy! I need another eye brush like a hole in the head- especially since my Hakuhodo expenditures have been somewhere in the neighborhood of the GNP of a small country since my frenzy to buy last year before the infamous price increase!
