As promised, I pulled out some eye shadows from various popular brands to show comparisons to the two new Rouge Bunny Rouge eye shadows: Rain Dove and Rufous-Tailed Weaver. I started doing this over the weekend and quickly realized that I could spend a full day rummaging through various gorgeous neutral colors in my collection and swatching, but what's the point? There are endless variations on these colors, none are identical. Instead, these swatches should give you an idea of what the new Rouge Bunny Rouge eye shadows look like, and a ballpark for comparison.
Above are swatches of Rain dove and Rufous-Tailed Weaver next to two other Rouge Bunny Rouge colors: Abyssinian Catbird (darker and slightly more olive than RTW), and Unforgettable Oriole (warmer and slightly more brown than RD).
Laura Mercier Sable is significantly cooler and more gray:
Edward Bess offers several neutral colors in the same family. I chose to show you Storm (discontinued) which has a distinct lavender undertone, Mystery (more brown), and Dusk (a complex gray-olive-taupe, cooler and darker than RTW).
Le Metier de Beaute Jojo is warmer and more beige than Rain Dove. Wisdom by Kjaer-Weis is straight up taupe:
In the last group we have NARS Ashes to Ashes, which is , and Chanel Hasard. I probably should have chosen another Chanel eye shadow because I tried to keep the swatches in a relatively similar finish (satin/fine shimmer), while Hasard is matte(ish). But it gives a good idea of the texture and pigment of the eye shadows next to it, so I hope it's still somewhat helpful.
