Rouge Bunny Rouge, Blackpepper Jay,Chestnut-napped Apali,Grey Go-away Lourie

Here are some close up pics of 3 of the new RBR matte shades and swatches, I will do an EOTD at some point soon. Blackpepper Jay ( middle swatch) is a deep blackened brown, great as a smokey crease shade or to line.
Chestnut-napped Apali (right swatch) , is a slightly browned beige neutral, works great as a lid shade or a natural crease shade.
Grey Go-away Lourie, (left swatch) is a medium slate gray (the close up pic below shows it as lighter than true life) I really like this on the lid, its a bit darker than I would normally use there but it pairs beautifully with Blackpepper Jay in the crease. It also looks really nice in the crease, with neutrals or silvers,pinkish shades on the lid.

As I briefly mentioned these have perfect pigmentation and they go on exactly how they look in the pan. As with all my other RBR they last well throughout the day and I am happy to say that even though these are matte they blend faultlessly. So my costly obsession with RBR ploughs on. stock RBR exclusively ( they have also started selling Hourglass, which I am sure to submit to soon)


  1. These look like they give an amazing payoff - I really love plackpepper Jay, anf grey go-away Laurie. thanks so much for showing us these!

  2. I agree with Mizzworthy, Blackpepper Jay is really nice, hope u really do show us an EOTD! I'll show my little RBR haul when it gets here...I got a couple of eyeshadows, a gloss, a lipstick and a blush, like you said, had to take advantage of the 20% off! Hope they do something similar for Hourglass ;-)! xx

  3. I really like all of those especially Blackpepper Jay, thanks for the swatches.

  4. Swatches are amazing,it looks like there are really pigmented especially because they are matte.
    Thanks for sharing.


  5. Hello Mizzworthy,
    I am very impressed with these, I'll try and post my EOTD soon showing what they look like applied.

    Hello Anna,
    Will look forward to your haul report ! I went and order a few things from Hourglass, I obviously have no will power :)

    Hi Pinksparkle84,
    Thanks for your comment,blackpepper Jay is very versatile for a dark shade

    Hello MyHumblereviews,
    It is hard finding good matte shades but these are all winners.Happy to share x

  6. They all look so useful. I don't think I could pick just one. A good matte is so hard to get right - BB does it with the texture, but a lot of her shades pull orange on me.

  7. Hi Grace,

    I find the same thing with BB, I bought loads of shades when we got a counter here and most of them went warm on me !
