Rouge Bunny Rouge Abyssinian Catbird: Swatches and Review

I will embark upon my Rouge Bunny Rouge eyeshadow swatches now.  This was my first set of shadows, and they come with a warning: once you try them, you will need more! 
Here are the boxes so you can see the artwork on the outside:
Much like the blush, the eyeshadow comes in a small, thin black plastic case. On the outside is some kind of strange flower or fairy, or something pretty.  
Inside is a cool toned greenish bronze color.  I am really not sure how to describe this color, other than awesome. It is so smooth and has just the right amount of shimmer to highlight the eye.
I don't have a similar color, but I swatched it next to some warm colors to give you a better idea of the undertone. Here she is next to the Naked palette:
Smog is a warm bronze, while Half Baked is very gold.
Overall, Abyssinian Catbird is one of the shining stars from Rouge Bunny Rouge. It is a unique color with an amazing formula.  I ordered mine from and have had a great experience with them so far!

Your swatch comparisons are fabulous Martha as I think they demonstrate very well that this is a khaki bronze but not a warm shade. I love RBR and I think Abyssinian Catbird is very special.

So pretty! I have yet to try any RBR although I've wanted to for the longest time. I think if I could have just one color from RBR this would be it! :)
