Rouge Bunny Rouge Witchery Modelling Mascara in Midnight

I’m always down for makeup magic. (Somebody pass girlfriend some eye of newt.)

Rouge Bunny Rouge Witchery Modelling Mascara ($29) leaves lashes so defined, separated and fanned out — even the tiniest little lashes at the corners — that I wouldn’t be surprised to find out they were made at Hogwarts.


That’s because magic is the idea behind Rouge Bunny Rouge Witchery Modelling Mascara and its new formula, which does not contain bat wings, frog toes, lizard legs, triethanolamine, silicone, fragrance or alcohol.

The creamy formula does, however, contain pure pigments, soft waxes keratin and conditioners to keep the mascara lightweight, flexible and easy to layer.

Seriously, pile that ish on! It does not clump.

I actually never tried the original Witchery formula, so I can’t compare this new version to that, but I can tell you how much I lurve it. 🙂

When it comes to getting those individual lashes separated and pinpoint defined, it’s bad@ss like a 20th-level wizard. The plastic brush works like a fine-toothed comb, drawing out even the littlest lashes from their secret hiding places.

Besides separating and darkening lashes (ooh, blacker than my cold, cold heart), Midnight also turns them into a ballerina — and by that I mean that it grants them excellent extension.

(Picture Ryan Gosling doing hot yoga.)

Wait, what?

I guess the most important question now is this: is Witchery perfect?

Is it the UFC-champion, gold-medal-winning tube of lash crack I’ve been looking for since, like, forever?

No, I wouldn’t say that. I don’t think it’s the world’s greatest mascara for lash curl or lift, or for increasing thickness at the base, although I do think it does some of that, but it’s a wizard when it comes to enchantingly dark, super separated lashes.

Witchery comes in two shades — Midnight, the deep black I’m wearing here on both my upper and lower lashes; and Golden Darkness, a dark auburn. They’re $29 each.

Rouge Bunny Rouge is sometimes still tough to find here in the U.S., but a few stores do carry the line, and they’re also available online at

Kind of excited about this…

“Woman, I know you are NOT about to take a class on kittens.”

Um…I just found out that the Marin Humane Society, which is located literally 3 minutes from my house, is holding a series of classes over the next few weeks.


Classes about cats.

I need your help. Should I go to Kittens 101 (“This workshop can help your feline dreams come true!”), How Do I Train My Cat Too…? (“We’ll teach you how to communicate with your cat and provide mental stimulation for them.”) or Cats 101 (“Learn practical tips for building a positive relationship with your resident feline.”)?

They all sound great. 🙂

    The clear answer is to go to ALL of the cat classes!

    Rouge Bunny Rouge makes me want to buy things just because of the bunnies. (As I type, Quincy is licking my feet, he’s weird) The brush on this mascara looks lovely, and your lashes do too!

  2. i love the name of it.. “bunny” bunny.. <3

    Uh, they’re joking with that whole “How Do I Train My Cat To….” thing, right? Cats do what they want, when they want!

  5. Agata says:

    I think you should go to all the classes!

    On a side note, that lip color looks super pretty and now I kinda want it!

  6. My puny lashes unfortunately would need more help than this mascara could offer! However, I’ve heard so much about the Rouge Bunny Rouge line. I really wish it was more accessible in the US!

    this. looks. BALLER. holy crap. I’m going to run (not walk) to the Plaza Hotel to get my paws on this stuff as soon as I’m free from work!!

    As far as the cat classes go, Karen – I think you should go with “How Do I Train My Cat To..?” to get the DL on steering “the management” in the direction you want them to go. 😉

  10. Kim says:

    I think you should hit ALL the classes, though you’re probably more than qualified to teach them. Here’s the Cliffs Notes version of the kitten class: They’re bitey, scratchy and crazy. But cute. 🙂
