Catching up on blog content these days an I want to share my green eyeshadow singles collection. In March I went a full month making all green content and you can see the videos on my Youtube channel, in this Green Monochrome Makeup playlist.

Green eyeshadow swatches

Green eyeshadow swatches: Nabla Citron, Makeup Geek Jester, Coloured Rain Side of Olives, Nabla Extravirgin, Makeup Geek Take Two, Makeup Geek Venom

This first group feature superstars and shadows I use constantly. These comparison swatches show you nicely some differences between Makeup Geek eyeshadows, Nabla green eyeshadows and Coloured Raine Side of Olives. I love them and would recommend them all.

Duochrome green eyeshadow swatches: Colourpop Tea Garden, Makeup Geek Typhoon, Colourpop Sideline, Makeup Geek Leafing So Soon, Colourpop Up and Up, Makeup Geek Fantasy

In this second set of eyeshadows I grouped the duochrome green eyeshadow I own. Colourpop Tea Garden and Makeup Geek Fantasy are my favorites from these, mainly due to the highly reflective finish (heart eyes).

Neon, lime and chartreuse eyeshadow swatches: Colourpop Rosé All Day, Colourpop Dejaboo, Makeup Geek Limelight, Makeup Geek Fuji, Lethal Cosmetics Vertex, Inglot 288

Neon makeup is all the rage this summer and these are eyeshadows that were on the market before the trend hit. My favorites are Makeup Geek Limelight and the Lethal Cosmetics Vertex (check out my review here). Inglot #288 is a great colourful matte green that works great! Colourpop Dejaboo and Makeup Geek Fuji aren’t very pigmented so I would skip them both.

Green eyeshadow swatches: Inglot 412, Devinah Cosmetics Viridian, Inglot 331, Inglot 333, MAC Humid

From this lot I can wholeheartedly recommend the two Inglot matte green eyeshadows. They are really close in shade so you can probably do with only one. Mine was a mistake when ordering online unfortunately. MAC Humid has almost no pigmentation and a satin finish so feel free to skip it.

Medium matte green eyeshadow swatches: Lethal Cosmetics Recluse, Lethal Cosmetics Habitat, Inglot 56, Makeup Geek Dirty Martini, Hean 812, Nabla Radika, Colourpop Team Captain

These medium matte green eyeshadows are crucial for crease blending. The one sore spot is that Inglot #56 eyeshadow which sucks big time and I should really toss. All the others may not swatch wonderfully but they work great on the eye!

Dark green eyeshadow swatches: Devinah Cosmetics Envy, Makeup Geek Epic, Colourpop Conjour UP, Makeup Geek Envy, Makeup Geek Enchanted Forest, WeMakeup 310

After crease shades, here are the darker green shadows. Makeup Geek Epic and Enchanted Forest are two staples in my collection: a beautiful shimmery forest green and a very deep green for the outer corner. I spoke in depth about the WeMakeup eyeshadows here, n. 310 is gorgeous. Colourpop Conjour Up leans a bit cooler and the other two you can probably skip, I don’t think I’ve ever used them in the 2+ years I own them.

So here’s all my green eyeshadow singles collection with all the green eyeshadow swatches! This is updated to March 2019 and of course I will have more green shadows in my future, because who am I kidding, I love green and I collect single eyeshadows like they were Pokemon..

Nabla Matte Collection swatches, comparisons

nabla matte collection review swatches

Are you surprised that I couldn’t resist an all-matte single shadow collection? Somehow I’m not ghghg. When Nabla announced that they were coming out with a new collection of eyeshadow refills and they were all matte, I got butterflies in my stomach and giggled in a silly way. I am an eyeshadow refill collector and matte eyeshadows are my passion since I have hooded eyes. So of course I snagged up the full Nabla Matte Collection off of nablacosmetics.com and here are my review and swatches.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina palette dupes

ABH-NORVINA-PALETTE-DUPES-VIDEO


Ah, new palette releases are the toughest times for me (my wallet actually). When Norvina announced the launch of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina palette, my heart skipped a beat, my palms got sweaty, all the symptoms. I own all the current permanent palettes by Anastasia Beverly Hills: Modern Renaissance, Subculture, Prism, Soft Glam, so naturally I wanted to pick up the Norvina palette to complete my collection. Then I went to instagram stories to ask you guys, and my brilliant friend CynthiaIsKillikill took the ham off my eyes (it’s an Italian saying, everything looks better through prosciutto). So I dove into my eyeshadow collection looking for shades that would be Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina palette dupes and went off to wear purple eyeshadow for a few days. It was a process, it was a revelation, read on for what came out.

Nabla Goldust collection review and swatches

nabla goldust collection swatch review


I haven’t been this excited by a makeup collection in a while. The new Nabla Goldust collection has made my heart beat a bit faster since the press release at the end of November. A collection inspired by the Golden Age, or Belle Epoque, those years of art, music and parties just before the First World War. Think of Paris at night, reflections of gold and copper, flowing chiffon dresses and the art of Klimt. Well all of this excites me a lot when combined with new formulations of eyeshadows and a new finish for lipsticks. After stalking this collection on the blogosphere thanks to the work of colleague bloggers (Marta from Caffelatte for Breakfast, Elsa from Like a Candyshop, Stefania from Nude Powder, Chia of La Vie en Cosmetique, just to name a few), I decided to pick up a selection of products that I knew I would get a lot of use from and would give me an idea of the novelties introduced with the Nabla Goldust collection.

After spending some time playing with the products and off the record, I think I can safely report here my opinions and experiences on the Nabla Goldust collection.

Nabla Goldust Collection look 3 – Klimt gold

nabla goldust collection look 3 klimt


We are talking Nabla Cosmetics Goldust collection again on this blog (see look 1 and look 2). This third look using the new holiday collection was a bit less spontaneous and more out of my comfort zone. The focus of the look is meant to be the gorgeous Nabla Dazzleliner Klimt, the only limited edition piece of the Goldust collection. This is such a unique gold liner with a very strong red undertone like I have never seen before. I understand when a lot of people tell me they don’t know whether they would ever use it, but to me it inspires richness and lines like nothing else. Can you tell I’m in love with this collection?

Nabla Goldust collection look 2 – Radikal Noir

nabla goldust look 2 radikal


I don’t know what it is, but I have been feeling unusually inspired these days, both with my makeup and photos, and I think it is all because of the new Nabla Goldust collection. I mean, I even styled my hair for this look! I have been testing the collection out to write a review for you guys and posting some looks and first impressions on the go. You can read the first one here. Let’s get into Nabla Goldust collection look 2.

The second look in exploration of the new Nabla Cosmetics Goldust collection is dedicated to the eyeshadow Radikal. This super-matte army green seemed like the perfect companion to the other earthy shadows in the collection (as I tried to do here), but I wanted to show case it with its own shimmery brother Extravirgin and the connecting line of the collection, the gold eyeliner.
