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
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.
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 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.
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.
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!
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..
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.
Well by now we all know that I didn’t resist and bought the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Vault collection at launch. Of course I had to compare the dupes I found when trying to convince myself I didn’t need the palettes, with the actual palettes. So here are my Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Vault dupes in retrospect.
I got many questions on the Makeup Geek damaged eyeshadow, and since I just made a few orders, let’s talk about them. Makeup Geek has been periodically releasing damaged stock on their website at a heavy discount, usually 50% off. I have been purchasing from these sales since the beginning because I have only had the best experience. The latest damaged sale was at the beginning of July and I got my hands on lots of shades I was missing in my Makeup Geek collection.
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.
Let the makeup declutter continue! This is the fifth episode of the decluttering series and I’m going over my eyeshadow palettes and singles. Can you predict how this went? Don’t forget to check out the other episodes of my 2017 decluttering adventure here.
Just a few days ago the beauty community got taken aback by the surprise sneak peek of the new Urban Decay Naked Heat palette, the fifth in the Naked palette family, characterized by gorgeous and very trendy warm toned shades. I was totally prey of this surprise sneak peek and the moment I saw the promotional image, I wanted it right away. Warm colors are my jam, just take a look at my Instagram feed. Reviews and swatches started coming out by bloggers and youtubers I trust and I started being less enthusiastic about this new Naked Heat palette, so here is a product-specific antihaul, as well my Urban Decay Naked Heat dupes.
Single pan pressed eyeshadows are my weakness, I collect them, I love them. Now that I’ve said that, you won’t be surprised that I’m coming to you with a review and swatches of the new Colourpop pressed shadows. Colourpop launched over 30 new pressed eyeshadows in January promoting it as their biggest launch yet. I picked up quite a few in the meantime and have been using them non stop, so here I thought it was about time to talk to you about them.
Woohoo we made it to the third and last post on the Makeup Geek lipsticks. If you missed them, part 1 on the Makeup Geek Iconic lipsticks is here, and part 2 on the Plush Cremes is here. This time we’re talking of their matte liquid lipsticks: take a look at these Makeup Geek Plush Matte swatches.
