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..
Lethal Cosmetics Awakening collection is their latest release for Spring/Summer 2019. I have been a fan of the brand since my first order with them in 2018, and you can read my review of their shadows and more information on the brand in this article here. With the new release I bought another 14 shades and will present here Lethal Cosmetics Awakening eyeshadow swatches as well as comparisons with other shades in their lineup.
Did I need new lipsticks, probably not, but I have a weakness for Nabla Cosmetics. Nabla released 16 new lipsticks in The Matte Lip Collection, with 3 new finishes to replace some of their older Diva Crime lipsticks and add new shades. I was not a big fan of their old lipstick formula as two of the ones I tried (Kernel and Cosmic Dancer) felt like slug slime on the lips. The new formulas are nothing like the that thankfully. I decided to purchase one lipstick per finish, and luckily the shades I wanted were in a discounted bundle called Spicy Bundle, 4 lipsticks for the price of 3. Let’s take a look at the new Nabla Cult Matte lipsticks.
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.
The launch of the new Mulac Brave Collection on July 25th 2018 did not go down very well with very slow processing times and a lot of customers receiving broken palettes. I am one of them. I went off on a rant about what happened on my Youtube channel, but here I want to let the drama aside and just focus on the Mulac Brave Collection swatches and review.
Do you know the feeling when there is that one shade you think makes a palette totally worth it? Do you know that voice in your head saying “it’s only 20€, get it!”. Well that’s how I ended up buying the Zoeva Café palette: low price tag and a lime green shade. So since I bought it and used it, how about writing a review and showing you some swatches. I thought it was the perfect content to go up on the blog, separately from Youtube, so let’s get into the Zoeva Cafe palette review and swatches.
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.
We’re here for another palette review and dupes. After the ABH Subculture palette, it is time for my Jeffree Star Androgyny palette dupes and review. I tried to resist for a long time because I do not like the guy, the ridiculous amount of designer stuff he buys every day and especially his past. Nevertheless, I was won over by the perfect selection of shades in this palette. That is, until I used it.
A lot of drama has been going around the beauty scene and it is all about the new Anastasia Beverly Hill Subculture palette launch. This is definitely a polarizing palette with people loving it and others hating it to extremes. This brought on ridiculous reviews like “the worst palette evah”or “wtf this sucks”, which in my opinion are all just riding on a few bad first impressions by the first people trying it, and nobody actually tried to find out how this palette works best. That is how I approached this palette, tip toeing around it and getting to know it before feeling completely comfortable with it. So now that I’ve had it for two weeks, this is my Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette review.
