Anyways, coming back to this one, it is my second purchase of this particular shade, so it must mean something, right? It is a satin finish and is described as a bright green with golden pearl. The description itself is a winner in my books. It is the perfect way to wear brights; never over the top and just the right amount of pop. Although, I have to say I first got this shade when I was 19, but my love for poppy, bright eyes hasn’t died one bit. It looks great with gel liners, if you want those gorgeous Egyptian inspired eyes. This particular shade fetches so many compliments for my brown eyes.
Overall thoughts: If you want to foray into those bright eyeshadows but feel overwhelmed, I would say go for this particular shade. It is easy to carry off and simply makes your eyes pop without much drama.
- Urban Decay Primer Potion.
- Tarina Tarantino Spaklicity Bronze Eyeshadow Palette.
- Shimmering bronze as an all over lid wash, shimmering brown in the crease to create an outer v, pearlized nude as a highlight.
- MAC Blacktrack fluidline on the upper lash line.
- MAC Smolder on the waterline.
- Too Faced Lash Injection Mascara.
