I would like to start off by tipping my hats off to Colourpop for naming this beautiful green shadow after a popular house plant. I don’t know if that’s true but I’d like to think it is, haha.
This is a gorgeous dark olive green with green-gold glitter. The formula is ultra-glitter.
I love this green/gold color. It did take a few layers to build up to an even application but I think it could be worn on its own. I think this would benefit from being used over a glitter glue but as it is, I found it a little difficult to remove using only a makeup wipe.
As of December, 2022 it is not available outside the Feels Like Magic SSS vault.
Here’s a quick look using Colourpop super shock shadow Pug Life.
I had to build up the color with a couple of layers but I didn’t used a base or glitter primer.
I used Nomad Cosmetics Fêtes de Provence for the mattes in the look
Side note: I’m not sure what it is about these Nomad palettes but I’ve found them the easiest to use when it comes to pastel and cool toned colors. They’re so pigmented and easy to blend without fading away. I don’t know if it’s the formula or my comfort level but I would highly recommend them!
As I go through all my makeup, I’d like to have somewhere to reference color swatches and quick eyeshadow ideas. I figured uploading them here is as good a place as any :).
I used Snap Dragon for the base, definitivamente had to revive this one with some Duraline
I know the proper way of reviving these is to break them up and repress them using Duraline but ain’t nobody got time for that, so I just add a drop on top and get the pigment. I’d also like to add that the SSS already have a nice staying power but with Duraline they tend to be a little harder to remove.
Obvi is an ultra-glitter that doesn’t have a lot of pigment, so I used it over Snap Dragon
I finished it off using Maybelline Lasting Drama Matte eyeliner in 910 Jade Olive. I’m impressed at how smooth and pigmented this eyeliner showed up despite not being used in a while
I have a large collection of Colourpop palettes and singles that I’ve put in an X-Large palette that I like to bring out every now and then to try new color combos.
For this look I used the following shadows
These are all from the Getting Fresh palette. I like swatching the shadows I use individually in case someone wants to use the same, or similar, colors but don’t have Colourpop shadows. I love the formula of CP’s shadows and these have great pigment and blend nicely.
George Michael (puppy) saw me put on makeup and was instantly excited thinking we were going out, lol.
I’m definitely feeling rusty when it comes to blogging but I continue to try to be consistent with it.
I hope this look inspires your own and if it does I’d love to see it! IG handle is asquard :).
Here’s a quick makeup look using mostly Colourpop products.
Some of the products are no longer available so I figured I’d provide swatches in case anyone wanted to recreate the look or use similar colors!
At Forest Sight eyeshadow palette ALT lippie pencil (as liner) Best Intention Lippie Stix Flynn lux liquid lipstick Tick blush Main Attraction highlighter
I appreciate that I’m able to use the lippie pencils as eyeliners because I would never use green as a lip color lol.
I love the blushes and highlighters and wish they were still available. I feel like I’ve used these products so much, and the highlighter is on my pan project, but I haven’t hit pan yet and barely made a dent!
I wish Colourpop had a bronzer I could use but I’ve found their bronzer to be too light, too orange or too stiff and hard to blend.
