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.
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’m not sure what it is about the brand but whenever Violet Voss comes out with a palette I need it.
I managed to hold off on the Flamingo Palette until a couple of months ago when it was on sale through Boxycharm (Violet Voss’s shipping is OUTRAGEOUS). Even then it took me this long to use the palette.
I’ve become a lot more comfortable with color over this last year so I was eager to use Beach Ball.
I started with Lemonade, added Beach Ball then tried to darken with Sandals because I wasn’t feeling confident enough to pull off the green.
I immediately regretted adding Sandals but I kept going and added Tidal Wave, over NYX glitter primer. Once Tidal Wave was down I darkened the outer third with Beach Ball again and loved the result.
I have to remind myself to trust the process and I’m so glad I stuck with this look!
How do you feel about using color in your look, makeup or clothes?
