Hi,

I am looking for a really deep green/gold eye shadow, I would love to find one that is more of an emerald green rather than a muddy green, if you know what I mean! :rollthoseeyes:

I was hopeful that the 004 (I think) Rimmel 8hr mousse was a deep green but it looks pretty pale on the Rimmel website.

I am looking to use it more as an occasional liner or for along the crease line for depth.

Oh of course it must not need a mortgage to buy!!

Looking forward to the responses!

Gilly,
I think Luisa might have mentioned that the Rimell Green she spoke of was very greeny gold. Remember that colour swatches are not always a true indicator.


#3

Yeah, I would go to Priceline and check it out IRL.


#4

I went to my local Priceline and they did not even have the 8hr shadow!
Tried KMart and they had 002 and that was it!

Gilly for a really intense green, try M.A.C Swimming; M.A.C Humid is also gorgeous, a bit deeper with a gold shimmer. You can see the swatches here:

It is infact a soft green gold Gilly. It looks like a blue teal on the lid and in the container but is a soft pale green with gold undertones. Not a good choice for adding depth, just a wash of colour.

The new Revlon Ltd Ed eyeshadows feature one with a green and gold.

I was going to suggest the new Revlon. Also, I have a gorgeous green/gold/bronze eyeshadow from Australis (yeah I know, but…), it’s lovely!

Bloom e/s in Olive is greeny-gold, although more towards khaki green than emerald green.


#11

I have this one Kate. More of a khaki as you say, but a fanastic colour.


#12

Yes Gilly i have the bloom olive shadow it came in a trio with whisper and taupe, most versitile long wearing colours ive purcashed! It is more of a khakish colour with gold/shimmer tones.

I’m not sure how an olive/khaki would look on my eyes, I don’t want it to look like a muddy colour or like an old bruise!! :chuckle:


#14

It’d look gorgeous - really make your eyes ‘pop’.


#15

Just had a look on here and it shows the “must have” trio, is that the right one?


#16

This one? http://www.adorebeauty.com.au/adorebeauty/viewitem.asp?idproduct=10929

I believe it is.

Is that a picture of the actual item? they look browny not green!


#18

No, it’s greeny/goldy/khaki. Promise!

It’s really very pretty. But as the others said, it’s more a khaki green, and throws some gold shimmer. On your eyes it’d look gorgeous.


#19

I saw Humid today, very nice!

MAC have a gorgeous green/gold pigment called “Golden Olive”. Pigments are great as the jar will seriously last you all year long! If you’re one of those people who don’t like pigments (cos they can be messy) then the MAC eye shaow in “Swimming” is also really cool. Links to both below.
