Steffi from Smoke & Diamonds started a blog series called 7 shades of… where bloggers present 7 shades of one colour in one category, e.g. eyeshadow, lipstick, nail polish and so on. Until the 8th May you still have time to participate in the current round where it is all about the colour green. You can share your posts via InLinkz on her blog. Previously there was a 7 Shades of… post and one on 7 Shades of… Orange.
(1) Catrice – Velvet Matt Eyeshadow in 060 Moss Wanted Colour
I have recently reviewed this eyeshadow as I really am impressed with its texture. It feels incredibly smooth and has a great colour payoff. Great allrounder that works really well as the focus of a makeup.
(2) Sugarpill – Pressed Eyeshadow in Acidberry
I never thought I would like this colour as much as I do, but it is a beautiful bright green shade that works well on its own or as a pop of colour. Amazing colour payoff and a really unusual colour that will be hard to find in the drugstore.
(3) Concrete Minerals – Mineral Eyeshadow in Living Dead
A colour that reminds me of a really nice lawn in summer and I feel this colour is very unique. I do love the Concrete Minerals eyeshadows and I reviewed them previously here on the blog. I find they last very well on me during the day.
(4) Lily Lolo – Mineral Eyeshadow in Cosmopolitan
Although Lily Lolo eyeshadows are not my favourites in general, I really do like this matte green olive shade. Really good colour pay off and you can never go wrong with a good matte eyeshadow.
(5) P2 – Metal Eyes Eyeshadow in 020 Taupe Elephant
Unfortunately, this shade is not available anymore. I have a couple of the P2 Metal Eyes Eyeshadows and really like them. I believe they were replaced by the Metal Black Eyeshadows recently. Great colour for the corner of the eye or under the eye to make a green makeup pop.
(6) Catrice – Absolute Eye Colour Mono in 410 C’mon Chameleon!
Often compared with Mac’s Club, this eyeshadow indeed is a chameleon and changes from green to brown. These changes of colour work a lot better on a black base.
(7) MNY Maybelline – My Shadow Eyeshadow
This is a pretty old eyeshadow that is not available anymore. The MNY line was very affordable and I have a couple of shades that I really like. I usually use it in the crease of my eyes together with some lighter green eyeshadows.
