Best Eye Shadows for Green Eyes and Emerald Green Contact Lenses

I think I have already told you several times that I am curious about how I’d look like with green eyes. In fact,  my father and pretty much everyone in his family, including my cousins, have  green eyes and blonde hair.

Luckily, these days it is easy to try both (new hair colour and even eye colour)…I actually did dye my hair blonde when I was 16, hello teen years! But have realized that I have never tried “changing” my eye colour. And I am talking about colour lenses here…

I am pretty sure that you know that the colour of the moment is Emerald Green, as  reported by Pantone. Looks  like it’s the perfect timing for trying the green lenses. For example the Acuvue 2 Colours by Johnson & Johnson which are available in a  lot of colours, including Emerald Green.

One of the coolest thing about trying on the contact lenses is the fact that you can play with different makeup shades! Although, it is “just makeup” and you can use whichever  colours you want, certain shades can  make your eyes pop, so it’s worth knowing which ones.

When you look at the colour wheel,

Daniel Sandler Polychromatic Eyeshadow in Lava. Review, Swatches and Face Of The Day. Rave

I am in love with Daniel Sandler’s  new makeup collection for AW 2012 called Escape to Hollywood. I think this is my favourite one so far! I love all Daniel’s products, but some of them adore…

Like this Polychromatic Eyeshadow  in  Lava (£10.25).

Here are all the products from the new collection but I want to tell you about Lava  in details today, as, believe it or not, this is the most exciting makeup product of the month for me!

The texture and the pigmentation are fantastic!  Everything you want an eye shadow to be, it ticks all the boxes for me: easy to apply and blend, soft buttery texture and great staying power. However, the most exciting part is the colour!

It is very unique and complex – a  mix of dark chocolate and red, at least this is how I would describe it, satin finish. I have been wearing this eye shadow every single day since I have got it (thanks, Daniel) and have bit a bit obsessed.

Here is a comparison of it and some other eye shadows:

L’Oreal La Couleur Infallible Eye Shadows in 026 Golden Mahogany. Review and Swatches

Remember my post about L’Oreal Color Infaillible Eye Shadows in All Night Blue?

I liked them so much that I wanted to buy more shades and when I was looking for swatches on-line I came across this post (definitely take a look!) and knew that I had to get 026 Golden Mahogany.

But L’Oreal has a strange system, I mean they have different shades for different countries and sometimes the names of the shades are different, too. Unfortunately,  I couldn’t find Golden Mahogany at my local L’Oreal counters.

I tweeted my disappointment the other day and… I was shocked but lovely Marija (who has a blog) got it for me as a Christmas present. That was such an amazing surprise, thank you Marija, you definitely made my day.

I won’t repeat myself, so if you want to know my thoughts about the quality of these eye shadows take a look here. But I want to tell you about the colour.

Based on the swatch that I saw I was expecting a true red shade but what did I get instead? Let’s take a look at the swatch, shall we?
