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.

The shades that I have are: Encounter, Caribbean and Burnt Sand.
Encounter is a sheer purple with a blue micro shimmer. This shade would look pretty on green eyes.
Caribbean is my personal favourite and it is a sheer aqua blue with very delicate shimmer. I just love the wash of this shade all over the lid with some black eye liner and a lot of mascara.
Burnt Sand is a metallic gold, the most opaque out of three. It is a very festive shade and would look nice paired withRead More
Clarins recently launched a new range of eye shadows ( £16/$20) in 16 shades which are divided into four groups.
I actually did get three eye shadows to show you, so here they are. I have: 01 White Sparkle Illuminator, 03 Petal and 16 Vibrant Violet.
Although these are not the shades that I would choose for myself, I do like all three a lot.
01 White Sparkle is a silver glittery eye shadow which I personally use all over the lid with an eye liner and lots of mascara. It can be also used on top of other eye shadows. This is a great shade for Christmas actually.
03 Petal is a very beautiful satin baby pink that is a great all-over-the-lid shade, looks great paired with a dark shade in the outer corner. I think such shade would also look great on mature ladies.
16 Vibrant Violet is an iridescent violet with blue micro shimmer. It reminds me of the violet from this Clarins palette, so if you have missed it, you may want to pick up this eye shadow.

Do you know that Benefit’s Ceaseless Cream Eye Shadows have won a lot of awards? Some of them that are mentioned on their website:
- 2008 Self Healthy Beauty Award – “best eye shadow”
- 2008 Star Beauty Awards – “best eye shadow”
- 2008 Real Simple: Beauty & the Best – Top 20 beauty buys “best eye shadow”
And you know, I would give this product a lot of other awards because these are the best cream eye shadows ever.
So far I have only 2 shades but I will get them all. Why don’t I get them all at once? Because I get them as a small reward for myself. This is just my little secret on how to do some things that I don’t want to do. I get myself something nice after I’ve accomplished my task.
But back to the shadows. This time I am going to tell you about the shade called Stiletto, described as aubergine, which is just perfect for this Fall. My other shade Busy Signal is described as venetian brown and can be found here.
So why do I love it SO much and the swatchRead More
