Dude! What was I thinking?

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 7 - 2010

I bought a green eyeshadow.  Not just any green eyeshadow, an expensive green eyeshadow.  Not just any expensive green eyeshadow, but a pale green expensive eyeshadow.  With frost.

I tried it on.  It made my eyelids glow.  Glow like they were from 1982.

Sigh.

Have you made any compulsive and slightly ridiculous purchases lately?

    I have a Chanel Seafoam Green eyeliner that would look awesome with that eyeshadow.
    I think it’s a pretty color, it’s workable, but you might want something darker in the crease, and just use this color as a lid shade.

    That’s what I think anyhow. 🙂

    aww maybe you could sell it on your blog? 🙂

    I bought a blush. It was cheap, and a pretty peachy-pink color. I love the color and the texture.

    However, I have 239487945 blushes of the same color already.

    What was I thinking????

  4. Oh I love it! So much that I want to go out and buy it. I think Harvey Nichols is the only place that does it around here…maybe I should take a trip! Probably a bit expensive for my current budget but hey, I can drool 😉
    I’ll look out for it if you do a blogsale!

    *sigh* too many mistakes to mention, mostly mattifying primers which make my nose look like a strawberry, y’know that seedy bigh-pored-huge-blackhead look….nice!

  6. Dude, you have no idea how many crazy eyeshadows purchase I’ve done! haha!
    Anyway, I think you might make this one work as an inner corner highlight with soft browns on the rest of the eyes – like on this look I just saw: http://l1lmamaj.blogspot.com/2010/08/fotd-aqua-eyeshadow.html

    Hope this helps 🙂

    Is it wrong then that I wear green eyeshadow every day? It’s been my favourite shade since college. *Reconsiders entire life*

  8. Don’t worry, it’s fixable! Try combining it with a plum color in the crease a la NARS Habanera. I just did a FOTD with Habanera yesterday and I think it looked nice! Our coloring is vaguely similar (pale with dark hair), so maybe it’ll work for you?

    haha I have so many eyeshadows which i’m never going to wear, most of them were bought when I was younger because they were nice colours, I never actually though about what they’d look like on my eyes!

  10. It might be lovely just as a pop of color like liner?

  11. Khadija says:

    You could use it as part of a green smoky eye?

  12. Sirvinya says:

    Ooooh, that’s pretty!! Which one is it? I need to buy one 🙂

  13. ashley says:

    awww, I think it’s pretty. you could totally wear this. I wear frosty colors all the time. just put it on the lower part of your lid and blend it out 🙂

  14. Anitacska says:

    I think it’s gorgeous! Can I have it? 😉

  15. karleigh says:

    I love that! It’s like my beloved Juxt LOL I’m a sucker for green eyeshadow, Humid, Juxt & Bio Green are my absolute faves. I guess the only things I regret are anything I’ve ever bought from Goss… I get caught up in the fact hundreds of other girls want the swag and I comment straight away without checking if its my shade =0/ such a douche!

  16. Bernice says:

    Maybe you can use it on your inner tear duct?

  17. Nazneen says:

    I have that one, or a very similar shade! I love it! It looks lovely with a deep green liner (Bobbi Brown Ivy gel liner or MAC Tarnish kohl), and coral cheeks and lips. Hot pink looks pretty with it too so long as you keep the textures sheer.

    But aren’t Shu shadows just the business, quality-wise? Like velvet.

  18. Jamie says:

    use it with mac’s club and vex! looks gorgeous!

  19. Aleksis says:

    Ooh yeah not a fan..I hate green shadow enough as it is. lol

  20. Helena says:

    I can hold onto it for you. :p

  21. Andrea says:

    I think it’s lovely!

  22. Joyce says:

    i think it’s a very pretty shade…..it’ll be good to blend with a dark color if you think it’s too much on its own 🙂
