Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 4 - 2011

Let’s have a ’round the blogosphere’ love in…

What’s the one shade you wish you could pull off, but can’t?

Easy peasy… you can count on one hand the number of times I’ve posted a FOTD on here wearing green eyeshadow.  It looks vile against both my skintone and eye colour.  I’ve tried khaki and lime, chartreuse and forest, jade and seafoam.  It just ain’t happening in this lifetime.
