  1. Oooh I love green things... this is no exception! You're looking beautiful as usual, even if you are a little bit under the weather still. I love that lip colour on you!

  2. This is a look I don't care for at all - I find that both the lip color & the green on your lid are a bit too dark for your beautiful complexion. Would love to see this look toned down a bit.

  3. Awesome! I like that light green, I'm gonna have to dig around my junks and see if I have that shade :)

  4. RaeRae,
    Why thank you! I love green too, but I haven't been wearing it much lately. St. Patty's Day always makes me wear green makeup tho. :-)

    Hmmm...not sure how to respond to that since I rarely do "toned down" looks...

    Thank you! I'm sure you must have something like it in your collection!

  5. I've been eyeing Rustic but it's really hard to tell from photographs if the green flash shows up much. Been loving all my Morgana Minerals lipsticks but I might need to get a sample of that one first. Browns look bad on my coloring so I'm hoping the green shimmer shows up a lot. It's certainly intriguing.

  6. kelli,
    I totally notice the green when wearing it. I should have taken a photo with the flash on to show it better. I didn't think I would like it but I do! It's not very brown either, seems more rusty like the name I guess. :-D

  7. I love how the crease colour is so defined from the lid colour :)

    Wtf at Marcey's comment, I take it she's not read your blog before. I've seen so many rude and troll comments over the past 2 days, there must be something in the proverbial water.

  8. SilhouetteScreams ,
    Thank you. :-)

    I have no idea. That's the most negative comment I've received so far. If you don't like it, then don't look. I don't expect or even want everyone to like my looks, but sheesh, that is rude.

    It is really pretty. I like it much more than I thought I would. :-D

  9. WTF @ Marcey dude... I agree with muh babay SilhouetteScreams, I have been seeing/getting lots of weird troll-y comments the last couple days. Whyyyyy?

    I love that lippie with the eyes, I'm really seeing a green come out of it, although I don't know if that's maybe just from the shadows. You look lovely :)

  10. Yeah, wtf, you can make a suggestion, say you might do *one* element differently, but not, "oh, the whole look is wrong". If that is the way you feel, don't say anything...

    I was gonna say I love the lippie. First thing I noticed when I saw your pic. It's such a gorgeous color *bites lip*. Must not spend more money this month. Already have Watermelon on the way :D.

    I think you made a great choice w. the eyeshadow color since it plays up the shine color of the lippie. And the blush is a nice, subtle touch.

  11. Heather,
    I have no idea, but it's seriously messed up. Some people have nothing better to do than patrol the internet to bother others.
    Thank you! Yes, the green does show up in the lippie. Me likey.

    I agree, you don't have to like everything but to leave a comment only to be negative is just rude.
    It is pretty. I'm going to wait a while before buying these in full size. Need to save money!
    Thanks, I'm glad you like it. :-D

  12. Green is my favourite colour, this look is amazing! I like your smokey looks :)

  13. Jenny$1983,
    Yay! Thank you! I'm glad you like them. Green is such a great colour.

  14. Sweet look, gotta love those greens!

    I've wanted to order from Archetype Cosmetics for quite some time now, the have so many gorgeous eyeshadows. But I'm a bit put off by the negative things I've read about the customer service and stuff. What is your experience?

  15. Merethe,
    Thank you!

    My experience was very good. I ordered a 2nd time recently and that went well too. :-D I think they fixed their CS issues. At least that is what it seems to be.
