Maybelline Eyestudio - Green with Envy



Of the 3 quads I've tried, this is my favourite quad from the Eyestudio line so far. The colours are soft and swatch easily.


Simple basic look using Green with Envy:


The colours are pigmented and easily blendable, yet each colour stands out on its own without looking muddy. There is a bit of fallout but not so much that you look like a confetti accident.


This was taken at the end of the day so unfortunately most of my makeup already wore off. For the record I was wearing MAC Refined MSF and Jazzed lipstick as well as the concealer and foundation.



If you're wondering why my lip colour changed in the last picture its because I was trying out MAC Honeymoon lipstick. It doesn't really go with this look though, seems to wash me out. A pink lip colour definitely complements the green tones more.

Icyswirls got me in a recent post with a 'Would you Rather' tag, so here goes :)

1.Would you rather go out with messy hair and nice makeup or nice hair and no makeup?
Messy hair + nice makeup! No great hair day can hide my pores and redness...

2.Would you rather shave your eyebrows or have your eyelashes fall out?
Assuming the eyelashes will grow back again (since shaving brows is temporary) I would go without lashes. Mostly because brows frame my face and my lashes aren't even noticed by anyone unless I curl them. I'd rather just use fake lashes.

3.Would you rather be forced to only shop at MAC or Sephora for the rest of your life?
Sephora! MAC has really tempting LE products sometimes but it gets boring. At least Sephora has variety.

4.Would you rather wear lipgloss/lipliner look or 80's perm?

5.Would you rather leave the house with an obvious foundation line or overdone blush?
Foundation line...I've probably done it before unintentionally with foundation that oxidized on me

6.Would you rather wear mc hammer pants or biker shorts in public?
Mc hammer pants at least I could claim it was a fashion phase.

7.Would you rather have a bad orangey spray tan or really weird tan lines that cant be covered?
I can't decide! Maybe the tan lines...

8.Would you rather have a bad haircut or bad hair color?
Hair colour

9.Would you rather HAVE YOUTUBE or TWITTER taken away forever?
I use Twitter way more often than YT...but YT has tutorials on anything and everything so probably would give up Twitter.

10.Would you rather give up using makeup brushes or mascara?
Makeup brushes. When I first started using makeup I was too cheap/ignorant to buy brushes so fingers were my tools of choice :D

And great picks for the Would You Rather. I would pick almost the exact same thing as you did. Except I would go for good hair&no makeup

i usually pick up that maybelline eyestudio quad only to put it back down again bc I remember that I never wear green eyeshadow. your look makes me want to go out and get it again. =]
