I will be the first to admit I hate letting go of Summer, but there is something so tantalizing and fresh about the rich, intense hues of Fall that make the seasonal transition a little less bittersweet. One colour we are obsessed with this Fall: emerald. Luxe, opulent, alluring, this jewel-inspired hue evokes a curious mystique with an intense vibrancy. Smoky eye shadow, stand-out eye liner, metallic lacquered nails – how could we resist emeralds’ enchanting charm? We have rounded up a few of our favourite products in this seductive shade that are sure to bewitch you, too!
1. Illamasqua Nail Varnish in ‘Viridian’, $14
This highly-pigmented Illamasqua formula delivers major payoff: one coat did the trick for luxe colour, shiny metallic finish, fast-drying and chip-resistant polish worthy of your love.
2. Urban Decay Eyeshadow, $18, available at Sephora
Urban Decay recently unveiled their new and improved eye shadow formula, which proved you really can make a good thing great! The colour is rich and vibrant, the texture is velvety yet light, and the finish is multi-dimensional and long-lasting. We love ‘Loaded’, a deep metallic emerald that is the perfect shadow to create a sultry, rich smoky eye.
3. Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash Mascara in ‘#4 Green’, $23, available at Sephora
If subtle is more your style, opt for an emerald coloured mascara such as Make Up For Ever’s Smoky Lash. This all-in-one mascara delivers length, curl, volume and mega pigment. A dense fibre brush separates and coats each and every lash with a pop of colour. J’adore!
4. Joe Fresh Liquid Eyeliner in ‘Emerald’, $8 available at Joe Fresh
For a striking splash of colour, line eyes with the newly launched Joe Fresh Liquid Eyeliner, fittingly called ‘Emerald’. This metallic formula combines gorgeous gleam with mega-colour impact and ultra staying power. An ultra-fine long brush ensures smooth, easy and precise application. A stellar product at such a bargain, this is a definite must-have!
