Bobbi Brown: Long-Wear Cream Eyeshadow Stick: Forest: $28

 

This is a cool emerald green cream eyeshadow that glides on and can be used to shade, define, smoke or highlight the eye.  Its formula makes it last for up to 8 hours without creasing, flaking or fading.  It is a fan favorite and can add as much or as little green to your look.

MAC Cosmetics: Pigment: Emerald Green: $21

 

MAC Pigment is a highly concentrated loose powder that can be used to create a subtle or dramatic look.  The pigments do not streak or cake when applied to the face.  Pigments can be used on top of or in place of eyeshadow, liner or even mixed with lip colors.  These pigments are a huge favorite of ours and come in a variety of colors.

Have a happy 2013 with emerald.
