  1. Lovely colors!! My favorites are the Inglots.

  2. nicole

    My favorite is makeup designory’s “moss” its so beauitul and has a beautiful golden sheen

  3. My favorite is 1. Lancome Designer. Because if you’re going green you might as well go dark green! I struggle with this color because I have brown eyes with a bit of green. I find that this shade can look too blended with my eye color. As a fellow brown eyed girl, what do you think are the best eyeshadow colors for brown eyes?

    MAC Henna, but it’s LE. I picked up at the CCO last year :)

  5. I love the inglot 419 and mac sumptuous olive, they are both really gorgeous!

  6. Amanda

    MAC Henna, unfortunately that one was an LE, but its great.

  7. Gooo olive greens! I have Wet n’ Wild Comfort Zone, but MAC Sumptuous Olive keeps a very special place in my heart (it’s my first MAC).

    mac sumultanous (sp?) olive. omg the best texture. this is the quality that mac needs to instill in all its shadows esp those damn quads!

  9. Hillary

    Night Light pigment by MAC!

    Christine, your 5 Ways posts are my favorite! I only have the Comfort Zone color as I don’t really gravitate towards this kind of shade but those Inglots look quite lovely.

    I love Sumptous Olive by MAC – so gorgeous. ♥

  12. Mariella

    I’d have to add Stila La Douce to your list – it is gorgeous and, oddly enough, I am wearing it today for the first time in a while. I also like MAC’s Sumptuous Olive but it can go sort of muddy and look more brown than green if you over-blend but still, it had a place in my heart.

  13. Maureen

    I like MAC’s Green Smoke!

  14. Rebecca

    I’ve been wanting to try lancome designer because I bought mac sumptuous olive and i don’t know if maybe I just got a bad one or if they are all like that but it doesn’t have good color payoff at all, i have to pack on a ton to get it looking right.

    Awww you didnt say Urban Decay “Chains” LOOOOOVE that one!

  16. Rose

    olives are so pretty but the color on me looks very drab and tired :\

  17. Amanda

    Where can you buy Inglot? #433 looks excellent.

  18. I love olives but for some reason I rarely wear them. Those inglots look so perfect though!

  19. Steph

    MAC Sumptuous Olive!

  20. Kathy S.

    MAC’s Flourishing

  21. Joanna

  23. My favourite olive green eye shadow is Sumptuous Olive from MAC

  24. Raania

    Mac golden olive pigment and Mac sumptuous olive

  25. Mikka

    …any suggestions for a good matte olive green? that’s something I don’t have in my collection yet :)

  26. Kim

    I used to LOVE UD Chains, but they don’t make it anymore. On the hunt for a dup for it

  27. Ines

    Chanel nº88 vert kakhi,I like this colour very much

  28. I love Olive shades! My favorite is Make Up For Ever #84, its a gorgeous blackened olive with hint of gold!

  29. Cynthia

    I know you’ve had a few of these “5 great color” posts and I’ve wondered if you had done some for antiqued gold? I know olive green is similar but I wanted to see something slightly more golden. I tried searching but I couldn’t find it. I know you are such a huge fan of antique goldish colers so that why i ask. Thanks!

    These are all BEAUTIFUL colours!! The WnW is my fav of them all.

    I absolutely love theBalm All About Alex…guess you could call it an olive with other shades mixed in…seems to take on different tones based on what shades I wear it with. It is the most versatile green I own. One of my favorite colors from them, and I own every palette they have made.
