One of my favorite colors of all-time is emerald green. It has so much depth, and I love that it can be cooler or warmer and be so, so different.

  1. Zoya Logan — a very cool-toned, glittering emerald green polish
  2. Milani Green Safari — an amazing emerald green cream eyeshadow that can be used as eyeliner or as a base
  3. Illamasqua Violate — because I can’t have a list that doesn’t include an emerald green lip color
  4. Zoya Holly — vibrant, warm-toned emerald green
  5. Make Up For Ever #80 — a smoky, slightly blackened emerald green eyeshadow

Have you worn any emerald green beauty products before?

    I love this post, thank you so much!! I’m just now learning how to incorporate greens into my eyeshadow looks…and one of the most gorgeous shades I’ve come across is the blackened green in the Le Metier de Beaute Eagles Envy eye kaleidoscope! Actually that whole kaleidoscope is gorgeous, it is by far one of the most beautiful quads I’ve ever owned and that blackened emerald totally makes it!

  4. I looooove emerald! I was so happy when it was chosen as the color of the year.

  5. The nailpolish and eyeshadow are beautiful, but all I can think of is the Wizard of Oz… I need to get into the Christmas spirit!

  6. the first one is pretty

  7. Emerald green is a colour I don’t have *nearly* enough of in my makeup wardrobe, I think.

    I guess I never gravitated towards it because I have blue/grey eyes, but it is a gorgeous colour in and of itself! So Christmassy too :-)

    I especially want that Illamasqua lipcolour…

  8. Love them all, but a little unsure on wearing emerald green on my lips! 😛

  10. Great choices! The first product for me that comes to mind is China Glaze Jolly Holly.

  11. My least favourite colour of eyeshadow. Other than orange, it is the other tricky colour that pulls my skin in all kinds of directions, most of them not flattering. I can pull off MUFE #80 posted above.

    Dammit, Illamasqua, could you JUST release Violate somewhere in the US? I can’t afford to just order it from the UK.

    Nice picks! That Illamasqua gloss looks killer! Their shades are so unique :)
