Dark Green Eyeliners: Your Guide

These are some of the dark greens that I had that didn’t seem like they fit in well elsewhere–a couple of these turned out more olive green than I anticipated!

  1. Make Up For Ever #19L is a muted, dark green.
  2. NARS Rue de Rivoli is a dirty green with hints of brown and bronze shimmer. It is a touch darker compared to Dolce & Gabbana Green Almond.
  3. MAC Forever Green is a warm, olive-toned brown with hints of green sheen.
  4. Urban Decay Mildew is a darkened green with subtle brown undertones.
  5. shu uemura ME Green 07 is a minted green.
  6. Korres #4 is a muted, mossy green with a matte finish. (DC)
  7. Dolce & Gabbana Green Almond is a darkened green with a brow base. It is lighter than NARS Rue de Rovli.

TEMPTALIA PICKS:  #4 (pigmentation, longevity)

Behind-the-Series:  It was my intention to provide heavy, opaque swatches to provide an accurate color comparison.  Some eyeliners required one pass, some required five, and a few even more.  When possible, the shade name (above) is linked to the original review so you can read more about the quality, wear, etc. of a particular eyeliner.  If we’ve never done a review, there will be no link.  Shades that were limited edition will be marked with “(LE)” and shades that were discontinued will be marked with “(DC)” after the color description.  You can also find all comparisons on The Dupe List.

    No UD Stash? That’s my favorite eyeliner, I think – though maybe you would consider it khaki?

    I use it on my upper lash line, smudged; I think it makes the green and gold flecks in my brown eyes come out.

    For dark green liners, I like MAC’s Rosemary and Thyme eye khol (I think it might be discontinued) but the pencil I like best of all is from Gosh. It’s a shade called Golden Moss and it looks a lot like UD Mildew (only without the smudging on me) or Nars Rue de Rivoli. Another one I really love and it’s a jumbo pencil so it works as a shadow as well as a liner, is Sephora’s Jumbo Pencil in Khaki.

      I was just about to respond and say that my favourite is Gosh’s Golden Moss too. You’re right it is a lot like UD Mildew except I find it to be a little bit more golden green than Mildew. Which reminds me to get more eyeliners from Gosh…

    Thank you so much for doing these comparisons. This is so very helpful in making some choices when it would be beyond complicated or beyond expensive to try them out in stores or on line. UD does right by my with Mildew, as the khaki-gold brings out the green in my hazel-colored eyes. I’m falling for the MUFE #19 and D&G Green Almond, though.

    I have green eyes & Mildew is my all-time favorite eyeliner to wear!
