  1. I would use it all over the lid, blend NARS Night Porter in the outer v, and use Smashbox Bronze Cream Liner on the upper lashline.

    I would use Chilled on Ice paint pot all over as a base, then press on Shimmermint all over the lid. Then I’d put Stars N Rockets in the crease and blend upwards towards the brow. I’d use Hepcat in the outer V to cut the crease a little bit and add some definition. Followed with Seedy Pearl as a highlighter and in the inner corner.

    For blush I’d probably go subtle and use MAC Feeling with some Snowglobe to highlight the tops of my cheekbones. I’d use Big Bow from the Hello Kitty collection to finish off the look.

  3. Carrie Ann

    I would wear it with a warm brown shade in the crease, maybe over a Paint Pot like Indianwood. I’d wear a dark brown eye liner, coral or pink blush and a coral/pink lip gloss or lipstick.

    I wore this over For Effect paint pot, smoked out, with lots of black eye pencil smudged around the upper and lower lashlines. I applied lots of black mascara and some false eyelashes. I put Well Dressed powder blush on the apples of the cheeks and on the lips I used Creme Cup lipstick followed by Pleasure Principle dazzleglass. I was very happy with the result. :)

  5. I use let’s skate paintpobt all over the eye and then pack shimmermint (or frozen blue) on lid, and blend up to the crease. For lips the MAC clerk used the matte pink shade from posh paradise collection. She wore that look so that’s where I got the idea, bur in my own version of ir. Ir looks great !!

  6. I’d pair with Satin Taupe.

  7. Marsha

    I did a look I loved recently with Shimmermint on the lid and MAC Mothbrown in the crease.

    I’m actually wearing it today! :) I have NYX Milk as a color base, then Shimmermint in the inner corner and outer V, MAC Brill in the center of the lid, and blended up toward the brow with purples! I used Urban Decay Exhaust and blended to the brow with MAC Creamy Bisque and just a touch of Urban Decay Romp in the crease. I’ve gotten lots of compliments on it :)

  9. Since frosty blue (or any frosty colors in fact) don’t look great on me, I think I’d like to use a darker color on the outer crease, maybe a midnight blue or a black color.

    Painterly Paint pot as base/ primer, pack the lid with Shimmermint, Then grab those mettalic pigments I can’t buy until tomorrow, lol! Silvery color on inner corner and into the crease just past the iris, and line under the eye with it. Maybe some on the browbone to highlight if it sheers out? If not then a touch of cool shimmer from my vast collection, thinking Siler Aura powder. And hey! along the top of the cheekbone too. Then the dark blue from the same piggie group and catch the rest of the crease and then the outer v. Since I haven’t actually gotten my little monster paws on the product yet I’m thinking blend a speck of silver into the blue in the inner part of the blue. It’s dark and the transition to Monty green might need it. But might not… My ideas were tried with Surf The Ocean Stack, very similar colors. I had to pass on the individual colors as I bought a house to keep my brush and red lipstick collection in.

    So! Some lowlining (right term?) on the lower waterline with Shimmermint or the Metallic Pearlglide liner in light green I can’t actually find this second to get the name of… or maybe another piggie stack color from the lovely Frozen Colors. The red needs to go!! Her Own DeVices nonblush/ contour (I’m so in love with that, still!) and the lips? Whirls and Twirls Lipstick. So pretty I wear it around the house at night. Just pink enough to look alive, lol! I’m like an NC5 and can get a bit unfed vampire looking.

    Eyeliner, top only. None if it’s a short cold day. The blue piggie should have been stretched along most of the lash roots with a smudge brush. Lots of black mascara.
    But if it’s a long cold night! False lashes, mascara, lots of glitter eyeliner in silver, I’m loving Sephoras! So twinkly on the MUA I fell in love. Use the brush to press the glitter on and be patient; it takes a bit to build up a fat line. It does well over liner- a dark blue like Midnight Blues Fluidline maybe, just avoid black. I left liner off the tamer version to show off the mint green lid. The partial blue piggie line should be plenty but I don’t think glitter will adhere as well to just shadow.

    So, Frosty, frozen, metallic/ icy sheen, it’s Glitter And Ice!

    Ooof! Forgot to mention… That Emerald pigment from MAC Fall Color would be great instead of the Metallic blue; I recall it having shimmer in it? And a silver or cool white eyeshadow. The idea is frozen. And leave plenty of Minty Fresh showing! Unusual color. Very Coke bottle as well as ice; lots of fun things to do with Shimmermint!

    I wore this the other day…
    Club on the inner and outer lid.
    Shimmermint on the center of the lid,
    Soft Brown in the crease.
    Ricepaper to highlight under the brow.
    and long false eyelashes! <3

  13. I haven’t worn my “Shimmermint” yet, but I’m thinking to pair it with “Let’s Skate” paint pot, Benefit’s “They’re Real” mascara, probably a bit of Rock & Republic’s “X-Rated” blush, UD’s “Moonshine” cream highlight, and my “Pleasure Principle” dazzleglass, so in the right light it’ll be like “POW – doinkee doinkee twinkee” (think of the sound effects of twinkling, sparkling things like crystals and star chimes lol)

    I tried a look today with it and I loved it.

    I used Painterly Paint Pot as a base and then a wash of Shimmermint with a 217 brush all over the lid and slightly into the crease. Blended Smut eyeshadow into the outer V and lower lash line and then Phloof eyeshadow in the inner corners. Blanc Type eyeshadow as my highlight. Lined top lashline with Blacktrack Fluidline and then some MAC Zoom Lash mascara.

    NARS Madly blush on the cheeks with Dior Rose Diamond to highlight the top of my cheeks and down my nose.

    MAC Rags to Riches Dazzleglass on the lips.

    I thought it looked really nice and it really brought out my green eyes :)
