Best Green Eyeshadows | Shimmery + Cool-Toned (2019)

Shimmery + Cool-Toned

Best Green Eyeshadows

After sharing my favorite shimmery, warm-toned green eyeshadows, you know that what follows are the cool(er)-toned favorites, which you’ll find in this post. I do feel like this clearly shows that the world needs more cool-toned greens, though… 

You can find more of the cool-toned green eyeshadows (that are permanent) that I’ve swatched/reviewed in the past here. You can also get some inspiration on how to incorporate green eyeshadow into your looks here.

I’d love to hear what your favorite cool(er)-toned green eyeshadows are in the comments below — you can check out the community’s recommendations (as a whole) — don’t forget you can refine those recommendations by all sorts of things from product characteristics (like price and brand) as well as who recommended the products (like selecting characteristics most similar to your own coloring, e.g. skin tone, eye color, and so on).

P.S. — The details for the look featured in this post can be found here.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Unless you’re a color expert, artist, or Christine, it’s difficult to find cool greens that most would agree were not teal! These two posts were everything! Thanks so much. Clearly, even SG has to up their cool green game. I suspect there are some old MUFEs, though. (To me, new does not count, lol.)

I do not like so much single eyeshadow, but I like palette and green shades. So I bought the huda beauty Emerald palette that satisfys nicely my desire for Green. Nice palette, even if I do not like so much those big glittery shades that are everywhere in the latest palette relases

Forbidden is also among my all time favorite eyeshadows. I also love Nars Misfit even though it is not a single, it s a duo. I just love green eye shadow so much and I love that you shared your favorites. Also ordered just my luck palette based on your review💚

Yep, I love these too. Especially Night Sky, Typhoon, Forbidden and Unexpected.
I don’t have any of these kinds in singles, but UD’s Damaged is a good dupe for some of them.
Bareminerls have a few gorgeous green shades as well, but mostly in palettes.

My favs are MUFE Aqua Cream #52, it definitely adds a summery vibe to any look, and ME 304 Emerald by MUFE. I think it’s a kind of color they do very well
