Greensmoke is described as a "tarnished olive." It's a muted, dark olive brown with lighter green and gold shimmer that gives it a pearly sheen. There is some chunkier gold sparkle that doesn't bind with the base color that gets dusted away as soon as you blend it. The texture had a very firm press to it, which made getting color difficult without really jabbing at the surface. It started to fade noticeably after seven hours of wear.
