I’d either pair it with Shimmermoss or Satin Taupe. I think it will look nice because greens and browns really make my eyes pop.

I would use it with a base eyeshadow, like Brule, and a thick eyeline with my Blactrack, lot of mascara, Nars Laguna on my face and Bare Necessity Dazzleglass on my lips.

A rather weird combo…but i’d use it with Birds and Berries from LOL collection. Can u tell i’m a veluxe pearl girl??? πŸ˜€
I would name the look “Sweet Birds and Punchy Berries”! πŸ˜€

Fuschia and Grape pigments….I love lime-ish green colors with purple and pink…or this with a light wash on the eyes with Violetta lipstick!!!!

Probably a navy or dark purple in the outer corner/crease and then thick eyeliner winged out a bit. Going for a “modern art eyes” type of thing.

I would wear this alone due to the intensity of this color, but i would wear it over bare study paint pot to give it an extra sheen:)

i would pair sweet and punchy with humid in the outer lid and sweet and punchy in the middle and chrome yellow in the inner corner and put a little bit of goldime on top of chrome yellow and use vanilla as my highlight color!!!

As I’m Brazilian, I’d put it with a deeper green and a yellow eyeshadow to make the perfect eye for Brazilian soccer games at World Cup.

I bet t his would be lovely with a rich mossy green, or maybe even a vibrant teal. I don’t know if i can get enough use out of it to buy it, but I can certainly think of ways to use it! MAC Steamy might be fun, with the gold-ish flecks…. Or Greensmoke….

I would absolutely love to pair this eyeshadow with a dark purple matte one in the crease. It would be a nice contrast. πŸ™‚

I will use it with my Humid Mac eyeshadow but I will also like to try it with some dark gray eyeshadow, maybe only use it with the olive green khol pencil of this collection, just to see how it works. My eyes are green so, I would try to create a all greens look

I would pair this with my Urban Decay Deluxe e/s in Graffiti for a bold green eye. I would wear a nude lip to keep the focus on the eyes.

I’m planning on trying it out with Coral crepe pp with melon pigment in the outer 2/3 with sweet and punchy in the inner 1/3.

Since it’s a pretty vivid, bold colour…I’d keep the focus on it by wearing it on my lid and then I’d just use a neutral (matte) contour colour (like Cork) in my crease for some added definition. I’d line my eyes using Dipdown fluidline from MAC. And mascara, of course.

I’d probably just pair with with a more neutral color like soft brown in the crease with a nice wash of sweet and punchy over the lid. =]

I would pair with Humid, MAC Liberty of London Birds and Berries eye shadow in the crease, and for lips use the Flurry of Fun lipglass! Thanks for all the awesome giveaways!

Not very original, but I saw Sweet & Punchy paired with Humid in the MAC website (under Looks, I think) and I thought it looked so sexy but pretty. πŸ™‚


I would pair this eyeshadow with a deep colour like beauty marked or black tied, for a sultry smokey eye, but a bright sultry smokey eye πŸ™‚

I’d love to use this on the lid and lower lashline, and smoke this out with brown in the crease during the day, and bump it up to black for a cool summer evening πŸ™‚

I would put this on my lid and in the crease use mulch..This would be a fun “going green” wilderness look I think!! I also think Sweet and Punchy would be nice in my inner courner!!

I would pair “sweet and punchy” with either “mulch” or “club” eyeshadows because I think it would just make the green pop even more. I would also add a soft brown eyeliner and thick coats of mascara.

i would pair it with either carbon or a dark brown e/s to make a pretty smokey look with a pop of color and peach/coral blush with coral or pale pink lips.

Id pair this with Lucky Green and Firecracker with Crystal Avalanche to highlight. It would be very bright, Summery and fun! ;D

I would probably use my dark olive-ish creamy shadowstick from Avon as a base, put this on and then use maybe one or two colors from my green/yellow/green NYX quad.

i think i would slightly tone it down with humid, wedge and woodwinked – giving it a brown-green look. simple face with only bronzer and lots of black mascara!

I’d pair it with Lala or Humid or maybe even a purple shade in the crease. I would most likely use Humid as a liner and see if I could use sweet and punchy under eye to give a little extra pop! Then I’d use a peach blush and a peach lipstick or gloss.

I would probably pair it with a brown in the crease to tone it down, or use it on the lower lash line, i’m not used to such bright colours! lol

I would use it with Humid and Bright Future from last year’s Style Warriors collection. Bright, crazy greens and yellows! Yummy!

I would pair it with a teal, a violet, a darker blue and a light pink eyeshadow to make it a really bright, eye-popping fun peacock eye, paired with my favorite lipcolor; Mac Petals & Peacocks!

ps. I would pee in my pants if I won one of your contest, I never win stuff!

I would LOVE to wear this with some brown liner, and maybe a little dot of Urban Decay Flash in the corner of the eyes. I think it’d look GREAT with a brown dress, or a purple bathing suit as well!

I think I’d wear this on my lower lash lash with my neutrals on my eyelids. I usually don’t wear such bright colors so I really don’t know how to work this out.

I’d pair this with gold and white shadows like Gorgeous Gold and Vanilla or maybe Nylon instead. I’d add some brown gel liner.

This is such a pretty color, I’d wear it primarily by itself across the lid and then a flesh color shadow to blend out and deepend the crease a tad. A nice warm peachy lipstick and voila, ready for fun in the sun!

For summer, I think it would be fun paired with UD Asphyxia… I love me some Mermaid looks when I am tan!
I cannot wait to get my hands on this color, its dreamy!

off to retweet

I’d layer this over the Pharaoh paint pot and blend with either Contrast or Shadowy Lady in the “outer V” and blend out with Soft Brown (skin color tone shadow).

I would love to get my hands on this! I’ve been picturing sweet and punchy with my mac plummage, and my beige caracai lancome lipstick and touched by light juicy tube.

i would pair it with a dark brown on the crease and a light cream color on the inner part of the eye, and line my upper and lower line with humid

Here is the link to my Sweet & Punchy tutorial and here is what I would pair it with: NYX Jumbo pencil in Yellow on a upper lid with Sweet & Punchy over it. Mac Marine Ultra Chrom Pencil in a crease with Mac Blue storm over it. Blend everything, then put Crystal Avalanche as a highlight. Line your water line and line upper lash line with Marine Ultra chrom pencil. Do your lashes. Put Hipness on your cheeks and Life’s a Breeze, Lazy Day, and Splashing on your lips.

I’d probably do something as boring as pairing this with Humid. Safe combo, but pretty. I would use also use Style blush on my cheeks, and a pale orange/coral lipstick or gloss.

Such a wonderful, bright color! For work, I would pair it with a greige, and put Sweet and Puncy either in the crease, or on the lid for a soft (if that is a word that can be used about anything with this color involved) smokey green-to neutral look.

For a more fun look, I think i would pair it with a semi-bright pink, maybe even one with golden shimmer. Pink and green are so pretty together.

Float on By eye kohl on the upper and lower waterline, Smolder eye kohl on the upper and lower lashline blended out a little, Sweet & Punchy on the lid, Humid in the crease, and hmm maybe some Shimmermoss in the inner corner of the eyes or chrome yellow… OOH MAYBE ELECTRIC EEL… yeahhh now I have to try this look out as soon as I get my stuff from To The Beach. oh and then probably vanilla pigment as a highlight since I’m obsessed with it and just use it with any look. then add some mascara and maybe fake lashes on the upper lashes and you’re all set. then you know some marine life highlight powder for blush, vanilla pigment for highlight again, maybe some contouring with any bronzer, Lazy Day lipstick on the lips and some Flurry of Fun lipglass on top applied with a brush so it isn’t so orange and the glitter isn’t so intense.

whoah sorry for the huge post haha I’m just excited to try out looks with the new products.

I’d pare it with MAC Humid on the lid. And some MUFE #92 in the crease, and darken it up a little with MAC Meet the fleet. (Even if I only have Meet the fleet, I’d pick the other colors from 88 or 120 palette :))

RT’ed, nickname: Monticka

I’d wear it over NYX milk eye pencil, winged out on the upper lid, and then with thick winged black fluidline eyeliner. Kind of in a Beyonce Telephone-video style. I’m liking this a lot lately, with varying bright colours πŸ™‚

I’d pair it with Urban Decay Goddess (on the outer third of the lid) and Shu Uemura ME600 (metallic ocean blue) (layered over Goddess, and swept over the outer half of the lid); and maybe just rim my eyes with simple black kohl liner.

I am in love with all blue and green for this summer. I already have a look in mind of this shadow in the inner corner of the eye blended into a bright blue and a touch of it in the crease to transition to a white with golden yellow flakes that I have to the brow…

With electric eel and plumage in the crease, I think it’ll look great!! I’d also love to make a cut crease look with carbon. I’m sure I’ll never do, because it’s sold out here in spain…

i’d wear it with a deep blackened hunter green shade, such as Lorac Jade maybe or the blackened green shade in my Kate gradient palette. This would go on near the inner corner and ball of the eyes, and then i’d blacken and line with the darker color. and maybe pair with a salmon pink color! it’d be fun to play around with πŸ˜€

Because I work in an office and this is a pretty bright color, I’d probably let my eyes be the focal point, and pair this with some bronzer, and a pale glossy lip, for a tropical but not o.t.t. look.

on the lid, id put this eyeshadow (with a little but of a soft medium brown to define the crease) with plumage to darken up the outer corner just a bit, then float on by as liner for the bottom lashline πŸ™‚

Id pair it with anything lol purples blues browns other greens. However I think the first color I will pair it with is Freshwater and Humid.

I will pair it with a lot of shadows from Alice UD Palette: Underland, Alice, Queen, Muchness, Mushroom… Curiouser… Absolem… very fun and summer looks
Good luck to everyone!!

i would definitely pair this with my Mac grease-paint stick in Uniformly Blue as liner, and a dark blue eyeshadow like Nehru on the outer V. (:

sweet & punchy all over, humid in the outer corner and seedy pearl in the inner corner plus some cute light pink on the lips…not too glossy or glittery plus some pink swoon on the cheeks (light hand) πŸ™‚

I would pair it with Bright Future from the Style Warrior collection with UD Mildew in the crease.

Also, Glossy peachy coral lips and bronzer.

This eyeshadow is soo pretty! I would wear it plain like a thick eyeliner with bronze cheeks and hot pink lips! Totally summer πŸ™‚

I’d probably pair this with Humid in the outer third of the lid, shadow blended out at the crease and a matte highlighter. Probably some black eyeliner and mascara also, would definitely have to go with muted lips and peach blush to finish off.

I would definately pair this with a coral colour to create that perfect tropical “to the beach” look. When I want to alter the look for an evening look, i would add a dark brown to the outer corner of the eye for some “smokiness”

Hey doll! Thanks for another fabulous opportunity! Follow you almost daily (as soon as I can!). I adore your blog and lovin the new look of it!

A: Well, I don’t have many eyeshadows OR anything remotely similar to this color. However, it looks absolutely gorgeous in the swatch you did and a FOTD! I would use it on the lid and pair it with Ricepaper (highlight), Brownscript (crease), and Sketch (outter corners). I would also use a plum/purple liner or shadow for under the waterline and a black eyeliner on the lid.

Good luck to EVERYONE and best wishes! ♥

I’d pair this with the dark green side of my metallic green Isa Dora Duo, and my Clarins Forest Green in the outer V. That would make my green eyes pop so much πŸ˜€ actually now that I think about it, I might have to buy it (unless I’m lucky enough to win πŸ˜€ ) just for this combo, it sounds like it would be awesome!

I’m not entering because I already bought this eyeshadow, but I’m so glad you asked that question because I needed ideas for what to pair it with, lol!

I think i would pair this with a coral on the first half of the eye this in the middle/end and a nice deep brown in the crease with a darker almost black brown in the outer v.

I would pair this eyeshadow with Haunting,Bright sunshine, and the new Urban Decay eyeshadow Aquarius!! I would also put Nude rose Lipstick on the lips, with hush cream color base on my cheeks! πŸ™‚

I’d use Crest the wave on the inside corners, sweet & punchy in the middle, and Lala on the outer edge… kinda like a watermelon. black liner and black mascara!

I would use it with a dark gray for a smokey eye look or I would use any dark teal e/s to go in the crease with a hint of black in the outer V or the eye. =D

A nude color all over the lid, then this on the outer half of the lid, and then a darker purple or green. Of course with liner and mascara πŸ™‚

I had a look the other day with a shade similar to this and it used a peach shade also!! I loved it, but I would mostly likely pair teals with it, I’ve always been fond of those combos.

I’d love to try it with a vibrant purple (maybe mac’s violet pigment) in the outer corner,deeper wine color (maybe ud’s metropolitan) in the crease and black liner.

I’m actually wearing this today! I have Sweet and Punch all over the lid, Shimmermoss on the outer 1/3, Firecracker in the crease, and Nanogold as a highlight (as well as in the inner “V”). I lined under the eye with Rosemary and Thyme, Hipness on the cheeks (w/ Soft and Gentle to highlight), and Easy Lounger on the lips! I luvs the look! And I want a backup! =) Sweet and Punchy is def. my fav. shadow of the 5.

I would wear this eyeshadow itself as it is! It is such a nice lime-greenish color, perfect for an all-over lid wash of color for a nice summmer sunny day πŸ™‚

I would pair this with like a dark brown I have in my makeup kit idk what brand but it was like shimmers of green and blue and yellow it’s perfect

I would use this in the inner corner or inner 1/3 of my life; in addition I would use starsmakeuphaven (SMH) in Fresh. LOVE that color.

I would probably use some black in the outer crease too

Hmmm… I only have neutral colors in my collection.. If I win this, I would probably pair it up with a coral color such as woodwinked on the crease.. πŸ™‚
