Makeup Wars: Pantone Emerald and Green Makeup For St. Patrick’s Day

Saint Patrick’s Day is coming up and emerald is the Pantone color of the year. How convenient is that? This week, the Makeup Wars bloggers take a look at everything emerald  and green.

Outside of Saint Patrick’s Day, green is not a color that I wear much, or at least not any green as bright as emerald. So, I decided to  do a bit of looking through my collection to see what among my extensive collection of palettes had the best greens. It was kind of slim pickings, but I found a couple of nice shades among a few of my favorite palettes. Interestingly, the best selection I found was in one of my most affordable palettes. I’ll save that for last.


Starting with a few more expensive choices, Urban Decay came through on both.  The Theodora Palette has two nice Greens in it and it is an awesome palette all around.  You can see my previous review of it with swatches here. Below are swatches of the greens from Urban Decay Theodora.

Next, the Urban Decay Vice Palette, another great UD choice, has a beautiful duochrome green/blue in it called Junkie. Depending on how the light hits, it looks emerald or it looks like a vivid blue/green. See my full Urban Decay Vice review here.


Here is a swatch of Junkie.

But here is the best source of greens I found in one palette, and you can get this one for only $13 right now! The BH Cosmetics Party Girl Palette has a nice selection of well pigmented green shades.  You can see the full review here.


BH Cosmetics does a good job at providing palettes with numerous great shades at excellent prices. The pigment in their shadows is surprisingly good for the ultra cheap cost. Here swatches of the greens from the Party Girl Palette.
