Garden of Eden Eyes of the Day

It's no secret that I love colorful eyeshadow.  Purples and greens are probably my favorite colors, so I figured I better make the Sleek Garden of Eden eyeshadow palette mine.  I ordered mine from Amazon, but Sleek also delivers to the US, so it is possible to order directly from them.

I used three of the green shades and one of the brown-y plummy shades for today's eyes of the day.

I used: Evergreen all over the moving lid and the inner 1/3 of the lower lashline
          Fauna in the outer v and crease, and the outer 2/3 of the lower lashline
          Tree of Life as liner on the upper lashline
          Flora in the upper part of the crease blended up towards the brow

Also: Too Faced Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner in Perfect Black on the lower waterline
         L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara

The greens in this palette are gorgeous.  Super shimmery and wonderfully pigmented.  I do find all of the shimmery shadows to be quite soft and slightly fragile.  The matte shades are a little stiffer, but definitely workable.

If you love greens and plums, you might just want to get your hands on the Garden of Eden palette.

Have a wonderful day, friends!
