A while back, Shiseido Singapore gave me this palette to review. Part of the multi-hued, rainbow-splashed Shiseido Autumn 2010 collection, Jungle (S$51) contains three different shades of green.
Comprising a foresty golden-olive, a vibrant grass green and an aqua green, this palette can easily create a variety of green eye looks. For reference, Shiseido describes this trio as ‘deep glossy green, bright leaf green and pale silver green’.
As its name suggests, these shades are reminiscent of the foliage in a tropical rainforest. Click on the image above to learn more about the inspiration behind this beautiful palette created by Dick Page.
On their own or in unison, these colours are easy to wear. I wondered about pairing the warm olive with the other two – clearly cooler – colours but somehow they blend effortlessly together, so smooth is their texture. I also love the soft shimmer that is dispersed throughout these pleasing hues, adding a subtle glimmer to the eye. They aren’t crazily pigmented but they do build up and show up well over a good eyeshadow base.
Here is a simple EOTD that I did with this palette. See how vibrant they can be, over my bases?
And here I am with the shadows still on, 10 hours later. Although they’d faded slightly, the colours had settled into a beautiful seamless blend. ♥
