Jane Iredale: Eye Look II With Green Silk



After getting acquainted with Jane Iredale's Eye Gloss in Wine Silk and totally loving it, I decided to get myself another one. It was darned difficult choosing from the remaining seven available shades but in the end, I got something green. Haa, I kinda question my choice though. Too late.......musn't regret.

You know I like simple. For this look, I used:



L-R
Jane Iredale Eye Gloss - Green Silk
Jane Iredale Eye Pencil - Black/Grey
Stila Convertible Eye Color - Forest
GOSH Wonder Volume Mascara

All I did was apply Green Silk all over the lid, lined the upper lashline with the Black/Grey Eye Pencil and then applied a bit more of Green Silk over the eyelining. I used the olive green eyeliner portion of Stila Convertible Eye Color to line the outer two-thirds of the lower lashline. Curled lashes and applied mascara. Done!





Green Silk seems to have more shimmer than the burgundy of Wine Silk. It's a light silver green, a sage green. The finish of Green Silk reminds me a lot of the Lights of ELLIS FAAS but there are differences. Jane Iredale Eye Gloss is waterproof and longlasting. ELLIS FAAS Light is also longlasting but not waterproof. Light will stay put unless you rubbed your eyes quite a fair bit. I just thought this might be of interest to some of you.

Great eye look. I can imagine it was a difficult choice for you as you like the brand so much. It's impossible to buy all of them. :( Thanks for showing this look. Take care, Nicole x

@The Diva's Polish
Thank you! I think it's way too simple to arouse any excitement. Haha! Well, some of us just like simple! :D

@Nicole
Oh yes, it's impossible to buy them all (but it's possible to let that play in my fantasy)! :D Thanks, Nicole. :)

When I got my first Eye Gloss (Wine Silk), I didn't really know what to expect. I got it with an open mind (actually, I didn't even read any reviews prior to buying!). Its durability surprised me. I hope you will like them when you get yours, Madiha. :)

Nice green shade! Please remind me again....where can I get Jane Iredale? Somehow, lately, I am in an adventurous mood to try out new makeup brands. ;)

Thanks, Cris. :)

@Michelle
I'm pleased to hear that. Thanks! :)

@Vonvon
Oooh, we all love makeup adventures, don't we? :D You might want to try Musthave. It's an online beauty store based in the UK. I think that would be the most convenient for you right now. There are also beauty salons that stock Jane Iredale products, but I'm sorry, I don't know where they are. I hope this helps. :)

@Dina
I'm glad, Dina. :)

When in doubt: choose green!
I like this look, it's a littlebit mermaid-y.

Really?! I always thought you should go for brown when in doubt! It's an overly safe colour. Can't go wrong there! ;D
