Earlier this week, Emerald was named color of the year 2013 by Pantone (recall that Tangerine Tango was 2012’s color of the year). So, here at BeautyStat, we thought we’d give you a few cosmetic choices within this hue to purchase — even Skyy Hadley (owner of As “U” Wish Nail Spa in Hoboken, NJ) gave us some of her favorite Emerald colored nail polishes to check out, “The jewel-toned emerald is a classically elegant color that makes my clients feel sophisticated, rejuvenated, balanced and radiant,” said Hadley. There are so many greens to choose from, so we have highlighted some beauty products including nail polishes, eyeshadows and more for you with different price points as well as shades…
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Covet ($19.00) A smudge-proof liner that smoothly glides on the eyes. Available at Sephora, ULTA, and select Macy’s as well as online. Covet is considered a peacock green, and this pencil is also available in 23 other colors.
Nails Inc. Emerald Nail Jewelry in Piccadilly Arcade ($9.50) Nail polish that adorns your nails like precious jewels! This polish is the ultimate nail accessory to add sparkle to any outfit. This revolutionary formula has been created with hand-cut particles creating faceted fragments that dazzle like precious stones.
BY TERRY Ombre Blackstar Color-Fix Cream Eyeshadow in Fizzy Jade ($43.00). Offers an instantly smooth glow, which is also smudge-proof. The glistening color adds depth and dimension for either day or night. This melting eyeshadow with its practical pen format, concentrated with ultra-smoothing Tahitian black pearl extract, lights up eyelids with radiance-trapping multi-reflective shine. Its “tattoo-hold” stretch texture evens out eyelids with a water-proof, radiance-lift reshaping film.
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner ($20.00) in Moss From a thin line to a bold, dramatic swoop, the marker-like tip on this easy-glide liner makes it easy to create an emerald eye with one stroke. The long-wearing formula stays in place until you say when – no smudging, feathering or running.
L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Endless Sea ($7.95) Offers a long-lasting wear and retains its pop-of-color throughout the day. I often wear these shadows, as I love not having to reapply my makeup. Its sparkle and color burst is smudge-proof and can be worn alone or layered with other colors.
Here are some Emerald colored cosmetics from Lancôme:
