Glamour Girls POTW!

I'm very excited this week! It's my turn for Darling Girl Cosmetics' Pick of the Week!
This means I get to choose one of my most favorite shades to go on sale for all of you beauties to purchase this week! :D

My pick of the week is : 
Verdant Dream
Verdant Dream is one of my all time favorite DGC pigments. It's just stunning. If you don't own this one, you are surely missing out. SO hard to capture its beauty on camera.. It's a beautiful mint green that has a beautiful violet sheen and sometimes even looks like its shifting to a soft powder blue.

I was inspired to do this look by the upcoming holiday... Saint Patrick's Day ! I did a lovely mix of green shades with a wee bit o' gold , which no leprechaun would be caught dead without. ;)

What I used:
Darling Girl Cosmetics: Verdant  Dream - inner 1/2 lid and inner lower lash line
Darling Girl Cosmetics: Wicked - outer 1/2 lid
Darling Girl Cosmetics: Lizard Spock - crease & outer lower lash line
Darling Girl Cosmetics: Ghost Light - crease under Lizard Spock to aid with blending
Geek Chic Cosmetics: Kingslayer - Highlight
Darling Girl Cosmetics: Honey Pot - under lower lashline liner

ELF Liquid Eyeliner: black - eyeliner
Milani Liquif'eye Metallic Eye Liner Pencil: 01 Black - waterline
Maybelline The Mega Plush Volum Express Mascara: Very Black

Up close with Verdant Dream. So lovely.

The only shot I got in natural light that wasn't super blurry.

My swatches don't do it justice, but I tried...  Hehe. Hey.. that reminds me.. make sure you all tell my husband how much I NEED a new camera and maybe I'll get one for Christmas this year or something :D So have you bought your awesomely discounted jar of Verdant Dream yet? What's your favorite Darling Girl Cosmetics shade of Green? Don't get caught without wearing at least one wouldn't want me to pinch you! :D  Happy St.Paddy's Day everyone!
