I must admit I left behind my efforts to make Burberry Pale Barley work because I just fell in love with 3 marvelous greenish shades (Chanel Jade Shore, Nars Euphrate and Dior Outremer). However, I decided I could keep on loving greens while still looking for options to make this neutral shade more fun. So, I decided to try it with the green part of Nars Mad Mad World.
Nars matte eyeshadows aren't the best in the market, in fact, it's very difficult to find good mattes among all brands. Probably Inglot mattes are among the best in my opinión. In particular, this duo is great. It doesn't feel chalky and it's easy to blend into other shades. I used Pale Barley all over the lid, Mad Mad World (green) on the outer V and I lined with Bobbi Brown Ivy Shimmer gel eyeliner.
I found this to be a nice eye of the day for a casual Friday.
Disclaimer: I know many people love this shade, I actually used to last year. However, I found it a bit blah lately, especially because I'm loving bolder shades this year. Anyway, I decided to give it a try in less neutral combos before purging it.
