This shade of green is making a real scream! Patina is a sage-y, olive toned-green with flecks of gold to give it a metallic sheen! Okay, I'll stop rhyming now. Since we already know that lime green eyeliner is hot for summer, this is a beautiful and warm shade that makes for a gorgeous transition from summer to fall. Here are three patina-colored eye shadows new to the market that I think you'll love as much as I do.
Laura Mercier Eye Colour-Shimmer in Patina ($20) is part of the new Indian Summer Collection This shadow is a rich khaki-gold that contains light reflecting ingredients to create a "soft-focus" effect. This helps reduce the look of wrinkles and warms up the skin.
The color builds well,so it can be taken easily from day to night, and the texture is smooth, soft and easily blendable! All of the shadows in this collection can be worn wet or dry.
For two more more patina eye shadows,
Tarte Cosmetics Lock and Roll Eye Shadow Duo in Patina ($28) is a double sided eyeshadow (one side is creamy and one side is powder). I wish it were available in a range of colors, but for now, this new product comes in two shades only: Patina and Bronze.
Becca Cream Eye Colour in Patina ($25) is a highly pigmented shimmer cream shadow that glides on easily with your fingertips! Here's a helpful tip: these shadows tend to last longer if they are applied after your foundation and powder.
This color is so popular that it's actually already out of stock on the Becca website, so if you like it, I wouldn't wait too long to buy it or try it. See, I'm rapping again.
