Rockeresque Beauty’s Medusa

This is definitely a yellow-green, to my eyes. The application is good, the shimmer is excellent, opacity is solid…but it's less gold and more green than I expected from the vendor photos. I may have a bit of a challenge using this one. I don't know if it's my monitor, or if I got an “off” batch, but the vendor description even classifies this as a green-gold, rather than the other way around.

Fortunately, the only thing about this color I don't like is the shade itself. The color payoff itself is excellent. It adheres well and doesn't migrate or fade. The shade, though…just won't work easily with my coloring. To anyone else who loves / can easily wear warm greens, give Medusa a try. It's a good quality shadow…the color just isn't what I expected, and worse yet, it's one that I really can't wear.

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches
