Greetings from the deck of an astral warship, my fellow rogues!
I spent quite a bit of time this weekend with a new group of adventurers, sailing the astral seas in search of glittering green glory! What can I say, my rogueish expertise is much sought after, and I was invited along on the expedition to provide my matchless trap-disarming, treasure sensing, lock picking and witticism delivering skills.
I enjoyed myself immensely, and since green isn’t really a colour we see much of around here (unless it’s gelatinous gube related, sadly) I thought I would share the spoils of our victory with you and profile some od the glorious green goodies. Also alliteration. Since I was guest questing, I didn’t get to keep any of the green gems themselves, so this is also a wishlist! I was rewarded with gold, XP, and that warm fuzzy feeling you get from helping out a friend
(Just like with my January Wishlist, all the photos were taken from the manufacturers/creators/distributors websites, which are linked if you click on the title of the paragraph about a given item. Just to be clear, none of these links are affiliate!)
On with the glorious green!
This rogue went green with envy when the party pulled this out of the astral sea – I’ve been lusting after this lipstick for quite some time now (along with a whole pile of things from the Illamasqua line)!
Unsettling name, fabulous lipgloss. I just want to wear Apocalips with this over the top for ALL THE GREEN.
I’ve recently become a bit obsessed with the idea of making my own lipstick out of pigments/ eyeshadows and lip balm (thanks to Melissa’s genius in our recent collaboration!), so I’ve included a couple of M.A.C. pigments here that I think might be intriguing to work with. If you can’t access M.A.C., there are many things growing in dungeons that you can probably try grinding up, but your mileage may vary in terms of unwanted side effects like curses and/or face-melting.
Ditto the above, but for a more blue-based green option. I know perfectly well that teal is its own colour, but I usually see it more as a green than a blue.
British Racing Green has always been a favourite cart colour of mine – I know I’ll try to get something that line if we’re hiring one to take us and our loot back to town. The paladin prefers bright red with racing stripes, but he’s having a bit of a mid-life crisis at the moment…
No post is truly complete without some outright glitter in it somewhere.
I love the multidimensional colour in this green. It reminds me of some of the more complex gems we’ve brought back out of various dungeons and hoards over the years, and a couple of particularly lovely giant geodes that we had to climb our way through. Ah, good times…
These eye pencils are fantastic. This colour is a particularl lovely one. I almost managed to slip this into a pocket, but my conscience overcame my greed. Being a rogue is tough, you know?
I’m really interested in trying Sugarpill stuff at some point, and this loose shadow is on the list! Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be any in the adventure postings at the moment (i.e. it’s sold out), but I’m sure someone will locate a new dungeon with some in soon!
How ridiculously appropriate is the name of this eyeshadow? And how gorgeous is the colour?
Every time I see a swatch of this, my face twitches and my fingers itch to get it IMMEDIATELY. I was thrilled to see it pop up on this adventure, and hopefully I’ll get the chance to go after a gorgeous stick-shaped emerald of this for my own, soon!
I love Urban Decay eyeshadows, This is not really a secret (I can *hear* the Bard rolling her eyes right now). However, I do not yet posess this lovely deep green. It came to us, actually – washed right onboard during a rough moment in the journey, matching the colour of the ranger’s face at that moment perfectly!
13. One Last Thing… The astral sea is a beautiful sight, adventurers! Illamasqua’s nail polish in Perseid captures it perfectly
Right! Now that you’ve seen the spoils of our astral-seafaring adventures in the Emerald Empire, do you feel like wearing green? Have you tried any of these products (or sailed the astral seas)?
Until next time, fellow adventurers, don’t forget to check for traps!
