My Current Crush: Jane Cosmetics Olive Branch Eye Shadow

Today’s post is sweet and simple because, well, it’s simple…and sweet. Well, more savory but I digress.

I LOVE this shadow that Jane Cosmetics is churning out. I know I just talked about it a few weeks ago – but, y’all (she says in a whiny voice) – there are sooooo many beautiful, highly pigmented, long wearing shades!!!

My Current Crush though is Jane’s Olive Branch eye shadow ($8). This shimmering golden khaki-meets-olive is just what the chef ordered for any eye color. Green eyes? No-brainer beauty. Got blue or hazel? The gold in this will make ‘em pop. Brown? See pics below for evidence.

My Current Crush: Jane Cosmetics in Olive Branch ($8)

Yep, it’s love. And I have a feeling this is just the beginning of many a crush on Jane Cosmetics products.
I’m utterly smitten.

Smitten as a kitten.

Yes, I know I look like a goofball in this pic but look at that gorgeous smudged eyeliner this shadow gives us!!



BF Asks: What green-hued shadow do you swear by? 

My Current Crush: Jane Eyeshadow in Dawn – fitting, isn’t it?

Now, I know what you’re thinking.” She only has a crush on this Jane eyeshadow because of the name. Ugh. How narcissistic.” But au contraire, mon frère.

My Current Crush: Jane Cosmetics Shadow in Dawn…it's just a coincidence that it's my name, I swear!

I am crushing hard on this shadow because of its golden-coppery, highly-pigmented, long-wearing hue. This shimmering shade adds light and warmth to my eyes making them glow without looking too fiery (i.e., orange – yikes).

Jane Dawn (and me - Dawn) in the natural light of, um, afternoon. But wouldn't have it been cool if it WAS dawn?

Nope, My Current Crush: Jane Eyeshadow in Dawn ($8) is a high-performance powerhouse of a powder shadow that wears on for hours and makes your eyes pop. But the reason I love it most of all? Because at $8 a pop, you can get a bevy of these beautiful shadows without breaking the bank.

Another bonus? I love that Jane is all about giving back and supporting women. For more info about that, visit Friends of Jane.

So judge me, if you will. Go ahead and think that I just fancy this new shadow because they named it after me. Oh wait. They didn’t name it after me? Oh. Well, I still love it.

They didn't name it after me? Oh, well. I still love it!
