I seem to have a thing for Turquoise and Green Eyeliners. I don't know why I love them so much, I just think they are so easy to wear. Maybe not so much now that the hair colour has changed, but sometimes you just need a pop of colour and these are always the shades I go to! I picked up MAC Minted a few weeks ago, for my mum actually (she loves a bit of green too!) but as always I nipped in there to try it first.
I must admit I prefer MAC's Eye Kohl's to their Technakohl range. These seem to come across a lot softer without needing any force. I am a bit of a Hulk sometimes and tend to push the Technakohl's a little too hard so they end up crumbling beneath my force ha. These simply glide along the skin, which works better for my Hulk-like strength.
Minted itself is a cute, metallic teal colour, very similar to this Maybelline Chromatics shade. I'm not too sure on the name, as I would say that this is leans more toward a darker Green than Mint. Names aside, it applies and blends like an absolute dream, with no dragging at all. I applied this in the morning and it lasted a whole day without budging. A small amount transferred onto the top of my eyelid ever so slightly, where I had been blinking, but this didn't fade anywhere else at all.
In terms of value, these are a little on the pricey side at £14.00. There are a few cheaper brands that could definitely give these a run for their money in terms of Green shades. Although, I don't know how they would quite compare with staying power and vibrancy.
This definitely gave me the pop of colour that I needed. It's just a shame I have had to give this back to my mum already!
