I am always on a hunt for a good green eyeshadow that doesn't have a yellow or gold undertone as well as a GOOD CHOCOLATE BROWN eye shadow/glitter.  I made a few purchases from Gorgeous Cosmetics and was very happy with Brown and Green eye shadows I picked.  

I've been wanting to use my 'Coco' pigment so I thought it was time to put it to work creating a Valentine's Day look.
