Emerald needs no description in terms of color, but it's certainly a shade that will take your breath away. It applies creamy, sets as a metallic shadow and stays the day. This is perfect to use within an eye look as a base or as a liner.
Emerald is no longer available on it's own on the website, but it's available in the Color of the Year Collection($68.00) which is actually a really good deal if you're looking into getting several pieces that work well together.
Below isn't technically an eye look, but I just wanted to show how beautiful, pigmented and vibrant this shade shows up on the eye. (Applied with a firm brush).
SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE Emerald Color Cube Lid Stain retails for $16.00 and is available exclusively at Sephora. Check your local store for availability.
