Quick Question: Am I Pulling Off This Green Eye Makeup?

Perhaps my first time wearing it should've been with something more subtle than animal print?

Exactly two months ago, Madeline and I went to Duane Reade and bought makeup even though we receive it at the office on a daily basis, because we're reasonable like that.

Specifically, I bought a Sula Creme Shadow in a sale bin, which I hope doesn't mean Sula's on its way out, because I love that freakin' brand. Anyway, the color is called Secret Stash, which is pretty much exactly how I treated it, putting it away and not trying it until today.

It's a bright grass green, and I just wasn't sure how to wear it. But last night, I had a dream that I lost it while avoiding getting hit by trains in Oz (like, Wizard of), so I woke up with a renewed desire to wear it.

And now I am, along with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Freak, which is a perfect, iridescent match. I paired it with a light layer of my go-to glossy orange-red lipstick, L'Oreal Colour Riche Colour Caresse Lipstick in Fiery Veil, for a daytime-friendly (read: lazy, rushed and not even close) version of Dior's Fall 2012 runway makeup look.

Although the Quick Question should be "What's your favorite lip exfoliator, because I clearly need a better one?" I decided to go with: Am I pulling off this green eye makeup? How would you do it differently?
