To be honest, I'm not sure I'd ever been to the mall this early. The store clerks were putting the final touches on their window displays and slowly their gates began to slide open.
I hit up a few stores, but couldn't shake that feeling of unsatisfaction. I wanted something, but couldn't quite put my finger on it.
I looked at various shirts and jewelry, hit up the usual places, but left empty handed.
Finally. I arrived at Macy's and headed to MAC.
At this point, my eyeshadow palette had yet to be filled. I swatched as I always do, looking for the one shade that will pop out and say "take me home!!" Still, I wasn't sold.
I left a few swatches on my hand and walked out.
It wasn't until I had walked into the morning sun and took another glance that I noticed the stunner:
I could suddenly see the different ways to pair the glinting, golden green and I turned right around for it.
After that long introduction, here is the look I envisioned with Lucky Green.
