Darker and more serious than the Appletini, this olive green eyeshadow will have you looking sophisticated, yet mysterious. The question is one olive or two?
The Bottom Line:
Matte olive green

Heavenly green Review by Rikki
This is literally the perfect green. It can do it all - lid color, outer v, crease, or eyeliner. Blends like a dream, which I love as many of the highly pigmented colors can be tricky to blend. I have green eyes and this color literally makes my eyes look like emeralds. I cannot rave enough. FYI - if you use this color all over the lid and add ducochrome Voltage over the inner third it makes the most spectacular eye I have ever had the pleasure of wearing. So many compliments.

Not my favorite Review by Megan
This shade looks amazing in the swatches, but on the skin it's a different story. It's not bad, but honestly other MUG shadows have spoiled me so much that it looks bad if that makes sense. This shade in particular was on the patchy side (with primer). Kind of reminded me of MAC matte shadows which like I said aren't bad but once you try a variety of MUG shadows, they make other good shades look bad. Hopefully that made sense. Not trying to be mean! (Posted on 5/19/15)
I Wanted to Love You... Review by Shannon
I love green. I use them for eyeliner and as a lid color. This color was just so beautiful on the sight and all the comments about it were so good... but when I got it (the only one out of the seven that I bought in the order I had a problem with, I might add), it didn't swatch right. When I put it on my eye it didn't go on smoothly like the others did and it was patchy. :( I was so disappointed. I wanted to love this color. Even as a liner I had trouble. I'm sorry. I really wanted to love this one. I adore the others that I got. (Jester (foiled), pixi dust, shimmermint, yellow brick road, lemon drop, and peach smoothie) (Posted on 3/11/15)

In love Review by Lydia
I'm a green lover. And this color is really special. Matte, pigmented, easy to blend. It's a basic color to have. (Posted on 5/24/14)
relieved Review by dani
I broke a MAC limited edition shadow (Jade?) recently, it was matte I tried to press it back together, then I dropped it again, it was a lost cause, this shade is even more of an intense green than the MAC one I had, I was so relieved when I swatched it, I felt whole again ;) (Posted on 3/3/14)
it is nice Review by danielle
This shadow is a beautiful matte Olive green, I did think it would be deeper and more intense but in person it is a tad lighter and more Olive, now that I have accepted that I do love it, I hope they come out with a more intense matte green shade. The swatch is off... it looks so much greener than it is in person, be mindful of that when choosing a shade. (Posted on 2/19/14)
Matte Green Heaven! Review by MusicalMoodRing
This is the matte green I've been looking for. It's highly pigmented and goes on smooth. It looks great on all skin tone. I'm NW45 and it shows up beautifully. Thank you for this green! I only purchased 3 eyeshadows so far and none of them are disappointing at all. I plan on buying way more. You've got a customer for life. (Posted on 11/6/12)
olives with my drink Review by Tania
I bought this to mix it with the appletini and what a perfect combination is, it's not that I think it won't work well with others, on the contrary, it's a beautiful shade on it's own, nothing like I own, I'm very happy I purchased it. (Posted on 6/7/12)

Close but no cigar Review by Elizabeth
This color is beautiful! It is very hard to find a great matte green especially for my NC43 skin. I loved the color and the payoff was great. BUT!!! It creased on me within the hour. I used my Too Faced shadow insurance, and even tried it over UDPP, still creased. I ordered a bunch of eyeshadows and this was a HUGE disappointment. If this was MAC I would have returned it!

Delicious Review by Leslie
Feeling a little "dirty"? Then this is the eyeshadow for you. With it's true matte olive green color you can feel anyway you want without breaking any of the rules/ I love using this in the outer v or under the eye. The color is simply delicious! (Posted on 1/26/12)
FINALLY - a matte green! Review by Susen
I don't know why it's SO hard to find matte green, purple and blue eye shadows - or why the range of matte eyeshadows is always so limited.
But, I am so happy I found MUG's Dirty Martini!!! It's matte, it's a wonderful shade of rich, olive green, it goes on smoothly, blends beautifully, has great colour payoff and lasts all day and well into the night.
An absolutely sumptuous, matte, true olive-green - at long last. (Posted on 1/14/12)
Finally a matte olive that is affordable! Review by Jailyn
I have so many olive eye-shadows because apparently no company has a true matte olive. This is a true matte olive, it has no shimmer, no sheen, no specks of glitter and its exactly what I have been searching for. I'm glad my search is over. Thanks Makeup Geek (Posted on 1/10/12)
