Buttercup Eyeshadow by Beauty from the Earth

Buttercup is a matte eyeshadow from Beauty from the Earth (BFTE) that I've become a bit fascinated with.  First time I used it, I figured it would be a good color for my brow because it's a nice bone/beige, right?  So, I proceed to apply and am surprised that it's definitely more true to it's name, as it has a distinct yellow tone.  It applies much more dark than it looks in the container - a color morpher.

I wouldn't usually use color all the way to my brow, but I went with it since I'd already applied Buttercup under my brow. 

I used a shimmer shadow on my inner eye and a darker shimmer brown along my lash line and in the crease, and I like the monochromatic look.
Buttercup is $6.50 for a regular size or $2 for a sample, which is the size shown above. 

Disclaimer:  I purchased this.


  1. Wow, that's crazy how it morphs once applied! Yellow eyeshadows tend to frighten me but this one looks great on you!

    1. BFTE has some really interesting shadows, I was swatching some orange ones yesterday. I think my warm complexion lets me get away with wearing yellows/oranges.
