Just received the e/s Herb in my latest Cherry Culture order. It's a very nice subdued olive green. I've worn this a couple of times and I really like it. Because I have hazel eyes with a lot of olive green in them, I feel like this actually looks rather neutral on me. Nice amount of shimmer. Not over the top at all IMHO. Very nice for daytime. It compliments my eye color without …Read more

This is a very good eyeshadow. Very pigmented, soft and blendable. And the color is gorgeous! As some people has noted before, it is very similar to Milani's Antique Gold, but it's also similar to Essence's Olive Garden. The three of them are extremely look alike yet still different. Antique Gold is much more bronze. Herb is more dark and green with a slight browny tint. Olive …Read more

Beautiful color- it's a elegant mixture forest green and bronze with a golden sheen. It's great to wear day time and night time. The warm color looks very pretty on olive/Asian skin. I highly recommend this color!

A warm tone khaki green with gold/bronze shimmer and a silky smooth texture.
This is a darker, greener version of nyx antique gold.
I like to wear this shade over black eyeliner, for a slight smokey look, paired with a neutral color as a wash.

I put yes as a repurchase for the eye shadow but I've never had to repurchase the same color before because they last my forever. I don't use that much.

This color is really lovely and I thought this blended very well with gold. I'm quickly becoming a fan of NYX!

NYX eyeshadow in Herb is a pretty shimmery olive green/snakeskin color. I think the texture of the eyeshadow is pretty smooth and really makes brown eyes stand out. I don't think the shimmer is overpowering and for the price, I would definitely repurchase this product!

I realllyy like NYX single eyeshadow. I have yet to buy one I don't like. (I have 4 so far and plan on getting more) Herb is a pea type green. Some same it's a dupe for a MAC eyeshadow. I forget the name. I don't own MAC (except like 2 pigments) so I couldn't tell you. I do like the color. The consistency is nice. The packaging is nice. It's very pigmented. You don't …Read more

I got the chrome version for this. When I first swatched it on the store it look like a gorgeous antique gold with hints of green in it. I purchased it right away, since I was looking for a gold e/s and the green didn't bother me as it compliments my eye colour. But then I put it on my lid, and...No matter what I pair it with, looks like a cheap, old lady green on me. I have it just laying …Read more

For me, NYX single shadows are kinda hit and miss. I just bought Morocco which is a deep gorgeous purple when swatched on my arm, but when I applied it yesterday it was a little "patchy" and a bit disappointing tho I wound up with a nice look, but I'll still give it another chance. Anyway--onto this gorgeous HERB shadow. It's a beautiful army "OD Green" …Read more

Herb is an almost identical dupe for UD chains e/s, except chains has a slightly more golden sheen to it. I swatched them side by side and had to look hard to see the difference. I like it, but I already own chains so up for swap this goes.
