Color Description: smooth metallic, heavenly blue-green. Contains metallic pigment.

Aether was the primordial god of light and the bright, blue ether of the heavens. His mists filled the space between the solid dome of the sky and the transparent mists of the earth-bound air. In the evening his mother Nyx drew her dark veil across the sky, obscuring the ether and bringing night. In the morn his sister and wife Hemera dispersed night's mist to reveal the shining blue ether of day. (source

About the Collection: Hypnos: God of Sleep is the latest offering of the Mythos series, and includes eyeshadows, cheek/face products and lip products. Hypnos was the ancient Greek personification of sleep, and was the son of Nyx and twin brother of Thanatos. In Greek myth, he is described as living in the underworld- in a dark, musty cave through which flowed the waters of Lethe, the river of forgetfulness. Hypnos lay on his soft couch, surrounded by his many sons (the Oneroi), who were the bringers of dreams. The entrance to his cave was said to be surrounded by various soporific plants and herbs, which he used to bring sleep.
