Heloderma suspectum, a multipurpose contour powder that can also be used as a cheek color or matte eyeshadow. From the Halloween 2015 Fatalis collection.

Inspired by the venemous Gila monster, this is a warm greyed buff powder. Shown moderate application over bare skin in main swatch grid panel, and applied over NYX cream eye base in skintone, in the top right hand corner.
Heloderma, meaning "studded skin" and suspectum, meaning "suspect". The Gila monster (Heloderma suspectum) is the only venomous lizard native to the United States, but its reputation as a cold-blooded man-killer (in part triggered by the “monster” label) is as overblown as that of most Old West gunfighters. The shy and slow nocturnal creature, which still inhabits the Gila River valley in Arizona and New Mexico among other places in the Southwest, has been the source of endless folklore and exaggerated claims, not unlike Billy the Kid and Wyatt Earp. As with most other legendary Western characters, it is interesting to separate Gila monster myths from Gila monster facts. Its bite is always fatal (myth). When it bites, it will not let go until sundown or until it thunders (myth). It lacks an anal opening and thus has no means of excretion except by regurgitation, which leads to a fermentation of waste material on its teeth and a much more dangerous bite (myth). It has poisonous breath (myth). As its venom glands are in its lower jaw, it must flip onto its back when biting to introduce the venom (partial myth—while the venom is produced in glands in its lower jaw, a Gila monster can work venom into a wound by chewing).
