Full size jar with sifter
EKHIDNA- part of the May 2015 Hydra Menagerie (This shade was included in sample form in the April Ephemera, as "Minthe"- it has undergone some tweaking and reformulation)

EKHIDNA was the Mother of the Hydra. Known as the Mother of all monsters, Ekhidna was half beautiful maiden and half serpent, with black eyes, fearful and bloodthirsty. She was the destruction of man, and as the consort of Typhon became mother of the Chimaera, of the many-headed dog Orthus, of the hundred-headed dragon who guarded the apples of the Hesperides, of the Colchian dragon, of the Sphinx, Cerberus, Scylla, Gorgon, the Lernaean Hydra, of the eagle which consumed the liver of Prometheus, and of the Nemean lion.


This shade is part of the Hydra Menagerie. The Menagerie is a new Aromaleigh project, where I'll be formulating other shades and products to go with each month's mythical creature. The Hydra Menagerie features three eyeshadow colors ("Hydra", "Ekhidna" and "Karkinos", and a purple blush ("Pharmakon").


Color Description: Minted green with golden undertones and a smattering of color-traveling violet to blue shimmer. Shown swatched over NYX cream eyeshadow base in skintone, photographed under a daylight lamp.

This formula is "semi loose" and features added ingredients for adhesion and wear, which also intensify the color shifts and make it easier to wear and blend over both bare skin and a variety of primers. Your eyeshadow will not arrive in "little balls" like some semi-loose formulas do, but it may be more difficult to get through the sifter holes. Sifters are easily removed. As always, I recommend a regular cream base such as NYX cream eyeshadow base. Your mileage may vary with sticky glue type primers.

Contains: mica, titanium dioxide, ferric oxide, ultramarines, hydrated chromium oxide, ferric ferrocyanide, tin oxide, silica, tin dioxide, calcium aluminum borosilicate, synthetic fluorphlogopite, blue 1, yellow 5, palmitic acid, isododecane, capric/caprylic triglyceride, dimethicone, hydrogenated polyisobutene
