DRYOPE- eyeshadow - DISCONTINUED

 

$3.63 $7.26

Full size jar with sifter
** Reformulated: All sizes of this shade as of the 4/15 restocking are a new and improved formula. This formula 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. As always, I recommend a regular cream base such as NYX eyeshadow base. Your mileage may vary with sticky glue type primers.


This is DRYOPE, a beautiful fall-toned shade with color traveling duochrome effects. You definitely need to use an eyeshadow base to experience the shifts- even with the reformulation- it's the nature of the color traveling pigments. This color is a real chameleon- it shifts from chestnut to brownish green, while the duochrome overlay shifts from red to aqua as you move it underneath a light source. It will appear different under different lighting conditions. You can see some of the color shift (dependent on the angle of light passing through the pigment) in some of the swatches on the edges, but the only real way to see the shift in action is in person.

Dryope was the daughter of Dryops, king of Oeta ("oak-man"). She was metamorphosed into a black poplar. Her story is very sad. Apollo seduced her by a trick. Dryope had been accustomed to playing with the hamadryads of the woods on Mount Oeta. Apollo chased her, and in order to "win her favours", turned himself into a tortoise, of which the girls made a pet. When Dryope had the tortoise on her lap, he turned into a snake. She tried to flee, but he coiled around her legs and held her arms tightly.

Her color is inspired by the painting 'Nymphs and Satyr', by William-Adolphe Bouguereau.

Autumn 2014 welcomes the DRYADES collection at Aromaleigh... ten dramatic duochrome shades imbued with the tones of Fall's splendor. Dryads and Hamadryads were the Greek nymphs of the forests and trees. These colors were all inspired by specific Dryads or groups of Dryads, and incredible classic paintings portraying them.

IMPORTANT APPLICATION TIP: These colors are all swatched over a light layer of NYX cream eyeshadow base. A primer is necessary to reveal prominent highlight/duochrome effect. Using these with no primer will result in very muted effects. We don't recommend using these with glue/epoxy type of primers.
