X - LEIURUS QUINQUESTRIATUS - DISCONTINUED
This product is discontinued and is 35% OFF with Coupon Code CLEARANCE35. Please see the Clearance section for further details and additional clearance eyeshadows from the FATALIS and INSECTARIUM collections.
By popular request, I have made the Fatalis collection permanent as of 4/21/16!
This premium eyeshadow collection features truly unique, color traveling pigments that display a strong and vibrant color shift under artificial light sources. When they are in between two different light sources, you will be able to see the strongest multiple color transmission. Under direct sunlight or diffused artificial light, the effects are muted or washed out, and you will only see a slight and subtle color shift. They have a highly reflective/chrome finish, and they show the most saturated color effects and color travel when exposed to artificial lighting and especially mixed lighting of different color temperatures, much like the beautiful Alexandrite gemstone exhibits trichroism, reflecting and absorbing light differently in different directions and color temperatures.
As the pigments used in this collection are extremely costly and used as the highest percentage in the formulas (they are six times the cost of the typical duochrome/interference pigment), I have adjusted prices/sizing accordingly. Basically, you will find that these are twice the cost of other Aromaleigh eyeshadows. Example: a regular Aromaleigh sample is 1/8 tsp in a baggie for $1.25. In Fatalis, you get 1/16th tsp in a baggie for the same price of $1.25)
Recommended application for these is over a cream eyeshadow base (NYX cream eyeshadow base is my go-to!). Sticky or glue bases may work well for you, but I personally don't use these or test/swatch my products with them. With all color shifting/duochrome shades, I urge you to use a flat taklon brush or other suitable tool to flatten and align the color shifting component of the eyeshadow. This will create a more uniform and reflective surface.
Leirus quinquestriatus, commonly known as the Deathstalker scorpion. From the Halloween 2015 FATALIS collection.
"The deathstalker (Leiurus quinquestriatus), is a species of scorpion, a member of the Buthidae family. It is also known as the Israeli yellow scorpion, Palestine yellow scorpion, Omdurman scorpion, Naqab desert scorpionand many other colloquial names, which generally originate from the commercial captive trade of the animal. To eliminate confusion, especially important with potentially dangerous species, the scientific name is normally used to refer to them. The name Leiurus quinquestriatus roughly translates into English as "five-striped smooth-tail". The deathstalker is regarded as the most dangerous species of scorpion. Its venom is a powerful mixture ofneurotoxins, with a low lethal dose. While a sting from this scorpion is extraordinarily painful, it normally would not kill a healthy adult human; young children, the elderly, or infirm (such as those with a heart condition and those who are allergic) are at much greater risk.

Color Description: This type of scorpion is a distinctive warm greenish yellow, and did you know that all scorpions glow a teal/blue in ultraviolet light? This shade has a base that is a smokey warm green with a golden glow, and interference shift that goes gold-chartreuse-green-teal - depending on lighting conditions and angles in which you view. Product photographs here at Aromaleigh appear more "sparkly" than these colors are in real life. This is a photographic technique used to better display hard to capture color shifts, by purposefully using shallow focus. In real life these shadows, when used with a base, obtain a smooth and almost metallic color-shifting appearance.
Sizes available- Due to the extreme high cost of the specialty pigments used, I have adjusted sizing to be half the amount for the same price. For example- a regular Aromaleigh sample is 1/8 tsp in a baggie for $1.25. In Fatalis, you get 1/16th tsp in a baggie for the same price of $1.25)
