The Crèvecœur is a rare breed of chicken originating in France, black in color with beautiful green and purple iridescence in the sun. It is named after the town of Crèvecœur in Normandy, and is one of the oldest French chicken breeds. Most black chickens have this effect to their feathers, but none of them have a name which means “broken heart” in French!

Color Description: A pale/medium heathered green with a strong purple shift. Photographed under a daylight lamp, swatched over NYX cream eyeshadow base in skintone.

About the Collection: From the "Birds of a Feather" collection. This is a permanent collection inspired by all things chicken!

There are twelve shades in this collection- ten a lustrous and glowy, shifting shades. Two are eye-safe borosilicate-based glitter blends. The name "Birds of a Feather" was suggested by Aradia Diane Willard. I think it's perfect! There was a lovely teal eyeshadow shade of the same name from a 2012 collection, so I'm borrowing it for this.

APPLICATION TIP: These colors are all swatched over a light layer of NYX cream eyeshadow base in skintone. A base is necessary to bring the highlight/duochrome effects portrayed in the swatch photos. If you wear them without base, you won't see as strong of a color shift. A stronger effect can be achieved by using a sticky base, but I don't photograph my swatches over a sticky base.

All colors other than COCHIN are vegan. The shade Cochin contains carmine.

Ingredients: mica, titanium dioxide, ferric oxide, carnauba wax, tin oxide, tin dioxide, magnesium stearate, kaolin, silica, isododecane, hydrogenated polyisobutene, capric/caprylic triglyceride, dimethicone May contain: calcium aluminum borosilicate, carmine, ferric ferrocyanide
