Freydis is an wearable greyed mocha with a pale silvery sheen, and soft green/rose tonal effects. Glowing/Lustre finish.
* re-released version has a more intense shift and full sizes will have a custom Ignis Antiquita label.
As terrifying pedigrees go, Freydis had a pretty good one. A viking woman who was the illegitimate daughter of Erik the Red and half sister to Leif Erikson, Freydis and her husband set off on an expedition to Vinland (Nova Scotia). The Vikings and the Vinlanders had a tolerant existence of each other until the Vinlanders tried some of the Vikings delicious cheeses (which they'd never had before) and came down with a killer case of lactose intolerance. Thinking the Vikings were poisoning them, the Vinlanders attacked. The crew fled, leaving behind a heavily pregnant Freydis, who couldn't keep up with them. Picking up a sword, Freydis ripped her dress open showing her breasts, waved her sword and screamed at the startled Vinlanders, who faced with this clearly crazy pregnant woman, retreated.

IGNIS ANTIQUITA is a permanent collection of eyeshadows inspired by the amazing, fiery, passionate, strong women who have been largely forgotten in our history books, or had their histories revised due to the fact that they were women. Historically seen as the weaker sex, women were typically unable to contribute to politics, academia, science, or war.
The name "Ignis Antiquita" is beautifully representative of the sentiment behind this collection. It is Latin, and translates to English as "Ancient Fire" or "Fire of Old"
. Ignis is fire- as it relates to the fiery spirit and passion. Antiquita is old, ancient, time-honored, revered, primeval. The collection features women from ancient times, spanning many cultures and areas. While not everyone spoke Latin, it is undoubtedly one of the most widely spoken languages of the ancient world, which many current day languages are rooted in.APPLICATION TIPS:
These colors apply best over a light layer of primer, patted or brushed gently. The effects of the colors become muted if you use heavy primer or a strong glue/epoxy type of primer- or foiling. Best effects are achieved with a light layer of a primer such as Nyx or Two Faced eyeshadow primer. Repeated brushing or buffing will also mute the chromatic effects. You can use them without primer, but the chromatic effects will be more delicate and only visible in certain lighting.INGREDIENTS:
