KARKINOS, the crab: part of the May 2015 Hydra Menagerie

KARKINOS (or Carcinus) was a giant crab which assisted the nine-headed serpent Hydra in its battle with Herakles at Lerna. The hero crushed it beneath his foot, but as a reward for its service, it was placed amongst the stars as the Constellation Cancer by Hera. Karkinos is the symbol for the zodiac sign of Cancer.

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: Karkinos is a deep metallic red, with brilliant green and violet sparks. 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, tin oxide, silica, tin dioxide, silica, bronze/copper powder, synthetic fluorphlogopite, calcium aluminum borosilicate, red 40, magnesium stearate, isododecane, capric/caprylic triglyceride, dimethicone, hydrogenated polyisobutene
