In Greek mythology, Chrysaor (Greek: Χρυσάωρ, Khrusaōr, gen.: Χρυσάορος; English translation: "He who has a golden sword" (from χρυσός, "golden" and ἄορ, "sword")), the brother of the winged horse Pegasus, was often depicted as a young man, the son of Poseidon and Medusa. Chrysaor and Pegasus were not born until Perseus chopped off Medusa's head. Medusa, one of the three Gorgon sisters, the most beautiful, and the only mortal one, angered Athena due to being raped by Poseidon in the Temple of Athena (Ovid, Metamorphoses 4.770). As punishment, Athena turned her hair into snakes. Other Versions of the myth tell that Medusa was raped by Poseidon; Many Greek women believed that Athena was protecting Medusa by giving her the power to make any man who looked at her completely harmless. Some versions of the story state that Athena also cursed her so that a pair of golden wings grew from her head. Chrysaor and Pegasus were said to be born from the drops of Medusa's blood which fell in the sea; others say that they sprang from Medusa's neck as Perseus beheaded her, a "higher" birth (such as the birth of Athena from the head of Zeus). Chrysaor is said to have been king of Iberia. (source Wikipedia)Color Description: A liquid metallic warm yellow gold. Not just your typical gold... this one is rather mythical. Vegan. lip Safe.
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.
