"Victorian Oddities" is a mini collection this year for spooky season! It is Limited Edition.

MUMMY POWDER: A black base with color shifting shimmer and sparkle that goes from chartreuse to aqua and even copper to gold depending on the light conditions. These color effects are best seen in low, artificial light conditions.

Did you know that the Victorians had a bit of Egyptomania, and they held mummy unwrapping parties? They also believed that pulverizing mummies into a dust and consuming it as medicine had curing powers! This was called "Mummia". Here's an interesting article about it. What can I say other than "Gross!" Now I realize that Mummia was actually brown, but that's no fun for Halloween. So this shade is my creative interpretation.

*** Note, this eyeshadow contains no actual mummy powder!!!

APPLICATION TIP: These colors are all swatched over a light layer of NYX cream eyeshadow base in skintone. A base is helpful to intensify shifts and highlights for a more impactful look.
