SKYLLA - EYESHADOW - DISCONTINUED
** Reformulated: All sizes of this shade as of the 5/23/15 restocking are a new and improved formula. This formula 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. As always, I recommend a regular cream base such as NYX eyeshadow base. Your mileage may vary with sticky glue type primers.
SKYLLA (Scylla, in Latin) was a monstrous sea goddess who haunted the rocks of certain narrow strait opposite the whirlpool daemon Kharybdis. Late classical writers say that she was once a beautiful nymph who was loved by the sea-god Glaukos. She has a jealous rival in the witch Kirke who used her magics to transform Skylla into a monster.
Her color is inspired by this depiction of her as a nymph, by Bartholomaus Spranger - "Glaucus and Scylla"
Skylla is a soft satin finish warm rose with a very strong yellow gold metallic highlight duochrome effect.
"OKEANIDES", which translates to "Daughters of Oceanus", is inspired by the Okeanid nymphs of Greek mythology. The daughters of Okeanos (Oceanus) were three thousand goddess Nymphs who presided over the sources of earth's water, ranging from rainclouds to subterranean springs and fountains. Each nymph is paired with the visual inspiration of a classical painting.
IMPORTANT APPLICATION TIP: These colors are all swatched over a light layer of cream eyeshadow primer. If you do not use a primer, you will not see the effects. A primer is necessary to bring the highlight/duochrome effects out of the satin (almost matte) base. Using these with no primer will result in very muted effects.
