VOLUSPA - Matte Eyeshadow
Historical and mythological depictions of vǫlur show that they were held in high esteem and believed to possess such powers that even the father of the gods, Odin himself, consulted a vǫlva to learn what the future had in store for the gods. Such an account is preserved in the Völuspá, which roughly translates to "Prophecy of the Vǫlva". In addition to the unnamed seeress (possibly identical with Heiðr) in the Vǫluspá, other examples of vǫlur in Norse literature include Gróa in Svipdagsmál, Þórbjǫrgr in the Saga of Erik the Red and Huld in Ynglinga saga. source
Voluspa is one of ten matte shades released in July 2019's Matte Saga 4. There will be a total of 5-6 Matte Saga collections inspired by women in Norse Mythology. Some of these shades will be close matches to Aromaleigh's former Pure Eyes Matte collection and listings will show what color is closest, for customer reference. All shades feature a brand new formula and deluxe sample size availability.
Color Description: Medium-deep gray with strong violet/mauve tones. Gray/Mauve/Heather. VEGAN. Eye use only. Closest to Pure Eyes Matte: None.
Shown swatched over BARE SKIN... the new formula performs very nicely with no need for primer, but should you choose to use a primer/base, the color will be more intense and saturated.
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, talc, carnauba wax, kaolin, ferric oxide, nylon-12, silica, magnesium stearate, zinc oxide, allantoin, isododecane, capric/caprylic triglyceride, dimethicone, hydrogenated polyisobutene May contain: manganese violet, ultramarines, chromium oxide, hydrated chromium oxide, red 40, carmine** (Carmine appears in the "May Contain" section on all product labels, but is only found in the shade "Verdandi")
