Medousa (Medusa) was a Gorgon, one of three daughters of Phorkys and Keto.
In a late version of the Medusa myth, related by the Roman poet Ovid (Metamorphoses 4.770), Medusa was originally a ravishingly beautiful maiden, “the jealous aspiration of many suitors,” but because Poseidon had raped her in Athena’s temple, the enraged Athena transformed Medusa’s beautiful hair to serpents and made her face so terrible to behold that the mere sight of it would turn onlookers to stone. In Ovid’s telling, Perseus describes Medusa’s punishment by Minerva (Athena) as just and well earned.
Ordering for the Medusa Menagerie opens on Tuesday, July 28th at 12 PM (Noon) EST! The collection is inspired by the story of Medusa and includes four eyeshadows (Medousa, Sthenno, Euryale, Khrysaor), a lipgloss (Gorgon), a fragrance from Alchimia Apothecary (Temple of Athena), a highlighter (Pegasos) and a contour powder (Amphisbaena).
The lipgloss and fragrance are limited quantities!
Eyeshadow shades from July’s Ephemera sub box go on sale on August 1st!
Hopefully there will be some blog posts to share with you by then, with swatches and reviews of the colors, but for now I have these swatch grids with photos by Emily of Artistic Shadows.
These are extras, so quantities are limited.
Time is running out to make purchases for the ANTHOUSAI Greek flower nymph collection! This gorgeous seasonal collection retires on August 1 2015 and will return for Spring 2016!
SERPENS is a permanent eyeshadow collection inspired by Dragon lore and mythology from all around the world. We typically associate dragons with European and Norse mythology, forgetting that dragons and serpents are found in the myths of every continent and culture.
Serpens is my creative response to many requests to do a “Game of Thrones” inspired collection. While I love doing an occasional pop culture collection, my true love is history and mythology. This collection is representative of that, and I hope it fills your dragon void…
** This collection is now available in the deluxe sample size!
* Reformulated: All sizes of this shade as of the July 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.
The new website went live several hours ago– quite a lot earlier than expected for the DNS to take effect. Have you tried it out yet? So far it’s running smoothly and a few orders have even come in! You can still access your account (order history and wishlists) on the old server. To do this, you need to go here: http://126.96.36.199 and then log in to your account. This site is closed for ordering, so if you attempt to order you won’t be able to!
Feel free to point your browser to aromaleighcosmetics.com and explore the new site, set up a new account and start building your wishlists.
I deeply appreciate your patience during the last two weeks. It has been rough, and I know that it is times like these where you can lose faith in a merchant. Security breaches are scary, and for that reason I felt that moving to a completely new platform was the smartest thing I could do.
To say THANK YOU a thousand times over, I am offering a Gift With Purchase (GWP) for the next two weeks. It’s a beautiful muted purple with borealis shimmer called “Grazie Mille” (literally, “thousand thanks” or “many thanks” in Italian). Orders of $15 and up placed on the new site will receive a deluxe sample size of this beautiful color from now through July 20th. Sneak peek of that shade coming later today.
Also… Reduced pricing is handled differently on the new site than on the old site. I have a 25% off discount applied to this week’s featured products (Ignis Antiquita rouges and Blade Runner eyeshadows), as well as to the “Going Going Gone” products- Brilliant Deductions Eyes, Bloom, and old COTMS. The discount shows up IN CART, not on the product page. So this will take some getting used to!
It’s back in stock… the lipgloss that sold out like hotcakes, twice!
