The DRYADES are back… multichromatic eyeshadows inspired by the Greek nymphs of the trees and forests

DRYADES.1150x.TEMPLATEAutumn welcomes the DRYADES collection at Aromaleigh… ten dramatic duochrome shades imbued with the tones of Fall’s splendor. Dryads and Hamadryads were the Greek nymphs of the forests and trees. These colors were all inspired by specific Dryads or groups of Dryads, and incredible classic paintings portraying them.

I rephotographed the colors during the recent shop closing, and they turned out remarkedly improved being shot with my new camera. Look at those gorgeous color shifts and complexity!

Available seasonally! –> SHOP

This week’s 25% off featured sale item- the Greek Okeanid nymphs, which retire for the season on 9/1~!

The lovely Okeanides retire on September 1st! This will be their last time on the weekly sale before then, so now is the time to purchase.

“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. –> SHOP!

Newly reformulated and now available in the deluxe sample size!

** Reformulated: All sizes of this shade as of the 5/23 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.

When I started working on this collection last Spring, along with Cleolinda and Freddie of Tattle Crime, I had some friends who were surprised at the subject matter, because they thought it was horrific, or gruesome- not necessarily something that beautifully lends itself to cosmetics. After all, even recent advertisements for Hannibal Season 3 describe it as a “horror” show. But here’s the funny thing… I don’t see Hannibal as a horror show, nor as scary. I see it as a beautifully crafted piece of art full of metaphor and allegory, breathtaking imagery and color, and the music… don’t get me started on the perfection of the classical music chosen so wonderfully for each and every scene. The attention to detail of the entire production is just so immensely satisfying.
