July’s Goddess is DIANA, a gorgeous and luminous highlighter!

DIANA.ARTJuly’s Goddess is Diana. It’s a pale gold highlighter with a soft blue lustre, requested last year by Karissa. I did an Artemis eyeshadow many years ago back in 2009, and did a Goddess kit named after Artemis even further back in 2002, so opted for the Roman version of the Goddess for this month.
From Goddess Guide:

“Diana was the Goddess of the hunt and wild animals. She later took over from Luna as the Roman Goddess of the moon. Despite having no children of her own she is also considered to be a fertility Goddess, worshiped by woman trying to get pregnant and those who wish for an easy labour. Her trinity of gods included Egeria the water nymph and Virvius the woodland God. Originally she was Queen of the open sky and possible a sun Goddess in addition to being a moon Goddess as her name means light or bright sky. She is also known as “Lady of the beasts.” Men fought to the death to for the honour of becoming one of her priests. Origins and Genealogy: Her parents were Jupiter and Latona and she had a twin brother, Apollo. In the Pagan tradition she is also said to have had a daughter Aradia who became queen of the witches.”


The artwork for the jar tops is a gorgeous painting by Maria Cosway, depicting Georgiana Spencer Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire, as Diana (although some sources say Cynthia, from the Faerie Queen- she is wearing Diana’s distinctive crescent tiara). Georgiana Cavendish was the great-great-great-great-aunt of Diana, Princess of Wales. If you want to read about some fascinating women, I suggest that you google both Maria Cosway and Georgiana- I really enjoyed learning about them. 🙂


This highlighter is shown lightly over eye base (bottom) and buffed out (top right corner). It can be worn on eyes or face, and is very fine-milled and lustrous while still being work friendly!

June’s Goddess of the Month is IXCHEL

Ixchel is June’s Goddess of the month, another shade in the new monthly Goddess series which will feature a specially curated cheek or face product each month. Would you like to suggest a Goddess? You can do so here!

June’s Goddess of the Month is IXCHEL, suggested by Karolina Valikova and available on June 1st. Her request for a highlighter shade is “I would imagine her as a highlighter. Pale lavender with gold shift/glow. Somehow to make these two colours equally visible and not let one overpower the other. No glitter or sparkles. Just a beautiful smooth creamy-like glowy texture.”

 From Goddess Gift.com: “As an ancient fertility goddess, Ix-Chel was responsible for sending rain to nourish the crops. When fulfilling that function she was called “Lady Rainbow”. She helped insure fertility by overturning her sacred womb jar so that the waters would flow.

Though sometimes depicted as a goddess of catastrophe (the woman who stands by as the world floods), many of her myths show her in a more benevolent light—as a goddess who refused to become a victim of oppression. This was a woman who, when faced with adversity, took charge of her life and turned it around!

Ix-Chel was almost too beautiful, this girl with opalescent skin who sat in the skies brushing her shimmering hair for hours on end. All the gods were captivated by her. All but one, that is. Kinich Ahau, the Sun God, seemed immune to Ix-Chel’s charms. Yet he was the only one she really ever wanted. For years she had longed for him as she watched him glide across the sky in all his golden splendor.

But the more Ix-Chel followed him around, the worse the weather on earth became. As she chased after him the tides would rise, creating floods that inundated the fields and caused the crops to die. So enamored was she, that Ix-Chel did not even notice the havoc she was causing.

Like many moon goddesses Ix-Chel was a fine weaver, and it was the beautiful cloth she wove that finally captured Kinich Ahau’s attention. Soon they had become lovers.”

September’s Goddess is ASTRAEA, the celestial virgin and goddess of justice associated with the astrological sign of Virgo…

ASTRAEA.1150x.TEMPLATE“The Age Of Gold was the first age of the world, without hardship or toil for those who dwelt on Earth, and was without crime. The most recent age of the world, full of troubles and evils, is called The Age of Iron, but perhaps it would be better to call it the Second Age of Gold, for many of its troubles began when gold first tempted humankind to wickedness and war. through the Ages of Gold, Silver and Bronze, Astraea – the goddess of justice – still remain on Earth, but when the Age Of Iron began, she found she could stay here no longer. Now she shines down from the sky as the constellation Virgo, the virgin.”

AVAILABLE 9/1!

September is my favorite month of the year, so I wanted to choose a Goddess associated with my astrological sign, Virgo. This month’s Goddess product is something a uniquely soft blue-grey toned highlight powder with a celestial gold shift and shimmer. I think it would work great for strobing, but of course, you can use it as a highlighter or an eyeshadow, also. Those with pale skintones or a penchant for more dramatic looks might even find it can be used as a couture blush shade, or a delicate contour tone.

The uncharacteristic shade of the powder might look a bit risky in the jar, but you might be surprised at it’s ethereal appearance on the skin. The color inspiration for Astraea is inspired by the paintings of Fernando Gallego, a Spanish artist who is believed to have painted the Cielo de Salamanca– an exquisite domed ceiling painted with mixed media painted with oil and tempera and originally overlaid with gold stars plaster relief- depicting the signs of the Zodiac.

Try a sample or mini jar of this unusual powder and see for yourself! Mini and full size jars depict Fernando Gallego’s Virgo/Astraea on the labels. 

Available tomorrow morning on 9/1 when the shop reopens!

Marie Antoinette Ephemera extras go on sale September 1!

August’s Marie Antoinette Ephemera extras will be available for purchase on September 1st!

From the August box insert:

August’s Ephemera is inspired by Marie Antoinette, and the 80’s vibe of Sofia Coppola’s film of the same name.

The beautiful label art by Glucose Girl/Miranda Sharp reflects an 80’s inspired Marie, so I thought it would be fun for this month’s box colors to follow in suit. As you know, this is the last Ephemera box, so I’d like to take the time to personally thank you for being a subscriber. While Ephemera is ending, my creativity is not. I will be bringing you many exciting things in the future!

While watching Coppola’s film, I was most aesthetically drawn to the depictions of Marie in her youth, before the extravagance of court life weighed down her radiant natural beauty. As such, the shades in this box are soft and wearable, despite the fact that they may be outside of your comfort zone.

Try using L’Autrichienne as an eyeliner, or an all-over wash of color with Dauphine or Versailles applied over the top. You’ll no longer have straight aqua, but a beautiful and dimensional color shift that reflects the colorful complexity of Versailles. Maria Antonia is a “blush glow”. On pale skintones, an easy to wear blush. On deeper skintones, better as a highlighter.

Aromaleigh LUMINESCE DIVINE softly glowing Mineral Finishing Powder is back!

aromaleighinc_2253_97142222

Luminesce Divine is a neutral and translucent, sheer, loose mineral cosmetic finishing powder that gives your skin more of a dewy glow than our very gentle, subtly glowing “Illuminata” but not as much as our “Opaline” powders, which are typically used as highlighting or spot-treatments for certain areas of the face.

Luminesce Divine is designed for those who adore Aromaleigh’s matte mineral foundation powders (Gossamer/Dewdrop/Pashmina), but would love a finishing powder that offers them some of the glowy or dewy look that many of the commercially available mineral cosmetic foundation powders provide. In particular, world-reknowned mineral makeup brand Bare Escentuals’ regular formula.

Luminesce Divine is intended for all-over use as a finishing powder and is best applied with a large, fluffy brush. It is available in three translucent tones, Cherub, Angel and Seraph (from lightest to darkest).

A light hand is all that is needed with Luminesce Divine, as too much product can actually over-accentuate pores or fine lines. The tiniest amount, delicately whisked over your face after foundation application will leave your face lit from within and kissed by an angel…

Ingredients: Sericite mica (CI 77019), Mica (CI 77019), Titanium dioxide (CI 77891), Zinc Oxide, Silica (Silicon dioxide), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499)
