Tomorrow morning the extras from last month’s exclusive William Blake/Red Dragon/Hannibal inspired box- will be available for purchase! Mark the time 9 AM EST. I apologize for the early hour, but I will be away all day Sunday so was unable to put them up later in the day.
Get all the details, inspiration, and backstory about the collection and colors from this amazing writeup from Cleolinda Jones. She did an incredible job with this, so definitely check it out!
Due to excitement about the Dragon’s Kiss lipgloss, I went ahead and made two more batches, so there are 42 units available. If by chance these sell out, I will put up a pre-order. If need to reach at least 14 units in a preorder to make a single batch. More details on that if the need arises.
There are no extras of the fragrance, “Draconis”, but if enough people express interest in purchasing a bottle of the scent, I will work out details with Alchimia Apothecary to stock some. If you are interested, please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org
There *may* be some extra complete boxes available, as I calculate if all purchasers have received their boxes. I always create extras to anticipate if there are any complete losses or damages. As not all international customers have received theirs, I can’t release all the extra boxes into inventory tomorrow.

[PSA] Hannibal fans! Ordering for the ultra-exclusive Hannibal “Primavera” box, inspired by the first half of Hannibal season three… opens on Monday 8/17 at 3 PM EST. There are 50 slots available for this limited edition box.
The concept of the box runs very deep and explores a broad range of themes as exemplified through the characters and the ever-present Botticelli painting, “Primavera” in the first half of the season. I studied this painting extensively while earning my Master of Fine Arts and have also spent my own fair share of time sitting in front of it, in the Uffizi. This collection is very personal to me not just in my love of everything Hannibal, but also Italy, Florence, fine art and mythology. I’ve been collaborating with @Cleolinda and @Tattle_crime and I promise you a collection with very intense meta!
Right now the box is slated to contain 3 mini eyeshadows, a mini rouge, a mini highlighter, an Aromaleigh nourishing colour creme (yes, that’s a lip product!), and a custom fragrance by Alchimia Apothecary. That’s a retail value of $49.75, not including all of the special extras that go into giving this box a beautiful and artistic conceptual presentation. I like to see my small collections as works of art, each one completely assembled by hand, by me.
There are 50 slots available, and the box price is $48 plus shipping. Orders placed on 8/17 should include only this box- no other items. This is because your order represents a special order for this item, which will ship on OCTOBER 1. There is a limit of one box per customer, and the box can ship internationally- just choose your country and ship option when you check out.
For obvious reasons, this week’s featured product is the 30 shade “This is my Design” collection (SHOP). These shades are available in sample and full size (no deluxe sample jars available at this time for this set). Will you be watching this evening?!?
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.
