RAVENSTAG EYESHADOW: A THING AROMALEIGH MADE FOR US
A very rich and chromatic black, with vivid duochrome effects that range from chartreuse to green to teal to blue. It also has brilliant violet sparks in it. It is exceptionally pigmented, and the duochrome effect is extremely strong if you foil this color/apply it wet.
First, a light smear across my wrist; you can see the iridescence and sparkles on the darker base.
Then, four swatches on the back of my hand, under the full spectrum lamp. Okay, I usually just wear eyeshadow without primer because I
am lazylike a softer effect. But, FOR SCIENCE, I used dabs of Benefit’s Stay Don’t Stray (top left), Urban Decay’s Sin Primer Potion (top right), and Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance (bottom left), and then bare skin on the bottom right. (Man, I knew those giftset mini sizes would come in handy one day.) For the record, the duochrome was the strongest and most solid over the Benefit primer. You can kind of see a fine purple sparkle in the picture on the left, but I can’t get half the effect to show up on camera. Like, it’s twinkly and it’s shiny and it’s coal black and it’s a pewter-purple-green-teal color? With primer, there really is a very strong raven’s-wing iridescence, and that’s without foiling it. Applied dry without primer, more of the black base comes out, so it would look smokier that way. Ironically, I’m completely helpless when it comes to dark makeup—I suggested this because I felt that a Ravenstag eyeshadow needed to exist whether I could wear it or not. So I’m going to try to find a lighter complementary color, something matte or low-shimmer, and blend this in at the crease or outer corner. If you do wear dark eyeshadow—seriously, someone needs to try this on and take a picture of how it looks. It is everything we hoped and dreamed it would be.
Meanwhile! MORE HANNIBAL-INSPIRED COLORS ON THE WAY. I don’t know how many or which ones, but Freddie and I deluged Kristen with suggestions, and she’s going to put a new one up each Friday. So keep an eye out for that.
"We don’t know what nightmares lie coiled beneath Will’s pillow."
In NBC’s “Hannibal”, protagonist Will Graham sometimes sees a a stag, covered in raven’s feathers in his dreams. This iconic animal has come to be known as the “Ravenstag”.
This color was created at the suggestion of Cleolinda Jones and Freddie Lounds, who provided the idea, concept and quote for this gorgeous shade. Thank you for your inspiration! Our formulator was extremely excited to create a color that represented the complex iridescent effects found in the feathers of ravens and crows, and she jumped at the opportunity to work on this!

WARNING - PLEASE READ IF YOU HAVE A PEANUT ALLERGY AND LIKE TO SHMEAR MAKEUP ON YOUR SKIN TO MAKE YOU LOOK AS FLAWLESS AS YOUR PERSONALITY
I am one such an individual, and last night I was super pumped to try this concealer. Out of curiosity I read the ingredients and saw something called arachidyl behenate.
Anything with the root “arachi” such as “arachis oil” is probably peanut related. And, sure enough, I did some research and arachidyl behenate is peanut-derived. Which is the story of how I nearly smushed a deadly food allergen into my skin.
There’s a report here from last year that seems to indicate that some food allergens are neutralized when processed for cosmetics, but I’m not sure that applies for peanuts. And at any rate, they did indicate there was still a risk of a reaction if such proteins weren’t processed properly.
Now, I’m gonna say it outright - I’m not one hundred percent sure that a heavily processed peanut-derived chemical such as arachidyl behenate will cause a reaction. I’ve worn a lot of makeup over the years without checking the ingredients, so I could have easily used a product containing it without knowing. Still, better safe than sorry.
Alternate names for peanut products (anything with the prefix “arachi-” should be considered suspect):
beer nuts, earth nuts, goobers, groundnuts, groundnut oil, hypogaeic acid, katchung oil, mandelonas
Here’s some articles on the subject:
Stay safe, guys, and please signal boost for any peanut-allergic followers you might have!

"I love lipstick. I want to write an essay about the politics of lipstick. I like lipstick that’s deep, deep red. I like lipstick that’s purple, lipstick that’s black and dark for when I want to dress up my melancholy. I like sharing lipstick with sisters. and I laugh at boys that think I wear lipstick for them to notice, I laugh, lipstick is an art you can’t ever understand. from picking out a color, testing it on the inside of my wrist, pursing my lips during the application of it. I like when I kiss a baby and leave lipstick on their cheek, when you hug someone and leave lipstick on their shirt, when it gets on your teeth and you use your tongue to get it off, when you sleep in lipstick and wake up with it on your pillow case. in 1997 mama left for Ethiopia to see her mama for the first time in 12 years. I was six and I cried the entire way home from the airport. and when we came home there on the kitchen table was the teacup mama had been drinking out of. at the bottom a sip of tea and black cardamom seeds. and there on the rim of the cup the lipstick imprint of my mama’s kiss."
