Archetype’s Valley of the Kings

Yet another long and crazy day for me at work! I can only hope the rest of this week is less exciting where work is concerned.

Shade Descriptions:
Valley of the Kings – metallic intense opaque bright sunny-hued gold with a twist of turquoise sparkle
China White – a crystalline barely pink base with a pile of aquamarine and purple sparkle
The Uneasy Dancers – teal blue with subtle gold shimmer and silver glitter
Shackled – velvety black purple shimmer with lots of green sparkle

Eyes:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Archetype Valley of the Kings – on eyelid
Archetype The Uneasy Dancers – crease
Archetype China White – to highlight
Archetype Shackled – wetlined on upper lash line, dry on lower lash line
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero – lower water line
Benefit BadGal Mascara in Black

Cheeks:
Meow Blush in Illuminate

Lips:
Fyrinnae Lip Lustre in Lollipop-pop

Face:
Meow Pampered Puss foundation in Inquisitive Siamese
Meow Skinny Dipper in Medium Siamese

I really like Valley of the Kings! The turquoise sparkle in it makes this a very fun golden shade.
Shackled is an amazing shade, too, though the green looks more turquoise than green to me.
The Uneasy Dancer is really nice, but the silver glitter has fall out. It reminds me of some of my Urban Decay shadows.
I don’t normally experience fall out from mineral makeup quite like this.

      I LOVE this look. That gold color is awesome. You have now inspired me to order some samples from yet another company for the nights when I attempt bold and daring color. I hope these come through though – I've been reading about the shipping and communication issues. My husband is just excited to see what Vagina Dentata looks like! LOL – typical man. :)

      Hi Katrina,
      Archetype has had trouble with their email for a while now. I think it took my order about 4 weeks to come through, though on their website it states that it can take 6 weeks or longer. You can try emailing them at their gmail address if you have problems after that 6 week period, or you can try to contact them through their MySpace profile, though they've not responded on there for about a month.

      I think they're just missing a lot of messages.
      I do like their products and they do seem like nice people.

      If you want another good gold color, Fyrinnae and Aromaleigh have some that just came out :)
