Today I’m happy to tell you about a new company, Persephone Minerals. Persephone Minerals has some lovely, soft, complex colors with duochrome action. Victoria, the owner, sent me samples of her Exotic Dance Collection, as well as several other colors she’s created.
The Exotic Dance Collection is made up of:
Bicurious, Poledance, Lap Dance, Champagne Room, Cat Fight, Falling Angel, Private Dance, No Tip No Strip, Stage Lights, Teeny Tiny T-backs, Double Dance, The Sin-o-men, Don’t Dage the DJ, Topless, RolePlay, Tan Lines
Row 0 Tigra
Row 1 Bicurious, Poledance, Lap Dance, Champagne Room, platinum rainbow
Row 2 Cat Fight, Falling Angel, Private Dance, No Tip No Strip, Throb
Row 3 Stage Lights, Teeny Tiny T-backs, Double Dance, the sin-o-men, Lucid
Row 4 Don’t Date the DJ, Topless, Role Play, Tan Lines, crucify
Row 5 Aqua Illusion, Siren’s Song, Wigan, Insomnia, Prosirpine
Row 6 Bruise, Trance, Unknown, Epiphany, Lemoni
Row 7 Pinkaholic anonymous, Kore, Nocturnal Rainbow, Lady Starscream, Char
Row 8 Apricot Lush, Sea Horse, Bipolar, Soft, Delusion
Row 9 Vindictive, Ghataki, Plush, Elysian, Sparkle Dirt
Of all the colors I swatched, the ones I thought were the prettiest were:
Bicurious, Platinum Rainbow, Cat Fight, Falling Angel, Private Dance, Stage Lights, Don’t Date the DJ, Aqua Illusion, Siren’s Song, Insomnia, Prosirpine, Trance, Unknown, Epiphany, Lemoni, Pinkaholic Anonymous, Kore, Lady Starscream, Sea Horse, Soft
The textures and complexity of colors is very nice, and so far they wear well. Currently you can find Persephone Minerals on Etsy.
These samples were sent to me by Persephone Minerals.
So many pretty colours! Thanks for the swatches!
You’re quite welcome!
Wow there’s a lot! I really like Lemoni, Unknown, Insomnia, and Sea Horse…I think I will check them out.
Yeah I was surprised I found the yellow pretty, but it is
<3 Duo Chrome colors!
I love them too! Duochromes are awesome.
Thanks for the swatches… they are lovely!! I got a few favorites already…
You’re quite welcome LP
Wow, there are some great shades! Thanks for these swatches
You’re quite welcome Biba!
Very pretty colors, they look full of sparkles! i love that, will order asap, may be this company could be my next cup of tea!
Hi July, glad you like!
Whoa, ALL the colours look gorgeous I’ll keep a look out for this company
Hi Silhouette, I linked to the company in the top of the post so you can find them on etsy
They look like lovely shadows, but… I find some of those names rather unappealing. Maybe it’s just me.
I didn’t care for some of the Exotic Dance collection names, but I found the non-collectioin names to be ok.
You’re not alone, Jade! I’m no stranger to strip clubs, but… eek. There are a few I’d get & maybe tear the labels off, but there are others that are so crass I’ll look for similar colors elsewhere. I understand this marketing technique–Urban Decay does the same thing with their stoner references–but I guess I’m just not in the target audience.
Bonus awkward strip club story: My boss buys me a lap dance, the chick sashays over… OMG it’s a girl I used to babysit! Never, ever go to a strip club in your hometown!
Hah! Crazy story, thanks for sharing it Tempest!
Nice swatches. I tried searching for this company but can’t seem to find persephone minerals on etsy. Do you have a link?
The link to Persephone is at the very top of this blog entry.
Yay I’m glad you like them Nea!
I looked at her collection the other day! Very nice swatches.
Aaaaannnd duochromes? BIG WIN.
I know! Duochromes are awesome!
Wow! Those look great!
Yay, I’m glad you like them Becca
I love Insomnia, it’s gorgeous!
Yeah it is really neat!
Popped over and grabbed a couple of samples (Rained and Dank). Can’t wait to see them. She’s doing a BOGO on samples and you can get them in a baggie or a jar.
ordered yesterday! cant wait.
i orderd full size of falling angel: seems to have a color combination i love , blue with pink iridiscent and pink sparkles.
Yeah I love blues with pink

Another mineral company I will definitely need to check out!
What colors caught your eye?
Wow those are some lovely colors! I’ll have to pick some out, now that I can’t get anything from Aromaleigh anymore :(. Maybe this will fill the void! Are those swatches on your arm?
I swatched them on my thigh I’ve decided I like swatching there since I have more room than on my hand or my arm.
Yeah that actually makes more sense especially for so many colors!
Yeah, if it’s a small collection, no more than like 12 colors, i’ll do my hand, but anything else I really prefer the thigh.
