Persephone Minerals – an Introduction

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.

      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!

      • Phyrra

        Hi July, glad you like!

    • http://silhouettescreams.blogspot.com SilhouetteScreams

      Whoa, ALL the colours look gorgeous :) I’ll keep a look out for this company

      • Phyrra

        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.

      • Phyrra

        I didn’t care for some of the Exotic Dance collection names, but I found the non-collectioin names to be ok.

      • http://ornamentandartifice.wordpress.com Tempest

        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!

        • Phyrra

          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?

      • Phyrra

        Hi T,

      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.

      • Phyrra

        Oooh, awesome!

    • July

      Another mineral company I will definitely need to check out!

      • Phyrra

        What colors caught your eye? :)

    • PsychadelicPunch

      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?

      • Phyrra

        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.

        • Psychadelic Punch

          Yeah that actually makes more sense especially for so many colors!

          • Phyrra

            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.
