Crystalline Matter Eye Soot: Selenium
— LIMITED EDITION —
Selenium is a pale lavender with fiery reflections of violet, orchid and amethyst. This color is soft and dreamy while imparting a boldly sparkling effect.
Elemental Selenium draws its name from σελήνη (selḗnē), the Ancient Greek word for moon, and this stunning cool-toned shade captures the luminosity of a lunar halo.
Finish: Bright, complex and glittering
Crystalline Matter Eye Soot: Crystallization is an alchemical process that creates order from chaos. It performs an elemental purification as minerals and metals silently draw together—atoms joining like with like—and self-assemble into lustrous and scintillating new forms.
Crystalline Matter Eye Soot captures the radiance and awe-inspiring beauty of the crystallization process in shades as radiant as the most perfect mineral specimens. These remarkable colors are all formulated, carefully mixed and filled entirely by hand, using only mineral pigments to create their remarkable sparkling finish.
Since we created Crystalline Matter Eye Soot, we have been utterly spellbound. We knew right when the formulas were perfected: the moment they moved us. These are our euphoria captured; they have given us goosebumps, caused shivers. We have gazed transfixed by the glimmering from their prismatic jars.
These are the most perfect of glitters. They sparkle so brightly with an unmatched complexity. They shift so elegantly, revealing a hypnotizing depth of color. They apply and wear so beautifully, creating a perfectly undone and utterly mesmerizing eye.
HOW TO APPLY: We prefer fingertip application for the brightest, most beautiful color payoff. If brushes are preferred, these products should be applied with synthetic bristles. Eyeshadow sponges or silicone sponges are also compatible for application.
All of the Crystalline Matter Eye Soots have a highly pigmented, flaky consistency. Just a tiny swipe of your finger picks up more than enough product for the application. If you prefer, scrape out a little bit of product onto the back of your hand. Then swirl it around on the back of your hand using your finger or an applicator to remove the excess product, and work it on your finger or applicator. Swipe your finger or applicator along your eyelid. Working in thin layers prevents fallout. Apply an additional layer, or wear on top of your favorite Ash and Ember Eye Soot for an opaque look.

Ingredients Note: The Phase 2 limited-edition release of Crystalline Matter Eye Soots contains synthetic fluorphlogopite, a new ingredient to us sometimes referred to as "synthetic mica." While our focus remains on formulating with beautiful natural ingredients, synthetic fluorphlogopite is a completely safe synthetic ingredient generally recognized as clean.
Selenium contains Ferric Ferrocyanide, a beautiful blue pigment. Ferric Ferrocyanide is approved for use in the United States for eyes and face, but not lips. In the European Union, Ferric Ferrocyanide is approved for use on eyes, face and lips.
