The Mythology Collection was launched some time ago, and Dryad is a beautiful metallic forest green, which is a very appropriate name, given that a dryad is a tree nymph in Greek mythology. Right from the start, Dryad captivated my attention even in the case. It just looked so intriguing:
That's a lot of product, given that it's all in a small container. These things can be massively pigmented, so a little bit will go a long way.
Here are dry and wet swatches. Dry, you get a blackened green, which is pretty to have, but perhaps not very stunning. However, once you foil it a little, you get a gorgeously stunning metallic forest green.
Don't you just love how it morph into something that's just pretty, to something so eye-popping? It's like the colour really comes to life when it's foiled.
Here's an EOTD I did using just Evil Shades Dryad, blended out into a white highlight - in this case, I used Evil Shades Ice Star. Simple, but pretty eye-catching:
And here's the eye closed. I liked this shadow, once foiled, it went on very well, and didn't give as much fallout as I thought.
And here's my eye in a really weird half-open, half-closed position. I was trying to get the picture at an angle where you could see the metallic finish of the eyeshadow, but obviously I failed, because the camera didn't pick up the subtlety of Dryad.
I don't normally wear such dark shades on my eyes, but I really enjoyed wearing this one! It's green, but it isn't your usual Springy-bright-happy green. Instead, this one is a Spring with a smokey twist - a sparkly, metallic, foil-like forest green. I do kinda feel like a forest nymph wearing this one!
