I really don’t have words anymore for this man just please stop him
Wait he’s training NOW?!
I’ll stop reblogging this when it becomes irrelevant which will be never.
That this popped up on my dash, without irony, so soon after DC announced its slate of films, featuring films headlined by a woman, a Polynesian AND an African American, while Marvel has STILL not announced any release dates for films where the above are, if present, simply support for the straight, white, male headliner… amuses me. :-)
One could argue it’s still relevant, just not in the way it was originally intended to be.
DC is represented by a person of color, trying their hardest and still not getting any credit as Marvel, the white guy, brags about their perceived superiority when they aren’t actually working themselves nearly as hard as the person they’re bragging towards.I’m so sick of this bullshit. So fucking what? Congratulations DC! You are being diverse! Let’s praise DC for being diverse and start bashing marvel for not diversifying itself yet! Well guess what, the white guy is selling. Guess where Avengers ranks on highest grossing films? Number 3. Wanna know where Man of Steel ranks (the first movie in DCs cinematic universe)? Not even in the top 50. So yeah this is still relevant because Marvel is still dominating the box office. Idk who expects Marvel to deviate from their current strategy. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

Here’s that sneak peek mentioned earlier! This is “LUXURIAE MANIAE”, from the “Sol Invictus” 2014 Holiday collection. Luxuriae Maniae translates to “luxury to debauch”, which is in part one of the most historically well-known aspects of the Roman Saturnalia. Social roles were reversed, as slaves enjoyed some of the luxury and privilege usually only known to freeman. The typical Roman uniform of the toga was cast aside in favor of extravagant, colorful clothing known as “synthesis”.
This color is applied over Nyx cream eyeshadow primer and has a very prominent duochrome of various tones of gold, bronze and copper- but applied over a sticky primer? This color will pop off the charts! It’s vegan, lip/cheek safe, and formulated for maximum impact!

I do love the little Saturnalia factoids included in these descriptions.
Here’s another sneak peek from our upcoming 2014 Holiday collection, “SOL INVICTUS”, which is inspired by the Roman Saturnalia! This color is “SIGILLARIA”. The day of Sigillaria was a day for exchanging little gifts. Unlike today’s lavish gift-giving of the season, the Romans exchanged small tokens of affection, such as little clay figures, beeswax candles, dice or other small, non-costly items. The most common gift on Sigillaria (December 23) was Sigillaria, which were specifically small clay or wax figurines. It is believed that this tradition stems from more ancient agricultural festivals, which involved human sacrifice. The act of exchanging Sigillaria is seen today in our tradition of gingerbread man cookies! So this holiday, when you eat a figurine-shaped cookie, recall the ancient Romans and their day of little gifts.
This color is a gorgeously rich amber which is slightly metallic and having a spectacular amount of strong aqua and fuchsia sparklies. (The photo barely captures how pretty and unique this color is in real life- I’ve never made a color like this and I think last time I counted, I’ve made over 1000 eyeshadow shades in the last 16 years! So that says a lot, LOL!) The color-shifting sparklies are very dominant in perrson!
I don’t have an ETA yet for this collection, but a rough estimate is the 2nd week of November. There are twelve luxe shades in the collection, and they all contain exquisite multichromatic color traveling pigments that are super sparkly (and are debuting in this collection). #saturnalia #holiday #sparkly #aromaleigh #sneakpeek #solinvictus #aromaleighcosmetics #eyeshadow #behindthescenes
From your friendly neighborhood Pagan, just a note about the Saturnalia info blurb on Sigillaria. It is a strongly debated matter of interpretation by scholars and historians whether the small clay figures (sigillaria) are a hold over of human sacrifice or simply innocent gifts primarily given to children. (Like old school dolls and action figures y’all.)
As mentioned, it was also the practice for adults to exchange small (mostly practical) gifts like wax candles (cerei), earthenware figures (sigillaria), writing tablets, dice, combs, hats, hunting knives, masks, etc, even gag gifts (supposedly a tradition popularized by Augustus Caesar), and later gifts made of silver.
Hee. I want Gingerbread cookies now.
"Lua Saturni" from the upcoming "Sol Invictus" Saturnalia-inspired holiday collection! This is our 5th sneak peek. You can view earlier ones here:http://aromaleighv2.wordpress.com/2014/10/20/holiday-2014-sneak-peeks-the-saturnalia-inspired-sol-invictus-eyeshadow-collection/
Lua was Saturn’s consort, identified with Lua Mater, “Mother Destruction”, a goddess in whose honor the weapons of enemies killed in war were burned, perhaps in expiation. Saturn’s chthonic nature connected him to the underworld and its ruler Dis Pater, the Roman equivalent of Pluto, who was also a god of hidden wealth. In sources of the 3rd century AD and later, Saturn is recorded as receiving dead gladiators as offerings (munera) during or near the Saturnalia. These gladiator events, ten days in all throughout December, were presented mainly by the quaestors and sponsored with funds from the treasury of Saturn.
Lua Saturni is a heathered deep indigo/violet (will change from more blue to more violet depending on your viewing conditions) with dominant blue to teal sparkles that color shift to fuchsia/red.
This color is vegan, lip/eye/cheek safe!
There will be twelve colors in this exquisite collection, and I hope to have it available for ordering mid-November. I’d love to hear what you think of these colors, so please click the like button or leave me a comment!
