Extra-Scentsory: Exploring Makeup from Fabled Fragrances
A shop bearing the moniker “Fabled Fragrances” may seem an odd place to go for makeup, but this cruelty-free indie company uses scent and beauty together to remind us that history is still important in our modern era. Drawing inspiration from fables, myths, fantasy, horror, and literature, the brand weaves a tapestry of exotic colors and original scents that will inspire the imagination.
Eye look using Eyeshadow in Blood Moon//$4.75 – $13.25
In this historical vein, their latest release is Victorian Grace, a set of moody neutrals that work well alone or with their other collections such as Smokey Gems, Lovecraft, and Wonderland. Fabled Fragrances boasts 13 loose eyeshadow collections in all, or you can put together your own Jarred Set. Shadows can also be bought individually. Every month they offer a new, limited edition Color of the Month. September’s COTM is Aether, a pale orange with strong teal shift. Shadows are available in 3-, 5-, and 10-gram sifter jars. Samples are also available for purchase.
Top Row, L to R: Eyeshadows in Black Knight, Eclipse, and Mountains of Madness. Middle Row, L to R: Eyeshadows in Blood Moon, Crimson Rose, and Pyrotechnic. Bottom Row, L to R: Eyeshadows in Indigo Night, Aubergine, and Mangrove.//$4.75-$13.25
Their Liquid Matte Lipstick features 24 colors that are quick-drying, smudge-resistant, transfer-resistant, waterproof, and kiss-proof. Non-sticky Lip Gloss can top the Liquid Lipsticks or be used alone for a more ethereal look. Best of all, both products are available for sale in 1.5 ml tubes, so you can sample before buying full-sized.
Liquid Matte Lipstick in Afterlife//$3.75 – $18
The brand also offers Liquid Luster Highlighters, eyeshadow primers, lip balms and scrubs, and, of course, fragrances. Fabled Fragrances ships worldwide from Austin, TX. They are cruelty-free, and most products are vegan (see product listings). You can purchase products from their website, www.fabledfragrances.com.
