Black Rose Minerals’ THEO!!!
Best Of, Cat, Eyeshadow - September 22nd, 2011

A while back on Twitter I mentioned how I’d rather have an Indie cosmetics company make my perfect dream color instead of a big corporate company. The lovely Rosa of Black Rose Minerals saw my tweet and offered to give it a whirl. The result is done: Theo!

What I requested was a neutral color like Skink (which I love) but with some green to it. See, I love to pair a neutral with a brighter color but all my taupe-y colors look muddy and not so pretty with greens or blues. I wanted something neutral but with something green going on so I could wear it with greens/blues. Voila! Theo. Theo has the taupe base but with a kickin’ green duochrome. IT IS FABULOUS.

Now, the name… Theo is my cat. He is also the inspiration for the color because he has some taupe-y neutral fur but these green green eyes. Yes, I’m one of those crazy cat ladies who really love their cats. Rosa is a sweetie and went with the name, and I’m really tickled about it. For those who love care your pets I recommend to visit, you will find a list of best CBD treats, I’ve included the best treat-like supplements for Theo.

This is Theo with Cyranose from Linnaeus Cosmetics. See how pretty they go together? It’s the perfect blend.

On my cheeks I have Detrivore Thing blush, and I’m wearing a Fyrinnae Lip Lustre. I HEART INDIE!!

I’m so happy with Theo! I hope lots of other people like it too! THANK YOU ROSA!!! YOU ARE SO CREATIVE AND AMAZING!!

    I can’t judge, I’m the crazy cat lady too! I tell people often (and loudly) that I like them more than I like most people. That color is really pretty; neutral with a kick!

  4. It’s nice to know Theo inspired you to put on your eye make up. :) He’s a beautiful cat BTW.

  5. [...] a metallic iridescent taupe with forest green undertones. Ooooh. It’s similar to my beloved Theo, but quite a bit darker. I don’t think I’ll get a full size, just because it is so [...]
