Featured Eyeshadow ~ Denouement

Today I want to feature a color from the Literature collection, and give you a bit more info about it.

Printcess Denouement Mineral Makeup

Denouement is a  medium Yale blue matte made of Sodium Aluminum Sulfosilicate (for color), Chromium Oxide (for color), Mica (for color), Boron Nitride (for staying power and slip), and Boron Oxide (for slip and silky texture).

Denouement means the final part of the narrative, in which the strands of the plot are drawn together and matters are explained or resolved. It’s the falling action, after the climax. It’s very similar to the epilogue, in fact….and when I created Denouement I already had the color Epilogue.

But I’m a bit of a snob, and Denouement is a pretty French word (pronounced ‘dah-new-moh’). Something about a twilight blue with occasional flash and shimmer screams French to me (Paris, in particular) and I have no idea why. Thus, the color got a name!

And here’s an embarrassing story for you: I hand stamp all of my labels, like a one-woman printing press. I stamped 20 labels for Denouement before I realized that I wasn’t exactly sure how to spell it. Sure enough, I was spelling it “Denoumont”.


Proof that even a bibliophage published author with a B.A. in English and Writing could use a little spellcheck.
