Though first officially described by the French entomologist Félix Édouard Guérin-Méneville in 1861, the Japanese Silk Moth (antheraea yamamai) was world renown for its naturally white and highly elastic silk. Originally cultivated for more than one thousand years in Japan, this highly prized silk is now quite rare and expensive, and is regularly replaced by easier to dye silk.
Japanese Silk is a velvety light sienna shadow with the tiniest whisper of golden shimmer. Japanese Silk is also lip safe and looks pretty patted at the center of a dark brown lip for a chocolate ombre. It is shown swatched over our Power Up Primer, and photographed with diffused, cool-toned flash lighting. Japanese Silk as listed is in a 5gr jar with sifter and screw-on lid.
