Xochiquetzal, the Aztec Goddess whose name translates literally to Flower-Precious Feather, was the Goddess of fertility, beauty and female sexual power. She rules over childbirth, motherhood, female crafts, and all things feminine. She is always followed by a retinue of butterflies and birds. She is depicted as a beautiful, seductive young woman who dresses in luxurious clothing and who wishes to always be surrounded by flowers. She is a patroness of motherhood, but also of excess and luxury, and of the arts. It was from her that all love spells were derived. Xochiquetzal created the first humans and spent some of her time listening to their confessions and absolving them of their sins through her motherly love. She is credited with bringing language to humanity.

Xochiquetzal's association with brightly coloured birds and tropical flowers has been represented here in a bright, cool pink shade reminiscent of dahlias, Mexico's national flower.

This is a matte, loose blush in a bright, light cool pink shade. Moderately pigmented, but still sheer to allow natural beauty to shine through. This is a buildable pigment.
