Aromaleigh Swatches

Giveaway Prize

Hi Everyone!

A few weeks ago I saw that Aromaleigh was running their weekly contest on Facebook and I thought I'd join in the fun! Well, I WON! I was quickly sent 4 full size shadows of my choice along with 4 samples. At this point I had never purchased from Aromaleigh but I did have a sample from a long time ago.

I'm not sure why I never made a purchase. Maybe they just weren't on my radar at the time? I don't know, but I'm hooked now! I've already made another order after this prize was sent (that order arrived very quickly and was packaged nicely; I'll have swatches of those soon). Anyway, I love how Aromaleigh shows their inspiration for their colors (for most collections). Being an Honors art student all though high school and still loving art, I love seeing how they interpret paintings into eyeshadows. All of these shadows applied nicely and blended well. No issues at all.

All are swatched over Glamour Doll Eyes Foil Me!

Kirke- "a deep muted teal satin finish base with a very strong metallic copper highlight duochrome."
 OKEANIDES (Daughters of Oceanus) Eyeshadow Collection

 Manners & Etiquette- "A wickedly vibrant lime green with strong gold tones and a smattering of deep sapphire sparkles."
Ever in Your Favor Collection

Thetis- "a muted lilac satin finish base with a glowing reddish metallic duochrome effect."

 Unorthodox- "This shade is a a soft warm beige with a vibrant turquoise duochrome."
 THIS IS MY DESIGN collection

Jรถrmungandr- " It's very chameleon-like. While it looks purplish in the jar, it goes on as a deep smoked navy blue with a strong coppery red metallic shift."
 SERPENS eyeshadow collection

 Starling- "This shade is warm black frost with a strong orange/copper duochrome. Appears as a chocolate brown in photographs, must see in person!"
THIS IS MY DESIGN collection

 Galatea- "a satin-finish pale cream, with a strong pink/violet iridescent duochrome effect."
 OKEANIDES (Daughters of Oceanus) Eyeshadow Collection

 Keto-"a deep grayed blue satin finish base with vivid aqua interference highlights and shimmer."
 OKEANIDES (Daughters of Oceanus) Eyeshadow Collection

I think it should be noted that swatches will look different from the website when swatched over different bases. Here is a bit of information from Aromaleigh's website: "IMPORTANT APPLICATION TIP: These colors are all swatched over a light layer of cream eyeshadow primer. If you do not use a primer, you will not see the effects. A primer is necessary to bring the highlight/duochrome effects out of the satin (almost matte) base. Using these with no primer will result in very muted effects.".

What are your favorite colors? I absolutely love them all. Unorthodox is AMAZING in person, unfortunately my camera could not pick up the blue shifts as well as I'd like. I should probably try again on my DSLR and see if that works.
More Aromaleigh swatches coming soon!
