Recently Aromaleigh posted a Facebook status looking for beauty bloggers to swatch their Dryades Collection and of course I sent over my information! I was also asked if I would like to swatch their Diavoli Collection at that time, which was reviewed by me HERE.
Here's a little information about the Dryades Collection:
"Autumn 2014 welcomes the DRYADES collection at Aromaleigh… ten dramatic duochrome shades imbued with the tones of Fall’s splendor. Dryads and Hamadryads were the Greek nymphs of the forests and trees. These colors were all inspired by specific Dryads or groups of Dryads, and incredible classic paintings portraying them."
These are indeed duochromes and some have a traveling shift in color. I have swatched these over Glamour Doll Eyes' Foil me and Elf's Eye Primer since different bases can give these a completely different look. These applied smoothly without any issues.
|Daphnis over Foil Me|

Daphnis- "a rich chestnut brown with a vibrant color traveling duochrome that shifts from blue to teal to green."
|Byblis over Foil Me|
|Byblis over Elf primer|
Byblis- "an exquisite warm green with a very strong red/copper duochrome."
|Pitys over Foil Me|
|Pitys over Elf primer|
Pitys- "is extremely unusual- it will look different in just about every lighting condition due to the strong color traveling multichrome effect. It has a chestnut-purple plush base, with color shifting effects of chartreuse to gold to green."
|Hesperides over Foil Me|
|Hesperides over Elf Primer|
Hesperides- "a plush terracotta shade with a strong golden to chartreuse color traveling duochrome."

Kraneia- "a deep breen (brown-green) with a strong red to violet duochrome..."

I really enjoy all of these colors. I think they are the perfect shades to wear during the Autumn season! Each color in this collection perfectly portrays the artwork they were inspired by (those can be found on each color's listing). This collection is permanent, so no need to rush before they're all gone! I think I may need to get a few full sizes of some of these colors since I can see myself wearing them regularly!
