Recently Aromaleigh released a new collection called Feast of Lupercal for Valentine's 2015. Here is a tiny snippet of what the collection is based off of (there is more history and an in-depth look within each listing):
" Lupercalia was an ancient Roman festival of fertility and purification which took place in February."
This collection is full of beautiful pinks, reds, browns, greens and purples! I was in love with this collection as soon as I saw sneak peaks being released on Aromaleigh's Facebook page. I'm a fool for pinks and purples, so this collection was right up my alley. This collection is seasonal and will be retired March 15th, so I'd suggest purchasing any you like as soon as possible!
These are swatched over ELF Eyeshadow Primer. I usually swatch over NYX Eyeshadow base, but I didn't like the way they looked over NYX this time (personal preference), so I used ELF. All are swatched under a daylight bulb and the shifts are caught by moving my arm away from the light source.
Trivia- "A soft black frost base with a strong red/violet interference shimmer and sparkle. Appears more red or more violet depending on your lighting conditions."
Rumina- "a silvered mauve/pink with an aqua iridescence and shimmer."
Caprotina- "a beautiful neutral brown with undertones of smoke and olive, sparkling with borealis shimmer."
Lucina- "a pale yellow with strong gold, red and violet sparkle. This shade is very glittery, and isn’t meant to be worn as a standalone eyeshadow, as it is rather formulated to act as a sheer layer of glimmer"
Faunus- "a soft mossy green with gold tones, and interference shimmers of blue and violet"
Februata - "a lovely cool pink with a strong gold interference shimmer and rose sparks."
|This is a hand swatch to capture the green shift a bit more.|
Juno- "a deep muted violet frost with a shimmering evergreen metallic overlay, which produces some really unique effects. The duochromatic effect of this color becomes more obvious if applied over a cream primer, or foiled/glue base."
Feronia- "a rich “Marsala” brown frost base with a pink iridescence and sparkles."
Vestales- "a beautiful muted violet with copper/rose shimmering iridescence."
Luperci- "A reddish brown with pewter tones and a shimmering metallic indigo blue overlay with blue sparks. (Will appear more reddish brown if foiled or applied over a glue base)."
I can't pick any favorites out of the bunch because I love them all! They're all so unique! If you'd like to purchase these, you can find them HERE!
