It's been a while! I've been pretty busy with being a mom and other things, so I haven't been blogging like I should. Hopefully I'll be changing that soon!
Anyway, on to the good stuff!
Recently Kristen from Aromaleigh sent me her newest collection, Birds of a Feather. This collection is based on the feathers and eggs of different types of chickens! Kristen and I both have chickens so this collection was just perfect!
This collection consists of twelve colors- ten are eyeshadows and two are eye-safe glitter blends. The full size collection comes packaged in a beautiful small egg carton topped with artwork. The deluxe samples and full sizes come with artwork as the labels. At first glance, this collection is full of beautiful color shifting pastels that are perfect for Spring. Once I started swatching, I wasn't disappointed at all! The colors are vibrant and shift so smoothly! I had no issues with swatching or wearing these; they all applied like a dream!
For my swatches, I swatched all of these over Brija Cosmetic's Adhesive Eye Wax under a daylight bulb.
Ameraucana- "A pale/medium heathered grey blue with a strong teal/blue shift."
Brahma- "a delicate pastel pinkish brown with a strong grass green highlight."
Cochin- "A warm golden yellow/orange with a reddish pink shift."
Crevecoeur-"A pale/medium heathered green with a strong purple shift."
Langshan- "A midtone mauve with a strong green shift."
Marans- "A lustrous copper with strong green shift."
Orpington- "Heathered brown with a gold shift."
Silkie-"This shade is a natural glitter blend, and is super sparkly! A glue base is recommended for maximum payoff and reduction of fallout. This is a translucent white satin base with copious amounts of rose and copper sparks."
Sumatra- "This shade is a natural glitter blend, and is super sparkly! A glue base is recommended for maximum payoff and reduction of fallout. This is a translucent deep grey base with tons of blue and green sparks."
Wyandotte- "A pale pinkish red base with strong blue shift."
Faverolles- "A soft pale taupe with a pink/copper shift."
Sicilian- "Creamy gold with a copper shift."
To date, I think this is one of my favorite Aromaleigh collections! I just absolutely love the soft and shifty pastels. The overall theme for the collection helps for that favoritism as well. :)
