Aromaleigh Lost In Faerie Collection
I'm sure everyone knows by now that Aromaleigh is shutting down after 12 years. While I haven't been able to test these shadows as much as I wanted to, I want to get them up before they dissapear for good. That being said, unlike some other bloggers who have swatches of the entire collection, I really don't feel my swatches are that good and instead want to share my top 6 picks from the collection. If you want to see amazing swatches, check out (among others) Phyrra.
My top 6 in no particular order...
Donella - The first thing I thought of this shade was chocolate mousse. A soft mousey brown with a little shimmer for pizazz.
Swatches in the same order, see how Elodie and Naida just glow?! These swatches were done without a base. I did however, pat the shadows onto the skin instead of sweeping or rubbing them on as that helps with loose powder shadows. There are also plenty of great bases out that suit mineral eyeshadows.
You can still find the Aromaleigh Lost in Faerie Collection at Dormant Dreams while stock lasts for $8 a jar (free shipping in the US). And until Aromaleigh runs out of stock completely, you can still buy their products at their website and get 35% off with code ADIEU35. It looks like they will be open till at least the beginning of August (the coupon expires on the 10th). If you've been wanting to try (or stock up on) their products, I wouldn't wait too long.
Disclosure: These products were sent by Aromaleigh for review purposes.
