Ok this is going to be kind of short because I really need to get to work on addressing save the dates and you know actual work. But I wanted to at least get this small group up of the Aromaleigh, Brilliant Deductions collection. There are 21 colors in this collection and from what I have seen so far most of these will need to be purchased in more than a sample size.
Aromaleigh has been on my radar for a few months and back in September they ran a special on the entire collection so I placed a sample order. I just have to say that Kristen of Aromaleigh is brilliant with color. I feel slightly ashamed that I have not captured the nuances and depths of these shadows but here is my attempt.
***All photos are taken outside. Bare skin on top and Tarte Clean Slate 360 Creaseless Primer bottom, unless otherwise mentioned. ***
The entire reason I even was tempted by the collection was for BRAINY IS THE NEW SEXY…can you guess..yup it is a pink shadow. It is just a fabulous as the site led me to believe it would be.
I have to say in the bag it is a pretty unassuming color but like a password this color can not be easily captured. This one I tried to apply wet and failed miserably. I will buy a full size in this just to hack its color secrets and get an amazing shot.
FRAILTY OF GENIUS
Another deceiving color in the bag but on the skin is beautiful. I can see me using this as a crease or transition color easily. I really REALLY like this color.
In the bag it is a simply unassuming light gray but once on it is gorgeous with small sparkles that make it interesting but not a total glitter bomb.
Duo-chromie goodness right here! A fabulous red color with a bluish shift. I love duo-chrome colors especially as liners or lid colors because as the light changes so do they.
DAMAGED & DELUSIONAL
This one I had a super hard time catching and really need to re-swatch this and put in the next post. Both D&D and Experimental need a base of some sort, bare skin for these two colors simply will not work if you want to get the full effect.
Overall I am thrilled with the quality from Aromaleigh and the complexity of the shadows. I am excited to finish this collection and then swatch the fall/Halloween collection based upon Dante’s Inferno, Diavoli, it can be found here.
