Aromaleigh Cosmetics Eyeshadows — Swatch fest!

Today I have some swatches for you and a quick review.  I love loose eyeshadows and these were my first from Aromaleigh Cosmetics.  I purchased a few full sized eyeshadows sight unseen because I was taken in by the photos on the website and… admittedly, I am a sucker for the names of some of them!  All of these were swatched dry, on bare skin — no primer used here.

Abbatoir is from the This Is My Design Collection, inspired by the TV show Hannibal — which is one of my all-time favorite shows.  So I couldn’t pass it up! Aromaleigh describes is as “This shade is a muted copper frost with a strong blue duochrome shift.”  I’d say it’s a coppery mauve with hints of rose gold.

Boudicca is from the permanent Ignis Antiquita Collection which is inspired by BADASS ladies from history.  Badass ladies from history are my favorite! Aromaleigh describes Boudicca as “strong plummy/russet brown, with vivid multichrome effects of green/gold and blue/teal.” I’d say that is entirely accurate.  It’s definitely a cooler-toned brown rather than a warm one.

Gotcha is also from the This Is My Design Collection. It’s described as ” A satiny muted oxblood with a metallic copper highlight lurking in the background… “GOTCHA” also has a teal duochrome effect and bright teal shimmer.” I’d say it’s more russet than true oxblood but it is gorgeous and rich.

Lagertha is another from the permanent Ignis Antiquita collection.  Lagertha is also a BADASS LADY on The History Channel’s amazing show Vikings.  She is my favorite character and one of my favorite TV characters ever.  No way I could pass it up.  #TeamLagertha! #Shieldmaiden4Life! Aromaleigh describes this shade as “a deep, smooth copper with a very intense chrome effect of chartreuse, green and gold” — entirely accurate.  This is a burnished copper, like a well-worn penny, rather than a shiny new penny shade of copper.

Overall, these eyeshadows are gorgeous.  I found the descriptions on the website pretty accurate for the most part.  My only “disappointment” was that I found Abbatoir and Boudicca very similar, though since Abbatoir is Limited Edition, I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing.  You can use these shadows without a primer to get a sheer wash of color and sparkle, or over a regular primer to get deeper, full coverage.  A sticky primer is not necessary.  You can also use these wet as a liner.  They blend very nicely and on me, with a primer they last 12+ hours.  I didn’t find any of these shades had any fall-out with the sparkles — but none of these are glitter-heavy.  I’m definitely impressed!  My order came to me quickly and included samples.  I’ve already placed another order from them, for foundation and um, more eyeshadows (I’m an eyeshadow junkie, what can I say?).  I like how the collections and colors are inspired by history and geeky stuff that I love.  It definitely grabs my attention and makes me more interested to buy.

I think if you’re looking for loose eyeshadow, it’s likely that Aromaleigh Cosmetics has what you’re looking for.

These items were all purchased by me and my opinions are mine alone.
