My First Eye Using Aromaleigh!

So Aromaleigh cosmetics was first brought to my attention years ago when a friend on MUA wanted me to make custom purchase for her since she was in another country. Happily I obliged. But I had never ordered from Aromaleigh. When I heard that they were closing and going out of business, I grabbed a few shadows from the Ciao, Italia collection (quite hontestly because I love the names). So here was my first face of the day using Aromaleigh...


Quite honestly, I'd be lying if I said these shadows went on easy as butter, because they didn't. I had quite a lot of fall out from Fico (more than I expected), and they weren't as smooth as other independent mineral lines I've tried (Meow for example). But the colors still made for a pretty eye, I think.

Breakdown

Eyes
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • Aromaleigh Eye Shadow in Fico - All over eye
  • Aromaleigh Eye Shadow in Cioccolata - Outer Corner
  • Aromaleigh Eye Shadow in Tiramisu - Into the crease a bit
  • Meow Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Virgin - Above the crease on the brow
  • MAC Eye Kohl in Teddy - Linned upper lid.
  • MAC Plushlash Mascara in Plushblack
Face
  • MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15
  • MAC Beauty Powder in Truth & Light - Dusted this all over. I love it.
  • MAC Beauty Powder in Oh So Fair - Used as a blush
Lips
  • MAC Lip Pencil in Spice
  • MAC Slimshine Lipstick in Scant - I forgot how much I love this shade. It's really quite lovely.
By the way, their Aromaleigh's going out of business sale has been going on for freaking ever!  And they keep coming out with more "good bye" type collections. Very strange indeed.
