Aromaleigh v1’s 14K

This is straight mica, and it acts like it. It won't adhere well without a primer, and wet application takes a little bit more TLC than is necessary with most other loose-powder eyeshadows. The color is attractive, and there is enough shimmer to enhance but it's not a complete glitz-bomb. This may be, or made with, one of the “low sheen” colors I've seen mentioned on some of the mica wholesaler sites. I got this (and about half a dozen other Pure Hues colors) when the last of the Aromaleigh v1 shades were on deep discount, through the Aromaleigh v2 site.
