Aromaleigh v1’s Astronomical collection

This collection was released about two years ago, as Aromaleigh (v1) was closing its doors - though preview pictures were up a bit earlier. The colors are a mixture of shades and finishes, and while a few initially drew my interest, I wasn’t all that sure I wanted to get any when the colors might possibly be of lesser quality than I was used to from Aromaleigh. (I worry about the quality of items when a store is closing; and I’d had the recent less-than-stellar example of The SheSpace, whose product quality had been on the wane for a while and seemed to take a nosedive after she announced her shop’s closure.) When Aromaleigh re-opened about a month ago, the final collections re-appeared (minus a few shades that had sold out), and I finally bought those colors that I’d been looking at and debating over.

This collection contained:

  • Antimatter — cool slate-silver shimmer
  • Apogee — soft muted wine-purple shimmer
  • Azimuth — metallic smokey aqua-green shimmer
  • Big Bang — medium-dark indigo sparkle
  • Binary — medium-soft yellow shimmer
  • Blueshift — muted slate-indigo sparkle
  • Celestial — medium cool pink shimmer
  • Crescent — vivid sun-yellow shimmer
  • Dark Matter — soft black with gold sparkle
  • Ephemeris — metallic browned copper-purple sparkle
  • Escape Velocity — metallic indigo sparkle
  • Event Horizon — aqua-turquoise shimmer
  • Extra-Galactic — smokey purple shimmer
  • Fusion — bright warm green shimmer
  • Heliosphere — metallic burnished gold shimmer
  • Magellanic — metallic copper-brown shimmer
  • Megaparsec — gilded medium brown sparkle
  • Milky Way — bright tanned white shimmer
  • Nadir — silvered mauve-pink shimmer
  • Neutrino — dark navy sparkle
  • Perihelion — soft gold shimmer
  • Pulsar — bright orange shimmer
  • Retrograde — fuchsia-red shimmer
  • Umbra — smokey medium-deep lilac shimmer
  • Wavelength — rich turquoise-blue sparkle
