Aromaleigh v1’s Flip Your Lid

This is a bright pumpkin orange, rather than a “screaming neon orange”. It accents my eye color without being too orange (if that makes any sense.) I can easily use this for looks where I want to use fewer vibrant colors, but still want something with a solid color payoff. And, of course, it's got the same excellent spreadability, opacity, and adhesion that all of Aromaleigh v1's mattes have.

I may have bought this color just in time for Halloween. Seriously - have you seen a more perfect “pumpkin” color eyeshadow? (As of September 30, 2010, this color is <a href=“” target=“_blank”>still available from Aromaleigh</a> - it isn't sold out yet. And if you get three colors from them, you get them for $3.33 per jar. How is that for Made of Awesome and Win?) If you do want to buy from that collection, I'd also recommend Cranked and Real Gone - bright coral-red, pumpkin-orange, and brilliant candy-corn yellow. And they're also all still available.
