Aromaleigh v1’s Pure Drama collection

When I initially started buying Aromaleigh colors, I steered clear of this collection. I wasn't all that fond of blackened colors in general - I preferred rich colors with good pigmentation levels, as opposed to blackened shades. Turns out, the reason I was unfond of blackened shades was that most companies who tried to create dark colors, including Bare Escentuals, just didn't do that great a job of darkening their of course one ends up with a sooty shade with barely any color other than black. These colors are blackened, they even state that quite clearly...and they work best as liners, rather than as crease or contouring shades. But they're not sooty, they actually do have -=color=-. (Be still my heart.) I am more satisfied with these colors than I was with the Bete Noire colors - many of which are also blackened.

Aromaleigh v1’s Pure Drama collection

This collection contained:

  • Drama Blue — metallic blackened sapphire shimmer
  • Drama Cocoa — metallic blackened neutral-brown shimmer
  • Drama Copper — metallic blackened copper-brown shimmer
  • Drama Green — metallic blackened emerald shimmer
  • Drama Red — metallic blackened ruby shimmer
  • Drama Silver — metallic blackened pewter shimmer
  • Drama Teal — metallic blackened dark teal shimmer
  • Drama Topaz — metallic blackened antiqued brass shimmer
  • Drama Violet — metallic blackened amethyst shimmer

There was another collection, the Drama Queen liners, that was essentially the same colors but with sparkle instead of metallic shimmer.

The one color I didn't get a chance at, because it never ever appeared in Aromaleigh v1's clearance-dropdown list after mid-November, was Drama Violet. But I got Green, Blue, Red, Teal, and Silver, and they're all gorgeous colors.
