If you've been thinking of buying a color from this collection, you need to know a few things before you purchase:
Aromaleigh has a coupon that lets you choose one color from this collection free with any order of $30 or more (before tax and shipping). They actually have several "standing" coupons. (Just go to their site and click on "coupons + deals".)
these are jars of pure mica powder. No pigments, no oxides, just mica. It even says that on the jar lids (I ordered two from this collection: Magic Wand, and Delicate Burgundy.): "100% Pure Mica Powder". This is not necessarily a bad thing...but you should be aware that you can buy pure mica powder from many different places, including Coastal Scents (where you pay $6 for nearly 30 times what you'll get from Aromaleigh for nearly the same price.)
EDIT November 2009: this set is being discontinued. Apparently this was put together when Aromaleigh first started selling mineral makeup, and was not removed as original colors and products were added over the years. Beginning November 2009, the final jars of Pure Hue Intense Pigments were sold at a deep discount.
Those caveats aside, if all you want is a small sampling of a particular mica powder color and are ordering enough to be able to use the coupon, OR you don't want to try mixing the larger quantities to get exactly the same color as Aromaleigh's, then - by all means, go for it. It's not a low-quality product. It's just more costly in comparison to other vendors.
I guessed at several because I only ordered two colors from this Aromaleigh collection. I was able to make educated guesses on the others based on my familiarity with interfine powders (when I first started using mineral makeup, I was so thrilled to find these that I kind of went nuts. Bought the same thing, under different names, from four different manufacturers.)
