Aromaleigh v2.1’s Feast of Lupercal collection

I missed this collection the first time it came around, because I wasn’t buying much Aromaleigh at that time. The second time it came around - February 2016 - I picked up the sample set. Now, the collection and colors have been discontinued as Aromaleigh pares down their line to simplfy things, so if you want any of these colors, they’re on clearance. (I’m doing this writeup because I’ve already taken the swatch photos…may as well post them.)

The colors are decent quality, and an interesting palette: mostly reds, golds, and some neutrals. They're not the best example of indie eyeshadows (in fact, some of them are made to be "effects" layers) but they're not as hydrophobic as some Aromaleigh shadows were, so they're a little more easily buildable. A few of these shadows can be a little bit less opaque than the others, but they'll contrast better over a dark cream shadow. Lucina is the only color that's supposed to be a sheerer "glitter" rather than a more traditional eyeshadow formulation.

This collection include(d):

  • Capriotina
  • Faunus
  • Februata
  • Feronia
  • Juno
  • Luperci
  • Lucina
  • Rumina
  • Trivia
