Aromaleigh v2.1’s Six Wives of Henry VIII collection

Originally started in September 2016 and intended to be a series of six monthly releases…it got stretched out a little bit, as releases were delayed. The sixth and final wife (Catherine Parr) finally got her collection-release in July 2021. The first three subsets were initially released with twelve items each, then got whittled down to seven. (Personally, I think that seven items - two face powders, one lip color, and four eye shades - is good for a series of related collections like this. Each subset forms its own small but still full-face palette.) The final subset was initially released with five eye shadows, two face powders, and one lip color.

Eyeshadows from the Catherine of Aragon subset: Banished, Fidei Defensatrix, Leviticus, and Trastamara. Face colors from Catherine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn subsets: Defiant, Humble and Loyal, Lady Perseverance, and Marquess. Eyeshadows from the Anne Boleyn subset: Besotted, Chateau Vert, La Plus Heureuse, and Queen in Heaven. Eyeshadows from the Jane Seymour subset: Bound to Obey and Serve, Lady in Waiting, Show of Virtue, and Triumphant. Face colors from Jane Seymour and Anne of Cleves subsets: Betrothed, Trepidation, Beloved Sister, and Precedence. Eyeshadows from the Anne of Cleves subset: As A Maid, Heiress, In Name Only, and Rebuffed. Eyeshadows from the Catherine Howard subset: Aristocratic, Infatuation, Mercurial, and Royal Regard. Face colors from Catherine Howard subset: Indiscretions, and Rose without a Thorn.
