Aromaleigh v2’s Bloom collection

A palette of softer shades and neutrals, in shimmer, frost, and pearl finishes. This is the second of Aromaleigh v2’s stock eyeshadow collections. If you prefer brighter colors or bolder shades, you should still remember this collection - because every once in a while, you want a blending shade or a softer shade to balance a look, or a “daily-wear” / “no-makeup” shade. These are excellent for that.

Aromaleigh v2’s Bloom collection Aromaleigh v2's Bloom

The shimmer finishes are not too obvious, not a super-shiny or near-metallic finish. In fact, you can see in the swatch photos that the colors themselves are not fully opaque (more like 75% opacity), and the shimmer is very subtle even when applied wet. Paquerette, Amandier and Narcisse can work well as highlighters for most people, and all of the colors make a nice softer "watercolor" wash when applied over a bright or white base.

This collection contained:

  • Amandier — gilded soft peach shimmer
  • Fraxinelle — soft cool brown shimmer
  • Hellebore — light sage green shimmer
  • Lunaire — pale lilac-purple frost
  • Marguerite — soft warm brown frost
  • Narcisse — pale yellow pearl
  • Nymphea — pale yellow-green frost
  • Paquerette — soft white frost
  • Pavot — soft medium-bright orange shimmer
  • Primevère — soft mellowed pink shimmer
