Aromaleigh v2’s Chiara collection

The description of these shades is “jeweltone”. I tend to define jeweltone a little differently - rich, deep, and clear color. About half of these are what I personally would call “jeweltone”, the other half are richer shades, but either muted or “heathered” (laced with grey). They’re describes as a mixture of frost and shimmers - again, my definition of “frost” is a little different. Some have less of a shimmer finish than the other, but I don’t know that I’d personally call them “frost.” Then again, definining “frost” seems to have a bit of range within the category for the variances!

If you’re looking for “frost” finishes like the Aromaleigh v1 Satin Petals eyecolor…they’re not really here. (Which to me is good, since I was less than fond of most of those colors.) About the closest you could come would be some of the muted shades in this collection: Elisabetta, Lucia, possibly Nadalina and Amalia. Most of the rest are the scattered shimmer that seems to characterize Aromaleigh v2 eyeshadows. There’s enough shimmer to pick up light, but not enough to start looking to glitzy.
