Aromaleigh v2’s Down the Chimney

Almost-but-not-quite a color changer. It changes color (for me, at least) depending on application, not light angle. Foiled, you see the faded-denim blue. Applied dry, the primary color is a cool slate grey. There's a bit more shimmer in this color than in some of Aromaleigh's more recent “shimmer” shades, which I like. The color payoff is also very good.

At the time of its release, the Holly Days collection was the best collection from Aromaleigh v2 in terms of color pigmentation and finish. The two previous LE collections were just a bit softer in terms of color intensity, and the shimmer (or sparkle) didn't show up quite as well on application as it did in the pan, unless I packed on a lot over wet primer (wet, as opposed to still-damp.)
