Aromaleigh v2’s Lost in Faerie collection

Like the first Lost in Faerie collection, this is limited-edition. That’s…pretty much where the similarities end. These colors are all different. There may be a few loose correspondences, but probably only because Colors resemble Colors, rather than an attempt to duplicate this or that shade from the first Lost in Faerie collection.

The first ones that caught my attention were Radella and Tianna. (Apparently I'm going through a 'greyed-blue' phase.) A few of these shades seem to be more sparkle and glitter than color - about four of the shades I swatched seemed to have little color payoff when applied dry over primer, and looked like most of their substance came from the larger particles rather than from fine pigment. There was one - Odiane - that did some interesting and subtle color-morphing when applied dry, that I didn't really see so much when the color was foiled. Nissa and Raisie are both neutrals, and Lorelle is close; but all three are very attractive colors, not just "straight neutrals." (I've sadly managed to misplace my long-ago-acquired sample of Cyanide Sorrow, so I can't check Raisie against it to see if there's any correspondence...or if it's just incredibly persistent hope of one day finding a replacement for that shade.)

I ended up buying 13 of these colors, and while I did buy one that I ended up not liking nearly as much as I thought I would (eolande), I'm very happy with all the others.
