Aromaleigh v1’s Ocean

I was clued into the wonderfulness that is this color by MarjaMariachi…who also told me (when I expressed interest) that it was being discontinued, and then found me the link to buy it. I bought three pots. Me and my stocking-up… These were quite full pots already - so much so that once I repotted them to match the rest of my collection, I ended up with two packed-to-the-brim 10-gram jars (with sifters in).

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the eyeshadow in the pot; top right, the eyeshadow mixed with water and applied to bare skin; bottom left, the eyeshadow applied dry over primer.

I'm not sure why this color (and a few others from the Pure Frost collection) were being discontinued entirely. Something to do with the suppliers no longer carrying the necessary pigment oxides…? At any rate, it is now no longer available, not even in Aromaleigh v1's newly resized packaging (5 gram jars). There are some similar colors in other lines, but nothing that's an exact match: Simply Naturals' Bluebell is more sparkly and is less aqua; Bare Escentuals' Blue Moon has less green but is the same color intensity and finish; Bare Escentuals' Freedom has more grey and less pearl. It's highly frustrating. Not even TSS has yet come out with a color to match this one.
