Aromaleigh Victoria's Revenge

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

If you read my blog for a while, you probably knew I started out with mineral pigments as my first makeup item.

I was so excited to be sent the full sample set of the latest collection at Aromaleigh - Victoria's Revenge.

The colour chart on the left is from their website, and on the right is how the baggies were sent to me - in a pink mess bag and pink wrapping paper. The thing with pigments is that they could show up totally different from what they appear in the bags.

So check out the swatches, they are swiped on with a damp brush. The shades with *** are my best favorites, but there are more in this collection that I'd love to own full sized jars of, if not the whole set.

First set of 10, first row, from L-R: Phantasm***, Cyanide Sorrow***, Gaslight Tears***, Magick & Metal, Skeleton Key.

Second row: Internal Chaos, Airy Ethos, Oleander Vapor, Scratched Scruples, Private Lunacy.

The swatches are all taken with flash. I think it brings out the lovely shimmer in the colours. It's my weakness and I always lean toward the darker shades. The very first few shades already knocked me over.

Second set, first row: Brazen & Bitter, Bleeding Poppy, Nightshade, Freakshow, Mourning's Whimsy.

Second row: Mania's Locus***, Obscura, Tarnished Strychnine***, Splintered***, Perpetual Motion.

Again, dark shades got me. The collection is Victorian/ Steampunk/ Gothloli inspired, so that isn't a surprise. The colours almost appear duochrome under flash.

They would look really lovely on the crease or with a smoky look. Combinations are endless.

Last set of 5: Mayhem's Trilogy***, Poison Utopia, Ruthless Indulgence***, Apocolypse Pansy and Frigid Gloom***(at the bottom).

I swatches these last and didn't want to wash them off. The teal and blue colours are opaque in one swipe, so pretty. Is it just me? Lol.

In short, I am really excited about this collection. I'm sold by the swatches already and can't wait to do looks with them.

I hope my swatches are helpful for some of you. There are colour descriptions on the site, for your reference :)

I would love to hear what you think about this collection. I am not commissioned on this post, as always. All for the love of makeup. Cheers!
