Aromaleigh Diavoli Collection Swatches: Part 2

Aromaleigh Diavoli Swatches

Here's part 2 of the sadly currently discontinued Diavoli collection from Aromaleigh, however it'll be back again on the 15th September this year so you can grab some of these truly stunning shades! 

These were all purchased on the Aromaleigh site, by me. Swatches were done over Smashbox 24hr Primer on the left and Darling Girl Glitter Glue on the right and photographed in natural light (or as best as I could do). The colour descriptions in italics are from the Aromaleigh site, if I feel it's warranted I'll add my own comments in normal font.

Aromaleigh Draghignazzo Swatch

Draghignazzo - "A fascinating shade when it comes to trying to describe it. In some lighting, it appears to have a deep taupe plush matte base. In other light, this base appears more grey. But what you can’t deny is the very strong blue to green to teal color traveling duochrome effect, which sometimes even appears a bit purplish at certain angles!"

Aromaleigh Farfarello Swatch

Farfarello - "A muted brownish/mauve plush matte base with a gorgeous metallic copper lowlight and a very strong red to violet color traveling duochrome effect."
This one has a really subtle shift which can be difficult to see and even harder to get a picture of.

Aromaleigh Graffiacane Swatch

Graffiacane - "A deep warm brown plush matte base with an intense color traveling duochrome effect that ranges from gold to chatreuse green."
This is stunning and reminds me of a darker more brown version of Femme Fatale Candied Apple (one of my all-time favourite duochrome shades!)

Aromaleigh Libicocco Swatch

Libicocco - "A greyed violet plush matte base with metallic copper undertones and a strong copper to red to violet color-traveling duochrome effect."
This shade has a very subtle shift as it's mostly copper, but it is beautiful all the same, I need to swatch this over glitter glue next to Geek Chic Antequarian (another favourite) to see how they compare, especially as Antequarian is discontinued. 

Aromaleigh Malacoda Swatch
(sparkle shot)

Malacoda - "A deep purplish taupe plush matte base with an intense color-traveling duochrome effect that ranges from copper to green to aqua." 

As I mentioned earlier these shades are currently unavailable but they shall return many other shadows as well as blushes and face powder can be found over at the Aromaleigh website.

Samples cost $1.00
Full sizes are $6.50
The full collection is $13.00 as sample sizes and $84.50 full size.

    1. They really are! Aromaleigh make some awesome pigments. Working with loose shadows can be a bit of a hassle though, especially when you first start.
