Happy May Day and a FOTD (p.s. this is my 100th blog post!)

Keeping in the spirit of trying all of my new Aromaleigh Le Mystere samples (the ones that are available for purchase in full sizes), here's a look using Le Mystere 107. It's very similar to Mariposa but slighter warmer and less sparkly. I would have never thought a neutral-loving girl like me would ever wear bright pink like Mariposa or Le Mystere 107 but I decided to give it a shot. The addition of Moth helped tone it down a bit and the Mocha in the crease kept it from looking too bold for my coloring. I think I'm going to grab a full size of Mariposa before the L'Orchidee collection is gone.

*All makeup is Aromaleigh unless otherwise specified.

Color Descriptions:

  • le mystere 107 - A subtly muted vintage rose-wine shade, with dimensional shimmer.
  • mariposa - Brilliant red/wine frost with shimmering red sparks of depth.
  • moth - Pale and delicate iridescent tones appear softly grey, always changing.
  • mocha - The perfect chocolatey-brown medium-hued shadow for dramatic eyes.
  • seed pearl - A most delicate neutral satin taupe with soft pastel sparkles.
  • drama red - The truest depths of bordeaux garnet with the occasional sheen of the darkest ruby.
  • sweetheart - A rich deep pink with subtle shimmer. Sure to give you a "pop" of color!
