Yesterday, I received a sample set of Aromaleigh's Astronomical collection to review on my blog (thank you, Miss K!). Since I hosted my annual cookie exchange last night, I was thrilled to have some new colors to wear for the evening. The three colors I chose for this look worked very well together and I'll be adding full sizes of them to my makeup collection very soon.
Dark Matter is my favorite so far. It's highly pigmented, shimmery without being overly frosty and feels rich and luxurious. To my eyes it has a mid tone taupe brown base with copper overtones and tiny aurora borealis sparkles.
The shadows are high quality and have great staying power. I feel asleep watching t.v. last night without washing my face first (I hate it when I do that) and woke up this morning with my entire eye shadow look still in tact.
