Opulent Lustre swatches: Aromaleigh


Above are the Opulent Lustre eyeshadows from Aromaleigh. I swatched them on bare skin, foiled with water (no primer, these don't really need it). The shot was taken indoors, natural light, without flash.


Below is where these colours shine! Literally! I took this photo outdoors in afternoon sunlight. These shadows remind me of the rainbow if it were mixed with pearl dust. They all are shimmery, full colour, and at the same time are very soft.


My favorites in this are: Cloud, Cypress, Tamarind, and Dragonfly.


Here's my comparison chart. On the left are the Aromaleigh website swatches you see as you choose to purchase. On the right in the blocks are my swatches. These colours are not as deep as the Aromaleigh site portrays them. I think it was done dark so you could distinguish the basic shade. I would lighten what you see on AL's site and add a pearly shimmer to get a true sense of what the colour would be.


Don't forget! 35% off until Aromaleigh closes! Enter Adieu35 upon checkout.


Thanks for looking and happy shopping!

Thanks, Tianne-Marie! I've found your swatches SO helpful! It's really difficult to tell what some colours look like just based on the website's photos. I was really surprised when my Opulent samples came... I was expecting something completely different. That having been said... they're still so beautiful!

Hi Corbyjane! Oh I love these too and they're tricky aren't they? I'm glad my swatches could help.
