Aromaleigh Spells! Swatches

Like every other literate person on the globe, I read the entire Harry Potter series. I also laughed at the Simpsons movie calling the pig Harry Plopper and still sing the song to my kids. Which they roll their eyes and groan at. Come to think of it, I don't even really like the Simpsons. I just liked that song. HERE is the new collection from Aromaleigh (happy squealie dance here) called SPELLS!

First eight shades, from left to right are:


Incendio- brilliant orange with gold and yellow sparkle

Fidelius- gold with copper and golden sparkle *Fave

Expecto Patronum- golden green base with a hint of beige and gold and green sparkle *Fave

Lumos- yellow with fiery yellow and gold sparkle

Serpensortia- insect green yellow with gold sparkle

Nox- golden brown base with rainbow iridescent sparkle

Stupefy- muted grey blue with pink and green sparkle

Rictusempra- bronzed sienna with gold and purple sparkle

-All swatches foiled onto Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy with Elf Shadow Brush. Shots taken with Canon Powershot A540

All of these photos should click into larger, clear ones. *crosses fingers* Tell me if they don't.


Next 8 shades (out of all 25) are:

Orchideous- pearled pale beige pink with hint of pink and green shimmer

Protego- muted olive silver green with gold and green sparkle

Impervius- shamrock hued blue grey with gold and ivory shimmer *Fave

Imperio- blue purple cornflower mix with pink and purple and aqua sparkle *BEAUTIFUL

Crucio- gorgeous brick red with fiery sparkle of gold, red, and orange *MEGA FAVE

Wingardium Leviosa- pink toned brown with purple and pink sheen

Silencio- golden beige with a hint of olive sparkle

Aparecium- pine and olive green mix with copper and gold sparkle

Sorry if it's photo heavy, but I really wanted to show how pretty these are and how the sparkle shimmers in the light.

Last eight shades are:

Alohomora- metallic bronze with golden pearl

Priori Encantato- beautiful (photos don't do it justice) soft dusty brown with rainbow sparkle

Expelliarmus- what every red/brick shadow should be- rainbow effect on a deep wine and brick red base. *WOW #2 of this, favorite wise for me

Finite- creamy golden ivory with pink and purple and green sparkle (if you missed shades like Unicorn, Fiona, and Seed Pearl, try this)

Morsmordre- deep charcoal brown/blue with pink, red, green, and purple sparkle

Riddikulus- orchid purple with ivory and pink sparkle

Tarantellegra- brilliant creamy linen/ivory shade with gorgeous iridescent sparkle *FAVE of the whole collection, my numero uno

Obliviate- plum based deep violet with lavender sheen and pink sparkle

Diffindo- grass green with yellow and pink and green sparkle
And the big ol' comparison chart! This better click into a bigger photo- otherwise the quality is bad on blogger. I found these to be pretty accurate except the grey looking AL swatches (protego for example) actually look green in real life. But they are all beautiful and sophisticated. LOVE!

OMG...they are gorgeous....makes me drool. I so like the colors. the pix don't click to larger photos. Just letting you know. I really like them. The educational part on the spells was really cool. I read all the books to and I don't remember all of those spells. Kudos!

Sorry about the photos- I think I fixed them if you don't mind taking a peek again :) I love these! My fave is Tarantellegra and Crucio and Expelliarmus- WOW! I know...I had no clue there were so many. I love it though. Makes me want to read the books again.
