Aromaleigh Lost In Faerie: Zanna and Suelita look with Swatches!

Hi there!

I recently had a little Aromaleigh haul and ordered Zanna and Suelita from the Lost in Faerie collection. They were 50% off and only cost $3.25 per 5g jar- deal!  I also ordered 3 of the clearance foundations, 3P, 4P, and 5L for only $7.50 each.  So excited to try those out as a bronzer and contouring blush duo (3P, 4P) and let me tell you, they worked out better than I was thinking they might.  I used all of these items in the look I'm posting today.  I also realized yet again my love of mineral foundation.  I've been on a liquid foundation run for a while now and after getting irritated with how wrinkly I look, suddenly I bust out my kabuki and get this velvety finish only mineral foundation gives me.  I think I'm going to start giving them more love.  I always appreciate finding a great item and re-discovering it, like, "Oh yeeeah, that's why I loved you so much!"

Let me admit though, I have such a thing for pearlized purple eyeshadows- I have more purple than any other shade in my stash.  Okay, maybe not more than taupe or neutrals, but for a color- Purple is my favorite.  So the two I'm focusing on are right up my purple alley.  That sounded bad.  Erm...Hope you enjoy these pretty eyeshadows as much as I did.  Aromaleigh always has top notch products and after years of ordering, I'm as pleased as ever.

Take a look at Zanna (a rosy shimmering plum) and Suelita (pink champagne sparkle)-

Each jar comes with 1.2g of product, ingredients listed on the jar (as shown above) and each one comes sealed with a sifter.  Below is the product photo from Aromaleigh for the Lost in Faerie collection these two shades are part of.  I want pretty much all of them but I have a special love for #1 :)

Zanna (bottom right shade)- described as "a lush midtone mauve/rose with green and aqua sparks"
