Aromaleigh Sol Invictus Swatches : Part 2

I really should never say "I'll have the rest of this up tomorrow" when I don't have the follow up post completely done. However, after a few more days, here is part 2 of the Aromaleigh Sol Invictus swatches!

My opinions on these six shadows are pretty much the same as the first six that I posted with one exception. The shade Opalia was a bit funky for me and after searching on Google, it looks like it was an issue for other people as well. I'll talk about it more below, so keep scrolling to see the swatches!

All swatches done over Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy and shot with daylight bulbs

Aureum: "A richly shimmering soft warm gold with color traveling sparkles of gold/green and red/violet."

Luxuriae Maniae: "An imperial purplish mauve with chestnut tones and a strong and sparkling color traveling duochrome effect that ranges from gold, bronze and copper." 

I do have to say that I wore this to Ulta the other day and the cashier asked me all about it because she thought that the shadow was so amazing...

Munera: "A rich taupe-y shade with brilliant aqua/gold/copper sparkles. If you foil this color, or rub it in to your lips or cheeks, it also leans to the rosy side!"

Opalia: "A delicate opalescent pink with bountiful pink to blue color shift. This color would be a perfect shade for highlighting the brow, or even on the cheeks or to add shimmer to the lips!"

Ok, now for more info on this shade. I've read other's opinions on this shade as well and it seems like we all feel the same way about it. This shade is mostly glitter and not a lot of base, so it applies a bit patchy on its own. If it were layered over something, it would look much, much better.

Unchained Revelry: "A gorgeous berry shade that shifts to a softly metallic copper, with brilliant iridescent fuchsia and blue sparkles and copper iridescence."

Um. Hai. Gorgeous.

Sigillaria: "A gorgeously rich amber which is slightly metallic and having a spectacular amount of strong aqua and fuchsia sparklies."

My overall opinion on the collection is wow. If you like metallic and glittery shadows, this collection is definitely something for you to look into. I have a fairly healthy love affair for all things matte, but I also love shadows that catch the eye and are special... which is exactly what these are. The colors are incredibly unique and I think it's safe to say that I don't have anything like these in my collection. Every shade is multifaceted and aside from Opalia, they apply smoothly and opaquely. Definitely a collection to pick up!

  1. I put Opalia over Fyrrinae Pixie Epoxy today, and the coverage was great!
