Aromaleigh March 2015 Ephemera - Swatches and Review

The theme for Aromaleigh's March Ephemera box was Norse mythology.  A sample of Ragnarok was snuck into our box last month and it was gorgeous.  Before I get to swatching, I have to commend Aromaleigh on their packaging and attention to detail.  I love how the ribbon they wrapped the box with and packaging paper/worms inside the box correspond with the colors we received.  I also appreciate the label art showing the eyeshadow/product names.  It's these little things that really pull everything together.  I also knew I would love these colors because I really love fall/nature colors; I'm a huge fan of deep greens, browns, and reds.

Valhalla:  white gold with blue sparkles.  I used all the eyeshadows for an eye look with Valhalla as my inner corner highlight and got a few compliments :)

Yggdrasil:  moss green with gold and red sparkles

Ragnarok:  red brown with green, orange, and gold shimmers

Valkyrie (over bare skin)
Valkyrie:  beautiful medium pink blush.  This is gorgeous and blendable.  I actually picked up too much during my first use and ended up with super pink cheeks.  Curse you, bathroom lighting!

Daydreams:  sheer gloss with strong pink sheen, would make good topper over another color; mint scented

Sneak peek!
Sneak peek!:  gorgeous plum with green sheen

Carina:  shimmery violet base with strong blue sheen.  This is a sample from the upcoming nebula inspired collection.  I'm a huge fan and can't wait for its release!  I have some similar shades in my stash mainly because I like science/space themed eyeshadows and this is a popular combo.  Aromaleigh's formula is great though and took no effort for the blue sheen to show.

Daylight:  Valhalla, Yggdrasil, Ragnarok, Valkyrie, Daydreams, Sneak Peek, Carina

Overall, this month's box was a HUGE hit with me!  Aromaleigh's eyeshadow formula is already great; pair that with awesome colors makes it a perfect combo.  All the shades in the box worked extremely well together and I loved how wearable the blush was.  Both samples I got were also gorgeous and pigmented.  I'm excited to see the theme for next month and for the release of the Galactic collection.  Hopefully, there will be some overstock products from this month and you can pick some up!
