Aromaleigh Cosmetics Fatalis Collection Swatches

Around Halloween, Aromaleigh Cosmetics teased the indie world with their upcoming intense duochrome collection using expensive pigments.  The collection, Fatalis, was based off colorful poisonous plants and animals.  The collection was priced a bit higher because of how much more the pigments cost to purchase.  I bought all the eyeshadows in sample baggies and several of the face powders and a full sized tinted lip balm.

Overall, the Fatalis eyeshadows are pretty, but definitely overhyped.  I've walked around the house with the swatches in various lighting and saw a duochrome effect in only a few of the shadows.  They also have a grittier texture and don't adhere very well to the skin unless over a sticky base like glitter adhesives or cream bases.  I definitely would not recommend only wearing these over regular primer because it wouldn't bring out their best form.  I did really enjoy the tinted lip balm though.  The scent is wonderful and it gives me such a great color with minimal effort.  The Fatalis collection will be retiring in December, so there's still a bit of time to purchase it.  I would definitely suggest looking through various blog swatches to pick out the few that really call to you, but I am glad I got to try the whole collection as samples before committing to a larger size.

Update November 17th, 2015
I will no longer be purchasing from Aromaleigh because of the happenings detailed in Working With Monolid's blog post here.  We have both experienced retaliation from the shop after posting our respective swatches and reviews of the Fatalis collection and do not wish to support them any longer.
