“The Spring Equinox collection evokes the awakening of color as the doldrums of winter begin to fade away. Fresh new life springs forth, budding flowers and trees. The ice melts, the chill leaves the air. Spring is finally here! “
On March 21st, the Spring Equinox occurs. The first day of Spring. On this day, daytime and nighttime are of equal length, and the days begin to grow longer, and brighter. The darkness of winter hastens. The Spring Equinox has been celebrated by mankind for thousands of years. Even the earliest civilizations kept track of the seasons and stars, to help plan their planting and gathering schedules. For many different societies, this day marked the end of winter and the approach of spring, fertility, and fresh food.
*** THESE ARE AROMALEIGH v2 2013 VERSIONS OF THIS PREVIOUS v1 COLLECTION. SHADES MAY NOT BE EXACT MATCHES TO THOSE PURCHASED BEFORE! Samples are recommended. We have done our best to match shades for this collection, but in many cases the pigments previously used are NOT available, so we have to approximate.
These shades are ultra-smooth, rich and highly pigmented. Photographs don’t even start to capture the intensity and inter-play of the pigments, lowlights and highlights within these shades. These are incredibly complex, unique colors!
