Galactic: Mission 3 (multipurpose highlighters) launches 9 AM EST Black Friday!

PicMonkey Collage (1)

Galactic Mission 3 launches the morning of Black Friday at 9 AM EST, and includes 7 iridescent/glowy multipurpose highlighters inspired by the universe and galaxies.

These can be used anywhere- eyes, lips, cheeks, face… and make amazing highlighters and strobing powders. Use over different bases for different effects. These have a fine, lustrous/satin finish.

They will be available for individual purchase in the mini and full sizes (same as other cheek product sizing), and in 1/4 tsp sample baggie sets. I am unable to offer individual sample baggie purchases on these during the holiday sale rush. They will be offered after the new year, when I reopen the shop. The mini and full sizes have label art of the astronomical inspiration!

SOL INVICTUS holiday collection now orderable!

Last year’s sparkly and festive holiday collection, inspired by the Ancient Roman Saturnalia festival, is now available. I did not reformulate the collection, a high sparkle finishes such as this don’t benefit much from added emollient ingredients. The collection is now available in the deluxe sample size. Baggie samples are available only as a set.

Saturnalia was a festival of light leading to the winter solstice, with the abundant presence of candles symbolizing the quest for knowledge and truth. Most people find the word Saturnalia to be synonymous with drunken celebration, but there was so much more to this ancient festival! The renewal of light and the coming of the new year was celebrated at the Dies Natalis of Sol Invictus, the “Birthday of the Unconquerable Sun,” on December 25. Roman mythology of the Golden Age of Saturn’s reign differed from the Greek tradition. Saturn arrived in Italy “dethroned and fugitive”, but brought agriculture and civilization and became a king. As the Augustan poet Vergil described it, “he gathered together the unruly race” of fauns and nymphs “scattered over mountain heights, and gave them laws. Under his reign were the golden ages men tell of: in such perfect peace he ruled the nations.” (source: Wikipedia)

The DRYADES are back… multichromatic eyeshadows inspired by the Greek nymphs of the trees and forests

DRYADES.1150x.TEMPLATEAutumn welcomes the DRYADES collection at Aromaleigh… ten dramatic duochrome shades imbued with the tones of Fall’s splendor. Dryads and Hamadryads were the Greek nymphs of the forests and trees. These colors were all inspired by specific Dryads or groups of Dryads, and incredible classic paintings portraying them.

I rephotographed the colors during the recent shop closing, and they turned out remarkedly improved being shot with my new camera. Look at those gorgeous color shifts and complexity!

Available seasonally! –> SHOP

It’s Aromaleigh’s SEVENTEENTH anniversary! Receive “Synchrony” GWP with orders of $17+ through September!

SYNCHRONY.1150x.TEMPLATEThis September marks Aromaleigh’s seventeenth anniversary! I can’t believe it’s been that long… I suddenly feel a little bit old, but definitely not stodgy. 🙂 I admire women like Vivienne Westwood and Betsey Johnson, who are still going as strong as ever in their creative fields, not letting their age hold them back or question what they are passionately inspired by. I’ll be turning 45 on September 10th, but feel as young as ever, and that through Aromaleigh I’m producing my best creative work in almost two decades.

What’s the secret? I love what I do. I create via that which I am personally inspired by, and immerse myself in intense personal interests. It’s important for me that my work displays a unique conceptual perspective, so I always dig deeply for my collection ideas. I love color and how light interacts with and changes it. I love science and physics, and color is all part of that grand design.

For the entire month of September, orders of $17 (after discount/before shipping) will receive a GWP deluxe sample (that’s 1/4 tsp in a jar/no sifter with top label) of a gorgeous shade called “Synchrony”. it’s got a raisin-y base, with borealis sparkle and a strong overall sunny gold shimmer that will make the color appear differently depending on your application method/base.

The word “synchrony” is defined as simultaneous occurrence, and that is what I discovered when I began researching the meaning and numerological significance of the number 17. It’s a number that appears just about everywhere throughout history, religion and myth, which I found fascinating! In Numerology, the number 17 represents the Star of the Magi, which also translates into the star being represented as the 17th card of the tarot. It signifies wishes, hope,  or dreams to come true. The Star of the Magi was expressed in symbolism by the ancient Chaldeans as the 8-pointed Star of Venus, then known as Ishtar. Ishtar and her star symbol were known by many names…

I found the persistence of the number 17 amongst so many different cultures to be an uncanny synchronous occurrence, so instead of calling this special GWP “17 years of Sparkle” or something similar, I chose to call it “Synchrony”. That’s the circuitous manner in which my brain thinks (and over-thinks!). I hope you enjoy this lovely GWP, it’s even prettier in person- it has a lot going on and is very complex and thus hard to capture in camera.

SERPENS.1150x.TEMPLATE

SERPENS is a permanent eyeshadow collection inspired by Dragon lore and mythology from all around the world. We typically associate dragons with European and Norse mythology, forgetting that dragons and serpents are found in the myths of every continent and culture.

Serpens is my creative response to many requests to do a “Game of Thrones” inspired collection. While I love doing an occasional pop culture collection, my true love is history and mythology. This collection is representative of that, and I hope it fills your dragon void…

** This collection is now available in the deluxe sample size!

* Reformulated: All sizes of this shade as of the July restocking are a new and improved formula. This formula features added ingredients for adhesion and wear, which also intensify the color shifts and make it easier to wear and blend over both bare skin and a variety of primers. As always, I recommend a regular cream base such as NYX eyeshadow base. Your mileage may vary with sticky glue type primers.
