Happy Wednesday! Today I have something non-nail related, but just as fabulous. I have a stunning, sparkling find for you guys today. In the past few weeks, I seemed to have replaced my nail polish addiction with a mineral make-up addiction. This is not just any mineral make-up, it is Aromaleigh. I am sure most of you have heard of Aromaleigh before, but I swear I must have been living under a rock for the last few years because I only recently discovered this gem. I think I could go broke with all of the amazing and different color of eyeshadows. Not to mention all of their choices for blush, foundation, concealer, lipstick, balm, tints, & cremes-oh my!
My history with mineral make-up is well, I didn't like it. All the swirling and tapping. Not to mention it gets in every single nook and cranny on my face making me look years older than I am. That's just the foundation, the eyeshadows never stay put. Within an hour of doing my make up, the shadow disapears never to be seen again. I have tried every nearly brand out there, big names, no names, name your own, and what was that- baby powder with glitter? But then one day I was lurking around Fresco Phyrra, which a great place for make-up tips, tricks, and tutorials, and she was using Aromaleigh. Once I hit the link, I was transported to a a mineral make-up wonderland.
I'm one of those one's that goes for the About Us button first and looks at the product next. What I found was an amazing woman named Kristen. She is a pioneer in the mineral make-up industry. She's dedicated, positive, and honest. I get the best vibe from reading her blog and her tweets. Oh, and she finds the most amazing photographs. Needless to say, I had to try her product. I went the safe route and ordered samples. There are over 400 eyeshadows to choose from, making for a pretty difficult decision. They have matte, and shimmer, and frost, and glitter, and so on. Once I finally decided on a few samples, upon check-out, I was asked for 3 more samples to try! Customer service was fabulous. I had my samples in 2 days. When it said sample, I expected enough for 1, maybe 2 applications. Wrong! Aromaleigh samples are enough for several applications. You definatly get to try them a bunch of times to see if the color is right for you.
What a beautiful assortment of eyeshadows!
Well, then I went back for more. More eyeshadow samples, foundation samples, Eyeliner Sealant, and full size Moth.
And I just can't stop, I ordered more on Saturday!
The shadows I've tried stay put! I was leary about using them until I found a good primer, but I'm not one to wait. To my delight, an hour later, I still had shadow on and several hours later, I still had shadow on and still no creasing! And, I found the color that I have been searching for for a few years. Mink Coat is a beautiful taupe-pink with shimmer and my next full size purchase.
The prices are really affordable and they always have great sales and discount codes. Bottom line, I am in love with Aromaleigh. Miss K has made me believer in mineral make-up. So grab a cup of coffee (and your credit card) and check out Aromaleigh!
