Aromaleigh Ephemera - June 2015

What is it?: Aromaleigh Ephemera is a monthly indie subscription box for makeup. You can also buy from their makeup lines that are released regularly. Their lines are based on mythology, history, literature, etc and they make some gorgeous colors with amazing finishes. See my past Aromaleigh Ephemera reviews here.

How much is it?: $17.99 with shipping to the US.


The artwork was drawn by someone else familiar to me, the creator of innocent+twisted!




Info card.


Everything looks so pretty and the artwork is to die for!

Without flash.

Lamentation (Blush Glow) - Beautiful as a blush on pale skin-tones, or as a highlighter on deeper tones. Lamentation looks very vivid, but don't be afraid. It's a gorgeous vibrant warm pink with a strong violet glow. (lip and cheek safe)
This is a very vibrant pink, but it didn't look at all like I thought it was going to. I'm still a fan of the corals I have from past boxes, but this is one I will still use! It will be used lightly, but it will still be used.

Melusine (Eyeshadow) - Tauped plum with a vivid iridescent gold/chartreuse/green shift. (eye only)
I see more of the taupe than the plum, but the shimmer is amazing. It's bright and the light picks up all of the shift in one look.

Tres Faulse Serpente (Eyeshadow) - Muted teal frost with iridescent teal/green shift and violet sparks. (eye only)
I expected something much darker based on first look, but I was pleasantly surprised at the swatch. The teal is only barely noticeable, but it matches nicely with the violet bits.

Bain enchantee (Eyeshadow) - Lustrous, pale silvered heather with a myriad of borealis microshimmer. (eye only)
This is my favorite of this box, that's a definite. It's pinky without being too pink and that little bit of green shift in the shimmer sets it off perfectly!

Extras included Spectre de la Nuit and Dark Mermaid, a new lip gloss!

It was another great month for Aromaleigh and I ended up with some brand new colors for my collection! Next month's theme hint is 'He was born on July 10, 1856 and the world is a very different place thanks to his genius.' I know what it means, but do you? As always, let me know what you thought about this in the comments!
