I get alot of compliments when I wear this duo. The purple pink color is truly unique and I haven't found anything close to it. The shimmery peachy gold is nice, but the fallout is a pain. I wish the glitter was a little more refined and stuck to your eye better ( it still fell off even with a base). When I use this duo i get a natural look but with a tiny bit of pop to it.

The L'Orchidee Collection is one of my favorites and Moth is a lovely standout color. Sometimes it looks purple, sometimes more gray. It depends on what you pair with it. It's more on the sheer side than some of Aromaleigh's other colors but I like that in this color. If i want to make it a little brighter in color than I will layer it over a colored cream base.

Like all Aromaleigh blushes, you have to use a light hand and a stippling or fiber optic brush to keep from going overboard. This is a beautiful Spring color for my NC30 (3N in Aromaleigh foundation) skin. The fact that it has a little shimmer helps me skip the step of using a highligher.
My favorite Lush Bubble Bar! I find that alot of them can be hit or miss in terms of quality, scent and value. This one is a hit in all catagories! I can usually get 6 uses out of 1 bar and it bubbles up so much! Love the scent too. Leaves my skin soft and moiturized from the essential oils.
Hands down the best moisturizer I have ever used. I have repurchased more times than I can count. It works wonderfully for me during all seasons. It balances my skin and creates a more even skin tone. A litttle goes a long way, I usually don't have repurchase until 3- 4 months.

This is a super bright blush that leans on the cool side. You definetly need to be careful with application as is is easy to go overboard with too much color and shimmer. Blending and buffing is a must to keep this from looking like too much. I have the full size and way too much product comes out of the sifter than I would ever need. I like the color, but I usually don't reach for it because of application issues.

In the jar the green glitter makes this a unique and flattering color. Unfortunately I have tried every primer and/or base and many different techiniques in appying it and I can not get the green glitter to stay on for more than an hour and look good. After it falls off it pretty much is a powder version of Benefit's Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in "Busy Signal".
I use this a a makeup setting spray and it works well. One spritz covers my entire face with a light mist that makes my makeup look more natural. I also carry it purse as a refreshing spray when I feel I'm getting a little oily or sweaty. I haven't tried it as an actual toner yet, as I usually don't use toners.
Wow! This is a awesome shampoo! I've never used a solid shampoo before, so I was a little hesitant to try it. My hair can be frizzy and dull at times an this brings it back to life. The bars lasts a long time (I suggest cutting it into smaller portions) if you keep dry and away from water after each use. I would get a nice later going in my hands and rub it into my wet hair adding a little more water to help get more lather. It's lathering, but no too much where you feel that your hair is being stripped. I only had to use a small amount of conditioner after words and my hair was soft and frizz free after letting it air dry. The scent of coconut is nice in the shower but doesn't linger much on the hair afterward. I use this two or three times a week, but I think it could work well as a daily shampoo.
Overall a nice color, I usually don't like frosty colors but this one works. only two gripes, I wish the packaging had a clear top and it wasn't so drying.

This color just does not work for me, the sparkle/frosty finish looks tacky. Would have gotten one lippie, but added one because if i layer MAC's Cremesheen Glass in Deelight I can wear it.
Lipstick -Revlon - Matte Lipstick - Pink About It [DISCONTINUED]

One of my new favorite colors! It is matte which I love, but like many others have said it is drying. Putting lip balm underneath easily helps but of course now it's not as matte, but still looks lovely. I apply Aromaleigh's rocks sonic lips nourishing lip tint in No Reservations first then build on top of that with Pink About It. So depending on my mood I'll wear it matte or with the lip tint.

I own the colors Ripe and Plush. I have fairly pigmented lips, so Ripe adds a little more color than Plush. I keep these in my desk at work for when I need a little touch up of color in the afternoon. They don't feel to heavy on my lips and my hair doesn't stick to them like other similar products. A little also goes a long way, and I don't have to touch up very often. They are a great deal if you can find them at the drugstore on sale( I got them at buy 1 get 1 50% off)!
This body butter is super moisturizing and lasts a long time. But.......I can't stand the scent! I've been using it up, because I don't like to waste, but the scent is just to strong for me. Someone at work even commented that my office smelled like a bath and body store and I had only used a tiny bit on my elbow.
I can understand why some people love or hate this blush. I personally love it, but it took some trial and error with the application just for me to fall in love with it. I have fair medium skin and find that the best way to apply is with my fingers and build the color up. I also tend to use it a little higher on my cheek bones ( just beyond my apples of my cheeks) blended up into my temples. I should also mention I have freckles that bring a little more attention to the blush. There is a lot of glitter, but after I have finished all of my makeup I lightly brush them off and it leaves the nice peachy color with a few of the more refined pieces of glitter left.
