Happy Holly-Day!

Aromaleigh released another new collection, making that the third for the newly relaunched company. Holly-Days is the holiday themed collection, inspired by vintage holiday images.

From left to right: Naughty or Nice, Secret Santa, Faux Eva’ Green, and More Fruitcake

naughty or nice: a frosted slate cocoa taupe with festive sparks of gold and violet.

secret santa: a warm mid-toned pinky mauve with an aurora borealis of highlight shimmers.

faux eva’green: heathery evergreen frost with a smokey lowlight and with fine subtle colorful glimmer.

more fruitcake?: fruity pumpkin frost with a hint of coral… accented with bright sparks of gold and red.

From left to right: Midnight Mess, Just Be-Claus, Snowglobe, and Poison Pointsetta

midnight mess: the darkest purple-indigo toned black with frosted pewter tones and a myriad of sparkle that defies the rainbow.

just be-claus: not your ordinary hot chocolate. This warm mid-toned cocoa frost sparkles with prismatic joy.

snowglobe: The perfect frosty white frost with bright sparks of green floating throughout…

poison pointsettia: Saturated like bright rubies and garnets, a smooth, softly metallic frost with brilliant sparkls of bright blue.

From left to right: Missign Batteries, It’s My Party, Peace On ?, Little Green Elves

missing batteries: a cool chocolate brown frost with more shiny diamond shimmer than missing batteries at Chriustmas.

it’s MY party: perfection in a warm purple frost with contrasting green and aqua shimmy and shine.

peace on ?: perfectly peaceful peachy frost with the brilliance of bright gold and pink sparkles.

little green elves: a neutral heathered greenish greyish frost, with hints of khaki and surprising violet and green sparkkle.

From left to right: Uncorked, Down the Chomney, Pass the Grogg, and Glisten’ in

uncorked: medium-toned warm buff mauve-pink fizzy with sparks of champagne pink, brilliant gold and red.

down the chimney: soot and ash has never been so lovely. A cool toned smooth grey frost with bright green sparks and soft golden highlight shimmer.

pass the glogg: neutral perfect light-midtoned buff beige with hints of pink and showers of sparkling radiance.

glisten’ in!: warm gold, softly metallic frost with hot sparkles of gold and pink.

I got full sizes in Poison Pointsetta and Just Be-Claus.  I’m probably going to go back and order Uncorked, Down the Chimney, and Naughty or Nice as well!  I really like this collection, it’s has a variety of wearable shades with a few different finishes.  What do you think?

  1. Wow these colors are amazing!! Poison Pointsetta looks like it would be just a perfect match for that ugly Christmas sweater I’ve been craving!

  2. Every one of these colours is pretty! I’m so glad I got the sample set. I can see I’m going to need full sizes of some of these.

  3. I’m on a white/interference shadow kick right now. I like Snowglobe best.

  4. I’m not sure if I’d wear Poison Pointsettia but it looks awesome.

  5. Gorgeous colors, I really like pass the glogg and naughty or nice

  6. Wow, so pretty! My favorite is More Fruitcake. I love all the names!

  7. I am just loving that midnight mess. I am on a thing about deep blues at the moment. Matches my mood!

  8. I bought Poison Pointsettia right away along with full sizes of Bellatrix and Betelgeuse. Ah, you enabler.

  9. Down the Chimney looks quite blue to my eye in your swatch though the AL picture does look quite grey; would you say it’s more grey or blue in reality?

  10. Wow! The difference between your swatches and the ones on Av2’s site is pretty drastic. I ordered several of these the other day and I guess I’ll just be surprised with I get them!

    • The AL site’s were done in direct sunlight, mine with an OTT light, so they would naturally be a little different.

  11. I want a whole shwackload of these, even more than originally planned seeing your swatches but I would get so screwed over by Canada Post by having to make so many orders because of the $40 international price limit. Those asshats actually charge $8.50/package just for touching the thing and then tax it up the butt. Boourns. I wouldn’t mind it if we had like, the bestest post office in the world, but seeing as it takes 3-4 weeks sometimes to get stuff from across the border? HAH! They should be paying me $8.50 to deal with them lol
    Sorry, in a ranty mood now…

  12. Poison Pointsetta looks fantastic! perfect name for it too.

  13. these colors are gorgeous.

  14. I do like these, but some of their recent tweets have put me off ordering from Aromaleigh V2 for now.
