Greens, Golds and Bronzed Plums: More Aromaleigh Looks

I am truly enjoying my sampling of Aromaleigh Pure Hue mineral shadows. I am pleasantly surprised at how easy these are to apply and blend, and the pigmentation is just beautiful and strong. I am amazed that I bought several samples of Aromaleigh Pure Hue shadows, and out of the ones I've tried so far, not one is a dud. Not one. I also loved the staying power - the pigments stayed immaculate on my eyes after a long day at work. My only gripe is the very miniscule amount of the samples, 1/16 of a teaspoon! 1/8 teaspoon would have been perfect, but, oh well, that's what you call enterprising. I'm just going to save and use my samples up to the last crumb/smidgen.

Hi! I happened to find your web site when I was looking for any reviews about Monave lips. And I love this site!!! Your FOTDs are really awesome. Especially I like your eye make-up. I envy you cause you have so beautiful eyes. The golden brown colors are very good on you. I am from Japan. MMU lovers seems increasing.. but not so much information. Most of people have a hard time to read the English articles or blogs like here. So, can I introduce some of your reviews - partly translated in Japanese on my blog ??? I will be happy if you agree on my proposal. Thanks.
