Aromaleigh Indie Makeup Brand Review

Aromaleigh is an indie beauty brand that, instead of focusing on illegal intellectual property ideas for products, the owner has focused on a lot of historical, scientific, and nature based collections, which I find endearing. Sure, sometimes I struggle to pronounce the names of products, but I think that for a lot of scientists, they probably enjoy seeing scientific names. I personally love the goddess names the most.

I just want to touch briefly on Aromaleigh pricing. Foundation samples are $2.25, and foundation jars range from $7 to $16 to $38 depending on the size. Cheek product samples are $2, mini jars are $7, and full size are $14. Eye shadow samples range from $1.25 sample baggie, $3.50 for a mini jar and $7.25 for a full size. These prices vary based on which collection. The lip balms are $4.75, the lip color cremes are $7, and the glosses are $12.99.

Aromaleigh has frequent sales, and if you’re a new customer you can use the coupon code of WELCOME10 to save $10 off your order of $30+ There’s free shipping for orders in the USA that are $75+. Gifts with purchase are also included with orders of $15+.

How I discovered Aromaleigh was I was looking for mineral makeup foundation that matched my skintone.

Some of her collections are the Six Wives of Henry VIII, Appalachian Wonder, Birds of a Feather, Goddess collection, Norse Saga, Mythos, Fatalis, Insectarium, the Color of the Year Capsule Collection, and the 25th Anniversary collection.

Final Thoughts

Overall, I love that Aromaleigh is a creative artisan handmade indie brand with extremely affordable pricing. I’ve been watching drugstore makeup climb up in price to where Nyx is now selling a primer for $20. Indie brands rarely seem to raise prices, even to keep up with inflation.

Aromaleigh Color Creme lip products are something I think more people should take note of. If you’re in love with the Merit Signature lipsticks, which are $26, the Aromaleigh Color Cremes are $7. They both offer nourishing ingredients for the lips with color. I believe these may be dupes.

And I can’t gush enough about the cheek products. I love a glowy lit from within blush with an otherworldly ethereal highlighter glow in rainbow hues. Aromaleigh creates so many products to help me create that type of look I love! If you love this too, I think you’ll love Aromaleigh.

What do you think of Aromaleigh? Have you tried their products?

More to See


  1. Fantastic review of my favorite makeup company! I’ve used Aromaleigh for around 20 years now and her quality and creativity continues to exceed expectations!

  2. What a great review! I’ve loved Aromaleigh for many years. This post was so informative and the swatches are fantastic. Thank you so much!

    1. I love Aromaleigh products, particularly her matte eyeshadow collection, and her color cremes. One of the first red lipsticks I actually loved came from her, God Send Me Well to Keep, from the Six Wives collection.

  3. Wow! Excellent article, Cordelia!! I’m also a long time user and fan- so excited to see this sort of renaissance of Aromaleigh!

  4. I’ve always loved this brand it’s my go to for sparkles ✨️. Always have amazing interactions with this brand ❤️❤️

  5. I have been using Aromaleigh makeup for 20 years. It is my favorite brand. There are so many different eye shadow colors to choose from and the collections are just so creative. The prices really are affordable, particularly for the amount of product that you get. I love being able to order the individual colors that I want. When I used to buy palettes from a retailer, I was always stuck with a lot of shades that I didn’t like and it felt like a waste of money. The sample baggies are wonderful because you are able to try new looks without spending much money. Each sample baggie of eyeshadow has enough for several applications, which is a wonderful deal, whether you want to experiment or you need a particular color for an event or holiday. It is an amazing brand that is owned and operated by one amazing woman.

    1. I love to hear about long-time fans! 20 years is a long time to be loyal to a brand. I totally agree with you about how nice it is that you don’t have to buy a palette and end up with shades you’ll never use.

  6. Aromaleigh products are fantastic. The color ranges for eyes, cheeks, lips are incredible. Everything I’ve ever ordered (and that is a LOT LOL) is high quality at a very reasonable price. As a performer I need shades that are intense and eye catching. As someone with super sensitive skin I need products that are free of fillers, additives and other irritants. Aromaleigh fits the bill beautifully. That it is a woman owned, small indie brand seals the deal for me.

  7. I have been in love with Aromaleigh for over a decade now. I don’t usually wear eyeshadow on a day to day basis, but I still have quite a collection of her eyeshadows because the colors are so beautiful. I do usually wear blush, though, and Aromaleigh has a lot to offer there, as well as a wonderful selection of highlighters (which I mainly use on my eyelids when I do want a subtle shadow). I am currently excited to finally try a lip product (an absolutely beautiful lipgloss called Red Fleur) that was created for the Viva Magenta capsule collection. I always go back to Aromaleigh for my cosmetics and I highly recommend this brand for having great customer service and gorgeous products (as well as a lovely owner/creator who runs a very friendly Facebook group around her brand).
