Aromaleigh Insectarium Collection

Aromaleigh Insectarium Collection Vol 1, Vol 2, Contours & More - Review, Swatches

Today I’m sharing the Aromaleigh Insectarium Collection with you. The Insectarium Collection is inspired by colorful beetles. The contour powders are inspired by moths. I have Insectarium Vol. 1, Vol. 2, and the contour powders. I’ve also got some Fatalis Nourishing Lip Creams, highlighters, blushes and other eyeshadows too.

Aromaleigh Insectarium Collection

Aromaleigh is a small indie company located in South Carolina. All of her products are artisan made in small batches in the USA. They’re all cruelty free and many products are vegan.

All products swatched on Too Faced Shadow Insurance eyeshadow primer. For the extra sparkly shades, I also used Darling Girl Glitter Glue.

The way I recommend wearing the Insectarium eyeshadows on hooded eyes like mine is with a sticky base on the lid and lower lid. Pair with a bright or neutral matte crease, depending on your mood.

What do you think of these eyeshadows? How would you wear them?
