Aromaleigh samples + eco bag haul

Another first with Aromaleigh! And I think it's the start of something good. I like how they shipped out fast, that their international shipping fee is okay ($5 for orders under $40), and that they gave out some freebies. The local post office was very good and delivered these to my house, got 'em 11 days after ordering.

My AL samples (click on the pics to see them in bigger size):

Ultra resolution finishing powder in English rose, Translucent, and Peaches and cream. I LOVE Translucent!

Illuminating Perle Powder in Afterglow and Mirage. Afterglow is really not that scary dark in actual, Mirage is a tiny bit lighter too.

Gothic Lolita Rouges in Dolly, Corset, and Rococo. These are amazingly pigmented. A few tiny specks are all I need so these will go a long way with me.

Glissade foundations in 3W and 3WL. I chose the wrong shades- 3WL is too brownish/pinkish on me, and 3W I haven't tried yet but looking at the bag it looks too light. Hope it looks better on.

Twilight Supernatural Face and Body Powder in Sparkle (super curious how this would look like on my skin), and these 2 came for free (yay!): Eye Lustre in Kiki, and Pure Eyes Frost in Mocha.

Kiki and Mocha swatched.

I put Sparkle on my hand here but you won't see it unless you click the pic :) I'll be getting the 2 other Twilight Supernatural Face and Body Powders next time (Lustre and Dazzle).

Samples of Color Infusion Botanical Lipsticks and and 1 Gothic Lolita Nourishing Color Creme: Karma (another freebie), Pinafore (this is the Gothic Lolita one), Sassy, Coquette, and Crush. These all go on really sheer...they're not really like lipsticks, but more like liptints or tinted balms.
Very wearable colors plus they don't dry out my lips.

Tip: visit their coupon + deals page as well as the new at aromaleigh page before ordering. You'll see items on sale, and applicable coupon codes for your order. I used FIRSTORDER since of course this my (duh) first order, which took $5 off the total.

And my newest eco bag. I'm guilty of forgetting to bring my eco bags with me when I go out and shop. Must remember to put them in my bag before going out!

Mama Earth Canvas Bag. All wrinkled from being folded up in the package. Got it from Indigo Manila where I regularly purchase my baby's bath and body and other items. I cannot get enough of their products, they're heaven-sent for nursing moms like me and for those who prefer all-natural products for their babies (or for themselves).

How 'bout you, what's your favorite Aromaleigh product?

Do you use eco bags when you go shopping?

I've been wanting to try AL's URFP for the longest time. Does it really give a flawless look? thanks.

Ida said...

yup! i think it softens the appearance of my fine lines and pores. didn't change the color of my foundie either, and no white cast :)
