Since the sweet JJ9103 sent me samples of the lovely Aromaleigh Holiday 2008 LE Kit, I decided to play with those colors today. She also sent me a MAC Passionately Red Viva Glam 3 Warm Lips palette, which was a very sweet and unexpected surprise! Needless to say, I had fun playing with makeup today. Thank you Krista for the lovely surprise!

I really love Wintergreen! This is a gorgeous green! Butterscotch is a really nice neutral, too. I was able to capture the hints of red iridescence in it. And of course, Mulberry is a pretty soft purple!
I’m of the opinion that doing a green smoky eye would be great for the holidays. Pairing a green such as Wintergreen up with a silver color, such as Aromaleigh’s Fume or Urban Decay’s Vapor will be a lovely holiday eye. Speaking of the holidays, you should hop over to my etsy shop Ornate Oddities and check out the items there, as they would make great stocking stuffers or gifts
I’m in love with the Viva Glam VI lustre. I never thought that terracotta plum would be so pretty, but I think it’s incredibly flattering on me.
I had fun trying Bare Escentuals Magic Wand Brushless Mascara in Black today, too. I really like how my lashes look today. What do you think?
Do you like the Aromaleigh holiday colors? Do you like the MAC holiday lip palette?
I’d love to hear your thoughts!

The overall look is GREAT! Your lashes look amazing – so glad you found a mascara you dig =)
I also love your lip combo; I’m usually too lazy to wear multiple colors together but I love the effect.
Love the wintergreen with your eyes, so gorgeous.
I have heard mixed reviews about the BE mascara and I am glad you are having a positive experience with it. From what I heard application is slightly different and something you need to get used to.
that is such a beautiful look on you…I love how you used the green shadow…this set is so beautiful and I really love the mulberry. It is such a pretty purple…you look flawless…I am speachless…..
I just started playing with the lip palette to see what I could come up with. The colors work together very nicely.
The brushless mascara is a little weird, but I think it works for me. I always brush from the bottom of my lashes up. I rarely try to coat the top of my lashes, because then I end up getting the mascara all over my eyelid. This brush, you coat from the bottom up, and then sort of turn it sideways to get inbetween if you need more mascara. Then I used a spoolie (or whatever they're called, looks kinda like a mascara wand) to separate and help finish coating the mascara. I like the overall effect
Thank you I love the green, it's so pretty! Yes, the mulberry is a very pretty soft purple.
I was pleasantly surprised by how nice my look turned out. I feel very pretty today :> Thank you so much!
