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!
