Aromaleigh Sonic Rocks Swatches

So as you may have seen from my last post featuring my first Aromaleigh haul i bought a lot of the Sonic Rocks eyeshadows. These differ from Aromaleigh's other eyeshadows as they are not entirely mineral based, as a result you can get some really bright, neon colours in mattes, shimmers and glitters.
The Rocks shadow formula is being reformulated so currently you can get 35% off, also Aromaleigh are having a 20% off everything sale to celebrate the owner, Kristen, finally getting to have her honeymoon (http://blog.aromaleigh.com/blog/2010/02/aromaleigh-is-closing-shop-.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+MissKsAromaleighBlog+(Miss+K%27s+Aromaleigh+Blog)) , so in total you can get 55% off Rocks shadows right now :)
Here are swatches of all the colours i currently have. They are all named after songs which meant that as i swatched i kept irritating Claire by singing the namesakes :P Come on everyone! I'm an alligator! I'm a mumma-papa coming for yoooouuuu...

Heart of Glass, Helter Skelter, Peekaboo, Suspect Device, Pretty Vacant, Coral Fang

  1. wow, you got a lot!
    I think i need to go make another order.

  2. 8 more arrived yesterday and they were ordered before the honey20 code and I forgot Googoomuck so my brain is saying BUY BUY BUY DUMMY BUY!

  3. So much pretty!! Haha I nearly have the whole collection now XD But I see a few more I want now!

    Do you get stained from them, though? I wore coralfang to work on Sunday and it's Tuesday and my lids are STILL orange!!!

  4. Need to place an order... I see colours that I can't believe I don't have D:

  5. Holy guacamole missy! Did you buy the whole range or what? =D (I totally approve, by the way.)

    I'm waiting for my Rocks! order to arrive. I only got ten, though. So I'll have thirteen all in all.

    Ooh. That's unlucky. Maybe I should buy more?

    Re: Lisa Kate's comment: Yeah, I've found that Helter Skelter stains my eyelids as well, but it does go away with some extra cleansing effort (or just after a couple of days...) and you can apply eyeshadow to cover it. It doesn't bother me very much.

  6. I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE AL! Specially rocks!
    My fav is googoomuck!
    Some colors from rocks! stain my eyes, but I don't really mind. The only stain I can't stand is lip stain!

  7. Argh I want Blue Orchid and Estranged, but am trying to stick to my no-buy right now :(

  8. you don't get 55% off. it's 48.8%

    and if those pigments you said were not mixed properly, you should get them replace. They should not be like that!

  9. actually sorry, i was wrong. it was 52%, not 48.8 or 55

  10. I was sure I ordered boiling point and then I realized I don't have it... thanks for the swatches, it made me realize I must have it! And peekaboo!

  11. Zoë Danger Awesome:
    Well i'm sharing it with Claire so it's not as big as it seems... but it is still a lot :P

    Ha ha ha! Googoomuck is gorgeous and they're so cheap now you must buy! :P

    Lisa Kate:
    I want the whole collection too! And full sizes of all the ones i only got samples of! :P
    Not all of them stain me but some of them do, particularly the pinks, reds and corals. I don't really mind but it can be a little bit irritating.

    Ha ha! I'm a terrible enabler :P

    Not the WHOLE range, just the majority of it :P Some of them are samples though and i need full sizes now XD

    I love googoomuck too, it's gorgeous!
    I'm like you, i don't really mind the stain usually :)

    They're sooo bright!

    I'm meant to be on a No-Buy too, but they're on sale so i may find myself failing :P

    It was only 2 shadows and as i'm overseas it would be a really big hassle to get them replaced, if i had to send them back it would cost me more money.
    How did you work out that it's not 55% off? I'm terrible at maths. But if it's 35% off rocks and 20% off on top of that how does it end up at 52%? So confusing! :P

    Ha ha ha! You must get it then, it's gorgeous. And on sale! :P Peekaboo is beautiful.

  12. YourAhhh! Awesome swatches. They actually inspired me to hurry up and get my order through with already. Hehehe. I love the Rocks! Though I find someone of them have a bit too much fallout for my taste and prefer the texture of some of the other Aromaleigh shadows better. So glad they're being reformulated :)

    BUT I went ahead and placed an order for 6 full sizes that I've been needing to get! Hah!

    Blackangel, Planetearth (favorite blue eyeshadow EVERRRR), Moonagedaydream, Helterskelter, Psycho-candy, and Estranged.

    You've got a really great collection going already though. Yay for BRIGHTNESS!

  13. I totally just ordered a couple shadows because of this blog post.. Thank you!
