Aromaleigh Ravenstag

When I first saw this color swatched, I knew I must have it.  Ravenstag is a gorgeous and complex deep charcoal with multi-colored shimmer of green, violet, and teal.  Pretty much every color I just adore embedded in a gorgeous smoky base.  This is the type of shade that will lean a certain way depending on what color you pair it with; not unlike eyes that change from blue to green depending on your shirt or shadow that day.   In this look, I paired it with purple so it really complimented the green sparks in this shade.   If paired with a green or teal, it would probably appear more violet.
