Galactic is a permanent collection of space-themed duochrome eyeshadows. The visual inspirations for the colors are exquisite color composite imagery from NASA- Hubble, Spitzer, JPL, etc.

Color Description: Aquila is a vivid teal green with a gold duochrome shift. Inspired by the Pillars of Creation, in the Eagle nebula. ("Aquila" is Latin, for eagle) (NASA, ESA, STScI, J. Hester and P. Scowen (Arizona State University)

(Source: Wikipedia) The Eagle Nebula (catalogued as Messier 16 or M16, and as NGC 6611, and also known as the Star Queen Nebula and The Spire) is a young open cluster of stars in the constellation Serpens, discovered by Jean-Philippe de Cheseaux in 1745-46. Its name derives from its shape that is thought to resemble an eagle. It contains several active star-forming gas and dust regions, including the famous "Pillars of Creation", photographed by the Hubble Space Telescope.

The Eagle Nebula is part of a diffuse emission nebula, or H II region, which is catalogued as IC 4703. This region of active current star formation is about 7000 light-years distant. The tower of gas that can be seen coming off the nebula is approximately 9.5 light-years or about 90 trillion kilometers long.The brightest star in the nebula (HD 168076) has an apparent magnitude of +8.24, easily visible with good binoculars. It is actually a binary star formed of an O3.5V star plus an O7.5V companion.The cluster associated with the nebula has approximately 460 stars, the brightest of spectral class O, a mass of roughly 80 solar masses, and a luminosity up to 1 million times that of the Sun. Its age has been estimated to be 1-2 million years.


This color is vegan. It is not lip safe. This color is shown swatched over a light layer of NYX cream eyeshadow base in skintone, and photographed under a daylight lamp.

Ingredients: mica, titanium dioxide, ferric oxide, hydrated chromium oxide, ferric ferrocyanide, carnauba wax, tin dioxide, magnesium myristate, zinc stearate
** The use of a regular cream eyeshadow base/primer- such as NYX cream eyeshadow base, is recommended with the Galactic collection (and most Aromaleigh formulations). Sticky (glue) bases are currently very popular, but they don't guarantee optimal results. Depending on the eyeshadow formula, they can mute an eyeshadow's special effects, or result in patchy application. Sticky glue bases can be hard to work with and take a lot of practice to master. Your mileage may vary with sticky glue bases and Aromaleigh formulations.
