Full size jar with sifter
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: Musca is a rich blue with a strong gold duochrome shift. Inspired by NGC 159, located in the constellation of Musca (the fly) - I think this nebula looks like a skull, screaming in space. (IMAGE CREDIT: NASA, ESA, Hubble Heritage Team (STScI/AURA)

(Source: NASA/APOD) Why is this nebula so complex? When a star like our Sun is dying, it will cast off its outer layers, usually into a simple overall shape. Sometimes this shape is a sphere, sometimes a double lobe, and sometimes a ring or a helix. In the case of planetary nebula NGC 5189, however, no such simple structure has emerged. To help find out why, the Earth-orbiting Hubble Space Telescope recently observed NGC 5189 in great detail. Previous findings indicated the existence of multiple epochs of material outflow, including a recent one that created a bright but distorted torus running horizontally across image center. Results appear consistent with a hypothesis that the dying star is part of a binary star system with a precessing symmetry axis. Given this new data, though, research is sure to continue. NGC 5189 spans about three light years and lies about 3,000 light years away toward the southern constellation of the Fly (Musca).


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, ultramarine blue, ferric ferrocyanide, carnauba wax, blue #1, hydrogenated polyisobutene, palmitic acid, 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.

This collection is available in a range of sizes
  1. Sample baggie: eighth (1/8) teaspoon in a zip baggie (available in sets only)
  2. Deluxe Sample: quarter (1/4) teaspoon in 3 gram jar. No sifter. Bottom label only.
  3. Full Size Jar: 5 gram jar with sifter and top/bottom labels. This size jar contains 3/4 teaspoon which has a minimum net gram weight of 1.2 grams. I label jar weights on the conservatively low side. Product ranges in weight depending on formula from 1.5 to 2 grams.
NOTE: While we have made all attempts for photographs to accurately depict colors, photography unfortunately does not accurately reveal the depth and interplay of color and effect of these shadows. Also, please note that variations do exist between different computer monitors.
