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: Monoceros is a vivid pink-violet with a blue duochrome shift. Inspired by the Rosette nebula, located in the constellation of Monoceros, the Unicorn. (NASA/JPL-CALTECH/UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA)
(Source: Wikipedia) The Rosette Nebula (also known as Caldwell 49) is a large, circular H II region located near one end of a giant molecular cloud in the Monoceros region of the Milky Way Galaxy. The open clusterNGC 2244 (Caldwell 50) is closely associated with the nebulosity, the stars of the cluster having been formed from the nebula's matter.\
The cluster and nebula lie at a distance of some 5,200 light-years from Earth (although estimates of the distance vary considerably, down to 4,900 light-years.[3]) and measure roughly 130 light years in diameter. The radiation from the young stars excites the atoms in the nebula, causing them to emit radiation themselves producing the emission nebula we see. The mass of the nebula is estimated to be around 10,000 solar masses. It is believed that stellar winds from a group of O and B stars are exerting pressure on interstellar clouds to cause compression, followed by star formation in the nebula. This star formation is currently still ongoing. A survey of the nebula with the Chandra X-ray Observatory in 2001 has revealed the presence of very hot, young stars at the core of the Rosette Nebula. These stars have heated the surrounding gas to a temperature in the order of 6 million kelvins causing them to emit copious amounts of X-rays.
Not vegan or lip safe! Eye use only. 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, ferric ferrocyanide, carnauba wax, tin dioxide, silica, carmine, red #40, hydrogenated polyisobutene, palmitic acid, copper powder, 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.
