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: Orion is a warm chestnut brown with a strong green duochrome shift. Inspired by the "Cosmic Hearth" image of the Orion nebula) (CREDIT: NASA/JPL-Caltech/UCLA)

(Source: NASA) The Orion nebula is featured in this sweeping image from NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, or WISE. The constellation of Orion is prominent in the evening sky throughout the world from about December through April of each year. The nebula (also catalogued as Messier 42) is located in the sword of Orion, hanging from his famous belt of three stars. The star cluster embedded in the nebula is visible to the unaided human eye as a single star, with some fuzziness apparent to the most keen-eyed observers. Because of its prominence, cultures all around the world have given special significance to Orion. The Maya of Mesoamerica envision the lower portion of Orion, his belt and feet (the stars Saiph and Rigel), as being the hearthstones of creation, similar to the triangular three-stone hearth that is at the center of all traditional Maya homes. The Orion nebula, lying at the center of the triangle, is interpreted by the Maya as the cosmic fire of creation surrounded by smoke.


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, ferric ferrocyanide, carnauba wax, chromium oxide, red #40, tin dioxide, 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.
