Here’s the full Galactic: Mission 2 collection, which will release on #blackfriday AM (I am in the Eastern Time Zone, so this will put us at 9 AM EST!) Mission 2 contains ten colorful, satin finish eyeshadows in vivid shades with a glowy countenance. Some are contrasting shifts, others are tonal shifts. This is a permanent collection.
You can purchase deluxe sample or full size jars individually. Sample baggies are available only in sets of all ten colors.
Also releasing on Black Friday will be Galactic: Mission 3 which will be a collection of 7 very glowy, paler toned highlighters which are multipurpose and can be used anywhere- eyes, face, lips, cheeks. Sneak peeks for those will come soon- I am sharing these with you as I complete the photos and materials for my online listings.
[PSA] Hannibal fans! Ordering for the ultra-exclusive Hannibal “Primavera” box, inspired by the first half of Hannibal season three… opens on Monday 8/17 at 3 PM EST. There are 50 slots available for this limited edition box.
The concept of the box runs very deep and explores a broad range of themes as exemplified through the characters and the ever-present Botticelli painting, “Primavera” in the first half of the season. I studied this painting extensively while earning my Master of Fine Arts and have also spent my own fair share of time sitting in front of it, in the Uffizi. This collection is very personal to me not just in my love of everything Hannibal, but also Italy, Florence, fine art and mythology. I’ve been collaborating with @Cleolinda and @Tattle_crime and I promise you a collection with very intense meta!
Right now the box is slated to contain 3 mini eyeshadows, a mini rouge, a mini highlighter, an Aromaleigh nourishing colour creme (yes, that’s a lip product!), and a custom fragrance by Alchimia Apothecary. That’s a retail value of $49.75, not including all of the special extras that go into giving this box a beautiful and artistic conceptual presentation. I like to see my small collections as works of art, each one completely assembled by hand, by me.
There are 50 slots available, and the box price is $48 plus shipping. Orders placed on 8/17 should include only this box- no other items. This is because your order represents a special order for this item, which will ship on OCTOBER 1. There is a limit of one box per customer, and the box can ship internationally- just choose your country and ship option when you check out.
Here’s sneak peeks from the ANTHOUSAI (Greek flower nymph) collection! This series focuses on the overall concept of metamorphoses, and myths of maidens turned into flowers and plants.
I hope to make the collection orderable on May 1, a perfect day for it, being May Day/Beltane!
These shadows are all very smooth, lustrous and buttery. They feature a new formula I’ve been working with, which makes the colors easy to apply with lovely effects even over bare skin (the upper right hand swatches are all over bare skin). Of course you can use a variety of bases or primers with these for even more intense effects. The new formula isn’t semi-loose where you receive a jar with little balls of eyeshadow- it’s still a loose powder, but due to formula changes is less likely to leak through the sifter, and may require a heavier hand to get the powder through the sifter. I will continue to use sifters with my shipments, for added security against leakage. They are easily removed.
It’s official- everyone loves a sweet duochrome. You can look forward to these in the second half of March. This is just a sneak peek to whet your appetite!
I love doing space-themed collections, and I’m hoping that this one meets your mark for your desires for strong/vivid duochrome shades. This is a permanent collection, and I’ll be releasing ten shades this month and then ten more shades in May (which will be influenced by your feedback on these initial ten!).
The visual inspirations for the colors are exquisite color composite imagery from NASA- Hubble, Spitzer, JPL, etc. In naming the shades, sometimes I named the color after the constellation in which it appears, while other times I gave it the Latin name for it’s English counterpart, as in naming “Aquila” (eagle in Latin) for the Eagle Nebula, or “Oculus” (eye in Latin) for the Cat’s Eye Nebula. Why? Because Latin sounds cooler, admit it.
Here’s the ten shades from GALACTIC: Mission One. Enjoy, and feel free to share!

On February 23rd, “More Human than Human”, a collection inspired by one of my favorite sci-fi films, “Blade Runner” will be available for ordering! This collection of ten shades will be available in sample, deluxe sample, and full sizes. I’ll be including the inspiration behind each color along with visual inspirations put together by @Cleolinda. Here’s a link to a pin showing the amazing work she’s done in linking the inspiration to scenes from the film! I’m so excited to share all of these with you.
In the meantime, check the colors out below, as well as on the website, where I’ve included multiple swatch views of each shade.
In the next few days I’ll be announcing a contest for this collection, with a range of prizes. The contest will be announced here, Facebook and Twitter.
Past Aromaleigh collections such as “Astronomical” and “Starry Night” have explored astronomy-based themes. This galactic inspired collection will pick up where these themes left off, with twenty vividly colored duochromes reflective of the amazing photographs taken by the Hubble telescope. Colors will be inspired by galaxies, nebulas and other colorful galactic scenes. This will be a permanent collection.

This collection will be a March/April release- there isn’t an exact release date at this time.
A special sneak peek for you from the upcoming Blade Runner inspired collection. “Like Tears in Rain”, from Roy Batty’s final monologue… ETA for this collection is currently the third week of February.
“I have seen things you people wouldn’t believe… Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those… moments… will be lost in time, like tears in rain. “
This shade looks like a muted deeper blue/grey with copper shimmer in the jar, but applied over regular Nyx cream primer it explodes to life, with a strong turquoise interference highlight, and multidimensional color traveling sparks in coppery tones.
