The nebula-inspired GALACTIC collection is this week’s featured product, marked down to 25% off savings! This collection was released last month, and this is it’s debut on sale as a weekly featured product.
Galactic: Mission One is now available! Each duochrome shade is inspired by the beautiful composite imagery captured by various NASA agencies, such as Hubble, Spitzer, JPL and Chandra.
This permanent collection contains ten shades. Visit the collection page, for full details about each color, nebula, size options and specific ingredients. The full sizes for this collection come with corresponding label art! SHOP HERE!
Mission Two will be released in May, with ten additional shades.
The duochrome effects of these shades are best obtained with a cream eyeshadow base, such as NYX cream eyeshadow base. If you apply these without a base, you will see less dramatic color shifts and more muted effects.
All site swatches are done over NYX cream eyeshadow base and photographed with a daylight lamp (just a daylight balanced CFL bulb in a small desk lamp). I don’t recommend sticky/glue bases for Aromaleigh formulations, as they can result in patchy application because I often formulate using matte bases. Your mileage may vary if you choose to use a sticky/glue/epoxy type of base.
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!
These are all photographed under a daylight lamp, and swatched over NYX cream eyeshadow base in skintone.
Upcoming March/April collection sneak peek!
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.
Here’s a sneak peek of the first shade, “Carina” – which is inspired by the palette of the Hubble Telescope image, “Jet in Carina: WFC3 UVIS Full Field” IMAGE CREDIT: NASA, ESA, and the Hubble SM4 ERO Team

This collection will be a March/April release- there isn’t an exact release date at this time.
