NOTE: All information on this page refers to the Rocks Sonic Eyes shades available from late winter 2007 to spring 2010.
For anyone who's long since wanted brighter MMU colors, check out the Sonic Eyes collection. You've got over 80 shades in every color imaginable, in all finishes. And this is part of Aromaleigh v1's regular line, unlike so many kits and collections that are available for a month or two...and then are gone.
Some of these colors are even blacklight-reactive, which means that they'll glow when you pass under a blacklight. Perfect for clubbing...or just putting a small blacklight on your desk at work, turning it so the light falls on your face, and watching your co-workers stop and stare (or just wonder if they really did just see your eyes glowing.)
NOTE: some folks decided that since these colors were blacklight reactive, they must have contained substances that were not FDA approved for cosmetic use, or for use near the eyes. The ingredients for Bluemonday are listed (on the jar label) as: "mica [CI 77019], titanium dioxide (CI 77891], iron oxide [CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499]. May contain polyester-3, D&C yellow 5 and 11, D&C orange 5, D&C violet 2, D&C blue 1, D&C red 22, 28, and 40; calcium sodium borosilicate, ferric ferrocyanide [CI 77510], tin oxide [CI 77861]." That "may contain" notice is like notes on chocolate bars that say "prepared in a facility that was also used to prepare nuts". It's so that violently allergic people know to avoid the product if even a trace amount of the listed item - which is harmless to the majority of the population - may kill them. Same with Rocks colors and the D&C lake dyes: to many people, these dyes cause no problems; but to others, even the most minute quantities of these substances can cause reactions ranging from undesirable (temporary staining of the skin) to damaging (allergic reactions, rashes, inflammations).
These colors are what the manufacturer calls "a hybrid cosmetic product", in that they combine mineral makeup base and ingredients (and lack of preservatives, which means the colors will not "go bad") with organic dyes to get the more intense shades. People who have had allergic reactions to organic dyes are urged to get samples and patch-test before using the colors, particularly the pinks, reds, and purples. [Further links of interest]
The Sonic Rocks collection does also have rouges, lip colors, body powders, and "glam glitter" eyeshadows. All are part of the regular line.
This collection is so large, I'm not going to list all of the eye colors. I'm just going to list the ones I own (which is still over 50% of this entire collection):
You should also be aware that many of the colors in this collection have a sparkly version and a "matte" version. There may be times when you want matte while you usually want the sparkle. Just be aware when you're placing your order :D It can be easy to get carried away when looking at all the brightly colored goodness, so I made up a table showing the matches:
(Once I took the time to read through all the color descriptions and examine everything closely, my "wish list" from this collection was pared by about 1/3. :D I bought the matte versions of many of the colors when the collection was discounted 40%, to clear out old inventory in preparation for a complete reformulation of all of the colors. I kept separate jars of the matte versions - for completeness' sake, I suppose - but also combined the various matte colors with the Interplanetary Traveller micas from TKB to create Rock the Planets. Yes, I know the name is hardly original. But the colors are great, and I had fun creating them.)
