Our Fave Rose Quartz Looks Featuring YOU

December 19, 2019

Joy to the World – the OG, cult-favourite, sold-out Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette is finally back in stock and ready to ship! Just in time to treat yo self and cover your lids and your life in crystal infused happiness. 

To celebrate, we’ve sharing our favourite Rose Quartz looks that you’ve all created with step-by-step guides so you can recreate every look yourself.  

WHY WE LOVE THE ROSE QUARTZ CRYSTAL GEMSTONE PALETTE

Our first ever launch, this palette is the holy-grail, all-in-one, universally flattering collection of colors that goes from soft romance to smokey gunmetal and everything in between.  And the best part, you’ll find shades that double as highlighter, blush, eyeliner, and even contour! 

Crystal Infusions

Every shade is infused with Rose Quartz crystals. Rose Quartz heals the heart chakra, allowing you to open your spirit to the energy of love. Rose Quartz also helps reduce the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and redness. Not to mention the gorgeous luminous effect it has on your skin!

Plastic Free July Amid COVID
Plastic Free July Amid COVID

July 02, 2020

While COVID has had some positive effects on the environment (cleaner air and clearer waters), it’s had the opposite effect on plastic usage. With many grocery stores banning reusable bags and containers, and coffee shops like Starbucks rejecting reusable cups, plastic use is at an all-time high. Not to mention, many areas that previously banned single-use plastic have lifted their bans during coronavirus. Plus, we’re all using plastic-laden, disposable PPE at an inconceivable rate.

So, what can we do? Can we bounce back from this? And how big is the problem really? While a completely Plastic Free July probably isn’t possible during COVID, we can arm ourselves with tips and truths to choose better and bounce back from the plastic pandemic when this is all (blessedly) over.

PRISON LABOR IN THE US & CHINA: IS YOUR MAKEUP MADE BY PRISONERS?
PRISON LABOR IN THE US & CHINA: IS YOUR MAKEUP MADE BY PRISONERS?

June 26, 2020

Look up prison labor and you’ll find a whole host of different opinions – some say it’s a chance for inmates to acquire new skills and knowledge, which can lead to employment once they finish their sentence. The vast majority of accounts though, describe prison labor as essentially ‘slave labor’ – unpaid or incredibly low-paying forced labor, exploiting inmates.

How is this relevant to the beauty industry? Many private companies, including beauty and fashion brands, use or have used prison labor, though most of us have no idea it’s even happening. Just like with sustainable sourcing and child labor, it’s essential to know how our products are being made so we can make ethical buying choices.
