We get asked almost daily “how do I choose between your eyeshadow palettes?!” So, we’ve put together a little guide to help you make up your mind!
While each palette has different textures, colors, and crystal infusions, let’s first chat about what every Āether Beauty palette has in common:
The bottom line: you should never have to sacrifice performance for safe ingredients, or animals for beauty, or the planet for packaging. You can have it all, with zero trade-offs, knowing that only goodness went into this product, and only goodness will come out of it - for us, the animals, and this planet. #goodvibesbeauty
The only choice you're left with: which #nosacrifice palette you want to try out first! Keep reading for our help-you-decide guide.
Our first eyeshadow palette launch, the Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette is the perfect everyday, soft, romantic, universally flattering collection of colors. It’s an all-inclusive palette in so many ways:
You’re looking for your holy-grail, all-in-one, clean, ultra-pigmented palette. It’s super versatile, breathlessly romantic, and works overtime with shades that do more than double-duty.
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!
These shades can be used as a highlight under the brow bone, in the inner corner of the eye, and even along the cheekbones for a gorgeously lit-from-within glow!
Stardust – a light pink shimmer. Use as a romantic, rosé-inspired highlight.
Divine – pink to peach duo-chrome. Use for a high-wattage highlight that transforms with the light.
Reawakening – pink to gold duo-chrome. Apply just a touch for a glimmer that dances between sun-kissed and rose-dusted.
Scorpio – Rose brown matte. A deeper, matte blush shade for gorgeous definition on medium to dark skin tones.
Heartstone - Rose pink shimmer. For that shimmery pink, I'm-in-love flush.
These shades shift as they catch the light, giving you a multi-faceted, layered effect with just one swipe.
Reawakening – Pink to gold duo-chrome
Divine – Pink to peach duo-chrome
Astarte – Lavender to silver-blue duo-chrome
Aura – Maroon to blue-purple duo-chrome
Any shade can be used to line the eye, but these two give that smoky dose of drama you look for in an eyeliner shade.
Aphrodite – Violet gray matte
Grounding – Charcoal matte
Our second eyeshadow palette, the Crystal Grid Gemstone Palette is deep, dramatic, and decadently jewel-toned. Vivid shades for those starlit strolls, moonlit trysts, and artistic, creative moments. But let’s be real – we can all use a little more glitz in every moment of our lives!
You love yourself some rich, dramatic, vibrant shadows! Every shade has a little (or a lot) of shimmer, sparkle, metallic, or duo-chrome glamour. No mattes, no subdued shades, subtlety is not our game on this one. This palette is for your cosmic expression – to experiment with color, layer those luxurious textures, and call forth the artistry within.
We named this the Crystal Grid Gemstone Palette for a reason! This palette is infused with 6 different crystals: Diamond, Amber, Sapphire, Topaz, Amethyst and Tourmaline. Each crystal adds a different facet of shine, luminosity, and unique healing, uplifting qualities. If you can’t get enough crystals in your life, and you don’t want to play favorites, this palette is for you. A little about each crystal:
Diamond – a seriously high-vibe stone, diamonds activate the crown chakra – opening the mind and spirit to infinite possibility, imagination, and creativity.
Amber – absorbs negativity and helps alleviate stress. It enhances our self-confidence and stimulates our creative expression.
Sapphire – considered one of the most sacred stones, sapphire helps facilitates self-expression, allows you to express your truth, and connect to a deeper understanding of yourself.
Topaz – found in more than one of our palettes, topaz is the stone of creativity and abundance – it helps bring your highest intentions to life.
Amethyst – connected to the crown chakra, Amethyst purifies negative thoughts and helps release stress, anxiety, and fear. It helps remove darkness and bring forth the light.
Tourmaline – seen as a ‘psychic shield’, Tourmaline helps deflect negative energy from our mind and spirit. It transforms low vibe energy into positive, creative action.
This is the palette of shimmer and shine – so you might guess there are a few MAJOR options for a #lit highlight:
Moonlight - White silver metallic. For an icy, doused in diamonds look. And we mean literally - there are real diamonds inside.
Diamond – Sand shimmer, infused with diamond. For a soft, golden glimmer you just can’t resist.
Topaz – Antique gold metallic, infused with topaz. For next-level, 24-karat dripped in gold gorgeousness. Just a touch and you’ll shine bright.
For smoky, sultry definition, use these shades as-is or dip your brush in water first for some serious color payoff.
Intuition – Saddle brown shimmer infused with topaz.
Recharge - Charcoal gray metallic, infused with topaz.
Golden, sun-kissed warmth
The Summer Solstice Palette feels like dancing barefoot on the sand, moonlight rising, waves crashing, tiki torches lit, bonfire blazing – the completely magical energy of summer.
You want it all, wrapped in a golden summer sunset. Summer Solstice is a versatile mix of mattes, metallics, shimmers, duo-chrome, and satin shades to invoke those sacred summer sunsets any time of year. It’s an all-in-one palette to create any look under (and inspired by) the sun.
Summer Solstice’s three warm and decadent crystals, Amber, Ruby, and Topaz give you that touched-by-the sun, glowing-from-within vibe:
Amber: Amber transforms negative, blocked energies into positive, vibrant energy. It helps remove toxicity from our mind, body, and spirit.
Topaz: Topaz is the stone of creativity and abundance – it helps bring your highest intentions to life.
Ruby: Ruby emanates power, prosperity, and sensuality. It stimulates the heart – awakening passion and love in your life.
Like the Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette, this palette is incredibly versatile in colors, textures, and finishes. It's an all-in-one, wear-anywhere palette that can do naturally subtle or seriously striking. And the shades can be worn in so many bonus ways:
Apply in the inner corner of your eye, along your brow bone, atop your cupid’s bow, and even as a highlighter along your cheekbones.
Citrine – light sand shimmer infused with topaz. The perfect all-over highlight for every skin tone.
Amber – golden metallic infused with amber. Not for the faint of heart, this shade is a high wattage and oh so #extra highlight. And we’re here for it!
Solar Eclipse – peach metallic infused with topaz. A universally flattering shimmer shade, it's a perfect blush for every skin tone.
Sol – apricot matte, infused with amber. A pop of peachy warmth, gorgeous on medium to dark skin tones.
Ruby – pink ginger metallic, infused with ruby. A rich dose of drama for the bold and blush-obsessed. You only need a light dusting for multifaceted shine.
Three decadent shades in matte, satin, and metallic that can double as a liner.
Midsummer - golden saddle brown satin infused with amber.
Sistere - milk chocolate matte, infused with ruby.
Intrinsic - red-brown metallic, infused with ruby.
