July 02, 2019

Summer is here! And our Summer Solstice palette is back in stock just in time for bonfires at sundown and dancing until dawn. 

To celebrate its return, we're showing you how to create three star-dusted Summer Solstice looks + we're giving you 10% off with code: SSLOVE! 

THE SUMMER SOLSTICE PALETTE

Inspired by the magic of summer, this palette has 12 golden-hour shades in matte, shimmer, satin, metallic, and duo-chrome finishes for that lustrous midsummer glow.

It is as always, fully recyclable, completely sustainable, 100% vegan & cruelty-free, and packed with radiance-boosting ingredients like Organic Coconut Oil and Organic Prickly Pear Oil.

THE SUMMER SOLSTICE CRYSTALS

We chose our three warm and decadent crystals, AmberRuby, and Topaz to give you that luminescent, glowing-from-within vibe. Each crystal is hand-picked to bring alignment to your spirit and renewal to your skin:

RUBY

For your skin: Rubies help hydrate, nourish, and protect the skin from aging free radicals like pollution. 

For your spirit: Ruby emanates power, prosperity, and sensuality. It stimulates the heart – awakening passion and love in your life. Love for others and love for yourself.

AMBER

For your skin: The succinic acid found in Amber is a powerful antioxidant. It helps fight the damaging effects of free radicals on your skin.

For your spirit: Amber transforms negative, blocked energies into positive, vibrant energy. It helps remove toxicity from our mind, body, and spirit - connecting us to the strong life force within.

TOPAZ

For your skin: Releases tension from the face which can cause premature aging.

For your spirit: Topaz is the stone of creativity and abundance. It helps bring your highest intentions to life, strengthening your confidence and self-worth.

THE GOLDEN GODDESS 

This look is dripped-in-gold, Grecian goddess gorgeousness. With a mix of glistening metallics and sultry mattes, this look says depth and mystery. Real topaz and amber crystals awaken you to your personal power and unique light.

  • For the outer-v, use the shade ‘Balance’ – a sienna matte infused with amber. Blend upwards and outwards.
  • Line the first half of your lower lash line with the shade 'Amber', an amber-infused golden metallic. Line the back half of the lower lash line with the shade 'Sol', an apricot matte infused with amber.

    THE GILDED GYPSY 

    Smoky and sultry with a pop of liquid gold glimmer. Amber and topaz crystals infuse your spirit with creativity, prosperity, and a strong sense of self.

Lockdown (and possibly boredom) awakened our creativity and we experimented with everything eyes, perfected our zoom meeting glow, and took ah-maazing care of our skin (plus gave it a much need break from foundation).

      Now in 2021, with many of us still living the lockdown (or semi-lockdown) life, we’ll keep upping our beauty game whether it’s paired with pyjamas or actual go-outside ensembles.
