OUR PICKS

1. Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette

Our bestselling, holy-grail, all-in-one palette, the Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette is the soft, romantic, incredibly versatile answer to your Vday wishes. With our signature mix of mattes, metallics, shimmers, and duo-chromes, you can create any look from ballerina pink to dusky drama.  

True love should be versatile, multifaceted, and able to bring joy in more ways than one! And this palette is no pretender - it’s love brought to life. The formula is incredibly pigmented, ultra-buttery, and deliciously blendable because love should never be hard #amiright?

INFUSED WITH ROSE QUARTZ: THE LOVE STONE

Perfect for Vday and everyday, this palette is infused with Rose Quartz – the stone directly connected to your heart chakra. This rose-colored stone helps you open your spirit to the energy of love – aligning and unblocking your heart chakra.  

Rose Quartz is also nature’s real-life radiance filter – it reflects light away from the skin, blurring texture and discoloration, and helps calm inflammation, release tension, and encourage skin healing. What’s not to love about that?! 

Keep reading for all the ways you can use and love your Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Palette beyond just eyeshadow!

AS A HIGHLIGHTER

Dust these shades under the brow bone, in the inner corner of the eye, and along the cheekbones for a luminous, lit-from-within radiance!

Stardust – a light pink shimmer. Use as a romantic, rosé highlight.

Divine – pink to peach duo-chrome. Use for a blindingly bright highlight that transforms with the light.

Reawakening – pink to gold duo-chrome. Apply just a touch for a sun-kissed glimmer.

AS BLUSH

Brush these shades along the apples of the cheeks and even the tip of your nose for an adorable cold weather vibe!

Scorpio – Rose brown matte. A deeper, matte blush shade for gorgeous definition on medium to deep skin tones.

Heartstone - Rose pink shimmer. For that shimmery pink, I'm-in-love flush.

AS AN EYELINER

Use any shade as an eyeliner, but for that traditional smoky drama, these shades are your friends:

Aphrodite – Violet gray matte

Grounding – Charcoal matte 


2. CRYSTAL CHARGED CHEEK PALETTES

Incredibly pigmented, oh-so-buttery, and infused with radiance-inducing crystals, you’ll get that kissed by love, starlit luminosity we all need more of in our lives. Each palette comes with 2 velvety soft-focus blushes and 1 luminous highlighter that build effortlessly and blend seamlessly. 

With skin-loving, antioxidant-rich plant oils, just one dust of the brush creates a lasting luminosity that nourishes, hydrates, and glowifies the skin from within.

AMBER CRYSTAL CHARGED CHEEK PALETTE

An amber-infused supercharged cheek palette with 2 pinky-peachy coral blushes and 1 golden champagne highlighter. Infused with a touch of apricot warmth, and a golden champagne tone, it's the I'm-in-love glow for every day of the year. 

THE CRYSTAL INFUSION: AMBER

Amber is the ultimate golden love letter to your skin - it contains succinic acid, a powerful antioxidant that helps release toxins, encourage renewal, and restore balance to the skin. 

Spiritually, this honey-hued stone awakens our self-worth, love for ourself, and stimulates our creative expression. It transforms negativity into light. 

RUBY CRYSTAL CHARGED CHEEK PALETTE

The ruby-infused cousin to our Amber Cheek Palette, created especially for medium to deep skin tones. With 2 soft-focus vintage rose, petal pink blushes and 1 golden peach highlight, it's a sultry sophisticated vibe with a just-right touch of luminescence. 

THE CRYSTAL INFUSION: RUBY

Rubies help hydrate, nourish, and protect the skin from environmental toxins. This flame-hued gem acts like a sauna for your skin: helping to encourage better blood flow and remove unwanted toxins.

And perfect for Vday, Ruby stimulates the heart – awakening passion and love in your life. It helps open your heart to love for yourself, and romantic or platonic love for others. 

Both Cheek Palettes are only $15 when paired with the Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone palette!

TEFLON (PTFE) IN MAKEUP
TEFLON (PTFE) IN MAKEUP

Fluorinated chemicals like Teflon don't break down in the environment – they’re found in oceans, local waterways, and in animals, fish, and people. They’ve even been found in super remote regions in the polar ice caps.

How does this happen? Let’s say a face wash with PTFE is washed down the drain – it then enters our waterways and gets ingested by fish, which eventually end up on human plates. Once it enters the body (human or animal), it just continues to accumulate, never breaking down.
