Aether Beauty Launches at Sephora Featuring their GemStone Eyeshadow Palettes

You’ve likely already heard of Aether Beauty already! There a rather small brand that’s vegan, cruelty free, and features clean, organic + fair trade ingredients. They have two different Gemstone Eyeshadow Palettes that are infused with crystal gemstones. I heard about the brand last Summer but never got around to ordering either of their eyeshadow palettes and I have to admit I forgot to follow up.

UPDATE: These are on sale at nordstrom.com!

I was surprised to see them pop up at Sephora.com today! But in other ways, I’m not since gemstones and crystals seem to be on trend at the moment as well as “clean” beauty.

Aether Beauty isn’t a big brand and they only feature two eyeshadow palettes but considering the launch at Sephora I imagine they might expand at some point (unless they are only at Sephora for a limited time).

Aether Beauty Rose Quartz Crystal Gemstone Eyeshadow Palette contains 12 eyeshadows infused with rose quartz in ultra-matte, shimmer, duo-chrome, and metallic finishes that contain coconut and rose hip oil to give them a buttery smooth texture.

Shades:

  • Stardust (light pink shimmer)
  • Sandstone (neutral beige matte)
  • Heartstone (rose pink shimmer)
  • Rose Quartz (antique rose metallic)
  • Scorpio (rose brown matte)
  • Crystalline (antique champagne metallic)
  • Aphrodite (violet gray matte)
  • Grounding (charcoal matte)
  • Reawakening (pink to gold duo-chrome shimmer)
  • Divine (pink to peach duo-chrome shimmer)
  • Astarte ( lavender to silver blue duo-chrome shimmer)
  • Aura (maroon to blue purple duo-chrome shimmer)

The second palette is the Crystal Grid Gemstone Eyeshadow Palette which contains 12 cosmic-inspired shades infused with crystal gemstone in shimmer and metallic finishes as well as coconut, moringa, and rose oil that gives them a soft, buttery texture!

Shades:

  • Diamond (shimmer sand infused with diamonds)
  • Vibration (metallic taupe infused with topaz)
  • Amber (metallic golden sunset infused with amber)
  • Energy (metallic rust infused with amber)
  • Moonlight (metallic white silver infused with diamond)
  • Recharge (metallic charcoal gray, infused with topaz)
  • Topaz (metallic antique gold, infused with topaz)
  • Manifest (shimmer bronze, infused with topaz)
  • Amethyst (shimmer violet infused with amethyst)
  • Sapphire (shimmer teal infused with sapphire)
  • Intuition (shimmer saddle brown infused with topaz)
  • Tourmaline (metallic rust red to emerald green duo-chrome, infused with tourmaline)

What do you think of these two new palettes from Aether Beauty?

Both are available now.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    I live under a rock. I have never heard of this brand. LOL! Are there gemstone powders infused in the shadows, too, because that would be cool, at least from a marketing standpoint. LOL! I actually like the fact that the palettes are fully recyclable. It’s as they say: I’d be doing my makeup in front of a mirror anyway or I’d be using my compact mirror. I’m not a fan of mirrors in bigger palettes because I find that unwieldy.

    • Isabella Muse

      Oh no you don’t! It’s sort of an indie brand imho! I started hearing about them on YT last Summer and I was intrigued by the color selection but never followed up! It seems they are infused with different gems like diamond, topaz, etc…! I like a mirror in my palettes but I’m like you never used them ;D

    I was surprised to see a small indie brand launch at Sephora too; turns out the founder used to work for Sephora management so I’m guessing retained her network of contacts. I’m interested but usually green/eco-brands either lack pigmentation or they tend towards “natural” looks (for their target audience), which I’m not about (love me smoky cat eyes!). So I definitely want to wait for reviews. That being said, I do tend towards clean-er brands than not (bareMinerals, tarte) or items with good-for-you ingredients even if not natural (like Korean brand Troiareuke’s cushion compacts, which are 99% skincare, 1% foundation), which accounts for a lot of my collection but definitely not all.

      Interesting I didn’t know that! I think, don’t quote me, maybe it’s a limited engagement though unless they plan to expand their line! It seems like something they brought it for the clean beauty aspect! I always find it hard to go completely clean. My hands are in way too many beauty pots sometimes and I feel limited to what I can feature on the blog if I go completely clean! I envy you for being so good about it!!!!!!!!!

      • Agona

        Hahaha, I’m really not. bareMinerals and tarte happen to be my two fav Western brands, but I love Heimish (Korean brand, which isn’t clean beauty at all), and have been playing with a lot of Ciate, Kaja, and Sephora house brand and Sydney Grace products lately. I think it really only that way because BM is my favorite makeup formulations so that’s why it takes up a good chunk of my collection, and so I just supplement the gaps with other stuff from tarte and play with other brands and K-Beauty. Honestly though, what helps if I have one acrylic container and nightstand that I force myself to stay within the confines of…so if I start to collect too much, I declutter.

        • Isabella Muse

          you’re amazing ;-D I wish I could just contain it to one area but nope, I have an entire room worth UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

  • simone

    I noticed neimans has the palettes (at least one) as well, might be a good time to try with their sale.

    I was given the Rose Quartz palette. At first I thought it was just ok. But, I must say it really is pretty and different from what I usually gravitate to. The shadows are very smooth and blend beautifully with minimal powder kicked up and fallout. The container is cardboard and closes with an afixed elastic. The shadows are removable. I like a mirror even though I rarely use the one in palettes. After all is said and done, I probably would not have purchased it for myself. I think I would have preferred the Crystal Grid palette.

  • Agona

    Lol, Muse, I don’t know if this matters to you but I just saw a review that since the palette is recyclable and there’s no magnet, it comes with a rubber band that you put around it to keep it closed—I know that would super annoy me so this has come off my wishlist, hahaha.

    • Isabella Muse

      I don’t mind the rubber band on the outside but are the shadows not secured inside with magnets?! that would be horrible!

    These are $77 on sephora Canada. HECK NO for that price for me and my budget and needs!!
