We’re obsessed. First with crystals and now with crystal infused beauty products. It’s all about the glow when you put these on…
What do you know? Besides having crystals surrounding us at work and at home, we’re on board with the idea of crystal infused makeup and skincare. Crystals in our face creams and blushers? Why not. If crystals have healing and detoxifying properties, surely having them IN our skincare routine would be powerful. It’s official: our crystal obsession is back in session and all we want to do is shine bright like a diamond (or glow like moonstone and rose quartz – you get the idea).
Too Faced: Diamond Light Highlighter
Diamonds on rings are overrated, here’s an even prettier package. At first look, it might remind you of a pastel-coloured Paddlepop but the Too Faced Diamond Light highlighter packs a punch. Infused with real crushed diamond powder and light reflecting pearls to create a rainbow diamond fire glow that would make your cheekbones shimmer for days. The liquid to powder formula is hand poured so no two highlighters will ever look the same – just like a real diamond.
Bare Minerals: Flawless Definition Mascara
Need some drama in the eyelash department? Add volume and definition to your lashes with Bare Minerals’ Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara. It contains smithsonite and malachite extracts, which provides soothing and healing properties while also drawing attention to your eyes.

This hydrating shimmer powder is also infused with real crushed pearls for a gentle and long-lasting radiance.
Colourpop: Amber Crystal Collection
Need something simpler (but still crystal-infused) for your makeup stash? Colourpop’s crushed crystal collection was all the rage when it was released. Priming sprays, liquid highlighters and pearlescent lip balms containing amber, amethyst, rose quartz, aventurine and aquamarine flew off the shelves almost immediately. You’ll still be able to find the amber set on the website, but in limited stock!

Enter Wet n Wild Matte Face Primer which contains white sapphire formulated into a smooth and silky cream. It glides on effortlessly, minimises pores, fills fine lines and leaves behind a crystal complexion.
