Who likes purple eyeshadows? MEEEE! I have brown-green eyes and I think that purple tones make my eyes look more green – which I love!
Aether Beauty came out with the Amethyst Crystal Gemstone palette and as the name suggests: It’s a purple-toned palette.
The brand kindly sent me the palette as PR but as always I will give you my honest opinion about it.
- The Aether Beauty Amethyst Gemstone Palette retails for $58.00 (aetherbeautyco.com).
- Contains 12 shades (“ultra-matte”, “shimmer”, “duo-chrome” and “metallic”)
- Vegan and cruelty free
- The palette is sustainably packaged: with removal of eyeshadow pans and elastic, this paper palette is fully recyclable and zero waste
- Net weight 17.0 g/ 0.56 oz. (8 x 1.50 g/ 0.05 oz. + 4 x 1.25 g/ 0.04 oz.)
- So that is around $3.41 per gram/ $103.57 per ounce
I really enjoy the formula of these eyeshadows.
The mattes are super smooth, nicely pigmented and blend well. The only thing is that they are quite powdery, which I don’t really mind.
The shimmers/ metallic/ duochrome shades are very nice, too! Some are super pigmented right away and with some you need to built them up a little. I think that’s totally fine and normal though.
If you are into purple tones this is a very nice palette. This palette and the Summer Solstice palette are definitely my favorite palettes from the brand. I have to say that I probably prefer the Summer Solstice palette – I just loooove warm toned eyeshadows.
- Beautiful shade range
- Mattes are very smooth, pigmented and blend well
- Shimmery shades are pigmented and easy to work with
- Clean, vegan, cruelty free
- Organic and fair trade ingredients
- Packaging is recyclable
Overall this is another Aether Beauty palette that I really enjoy!
If you are into purple eyeshadows I think you might like this palette.
Even though the palettes are more pricey I think they are worth the money. I mean I know that you can get good eyeshadows for a lot less. But the quality of Aether Beauty is great and I just love that they care about the environment and clean beauty!
