While Aether Beauty is a vegan and clean crystal-infused makeup brand, it’s also obsessive about packaging sustainability. This is thanks to its founder Tiila who was on the sustainability leadership council at Sephora. Using her expertise in both beauty & sustainability, she launched a line of 4 eyeshadow palettes that could compete with coventional products and has most recently expanded into highlighters.
For full transparency, please note that not all palettes contain the same ingredients and some may contain lake dyes you may want to avoid using. I personally have only tested the Amethyst Palette shown below. Affiliate code OBL saves 15% sitewide.
What I love about the Amethyst Palette:
- 12 beautiful and adventurous shades
- Mostly shimmer with a few matte shades
- Buildable shades that can go from subtle to dramatic
- Sufficiently pigmented
- Goes on smooth and consistently
This is a great palette if you are looking for a wide mix of shades that includes a number of purples. While priced at $58, if you’re going to get a lot of use out of all 12 shades, this is actually great value for money. The 4 smaller shades in the center of the palette are more shimmer than pigment and add an ethereal prism-like look to your eyeshadow look. These are pretty velvelty, with hardly any kickback and last a good part of the day.
