If your bathroom/desk/everywhere is scattered with glimmering, semi-precious stones to align your chakras and bring you back into balance, then you’re going to love {Huda Beauty’s} latest collection! Award-winning beauty blogger Huda Kattan is one of the most influential women in the Middle East, (not to mention the rest of the world!) with a whopping 49.5 million followers — and counting — on Instagram. She is undeniably an industry sensation, having begun with fluttery {lashes} that the beautysphere instantly fell for, and more recently blessing the beauty business with internet-breaking {foundation}, viral-worthy {eyeliner} and {palette} (after palette, after palette) of must-have hues and textures. One might say that she’s fast-tracked her way to global make up domination, which is why her latest collection — the Rose Quartz collection — deserves a space in your make up stash, stat! Inspired by Huda’s favourite crystal, the spellbinding selection of both {make up} and {skin care} formulas (this collection sees the brand’s first ever collaboration with sister brand {Wishful}) boasts easy-to-use and pigmented formulas that will have you falling head over heels (and not just because rose quartz is known as the ‘love’ stone).

The ‘hero piece’ of the collection and first up on our agenda is the {Rose Quartz Eyeshadow Palette}. A treasure trove of 18 rosy and earthy shades with intense, one-swipe pigment, each hue is extraordinarily easy to apply and will ‘pop’ on all skin tones. The palette boasts identifiable ‘quads’ within its colour story — making it easier to find shades that go together for one seamless look. Plus, its array of hues comes captured in incredible textures that make {eyeshadow} application all the more fun — pick and mix between a new translucent gloss (encapsulating holographic white and pink pigment shards for a ‘crushed stone’, glazed effect); three quartz-inspired, shimmering marbles; three high-shine metallics; three soft-shine metallics to give a gentle gleam; and finally, five velvety-soft mattes.


Melding hydrating actives with nourishing botanical extracts, the {Silk Balm Rose Quartz Illuminating Lip Balm} bestows a silky smooth, high-shine finish for plump-looking {lips} in an instant. A twist on the fan-favourite {Silk Balm}, this delivers a mirror-like, pearlescent shine and is infused with illuminating rose quartz powder and pink gold pearls. It’s designed to feel ultra-comfortable on your lips and, unlike many other lip plumpers on the market, this clever formula won’t prompt any uncomfortable tingling. Instead, it calls on hyaluronic filling spheres, as well as soybean and liquorice extract to smooth over the natural ripples of your lips. The formula is also laced with manuka honey to offer long-lasting nourishment and hydration, with a deliciously subtle, sweet and musky scent to boot.

Building on the success of that divisive shade from the {Naughty Nude Eyeshadow Palette}, (you know the one), the {Rose Quartz Face Gloss Highlighting Dew} is a limited edition, all-over highlighter-gloss hybrid that calls on encapsulated gold champagne and pink pearl drops. Working to reflect and scatter light, it delivers a stunning, glass-like gleam combined with a crystal-like, shimmering finish. The universally flattering shade is dewy and sheer, and can be applied with either your fingers or an applicator for a more precise finish.


The final member of this stunning rose quartz quartet, the {Rose Quartz Lift & Glow Peel Off Face Mask} adds a little magic to your self care routine — tightening and brightening with its pretty, pink formula that looks ethereal when on and peels away with ease. Supercharged with rose quartz to encourage self love and connection with your heart chakra, the pearlescent, gel-like formula is pumped with hyaluronic acid (which ensures smooth, plump and hydrated skin by encouraging your complexion to retain water) alongside antioxidant-rich lotus flower and watermelon extracts to keep your precious skin feeling calm and soothed. Suitable for all skin types (even sensitive!) this multitasker even unclogs pores and works perfectly with the brand’s iconic {Yo Glow Enzyme Scrub}.
