You Don't "Need" This Crystal-Infused Highlighter, but You Definitely Want It
Even if you don't exactly subscribe to the woo-woo–leaning philosophy of healing crystals, the aesthetic appeal is undeniable—which is why it's unsurprising that the beauty industry has capitalized on this kitschy-cool New Age trend in a big way. We've already seen our fair share of crystal-infused face mists, body oils, and even eye creams—and now, one of the buzziest makeup brands of the moment is getting in on this corner of the market.
ColourPop is launching its limited-edition Crystal Collection on June 28, which will feature an array of products infused with crushed stones. The cult-loved brand will offer different variations of the same Crystal Priming Spray ($6), Crystal Setting Spray ($6), Crystal Liquid Highlight ($6), and Crystal Lip Balm ($5)—basically, you get to choose between crystals like amethyst, rose quartz, and aquamarine, according to the energy properties (or color) you're looking for.

And for those who are curious about the purported healing properties associated with each crystal, here's a brief rundown (based on the stones that the Crystal Collection will offer):
- Aquamarine is a protective stone associated with courage and overcoming inhibitions.
- Rose quartz is closely associated with love—romance, sure, but also self-care and appreciation.
- Amethyst is therapeutic and detoxifying. Azalea Lee, an L.A.-based crystal healer, recommends using it to wind down from a stressful day and to quiet mental chatter.
- Adventurine boosts creativity and imagination.
If nothing else, it's a fun way to incorporate crystals into your daily routine—and with minor damage to your bank account, we might add. (Besides, a highlighter infused with crushed crystals? Calling it: We've officially reached peak strobe.)
Shop the collection on ColourPop's website starting tomorrow.
