Astrological Beauty Is Here... and We're Starry-Eyed!

7 August, 2018 - 07:23pm by - Head Pixie | 21 Comments

Aries - Calm your farm - more cosmetics are coming. Look for a sign to make sure you buy the right one.

Cancer - Don't get crabby if you're favourite lipstick is sold out. There's a new one coming your way - with your name on it!

Scorpio - Current highlighters not doing it for you? Put that stinger away, a blinding highlight is about to hit! 

Has old Tabby gone mad? Nope, I'm just in the thrall of the latest trend. Astrological-inspired cosmetics are going supernova! Brand after brand is bringing out collections, each with their own take - and we are loving it! So what's out there to get all starry eyed over? Check these out.

It's not the first time Kathleen Lights has put something astrological to her name. Previous collections with ColourPop have seen her release astrologically named products before, but she's never given us a galaxy of options... until now. Her latest collection - 'The Zodiac Collection' - has everything you need to create a gorgeous face of colour, including an eye palette, Lux Lipsticks, Super Shock Highlighters, and Supernova Shadow.

Followers of astrology will know that Mercury in retrograde can lead to... not the best of times. Some say it's more likely to cause you to get the grumps with loved one. It's not a good time to sign contracts. You don't want to set up a new business or launch a new facet of a business. As for electronics? If they're going to have a meltdown it'll be during this time. (Note to self - keep water bottle away from laptop.) Poor old Mercury, it gets a lot of grief for moving backwards, which - FUN FACT - it actually doesn't go backwards, it just appears to. It's a whole time/space/science/astronomy thing that you can read more about, along with why people are interesting in Mercury retrograde, here. Whether you're a believer or not, one good thing has come from Mercury in retrograde and that's Essie releasing two new polishes. 'Keep Calm' and 'Mercury On'. Infused with celestial pearl particles, it's said they'll help keep the bad vibes at bay. Either way, they're gorgeous and looking at them any time of day, week, year, time will give you a case of the happies.

Love a good lippy? We predict you'll adore Astrology by Bite! 12 shades inspired by the 12 astrological signs, featuring fiery reds to gleaming golds to nice and natural nudes, and more. Our favourite? Gemini. Two shades in one bullet representing the duality of the sign? Genius.

Now do tell... Do you predict this fad will fade fast? Or is it about to go sky high, with more brands jumping on the celestial bandwagon? Chat away!

Oh wow those two essie polishes look celestial! So beautiful, wonder when they'll come to NZ.

Wow lots of those look fab!

Wow I love that BH cosmetics palette! It's stunning. Must find out more about it now.

I just got a colour pop pallette woah my goodness it is PIGMENTED!

I love the look of the nail polish, gorgeous!

Just bought a nail colour similar to the one on the left. They're so pretty, love sparkly colours.

All of them look so pretty!

Oh wow! These look very pretty. Such a cute idea too.

The Essie polishes look so pretty... especially the light blue... I’m looking forward to seeing the colours of Pisces, especially the lip glosses...

SUCH a huge fan of this whole trend! Beyond gorgeous

So many pretty colours!

What an awesome presentation ! I think they are here to stay if the products are as good as they look -WOW !

I'm not sure if the fad will stay or fade. The products are pretty and sparkly though and we know pretty, sparkly things make a lot people pull out the plastic. At the end of the day whether or not I'll buy something depends on whether I like the shade and think I will use it, not because of the name.

Love celestial make up. The Chi Chi palette was the first thing I saw.

Oooh pretty! So shiny and it looks so smooth!
