We're kinda jealous of all you October babies: You lucky girls have the mystery-charged, rainbow-flecked opal as your birthstone. Not only is it one of the prettiest gems out there, it's been a constant source of fashion #Inspo lately with its pretty iridescence.
But the color-shifting stone has also transitioned into the beauty world, and we couldn't be more excited. Today, Rescue Beauty Lounge debuted a new opal-inspired shade dubbed Ethereal ($20), a white hue swirled with shimmery pink and gold that is inspired by the inside of a seashell. It's a part of the new Fan 3.0 collection and it's totally gorge.
A couple of months ago, opal hair was trending on the 'Gram, where light-haired ladies were streaking rainbow colors through their locks. After coveting the trend for months, we've found a slew of other products on the market that will give you that mermaid-kissed effect, without permanent results.
Nars Hardwired Shadow in Opal Coast ($20)
Bite Beauty Opal Lip Gloss, Sephora ($22)
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal, Sephora ($41)
Make Up For Ever Diamond Power in White Mauve 3, Sephora ($25)
Sephora Collection Brow Enhancer in Pearly Opal, Sephora ($12)
These light-catching, iridescent treats are subtle while still completely striking. We're obsessed.
