Our Mission

We exist because makeup needed a makeover. At CRUSHXO, we believe makeup is a powerful tool. It not only has the power to make us look and feel more beautiful, it can also empower us to be brave, bold, and beat the odds.

So we’ve taken beauty and fueled it with purpose. We give 5% of net sales to charity.

We inspire real women to get involved with causes that matter to them. We track their contributions in real time so they can see their impact. We have the power to unite women with a sense of belonging and service. And we’re not afraid to use it.

Our products are infused with gemstones like Rose Quartz, Sapphire, Jade, Amethyst, and Tourmaline — with unique properties that promote positive energy, so you can radiate on a whole new level.

This year, our makeup, our mission, and the women united by it have the power to CRUSH fear, cancer, insecurity and gendercide from a place of pure love.

Be the Beauty be the change
