Ethical, Responsible, Affordable Cosmetics.

I saw a news article one day about the struggles of being a vegan woman. In doing more research after reading the article, it became apparent to me that the cosmetics industry is getting away with far more than the average person realizes. Fish scales and animal fats in nail polish and eyeshadows? I consulted with a chemist--there's no reason to add things like that into cosmetics other than companies adding things to their ingredients list so no one can copy their formulas. I WAS ASTOUNDED! And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Testing on animals, inhumane mines and working conditions for micas and dyes...it's all just so unnecessary.

So I decided to try to put an end to it.

I researched until my eyes were bloodshot, my head hurt from all the information and my heart hurt from all the cruelty these companies are dishing out. I invested all of my bonus money (from working holidays and overtime) into my first polishes. And the response has been so overwhelmingly positive I just had to expand into more than nail polish. Eye shadows were the next logical step and we hope to be doing more than that in the future!

Our motto is to provide people with affordable, ethical and humane cosmetics. But we are more than that. We are a company that wants to give back to the community, we want to provide fun colors and pop culture themed items and most importantly, we want to show all these major companies that we are tired of not having a wider variety of ethical products with affordable price tags.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I will gladly customize a color just for you. I can even recreate colors that have been discontinued by other companies! Custom colors can sometimes take time to make. Typically if I don't have a specific color I can combine others until I get the right shade, but sometimes I have to order specific mica colors or glitters to get it just right. Please keep in mind, colors may vary slightly from picture to real life due to screens and lighting variables.

Wholesale availability

I will do wholesale sales, starting from 20 and more items in an order. Please contact me before you order and I will create a custom listing for you/your company with a finalized list of what items you are buying in the description box

Large orders

I will gladly do larger orders! 20+ items are considered wholesale, and will grant you a discounted price. If you need more than the quantity needed of a certain item, I will gladly increase the quantity available as long as I have the supplies to do so. If I do not have the supplies needed, I can place an order right away and will typically have your order in the mail in 1-2 weeks.

What happens if there's a problem with my order?

Please feel free to contact me directly! I usually respond within a few hours at the most and all issues can be typically be taken care of the same day.
