How FSC Came to Be

Our story is generally summed up as this
"Tired of paying for overpriced cosmetics and natural products; and out of the curiosity of two inquiring minds; with a little love and support Firestarter Cosmetics was born. We believe that bettering your life and the products you use does not have to come at a high cost."

However, there is a bit more to our story than a paragraph.
Mandy and Laura met while on the job. They were working in a retail chain, which will cease to exist in the upcoming year. They shared a love of several things, including bright colours...and brightly coloured eye shadow! Mandy, who has several allergies and sensitivities, was disappointed at her options of make up. Laura was tired of all of the "yucky" stuff in most of the make up she was using.
So, they set off on a quest. To provide a vegan friendly product, at a reasonable price to consumers who were searching for something more...something different. The outcome... Firestarter Cosmetics.

    When Laura isn't busy working on Firestarter Cosmetics, she enjoys spending her time with her boyfriend as well as her "zoo" (two fish, Alpha and Omega, two cats, Sparta and Pandora, and hamster, Jack). She suggests trying the Limey Lemon Set. :)
