How Disability Led To Creativity

Sprkly's Glitter & Gloss was never a specific aspiration for me, I kind of majestically stumbled into it. It has been an incredible ride so far, but here's a little back story to satisfy the curiosity that made you click to this page 😉

You might be wondering what's up with all the unicorns. Ten years ago I was in group therapy for a mental illness. I was kind of a mess before the group, but I made some big life changes, and with the help I received in the group, I started to really feel better. Every week, we would all say a little bit about how our week went. One day, when it was my turn, one of the other group members said jokingly, "we don't want to hear from you, everything is unicorns and rainbows." At that moment I realized my life was really changing. And unicorns became a symbol of hope for me. I've been very stable for a long time now, and I still surround myself with unicorns as a reminder that there is always hope. It keeps me positive, and positivity is certainly what I hope to share through my little makeup business.

The name Sprkly came from my life long love for things that sparkle and shine. It's missing an A because it's also my gamer tag and sometimes you need to use an alternate spelling to get the gamer tag you want. Vowels are overrated anyway 🤷‍♀️

I'm also physically handicapped and I have limitations. I have a sweet husband and two teenage offspring who help me a lot. I found doing makeup to be an excellent therapeutic activity I can do myself, and over the last several years I've really gotten into it. See my personal makeup Instagram at @sprklygrrly to see what I've been up to. 660 posts and counting! I have always loved makeup as long as I can remember, and always had a special fondness for glitter and lip gloss. I collect both. It occurred to me one day that if I could just make my own it might save me a ton of money 😂 So I researched and learned and tested for months until I found the right suppliers and the formulas I liked best.

It was my eldest child who talked me into starting the business. I had no desire to, but they encouraged me to just try it out and see if I enjoy running a business. So far, so good!

Thanks for reading 💖

Frequently asked questions
What's the difference between Classic and Original Lip Gloss?

Both of our gloss formulas are creamy, dreamy and beautiful! Our Original Lip Gloss was created to be a non-sticky, hydrating gloss with a light tint and a yummy cookie flavor. Our Classic Lip Gloss was created as an alternative for those who prefer a more traditional, unflavored lip gloss formula, but better. It is more highly pigmented than the Original, lasts longer and is extra creamy.

Is your glitter safe for the eyes?

We use only cosmetic grade glitters. The US FDA has not approved any type of glitter as a cosmetic color additive, even though most "cosmetic" glitter is made from ingredients that are currently approved for cosmetic use. This does not mean that glitter is unsafe, but be advised that use of glitter as cosmetics is at your own risk.

Is your glitter biodegradable?

The short answer is no. Biodegradable glitter tends to perform poorly when used as cosmetics, with problems such as curling of the pieces and bleeding color. It is also four times the price of typical cosmetic glitter. Personally I would not purchase or sell a product that performs poorly for such a cost. Instead, we encourage removing your glitter as responsibly as possible. We recommend removing it using tape or a dry washcloth. It can be deposited into your trash, from where it will go to a landfill where it will have the least environmental impact. Avoid washing it down the drain. I'm always keeping my eyes open for more feasible biodegradable glitter alternatives, and I will continue to search for a more eco friendly product to offer.

Why does my Original Lip Gloss come out of the tube looking weird?

Our original gloss is made of natural oils and butters, which have a texture but melt beautifully onto your lips when applied directly. Over time, your gloss may start to appear grainy. Don't worry! That's just the yummy cocoa butter stiffening and does not mean it is expired. We recommend applying your gloss to your lips directly from the tube for the best consistency.

How do I get my Original Lip Gloss out of the tube? It's stuck!

Because of the natural oils and butters in our formula, it is temperature sensitive. Store this product at room temperature. If it becomes difficult to dispense or appears to separate, kneading the tube for a minute or putting it in your pocket will warm it up and redistribute the product.

How do you use the Magic Mixer?

Use one drop of the Mixer and a small amount of glitter, mix together with a brush and paint on as a liquid. We recommend using a setting spray after it dries to hold your design in place. It is not for use in the waterline. Avoid contact directly with the eyes. If it comes in contact with the eyes and irritation occurs, rinse with clean water or use artificial tears to soothe.

How do you use loose glitter?

For your maximum enjoyment of our glitters, we recommend using either a mixing medium such as our Magic Mixer or a glitter glue such as Nyx glitter primer. With the Magic Mixer, the glitter can be painted on as a liquid. If you choose to use a glitter primer, we recommend using a finger or our Glitter Applicators to tap the glitter onto your primed skin. A good setting spray afterward is always a good idea to seal your design in place.
