Indie Makeup companies!

So in light of the whole Orglamix debacle I went hunting for companies that so far have reputable reviews and products. :) If you have any to add to the list, or have information regarding any of these companies leave me a comment and let me know! I’m also going to throw this out there: If you own an indie company and would like to send me some samples I would be happy to post swatches and an honest review on your cosmetics. :D

  1. Dark Heart Designs – Eyeshadow, lip gloss.
  2. Meow Cosmetics – Foundation, concealer, blush, primers, eyeshadow, and more.
  3. Fyrinnae – Eyeshadow, blue, primers, and more.[1. Fyrinnae is closed for the moment while they catch up on orders.]
  4. Morgana Cryptoria – Eyeshadows, foundation, lipstick[2. I’ve heard her lipsticks are amazing!], liners, brushes and more.
  5. Sugarpill – I’m not sure if Amy’s products are considered indie, but she has amazing eyeshadow.
  6. Evil Shades Cosmetics – Eyeshadow, blush, lipstick[3. I’ve also heard great things about their lip products.], lip gloss, primers and more.
  7. Scaredy Cat Cosmetics – Eyeshadow packaged in some of the cutest containers I’ve ever seen!
  8. Hi-Fi Cosmetics – Eyeshadow, lip glaze, and other products.[4. Her shop is currently offline while she moves. Can’t wait for it to come back up.]
  9. Noella Beauty Works – Eyeshadow, and foundation.[5. Her shop is offline for the weekend I believe while she catches up.]
  10. Vicious Cosmetics – Eyeshadow. [6. I’ve read that at one point there were some concerns with how customer information was handled, but I don’t know how or if it was resolved. Does anyone know?]
  11. Concrete Minerals – Eyeshadow and primer.
  12. Brazen Cosmetics – Eyeshadow, glitter gel, lippies, and more.
  13. High Voltage Cosmetics – Eyeshadow, primer, blush and lipstick.
  14. Shiro Cosmetics – Eyeshadow, lipstick, and blush.
  15. Persephone Minerals – Eyeshadow. More importantly, Sailor Senshi eyeshadow! I love Sailor Moon. <3
  16. Geek Chic Cosmetics – Eyeshadow, blush, foundation, lippies.
  17. Antoinette’s Revolution Cosmetics – There’s no actual store right now. But the reviews I’ve seen are amazing.
  18. TKB Trading – I know they don’t sell eyeshadow exactly. But their mica works great over primer and Pixie Epoxy.
I run this blog! This blog is a personal blog for all things beauty related. I love swatching, reviewing and hosting giveaways. I’ve been blogging since I was 16 years old… That’s uh a long time. I am now 32! Sometimes I like to blog about my life and what is going on, but not often anymore. I hope you enjoy my blog posts!

    Would you be willing to put my company on the list? I’ve had reviews from a few companies and I’m currently working on project safe indie with Amanda of the eyes have it (and anyone else who wants to help) Thanks a lot!

      I can do that. :) Will take a look at your products. I’m trying to find new makeup that won’t irritate my skin. Thanks for letting me know!

    Oh yes and has AWESOME pressed eyeshadow which is insanely cheap. They have lots of other stuff too, but I have only tried the eyeshadow.

    I would like to add that Detrivore makes their own beautiful & safe eyeshadows :) Darling Girl Cosmetics also makes a variety of amazing products, but they are closed until April while the owner is moving. There is also Kiss My Sass (formerly known as Suds n Sass) and Sobe Botanicals. Sassy Minerals makes awesome stuff too. Also Fusion of Color cosmetics. These are all brands I have tried and can vouch for.

    Here are some I have not tried, but seem reputable and honest, and have been vouched for by other very reputable bloggers: Venemous Cosmetics, Face Candy Couture, Silk Naturals, RockABetty, and Linnaeus (she is brand new). The Starshine Company also seems reputable. From the UK there is Living Dead Grrl, and from Spain there is Lost In Makeupland. Beauty from the Earth makes original eyeshadows and have repacks, but they clearly mark them as such, and so does Glamour Doll Eyes.

    I have tried Joppa Minerals and Beautiful Girl Minerals as well, and though I was not impressed with the products, they are original. If I think of any more I will let you know :)

      Thanks! I’ll look into these. :) I hadn’t heard of them.
