Indie makeup & Handmade shop owners


I’ve decided to put together a page of safe and awesome indie makeup & handmade shop owners(soaps/lotions/other beauty goodies). It’ll sort of serve as an easy go-to for me when I’m looking for stuff, but it’ll be easy for others as well. So if you have recommendations or are a shop owner and would like me to list you, either comment here, or shoot me an email with an image you’d like me to use to make a 125×125 image[If you already have a 125×125 image, even better!]. I’ll be sporting a couple on my sidebar with a link to the rest and there will also be a link up in the menu.

With that said. I love reviewing products, so if you’re a shop owner and would like to send a couple of samples I would be totally willing to review your product and post photos and/or swatches if applicable. I’m also completely open to hosting a giveaway for product. I’m not opposed to forcing my husband, daughter or cat to try products if needed either! ;) Alright I wouldn’t force them to… Okay maybe my husband. But yes totally open and willing to do any of the above, just contact me. I love discovering new shops to share with my friends, especially small shops owned by people who love what they do. :d

About me

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 34! Sometimes I like to blog about my life and what is going on, but not often anymore. I hope you enjoy my blog posts!

  • Hey Manda! I’d love for you to include my shop! I do have a couple of 125×125 logos you can use. However, I’m out of town right now, so I don’t have access to my usual computer.

    Luckily, a couple of the lovely ladies who reviewed LC included the logos in their review, so just choose which one you’d prefer to have here on your blog:

    Let me know via Twitter or email if you need any more information!

    Thanks in advance for compiling this list…I have a feeling my wallet will not be too happy about it ;)

  • I don’t have the links off hand, but I have a “companies” page on my blog that I started, too, lol. The names are there, but no links yet. (bad blogger!)

    weird, I dont know why my comments arent showing up!! lol.. but any image off my etsy would be awesome and I’d love to be included!
    I make cold process soaps, milled soaps (all from scratch, vegan!) lotions, scrubs, body butters (also all from scratch! no bases here!) lip balms (not vegan, beeswax and lanolin) bath bombs, bath bomb cupcakes,soy wax candles, beeswax candles, and I’m developing a line of mineral makeup that will HOPEFULLY launch in September, after being fully tested.

    • I think my comments died last night. haha One of mine wasn’t showing up either. :(

  • I’d love to be included! Any pics off my site are fine to use.. I’ve ordered boatloads of supplies to begin making mineral makeup.. I’m shooting for a release around September but I’ll be sending them to bloggers such as yourself to review before then.
    In the meantime I make Cold process soap, Body butters and Lotions (all made from scratch, we do not use bases), sugar scrubs, lip balms (all natural, but not vegan, we use beeswax and lanolin), bath bombs, bath bomb cupcakes, beer soaps, shaving soaps.. the list goes on. My biggest joy is developing new products.
    We also do beeswax and soy wax candles! Due to shipping costs I sell alot less of them online as I do at market and wholesale, but they are still a big passion of mine and you’ll find a few of them on my shop :)
