Indie Interview: innocent+twisted alchemy
Awww yeah! Linda from innocent+twisted alchemy answered my silly interview questions. Enjoy!
Luna: How long have you been making cosmetics, why did you start and do you have any future plans for new shades/products?
Linda: I have been making cosmetics since 2009 so about 3 years. My store hasn’t been opened for long but I was testing out formulations and such. I’m a creative person and like trying out different things to venture into. Most of the time, I lose interest but for some reason creating cosmetics was a lot of fun for me and I just want to keep doing it. I used to be into the beauty community on youtube a lot and discovered that you could create your own, so I took the plunge.
I have a ton of collections planned out. Half of them are based on my own comic ideas. As for new products, I’m still testing out some formulations on pressed blushes. But honestly, I love making eyeshadows the most.
Luna: What is your favorite eyeshadow that you make?
Linda: My favorite eyeshadow that I’ve made is probably “Grieving Flame” [the new formulation]. It’s, also, my best seller. I think it’s mostly because I have a hard time making duochrome shades (though, I’m trying!) and “Grieving Flame” is a definite strong duochrome and a huge success in my opinion. I, also, really like making my “Hell Wonderland” colors. I think it’s fun to base them off of my own artwork.
Luna: What is your favorite eyeshadow from another indie company?
Linda: Oh gosh! I love a LOT! I really like Darling Girl’s “Taupe a la Mode”, Fyrinnae‘s “Meerkat”, and MaddStyle’s “Mystery Meat”.
Luna: Would you rather be a Crow or a Bat?
Linda: Can’t I be a hybrid? That would look kind of funny though. Honestly, I don’t know… ^_^;
Luna: Is there anything else you’d like to add?
Linda: Thank you so much for the opportunity! And I’d like to thank everyone for their support! It means a lot to me!!! ^___^
Thanks so much for answering my questions. I love your shades. Most may not be duochromes but they are gorgeous and complex. I would definitely like to see pressed blush. I think you will be able to make some gorgeous shades. Your art is amazing too. You’re suck an awesome artist.
