Today I wanted to talk about a few indie makeup brands that I had heard about recently & some of the things I plan on purchasing from them. Instagram opened my eyes to indie cosmetics brands. My insta was flooded with pictures of women wearing Lime Crime Velvetines. Slowly I began to see unicorns everywhere & eventually the led me to find other fun brands. Suddenly I am consumed with bold blues, deep burgundy wines & beautiful Easter like pastels.
I am not a woman who can contour, I have no clue what a highlighter is for & most days I am lucky if my eyebrows cooperate. You know can do though? LIPS! Beautiful & bold, pretty pinks & striking nudes. My makeup stash has everything even if I don't know how to use it. Honestly though I am starting to get interested in more & as my hunger to learn more about makeup grows, so does my interest in finding new & exciting brands.
This company only sells Liquid Lipsticks & a Skeleton hair clip. On the Pretty Zombie Cosmetics website they have 8 different shades of their Liquid Lipsticks available for $12 each. Unlike my Velvetines these are not kiss or smudge proof. I ordered 3 Witches which is described as a Deep Purple and ZomBettie which is described as a Pinup Red. I am very excited to try these two out & try 4 of their other shades. The ones I still want are:
- Purple Poison
- Pink Potion
- Black Cat
I also want to point out that customer service with this company is subpar. I emailed them the day I placed my order & it took 2 other messages for them to get back to me. As much as I love the idea of the company this might hinder my choice to order from them again. It took 6 days for a response.
Look out for that review soon.
What I like most about this company the range of colors I see with their lipsticks & the eye shadows I see intrigue me. I am not at all an eye shadow girl but I do see a few I might try. Here is my want list for Impulse Cosmetics:

I love wearing fake eyelashes so I figured that it would be fun to try more then my average drugstore eyelash choices.
The brand describes their lipsticks scent as “vanilla cake,” and it has a sweet, vanilla scent.
Here are the shades I want:
- Stupid Love - Electric Pink
- Shady Lady - Shadowy magenta & vaguely hot pink
- DGAF - Greyed out light blue
- 6Six6 - Red burgundy
