THE INDIE AND UNKNOWN BRANDS THREAD

Formerly known as: Indie brands and other not so talked about makeup brands

 

A place to discuss new, indie and not so talked about brands. There's a few brands I'd like to know more about but didn't want to start a thread for each so decided to start a thread for all those brands that we don't often hear about.

RE: THE INDIE AND UNKNOWN BRANDS THREAD

I recently received an order from a company called alter ego, pic below. I’m a little conflicted as they only have two items and they are both clearly dupes of higher end products, but at the end of the day I like the colors and they perform pretty well (though not nearly as well as the real deal ND Gold palette) so I guess there’s that 🤷‍♀️. While I still plan to one day buy the actual gold palette, it probably won’t be in my budget for several years if I want to pay off my student loans and etc. so this was great for keeping the FOMO at bay and it cost like $20

Re: THE INDIE AND UNKNOWN BRANDS THREAD

Two of my recent favourite palettes were from Menagerie Cosmetics.  I bought both the Feral and Dragon Child palettes plus two liquid lip shades.  The liquid lipsticks were great.  Not cakey, crumbley or over drying.

Re: THE INDIE AND UNKNOWN BRANDS THREAD

I was just coming to post this! I just got this today and it is SO CUTE! My bf heard me say that I don't want to mess up the kitties and he told me to buy another one hahaha Smiley Happy

Re: THE INDIE AND UNKNOWN BRANDS THREAD

@Yuumei @KaitTheKatfish  this is sooooo cute! ( of course) .. How do they swatch?? How’s the pigment??

Re: THE INDIE AND UNKNOWN BRANDS THREAD

It's so pretty I don't want to touch it... what do I do? I'm having such a hard time with this... I don't think I've EVER been so protective of an embossment before LOL Smiley Very Happy

Re: THE INDIE AND UNKNOWN BRANDS THREAD

Kaleidos Makeup... Futurism Set... $59 w/free shipping, or $24 each. Pans are on the smaller side... a tiny bit larger than Colourpop palettes pan sizes if you're familiar. These are also magnetic so you could switch the shades around if you like Smiley Happy

Deep Sea Luster Palette.. $42 and also gorgeous. This one has standard size pans, not small travel size like the set... and NOT magnetic just so you know (I was so sure that it would be that I busted one of my shadows trying to tap them out lol )

I ended up ordering all of these palettes and just got my second shipment... these are so beautiful I felt compelled to share... have a great day everyone!

Re: THE INDIE AND UNKNOWN BRANDS THREAD

Gorgeous @Yuumei ❤️ I love that middle one.  I’ve seen it used and love those shades.  

 

RE: Re: THE INDIE AND UNKNOWN BRANDS THREAD

@Yuumei these are so cool! Do you happen to have pics of swatches/ what’s your opinion on performance?

Re: RE: Re: THE INDIE AND UNKNOWN BRANDS THREAD

Just thought I'd share the next palette I started playing with... again these shadows are SO nice! I had busted one shade in the bottom corner so I re-pressed it with the help of rubbing alcohol and it performs just like the rest... considering it was a matte shade I am super impressed! I swatched the shades I've been using to give you an idea, every formula/texture is easy to use and super beautiful Smiley Happy

Re: RE: Re: THE INDIE AND UNKNOWN BRANDS THREAD

@Brutalitops   Hi there! Smiley Happy I think these are incredible.. I have been using my "least favorite" color scheme palette and truly LOVE these eyeshadows. I went ahead and swatched the one I've been playing with so you can see it on my skintone... I just feel it's not the most flattering color story on me but I'm still absolutely thrilled to have them all. The shimmer shades are so soft, like silk or something. I did have creasing the first day but that was easily remedied by using an eyeshadow primer afterwards... I'd say almost all shimmers tend to crease on me personally without primer though to be fair. I do feel like the two olive green mattes are pretty similar, personally wish one was a bit lighter for a better gradient. I only use one since they look so similar on my eyes. I love how deep the black is... it's so pigmented! If I'm this impressed with my "least favorite" I know I'm going to be blown away by the rest lol Smiley Very Happy

Re: RE: Re: THE INDIE AND UNKNOWN BRANDS THREAD

These colours are 🥰❤️ Love them.

Re: RE: Re: THE INDIE AND UNKNOWN BRANDS THREAD

@Yuumei Thank you so much! Honestly this was the one I was most intrested in as the colors are so unlike everything else I own and super reminiscent of the melt palette that just launched here on sephora. I'll definitely check them out!

Re: RE: Re: THE INDIE AND UNKNOWN BRANDS THREAD

Awesome!!! I also don't have anything like this particular one and that's exactly why I started wearing this one first. My eyes are hazel and I can find each of these shades in my iris... that probably sounds weird hahaha Smiley Very Happy  ... anyway, that's why I said "least favorite" since I kinda "wear" these colors regardless of my daily eyeshadow choices. I do love the colors though... I just tend to wear more pinks than anything Smiley Wink
