5 Indie Makeup Brands You Need To Know About
Fun fact: Sugarpill was the first indie cosmetics brand I ever tried and blogged about. If your in the mood for a throwback, you can see the review I wrote about the Sugarpill Heart Breaker Palette and their loose eyeshadows back in 2012! Almost 4 years later and I can still say that I still love their products. I own almost every palette that they’ve made and the colors are incredibly pigmented and beautiful. You also get so much bang for your buck, since the shadow pans weigh .12 oz, that’s more than double the size of a MAC pan (.05 oz)!
Melt Cosmetics was founded by two Insta-famous ladies: Lora Arellano (who has worked her brushes on Rihanna) and Dana Bombar (who is a natural beauty, actress and makeup artist). The gal pals decided to pursue their quest for the perfect ultra-matte lipstick by starting their own cruelty-free brand of lip colors. The lip color line was such a success that they launched a few eyeshadow stacks too.
