Fall is Live!!!!

Fall is live on the site!  We have a brand new lippie formula- Hyper Glosses.  They're thick, creamy, moisturizing, very glossy, and wear for a long time.  We've also made a change to the lippie lables, and the new stock seems to be much more durable, and they stay on better too!  All of the new lippies have them, and we'll be phasing them in as we make new batches of the other lippies.

BHA is also back!  We've reformulated it a little bit.  The old BHA used a willow bark extract, and it was great BUT you couldn't actually do anything with it as a formulator.  You couldn't add a preservative (it didn't need it, but still), you couldn't change the pH- nothing.  The manufacturer's spec stated a very broad pH for different batches.  They always stayed in the lower end of the spec, but you want the low pH if you're using it as an exfoliator, and there were no guarantees.

The new BHA is still alcohol-free, and extremely gentle.  They've dissolved the salicylic acid in a naturally derived surfactant base, and it works beautifully.  It is ok as a leave-on product even with the surfactant in it (it's used at a low usage rate).

 I started playing with the new stuff last year, and have been incredibly impressed with it.  I think it's a great replacement for the willow bark extract, and as the formulator I feel a lot more comfortable sending out a product where I can control all of the variables, and add a preservative.  I don't like changing formulas on you like that- this one seemed very necessary.

You may want to sample it before you go for the big bottle, but I think you'll like it.

We also have metallic Velvet Mattes!  Check out Mischievous- it's stunning!

And all new eye colors.  I did check out the Modern Romance palette, but opted not to clone it.  Instead I made colors that were pretty similar to the ones in Modern Romance, but I made them just slightly different so they can match the existing colors on the site.

Check out Holo Back!  I saw a post about the Milk Holographic highlighter, and it looked so beautiful.  I dropped everything, ran back into the lab, and whipped this up.  It's stunning, and such a fun product to have in your collection.

We also made a new blush- Dainty.  I hope you love it!  It matches Stripped really well.

Thank you for all of the great suggestions, support, and for just being wonderful folks.  We know that we wouldn't be here without you, and are just thrilled that you're on this journey with us.
From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU!!!!!

Spring is Live!!!!

Spring is finally here!!!!!  We have a wonderful assortment of new goodies for you!

First- we're trying a reformulation of the lip balms. The old ones were good, but I wanted a base that let the favors come through a little better.  The new formula uses non-GMO organic Canola oil instead of the Olive Oil, and I really like it.

The all new flavors are Peach, Pink Lemonade, and Watermelon!

Then we do have a Silk Naturals Plenty of Peach Palette!!!  It's a total of 18 shades- some you already know and love, and 13 all new ones!  It's a really nicely balanced palette with a little it of something for everyone in it.

We also have some all new lippies!!!!  We went glossy this time with 4 new Slick Sticks.  Be sure to check out Petticoat- it's the glossy version of Garter.  It's one of those great keep it in your purse, goes with anything kind of colors.  

We also have a special gift with purchase:
It's a mini makeup bag that's perfect for holding a few lippies in your purse.  It's yours with any purchase over $40 until April 29 or while supplies last.

Thank you all for your kind support!  I hope you find something you love in the new collection!

Valentine's Collection is Live!!!!

The Valentine Collection is live on the site!
For starters we have a gorgeous trio of eye shadows that are made to compliment colors like Parallel, and Analog- lovely romantic colors that are feminine without screaming little girl.

Then we have a new twist on glows!  We're introducing Highlight Powders which compare to the Anastasia Beverly Hill's Glow Kits.  These are stunning- there's a little bit of interference pigment in them, and it gives them such a rich finish.  They're more pigmented than our regular glows, blend beautifully, and 100% Vegan.

We also have a great brush to go with them.  It's perfect for precise application, and smooth blending.

We also have 4 new lippies!

Lastly, I do have a bit of a sad announcement.  We are discontinuing the Cream Eye Shadows.  The preservative system we typically use has a shelf life of 6 months.  After that the pH begins to drop, and they can become uncomfortable to wear.  We really have to keep your safety in mind, so we're discontinuing them until such a time as we can find a natural preservative that works well in them.

They are all marked down to $1.49 while supplies last!

Thank you again for all of your wonderful support.  I hope you enjoy the new goodies!
