Portland Black Lipstick Co.! I love their black lipstick, it’s the best I’ve found so far! C: you should check them out and maybe do a review on some of the shades (they do more than black). They are SO awesome.

I love BFTE (Beauty From The Earth) Cosmetics, especially their eyeshadows and Madison Street Beauty. And I LOVE indie polishes. My favorites are probably Mentality, Delush, ellagee, and Daphine. Oh, and I don’t know if A England is considered an indie, but they’re in my top five polishes, too. 🙂

I just received a delivery from Fyrinnae this afternoon – my first purchase from them, after reading your reviews of their products – and I am really impressed. I’ll definitely be buying from them again!

Does Rouge Bunny Rouge count as indie? If so, I am in love with that brand.
Eager to see what others list – I love discovering new (to me) brands!

I love Sugarpill so much but I love Fyrinnae too, and Morgana Cryptoria. Haus of Gloi if we’re counting scents and definitely Hare Polish, but I’ve been meaning to order from Darling Girl Cosmetics, Portland Black Lipstick Co., and Geek Chic Cosmetics as well.

I don’t really shop “indie” brands. Unless I can pick up an item in-store, I don’t typically feel the hassle of shopping online is really worth it when there are just so many great brands/products more readily available. The only brand I’m even considering is Sugarpill, but I’m going to hold off a bit longer, after the New Year, to see if there are any new offerings, so I can just do one haul.

Eyes, lips: Fyrinnae, Shiro, Detrivore

Bath & Body: One Hand Washes The Other, Darling Clandestine, Solstice Scents, Haus of Gloi

Nails: KB Shimmer, Cult Nails, Rescue Beauty Lounge, Takko Lacquer, Rainbow Honey

I just ordered a lipstick from Portland Black Lipstick Company! They’re the first indie brand I’ve bought from but I’ve heard so many great things about them I couldn’t NOT order! (And they don’t just make black lipstick… Though from what I’ve seen, theirs is definitely the best there is!)

Seemingly everything — To name a few, in no particular order: Epically Epic, Fyrinnae, Darling Girl, Femme Fatale, Persephone, Shiro, Geek Chic, Sugarpill, Haus of Gloi, Aromaleigh, Meow Cosmetics, Detrivore, Love Hues, Silk Naturals, My Pretty Zombie, Solstice Scents.

Almost nobody ships outside of the US, so none. I’ve bought from sugarpill in the past, and fyrinnae does ship but seems to take a long time, I don’t loved products enough to buy again unfortunately.
