I used to love their old lippies from 15 years ago. I remember having a few of Fyrinnae colors. I used to get samplers of their wilder colors for Halloween. Around 18 years ago, my friends and family dressed up as generic superheroes for Fantasy Fest and I did everyone’s make up from Fyrinnae samples.

I used to love Silk Naturals. They have mostly loose shadows but I keep a few colors on hand. I always go there if I like just one color in a palette to see if they tried to clone it. Dark Arts (gorgeous olive green), Vine (another green) and Saddle Up (UD Side Car inspired) are repurchases for me. I haven’t in a while, but I use to press their powders into pans for travel. Their pigments have no fillers, like Fyrinnae.

I forgot to add, Silk Naturals also has great lip glosses and lip stains.

Another brand that I have loved for almost 20 years is Cat Cosmetics. Her eye shadow is absolutely fabulous.

Fyrinnae definitely deserves more attention! Their Pixie Epoxy is one of my staple products. As for other brands… I’d say Glaminatrix Cosmetics – all of their eyeshadows are A+ in my book.

Also Necromancy Cosmetica for fun lipstick colours, Touch of Glam for super sparkly eyeshadows and Eccentric Cosmetics – they have a nice lipstick/lipgloss formula and I’m keen to try their colourful eyeliners! Oh, and Crow & Pebble have nice eye primers.

I love Terra Moon Cosmetics. I always get complements when I use their iridescent chameleons as a topper to make a halo eye.

Rituel De Fille. I’m really not sure why bigger youtubers don’t talk about them at all. The only people I follow who talk about them are smaller youtubers who generally talk about indie brands more. I know their products are a high end price point but I love them.

I am book-marking this page!!!

JD-Glow and Clionadh as well as Menagerie Cosmetics.

And of course Halo Taco for nails 😉

Good quality, super fun, unique, funky.

*Holo Taco*

One more: Static Nails…..not sure if it is “indie” or just a small company, but I really love them. They work really well and LAST.

I was thinking about other things:

Really Wild (Clothing)
Mercari (jewelry)
Justine Leconte (Clothing and jewelry)
Secrets in Lace (Vintage but modern underthings)

Rituel de Fille, Propa Beauty, Mented, Devinah, Terra Moons………. The list goes on! Fyrinnae definitely deserves to have attention since they have been around for so long and have stayed true to their brand all this time.

Yes! Fyrinnae for sure! Especially for the multichromes. Even their “regular” shadows are so, so good! One of my favorite lipsticks ever came from them, too.

My #1 favorite indie brand, and one of my favorite brands in general, is Aromaleigh. I highly recommend them, especially if you have sensitive skin. All of their products are wonderful!

Waiting here for Rachel’s comment. She is the guru of Indie brands and following her on Facebook and IG has given me so many glimpses into Indie brands. Personally, I only really started looking at Indie brands in the past few months. I love Give Me Glow, Clionadh, Devinah, Fyrinnae and Kaleidos.

On the subject of Clionadh, I can’t get over their amazing customer service. I have had a lot of interactions with smaller businesses and the amount of time they devote to making sure their customers are satisfied, is difficult to do even for big companies. I received an email yesterday that they have pushed my order through so that it will arrive in time for my daughter’s Advent Calendar. I had mentioned it in the comment section of my order and they contacted me back immediately. I had purchased as part of the November release. At the time I ordered, September, she said that they would do what they could and they did. Just really appreciative and looking forward to their expansion. Thank you, Leigh.

You make me blush! I don’t feel like a guru. I’m just good at researching and following the real gurus, such as Amy Loves Makeup and her IG @Indiemakeupspotlight, Annette’s Makeup Corner, Katie Marie, Phyrra Nyx and her fab Facebook group members.

I haven’t gotten to try Clionadh yet, but they’re on my list.

I only say it cause it’s true!! As far as Clionadh goes, I have had a couple of interactions with them and all have been really pleasant and professional. They are expanding and hope to have a system in place to take more orders and process them in a quick manner. It is hard to transition from a kitchen table business to a mass produced market. Hopefully it will happen quickly and that quality doesn’t suffer. I think you will love them.
I haven’t been on Facebook much as I was ill for quite a little bit but hope your migraines are better.

There are a couple Australian ones I want to try. Glaminatrix is one. I can’t remember the name of the other one off the top of my head. Once the pandemic is under control and mail service is back to normal, I want to make some orders.

I think there are many, including Fyrrinae. Black Moon Cosmetics, Terra Moons, Kaleidos, Devinah, Apocalyptic Beauty, Notoriously Morbid, My Pretty Zombie, Igneous Cosmetics, LunatiCK Cosmetics Labs, Nomad, Menagerie Cosmetics, and Musee Beauty.

Fyrinnae –though I’ve been a customer of theirs for years. Quality products. And I LOVE their perfumes too!!
Meow Cosmetics -if this store ever closes I think I will cry because their mineral foundation is my HG.
Devinah and Terra Moon deserve more hype.
JD Glow and Give Me Glow, though I do think they are more known now than even a year ago.

I just tried Fyrinnae for the first time. I’m enjoying the multichrome in Ravishing. I have yet to try the Pixie Epoxy which I’ve heard great things about. It should arrive within the next week.
