Well the 'hairytale' continues!
I've managed to raise (almost) ONE THOUSAND dollars ($950 to be exact) in under 2 weeks.
I am so thankful to everyone who believes in me, my dreams and my ethos when it comes to natural, mineral, organic, safe, sans chemical hair, makeup and skincare products.
I am proud to announce that I have chosen my final products, and colour range. This will obviously grow and develop as my brand grows and develops, but I'm VERY excited to announce the first 4 products in my cruelty-free mineral cosmetics range:
- THE VENDETTA, my signature colour, a gorgeous, vibrant, voluptuous orange/red.
- de HAVILLAND, my all-time classic perfect red, and
- FONTAINE, my most favourite colour for brides, a sultry yet subtle dusty rose.
- CRUELTY FREE Mineral Bronzer
You can use this very versatile product as a blush, a contour, and even an eyeshadow! Often, I'll use this one product on myself in the morning when getting ready, its so quick and easy, and very complimentary!
You may also be wondering 'what's with these weird names?', well I shall enlighten you!
Everything started with Gemma Vendetta. Sadly not my real name, but one I created to model with, and subsequently its become my stylist persona.
Vendetta is a powerful word. It 'basically' means a feud, an on-going battle.
My on-going battle is with Multiple Sclerosis, after being diagnosed in 2007.
It dawned on me that the names of my lipsticks would belong to people or characters of the past (i.e. vintage) involved in family conflicts.
It seems a little disturbing perhaps, but I do like to be on the cusp of weird, generally. Just wait until you hear the others, their stories!
I can give you a clue to the next two colour names though... Mary, Queen of...?
And don't forget to PREORDER now!
