@ Also give Kiss My Sass a try. She has several products that are dupes of Lush scents and are pretty dead-on. She usually has super fast shipping as well.

Good, cause it took me way too long to figure out what HoG stood for  :lol:

 

ROFL, if I hadn't seen used in context with "Haus of Gloi" spelt out, I'd still be scratching my head! And I constantly confuse GDE and DG, whoops!

Yup, a glossary thread is on its way!  I'll pin that one so it's easy to find.

Haha so good. I was reading this thread quite a few pages back and kept seeing "HoG" and was like WHO IS THIS INDIE PIG?!  :lol:  A glossary will be very useful to newbies like me.

Thanks for all the suggestions, ladies! I have an additional question then --- do any of these indie companies also do anything like donate to local charities or support local community efforts? Not a requirement, but it would be lovely to know :)

I don't know of any that do it on a regular basis, but Hello Waffle just made a donation to a local animal group (in her area of Canada) from her Kitty Kingdom collection. I believe Notoriously Morbid recently made a donation from some of her items or a collection to a medical group/research that was of interest to her. I'm sorry I'm kinda vague, I'd have to go back in this thread to specify the groups that were donated to, I'm just going by my memory, which isn't perfect! ;)

A cute indie pig can be found at Tater Rounds Beauty, on Etsy. Not to mention some good-quality, budget-friendly makeup!

Aromaleigh has a shadow which benefits an autism-related charity, the name of which I'm brainfarting on at the moment.

Dear friends: I seek your advice.

 

I have a friend who likes LUSH, and I would love to get her some different indie bath/body products (mainly because I don't want to brave Tyson's after Black Friday...i tried to last year and it was Not Good lol). She says in particular she likes soaps, bath washes, and bath bombs. I've heard very high praises of Haus of Gloi... any other brands I should consider?

Not sure this counts for Indie, but Basin white has bath bombs which rival Lush's for size and fizz. Their Lemon Sugar is my favorite; there are no Lush fragrance dupes, but the quality is equal and slightly less expensive.

 

Queen Bee Apothecary has some excellent Lush fragrance dupes available in solid stick or oil form, as well as several different good-quality bath products. I can vouch for their version of Karma; I also have their version of the Avobath scent (called Bath Booster) in a solid stick perfume and it is virtually identical to the scent of my favorite Lush bath bombs. Queen Bee is an Etsy vendor and the full list of fragrances can be found on their "About" page.

 

As far as TAT, it took slightly over a week to get shipments from both.

Dear Sephora: We are over.

 

Dear pretty much every indie I've ever dealt with: I love you all.

 

(There is a SO PISSED OFF story here that I will spare everyone from having to hear. Suffice it to say that it's an issue I would *never* have with an indie.)

I got the test tubes as well. I know I got purples because I was thrilled @@Deareux is making vegan shadows. I'm allergic to carmine and it seems like every time I see a beautiful purple on an indie site, it almost always has carmine. Sometimes I just want to throw caution to the wind and wear them anyway, but itchy, puffy eyelids are not cute on anyone.

 

Since people were mentioning Lush, does anyone know of any indie company that makes salt shampoo? I've been using Big shampoo for about 5 years, but I'd love to find something else to try. I tried one from an etsy seller a few years ago, but it was too moisturizing for my hair. I can't even remember the company, just that it was in a blue tub.

    • I’m afraid that this resource does not become a “breeding ground” for viruses that will then spread at the speed of light. Therefore, I advise all visitors to read the https://thinkmobiles.com/blog/best-free-antimalware/ blog, which clearly states why this or that antivirus and its characteristics are used. Just do not be indifferent to these problems and selfish.
    • Careprost is a regenerating agent that was originally developed to treat hypotrichosis and restore healthy eyelash growth. The product is a sterile solution that should be applied externally, treating them with the growth lines of the upper eyelashes and eyebrows.  Perfect eyelashes complete the look of your eyes; they add beauty to you and make you look attractive. Fuller eyelashes not only define your eyes but also sharpen your facial features. Eyes with long lashes look bigger and brighter. Whatever might be your skin’s complexion, your sharp features make you glow even in your dark skin color. The cosmetic market has a wide variety of eyelashes of different colors, length, density, and curvy ones etc. which you can wear with ease. But are these fake eyelashes are much being easier to apply or they are actually hassled. Putting fake eyelashes is a tough task and make the process troublesome is to make them intact for a long duration, controlling your hands to not to touch them. Using fake eyelashes is a temporary solution; it does not give you a natural look.
