I love purchasing from indie companies; not only do you get the satisfaction of supporting an artists, but you can get some really unique and high quality items! One of my favorite indie cosmetic companies, Glamour Doll Eyes, even has a monthly subscription service called the Of The Month.
Quick Run-Down: $8 a month makeup subscription service from the indie cosmetic company Glamour Doll Eyes (GDE); shipping is not included, so for the US, the total cost of the service is $11 a month; will ship internationally, shipping costs will vary accordingly (but the Of The Month itself is always $8); includes the Of The Month (OTM) eye shadow, which is a special, full sized loose eye shadow created only for that month in limited quantities (a full size GDE loose eye shadow retails for $6); will include extra products as well, either from GDE or from another indie cosmetic company; since this is an indie subscription, spots are very limited, so if you are interested in getting the OTM, your best bet is to join the Facebook group and sign up for the waitlist.
Leesha's Lacquer, a local Minnesotan nail polish creator! Leesha's Lacquer has been featured in an OTM before, and I've actually purchased some additional polishes from her Etsy. Normally, you also get an info card with some cute graphics and color description and ingredient information, but Vee, the owner of GDE, posted on Facebook that she forgot to include them in 90 or so of the mailers (it didn't fit in the box) and that if you didn't get one, you could let her know and she would include it in either your next order or your next OTM.
And that's the April 2016 Glamour Doll Eyes Of The Month! I thought this was cute theme, and a great companion to the Crazy Cat Lady Starter Kit we got last year. For $11, I think this a good value, especially since all the products are specially made/designed and are from indie cosmetics companies. Again, if you are interested in signing up for this subscription service, please join the GDE Facebook group and make to add your name to the waitlist.
Thanks for reading! <3
