Every once in a blue moon, you might encounter a company or an individual that exhibits exceptional customer service. I was fortunate enough to have just such an experience recently with Camp Cosmetics.
Camp Cosmetics is based in Glen Ellyn Illinois, and I heard about them via the ever so delightful Kristin Gehm on YouTube (if you aren’t already watching her channel, YOU SHOULD BE! She’s so genuine and relate-able and just a pure delight to watch). Kristin had nothing but positive things to say about the company as a whole and is actually collaborating with them on a five pan eye shadow palette that is currently available for pre-order.
I was slightly apprehensive about placing an order because all orders currently can only be placed by email or telephone and the company’s website does not include photos of their products. However, Kristin dedicated a video to swatching everything that she had from the company and so I took a chance and shot an email to Michael, the owner of the company. You guys, he responded within 15 minutes and I had an order form in my hot little hands (actually on my overheated mobile, but that’s practically the same thing right?) within an hour. Michael was truly delightful, it was like exchanging emails with a good friend, he was personable and helpful and I was already impressed.
Sooo…this post is getting long. I’m feeling chatty today and you my dear reader are my captive audience! Muahahaha!! (queue thunder and lightning) (I don’t think I’ve ever spelled queue correctly on the first go in my entire life).
ANYWAY. Within about five days I had goodies in my mailbox! Michael even threw in some bonus stuff! Just because!
So on to the good stuff (about damn time…)
Now ya’ll know it’s actually impossible for me to resist a good orange
anything blush: So enter Glampuss, a golden orangey frosty pan of AWESOME.
Camp Cosmetics also has this neutral/cool brown blush that looked perfect for contouring (HA! Like I can actually contour!)
Blush in Monogamy
Gold/bronze eyeshadow is my jam man. Check out this honey in Gypsy!
Excessive swatching is also my jam. Obviously. But on these frost shades, you get such multidimensional colors depending on the light’s angle so I’m trying to convey that to the best of my wee little iPhone camera’s capabilities. You’re welcome.
Next are two Lip Lavas, and a quick note, Sex Drive smells deliciously like vanilla (although it’s fairly subtle and the scent doesn’t stick around) but Glamazon just smells like lipstick. Not quite sure if that’s normal or not.
You can find all of the contact information on the Camp Cosmetics website, and I’m sure that if you have any questions, they will be more than happy to help you out.
Eye Colors: $16.50
Cheek Colors: $18.50
Lip Lavas: $19.50
So the pricing is a tad high, so that’s something to keep in mind. I obviously can’t give a comprehensive review yet, but I think that the quality so far feels like a high end product.
It is also worth noting that the eye and cheek colors come depotted so you’ll want to have a zpalette or something along those lines that you can put the products into.
Here’s a quick bonus eye look I did today with Gypsy all over the lid and a few shades from the new Hard Candy palettes (dudes, I’m loving these…seriously…they’re pretty good).
If you stuck with me through my rambling and all those pictures, you’re a freaking rock star. Go get yourself a cookie!
