Postal Problems

postal-rates-2

We’d hoped to tell you everything was waiting to be picked up by the USPS right now. But there’s one small problem.The orders are now all wrapped and labeled and ready to go, but the US Postal Service requires that they must be sent in USPS-provided packaging. So once those arrive, the original packages go into those and they can finally be on their way. The difference between ‘choose your own box’ and the Flat Rate Envelope isn’t catastrophic in US-packages, but when sending abroad it rises to surprising figures. So one more bump on the road to Gothmas, but we’re almost there!

Lip Scrub Updates

Rejoice, o ye dark and gloomy (or light and cheerful, we don’t judge!), for the labels have finally arrived and that means that the lip scrubs will be shipped out on Monday, just in time for Gothmas!

Remember that Gothmas is the time of warmth and spices, candles and good food, relaxation in the soothing darkness. Strip the stress away like a bad fashion decision and take time to just be and breathe. Read a good book. Have a chocolate. Or two. Wrap up the year before the new one begins, and remember to pamper yourselves a little from time to time.

Lips Like Sugar

It’s October, nearly Halloween, the time when dark shadows seem to fill the world and the first breeze of winter frost threatens us. It’s the time when we want to stay indoors, curl up with something warm and indulge in strong colours and enticing scents. It’s the time when everyday luxuries become necessities of life, the small pampering moments turn into a lifeline toward spring.

It’s also the time when those who live Halloween every day of their lives get to enjoy and flourish their oranges and greens, purples and blacks without standing out. It’s the time when the rest of the world catches up with us for a few strange days.

This year it’s also the time when Beautiful Freak Cosmetics opens its doors on the side of the screen where makeup is more than a visual sensation, it’s a tangible pleasure in its own right. For that very reason our first products are gothic lip scrubs, designed to make your lips soft while offering you an indulgent moment of scents and tastes that gets you in the right mindset to embrace the dark season, whether it be just the autumn, or all around the year!

There are five different flavors that we offer all year round, and a seasonal exclusive just for Halloween! The regular ones are Coffee, Sex and Cigarettes, Sugar & Spice, Bitter for Sweet, Pink Orange Red and SubLIME Ravings. The seasonal exclusive is called Skelotim, which is honey-vanilla to celebrate the season of candy corn.

The lip scrubs are all vegan except for Skelotim, which includes honey. All of them include vitamin e, sugar and coconut, hazelnut or grapeseed oil to nourish your lips naturally while scrubbing the dead skin away gently. Tastes vary between the decadent mix of dark chocolate and black cherry of Bitter for Sweet, ginger, cinnamon and cloves of Sugar & Spice, coffee and hazelnut of Coffee, Sex & Cigarettes, cranberry and orange of Pink Orange Red and lime and ginger of SubLIME Ravings.

If you want to stock up on delicious tastes and receive an exclusive special flavor, choose the Multipack!

Find your moment of indulgence in the darkness, test the flavors and get yourselves Lips Like Sugar: sweet and almost addictive!
