When Painted Ladies Expert Jessi tells me about one of her favorite things, I tend to listen, since this lady has an amazing eye for the greatest products out there. So when she mentioned Shiny Mama Cosmetics in her recent ”must have” list, I was intrigued.
Shiny Mama Cosmetics was founded in late-2007 by an employee of the now-defunct Tony n Tina Cosmetics line – the one with all those amazing glitters and pigments. Yana Chupenko, the original “Shiny Mama”, punk rock star, and all-around cool person, started Shiny Mama Cosmetics to introduce luxury cosmetics to the masses, and is surely delivering on that promise.
Decadence, opulence, and debauchery – now that is an unique concept in the cosmetics industry, and Shiny Mama’s tagline. Besides bringing gorgeous shimmers, glitters, and creamy pencils, the packaging is adorable — hello, little spoon attached to the glitter container? Fab!
The line has a focus on the Law of Attraction and Creative Visualization, which is something that I absolutely love. As Yana says, “Shiny Mama Cosmetics is a fairy tale, a dream, and a whimsy of imagination.” If you can dream it, you can be it, and with the help of Shiny Mama, we can help make our inner light shine like diamonds.
A big fan of Painted Ladies, Yana is offering up a super cool prize to one lucky reader – one glitter all, one shimmer all and one gleam all, worth $42.50. You have until Sunday, October 11th at 12 noon PST to enter, and it’s simple as leaving a comment. Good luck!
