Impulse Cosmetics


Hello, Fireflies!

Have you heard of Impulse Cosmetics?  I don't remember how I heard about this little Indie cosmetics company, but they have some really cool, wild makeup.

I decided to try some of their lippies and eyeshadows.

Impulse Cosmetics' 'claim to fame' as it were is their opaque, matte lipstick. Dahlia, on the end, is one of those.  The rest are from their new line of Metallics.  In order, from left to right: Thrill, Tough Love, Forget Me Not, Boggart, and Dahlia.

Impulse Cosmetics Thrill, Tough Love, Forget Me Not, Boggart, and Dahlia.

Here you can see each one matched up with its name.  The colors are vibrant! I wish they were in a real lipstick bullet and not a tube, because I had a little trouble with application.  I am going to have to invest in a good lip brush, I think.  I've only tried Boggart, the emerald green, on my lips so far, and it was pretty patchy when applied straight from the tube.

Thrill, Tough Love, Forget Me Not, Boggart, and Dahlia.

In addition to the lippies, I bought their signature eyeshadow primer, Glam Glue, and three mineral shadows.  I love their packaging!

I love their packaging!

I haven't tried this on my eyes yet, but I found it pleasant on the skin.  It feels light and a little bit sticky, and you can't really see it on its own.


I swatched the three shadows over the Glam Glue.  Wow!  Left to right: Poseidon, Macabre Moon, and Hocus Pocus.

I've never seen colors like these.  If you'd like to see more from Impulse Cosmetics, you can find them on HERE on Facebook and their Etsy shop. (not affiliate links)

  4. oh my god I can't thank you ENOUGH for bringing this into my life. I have been eyeing all sorts of brands lately looking for some out-of-the-box lipstick colors. I have found a few brands but since they were moderately priced, I've been holding off. But these are priced SO well and the sample sizes and prices make it SO much better! I just got 5 lipstick samples and 2 eyeshadow samples, along with a sample of their eyeshadow base. I can't WAIT to get them!!! I am so excited but it's also a relief to know that if they don't blow me away, I won't feel like I spent a fortune! Thanks again for posting about these, I think it will be a match made in heaven. P.s. hocus pocus was one of the ones that I got! I almost got macabre moon too but held off. Too funny that we had our eyes on the same ones :) Sorry this was a novel. I'm THAT stoked on it.
