Caitlin Donohue reported in her new column Street Seen about a badass breezy who began steering the local cosmetic scene toward a cruelty-free and bold (read: drag-friendly) future while broke and in college.
It got better: Blake Karamazov has successfully been making her Swagger Cosmetics for “any club kid, anyone interested in genderbending, androgyny” and, of course, anyone who is bored with bevy of non-vegan and flat, neutral palettes to be found in the Sephoras and Walgreens of the world.
With colors like “Ballin’ Outta Control” and “Rad Bitch” and directions to “Please Do Not Snort,” these long-wearing, conscious cosmetics have a uniqueness and charm unparalleled.
