Ash Noir Cosmetics!

Hey guys! So I know I haven’t been updating the blog very much lately but trust me, I’ve been hard at work on other things, like making fabulous highlighters!

I thought you guys might like a little update so you can see what I’ve been doing! I hate half-assing things so I knew since the beginning that I wanted to do this the right way. I’ve registered as an LLC, got an EIN and vendors license, got a business bank account set up, have been working with a graphic designer, creating shades, exploring options for the weight and price of products and I recently just sent out my first batch of highlighter packages for testing! I’ve gotten a lot accomplished over the past few weeks and things are rolling along pretty smoothly!

I currently have 4 “finalized” shades but am hoping to launch with ~8 shades. If all goes well, I’d like to have my store up and running by December 1st so cross your fingers with me! 😛

Well, without further ado, I present to you Ash Noir Cosmetics!

Ash Noir Cosmetics

So let’s check out these shades and sneak peeks!

Roswell

Oh yeah, alien babe chic at your fingertips! Roswell is a mesmerizing shade of green with subtle hints of gold that’ll make you look totally out of this world! Har har.

Robo-Glow

Robots won’t have shit on you! Robo-Glow is an intense blue toned silver that’ll make you question what you’ve been doing with these various shades of gold all this time! Suitable for both androids and humans. (I’ll get better pics of this one soon!)

Incarnation

Incarnation is a gorgeous pinky-red color that makes a unique & killer highlighter shade while also doubling as a blush! When Incarnation catches the light, the results are straight up magical!

Moonbeams

Ohh Moonbeams, my baby. This was the first shade I started working on and the last of these 4 shades to “finalize ” because I made approximately 9483 batches trying to get it just right. Moonbeams is a universally flattering, natural and super dewy shade of highlighter with slight golden undertones and a whole bunch of bright, mega glowy goodness!

  1. non gold highlighters are my jam. I def will be checking these out when they launch. And good for you for taking this so seriously. Helps me take you seriously which is so so important when it comes to cosmetics. I can already sense that I can trust you with something I’d put on my skin and around my eyes. Shocking what sketchy things some girls will pay for and shame on the people that make them.

    1. Mine too! 😛 I mean, gold highlighters are great and all but once you have a couple, you pretty much have them all. And I’m so glad that you’ve said that! I really do want to do everything correctly & safely. But yeah, I’ve seen some crazy sketchy stuff during all of my research. One rather large company in particular sent me some “pigments” to try out. The pigments were 100% mica, they were selling them for like $9 for 2.5g AND every single jar was leaking mica all over the place. I obviously never did any looks or anything with these.

  2. Congratulations! I discovered your posts on reddit and then subsequently discovered your blog about a year ago and am so glad to see you growing and movin on up! Much love and hope you have loads of success! Your hard work – and insane skill – will pay off.

  3. These are awesome! I’m drawn to Moonbeams but can’t wait to try the others for when I’m feeling more adventurous. 🙂

    What type of powder brush do you recommend applying your highlighters with?

    1. Thank you!! I’m still working on figuring out international shipping but I definitely want to be able to ship internationally so here’s to hoping! <3

  4. I’m so excited about this!! I’ve always loved your looks on reddit and instagram and I’m glad that you’re putting out your own line.

    Btw, are you also going to bring out any pressed products?

    1. Pressed products are definitely something that I’d love to do in the future and something that I’ve been investigating. I don’t believe I alone could hand press enough products to keep up because it’s awfully time consuming. I’ve looked into machines a little but that’s a whole other world. But yes, in time I would totally love to be able to offer pressed products!

    1. Lol, my mom told me she thought a green highlighter sounded crazy but once she saw it she loved it! 😛 So glad you like it too!

  5. The fact you actually worked with a graphic designer and such makes me really happy. You’re really going all-out to make sure this business is flawless, and that says so much to me!

    1. Aw, thank you! I absolutely am. I want to make this company legitimate and trustworthy while putting out good products. I’m very much an all or nothing kind of gal! 😉

  6. Wow, all four are amazing!! I’m digging Roswell the most, I THINK… I also need to get my hands on Incarnation. Thanks for all the hard work you put into your blog, and congrats on the cosmetic line! I’m sure every shade is going to be unique and special! I am SO excited to see the final results 😀

  7. Finally a green highlighter! I’ve Ben waiting my entire life for Roswell. I’m so in love with the color and shine 💚 I can’t wait to purchase it!

  8. Hi! I found you on instagram and noticed you were based out of the Columbus area. I am a student at OSU who is obsessed with makeup

    1. I was wondering if you were going to be hiring any positions at your new company? I’m interested in getting into the makeup industry but it’s a little tough being in Ohio. Please let me know!

      1. Hey there! Thanks for the interest! For right now it’s just going to be me but I have no idea how quickly the company will grow. If I’m lucky, I might need an employee in the not so distant future. 🙂 Stay in touch?

  9. These are wonderful. I need all of them.

    Once your store is up & running I know where most of my extra money is going! 🙂

  10. I am seriously soooooo excited for all of these! You’re such an inspiration & I def look up to you! You really have no idea! You’re the one who inspired me to get into make up & not be afraid to be who I am! I wish you all the luck in the world with your makeup line. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  11. This looks INCREDIBLE, I don’t wear highlighter but this absolutely blew my mind. Your hard work definitely shows!!! Side note: I wonder what this would look like on dark skin? Wishing you all the best for your launch 😀

  12. I am new here, found you from a google search looking at your Jeffree Star lippie swatches (and started lerking on your site today due to your beautiful makeup looks.
    I have to say your highlighters look great! I have one similar to Incarnation and love it, and Roswell looks amazing!! Also, if you know what lipstick you used for the Roswell photos, I love it!

  13. I was randomly looking at a swatch for Melt Cosmestic’s Blow when I stumbled upon your page. So glad I did! Roswell just draws me in, so gorgeous! I would love to try that one along with Incarnation.
