Sparkledex and swaps!

A couple years ago Tempestinatpot had the idea for a sort of review directory to help newbies to the indie cosmetic scene easily find a good company to make their first purchase from. I thought it sounded amazing and volunteered to help with the creation of the wikia.

We turn to indie to support handmade, local, to find something that suits our lifestye (vegan) or sensitive skin. The Sparkledex was intended to be a place where you can find important information at a glance, and if somebody wants to find more information, a list of reviews and swatches. Basically, we wanted to help take the legwork out of being an informed consumer in the sometimes murky world of indie cosmetics.

It's been ages since I touched the Sparkledex and so many new companies have sprung up since it's creation - especially when it comes to nail polish! I want this to be a community effort, so please - go visit the Sparkledex. Even if you only go and link your reviews to company pages, that will be one less thing I have to do. 

My blogsale didn't go so well and I still have a ton of stuff that needs re-homing. I've decided to offer things for swaps instead :) email me at with what you'd like to swap for! Unless stated, everything is 90-100% full.
