Lethal Cosmetics Indie Makeup Haul
Hello beautiful people! Today’s blog post and video are on my Lethal Cosmetics Indie Makeup Haul. For those of you who don’t know, Lethal Cosmetics is a 100% cruelty-free and 100% vegan indie beauty brand. They’re located in Berlin, Germany. Lethal is a brand who responsibly buys their mica from child-labor free sources and under the supervision of independent auditors. Learn more about what makes an indie brand indie!
I do want to mention that Lethal Cosmetics ships fast, in my experience. They charged me $15 to ship via Fedex and it was here in 2 to 4 days. I was impressed by their shipping! And yes, everything purchased by me, all opinions are my own, as always.

Lethal Cosmetics Single Eyeshadow Swatches
I swatched these eyeshadows for my Lethal Cosmetics Indie Makeup Haul on bare skin using my fingers. My skin tone is very fair neutral to cool yellow undertone. I find my best foundation matches are very fair neutrals or cool yellows. My best matches currently are Milk Makeup Flex Stick Foundation in Porcelain, Smashbox Studio Skin Foundation in .1, Nyx Born to Glow Radiant Foundation in Pale, and Juvia’s Place Shade Stick in Tokyo.
Lethal Cosmetics Single Eyeshadows are $6 to $7 in price for .056 oz.
Eyeshadows are probably my favorite makeup product, despite being told that my hooded eyes are ugly and I should never wear eyeshadow. I ignore people who spout that kind of negativity these days. That’s why the majority of my Lethal Cosmetics Indie Makeup Haul is eyeshadow!

I’ve used Deceit in a ton of looks as a great way to deepen teals and purples without using black. Love Deceit so much!
Lethal Cosmetics Blushes Swatches
- Scatter – icy lavender with blue highlights
- Hybrid – lavender blush
- Nectar – peach blush
- Neophyte – honey yellow blush
- Quartz – beige bronzer with cool undertones
- Subzero – lilac high-shine gloss with blue green duochrome glitter lip gloss
- Phase – deep berry matte gel liner
This section of my Lethal Cosmetics Indie Makeup Haul isn’t all Lethal Blushes, but it is mostly blushes. I also included the highlighter, bronzer, lip gloss and gel liner in this group.
Lethal has several great looking gel liner colors to choose from. On my wish list is Buffer (white matte), Redux (black matte), and Bitcrush (neon pink matte). Gel liners are $15.50.
I wanted to try their Flux highlighter, but it only comes in a premade palette called Boreal. I already own the blush shade Nectar in that palette, and I’m not sure the bronzer shade, Atlas, would work for me, as it looks like it could pull orange on very fair skin like mine. Highlighters are $18.50 each and the palette I mentioned is $37.
The Lethal Blushes are absolutely gorgeous and I love the ones I own. Sanguine (true red), Tendril (ginger), and Morphology (berry) are on my wish list. I really adore this blush formula as it’s very easy to blend out. Blushes are $14 each.
Quartz is a fantastic ‘bronzer’ for contouring thanks to its beautiful cool undertones. Bronzers are $14 each.
Here’s some makeup inspiration with products from my Lethal Cosmetics Indie Makeup Haul.
For the above look I used Lethal Cosmetics Sequence, Spirit, Synth, Deceit, and Scatter to create the look, along with Danessa Myricks Amour on the eyes. I used Lethal Scatter, Quartz, and Hybrid on my cheeks and Lethal Subzero on my lips. See the full details of this Monochromatic Purple Makeup Look. I will be shooting a tutorial on this eye look.
I used Lethal Quartz and Hybrid on my cheeks in this look. See the full details at Black Moon Cosmetics Urban Myth Tutorial.
Numb vs. Circadian
Here’s a quick swatch comparison of Lethal Numb vs. Lethal Circadian. Numb is described as steel grey matte. Circadian is a grey with blue undertone matte. Circadian is nearly the same as my wall color in my primary bedroom. I love greys with a blue-violet undertone.
Lethal Cosmetics Indie Makeup Haul Final Thoughts
I’m very impressed with everything I’ve picked up in my Lethal Cosmetics Indie Makeup Haul. Lethal is my pick for my favorite new brand of 2020. I’m so happy I gave them a try! If you’re looking for a new indie brand, I recommend Lethal Cosmetics. Don’t be put off by the fact that they’re outside of the USA. Their shipping time is lightning fast.
