What we are all about
Lethal Cosmetics is an independent, PETA-certified vegan and cruelty-free makeup brand from Berlin, Germany. We formulate, produce and distribute professional-quality color cosmetics for an alternative audience of ethical makeup-addicts. Founded in 2016, our initial product offering includes our signature CHIMERA™ long-lasting liquid lipsticks in six deviant metallic and matte shades as well as our lineup of ultra-pigmented pressed eyeshadows. Our products are available in Germany, Austria and Switzerland through lethalcosmetics.com and soon in other countries via our own- and our partner stores.
Where we are coming from
In late 2015, we set out on a mission to create a new line of makeup products and along with it a new brand with a firm set of beliefs. We wanted to be empowering: a brand for those who defy labels, for those confident in their differentness or still in search of who they want to be. We wanted to fight indifference and all forms of cruelty, to be a voice of compassion for all living beings. If anything, we wanted to uncover the beauty of contrast – of color and darkness, of celebrating life and pondering mortality, of a kind heart and a fierce conviction.
We knew that we were going to be vegan and cruelty-free before we had a single product or even a company name. We also knew that we would not compromise on our values, nor would we settle for anything less than remarkable. It took us the better part of a year to formulate our initial line-up of liquid lipsticks and eyeshadows, to come up with a range of colors that we felt was original and genuine to our brand and to establish partnerships with a select group of suppliers, who share our stern opposition to animal testing.
Today, our once crude vision of a vegan and cruelty-free makeup brand is a staggering reality. We are proud of this achievement, but it is the continuing support from our fans that gives us the confidence and trust to assume, that this is only the beginning.
