Started in February of this year, Korpse Kosmetics features vibrant, mineral based eye shadows, blushes, face powders, and lip creams (a lipcream is like the love child of a lipstick *buildable opaque color* and a lip gloss *shiny and not too sticky*)! Today, I interviewed the lovely founder/C.E.O. Kimi herself.
Your company's name is so awesome! What inspired you to name it Korpse Kosmetics?
I was inspired to name it Korpse Kosmetics because my nickname was KimiKorpse. I also have a fascination with the undead; vampires, zombies, all that kind of stuff. Because of this, I thought it would be fitting since I wanted the names of my shadows to have gothic names and terms. Thus, Korpse Kosmetics was born!
So very awesome! What made you want to start your own company?
Well, I have always looked up to the independent indie makeup companies and I really wanted to start my own line. I researched everything for about 2 years and wanted to make sure I had a line that was different and suited my personality.
Which brings me to my next question. When did you interest in makeup start?
My interest in makeup started when I was about 13. I only wore all black makeup from 13-17 but then ventured into some color and never looked back!
Good thing too! Now, what would you tell someone who's NEVER tried mineral makeup, about purchasing some from your company?
I tell them that mineral makeup is all natural and you dont have to worry about parabins or unwanted ingredients in the makeup. You rarely hear about mineral makeup damaging the skin, if ever, and it doesnt break out your skin like some pressed makeup can.
I'm loving everything your company represents :D, Do you have any new products in the works?
Yes I have several new colors in the works and also a few celebrity inspired collections. We are also working on more blushes and nail polishes in the near future.
