Pink Stiletto Cosmetics was created in 2009. I am the owner of this unique brand and I want to open a Workshop/ Shop as well as get more help to create product faster to satisfy my customers. I was a single mother with 2 small children living in public housing due to a delinquent landlord, and only one fixed income. I jusr didn't feel like that was it for me. I felt that If I didn't try to get out and get out fast... that would be my life, my end, my children hiding in staircases when the shooting started and weekends hearing the loud and violent fights next door. I wanted more for myself, my children. Being a work oriented girl since the age of 14 it just wasn't ideal for me to sit and do nothing. After a long conversation with my aunt, I decided that I need to act on my passion. So with a few dollars I really didn't have and a basic outline I ran with it. It has not made me rich.. but at minimum at least, I no longer live where I did. It has changed my life, emotionally as well and is truthfully a huge part of why I continue on. I know my customers, they are my dolls! :-)

My passion is makeup and it's color and not in the way some collect it. My passion is creating it. Yes, creating it. Pink Stiletto Cosmetics is 95% handmade using top of the line ingredients right here in the United States. My brand use the least amount of fillers, preservatives necessary to achieve a functional and safe effect. It's makeup with a conscience. I don't want to put anything on your face that I wouldn't put on my baby. The product line entire product is hypo-allergenic and safe to use on the face and body. None of our lip products are artificially flavored. The products are high performance and high pigment. This means they show up vibrantly the first time and are true to the color in the jar.

It's been 2 and 1/2 years now and Pink Stiletto Cosmetics in still selling makeup. However, with a growing following there is more demand for the products and desire for faster processing time. Additionally most women would love to try before they purchase and that's okay... because 98% of women who try on Pink Stiletto do make a purchase. We’d like to make that a reality. It looks good and feels good.
So, now I need your help. I cannot continue to meet demand, create innovative solution oriented products to keep up with the Big Name competition alone. I need a small staff of at least 1 and an off site work space so I can produce more product and keep my existing customer's happy , while still producing new shades and products to attract new customers. The money will be distributed between rent for a small office/workshop, to pay a month or two upfront, electric costs and gas and food stipend for 1 intern and then a month of wages , and any extra equipment. If you believe in Pink Stiletto's vision to make every woman radiant, one woman at a time... please help be a part of this brand's growth. Thank you for taking the time to read my message and my vision.

To be transparent, I will post pictures, updates and receipts to prove the money went to what I said it would be used for and I will also chose 1 person who contributes to come on a PSC Behind the Scenes visit plus give her or him my 3 favorite products!

I took the leap and left a deposit for my first month at a small 1 room office/shop...I am hoping to raise $1000 to help with my first 2 months of overhead, additional equipment and an assistant to help me process orders faster. Even if the goal is not reached...whatever can be collected will certainly help. No donation is too small and it will go to good use. I assure you. If you can not donate money but have items you would like to contribute, here is a list of need items.
