We are working on ensuring that 90% of our packaging is recyclable by 2025. Much of our packaging is already paper based so it's biodegradable. Our product packaging is also designed to be collectible in nature and therefore kept & displayed instead of thrown away after use.

Where do you get the artwork for your products?

All of our product artwork is either Officially Licensed through the original IP owners, commissioned, public domain or original artwork. We believe artists always deserve to get paid top dollar for the work they do and we do not use AI. We also strive to partner with companies that share our values when it comes to ai. See HASBRO's & D&D's statement here. Batty Goth is our lead designer, see more of her work here.

What does "Officially Licensed Product" Mean?

When we want to use a licensed character or property, we pay a fee to the licensor - which can be pretty steep. And it's not just a one-time payment; we also give up a percentage of our profits, usually around 10%. On top of that, we cover all production, marketing, and shipping costs ourselves. And before we can start, we need the licensing company's approval. That means we're investing a lot of time and money into the product, with no guarantee of success. Every step of the process and every portion of information we put out requires a separate approval. This is why it takes time to update product images and swatches, make announcements etc. This is all worth it because we get to create unique products made by and for the fandoms we love!

We're not just passionate about what we do - we're also bringing unique products to the table that you won't find anywhere else. By supporting us, you're supporting creativity and innovation. Next time you see a licensed product, remember that we're taking a big risk to bring it to you. Let's support small businesses and keep the creativity flowing!

Who runs this site/company?

Who is behind the scenes here? The short answer is, a lot of people. We can't create cool makeup for the fans like we do without a lot of help. We are a family run business and support other family oriented women owned, queer & neurodivergent entrepreneurs whenever possible.

What is Phoenix Rising Cosmetics?

TLDR: Vampyre Cosmetics is transitioning towards a broader audience.

Are some of your product pictures mockups?

As a small indie company, we're eager to share full product images, but our partners need to approve each production phase. Teaser images allow us to incorporate your feedback for enhancements, making you a part of the creative process! We update our website and marketing as soon as partners approve final images. Think of it like a movie trailer - we're offering a sneak peek while the final product is being fine-tuned. Your patience will be rewarded with amazing products! In the meantime we recommend checking out our website to see what our physical products look like from our other lines!
