Hello! I'm Rachel

 C.E.O. & Founder of Vampyre Cosmetics LLC & PHOENIX RISING COSMETICS. Vampyre Cosmetics is sold at www.vampyrecosmetics.com, www.HotTopic.com & in over 150 independent stores around the world

 

We are proudly women owned (WBENC Certified), disabled owned and LGBT+ owned.  Our products are vegan, cruelty free (Leaping Bunny Certified) and talc free. They are also highly pigmented & super long lasting as they were specifically formulated for stage and screen.

 

We have licensed collections with Emily the Strange, Vincent Price, Winchester Mystery House, Amy Brown Fairies, Bill & Ted, Living Dead Dolls, Oregon Trail, Space Invaders & SILENT HILL by Konami! Our Officially Licensed collections featuring Dungeons and Dragons, Assassin's Creed, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Strawberry Shortcake & More are coming in 2024!

 

We have a team that handles our retail support and training with over 23 years of experience on both the buyer and brand side. We are also working with Condé Nast to promote our Dungeons & Dragons launch across Teen Vogue’s Social Media channels. We have robust manufacturing and shipping capabilities & strategic partnerships via licensing that allow us to compete with much larger brands. 

 

Our products have been featured on Medium, THEM (a Conde Nast Publication), LGBTQ Nation, Newsweek, Loudwire, Blabbermouth, Rely on Horror, Bloody Disgusting, Fangoria, IHeartRadio, Billboard, The PRIDE (Los Angeles LGBTQ Newspaper) & more!

 

We strive to be a “beauty disruptor”, renouncing social constructs of beauty and replacing them with individual ones. We don't Sell "Beauty", we believe beauty is in everyone. We merely provide tools for the expression of it. We believe no one should have to choose between unique, inspired packaging and high quality, ethical cosmetics, so we are committed to being all in one. 

 

We’ve recently received a lot of media attention for our decision to cancel our Licensed Collection with Alice Cooper over his anti-trans comments in the press. We very much believe in walking the walk not just talking to talk when it comes to making ethical business decisions and being transparent with our customer base.
