Today’s Illuminate is about Morgana Cryptoria. Melissa makes vegan lipsticks and glosses, eye shadows, foundations, and she carries other products too, such as Jerome Russel Punky Color, my favorite hair dye. She also has a lipstick club called the Coven that gives you discounts on lipstick purchases, if you’re planning on purchasing a lot.
Vegan Lipsticks are a holy grail item for me. My favorites are Shrieking Orange & Azalea Blue.
There’s a pastel lipstick collection for those of you wanting kawaii.
The foundations are here, and they even include blue and lavender.
The eye shadows are here and you can see my swatches of many here.
You can read my Indie Spotlight here.
Her products are fantastic and handcrafted, and if you are looking for pigmented lipsticks, this is definitely the place!

I buy all my PC colors from Morgana. I’ve got an order in my cart for some items (including lipstick), but I may need to add some items to it!
Awesome post! I know I said this on the last one, too, but thanks so much for doing this series. It’s so helpful!
Never tried Punky Color, but now that I know she sells it, I might have to include a few bottles in my next lipstick order!
I actually just placed my first-ever order with her and was really pleased with the lipstick samples I got. Wisteria is that perfect lavender lipstick I’ve been searching for for years, and Otherworldly is just stunning. They also layer really nicely.
White foundation! I will definitely pick some up when I run out of my manic panic!
If more people in my area were interested in brightly colored lipstick, I would totally put together a group buyination of samples. Somehow, still after all the effusive reviews, it still seems almost too good to be real
The coven is potentially quite dangerous, because now I’ll buy lots more lipstick!
I need a white foundation as well, maybe finally i place an order at morgana’s.
I like everything I’ve tried from her so far – shipping was prompt too. Other than my OCC Lip Tars, about the only lipstick I’d buy now would be hers, I was pleased with the texture and packaging.
So far I’ve tried a couple of her lipsticks, eyeshadows and Ethereal Veil – the latter is quite nice for a finishing powder that also downplays red tones. Texture is pleasant, and it’s not too shimmery – just enough.
I am planning to order at least Azalea Blue and a couple others – I like the look of Love Lies Bleeding!
Can’t wait to get my first order. I keep hearing great things from everyone!
