We say goodbye to Bridge Street!

Hello Ladies!

As you can probably guess we have some bad news for you...our Bridge Street boutique is closing on May 25th.  We just wanted to take this opportunity to let all those of you who have come to know and love CosmeticsInc. what's going on.

Due to constant hardships since we opened with road works, and other shop closures, Bridge Street has become far too difficult an environment for our little shop to survive, and while those who use our products and take advantage of our advise love to do so, there are simply not enough people around to keep us afloat in these difficult times.  We hate nothing more than to let you down and for those who are used to using our products and will miss them we can only apologise...and trust us, we don't want this any more than you do!

From now until the 25th we will be running a sale in the boutique so you can stock up on all your favourites at 60% off...and even after the boutique is closed our website will still be active so you can reorder your products.

We would just like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our lovely customers for making this past year a wonderful time, and for embracing and loving everything we have done to try and add a little glamour and sparkle to our city.  As sad as we are that the boutique is closing we will always remember our time on Bridge Street as an amazing adventure where we had the chance to meet so many lovely people and do some really wonderful things.

Hopefully we will see you in the next couple of weeks for some bargains, and do keep an eye out for us in the future...you never know where we might pop up next!

Lots of Love

Gary and David

Halloween Fun @ CosmeticsINC!


We hope you all had lots of fun over Halloween and more importantly showed of your makeup skills!  We had a blast and thought we'd share a couple of the spooky looks we put together!

For Peterborough locals its an institution...for people reading from outside our little city its madness but we once again had the Zombie walk grace our streets and we were so pleased to have one of Peterborough's most beautiful corpses in the boutique getting ready for the event!  David did an amazing job of putting the 'gore' in GORGEOUS with CosmeticsINC makeup....creating a look to die for! Check out the videos from the walk itself and see if you can spot our model!


My lovely sister stopped by, and despite being 6 months pregnant, was still set on being a glamorous witch!  I went for a flawless and eerily pale base of foundation stick, some suitably over the top smokey eyes in blacks and purples and a blood red lip with a hint of black just to shade and add the haunting edge...once the black wig and pointy hat was on she was looking amazing!

My favorite makeover was of course the one i did on myself!  Anyone who popped into the boutique on the 31st was in for a scare in the form of the post-mortem makeup artist! lots of pale foundation, lots of shading and contouring...all finished with a scary upturned lip and some red in the eyes and I was good to go!

Let me know what you think...if you want to share your halloween makeup creations why not tweet a photo @gs_cosmeticsinc

lots of love

Trend Alert! The Cobalt Craze!

Hi all!

With autumn well underway its time to check in on whats happening in the world of fashion and makeup for the new season! The catwalks are showing lots of berry toned lips in strong matte textures for a really full graphic finish...easy to wear and with such a general colour group there is literally an on-trend colour to suit anyone...pop over to Cosmeticsinc.webplus.net and check out our microbubble lipsticks, for a full hit of colour guaranteed to brighten any complexion!

A trend I'm much more excited about is blue...lots of blue! From royal and sapphire to sexy midnight...high voltage blue is the colour to watch this season! I've rounded up a few new and existing products you can try to follow this new trend!

For a full and dramatic eye have a look at our amazing 'Hipster' pallette...shades of blue to highlight, sculpt and accent your eyes for a show stopping finish!

Signature Shadow Quad - 'Hipster'

To finish your dramatic eye look try out Luxe Creme Liner in Midnight...A deep blue liner with just a hint of shimmer for a flawless result....Finish with lashings of UltimateLash mascara in black and a slick of nude pink on the lips for a look sure to get you noticed!
UltimateLash Mascara - 'Black'
Luxe Creme Liner - 'Midnight'

For a softer look why not experiment with a coloured mascara to keep you on trend without overdoing the colour, our super soft Sensitive eyes mascara in Navy will give natural length, volume and curl to any lash while the deep navy colour makes your eyes look brighter!

Finish with a soft liner like Automatic Longlasting Eyeliner in Indigo...Softer than a full black liner and compliments the mascara perfectly!

Sensitive Mascara - 'Navy'
Automatic Longlasting Eyeliner - 'Indigo'
Going nude on the eyes means you can get away with a little more colour on the lips...we don't suggest blue lipstick, but we have the next best thing in 'Blue Roses'...a beautiful shocking pink with blue undertones that will whiten your smile and guarantee you're center of attention!

Blue Roses - Available November 2012

Enjoy trying out some blue looks for autumn and remember...we're always here to help, and we'd love to see some of your creations on our facebook wall!

See you all soon!

Lots of love

You asked for it...We got it!!!!

Hi all!

At CosmeticsInc. if there's one thing we love its all our lovely ladies...and we know we have to keep them all happy, so we've launched some new products based purely on advise from our amazing customers!  We don't know why some companies make it so difficult...but if you want something, we'll do our best to sort it out for you! So here are a list of your requests and the products we have created to solve the problems!

..."I love your Peptide wrinkle relaxing skincare but I spend a lot of time outdoors, it's a pain having to use a separate SPF."

Welcome to the best selling Peptide range our Peptide Protection SPF30.  All the anti-aging, all the hydration, now with a broad spectrum SPF 30 to give you maximum protection whether you work outside or you just like to enjoy the great outdoors!

..."I want to set my makeup but like a fresh, dewy look for my skin...I wish i didn't have to use powder!"

Oh...haven't you heard...now you don't have to! Our Perfect Finish Setting Spray does exactly what it says on the bottle and more!  As well as giving you a perfect glow and setting your makeup for all day wear, it also hydrates, and has lots of vitamins and minerals that will keep your skin looking amazing, even after you remove your makeup...and all without the matte finish of a setting powder, problem solved!

..."A few of my friends use you AMAZING foundation stick but I'm super pale and I think soft cream is too dark for me."

Well we love a girl that 'pale and interesting', so this one was an easy one! We have extending the colour range in our fly-away success 'Foundation Stick' to include porcelain...perfectly fair with just a hint of rose so even the lightest of skins can now find their perfect match! We are also increasing the protection in our foundation stick from SPF8 to SPF15!

..."I love my CosmeticInc. mascara for length/volume/curl...but i want one that does it all...and does it fast!"

Well that's a reasonable request...pop in and meet our new Ultimate Lash Mascara...a beautiful fibre rich formula that will give you so much lash you'll want to apply it again and again...luckily its a special formula that made for layering so apply away!

..."OMG! Your shop is so sparkly and covered in glitter...I want to be sparkly and covered in glitter!"

Okay, so i may have made that one up, but with party season just around the corner you'll be in need of some glamour before you know it! We have created Glamour Glow...A super shimmery golden powder that you can use on the face, across the chest and shoulders, or even in the hair! The real genius is the packaging...as a makeup artist I know that once you use a brush for glitter, it'll be glittery for life, so we've put Glamour Glow in a special Brush applicator so there's no need to use a separate brush to apply! You glow girl!

See you all soon!

Lots of love

Rock Chick tips and tricks!


If there's one thing I love its a rock chick...strong, defiant and sexy...everything a woman should be!

I've created a beautiful rock chick look that is still super feminine and soft so you can show off your wild side while still being a lady!

The beautiful Mel look fresh and fabulous!

So there's the look, I've gone for a classic smokey eye, with a beautiful base of shimmering pink, the crease is contoured with smokey metallic grey and brightened under the brow with a shimmery white.

Rock Chick ready...(left to right)...Pearl, Charm and Titanium give all
the drama...finish with Black liner and lashings of VolumeX Mascara!

The face is perfected with a powder foundation for a super quick application and a flawless finish, and the cheeks are given a soft glow with a multi-tonal shimmering pink blush!

Flawless on the go...try a powder foundation like our Dual Active Powder to get a photo-flawless
look in seconds, no mess, no fuss...just finish with a fresh cheek colour then steal the show!

The lips are given a soft and girly freshness with a candy pink lipstick and a light shimmering gloss to keep the  look fun!

Rock or not - you HAVE to love pink! Keep the 'chick' in rock chick with a pretty pink lip...Microbubble lipstick  in
Tickled Pink and Liquid Lustre in Pink kisses keep it girly while you rock out!

Have fun trying a rock chick look for yourselves...have a try and post your best look on our facebook timeline!

See you soon!
