CosmoProf Sneak Peek: No Miss LTD

In 2010, I discovered the brand No Miss. While I love that No Miss is vegan and very active about healthy alternatives to makeup and nail polish, I also really love the naming system for their polishes – each one is a color that includes a Florida location in the name. Like Tamarac Tangerine and Orlando Orchard. It has sentimental value to me, as I’ve been many places in Florida, and have lived in Tamarac near Ft. Lauderdale.

You can imagine I was excited at the opportunity to talk to the people behind the brand when I was at CosmoProf, and learn more about their cosmetics and the brand itself!

Milana, who is the voice of No Miss on Twitter, took me through the various product lines and told me a little bit about the company. If you don’t follow No Miss on Twitter, I would recommend clicking the link and checking them out. They retweet interesting tips about a healthy lifestyle with cosmetics and other products, and are very social and friendly.

No Miss technically started 45 years ago as a private-label company in New York. In 1990, the small, family-owned company launched the No Miss line, and now it boasts more than 170 polish colors sold in Whole Foods, Vitamin Cottage, the No Miss website (link above) and a site called Green Scene America.

The line is more than just polish though! One of the brands signature products is a nail treatment called Ba-Boo Clear Nail Hardener:

I am hoping to order and try this soon and let you know how it is!

There’s also cosmetics, like eye shadows:

(Review to come!)

Eyeliners and mascaras:

(Eyeliner review to come later this week!)

And lip gloss:

I am eager to branch out and try these other products, and I have especially high hopes for the eyeliner I have, which is a peachy color. Can’t wait to share with you!

Milana was kind enough to send me off with a bottle of polish I immediately fawned over as we discussed the line. It’s called Party Harty. It was one I wore as soon as I got home from Vegas. Check out the bottle shot:

Swatches:

Party Harty is an interesting combination of green, blue and golden glitter bits (they look like someone cut bar glitters in half) suspended in an opaque black creme base. What a gorgeous color. No Miss has a great range of glitters with many unique offerings from anything that’s been new coming out lately – if you click the Tamarac Tangerine link above you’ll see another one called Fiesta.

This was a bit gritty but still glossy with top coat and not gritty in a regular glitter way, because of the different shape of these glitter pieces.

I really enjoyed meeting Milana, and learning more about No Miss. What about you – have you ever tried No Miss? Heard of it? What would you try – makeup or nail polish or both?! Share you thoughts in the comments!!

    That’s a cool looking polish. Never heard of this brand. Interested in seeing more products from them.
