Who Is Copacetic Cosmetics?
How It Began
The seeds that eventually became Copacetic Cosmetics were planted in 2013 when my (Olivia) love of polish reached its peek and I found the world of Indie Polish (previously known as franken polish).
I started Cascade Polish while I was a stay at home mom and my husband Chris was working a 12hr shift at a factory. Cascade Polish was more of a hobby than a business and I met so many wonderful people through it.
However once starting my own company I found myself only using my polishes and attaching my worth to the condition of my nails. I would spend hours making sure they were cared for and decorated, and when I would break a nail it would negatively effect my mental health to an unhealthy extreme.
In 2014 (after the birth of my daughter) I chose to focus more on my mental health and family and closed the company down.
In the time span of 2014 - 2016 I fell in love again, but this time with cosmetics.
I was always buying the newest releases of all the popular "impulse" brands. This hobby turned toxic around 2015 when I was spending rent & utility money on makeup. It became a coping mechanism for my depression and loneliness. Chris was still working long hours at a factory and I needed something healthy to focus energy and time on.
In early 2016 I motioned starting the nail polish company again, and Chris encouraged me to dream bigger. He suggested that I open a full cosmetics line including polish, and I started working on a July 1st 2017 launch date.
With the collection of cosmetics I had built up as my base of comparison I started researching and experimenting with my own formulas. I started dreaming of an affordable makeup line that provides beautiful items with little to no impulse pressure. I never wanted to enable someone else to spend their rent / utility money on our products, which is why we do not have many LE items or discontinuations.
Who Are We?
- Copacetic Cosmetics is ran by a very small team.
- From 2017 - 2020 Copacetic Cosmetics was a one woman show
- In 2020 Chris was able to quit his factory job and Copacetic Cosmetics became our sole income. For a family of 5 this was not a lot to live off of, but we were all able to be home with each other and that meant so much more to us than anything else.
- In 2021 My mother and Aunt joined the team as well. We were able to open a small store front in our little town with a population of less than 1,300 people.
- Today in 2022 our team still consists of myself, my husband, my mother, my aunt, and the help of a part time local senior.
What We Stand For
Our largest goal here at Copacetic Cosmetics is to provide beautiful, affordable, and safe products for everyone.
- Beautiful & Unique: Something I refuse to do is to follow trends just for the sake of it. I really love making products that inspire and excite me. My #1 favorite part of my job is getting to mix and create beautiful products on a whim. At any given time I have at least 30 unreleased prototypes just because I love the creation aspect so much.
- Affordability: We are probably best known for our $2 Tuesday sales. We launch these new shades at a 60% off discounted price so that everyone can participate in new launches without remorse. I always think back to when I would spend our rent/utility money on new releases in order to not feel like I'm missing out. So having these "backward" sales is very important to me.
- Safe & Ethical: In 2016 when I started researching cosmetics I quickly understood that I needed to ALWAYS make sure my products were safe. This is one reason I refuse to private label. Not that I have anything against it personally, I just always want to be in the room where products are made so that I know fully what is in them and the conditions in which they are made. When working with any new supplier for ingredients or packaging I always ask questions and request documents to insure the ingredients are sourced properly and to verify an ethical supply chain. We have recently started using synthetic pigments which are an alternative to mica. I know that I can fully trust my customers and peers to keep me updated and in check on the ever changing beauty industry.

Fixing Damaged Makeup
How do I fix damaged matte eye shadows?
Our matte eyeshadows are not poured using alcohol, and are instead dry pressed.
The best way to attempt to fix a damaged matte eyeshadow is to lay a piece of cloth over the eyeshadow tin and then use a quarter to press it into the tin. Using a hard object such as a hammer, book, paper weight, etc to tap on the quarter with pressure to rebind the eyeshadow into a solid piece.
How do I fix a damaged highlighter
Our highlighters are wet poured which means they can be easily fixed by rewetting with 91% Isopropyl alcohol, mixing till all chunks are broken down, and then allowing it to dry. After 12 hours it should be fully dried and ready to be pressed down with a fabric cloth.
