Well, it just keeps rolling on... and when you get publishing credit attached to artistry, you know your products must be of a caliber worthy of others to take that chance. When the owner and lead staff of "Gothic Vogue Magazine" informed us that their makeup artists were going to be using our products in the next issue, we hardly expected a cover credit. The extreme talent of Artist, Leroy Roper would make anyone proud to be associated, and that, WE ARE!. So click the link and visit them, its edgy, creative, beautiful and talented. But we only produce and the talent you see in the final outcome can only be credited to thier makeup artist Tiffany Diamond. You know, you work hard and produce right, and days like today stop you with a reality check that-the path you are on is worthy of those 15 hour days.

Often, we will stumble upon another business, working, donating, making a difference! These businesses truly remind us of "US" So here we stumble upon one that we hope more of you can get behind. We know that you can't always be shopping for cosmetics! So in this case, maybe its time to shop for coffee. Next time you venture through that grocery store and you know you needed more coffee, STOP!!! Think about a purchase here first! You wont be disappointed! Just think, every cup you pour then from now on--Well, you just helped another great cause! Visit them! Here's an article by one of the owners below!.
Meaghan was a young, healthy vibrant 28 year old attending law school in the winter of 2006. During her second year of classes she began feeling ill. She went to numerous doctors looking for help. Each doctor suggested it was all in Meaghan’s head; maybe she was depressed, mentally ill or over-stressed. Because she had always been healthy and was young the doctors assumed nothing serious could be wrong. Enduring extreme pain, bleeding and exhaustion Meaghan kept returning to her doctors looking for help. Still no one did anything to address any of her health issues. Meaghan’s symptoms became worse with each passing day. No one believed she was ill and so she continued to attend classes and tried to live a normal life. Eventually the pain became unbearable so she drove herself to the ER.
The doctors at the Emergency Room also suggested Meaghan’s pain was all in her head. However, they were required to give a CT scan due to the symptoms she complained of. The CT scan showed Meaghan’s pain was not in her head. She had a large tumor on her cervix. The tumor had grown so large it crushed her ureters causing her kidneys to rip open. In February 2007 Meaghan was finally diagnosed with advanced cervical cancer, stage 3b. The same doctors that had told her she was fine were now telling her and her family that Meaghan would not survive this.
Meaghan decided not to give up but rather to fight. After two weeks of hospitalization and blood transfusions Meaghan was flown to Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston Massachusetts. Upon arriving the doctors were both amazed and horrified. Amazed at this young woman’s spirit and horrified at the pain she was forced to endure. Teams of doctors attended Meaghan in an effort to diminish her pain and save her life. Meaghan underwent chemo, internal & external radiation as well as numerous surgeries. With only a 20% chance of surviving Meaghan and her doctors fought hard against cancer. In July 2007 she won her battle and was cancer free.
Although she won her fight Meaghan continues to struggle against the secondary effects of her treatments. Cancer has changed her life forever. Meaghan returned to law school and is set to graduate in December 2008.
Without the love, care and attention Meaghan received at Dana Farber Cancer Institute she would not have survived. Because of this Meaghan has dedicated herself to raising awareness and supporting Cancer Institutes. To learn more about Meaghan and her story visit her blog at www.cancerlost.blogspot.com
We at G.T.B understand Meaghan’s story is not unique. There are many men and women fighting battles against cancer. Get The Bean wants to do what we can to help fight cancer. We have decided to donate a portion of our proceeds to various cancer charities.

Well, Now we've done it! Either Spell Cosmetics has arrived on the scene or we have upset a balance within the cosmetics industry! Within the past couple of days we received an email from someone within one of the "major" players in the cosmetics industry. Upon first glance we suspected that we were being noticed, being recognized. Well, definitely not the case. Our "marketing" individual was only there to let us know that they were going to put us to the test regarding Spell and our line. I'm usually prone to the phrase that any news is good news but I'm not sure this time. Our excitement on that email--from the major name--certainly quickly tempered with despair. For obvious reasons, we can't say the name BUT what we can do is respond back--which we did--believe me!!.lol So since we link our blog in our emails, let them be sure to read this. Know that we will not be pushed around!. Know that our customer service will beat yours EVERY TIME- Because you have forgotten where you came from. Know that we will not be adding the same chemicals to our products as you do. Know that we are PROUD to provide quality, and to request input from our consumers, and finally, know that we will pass you up and not look back as your customers become ours!!! Its the nature of capitalism and we deserve the opportunity to prove ourselves as much as anyone else! So we will continue our contests/draawings, we will continue our FREE giveaways and we will continue to be humbled by each order--we ever receive--Simply, we will not forget where we came from and we will call upon our customers to point it out if we ever do!!!!
So to those that have shopped with Spell, you will receive our gratitude, service and hearts--we aren't afraid to put it out there. For those of you considering shopping with Spell, know that every order of yours is and will always be something personal. We've invested everything we have in Spell, and know that we will always be grateful to what we have accomplished and have YET to accomplish!
Thursday, October 9, 2008
So in an effort to continue that focus we have decided to take a chance and release a kit for those first time buyers. Whether you be a younger girl just entering the cosmetics world, a "seasoned veteran" seeking the look without the chemicals-This may be the kit for you. Individually we retail this for about $90.00 but we releasing it at $39.00 Readers want to know what they get! What you do not get are sample sizes, you do not get pre-assembled colors. You get to choose. A 3 shadows collection, foundation, Wet and Set, Liner, Blush, lipstick and lip gloss. PLUS a VIP Card. Everything you need to get started and get started healthy! We have committed to that and since we will be here--maybe its the only cosmetics company you'll have to shop with again. Of course the kit comes in a packaged box with what we call the "bow to show" support for the fight! So check it out in the store---Drop us a line with questions and as always--Thank you!!

So, lets see.... Sexy Sparkle or Natural Glow?? Hmm... Well, they are both on introductory sale at $8.99 and once again--NO Parabens, No Phthalates, no glitter and no talc!!!!
Wednesday, October 1, 2008
When Spell was created, there was an inherent struggle and to be frank -temptation- to take an easier production path with the cosmetics line. As many of you know, this has been an industry that Elle has been in for 18 years, her range of knowledge and familiarity with product is obviousely something I personally admire. From a corporate standpoint, we faced a decision to create product on an easy path or to take the necessary time and investment to produce product that would not only be beautiful, but be healthy.
Our research regarding Parabens and Phthalates led us to the decision to formulate with the latter, taking the time and effort to produce our line. Yes, it took much longer and the urge to launch early was difficult to abate. But, instead of taking the easier, less costly road, we chose to focus on longer term benefits to our buying public. Make no mistake, we used to use products ourselves, at home, that did contain the recently researched additives, we did not give the necessary thought to even self protection, until we entered the stream of providing OTHERS with something we created, there-in lay our concerns.
Today, we are proud of ourselves and of others who take an active role in doing their part to help--We are by no means in a celebrity position to make a huge impact yet--But with each new order, we do our part today-and will continue to do so.
So we ask that if you are someone that has moved on from Spell or for some reason weren't completely satisfied (and we know we cannot please everyone), then take a look at some of the others out there that support the similar causes. We would rather lose an order to someone who decides to make a donation to a special cause, then focus on pure profit. We are by no means "heroes", or seeking a fame, we are simply owners of our own company that as we grow can help make a tiny difference.
