Not my cup of tea.

Designer (Former Employee)
Oakland, CA

ProsThere's lots of potential as a designer for this company. I was told upscale and Saks 5th Ave. Sky's the limit creatively.

ConsBut when it came down to it, the creative director/owner wanted tiny flowers everywhere, brush script writing, and cartoon mermaids. We had a verbal agreement for payment for the initial contract, after working three days and knowing it was no my cup of tea, I sent a professional email stating my resignation. However, I was never paid for my three days, but I did leave all my working files in their system for the next designer to work from.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay employees, contractors, even if they worked for you for a few days. It's the professional thing to do.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great products, but looney ownership

    I worked at Purity Cosmetics full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Really good vegan products -- that's the main pro but… Cons: Craziest management I've ever experienced.
