Meet Tiffany from Performance Colors - A GIVEAWAY!!! - CLOSED

Remember yesterday's post on "my little secret"??
Meet Tiffany... she's the person behind one of my secrets.  She runs Performance Colors, an Etsy shop I stumbled upon while looking for the perfect taupe cream eyeshadow.  My goal was to find a pretty color that I could wear all over the lid, since it's effortless when getting ready in the morning.  I also wanted to support a fellow Etsy seller, so I searched for that right person "out there".  

Tiffany offers the most amazing colors in her collection.  She is also SO sweet!  I contacted her with a million questions (ok, maybe not a million, but quite a few...) and she was quick and prompt with her replies.  She is always so willing to answer any questions you might have about her shop or any of her products.  



Sweetdreams  - MY Favorite!

Recently I was able to preview her NEW LINE of cream concealers... 
and OH MY GOODNESS... amazing stuff!!!

So, here's a little more info on her...  

1. Tell us a little about yourself?
My name is Tiffany. I live in a small rural town in New Jersey with my wonderful husband. I grew up where there was a family business where we all pitched in every day. So having a small business feels very natural to me and makes me feel very productive and happy as a person. My grandmother was an oil painter and a gardener and she introduced me to those hobbies when I was a very little girl so those are big loves in my lives. My grandmother and mother taught me so many old world crafts like canning, sewing, knitting...even tatting (lace-making!). 

2. How did PerformanceColors start?
I had been dabbling in skincare and makeup for several years. My husband who has allergies had also gotten a bad skin condition as a side effect of diabetes so I got really curious about the ingredients in skincare products.

3. What is your inspiration for your shop's products and colors?
I am inspired for colors every day by living! Gardens, flowers, picture books, old paintings, kimonos, fabrics, saris, magazines.

4. What is your favorite item in your shop?
My favorite item in my shop is the one I create tomorrow. Lol. I say that because I have an obsession with creating better things that are affordable. I like having a problem to solve. It keeps me positive and my mind busy. That way if I am frustrated at my day job or any of those little daily things that can get one upset I just start thinking about how I would solve the challenge I have set for myself.

5. Do you have any hobbies?
I like gardening, oil painting, and cooking.

6. What are your goals for PerformanceColors?
I am a new shop. It took me a long time to have the courage to put my product up on Etsy even though me and my girlfriends had been wearing it every day for the better part of a year. Now I am releasing the creamy concealer and I have been working on this since January, over 8 months. I'd like a line of compacts for sammples and cream to powder foundations. I'd like my website more complete. I am working on a smudge-proof pencil. I haven't worn pencil in 3 years. Every time I do it is halfway down my face by noon. When I started the concealer project back in January I bought over $300 of competitor's products to test against. It feels great to finish that project. I just started the pencil project the day I finished the concealer. What a mess and a total failure. But I am not giving up!

  14. Ooooh - just got back from her shop - if I were daring, I'd go with plum fairies - but I'd probably be more comfortable in crushed or champagne!

  15. This is an awesome giveaway. I have given up on makeup after repeated eye irritation from multiple brands two and a half years ago but this makes me want to give it another try. They are all so pretty. I love the champagne.
