The Story Behind The Color

Hi there!


My name is Chrissy. I'm the thirty-something Mom to three crazy boys trying to make her way through homeschooling, navigating the complex world of Minecraft, cuddles and comic book characters.

I married my Coastie in 2007, which means Parlo has bounced around a LOT in it's short few years, with many, many more adventures in store! 

When I'm not creating something with sparkle or a delicious vegan skincare product, you can find me adventuring with these dudes. 

Parlo Cosmetics came about in 2012 when my need for a creative outlet was at it's peak. I needed something to help me drudge through all of this testosterone and let me have something for ME. What started with a desire to create a mineral foundation that didn't irritate my ultra sensitive skin, a few eyeshadows and lip colors has now blossomed into a full time gig. Parlo is sold in over 70 retail locations nationwide. 

I've been loving the ride ever since.
