Storybook Cosmetics is coming out with a black rose-inspired brush set to match your gothic soul

This October, goth babes will have something to swoon over with the release of Storybook Cosmetics’ black rose brush set.

It’s July and Halloween is just 3 months away! But for the goths among us, it’s every day. Storybook Cosmetics is your source for fairytale-inspired makeup and tools fit for princesses, witches, and other mythical characters. Now, they’re cooking up something in the cauldron for our fave holiday.

The brand, run by three triplet sisters (how’s that for legendary?) is known for their brushes inspired by wizard wands and gorgeous roses. The four brushes in the What’s in a Name set look like roses with green shiny handles that look like stems, and red bristles that resemble the petals of a rose. They sold out super fast, and are awaiting a restock, but something…darker…this way comes.

If you’re more Maleficent than Belle, you’ll surely dig the all-black reboot of the rose brushes. The original set retailed for $55, so we’re guessing the black brushes will be priced in a similar range.

The majority of commenters vote matte. We say why not both?

Kiss from a rose…

Except not because there isn’t a lip brush included. (As far as we know.)

The originals look like your typical rose.

The non-goth roses will be back later this month.
