Guest Post: Rumble Cosmetics


Rumble Cosmetics: “We believe in the fun of RUMBLE cosmetics and in being the original brand of the female fan!”

The Stephs have always had a passion for doing things that help others feel pretty and share their love for entrepreneurship. In January of 2012, Rumble Cosmetics was born, when Stephanie Nash was celebrating a bowl game with friends. As a K-State alum, she proudly put on her purple smoky eye, glittery pencil, shiny gloss and her vision of merging color cosmetics and the collegiate market was born. A phone call to Stephanie Mason soon followed, and one morning at Starbucks later, Mason was in on the same dream.

The following months included endless hours of research, product development, fundraising and getting approved by the universities to use their marks and become official licensees. Sacrificing all their time, sleep and money, The Stephs were committed to seeing this through.

The two Rumble founders have products ranging from glitter lip gloss, nail polish and an eye shadow shade box with various eye colors and eye liner. Naturally, I am a BIG football and basketball fan, so I use their products often as we get ready to show our stuff off at the tailgate! These products are not only available on 9thandelm.com, but come in a variety of packages for your University, not to mention, they give you a tutorial on how to apply as a Naughty or Nice Fan, which naturally I need, because I’m not the best makeup applier. Find their makeup available for these schools (Don’t see your school? No worries they are expanding as you are reading this and always take tips from their fans on where to design next!): K-State, KU, Mizzou, Texas A & M, Baylor, Oklahoma State, TCU, Iowa Hawkeyes, Nebraska, Iowa State, Texas Tech, West Virginia, Alabama, South Carolina, Auburn and University of Georgia. Prices: $18-$48
