Private Label Cosmetics?

Recently there has been a lot of controversy with repackaged cosmetics (cosmetic companies taking straight mica from a wholesaler and then packaging them under their own brand). Something related to that is private labeling where a cosmetic brand has a deal with a private label cosmetics manufacturer (a company that creates basic cosmetics products) wherein the PLM makes the product and then adds the label to it.

I wasn't too aware of this until I started buying things online and discovered companies like Ladyburd and Diamond Cosmetics

Any of those products look familiar? The Indelible Creme Eyeshadow or Indelible Gel Eyeliner? Do those polishes look familiar?

Now I don't have a problem with companies that sell them as a startup to their company before branching out onto more unique cosmetics.

What I do have a problem with are companies that sell them but then market them as "organic" and then crazily jack up the price *coughPriticough* *coughKarmaOrganicscough*

What does organic even mean in those cases? If they mean chemical free I guess it counts because they're Big 3 free but it's nail polish, it's not all that natural to begin with.
