New Advertiser :: Manic Panic

Please welcome our newest advertiser, Manic Panic!

I have a feeling everyone here has dyed their hair with Manic Panic at least once in their lives (I left an old apartment with a permanently stained Vampire Red bathtub), so we are very excited to welcome Manic Panic to Haute Macabre!

Founded on 7.7.77 by sisters Tish & Snooky, the original Manic Panic started off as a punk boutique on NYC’s Saint Mark’s Place. Becoming an icon of the first generation of punk, color was infused into the 1980’s with rainbow shades of hair dyes and cosmetics. To this day, Manic Panic remains 100% vegan and cruelty free products!

Find them on Facebook and follow their boards on Pinterest!

To celebrate Manic Panic’s new advertising run on Haute Macabre, we’re giving away one prize pack full of items from The Creature of the Night cosmetic collection, valued at $100! To enter to win, just leave a comment below!

 A winner will be selected at random on Wednesday, May 23!

**Due to postal restrictions, winner must be in the United States. Items pictured above may not be the same as items in prize pack.

    I currently have about 7 open containers of manic panic in my bathroom right now, ha ha.

    I like how soft it makes my hair after applying, especially when I’ve bleached too much. Almost like a conditioner. I also have la-riche but I feel like it doesn’t do as much in that area.

  2. Cynthia Says:

    I love Manic Panic hairdyes! They always leave such a nice, vibrant color. Knowing that they have lovely hairdyes, I would love to try their cosmetics. I’ve been looking for a good black lipstick for a while now. :P

  3. Jelly Says:

    Oh wow!! I didn’t realize they were vegan!! So cool! Now I gotta start making my christmas list for make up supplies from this company and hand it to my family :) and now I just have to pick out the perfect hair dye.
    This is gonna be harder than I thought!!! X3

  4. Rachael Says:

    Oh man, this brings back the memories.

  5. RockLove Says:

    Ahhh Manic Panic – my very first foray into hair dye. As a little obnoxious goth (and the only Jewish kid in my rich conservative republican Midwest school) I dabbled with the hair dye pretty young. It was the only rebellion I could think of, since the Piercing Pagoda at the mall would only do ears with your parent present.

    The rule was “nothing permanent and do it before mom get’s home.”
    (because clearly once it was in, she just had to accept the blue/hot pink/green/red)

    And this was so much better than dying it in fifth grade with Kool-Aid. You guys remember that fad? Blue bangs, blue fingers for a week.

    Thank you Manic Panic! To this day I’ve never left my high-school-burgundy “phase!”

  6. Jon Fulton Adams Says:

    My God…

    Manic Panic and Haute Macabre – that’s a marriage made in…

    I love to see Manic Panic coming back strong – they got me through my “Blue Period”.

    Good to see you again, old friend!

  7. Iris Says:

    I love Manic Panic, especially the Amplified colors. I have been dying my hair with Manic Panic for about 8 years now, literally the whole rainbow at one point or another. It’s funny, with blue hair (my current color of choice, been that way a few years) strangers come up to me almost every day and ask how to get their hair blue like me, people I would never expect to dye their hair let alone dye it blue, and I always suggest Manic Panic Amplified After Midnight Blue. I have never used the cosmetics before, and winning this would be the perfect opportunity for me to try them, and become a walking advertisement for whatever I get, as well.

  8. Jey Says:

    Manic Panic made the turquoise ends of my hair possible before I chopped most of it off. Hooray for vegan war paint!

  9. Rachel Says:

  90. Atomic Sean Says:

    Manic Panic made my teenage dreams come true!

  91. Hopeless Romantic Says:

    I’ve been using Manic Panic hair dye for what… over 15 years now? I’ve never gotten to try any of their make up. It looks lovely.

  92. Leigh Says:

    What a perfect partnership. I’ve been a Manic Panic customer since 1994!

  93. susana Says:

    Manic Panic was involved with my first experiment with hair dyes and makeup! those years of discovery where you want bright red hair and lips to go with it.. confidence boosters are definitely manic panic products. i still use the products.. i bold hair color.. or vibrant lip color go a long way in making you feel sexy and fun. i’m definitely excited about these new gorgeous color palettes.

  94. tona Says:

    ah! to the greatness that is manic panic!

  95. Nyssa Says:

    manic panic will always have a special place in my heart, love the packaging!

    Hay, love Manic Panic !

  99. LaLaLogic Says:

    My bathtub is permanently Enchanted Forest, and I would love this.

  100. Brit Says:

    I hear you on the permanent Vampire Red stain, more than one bathtub (and towel/sink/countertop) has suffered from my somewhat splattery application techniques. I’ve also loved their Raven lipstick and Virgin Pressed Powder for many years. It’s so great to see Manic Panic on Haute Macabre!

  101. Meghan Says:

    Love manic panic!

  102. Lunaria Says:

    Oooh, would love to try another go around with my old manic panic friends.

  111. Carla Says:

    Although I love make up, I normally don’t get excited about collections, but this one in particular completely caught my attention, I love Manic Panic

  112. NyxAlexandra Says:

    Manic Panic powders and pure white foundation are staples.
    I’ve been mixing their white foundation with the lightest flesh tone foundation I can find, so that it will match my naturally pale complexion, for years now.
    Winning this would be killer ;]

  117. Jay Says:

    I love Manic Panic

    I find it lovely that you can dye your hair so many lively colors without it burning your scalp of with any harsh chemicals!
