Subtl Beauty Lands Massive Investment Boost from CULT Capital!


Convenience-focused compact makeup brand Subtl Beauty announces close of series A funding round with substantial investment from CULT Capital

Rachel Reid, founder of Subtl Beauty (, a pioneer in compact, convenient makeup, has just closed a Series A funding round with a substantial investment from consumer investment firm, CULT Capital. CULT Capital’s $5mm investment is a strong vote of confidence in Subtl Beauty’s mission to redefine consumers’ beauty routines and challenge the industry’s status quo. The funding round comes on the heels of Subtl debuting its refreshed, award-winning stackable makeup packaging with cutting-edge bezel technology.

CULT Capital brings a wealth of experience building and scaling consumer brands, and has a proven track record in beauty with brands including Supergoop!, LAWLESS Beauty, and Act+Acre. With the recent close of their second fund, CULT Capital is dedicated to backing the rare and remarkable few brands that are poised to revolutionize the consumer industry. Known for its selective investment approach, CULT Capital evaluates hundreds of companies annually but only invests in a handful, demonstrating Subtl’s extraordinary allure and potential as a game-changer in the beauty industry. CULT Capital solely considers brands for investment with a minimum of 2 million in revenue, which Subtl substantially exceeded.

Subtl Stak Refills

“In a sector brimming with choices and complex beauty routines, Subtl stands out with its uniquely convenient and compact stackable beauty solutions,” said Sarah Woelfel, Partner at CULT Capital. “The remarkable scale of the brand, with over 300,000 Staks sold since launch, underscores its strong connection with today’s beauty enthusiasts. This success not only reflects Subtl’s deep understanding of consumer needs but also highlights a significant, unmet demand in the beauty sector.”

Subtl launched in 2018 and has been disrupting the cosmetics industry with revolutionary compact products that meet the evolving needs of beauty consumers. Inspired by her own experiences of the hustle of modern life and the desire to look put together effortlessly, founder Rachel Reid ingeniously designed a compact, stackable, and customizable solution to meet real makeup needs amid everyday life. Subtl’s products are packaged in a convenient, travel-friendly stackable format for on-the-go consumers, including vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, and fragrance-free formulas. Their new Stak 2.0 packaging recently won a BeautyMatter NEXT award and includes a refillable design with cutting-edge bezel technology. Alongside its fresh repackaging, Subtl reimagined its makeup formulas in response to consumer insights, ensuring clean beauty standards and introducing new skin-conditioning ingredients like Bayberry Fruit Wax and Vitamin E. The significant series A investment funding round comes as no surprise as the beauty brand has grown a notable cult following, and growth has exceeded 170% year over year.

“The partnership with CULT Capital marks a pivotal moment for us; it is a testimony not only to our product but also to our business trajectory,” said Reid, Founder, and CEO of Subtl Beauty. “CULT Capital’s network and experience scaling beauty brands is exactly what we need to take our business to the next level. ”

Reid chose to partner with CULT Capital due to the firm’s strong track record of success in the beauty category, having most recently sold a majority stake in Supergoop! to Blackstone Growth for a significant outcome. CULT Capital is excited to partner with Reid on key growth initiatives, including team development, marketing strategies, and securing broader retail distribution.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
