Brazen Cosmetics is a familiar name in the indie blogosphere. Part of their appeal to me is that Sandi, the owner, is so interactive with her customers on their Facebook page. I recently had the opportunity to sample two eyeshadows during a welcoming promotion offered to those that hadn't tried anything from Brazen yet, and I loved what I received! So much so, I went right to their Etsy shop and ordered a nifty package deal consisting of 5 random eyeshadows and 5 random lip gloss pots to start off my collection.
All the goodies! Now, on to the swatches:
I was so happy to receive a full-size of Karma, the lovely purple shade. Buzzed has got to be the most beautiful deep, rich brown that I own now too. Twisted is also another favorite of mine, it's so opaque and complex with its black base and aqua sparkles. The jars come with sealed sifters, which is a total win in my book.
Now, I'm not a lippy-swatchy kind of person. I've never been crazy about lip products either, so one would wonder why I'd want to try out some random glosses.
Shimmy appears to have been a gift with purchase which was totally sweet. I also received a sample of one of their scents called Island Indulgence on a fabric petal. It's pretty nice, and something I'd consider trying out because it didn't give me a splitting headache (most perfumes or scented things do, unfortunately).
I'm really looking forward to their official shop's grand opening! I also plan on doing a look with their products real soon to enter in their contest on Facebook for fun and whatnot. Y'know, assuming I don't totally botch it..
