After hearing about Brazen Cosmetics from the lovely Grey, I ended up purchasing from them. I picked up the Original Candy Hearts sample set as well as the Screw Cupid sample set. I also snagged the Mango Mango lip scrub. I received some additional samples, as well. (Don’t forget about the Screw Cupid Giveaway I have going on right now, or the 20% Off coupon code: Phyrra, coupon code is only good on Valentine’s Day items)


Ordering from Brazen is easy, as it is with ordering from most places on Etsy. I believe all of the eye shadows are vegan, which is cool.

The colors are all nice, smooth and pigmented. I especially fell head over heels for Tease. That color is just so HOT!

Tease on the inner 2/3 of lid and crease, Miss Independent on the outer 1/3 of lid and crease, Vixen to define the crease and Last Call smudged along lash line.

All of the shadows are really nice. I’ve been happy with all of them so far.
Mythic on center of lid.

The lipgloss was thick and really pigmented. I was impressed because I was expecting it to be sheer, so I was happy when it was not!

There are all kinds of deals on collections.

Lip Scrub:
Mango Mango is amazing if you love mango, which I do.
$2.49 for .5 oz, vegan.

The ingredients are:
Rich golden jojoba oil, creamy mango butter, almond oil, coconut oil and vitamin E for antioxidants and super sweet mango flavor create a gotta-have lip scrub that will love your lips.

I completely agree with the listing that says it’s a ‘gotta-have’ lip scrub. I love mangos. I had them for probably the first time when I was sick after my surgery in August, and found them to be divine. I now hunt them out, both in scented products, food and scrubs. It’s such a mouthwatering, awesome flavor to me!

There’s a note that mentions that there is almond oil in the product, in case of allergies.

Shipping:
Starts at $2.15 and goes up to $5, depending on the item and collection.
After shipping so much stuff myself, even buying bubblewrap envelopes in bulk, it costs me at least $2.50 to pay for shipping most places, so I find that shipping cost quite reasonable.

Would I purchase from Brazen Cosmetics again?
Yes! I am in love with the Mango Mango lip scrub. Seriously. I just wanna eat it up. And uhm, I might have eaten a tiny bit. Just a bit!  The eye shadows are lovely, and I like the lippy that I tried. I will definitely be purchasing the lip scrub again if it’s available in Mango. YUM! If you only check out two things, I would highly recommend the lip scrub and Tease eye shadow. They were my favorites.

Some products purchased by me, others sent for consideration. All opinions are my own.
