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.
Tease – hot bubblegum pink with red/violet duochrome
Miss Independent – vibrant cool reddish burgundy with major sparkles
Vixen – almost-black red duochrome with red metallic shift
Last Call – flat rich black with a hint of burgundy and purple sparkle
Be Mine – soft pearl pink with blue sparkle
Cutie Pie – sweet soft green pearl with gold sparkle
Forever – soft tangerine orange pearl with purple sparkles
True Love – baby blue pearl with green sparkles
Mythic – bright almost-metallic yellow with green shift and plenty of green sparkle
Idol – sparkling shimmering rich gold
Incognito – gorgeous rich plum purple with purple sparkles
Tremor – strong bold royal purple with a satin finish and purple sparkles
Headstrong – rich smokey eggplant purple with a hint of shimmer
Cirque – brilliant blue-green with a satin finish and a teeny hint of gold.
Music Box – medium blue with a hint of teal and mega gold sparkles
Defiant – rich coffee brown with complex green shift and stand out gold sparkle
Mayhem- grey with purple and pink, taupe
Perfect 10 – the best blend of peachy pink with subtly gold shimmer
Shimmy (lip pot) – a merlot wine shimmer stain. V
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.
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!

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.
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.
