Around a month back, I was lucky enough to win a St. Patrick's Day-themed giveaway over at Le Gothique and sponsored by Brazen Cosmetics. I was able to pick up the package at the Q.C. Central Post Office, and it was a very calm experience compared to the horror stories I've been hearing about customs taxes and all. Then again, I only received a small bubble mailer, so I ended up paying only 40php. I was so excited that I opened the package in the car, took photos as soon as I got home, and tried a look while watching the royal wedding! (Did you watch? I love Kate's dress!)
Next up, have you ever heard of glitter glue for the body? Nope? Meet Shilelagh.
I also received two of Brazen's mineral eyeshadows: Shenanigans and Blarney.
Edit: I emailed Sandi, the owner of Brazen to ask about the eyeshadows. I'm happy to report that they are vegan too! Also I found that there are only 5 pots of Blarney existing in the world (!). I am holding an incredibly rare and beautiful piece in my stash. I also did a little research on the word blarney and it actually now means "clever and flattering talk". Well I have to agree, this is a clever eyeshadow because while it didn't look like much in the pot, it glittered something special in pictures and is rather flattering!
I'm very much happy with the stuff I received, thank you Grey & Sandi! This will encourage me to move out of my comfort zone of neutral eyeshadows. :) I am sad to report that Lots O' Luck, Shilelagh and Blarney are limited edition and no longer available, but there are still stocks of Shenanigans because it's now part of Brazen's permanent line ($5.49). Yay! I leave you now with an eye look using Shenanigans (crease) and Blarney (lid), plus primer, a highlight shade from a neutral palette, and Maybelline gel liner.
