Brazen Cosmetics Review

My package from Sandi of Brazen Cosmetics's arrived today! I have some more items on their way, but I wanted to do a more "in depth" review. I know there are a lot of people hesitant to order from Brazen; the previous cApS in the shop, and the fact that they're still a relatively new company. I became fairly good friends with Sandi over facebook, but I continue to purchase her products because I honestly believe they are excellent quality, very affordable, and her customer service is amazing. I have yet to find a shade/product I did'nt like. Also, every product is sealed and carefully packed, I have never had an item leak/spill during shipment. Sample sizes are available in just about any product you could imagine, and if not, she would be happy to create a custom listing for you!
I purchased full sizes in Perfect 10 blush as I had ran out of my sample, Paparazzi glitter gel, Twisted eyeshadow, my foundation, Strut/Jaded pressed shadow, and three perfumes.

Last night both Evil Shades and Sobe Botanicals released new collections. This weekend only, you can purchase the sample set (including ES new lippie) for 10.00 with free shipping! Full size set is 38.50.

Phyraa posted swatches here of Sobe's new duochrome blush line. As you can probably tell, I currently have an obsession with duochromes, so I picked up samples of the majority of the shades and a full size of Icing on The Cake. You can use the coupon SAVE20 for 20% off your order! I believe the coupon's good for the next week or so.

Are you going to pick up anything from either collection? :D

Planet Caravan

I haven't done a smokey eye for quite some time, so that was my goal for today. I'm REALLY loving Evil Shade's Gossamer blush... the duochrome finish is gorgeous. I wore it to school and got lots of compliments!

Evil Shades swatches & Review

I purchased some evil shades shadows during the Buy 2 get 1 free in December! I ordered on the 19th and my order shipped on the 29th, the TAT was 10 days at the time PLUS it was right before Christmas.
I ordered eyeshadows in Zombie, Coffin, Necropolis, a sample blush of Gossamer and received a free sample of deviant lipstick in Bane. Click the cut for more photos! :)

Berry French Toast

I made french toast on Sunday and took pictures because it looked so yummy!

If you do a google search, generally the recipes are all pretty similiar, but here's my basic recipe:
4 eggs (basically 1 egg per every two slices of bread)
half cup milk
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
8 slices of thick bread (texas toast or thick multigrain makes the best french toast!)
Butter for the pan
Maple Syrup, Icing Sugar and frozen berries for topping (berries are frozen here, which is why they look kinda funny)

Blend everything together in a large bowl, and dip the toast in one piece at a time. Dip one side, then do the other, (I find its easiest to dip them in with a fork) then fry it in a pan!

Morgana Cryptoria Haul

My first ever order from Morgana! There's been a ton of praise over the net for their vegan lipsticks, so when the Black Friday sale was announced, I was super excited to place a order. It did take quite some time for the orders to ship (i am just receiving my order today.) But there was a fair warning, and i'm guessing there were a crazy amount of orders she had to fill! As a one woman show, i'm still impressed. I also have to say that her customer service is excellent; I contacted her about my order not showing up on the site, and she was *extremely* quick to reply and fix the bug. I ordered 5 full sized eyeshadows as they were half price, and four lip products. I did not receive any samples.
