Dear Comfort Zone,
Just because you're cheap doesn't mean that you're not nice. You've got some great quality and I think you're pretty. We should spend more time together. I hear you work well with Tease, so we should get along.
I used both lid colors and the browbone shade on the left for this look.
Comfort Zone palette- Wet N Wild
Tease- Brazen Cosmetics
Physicians Formula Organic Wear Jumbo Lash Mascara

I'm thinking of calling the Physicians Formula Organic Wear Jumbo Lash Mascara "The Giant Shiny Leaf Mascara" from now on, because I always forget what it's called.
Sorry for being MIA this past week, but I was insanely busy with this part of my life...
Yep, that's me oboe-ing it up. This photo is actually from a concerto I played a few years ago.
This past week was exhilarating, and one particular solo performance was my best ever by leaps and bounds. I was on a total music high for about a day after that one.
Normal posting should resume shortly, now that my musical commitments are back to their usual level. Although the past week was exhausting in it's intensity, part of me is sad it's over.
I know, I know. All I ever post these days is Brazen lip gloss. But I figure a comparison of Make Out and Cherry Bomb might be helpful to at least a few people.
I usually don't upload my photos directly to blogger, but I will today for the sake of time. I apologize if the formatting is wonky or anything. Click to make them enormous- the colors are so much more accurate that way.
Cherry Bomb is on the left, Make Out on the right.
All photos natural light unless otherwise noted.
Sheered out, it's more apparent that Cherry Bomb is a cooler-based color.
Cherry Bomb is more of a cool-toned red (although not quite what I would call a "true red"), while Make Out is pinker and warmer. Cherry Bomb has more of a mirror-like finish (which is more apparent in the swatches here). Also, Make Out has a healthy dose of iridescent glitter.
If I HAD to choose one over the other, the winner would be Make Out. However, they're both beautiful glosses.
Believe it or not, I still have a bunch of Brazen lip gloss swatches to share with all of you. As I've mentioned before, Sandi of Brazen sent me samples of many of her lip glosses. Here's my little colony of lippie samples:
I love these glosses.
In honor of in retaliation against the cold, dreary, rainy weather, I would like to present Vanity. Brazen describes Vanity as "a bright vibrant coral". While it is very pretty, I found it to be more difficult to apply evenly than the other Brazen glosses I've used. However, this is only when applying opaquely- sheer application is easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy.
I'm currently moderately obsessed with things that are golden, shimmery, glowy, peachy and coral-y. Thus, La Femme from Brazen Cosmetics is definitely a favorite of mine right now. It's a gorgeous shimmery lipgloss.
A sample of this gloss was given to me by Sandi of Brazen.

I adore this gloss!
I have an exciting Friday night planned- freeing up space on my hard drive! That, and maybe some Mario Kart.
I'm a person who adores sparkle and color, especially when paired with art and creativity. Makeup is my way of bringing this with me everywhere.
