Brija Haul Review + Swatches


You know what the middle of the week needs? A haul. We are all tired and I think we just need a bit of a pick me up! I recently placed a small(ish) order from Brija Cosmetics and I wanted to swatch everything for you guys!

Eyeshadows: I picked up a few eyeshadows but I decided to swatch the ones that are in the permanent collection to make sure you can still get them!


You Are Not My Mother – This is the most pigmented, vivid navy blue. It has a gorgeous sparkle and is not patchy in the least! I have a lot of issues with blue eyeshadows being patchy and hard to blend but this eyeshadow is GORGEOUS! Definitely a favorite!

Legends – This is a deep antique gold that leans a bit green. I really love this. It’s definitely a “me” color. Super pigmented and very versatile!

Tired of the Same Old Thing – I just can’t stay away from the bronzy shadows. This has a slight orangey undertone which I really love.

Pink Frosting – I decided I needed something a bit fun and out of the box. This bright pink shadow did the trick! I can’t wait to wear this on the lid or in the inner corner of the eye!

Lipsticks: I picked up two new lipsticks from Brija. I just wanted a few more wearable, everyday shades.


Scotland Cream Wand Lipstick – This is a warm nudey brown. I absolutely LOVE this. It’s a cream lipstick and it’s just so moisturizing and pigmented. Its the perfect everyday lip color for me. I have a look coming up featuring this lipstick so keep a look out for that!

Antique Satin – I have been eyeing up this shade for a long time! It’s cool and slightly greigey/purple but still so wearable. I absolutely am in love with this color. I wore this lipstick in my last post (linked here).

Have you tried any of these products? Anything on your wish list that I should pick up!? Let me know down in the comments, I hope you all have a lovely week!
