While exploring new natural & cruelty-free makeup brands, I tried some new products from Brija Cosmetics. Here’s what I thought about a few items.
The items I ordered were 1 eye primer, 1 cream shadow & 1 powder shadow but I also got some free samples! I enjoyed how well-made and packaged the cosmetics were, but I definitely see more potential for growth in the label with the Brija Cosmetics logo. The sticker looks like it will fade over time and the color doesn’t look as saturated like on the website.
It’s pretty true to color when you wear it. I was surprised at how it felt more silicone-y than I expected for a cream shadow. It’s a pretty color but it does take layers to build up to the color that you see in the pan. For some reason, my shadow pan moves around in the black container but it doesn’t come off so it works for me.
It works as a primer for all shadows. I like how it wears and the application process is easy. I just use my fingers and apply a light coat on my lids. I do think it helps my eye shadow last longer but it’s difficult to tell how long because my eyelids aren’t very oily.
This is my absolute favorite! I love the color when I swatch it but it looks amazing when I use it on my eyes. It’s a powder shadow so it can be susceptible to fall out if you don’t tap out the excess off the brush before you apply. Also I’d like to mention that this is part of the Harry Potter inspired collection which was a cool bonus!
Woogity, woogity, woogity is a light, glittery pink from Brija Cosmetics 90’s collection. I don’t think it’s the right color for my skin tone and it’s too glittery for my taste. But it’s great to get to try out a color from the newest collection. I think it’s possible to wear this as a highlight, however I will pass this on to a friend or family member.
Topless was the gift with purchase that I was waiting for and it does not disappoint. It’s a very light peachy tone that works great as an everyday color and perfect all over the lid or blended in with other colors. It’s also a great pinky color that reminds me of the Naked3 palette shadows.

I had to share this photo of the color Always the Tone of Surprise on the outer corner of my eyes. It’s an amazing rust brown color and it’s the perfect natural makeup alternative to the color Fire in the Stila In The Know palette. If you’ve been looking for this color like I have, just go buy it now! You won’t regret it.
Overall I really enjoyed the makeup from Brija Cosmetics and I will be using these on the daily (especially the Matte Eyeshadow)! The prices are incredibly affordable and it’s a growing company so I love the new releases that come out every so often.
