I have a problem. It’s pretty serious….
I have an addiction to pretty eye shadow. I need it, I want, it, I have to have it! In every color! I may only wear a color a few times after I buy it, but it makes me feel better knowing it’s in my stash.
Over the past year or so, I have acquired a small collection from a company called Sweet Libertine Cosmetics. Maybe you’ve heard of it?
Between the awesome sales, winning a few contests and my wonderful Mom buying me a 6 month subscription to their Eye Shadow of the Month club, I have a pretty decent selection. I was also sent some gorgeous colors free of charge for this review in addition to a special surprise for one of you- my super cool readers!
Sweet Libertine has tons of beautiful shimmery colors to choose from. All with fun names like Striptease, Freakshow and Bitchin’ Rock Star From Mars. The above photo just doesn’t do justice to the depth and beauty of these colors. Envy is a smoky green, but it also has shimmery gold in it. All the colors look different depending on what type of light you are in and the angle you are looking from.
As with all mineral eye shadows, I did need a primer to keep it on my lids. I have oily lids and if I don’t use something to counteract that, the shadow literally slides right off. With a primer, I am good to go for the day. Especially if I apply the color wet, like I did with Envy in the photo.
With prices from $5 up to $8 for eye shadow and even less for their pretty blushes, you really can’t go wrong. You can also buy a pack of random samples to jump start your own addiction! They have gift sets, lip glosses and balms. And if you head over and like the Sweet Libertine FB page, you will be able to keep up to date with any flash sales and holiday sales they have. Right now they are doing a 30% off sale, which makes some of the eye shadows as low as $3.50!
There are perks for buying from Sweet Libertine. You can join the Lusty Strumpet Society and earn free makeup! With every 10 full-size eye shadows you buy, you can claim a free eye shadow.
The Eye Shadow of the Month club is $10 a month and you get an exclusive eye shadow that isn’t sold in the regular online shop.
I do wish that there were some matte colors in the collection. I just don’t always want to be shimmery. But I think I remember hearing a rumor that matte colors might be on the way soon?
Are you excited about eye shadow yet? Are you ready to hear about the giveaway? Well, here it is…
I have a set of 3 – that’s right, 3! – beautiful shimmery colors for one of you lucky people!
Top: Smoking Gun, smokey grey/silver with a blue/green shimmer
Bottom left: Absurdity, sparkly dirty gold
Bottom right: Cafe Au Lait, tan with peach shimmer
These colors would be perfect for the holidays- especially New Year’s Eve!
I also have some samples that will come along with the full-size shadows.
To enter, leave me a comment telling me what your favorite eye shadow color is, if you would hoard these all to your self or share them with a friend if you won, or anything else you feel like sharing.
Well, anything within reason. Let’s keep it relatively clean, ok?
This giveaway will close on Monday December 10, 2012 at 12pm Pacific time, so make sure you get your entry in!
I am personally sending these out, so this is open to residents of the US. If you live outside the US, I will have to ask you to pay for the shipping costs. If that is ok with you feel free to enter.
As always, if you like the prize enough to enter, it would be nice of you to go and like Sweet Libertine’s FB page. If you feel so inclined, say thanks and tell Sarah I sent you!
A big thank you goes to Sarah for sending eye shadows for me and for this giveaway!
