Product Review and a Giveaway!!

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by this wonderful online beauty supply retailer, Beauty of a Site. They carry tons of my favorite brands like Essie, OPI, Tigi and Fusion Beauty. They asked me to pick a product to review and that they would give me a product to giveaway to my wonderful readers as well!

"Beauty of a Site is an online beauty supply retailer dedicated to providing high quality, up and coming, and exclusive products. With over 5000 choices from popular mainstream brands as well as exclusive, hard-to-find boutique lines, Beauty of a Site is proud to provide hand-picked items from the very best the industry has to offer. Offering a personalized shopping experience from the comfort of your home, Beauty of a Site is committed to the very best quality at your utmost convenience. We're continually adding new products and working to keep prices competitive, making your shopping experience our top priority."

I wanted to make sure I picked something that I was not familiar with and had never tried. I followed my obsession with eyeshadows and chose...

DuWop Crush Eye Shadow Trio

Trio in Lava with a burgundy plum, pale champagne rose, & an opulent bronzy gold



I have to say that I really enjoyed this product. The colors in the trio really intrigued me because I don't have many of them in current eyeshadow collection. Now I tried a few different looks and the one I have pictured above turned out the best. I used my Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin and also my fave mascara L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes.

I was really impressed with the burgundy plum and bronzy gold color. They are so vibrant and unlike anything I have. However, the pale champagne rose color was not very impressive. It's more like a brown than a rose and I have a bunch of colors just like it. It showed up really light and I had to apply a lot of it to show up. I thought it was really weird because the other two colors are not that way at all. They are perfect for a night out though, definitely not your everyday colors.

If you buy a lot of your cosmetics online, you have to check out this site. Beauty of a site carries brands that you just can't get everywhere and they are always running shipping specials. Another great thing about them? They are woman owned and operated, which I love! I definitely recommend them.

Now for the part you have all been waiting for, Beauty of a Site is letting me giveaway...

DuWop Crushed Velvet Eye Kit
The kit includes Crush Metallic Shadow, totally smudge-proof black Eyecatcher eyeliner and a mini Lash Venom mascara. Plus it all comes in a travel bag! I'm totally jealous!
