POP Beauty Swatches & GIVEAWAY!

I just saw The Gloss Goss' blog post about POP Beauty... so I thought I'll do one as well :) You can click HERE to view The Goss' post. I mentioned I was going to do a post a few weeks ago and then I didn't get around to ever doing the swatches.. but I do have some pictures of their Eye Cakes and one Cheek Cake to share :)

Naked Mocha Eyes Eye Cake

Naked Blue Eyes Eye Cake

Naked Brown Eyes Eye Cake

Naked Green Eyes Eye Cake

These are all very fun shadows. The color payoff is pretty sheer & comparable to drugstore eye shadows.. but I do really like these. The colors are great & they are perfect for a natural sweep of color on your lids. I like using these as my daytime eye shadows. The tin packaging reminds me of Cargo's packaging. It may not be the prettiest packaging, but they are convenient to toss in your bag. You'd be surprised how light these are. Holding one tin feels as light as a piece of paper in my hand. lol

Beach Babe Beauty Cake

This duo consists of a soft pink & a golden bronzer. Both are very natural.

I'm not sure where you can purchase POP beauty (other than their website), but they do have all of these products on allcosmeticswholesale. Click the following link for cheap: http://www.allcosmeticswholesale.com/pop-beauty.html

I purchased a duplicate of all of these for one reader of mine! So, the winner will receive all 4 eye cakes & 1 cheeky cake shown (new of course). I will ship anywhere in the world, so anyone can enter. The rules are very simple. 1) You must be a follower of my blog. 2) Post a comment saying one fact about yourself, so I can learn more about you! And, include your e-mail address so I can contact you if you won.

The giveaway will end on MARCH 3RD. That's in one week! Winner will be announced on the 4th. Good Luck!

  46. (forgot my email in the comment above!)

    Hey doll! Happy follower for awhile now :] Fabulous giveaway! Ive never tried this brand and these all look amazing! Please enter me pretty*

    My fact: My mother got in a very bad car accident when I was in her tummy. I was supposed to be a Christmas baby but ended up joining the Earth on October 7th (ironically 7 is a lucky number!). I was a preemie, weighing only 3lbs! They pumped me up to 4lbs before I could leave. No worries, as I am nice & plump now! My immune system however is non-existent and I have been sick almost every month since birth. Including pneumonia my first week here! My veins were too tiny so they had to place them in my head instead and I wore cabbage patch doll clothes for many months. I also had Hemangiomas at birth, also nicknamed "Strawberrys". These are massive raised tumors with blood vessels. I had a smaller sized one that looked like the India marking on my forehead and then a huge one on the back of my head. The one on my forehead faded to be my skintone color and almost went away, I now just just have a scar with a slight raise to it. The one on the back of my head had to be removed, it was about the size of a baseball and I can no longer grow hair there :(.I used to be insecure and refused to wear my hair up, as its thin as is and doesn't cover much, but I am now confident with it and its my lil battle wound at birth! If I were to be hit on that spot, I would bleed to death though- kinda scary!

    Okay, so that was more than necessary but ya said you wanted to get to know us and those were probably the ones no one ever knows or will know about me!

    Thanks for the wonderful opportunity girl and good luck to everyone!
