Rock A Betty Beauty is a fun little shoppe on Etsy that I recently did a look with. You can see it here. I got a nice little samplin' from them and it came in a cute retro popcorn bag that I gave to my 9 year old who thought it was so fun. Here are the first swatches of the colours I received:From L to R
Rehab: Pure vivid matte white with large flecks of royal blue glitter
Primal: Dark matte black with some black sheen
Maneater: Flaming fuschia with large bright pink bits of glitter
Above was taken indoors, no flash. I love Rehab so much I picked it up full size with another colour, Pandora (a plum rust shade). Right now Maneater is half off at $3.50 for a 10g jar! Yowza! Tell her Tianne told you about it! I loved Maneater and as bright pink as it was, I didn't experience any irritation or glitter fallout. Really a nice shade if you want Dollipop from Sugarpill but are on a budget.
From L to R
Security Breach: Vibrant lemon yellah
FrostBite: Midtone grey blue with large bits of silver glitter- surprisingly pretty! A romantic vintage blue with some sparkle
I also received Pin Up Pink All Over Shimmer powder that I originally thought was a blush and didn't like because it was so pale. Then I used it as a finishing powder and saw how fresh and bright my skin looked and really liked it! If BeneFit Dandelion is too 'pinky' for you, this would be a great substitute. Although it states it's a shimmer powder, I found it to be very matte and not gleamy or pearled or shimmery at all and frankly, I liked that!
My overall thoughts on Rock A Betty were that I loved the idea of the shoppe and the popcorn bag mailer- that was really fun to open! The large sized glitter may not be a hit with some, but I didn't experience fallout or disco flashes on my eyes, or irritation. If anything, they were a nice spark and refreshing from the more finely milled glitters. Very wearable. I loved seeing the pop of blue with Rehab- loved it!
Overall Opinion: A++
I loved Rock A Betty's stuff so much that I favorited them on Etsy and ordered some full sizes. Do you like Rock A Betty? I'm wanting to try their Happy Chappy lip balm as it has Clementine oil in it and I looove me an orange scent. Who knows, Christmas is coming up- it might be a great giveaway item so stay tuned!! *hint hint*
