I am a big fan of My Beauty Addiction (MBA). I was browsing Etsy last year and came across this store and have been purchased a few shadow samples. I only own four full size shadows (from a special they had). Personally the best thing about this store is not only the wide range of gorgeous shadows but the samples. You can purchase samples of any shadow you want and they come in little baggies. You’ll be surprised at the amount you get (very generous samples).

I recently ordered the Molten Metals SAMPLER for $7.50 + $2.50 shipping – this collection includes eight gorgeous colors which are made from bronze, zinc and copper powders and blended with silica. The eyeshadows are very pigmented and finely milled for a super smooth and silky texture and application.
Whenever I purchase MBA samples I put them in Coastal Scents 5g jars (I don’t like to keep the bags) and then I put a sifter on and reuse the labels. You get a lot for a sample, these jars are almost full 🙂 They are very pigmented, easy to apply,very metallic, smooth.

Seriously how gorgeous are these shadows, OMG!!! all my looks next week will be based on this collection. I want all these eyeshadows 🙂
I another post I’ll swatch and review the other MBA shadows I have, love those too.
This week I decided to revisit those shadows that I haven’t used in a long time. I love brown neutral looks so went with all browns today.
I used all four colors in the Body Shop’s Shimmer Cubes #06 (got this last year for $30 when they had a FaceBook Face Book Special last September); Marshmallow, Honeeycomb, Dark Chocolate and Chocolate Chip. I used Revlon’s Sable in the crease/outer edge and Body Shop’s #10 to highlight.
BS Shimmer cube #6 swatches. This was a limited edition product but I think over all The Body Shop’s shimmer cubes are very hard to find, 95% of the time they are not even in stores. I have two others which I’ll do looks with this week.
