Pretty Addictions swatches

Sorry for the complete and utter crap look of the swatches. I decided to do them on my hand instead of my arm like I usually do..
Pretty Addictions recently offered their "let me upgrade you'' sale - 6 10g jars for the price of 5g jars. 25 sets were available, with each order getting a special surprise, and one order getting an extra special surprise. I had to get in on this.
Without further ado, here's the pics!

First swatch of each color is over my usual NYX primer, second is over bare skin.
Top row, left to right: Royal Rebel, Sober, Kiwi
Bottom row: Mojito, Tickled Mermaid, Electric Lemonaid

Royal Rebel and Tickled Mermaid are both newer colors, and I have completely fallen in love with Royal Rebel. I'm a sucker for anything purple, and this is...just...just look at it. I want to bathe in this.

Burred so you can see the sparkle in Sober and Tickled Mermaid.
This is just to show the staying power of the NYX Base Camp primer. Love this stuff. This was after soap and water!

This is Royal Rebel, in all its shimmery sparkly glory <3

And now, a few quick, sorta-half-assed eye pics. I think they would have come out better had I not nearly blinded myself with my mascara. 

Tickled Mermaid on lid, Royal Rebel as highlight, Physicians' formula gel eye liner (this stuff is a godsend, btw) and LUXX mascara. The mascara is great, but sometimes applies a bit too thickly, which is how I nearly blinded myself earlier...globs of mascara on the eyeball don't feel too nice.

Now, you may be asking yourself 'gee, where's the special surprise gift you mentioned up above?' (provided you actually read this and don't just stop in to look at the pictures XD)

Well, I kinda can't show it to you. The surprise gift was a code for a free eyeshadow, and I just can't go giving it away, otherwise I wouldn't be able to use it for myself. Fear not, though! Pretty Addictions are super inexpensive, so even without a coupon code, you can still get your hands on some awesome pretties without putting a dent in your wallet. My personal recommendations are Gossip, Obnoxious, Royal Rebel, and 25 Karat Gold. Vintage Doll also seems to be a big seller, but I haven't gotten to try that one yet. Kas also just released a line of glitters called Shattered Diamonds *drools*

One more little tidbit of info: Pretty Addictions' Facebook page facebook.com/prettyaddictions is holding a contest! Any of you lovely ladies who are lucky enough to already have PA's awesome products can participate. Head on over to her page, check out the contest, and enter to win! The contest ends Sunday, so get your looks ready!
