Pretty Addictions Mineral Cosmetics Review: Not Coming Home Alone Tonight

Pretty Addictions Mineral Cosmetics is an online makeup store created by Kassandra of Pretty Addictions Blog. Sounds familiar? Well, I featured Kassandra in a Spotlight post a couple months ago, which you can read here.

Pretty Addictions Mineral Cosmetics offers a Blogger/YouTube/Promoter Special of $18.75 worth of products for $12 (and a mini package of $6.75 worth of products for $5). There were 3 different collections available for this promotion and I chose "Not Coming Home Alone Tonight". I received a full sized blush, a 10g jar of eyeshadow, 5g jar of eyeshadow, a clamshell sample and a bag sample.

I also purchased another 10g jar eyeshadow and because I spent over $15, I received a 5g jar of the eyeshadow of the week FOR FREE!

...and this deal wasn't good enough, SHIPPING IS ONLY $2! My whole order totaled to about $20.

The Big "O" is a shimmery peach blush. It comes in a 20g jar (Retail Value: $7.50), which has a sifter. It applies smoothly but I have to be very careful to apply lightly because the shimmer can be a little too much for me.

Silver Screen is a silver shimmer eyeshadow. I received this eyeshadow in a 10g jar (Retail Value: $5.50). The color payoff is great!

Wicked is a deep purple eyeshadow with some shimmer. I received this eyeshadow in a 5g jar (Retail Value: $3.50). This is a great crease color.

Locked and Loaded is a gunmetal grey eyeshadow with irridescent glitter that I received in a clamshell sample (Retail Value: $1.25). This is another great crease color but I apply this lightly so I don't end up looking like a racoon haha!

Pina Colada is a white shimmer eyeshadow that I love using in the inner corners of my eyes and as a highlight. Unfortunately, Pretty Addictions no longer sells bag samples so I cannot give you the Retail Value, but this does come in clamshell sample size, 5g jar and 10g jar.

Now here is the eyeshadow I purchased (seperate price from the Blogger Package):

25 Karat Gold is a straight up gold eyeshadow that I am SO IN LOVE WITH. Honestly, I don't think I will ever love another eyeshadow as much as I love this one. The color payoff is AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING, I kid you not! I mean, the swatch above is only one light swipe from the eyeshadow. I purchased the 10g jar (Retail Value: $6) because this is a Limited Edition eyeshadow so I did not want to take a chance only buying the 5g (because I knew I was going to love it before I even bought it!).
Free Eyeshadow of the Week (for spending over $15):

Vintage Doll is a light, rusty pink with irredescent glitter. I received a 5g jar (Retail Value: $3.50). This is a beautiful, soft pink eyeshadow that would also look great on the cheeks!
Overall, I really love Pretty Addictions Mineral Cosmetics company. Trust me - I placed another order a week after purchasing this one! Kassandra provides awesome customer service and great deals.

My Halloween giveaway ends tomorrow!
