Since I'm poor as a mofo I was window shopping through Etsy when I came across Rock A Betty Beauty.
The awesome banner alone sucked me in.
They had a blogger review kit that I purchased for $3.75 and in it came 5 eyeshadow samples (Lid Lustres), a sample of their Pinup Glow and a cute business card.
The samples were chosen at random and I received (and their site descriptions):
Foam - A sparkly, shimmery white
Meringue - A soft, shimmery, lemonade
Heavy - A deep, earthy golden with gold glitter.
Petal - A shimmery sweet, cotton candy pink
Smoke - A deep, navy black loaded with rainbow glitter
Going to back to the website, I notice the shop swatches are quite a bit darker than what I actually got. Especially with "Heavy". Going by the shop swatch I would have skipped right past it, but luckily a sample was included in the kit because this was my favourite shade of the bunch!
Here is the site swatch
And here is the actual
But oh wells, that's what samples are for!
On to the colour!
Never having seen this shop before I wasn't sure what to expect but as soon as I started doing up my FOTD I was super impressed!
Here was the look I did
Lid main: Heavy
Inner corner: meringue
crease liners: Smoke
And ze FACE!
And on the the swatches!

Right now all the shadows are on for dirt cheap, $3! Size is .28oz. I'll admit I didn't pay attention to size conversions in school so I assume it's what you'd normally get. Any math whiz out there can inform me otherwise, that would be awesome :)
So get them at the low price while you can, it's just temporary to get rid of old packaging.
Other than my whinyness about the site swatches being a bit off, my only other complaint is with the glitter in Heavy. They are a bit too big and don't stay well, even with my primer. One blow to get rid of the fall out stuff and the glitter flies away. It's still really pretty even without it so I will be getting a full size eventually.
Easy to blend
Not a million and 12 shades (I get overwhelmed with pages and pages of shades)
Awesome buy more, save more deals
That pesky glitter in Heavy
Site swatches iffy
When I can afford to, I shall make a real purchase. I see more colours I'd like to own :)
