Giveaway: Glitters and Bubbles

The lovely Amanda T. is hosting a giveaway on her blog of glittery delights, Glitter and Bubbles.  What's so special about this, you might well ask, and you would have a point--there are many giveaways hosted every day by lovely people all over the world.

Here's something that makes this giveaway unique and wonderful: Amanda is offering not one, or two, or even a few, but six jars of shimmery, sparkly, colorful eye candy.  Even more enticing is the fact that the shades included in this mini-haul are in themselves unique and wonderful, for two reasons--first, they were manufactured by the recently closed and much-lamented Aromaleigh (renowned for quality product made by an indie company) and second, these shades were "oops" shades--happy accidents that were not offered up for sale until the company closed its doors (purging its vaults in the process).

This makes them a rarity twice over!

A mini-rainbow of Aromaleigh--six shades for the lucky winner!

Ever the sweet and thoughtful beauty, and mindful of the health and safety of her followers, Amanda has gone that extra mile and repackaged the goods in clean, clear jars:

"All of these eye shadows have been repotted from baggies. In case you're wondering how sanitary this is, I swabbed the jars with alcohol, covered my work area with a paper towel and I wore nitrile gloves the entire time. Each jar has a sealed sifter to prevent product loss."
I love this!!  This is putting the concept of "inner beauty" into practice by looking out for the well-being of others, whether in RL or the virtual world.  Amanda is an amazing role model for this and I admire the example she sets here.

Well enough of my soapbox (heehee!), back to the pretties!!

One winner will get them all!!

Amanda describes these lovely "oops" shades as follows:

Ooops #1 - Silvery gray with copper sparkles and a hint of rainbow sparkle
Ooops #2 - Medium blue/green with rainbow sparkle
Ooops #3 - Golden beige with rainbow sparkle
Ooops #4 - Light pink/purple with aqua sparkle
Ooops #5 - Medium green with green and rainbow sparkle
Ooops #6 - Dark dusty purple with holographic sparkle

Gorgeousness!!  Considering both the awesome that is Amanda T (she is an absolute rock star when it comes to swatches!) and the uniqueness of the prize, I urge you to go check out her blog, Glitters and Bubbles, and enter her giveaway here.  The contest is open until May 5, 2011.  And don't forget to be a good guest, check out her other well-written posts, and share your (positive!) thoughts with her.  I certainly did ;)

Good luck all my lovely followers!
