BB Couture Eve & a BB Giveaway!

CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED!

I ordered 6 shades of the newly released BB Couture Infamous Lovers collection from Kim at Overall Beauty, and she was kind enough to include 2 shades, Clyde and Carla for a giveaway! You can read more about that near the end of the post, but let's have a look at the stunning Eve from this collection first.

Above & Below: Ahh, the Many Faces of Eve...this drab (in a good way!), darker than olive green shimmer is packed with multi colored glitter. It also has a faint sheen of coppery pink that appears in brighter lighting as you can see in the first photo. In the shade (below), it darkens to a forest green and the multi colored glitter all but disappears, leaving only the lighter green glitter. I used two coats and this applied in the standard BB Couture style--perfectly.

Below: Various macro shots of this ever-changing green.

Below: These are the two shades Kim included for a giveaway. Clyde is a darker kelly green shade, and in my mind, similar to what NARS Zulu may look like--not that I have it to compare it to, I'm just sayin'! It's a little darker than my photo, but not as dark as a forest green. Carla is a beautiful purple shimmer that appears to glow even in the bottle. Now that I see these two in person, I'm kicking myself for not ordering them!

We'll keep the giveaway simple, using the same format as I do on my Friday Follower Freebie contest. If you'd like to enter, just leave your eMail in the comments section below. Followers only, please. I'll choose the winner Monday morning and announce it in my Come Monday column, so get your entries in before Monday, mid-morning. Notre Dame pulled off the win 23-10, so I'm going to go celebrate now!!! Coincidence that we're giving away a kelly green shade and their new coach is named Brian Kelly?!!

Make sure to follow Overall Beauty on Facebook and take advantage of her 15% coupon code, Facebook5. This special runs until Monday, September 6 at 6:00 Pacific time.

    enter me please and thank you
    i placed my order today
    i got some yellows: Daisy Dweller, Peacock, Pina Colada and Shift Stick
    and Dirty Mother because I couldn't resist after Lextard described it as chocolate milk and strawberry milk mixed together
    odd for me not to get any BB greens in an order but I have been wanting to try the yellows - Eve looks lovely and I am very interested in Adam (it looks like a brown green duochrome)

  23. Hey you said you ordered 6 shades from infamous lovers.
    You are wearing Eve now and you are kicking yourself for not ordering Clyde and Carla so which other 5 did you get?
    hmmmm Bonnie? did you get Adam? Is it a brown green duochrome.
    I have been wanting a brown green duo but what looks like a brown green duo in online swatches turns out to be mostly purple irl for me.
