Since I'm always looking for new indie makeup companies to love, I came across Dawn Eyes Cosmetics.
Here's a little more about the company from the website:
"Dawn Eyes Cosmetics is a very small mineral makeup start-up located
in mid-Missouri, USA. The inspiration for Dawn Eyes Cosmetics
was the closing of a mineral makeup company from which I used to
purchase all of my eye shadows. An investment in raw ingredients
from the closing company brought more than I could possibly use in a
lifetime, and so I started making eye shadows for friends and family.
Once I had started I couldn't get enough of creating gorgeous shades:
simple day-to-day shades, pearly and soft shimmering shades, and all-out
creations that I love to wear day or night."
I'm not exactly sure how many colors there are in her company, but if I had to guess it would be over a hundred. It can be a little overwhelming at first, but it is definitely worth looking through each section and at each color. Once I saw that there were so many choices of eyeshadow, I quickly made a purchase. Samples are $1 and full sizes are $6 (unless noted). Clearance shades are $2.75 and shipping is free if your order is over $10.
I purchased a Reviewer pack, samples of the Winnie the Pooh collection and a clearanced full size. Once I ordered I never expected my products to be packed up all nice and pretty within a day! That's truly amazing! I believe the shipping was 2 days (excluding the weekend). I received everything in a padded envelop enclosed in a sachet bag. All of my samples were neatly tucked away in little ziplock baggies. No spills what-so-ever. I also received 5 free samples with my order!
I loved absolutely EVERYTHING I received. I know I will be ordering again soon!
I'll have swatches of everything up very soon. The first collection that will be up is the Winnie the Pooh collection! Keep your eyes open for it!
