Glamour Doll Eyes- Bloggers Collection

 All products were sent for consideration.
 I did not purchase any of these products.


A few weeks ago the lovely Vee of Glamour Doll Eyes sent me tons of product to swatch (not that I have any issue with that!). I never expected to see so many gorgeous colors laid out in front of me. There were colors and finishes for everyone's taste. I was left speechless with some colors!

I loved all of the colors I received. I didn't have any issue with them except for the matte colors, but I believe that was part my own fault. Instead of using primer I used GDE's Foil Me and it made it a bit too tacky so the matte shades stuck instead of blending smoothy. COMPLETELY my fault for being a dummy and not thinking about it until afterwards. Oh well, live and learn. Everything was super pigmented and easy to apply and blend.

All are swatched over GDE's Foil Me.

Calypso- "a deepened teal with purple and gold sparkle. This color was named and inspired by aliciad372."

Going Green- " bright yellow, almost chartreuse with green sparkles and a slight green duochrome. This color was named and inspired by cosmeticcouturier."

June Bug- "a burgundy (more on the purple side) with lots of green sparkle. This color was named and inspired by shannnybannny."

 Lexington- "a satin white with green sparkles."

 Mackinac- "(pronounced mak-in-aw) is mint sea foam green with red sparkle. This color was named and inspired by jessFACE90."

Morocco- "a dark shimmery brown with gold sparkle. This color was named and inspired by aquaheart."

Nymphette- "a blackened purple blue with purple and blue sparkles. This color was named and inspired by Nymphette."

Obscure- "a matte greyish taupe with purple undertones. This color was named and inspired by prettymaking."

Soul Sisters- "a light tan with purple and blue sparkle. This color was named and inspired by gleamogirljoelle and rusticcomfort."

Southern Lace- " hot pinkish red with silver and red sparkles. This color was named and inspired by luckypiper."

Sparkler- "a rosy pink with silver sparkles. Might shine a bit of orange undertone depending on the light. This color was named and inspired by thatgirlshaexo."

 Super Nova- "a matte black with multi-colored shimmers. This color was named and inspired by bowsandcurtseys."

My favorite colors from this collection are Soul Sisters, Nymphette and Super Nova.

A Quick Update!


I know, I know. I never got around to posting the last set of Black Rose Mineral swatches but I have good reasoning. I had my little girl on November 23rd! She's the absolute best thing ever (of course I may be biased). I love her so much and I love spending every moment I can with her.

I will be back to blogging soon, promise! I really would like to do some new things on here (still makeup related of course) but I haven't figured it out yet lol. I will eventually make a swatch gallery through Flickr if people would like me to do so. I've been planning to do this for well over a year, but yeah, I'm a bit slow.

I haven't been completely missing though! I have been doing swatches for two bigger (in my mind) indie makeup companies. One of those being Moi Mineral Cosmetics. I had never tried anything from the company before working with the owner, but I will say I am completely impressed with the colors, formula and pigmentation. I had absolutely no issues with the application and of course everything was swatched over LA Splash Eyeshadow Sealer/Base for the swatch photos on Moi's website.

I'll let everyone know when I'm done with the other companies swatches. I'll be announcing/sharing on my Facebook page before my blog, so you can keep an eye out on there if you'd like.

Alrighty, back to work (diaper duty is work, right?).
