I'm into eye makeup and I also love colorful shades which lets be honest barring MACs & Inglots are scarcely to be seen in Indian brands.
I want a good variety of shades, good pigmentation and quality and obviously pocket friendly prices.Not many shadows lived up to my exacting standards.So for the second time I decided to haul a bunch of shadows from Glamour Doll eyeshadows.After all a Girls's gotta shop! I love the high fun quotient of GDE eyeshadows. I had bought 8-9 shades last time and ended up using so many of those in my Project 101 Eye makeup look.
Glamour Doll Eyes is owned by Vaness Barney a.k.a. Vee, who runs a One woman show-she mixes the eyeshadows,gives them quirky names,packages them, handles shipping and what not all by herself! Whew!
GDE has a dazzling array of eyeshadow shades and the pigmentation is intense, all the shades also have very fun & quirky names.A lot of shadows are created and named in collaboration with otherInternet Beauty Gurus a.k.a Vbloggers and bloggers as well.
In fact the cute brand logo you see was created by one of GDE customer and was selected by users as a result of a user poll.
I hauled a whole bunch of eyeshadow sample jars and some sample baggies,plus I got 2 free sample baggies, i all I think I hauled some 24-25 shades!! I bought a mix of permanent eyeshadows, some special edition eyeshadows from' The Twi-shadows collection' and Eye lights.
The Twi shadows is actually a Twilight inspired eyeshadow collection and has shades inspired by all the characters of the Cullen Family & of course Bella-Guess what is Bella's shade called? "Just Bitten"
Glamour Doll eyeshadows has recently released their Blogger collection- 12 eyeshadow shades inspired by Internet Beauty Gurus.I'm already eying
all some of the shades from the collection :P
Each eyeshadow sample jar is individually sealed with shrink wrap. Also each shade clearly specifies whether its Vegan or not and also whether it is safe for use on Lips or not.
The full sized jars of these shadows are priced at $ 6 & sample sized jars cost $ 2.5 & sample baggie cost $ 1.25 a piece.
They offer Free international shipping on orders above $40, so you can club your order with friends and avail free international shipping as well.
You can check out eyeshadow swatches on skin at Glamour Doll eyes site itself which honestly makes Online shopping a breeze.
The glittery shadows that you see in the pics below are called eye lights and are ultra fine glitter and are soft like pigments.These will be great for some colorful ultra glam looks :D
That holographic silvery glitter you see in this pic is called 'Hollywood' Oh Boy I'm just itching to use it in an EOTD!
And now for one of the Product sampling policies I have come across
If you purchase a sample and you decided that you want to go ahead and get the full size jar, GDE will take the price of the sample off the price of the full jar. Please email Glamour Doll Eyes before placing your order so they can make you a coupon code!
