 The kind people over at GlamourDollEyes.com generously let me pick 6 products from their website and I was very excited to, and it took me DAYS to decide what I wanted. Everything is so pretty, haha. I love discovering and trying out new products and companies and sharing them with you all. The following review is 100% honest and unbiased. I wouldn't rave about something to you guys if I truly didn't like it. So read on, and enjoy the pretty colors!

I was seriously impressed with these loose mineral shadows! There are tons of indie makeup companies out there, and Glamour Doll Eyes really stands out from the crowd. Their packaging is cute and grungy and totally fun. I also really like the fact that the names of a lot of their products are named by customers/fans. So sweet. You can tell that a lot of thought and effort are put into these products. Knowing that they are also cruelty-free and mostly vegan is a HUGE plus in my book, and they are also very affordable. 

As for the shadows themselves, they are great! They are smooth, velvety and pigmented. They blend easily and nicely, and the color payoff is amazing. I adore all the color choices and the names are whimsical and creative. They also offer glitters which are to die for! I used their red glitter, Fierce in my last post, Broken Hearts Parade. You can check that out HERE. Fierce is incredibly sparkly, fine and rich. You can barely tell it's glitter when you touch it. I will be definitely purchasing some in the future and build a collection!  I also got a small sample of "Foil Me" which is serum-like primer that intensifies the shadows and/or glitter. 

Here are some swatches and close ups of the products for you:
(click to enlarge)



Their full sized Eyeshadows are priced at an affordable $6.00, and their Eye Lights (glitter) are priced at $4.00. (Full Jar (No Sifter): 2-2.5 grams of product in a 5 gram jar, and Full Jar (With Sifter): 1.5-2 grams of product in a 5 gram jar). As you can see, you get less product with a sifter.

Sample sizes start at $1.25 (.5 gram in a baggie) or $2.25 for a sample jar (1 gram of product in a 5 gram jar).

Aqua Foil is a turquoise color with a hint of gorgeous gold!
Hello Brooklyn is a very unique blend of matte and shimmer. This color includes a matte black mixed with a shimmery green and blue.
Trend Setter is a soft metallic greenish blue.
Tattooed is a very unique blend of matte and shimmer. This color includes a bright blue mixed with a gorgeous shimmery purple.
Ladies Night is a beautiful matte black with a hint of aqua glitter!
Fierce is a fine, red glitter powder and is super sexy.
Adorable, right?
Cute pamphlets! 

All in all, I really love these shadows and company! I will totally buy from them in the near future and I hope you all do. I really don't think you will be disappointed.

  23. You have such a talent, I admire all your make ups. My favourite thing about them is how you can blend them in, the shine and sparkles and the shape of the eyeshdow applied on your lid - it's perfect, winged out a little bit but not too much and it doesn't go up like other people do it. I tried one of your make ups before and it worked great for me too.

  37. I love the GDE shadows! I don't have very many and want them all so it's always hard to decide on which ones. I also love that you can order samples so you can try different colors before buying a full size.
