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:

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).
