Exciting Announcement - SUPER NOVA, my very own Glamour Doll Eyes eyeshadow!

Hi guys and dolls! I have been waiting very patiently to tell you all about this. As some of you might remember, I had mentioned a few weeks back about an amazing surprise that I wasn't allowed to talk about - until today! (This is a long post, so prepare yourselves!)

Back in April, I got an email from Glamour Doll Eyes. They invited me and nine other beauty bloggers/vloggers to create our own eyeshadows for their upcoming Blogger Collection (which will also be part of their permanent line)! How I could I refuse that?! I immediately said yes. Needless to say, I was ecstatic! I love the brand and I have always wanted to create my own eyeshadow ever since I can remember.They gave us complete freedom to create what we wanted. Of course, I wanted to create something that I would wear often, and something the reflects my personality and who I am as a person.

These are the promo cards featuring myself with the other lovely bloggers/vloggers!

MY INSPIRATION
If you don't already know, I have a thing for the dark and bizarre, but at the same time, I love sparkles, glitter and rainbows. I'm also passionate about our universe and how we are one with it (I even have a tattoo that reads "we are all made of stardust" in Latin). So I put my thinking cap on, and came up with my shade, SUPER NOVA. A supernova is a star that suddenly increases greatly in brightness because of a catastrophic explosion that ejects most of its mass. It's also incredibly beautiful, and one of the most powerful forces in outer space:

Here is a look I created featuring Super Nova, along with other lovely Glamour Doll Eyes shadows!


FACE:
  • Revlon Colorstay Foundation in Buff
  • MAC Studio Fix Powder in N4

EYES:
  • Glamour Doll Eyes Primer
  • NYX Jumbo Pencil in Black Bean as a base
  • Glamour Doll Eyes Foil Me
  • Glamour Doll Eyes Eyeshadow in Super Nova on lids
  • Glamour Doll Eyes Eyeshadow in Glam Girl on crease on outer lower lids
  • Glamour Doll Eyes Eyeshadow in Pinky Swear to blend out Glam Girl
  • Glamour Doll Eyes Eyeshadow in Recruit on inner lower lid
  • Glamour Doll Eyes Glitter in Techno over Recruit
  • Glamour Doll Eyes Eyeshadow in Ancestry on tear duct and brow bone
  • Wet N Wild Liquid Liner in Black
  • Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara
  • Faux Lashes in Sasha

CHEEKS:
  • NARS Blush in Amour
  • Glamour Doll Eyes Eyeshadow in Ancestry as a highlight

LIPS:
  • ELF Lipstick in Seductive
  • Lime Crime Lipstick in Coquette

THE SHADOW
Super Nova is a deep, matte black with multi-colored shimmer (aqua, green, purple, red and silver). The matte black base makes the glitter sparkle like crazy, and it resembles a galaxy. It's smooth, pigmented and rich, especially over a dark base. I am so happy with the turnout of my shade, and my friends and family love it as well. I can't stop staring at it! Since this shadow has lots of sparkle, it's definitely a shadow you want to pat on with a sticky base (like GDE's Foil Me, or Lime Crime's Eyeshadow Helper) to see it's full, gorgeous potential. 

Glamour Doll Eyes sent me a few extras of Super Nova to giveaway, so be on the look out for that!


I really hope you all love my shadow as much as I do, and that you enjoyed the look and swatches as well! If you are interested in purchasing Super Nova, or any other shade(s) in the collection, they will be available July 10th, 2012 over at glamourdolleyes.com

Check GDE's Facebook and Instagram for up-close photos of all the shades in the collection; they will be posting all them over the next two weeks.

I would like to thank Glamour Doll Eyes for this amazing, and once in a lifetime opportunity. You guys had the option to pick many other bloggers out there instead of little ol' me, so I am extremely honored and proud to be a part of this! I'm ecstatic to be immortalized into an eyeshadow! 

I hope you guys are doing well and are enjoying your summer (or winter) so far! Take care, and I'll see you all soon!
<3

  29. Why do you guys photoshop your pictures in that lil card D: you all look like cartoons, and look so much better when you don't do it...

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hey Ronnie! This is Dani from Rustic Comfort! Love the shadow and the look you chose. I was so excited when I asked Vee if you were participating in the collection since you are one of my favorite beauty bloggers!! Can't wait to pair this with Soul Sisters :-)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ahh, thank you, Dani! <3

    ReplyDelete
  32. We aren't the ones who photoshopped the cards. Glamour Doll Eyes do that to all their promotional images and give them a cartoon-y look :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. You're too sweet, thank you!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thank you!! <3

  40. It is just for fun for the promotional pictures. For real swatches were using the actual photo. They're supposed to look like cartoons. Sorry, my designer does it a lot and I didn't know people didn't like it.

  41. I love it! I bought it last night! You're awesome

    I was actually on look out for sth like it, since I have Evil Shade in Glooming, which is matte with only green sparkle... I love that one but seems like my next shopping in GDE will be with one purpose ;)
