Hello! I think it's been a while since I last posted anything... I've been buying a lot more online recently, which means I have to wait for my orders to come! I've also had some issues with shipping (notice how I haven't shown you guys my Fall Soap Box yet? There was a shipping issue and Fortune Cookie Soap was kind enough to send me a new one and so I'll be posting about it soon!) so it's been a little quiet around here.
But now it's a long holiday weekend and I got some neat stuff so hopefully this will be a big posting/filming weekend! To get things rolling, I'll start with a post I've been putting off for no good reason: my very first Glamour Doll Eyes order! I was so impressed with my August 2014 OTM (the Glamour Doll Eyes subscription service) that I placed an order for the whole Art Deco and Paper Runway collections in the sample jar size! I got free shipping since I was purchasing samples and it shipped out wicked quick!
Inconspicuous vanilla bubble mailer full of magic! My camera could not figure out how to color balance this...it's been grouchy about oranges lately.
I'll start with how my order came.
You also get a special color of the month for free with your order! For August, it was Golden Halo, which is an awesome gold and, again, one of the reasons I placed this order. I'm actually waiting to see what September's color will be and...will probably make another purchase.
I'll start with the Paper Runway collection! I purchased this whole collection because a. it was cheaper to buy them all at once and b. I really like all the colors! They feel more muted and soft; not quite pastel but still very feminine.
Along with the Paper Runway collection, I also got the Art Deco collection! I loved the bright, funky colors and, since a lot of the colors are GDE best sellers, I thought it would make a good "starter" order. Again, I'm going to go in the same order the colors are listed in the collection on the site, which is alphabetical.
Overall I am just over the moon by how awesome these pigments are! I know my swatches are sad, but seriously, I've played with these pigments and have made some really interesting looks; I love the versatility of these pigments as well. I can apply a more sheer wash of color if I use them dry or I can make them "in-your-face" intense; whatever I want! I also like knowing which ones I can use on my lips since I think it will be a ton of fun layering these. If you're interested in getting into indie cosmetics, or if you're looking for something unique, definitely check out Glamour Doll Eyes!
Thanks for reading! <3
