There are actually a few more indie subscription services that I want to try out but, since indie companies tend to be small and operated by one or two people, there is a limit to how many subscribers they can have. The GDE OTM is limited to around 120 subscribers, last I heard. I got very lucky with my GDE OTM and was able to snag a 6 month subscription. Vee, the owner of Glamour Doll Eyes, is going to be changing how the subscription service works again due to issues with a payment platform (at least that what I gleaned) so if you are interested in a chance to sign up, I would highly recommend joining the Facebook group to stay up to date on any new information.
This month I was extra happy that I had a six month subscription since it's CAT-THEMED! Crazy Cat Lady-themed, to be exact.We got three cat-themed makeup products, along with some candy and an adorable charm!
I'll start with the information card.
Also on the from of the info card, there is a neat section called "TMI (Try More Indie)", which I think is one of the best things ever! Each month we are introduced to a new indie company and are given a discount code we can use to try them. Some companies want to keep the discount code private, but others will let you share. The indie company for April is Polish Addict and they gave us the code PANC15 for 15% off, with no minimum purchase (the "sharable" option is checked on the card so I am allowed to share with you guys!). The code to good until May 31st, so you have a little over a month to make a purchase.
There is also a sneak peek of the theme of the next month OTM, which apparently be "Tattoo". It's a lot more vague of a theme (then, say, "cat lady" or "liars keep secrets") compared to other months, but I'm really interested in seeing what Vee's going to do!
Notoriously Morbid, an indie company I've actually purchased from before! This is a Coffin Kisser lip balm in the scent/flavor "Yes, Meowster". I've heard good things about Notoriously Morbid's Coffin Kisser balms, so I'm excited to give this one a try. These balms are not vegan, but they have really good ingredients: Beeswax, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Jojoba Oil, Flavor (Includes essential oils, natural extracts & artificial flavors). The flavor of this balm is described as "the perfect little ole' cat lady mix of herbal lavender, a touch of musk, and creamy vanilla". Evolution Of A Foodie reviewed this product (she gets the GDE OTM and was even the model on the info card last month) and she was unsure if lavender was a good flavor/scent for a lip balm and I kind of agree with her. It definitely smells/tastes like the description suggests, a little old cat lady, but I'm not sure if that's a positive thing. I will say that the formula itself is very hydrating and since there's no sweetener, it doesn't have a weird, sweet herbal scent flavor (which I think would be a lot worse). The Coffin Kissers retail for $3 on Notoriously Morbid's website and you can get them in French Toast flavor so... I might buy some more.
That's my April 2015 Glamour Doll Eyes Of The Month subscription! I love this subscription service and I really want to keep getting it after my six month subscription runs out (which I believe I will be able to; Vee has said that people who are currently subscribed, regardless of how much time they have left, will be put on a month to month subscription basis due to the change in payment platform). Again, if you're interested in signing up for this service, please, please, please join the Glamour Doll Eyes Facebook group so you don't miss out on anything!
Thanks for reading! <3
