I’m writing on a Tuesday!
I’ve just had so many awesome things showing up in my mailbox lately that I had to write some extra posts this week! Also a 10-year old called me a workaholic, so I’m trying to spend more time with hobbies and passions. Judgy 10-year old.
So as I mentioned in this post, I have really been loving Glamour Doll Eyes lately.
I think the prices ($6 for a full jar of loose eye shadow, $2.50 for a sample jar, and $1.25 for a sample baggie), are very reasonable, the shipping is fast, and it’s nice to know I’m supporting a lovely lady, rather than just a big company.
Naturally, when the September Color of the Month, (or OTM, as it’s referred to), subscription opened up, I jumped on it!
Unfortunately, since it’s such an awesome deal, ($8 total per month), everyone else and their mom also jumped on it. (Mom, if you are reading this, and got a 3 month subscription- let’s talk.) Fortunately, I was able to score a one month deal!
So here are all the pretties in my little bag. I was really pleased with the amount of products I got with my $8. And I was very pleased that there appeared to be a unicorn theme overall. I mean, who doesn’t love unicorns? Soulless people, that’s who.
“Never Be Royals” was the color of the month, and I really love it. In my swatches and in the jar, it looks fairly purple/blue pastel, but on my eyelid the gold/orange shimmer comes across more strongly. I don’t have anything like this color, and I don’t think I ever would have picked it out for myself. So this alone was worth the bag to me.
But then GDE gave me more stuff!
I am actually super excited about this Glitter Fix tube, too! I have very oily eyelids (and fat eyelids, I’ve decided, the struggle), so I’ve found with these loose indie pigments I prefer a tacky, sticky primer, as opposed to my normal one. I’ve been using e.l.f.’s Glitter Primer, but I am happy to report that this primer by Glamour Doll Eyes gets the job done well. I specifically enjoy the wand applicator, that makes using it ridiculously easy.
In the swatch below, I used it to adhere “Unicorn Tears” the mini Glitter Tube, that came with my subscription this month. Unicorn Tears stuck easily, and remained there for several hours. (Only several because I put it on my arm, and then promptly hit my arm into every surface in the nearby vicinity. I should have better luck with my actual eyelid. I hope.
Also I don’t know how I am going to use Unicorn Tears in my everyday life, but don’t worry. It will get done. ASAP. Because that is some beautiful glitter right there, friends.
Overall, nice little haul for $8! Next month, I might have to hide in a bathroom at work with my laptop to ensure I get the October subscription, but it will be worth it.*

Questions of the Day:
-Do you like unicorns? Important question, so be honest.
-How hard have you tried to buy a beauty item before? Examples: You stood in line for hours to get something, you went shopping on Black Friday, you broke a mouse clicking so much)
-What do you think of the goodies in the Glamour Doll Eyes OTM?

Yes to unicorns! I may or may not have a unicorn collection that has taken over my bedroom..
That is awesome! A childhood of My Little Pony, (the 80’s ponies, mind you), had led me to a lifelong love of unicorns. I mean they are magical horses with horns, what’s not to love?
