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.
*Employers, if you are reading this- I am joking! Totally joking!
