Glamour Doll Eyes ♥ Review

Have you heard of Glamour Doll Eyes?

If not, then you're missing out! They are an eyeshadow company that "strives to bring you fashionable and unique colors to strut your stuff!  All of their ingredients are made from earth minerals and are FDA approved for eyeshadow use."

I've previously bought their cyber monday sample packs which gave me plenty of sample sized eyeshadows from their Big Cities collection and 80s Child collection. (click on links to see full review and swatches) Those were my first experience with GDE and i was definitely impressed

anyways, i was contacted by the lovely people from Glamour Doll Eyes to do a review and i was more than happy to and super excited!! I was allowed to pick out 6 shadows of my choice for this review and trust me, this is NOT an easy thing to do! I had to cut down from a list of almost 20 shadows that i really wanted! lol anyways, heres my review!

Dont forget - you can click on all pictures to see them in full size! :D

super cute packaging :)

all the items included in the package :)

i LOVE how the GDE team promotes honest reviews. I would never review something or write something just for the sake of pleasing a company and im sure a TON of other bloggers are with me on this one. We tell it like it is! :)

the shades i ended up choosing

close up of the packaging

all containers neatly packaged so you know they are brand new :)

Packaging - 5/5
I love the cute design on each of these eyeshadows :) Glamour Doll Eyes recently re-did their packaging and i love it! The jars are sturdy and the lids twist shut tight so no leaking even if thrown around abit (just remember to be careful when you open the lids!) I also love how GDE seals all eyeshadows shut with a plastic wrap. This lets me know that the shadows are 100% brand new and also prevent leakage during mailing :)


Now, time for more detailed pictures of each eyeshadow!

 He Loves Me Not
a neutral beige with some warm rose undertones

i lovee this neutral shade! Its very similar to MAC's All that glitters (i'll be comparing them shortly) and i love using this all over my lid just to brighten up my eyes for an natural everday look.

My Belle
a mix between orange and a reddish pink color, then has a twist of deep gold specks

My belle is soo pretty! It looks like an intense orange in the jar, but it comes off as a pretty pink with an orange and sometimes even blueish sheen.. meaning in different lights, this will look different! soooo gorgeous!

a rich red with medium sheen that rubs down to an intense, almost metallic pink

This is a intense bright warm red tone shade. Red's a tougher shade to use on the eyes because it can make your eyes look puffy, but since this has an orange-brown undertone, it makes it more workable! plus, this blends really really well so im looking forward to experiementing more with this shade :)

These first three shadows have less shimmer out of the six and have more of a sheen to them. The following three shadows are packed with shimmer!

  Brown Eyed Girl
an extremely shimmery brown with hints of purple undertones

I LOVE this shade! Its more of a cool toned brown thats almost nearing on taupeish. It kind of reminds me of hot chocolate powder hehe yummmmm :) definitely a really nice shade to use in the crease. Ive been pairing this with He Loves Me Not for everyday and love it! pics to come!

a gorgeous dark greyish lavender

This is a gorgeous grey purple with really pretty shimmer! WIth flash, there is almost a blueish sheen to it as well! :D

Pistol Pistol
a blackened silver (almost gunmetal) with multi colored shimmer, but mainly red shimmer

Pistol Pistol is such a unique color! Its a gunmetal grey that is packed with multi colored shimmer! The result, a super unique color that shines and sparkles from all different angels :) lovely shade to use for a night out!

All Swatches

He Loves Me Not, My Belle, Taylor, Brown Eyed Girl, Premonition, Pistol Pistol

He Loves Me Not, My Belle, Taylor, Brown Eyed Girl, Premonition, Pistol Pistol

Shadows & Product - 4.5/5
These shadows are serious stuff! The shades i chose all pack in gorgeous shimmer and sheen (and for those who like matte, GDE also sells matte shadows) and definitely pack in a ton of pigmentation :) You really dont need much to get the color to really pop! What i really like about GDE shadows, are that they are all very unique. They have an amazing range of colors available as well as a variety of colored shimmer in each. Gorgeous gorgeous shades that you probably wont find anywhere else!

The only .5 i took off was due to the fact that you have to be careful not to overblend these shadows because since they do blend out quite easily, you can start to lose some of the pigmentation with overblending. I recommend you pat these shadows on for the best effect :)

Overall - 4.5/5
These are really really great eyeshadows! Amazing colors, shimmer, sheen and pigmentation, i would really recommend everyone to give them a try. Even if you're just a neutrals girl, there are a TON of gorgeous neutral shades that are so pretty :)

Plus, the GDE team is really nice and always helpful, so you can definitely depend on good service! I love my 6 GDE shadows and if it wasnt for my new years resolution to try to spend less and use what i have, i'd definitely be making an order right now for all the other shadows i had on my wish list! :D

My favourite shadows from the six i received:
My Belle, Brown Eyed Girl and Pistol Pistol

although i really love the other 3 shades as well... lol He Loves Me Not almost seems like a MAC All That Glitters dupe! I will be swatching and comparing those soon so keep an eye out for that :) As well, I will be posting eye looks using the above eyeshadows so look out for that too! :D Anyways, i hope you enjoyed this review! Hope you all have a great week! :D
