Glamour Doll Eyes, Review and Swatches

I kinda love Glamour Doll Eyes. Seriously.

I first heard about
Glamour Doll Eyes from myeyeshadowisodd on youtube. I absolutely love her videos. You can clearly see how talented she is. She uses them in quite a lot of her videos, and I became skeptical whether to try them or not. There are millions of beauty videos out there and many companies pay quite a bit of gurus to rave and use their products.

Months later, I decided to give this company a try.

I spent a couple hours on their site deciding over what colors I wanted to purchase. Then I nearly went gaga when I saw the loose glitters. The Eye Lites aka glitters were very fine and ranged from subtly like the lime green and BAM in your face with the red called Fierce. I'm a huge glitter fanatic and with most people they wont use them very often. Only...I will!!!! I also got a few shadows which were super pigmented. And the jar was filled to the top. Kinda messy when opening. But good when spending your money. Check out swatches below.

I think I'd kill for this color. I've never seen red glitter before. Orgasmic.

Needs a blue base to really pop out.

Pretty, but when I wore it I could barely notice it was on.

It's a purple party!

When I opened the jar I fell in love with the color. I thought hello Tinkerbell! When I wore it out, it was really light and look for like a shimmer.

I don't wear a lot of dark greens, but gave this a shot. It's super pigmented and am making it my fall go to color. It blends with ease.

GORGEOUS! I love gold colors but not many are this vibrant. A must have!

Metallic. Shimmery. Beautiful. My new work color.

Blue or purple? Depending on your base you get to decide.

  • pigmented
  • vibrant
  • blendable
  • lot for your money
  • fast delivery
  • great selection of colors
  • glitters are fine and too subtle in color
  • opening jar poofs out and loses some product

Concert Makeup: Black Eyed Peas' The E.N.D. Tour

I'm disappointed in using my phone camera. The quality is just not up to par. But I took this look from The Black Eyed Peas latest CD cover for The E.N.D. If you have seen the cover, its all black and glow-y green.

Gold & Silver Smokey Eyes Featuring Glamour Doll Eyes

Hi guys! I recently got my first order from Glamour Doll Eyes----review will be up soon----and I'm pretty damn impressed. Seriously! The pictures I have taken from my phone again. I used 2 colors from Glamour Doll Eyes, Trophy Wife and Pistol Pistol. I created a golden silver smokey look. Prolly a little dramatic for most jobs, but I wore it to work and then out. I was happy that it didn't fade out during the day as some makeup does with certain companies. You'll have to excuse my laziness I didn't put on any false lashes! ha. Have you guys met my kitten, Peyton? <3>

FOTD: 8/12/2010 Summer Blue/Green Eyes

I don't have really good pictures of this look, cause I had to run to work. But I liked how it turned out. The turquoise/green is such a vibrant pretty color!

Review: Neutrogena's Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes - Hydrating

With all the makeup being used daily on my face, makeup removers are high on my list of priorities.
Neutrogena has been one of my favorite brands for anything face-wise. I usually use their makeup remover towelettes, the original/regular kind. I didn't have any complaints about it. When I was at Ulta, this hydrating kind caught my eye. And on sale I couldn't not buy it. I'm way dangerous like that.

About it:
Ultra-soft conditioning cloths offer you superior cleansing and makeup removal while hydrating and soothing your skin, giving you all the care your skin needs in one simple step.

These cleansing towelettes dissolve all traces of dirt, oil, and makeup—even waterproof mascara. Plus, they leave skin feeling soft and conditioned with a blend of replenishing
hydrators and skin-soothing cucumber and aloe extracts.

  • cleanses
  • soft and hydrating
  • no irritation in eye
  • easy to use wipes
  • resealable package
  • only 25 per package
  • fragrant

FOTD 8/9/2010 Gold/Brown

This is what I wore on my second day of my new job. Since its a new job I didn't want to scare them with my dramaticness. They can wait and see how I am later. :P This was simple I used golds and browns which actually will be great for fall. You guys know me I wear any color in any season.
