Glamour Doll Eyes again!

Alright, so, full disclosure- I was sent these samples for free because I am great and my blog is great. (I’m sure there’s some other reason, but I recently realized I’ve got more than 100 followers and I am going mad with power. MAD, I TELL YOU.)

Samples in jars because I am hecka fancy.

I got to pick out six eyeshadows I wanted to try, and they arrived in nice little jars. I believe these are sample sizes, which works for me because I kind of have too much eyeshadow.

Arm swatches! Left is Pixie Epoxy, middle is over NYX Milk, right is over primer.

Junkie is the red one I got because of course I got a red eyeshadow. It’s a darkish cool red with a gentle purple shimmer. In some lights, it almost looks coppery.

S&M is one to not wear around nosy old ladies who ask about your makeup. It’s a deep purple. I fond the bluish sheen and silver sparkle stand out more than any green tones, except over Milk, where you can kind of see the green.

Parlor Tricks is a bright orchid with a load of shimmer. The green undertones are still more apparent over Milk, which I am going to mark down as the result of science.

More swatches! Same bases.

Pinch of Pixie is a reflective blue-toned silver. It’s just a bit darker than my skin, and would probably be opaque enough to be good on darker skin tones.

It bothers me on an unusual level that Thoughtless is categorized as a matte. It’s a matte blue base with a light copper sheen that reacts surprisingly well to Pixie Epoxy. A lovely colour, but categorizing it as matte was rather… thoughtless.

Cotton Candy is a bright teal with subtle pink shimmer. I personally always think of cotton candy as a blue thing first anyway, since blue is objectively the better flavour.

Pinch of Pixie, Junkie, and Thoughtless on a face.

These are all pretty strong shadows, and they all have subtle shifts in them that set them apart from similar colours. I don’t know if that’s why I picked them, but it’s a neat effect that I appreciate for days when I don’t want to go full duochrome. The pigmentation is fairly strong, and I’m pretty impressed.
