I have an indie brand to review today! Someone from Glamour Doll Eyes was kind enough to contact me and ask if I would be interested in reviewing and using some of their eyeshadows. I agreed after reading Phyrra rave about these and discovering that they are indeed cruelty free and have vegan options. We all know I’m an indie brand fan girl, especially with my eyeshadows.
I was sent 6 loose shadows of my choice to try. Their loose shadows are $6 each for full sized, and they have sample size options starting at a little over $1, which is something I love about quite a few indie brands. I have never used a whole eyeshadow…ever. It’s rare that I even hit pan on any. So, having an option to try a sample out is amazing, because then if I truly love it I can commit to a full size without feeling guilty.
First off, the packaging is pretty adorable. I love the little photo and logo on the lid. These also arrived without a sifter, which is a plus for me. I actually hate sifters in anything. I don’t know why, I find them to be super annoying. Maybe that’s just me.
When I opened these up it was very reminiscent of my other loose indie brand shadows. Finely milled and super pretty. I tried to pick out some neutral matte and shimmer shades and a couple of fun shades to get a feel for all their formulas.
This is an online brand, which means you can only find them on the Glamour Dolls website.
My review: I found these eyeshadows to be easy to work with and blend out overall. They lasted all day on my eyes with primer, and are very pigmented. Loose shadows tend to be more pigmented, in my opinion, simply because it’s easier to get product on a brush. Now, as always with loose shadows, I recommend tapping your brush or putting your eye makeup on first before your face makeup. This will prevent fallout ruining your face makeup if you’re new to loose shadows. I’ve always enjoyed loose shadows though and own quite a few!
Swatches from bottom to top:
Catrina: Not vegan. This is a gorgeous light purple with a blue/gold duo chrome effect. This shade is pretty light by itself and needs a glitter primer or white base to show up more true to shade.
Chivalrous: Vegan. Red with gold shimmer. This one was a little harder to swatch with a brush. Still a gorgeous shade if you love reds and gold.
Charming Society: Vegan. Sheer/White (on my skin tone) shade with green, blue, and gold shifts. This looks so stunning as an inner corner highlight! Probably my most used shade so far from what I have tried. Highly recommend.
Martini Olive: Vegan. Deep matte green. This shade is so lush and a must have if you love green and olive shades. This is my second most used shade because I have a thing for deep olives and forest green.
Unveil: Vegan. Deep almost maroon red with a slight purple shift. This shade is right up my alley for the crease and outer corner. Creates a gorgeous maroon smokey effect!
Undead: Vegan. This is described as a black shade, but in my opinion this is more maroon with hint of purple. This is still so lovely though! If you’re into intense shades this would be a great alternative to black in a smokey eye.
Overall, I love the shades I picked out and will definitely be purchasing some more myself in the future. I kind of want to check out some pressed shades. Many of the loose shadow shades are also in pressed form, which is pretty neat.
