Glamour Doll Eyes - First Impression and Swatches

This is my first time ordering from Glamour Doll Eyes; I believe they were having a Black Friday sale and I heard many good things about this indie company.  I perused their site and finally decided on ten sample jars.  My order came promptly and included a bunch of business cards and two samples.  One of the things that really impressed me was a card stating that if you purchased a sample and decided to buy a full-size jar, they will refund you the money from the sample.  That's the first time I've seen an indie company offer that and I thought it was really nice.

Each jar comes individually shrink-wrapped.

My ten jars and two free samples

I was pleasantly surprised by these shadows.  They were all soft and pigmented; I look forward to using these.  I really liked the free sample of Dusk that was given to me; it's a very beautiful dark blue that doesn't pull too black like some others.  I'm glad I got to try this company and I got an amazing deal on these shadows.
