Glamour Doll Eyes Eyeshadows - Swatches and Review

I'm still trying to catch up with the plethora of reviews I have lined up.  Today I have six shadows from Glamour Doll Eyes.  Their owner, Vee, called out to bloggers asking if we were interested in reviewing their shadows.  I was definitely interested, but I had reviewed their shadows before and asked if it was okay to do another.  Vee responded and said it was fine, so we sent a few emails back and forth with my color choices.  GDE has a lot of color choices and it's a bit overwhelming to pick just six, luckily Vee sent me a link to the Bestsellers section and that was very helpful.  I chose six out of the Bestsellers and she had it packed and ready to go soon after.

I have a good amount of GDE shadows from past purchases, press samples, and samples from subscription boxes so I was aware of how nice the shadows were.  I also like the fact that they each come individually shrink wrapped to prevent leakage.  They also have no sifters and I find that it's much easier to work without since I find that product tends to collect at the rims and spill out.  Anywho, onto the swatches!

Flawless:  shimmery light peachy pink

Vulnerable:  shimmery rose champagne

Flaunt:  beautiful taupe with slight red sheen

Fiji Mermaid
Fiji Mermaid:  beautiful shimmery blue-green.  This color is very oceanic and I absolutely love how much it glows.  I wasn't going to get this one because blues don't go well with me, but there's enough green to offset that.  I'm so glad I got this one as it's become a favorite of mine!

Feline Fatale
Feline Fatale:  pretty purple. It's very reminiscent of the old school Catwoman outfit.  I mainly got this shade because I'm a huge fan of Catwoman and I usually have to get anything inspired by her.  I do think I prefer her newer black outfits though, they make more sense for a cat burglar..

Undead:  gorgeous matte black base with red shimmer.  I also can't resist shades like this; it's so pigmented and beautiful.  I love how I can see the redness even without a sticky base!

Daylight:  Flawless, Vulnerable, Flaunt, Fiji Mermaid, Feline Fatale, Undead
Flash:  Flawless, Vulnerable, Flaunt, Fiji Mermaid, Feline Fatale, Undead

I'm really thankful that Vee let me do another review for them and I hope this one didn't disappoint!  All of these shades are amazingly pigmented, smooth, and silky.  If they are anything like the other shades I own, they are most likely easy to blend also.  My favorites out of this bunch are Flaunt, Fiji Mermaid, and Undead.  I know I'd be ordering more from GDE if not for the sheer overwhelming number of choices, but the Bestsellers list is a great place to start!  I'm very excited to wear these out and I'm sure Fiji Mermaid will make a stunning lid color.
