Dawn Eyes Cosmetics Fall & Halloween and Christmas 2015 Collection Swatches

Welcome back, everyone!  I feel like it's been forever since I did a post on Dawn Eyes Cosmetics, but they are a company I really like!  They usually stay under the radar and don't release quite as often, so it's easy to forget about them.  However, they recently came back and released a whopping THREE new collections!  I only have two of them in this post because I just received the third one yesterday and haven't gotten to swatching it.  

DEC released the Fall/Halloween and Christmas collections around the same time and I was really excited because those seasons are my jam.  I love jewel toned shades that come with fall and Halloween and LOVE holiday colors because Christmas is my favorite holiday.  I hope you enjoy these colors as much as I do!

As you can see, all the shadows in the Christmas collection are very reminiscent of metallic holiday colors and I LOVE them!  The names definitely get me in the holiday spirit and I've already started buying Christmas decorations and humming the songs.  I can't wait to start wearing these shades because they're so festive!  If only I weren't such a homebody and got invited to actual Christmas parties...

  1. Hi Jolie!! Love your blog! I wanted to ask you if you will be swatching the new stuff from Dawn Eyes Cosmetics? I needed to order some shadows and saw new stuff so I wanted to see first before I order. Thank you! Keep up the good work!😊

    1. Thanks for the support, Heather! I received the new collection in the mail a few days ago but haven't had the chance to swatch it yet. It will be coming though and I'm so glad my swatches are helpful! ♥
