FOTD!! GDE look

So today is another work day! And I have decided that on the days that I actually have/want to do makeup on my face that I might as well take some picture!! This way I’ll actually get in some blogging time while getting ready for work LOL!! I mean why not right? Might as well do something that I love while getting ready to do something I love!! So for this look I decided to use GDE not to be truffled with which was the FEB OTM, that I know I said I was going to post about but life just got in the way.

So list of products I used in order to achieve this look

Not to be Truffled with (FEB OTM LE) in the crease and on the lower half of the lash line

Pinch of Pixie used dry on the lid and then You’re Welcome used with glitter fix, and then pinch of pixie again over the top of you’re welcome

Flawless as a highlight

Start a Rumor as a blush

And dandelion highlighter as a highlight on the face.

Also used for foundation was as always Elizabeth Arden Cream Ceremide makeup in Vanilla Shell

Anastasia brow wiz in Dark Brown

Black gel liner by Maybeline

Lashes are Smashbox full exposure mascara in Jet Black

This look was really fun to create. Usually at the end of the year Vee sometimes opens up being able to get the previous OTM’s if you didn’t snag one before. I literally lucked right out and managed to snag a 12 month slot!!

Glamour Doll Eyes part 1 (Swatch, FOTD and Review)

IMG_04491Alright so in the mail last week I received 12 full size jars of different Glamour Doll Eyes pigments to swatch and review and create looks for. I received these pigments on a discount for giving my honest opinion on them. Now before we get started with this, I have to say that even though I got these pigments on a discount it does not effect my opinion on them what so ever. My reviews will also be split up into segments depending on the looks that I do with them. The first review and swatches will be for this look with these shadows in the next picture.

TOP LID Glamour Doll Eyes : cloud coverage, her revenge and just bitten, black gel liner and mascara

Now I have to say that these shadows go on very smooth, they aren’t chalky feeling at all and they have a very nice blending feel to them. I didn’t have any troubles applying them and when I did want to blend it out (or smoke it out depending on how you look at it). For the bright red (Her Revenge) I did use the foil method in order to get it so highly pigmented. Now in order to foil your pigments you need to take a wet brush with some form of mixing medium (I used MAC fix spray +) and then pat on your pigment on to your lid to get it so vibrant. I also used an eyeshadow base to keep it firmly in place. And for that I used Benefit Stay Don’t Stray primer. For the Crease and outer V I used Just Bitten and for that shadow I used a fluffy blending brush with just a touch of dry product on it. To get the product I just shook up the container and when I removed the lid there was more then enough product in the lid alone to achieve the desired effect. Always start with a little bit of product as you are able to build it up if need be. For my highlight on my brow bone I used Cloud Coverage. Which is this really nice matte white. It goes on very smooth and not chalky at all and it just gives the perfect amount of opacity to provide that perfect matte highlight. And we all know how hard it is to find a proper white matte shadow.

LOWER LASH LINE: Glamour Doll Eyes: her revenge, just bitten, lovers lane, eyeliner and mascara.

Starting from the inner corner of the lower lash line I used Her Revenge (foiled) until about my pupil level or around half way, and then with the other half I used Just Bitten and Lovers Lane kinda mixed together to create a smokier effect to it. I tight lined and water lined with a black gel liner, and then also used a liquid matte liner for the wing. I also used a volumizing mascara.

Now on to swatches.

As you can see the colour pay off with these is absolutely amazing and if you get full jars you have enough product here to last years. Depending on how much you use them I’ll get maybe 6 months.
