FOTD GDE LOOK #2

So I have another look for you today, I really wanted to use some of the more unique colours in my collection, and as I never use greens, I figured. Hey why not?? Not only that, but I wanted to use 2 of the shades from the Anti-Vday collection.

I used Fallen Angel and is described as a pale peach with an orange sheen, orange sparkle and a darkened grey undertone. They show up best when you pat them over your primer/base rather than swiping. I found this colour to be more yellow/gold ten peach to be honest. Its still a super pretty colour just not what it is described as.

Next I used Side Boob and is described as a swampy green with an orange sheen and a holographic pink sparkle. I found this colour to be a more forest green with a hint of mint in it. There is sparkle but I didn’t really see any orange sheen when I blended it out on my lids.

I have attached some pictures of the shades right here.

It’s an everyday kinda look kind of day…..

So here I have for you an everyday kind of look. Now my all time favorite colour happens to be URBAN DECAY Tease, its out of the naked 2 palette but you can also get it as a single. I use it almost every single day as a blending/crease colour. I find it is the perfect matte taupe colour that just suits my skin tone amazingly. That being said the only other shadows that I really use are the Glamour Doll Eyes eye shadows and lately I have been really really loving You’re Welcome, Prankster and pinch of pixie. They are just the perfect shimmery glittery shadows that suit my every day look. Down below I have inserted a look with Tease, You’re Welcome and GDE flawless as a highlight. Pair You’re Welcome with GDE Glitter fix and along with some very black lashes and a pretty cat eye liner is pretty much all I wear to work almost everyday. My foundation is Elizabeth Arden cream cereimide makeup in Vanilla Shell and you have my every day look. I might do blush but most of the time I don’t!

OITNB Anti Valentines day collection

So I managed to snag all of the shadows for the anti valentines day collection from glamour doll eyes, the pigments that is. This collection will be restocked and I will be looking at getting the 2 cream shadows because well its glamour doll eyes and they are just like pokemon which means you gotta catch them all right??? Now a good chunk of these shadows sold out in seconds but I managed to get my hands on all of the loose pigments and the highlighter (1 pigment and highlighter I managed to snag during the restock).

Now what Vee said is that she will continue to restock these until she until the labels run out, which makes me super excited because that means that I might be able to snag the 2 cream shadows that I really want to try. I will also be posting the OTMs that I receive at the time that I get them, that being said I live in Canada so I get them a week to 2 weeks after everyone else gets theirs…. Stupid customs.

Down below I have attached some pictures of the colours that I actually have (all of the pigments plus the highlighter) I won’t be doing swatches though as for the next week I will be playing around with these and coming up with different looks!!

Alright so in that first picture, we have the full collection that I have in present (minus liners, blush and 2 cream shadows) The highlighter is featured at the bottom 🙂

Third Picture is Hall Monitor and it is described as a sky blue with a coppery red sheen and a green to gold sparkle. This color is inspired by Bennett.

Fourth Picture is Fallen Angel and is described as a pale peach with an orange sheen, orange sparkle and a darkened grey undertone. This color is inspired by Pennsatucky. The sparkle particles in this color are a bit bigger than our normal sparkles. They show up best when you pat them over your primer/base rather than swiping.

Fourth Picture is Lesbian Request Denied and is described as a dark gray base with a pink sheen, shimmer and shine. This color is inspired by Healy. 100% of the proceeds from this particular shade will be donated to the NOH8 Campaign. The NOH8 Campaign is a charitable organization whose mission is to promote marriage, gender and human equality through education, advocacy, social media, and visual protest. Each eye shadow purchase will make a small difference!

And last but not least and not actually a part of this **collection** per say is Expecting Trouble. Now this was the February gift with purchase and the only way you could it is if you spent $10 US not including shipping. This beautiful shade is described as a dark brown base with a dirty lavender overlay, blue to purple duochrome shift and lots of blue & purple sparkles.

Glamourdolleyes, swatch and review and FOTD!!!!! Part 3

Glamourdolleyes, swatch and review and FOTD!!!!! Part 3

So lets just face it. I’m in love with Glamourdolleyes. Yes that’s right. Move over other pigments, this mama has found her favorite brand. Period. I honestly don’t think I will ever go back. I mean who could give up super luxurious pigments that pack such a punch that they will last you forever?? They are so versatile and because Vee knows her stuff, she has it labeled on the bottom of the jar whether or not they are vegan/ non vegan lip and eye safe ect. And she has every colour of the rainbow plus some! There are mattes and shimmers, and glitters, and sheers and GAH just EVERYTHING! She is constantly coming out with different colours (I have another 13 on the way shhhhhh). And I vow that one day I will have them all. That’s right. I will have every single pigment that Glamourdolleyes comes out with because that is just how much I love them. Seriously check them out. I bought these pigments on discount as a blogger to review on my blog.

On to the swatches and the look! For the look that I did, I used Angel wings, Candy Floss, Stellar, All Nighter and Glam Girl I also used Benefit’s stay don’t stray primer and MAC fix+ spray for foiling.

Left side is foiled on all swatches with MAC fix+ spray
Right side is dry pigment applied with my finger
I have primer on the whole section of my arm

Now that you have seen the swatches in the previous picture lets speak about them a touch.

Angel Wings is a white pearl with a tiny bit of purple reflex it it, so that when the light catches it it really just glows.

Candy floss is this perfect pink, when foiled it gives it this metallic sheen to it that is just breath taking. This is one of my favorite colours and I find myself reaching for it more and more often.

Stellar is a blackened purple, it kind of reminds me of a bruise, but it is a staple in my collection due to the fact that I am constantly doing purple smokey eyes, or dramatic looks that are all about purple (it’s my favorite colour).

All Nighter is a blue toned purple, that when foiled pulls more blue to it, its super creamy and pigmented and a tiny bit goes a super long way. And last but certainly not least is,

Glam Girl. This one is my favorite shade of purple, its like this pinky purple shimmer that it just blends so nicely with Candy floss and  All Nighter ( just wait you’ll see. )

THE LOOK!

Glamourdolleyes FOTD and review #2!

IMG_0529

So a while ago I went and bought myself a whole bunch of pigments from Glamour Doll Eyes. Now I have been using these pigments for a while now (over a month) and honestly I cannot wait to own more of these babies! They are so much fun to play with, now the look that I did for these 4 specific shadows well its over 3 weeks old. I went and took a bunch of pictures of the actual look, but when it got to the point of where the swatching was supposed to happen, I slacked off. Majorly. So now I have swatches! YAY ME!

The inspiration that I got from this look is from this picture:

INSPIRATION!

Isn’t she just beautiful??? I love the way that her porcelain skin just makes her eyes and her lips just POP! Seriously in love with this look! So I tried to copy it as best as I could, and honestly I’m really happy with the results that I was able to do! I even did my nails too hehe! Alright on to the pictures of what I was able to accomplish!

Finished Look!

Overall I think I did pretty good, I don’t look like her, and I didn’t have a professional take my photo for me, but I think the makeup speaks for itself.
This pigment was sooo easy to work with, its super smooth and milled just perfectly and it is sooo highly pigmented, a teeny tiny bit goes a really really long way! You should check them out and give them a try!! I know you will not be disappointed! You can purchase these products ——–> HERE!<———

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.

IMG_04401

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.

Swatches

From left to right we have Cloud Coverage foiled and dry, Lovers Lane foiled and dry, Just Bitten foiled and dry, Her Revenge dry and foiled.
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. If you click the names of the shadows here it will take you directly to the shadows to purchase them yourselves. If your interested in any of her other shadows if you click
